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 who is 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

Oooh washi tape


Made a start on the Christmas cards, despite spilling red glitter glue all over the first. the stamps of Santa and the reindeer were free with a magazine so really inexpensive to produce. Couldn't resist the washi tape from Hobbycraft, its lovely to work with and adds a nice border.

Octopi and hedgies everywhere.


Here are a few octopus's I made for a friend for her Christmas fayre. they only take half an hour to make so am sure they will be one of my favourite makes.



And some hedgies for chalky, this lady is so kind to me and everyone she knows http://chalkygilbert.blogspot.co.uk/ pop on her blog and see her lovely work.
