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.

Advent 2023 has Arrived

I feel I owe everyone an apology, I have not posted anything for weeks and weeks.  I am really sorry but, you know what it is like, life has got in the way .... again.  But you all knew I would be here for Advent.  Sharing my Christmas cards and, of course, those Elves!

Just one Christmas card today .......

The image for this card came from my 2022 calendar, December of course.  I mounted it on some old gold card and some Stamping Up Real Red card.  Then everything went onto an 8 x 8 inch card blank.  I think the sentiment was from Craftwork Cards.

The moment we have been waiting all year for - the return of those naughty Elves from the Shelf. 

Danny and Daisy are back with a few of their friends and I can see they have bought a chocolate Advent Calendar for each of the girls.

I cannot wait to see what they get up to this year.  Any guesses?

Happy Advent.
