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.

My niece has been staying with us for a few days and the two of us have been spending our evenings crafting, it has been wonderful to have someone to share ideas with.

We spent the other evening playing around with candles, this is the one I decorated.

The image is Saturated Canary's Rebecca, which I got from Crafty Boots on-line shop, they have a large range of stamps, especially Saturated Canary ones.

I had forgotten how much fun this is to do and am definitely going to be doing it again soon.



  1. Love it! I love this technique and recently put photos onto candle for my mum and brother. Brilliant presents. Not tried stamping & colouring yet though! Take care Zo xx

  2. Hi Dionne
