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.

Letters in Your Name


I must apologise for for not posting anything for a while.  I have been busy crafting but, as I have been making Christmas presents, I cannot share them with you until after Christmas.  However, I do not think my 2 year old niece logs onto my blog as a rule so I am taking a chance and sharing this present with you.

I bought an 18 inch (46cm) high MDF letter 'L' from a very nice man called Barry on ebay and covered it with crayons.  However, before I started attaching the crayons I fixed a picture hook to the back of the letter - it took a bit of trial and error to get the balance right.

As you can see I had to join several crayons together for the longer parts of the letter but I made sure all the crayons in one row were the same colour and I took care not to rip the paper when I had to cut them.

This was so much fun to make.



  1. Brilliant! So neatly done, you are so patient. Your niece will love it for sure - and if she doesn't , I just happen to know someone whose name begins with 'L' - tee hee!

  2. This is brilliant!

    Thank you so much for leaving a lovely comment on my blog

    Have a lovely day!
