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.

Project Life

Good morning.

I love scrapbooking but struggle to to find the time to sit down and really enjoy myself doing it.  A few days ago I went to a Project Life Workshop to find out more about the concept and to have a go.

It was a great afternoon and very relaxing, here is my first attempt at a two-page spread.

I can't wait to get on with the rest of the album now.



  1. A wonderful way to preserve those precious memories.

  2. Fabulous! I'm doing a PL album for this year. Love how easy it is. I have a whole bundle so everything works but I do print off bit bobs from Pinterest to add more of my character to it. I also have added images I've coloured too. Tc Zo xx

  3. These pages look great, love the arrangement and that central title display is fabulous. Hope we get to see some more. xx
