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.

A Hunkyfory Christmas

As many of you will know, I was very late making my Christmas cards this year.  In order to get any cards made at all, I decided to buy matching toppers and designer papers from Hunkydory Crafts to make them.  I just added some bits and bobs from my stash to come up with my own unique designs.  In order to keep each post manageable I decided the post a few cards every day.  

I should also apologise, these cards have a highly reflective surface and I had to turn then away from the camera in order to avoid the worst of the glare off the flash.



  1. The images in these kits are stunning and your designs showcase them fabulously. The stag is so regal and almost magical. One like that appears on the nearby moors from time to time and it is almost as if by magic. There's something about a dachshund that I can't resist and I love these ones in their cosy jumpers - can't be easy being a dachshund in the snow. I seem to think that there was a time when we used to get a lot more cards with pheasant on. Seeing these here makes me nostalgic to have them make a comeback. xxx

    1. I know that these kits make me lazy but I can't help but be plesed with the end result and they are so quick and easy to put together. My only real regret is my lack of photographic prowess.

      On the other hand, I look at your cards and think that I really should put in more of an effort, your snowflake card is stunning.
