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.

Happy Birthday to Moo!

 If you have been visiting my blog recently, you cannot fail to have spotted this lovely kit from Honkydory which I have been dipping into for the past week or two.  It really is a lovely kit to work with.

The kit contains toppers, matching backing papers and lots of little tags, sentiments and even matching inserts, all I have had to add from my craft stash are mirri card, ribbon, card and glue.  However, between laying out this design and cutting the cards and gluing them into place, I managed to loose one of the tags.  I have looked all over for it, I went through what is left of the kit, checked to floor, I even went through the bin, but I cannot find the little tag with a chick on it with a cringe inducing pun.

A week later and I have found the missing tag, along with the rest of the Hunkydory kit, so I can now tell you that the kit is one of their Adorable Scorable range called Animal Crackers and, apparently, it was a free gift, so apologies if you were hoping to get your hands on a copy.

Now that the missing tag has turned up I can finish the card.  The letters and numbers are from a very old Kanban kit.

Enjoy the rest of your day.



  1. I love the cute image and cringe worth sayings :) I have a craft black hole like that -you are using something-put it down for a minute and completely vanishes!!!

    1. This set has been fun to work with Carol and it is not as old as the Kanban sets. I have deliberately not sent this card yet in the hope that the missing tag will turn up, but no sign of it yet but you can bet that I will find it the day after I use the card!

  2. Another fun card from the kit and so beautiful. Made me smile.

    1. Hi Faith

      This kit makes me smile all of the time I am working with it, in that respect it is probably the most fun kit have invested in.

      Thanks for dropping by again today, I enjoy your company very much. I would introduce you to Carol but you probably already know her work as everyone knows Carol.

      Have a great weekend.

  3. I have had a real treat this morning catching up with your blog and being able to leave my comments - thank you. (I don't seem to be getting notifications any more :( Sorry you lost a tag - it will surface at some point I'm sure. It hasn't taken anything away from your lovely card.xxx

    1. You have had a real marathon today, thank you for sticking with it because I always enjoy reading your comments.

      I have kept this card back in the hope that the tag will turn up somewhere in my crafty stash.

      I think you should treat yourself, you deserve it!
