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.

Letter S


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, I really appreciate all of the comments I receive.

Today I wanted to show you another decorated MDF letter.

These letters are so simple to make and they make great gifts.  I purchased an 8 inch letter from Barry on ebay.  I gave it a coat of Gesso and, once that was dry, I painted it baby pink using acrylic paint.  I also purchased a bag of mixed pink buttons from ebay and used these to cover the painted letter.  Once everything was dry I cleaned any excess glue from the surface.



  1. Absolutely love it and the way the large buttons have been placed so creatively. A great gift idea, I agree.

  2. Wonderful! I have always loved buttons - I have jars of them. One would think I would learn how to use them!

  3. This looks good enough to eat. There are some gorgeous buttons in there and I love that it's dotted with larger buttons. xx


Thank you for visiting my blog, I look forward to reading your feedback on my work. I hope you will visit again.
