About Me

Hi and a warm welcome to my blog. My little place in the cyber crafting world. I'm Elaine and I'm 42 years old and married to the most amazing man I could wish for. My passion is all forms of crafting and I'm extremely lucky to be on the design teams for Leonie Pujol and Toni of Darroch at stamps by me limited . I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job.

Mon Amour & spellbinders

Good evening, what a busy hectic week I have had. Work super busy due to stocktake.... Here's a picture of me and my best craft buddy & work mate Maria, this was taken at 02.45 in the morning outside work. 

Talking of Maria it was her birthday Thursday and I made her a card and matching gift bag from the wonderful DT parcel I got from jones crafts. I used g45 mon amour. It has the prettiest papers...

We celebrated by friends going out to Nandos for a meal...

A really lovely day but bittersweet as also the same day as my little brother passed away...19 years ago. I dedicate this post to my love for him.

Thanks for stopping by xx
