Hello, my name is Dionne and I have been crafting for a very long time. As a very young child my mother tried to teach me to knit, it was a disaster. However, it must have sparked an interest in making things and, partly to prove that I was not totally useless and partly because I really wanted to make things, I taught myself to crochet. Over the years I have developed a love of cross stitch and all types of paper craft ..... I eventually even taught myself to knit.

I am married to a very understanding man, thank goodness, because I spend all my time either crafting, thinking about crafting or talking about crafting. I am hopeless at housework and dinner is often late!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Braid in My Hair


Many thanks for popping by today.  My apologies for my lack of posts this week but things have been a little hectic here, what with one thing another.  However, I have couple of minutes to post this card.  The image is called Braid in My Hair and it is from A Day for Daisies.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on silver mirri and blue card.

The polka dot papers are from Papermania and the lace is from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the rest of the embellishments came from my stash.

There are still a few days for you to enter your 'Feather' Creations into the current Crafty Boots Challenges.
