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.

Instant Snowman

Good morning, I hope you are well?

Countdown to Christmas Day 16.  My Advent Countdown Tag Book gave me An Instant Snowman Mix today.  I live in the south of the country and we do not get very much snow, so this could come in very handy.

The face masks today feature red and green hats and boots, just as you would imagine Santa and his elves wearing.

Talking of elves, what was Daisy getting up to last night ........... 

Have you spotted where she is hiding?

And here are the new decorations she promised, it is stickers of her elf friend and lots of toys and gifts.

Just one pic from Coco and Louis today.  What do they think they are doing?

Have a great day.



  1. I won't say how long it took me to find Daisy but let's just say it was longer than it should have done! I love those little presents! The mask is so festive and jolly, it would cheer anyone up.

    1. Oh dear, is it time to visit the opticians? Do you remember last year when Daisy hid in the flour bin?
