Welcome


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.

House-Mouse at Christmas

I think the House-Mouse range is adorable and last year I bought several new stamps to add to my collection, this cute little mouse decorating him pine cone was one of them.  You will not be surprized to hear that this image is called 'Pinecone Tree'.


The backing paper came from one of my Housemouse CDs and the little flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is from a 'Me to You' paper stack.


 I coloured the image with my polychromos pencils and mounted it on some gold card.  Finally, I added some Glossy Accents to the star to make is catch the light.
