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.

Snowmen Decorations

Happy New Year to you and your family.

The current Crafty Boots Challenge is 'Snow and Sparkle' and my project today is a pair of snowmen - to be honest no snow was involved in the making of these cute characters.

Directions on how to make these little guys is currently doing the rounds on Facebook.  They looked so easy to make I just had to have a go for myself.

I ordered all the bits I needed from ebay and they were here in under a week, pretty good going for the week before Christmas.  Between you and me, these really were as easy to make as the video clip looks.

There is still time for you to enter this challenge, good luck.



  1. These are totally adorable and you have done them so well. I'm just sorry I didn't get chance to make any this Christmas but am going to put them on my to do list for the next one! xx

    1. Aren't they cute? They really were easy to make, I think they took literally 10 minutes to make and the worse part was burning my fingers on the hot glue (I should use it more, I need the practice).



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