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.

The Last of the Cleaning!

I wish it were the last time I had to clean, wouldn't that be brilliant, a self cleaning house - and I don't mean those silly cleaners which cause so much trouble in crime TV shows.

As promised, I am back today with the last of my current set of Teddy Bo & Co inspired spring cleaning cards.

This image is called 'Cleaning Bo', I coloured it with Promarkers, then I mounted it on pearlescent card.

The paper is from Docraft and the ribbon and sentiment are from my stash.

We are still looking for your 'spring' projects over at Crafty Boots Challenges, keep them coming.



  1. Absolutely love this image and fab colouring as always. The background papers and card look great with it. xx

    1. Thank you Lisette. Wouldn't it be great to have an army of helpers to do the spring cleaning?



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