A very warm welcome to my blog, which is mostly about card-making, a bit about work and family, and a few odds and ends. I am fairly new to this blogging lark, so please bear with me if I make some glaring errors.
I'll be delighted if you would like to become a follower, so please leave me details of your blog, as I'd love to visit.

Natasha is two!
Our youngest grand-daughter, Natasha, was two this week, and she has a shoe and bag fetish!! It really doesn't matter who owns the shoes or slippers - Mummy, Daddy or her brothers - she loves to try them on, and walk around the house in them. So, of course, this image from Mo Manning, which I coloured with copic markers, was an absolute must. We bought her a Peppa Pig pram as she is truly obsessed, and it was very funny to see her walking her baby in the pram, carrying her Peppa bag, and wearing her Dad's boots! Her obsession with the little pink porker is monumental, and early one morning as her mum picked her up out of her cot, instead of her first words being "Hiya Mummy" as normal, she simply shouted "PIG!!" Looking at all her Peppa birthday presents though, I think she may have been suffering from pig overload! Even her cake had Peppa Pig on it, which she was very excited about.
The papers and the decoupaged floral spray are Kay Miller, and the pretty lace and roses are WOC. There are a few tiny gems on the flowers, and the circular sentiment was computer generated, and then cut out with Nesties. The inside of the card is decorated to match the outside.
Thanks very much for coming to visit my blog. It's lovely to hear from you all, and I really appreciate the lovely comments you leave.
Welcome to the Ballerina Craft blog.
Well you'll find lots of them on my blog, as I often make cards for dancers, having been a ballet teacher for more years than I care to remember. You can find former pupils of Woodley School of Ballet dancing in ballet companies in Britain and in Europe, singing and dancing in West End Theatres, on TV or touring the UK, or on cruises in far flung places, with several former dancers teaching at home and abroad.
I'm now semi-retired due to health problems, but still find time to teach dance and craft, as well as have fun with our seven grandchildren. I have been married to my dearest husband Joe, for over 43 years, and we have three wonderful children, who are all happily settled with their own families, and we also have a dear step-grand-daughter, with her own beautiful bundle of joy, and a seriously cute toddler, so family life takes up a lot of time! The beautiful Lladro ballerina above was bought for me by pupils and friends for the Ballet school's 25th Anniversary in July 2007.
