Welcome


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.

Coming Home

This week seems to be flying by, before I completely loose touch with it, I wanted to share another card with you.

It is my second Design Team piece for the current Crafty Boots Challenges, which is entitled "Life's and Beach" or "What I did on my Holiday's".


I do not know where this harbour is but it reminded me of my childhood holiday's - a cross between the Norfolk Boards and Cornwall (although that lighthouse seems a little unlikely in either place).  This beautiful image came from Delicious Doodles and is called 'Coming Home'.


I coloured it with my F&C polychromos pencils and mounted it on silver mirri and powder blue card.  The backing paper came from a Craftwork Cards paper pad called Harbour Boulevard and the anchor came from my stash.
