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.

Wear your Pink Ribbon with Pride

As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and, in recognition of this, the current Crafty Boots Challenge is to use pink in your project. Your project does not have to be about Breast Cancer Awareness, although it is great to get the message out there, you just have to use pink somewhere in your project.


What better image to get the message out there to wear your pink ribbon with pride than this one from Teddy Bo & Co called 'What a Jolly Bow'.  I coloured Jolly with pink Promarkers and mounted him on some pink papers from my stash and some gold mirri.  I also added a loop of pink ribbon.

There is still time to enter your pink projects into this Crafty Boots Challenge.

Good luck.

    1. Sometimes a card comes together just as you imagined it. For once I got the colours of the pens just right to match the papers.
