Hi, Welcome To My Blog

I love various different types of crafts and have had a dabble at most over the years, some with greater success than others. I believe that apart from loving and giving, being creative is the next most important thing to do. There is something about being creative that taps into something deep within us that makes us feel good with the world. But then we were made in the image of God, God The Creator... so I guess being creative will be second nature to us if we allow. The problem is that many people will not have a go because they make the mistake of measuring themselves against others... and that is just not a good thing to do. I create because I like to create, not because I have to impress anyone else or be better than anyone else. I created this blog with a lot of help from my son-in-law, as a personal scrap book that I am happy to share with others if they wish to take a look.... Enjoy <><

A Visit to The Range in Wigan

Val's Birthday card using the new spine technique I had learned with some stamping to create the tree picture

My first attempt at making a fancy spine as taught by Louise

This was lovely Louise who spent so much time showing Sue and I different techniques which we then came home and had a play trying out.

These circle cards were our interpretation of Louise's card.  


  1. such an interesting technique and your cards are so pretty in those colors!!

  2. Wow! More fab cards! So pleased you were inspired! Shame about the picture of me though!!!! ;) Louise xx

    1. Oh Louise, fancy you finding me... Lovely to hear from you.... Sorry you don't like the photo, do you want me to remove it or was it because you just don't ever like photo's of yourself? Sue any I so enjoyed ourselves with you. I will come and meet you again when I know you will be there.

  3. Lol!!! That's OK!! Don't worry! I'll try to let you know when I'm next up in Wigan!
