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.

Hugs ad Kisses

I'm a little late with this post, so apologies.  It is a dark and miserable day here today and there were a few flakes of something resembling snow just as it was getting light.  Luckily nothing came of it, but the temperature stayed very low all day.


You may have seen from an earlier post that I ran out of ink for my printer the other day, so whilst I am waiting for the replacement cartridges to arrive I have raided my stash of bits and bobs.  These have been in a folder for a long time waiting for me to get around to making them into a card (actually there is more than one folder) - I do not know whether others have a pile like this, or if it is just me.  Consequently,  I am not sure where anything came from from.  I coloured the image with Promarkers and I popped a little Glossy Accents on her hair bands.  I mounted the image on some silver mirri and Night of Navy card, which I had embossed.

Over at Crafty Boots Challenges the current challenge is titled 'Love is in the Air'.  I hope you will have the opportunity to enter some of your own work.

    1. Thank you Pamellia, I was trying to get the background to reflect the shabby, yet soft girlieness of the image.

  2. More fabulous colouring and I love the crackle background. We should have swapped places. I'll take your dark and miserable with a few flakes and you can have the bright sunshine from up here. Still cold though! xx
