Living the simple life

I am Goth by nature, a carer by choice and a crafter by habit. living the Old Style way, spending less and making what I can myself. I follow Money Saving Expert and NYK forum avidly and am working to be debt free.


I shop wisely as every penny counts, my stock cupboard is my solution to any problem.


My home is full of craft stuff and I love making things for my grandson Michael and grand- daughter Bethany who are the reason I get up everyday. My kids are the best in the world and I thank them for being there for me and John

Much prettyness


Couple more makes from May, I am so productive that I am now running out of space to store everything. I have joked that I could do an entire craft fair on my own but really its true. These are both cushion covers. The circular one is from Attic 24's blog  http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/ which is full of amazing crochet with such simple instructions. The square one is just playing round with granny squares.

I love Tilda

Am in love with my new Tilda stamp - bargain buy from Hobbycraft £3.99 because the front paper was missing. It stamps so well and pro markers are perfect for it.
