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.

Good morning, I hope you had a good weekend.
It is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas around here, with a family get together on Saturday and lunch with friends yesterday. Sadly this left little time for crafting and really do need to make a few more Christmas cards.
The current challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges is 'Christmas', rather handy under the circumstances as it has given me the opportunity to make this card.
This sweet little image is from a Day for Daisies, it is called 'A Doll for Me'. I coloured it with Promarkets and a little bit of paper piecing. The backing papers are from my stash, come to think of it, so are the glitter card, Christmas charm and little pearl, The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
