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 L


I am back today to share another of my button covered letters.  I created this one for my dear friend Lisette, aka Mrs Beez.

I purchased an 8 inch MDF letter from Barry on ebay.  I gave it a coat of Gesso and, once that was dry, I painted it lilac using pearlescent acrylic paint - his paint has a lovely textured sparkle to it.

I also purchased a bag of mixed purple/lilac buttons from ebay and used these to cover the painted letter.  Once everything was dry I cleaned any excess glue from the surface.
