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.

Autumn Butterflies

I mentioned that hubby and I had been away celebrating our anniversary.  I wanted to share with you the gorgeous card we received from my good friend Lisette, aka Mrs Beez.  Isn't it a stunner?

And it wasn't alone in the envelope.  Lisette very generously sent me this fabulous poppy booch, I adore the way it sparkles.  It is now on my jacket, so everyone else can admire it when I go shopping.

I think that butterflies must be in the air, so to speak, because Lisette's card was not the only butterfly we were given last week.  We also had this fabulous cake, I still cannot get over how amazing it looked.

But. it did not just look good, it was one of the best cakes I have tasted in many years - but just between the two of us, I could not bring myself to eat those gorgeous little butterflies.



  1. Beautiful card, love the colours and the gorgeous butterfly!
