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.

Ho, Ho, Ho

Another week almost over, I know I am always saying it, but where do the days go?

Regular visitors to the space will know that the theme of the current Crafty Boots Challenge is 'Ribbon or Lace'.  I felt like a kid in a sweet shop when I read this, you should see how much ribbon and lace I have managed to squirrel away over the years.

This fabulous little guy is called Christmas Mouse and he is from Bugaboo Digital Stamps. After colouring the image with Promarkers and my new metalic pencils, I added a little glitter to his hat.  I then mounted the image on some silver mirri and blue card.  The paper and tag are from a Forever Friends Christmas stack.  The ribbon has a pretty silver trim.

Your will be amazed to see all of the fabulous designs from my fellow Team Mates, please make sure you got to the Crafty Boots Challenges blog and see them for yourself.

Don't forget the enter your projects in the Challenge.

Good luck.



  1. Totally sweet Dee!! Sorry, I just realized that I never asked if it's OK to call you Dee?? Anyway, love your little mouse guy, I've often thought of tying bells to my pup's tail so I can find her! HAHA!! hugs :)

    1. You can call me whatever you like, but no one actually calls me Dee. When I was trying to come up with a name for my blog Dionne's Craft Room sounded stiff and unfriendly so I reverted to a childhood name of Dee. However, when I became a teenager I thought I had outgrown such childish things and insisted that everyone stopped calling me it. As I have got older I realise that such things are unimportant and I answer to most things.
