Rainbow Bridge


Hello, I hope you are staying safe and well. Today I wanted to share The Rainbow Bridge poem with you. It is 20 years since my Golden Tammy passed away, but I still miss her every day. I know many others are in the same boat too. I have made these Rainbow Bridge hearts as a memorial  to our beloved pets. If you would like to make one there are more details about the easy steps on theCalico Craft Blog


Rainbow Bridge

There is a bridge connecting heaven and earth
It is called Rainbow Bridge because of its many colours
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,
hills, valleys with lush green grass
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this special place
There is always food and water and warm spring weather
The old and frail are young again
Those who are maimed are made whole again
They play all day with each other
There is only one thing missing
They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth
So each day they run and play until the day comes
when one suddenly stops playing and looks up !
The nose twitches ! The ears are up !
The eyes are staring ! And this one suddenly runs from the group !
You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet,
you take him or her into your arms and embrace
your face is kissed again and again,
and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting pet
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated

Alice In Wonderland Tea Party



Wouldn’t it be nice to be in Wonderland right now! With this in mind I have made an Alice InWonderland Tea Party using Calico Craft Parts. I love to use the blank mdf  pieces as I can decorate them anyway I  want, and I can use them in so many different ways! I hope you can pay Alice a visit  today to discover more, she is over on the Calico Craft Parts Blog.

Take care and stay safe xx

Easter Wreath



I hope you are staying safe and well, in this horrible, horrible time. Easter will certainly not be the same for any of us this year. I made this Easter Wreath some time ago for Calico Craft Parts, and as Easter remains such a special time of year for so many of us I decided to still share it. More details about the wreath are on the Calico Craft Parts Blog.

I hope your Easter is as happy as it can be under the circumstances. Next Easter will  be so very different xxxx

Valentine Animals Printers Tray


I am so happy to share my first project as a member of the very talented Calico Craft Parts Design Team. I love animals so I couldn’t wait to paint these lovely mini sized animals. This is the first printer tray I have made, it was really easy and fun to put together. The animals left their muddy paw, and hoof prints  all around the edges! (Hero Art stamps)

All of the details about how I made the Valentine Tray are on the Calico Craft Parts Blog

Wishing you a very happy Valentine’s Day, thank you so much for visiting xx

I would like to enter my Valentine Animals Printer Tray into the following challenges.

Moon Gazing Fox


It is good to be crafting again, after being very unwell. I am rather late with my second guest project for Calico Crafts, and I want to thank them so much for being very kind and understanding.  I love creating with their products which are fabulous, and there are so many to choose from! The possibilities are endless. There are more details about my Moon Gazing plaque over on Calico Crafts and Parts blog, so I hope you can pay them a visit. 

I also need to thank Happy Little Stampers for selecting my Never Lose Your Sense of Wonder watercolour card as a winner. For some odd reason, which I still have not worked out, I am unable to comment on some blogs and Happy Little Stampers is one of them. 

Thank you for visiting me today, I hope you all is ok with you, I will visiting everyone’s blogs soon. xx

Snowman Scenic Square



I have been busy creating a half dozen of these adorable scenic boxes. Before assembling the mdf pieces 
I painted them and then added a coat of crackle.Sitting happily inside this one you can find a snowman or snowlady, a snowflake, both painted and decorated. Some dried elements, flowers pine cone etc, and some sumptuous  pink berries.
I also used mini polystyrene balls, and oh my goodness they went absolutely everywhere! I think I will still be finding them at Easter!




Thank you for stopping by, I would like to enter my little scene into the Mini Marvel challenge at A Vintage Journey
