Living in Spain and bringing up a Spanglish family during the current 'crisis' and trying various ways to make some 'dinero'. Enjoying life in the sun, crafting and blogging as much as possible.

Driftwood Makes Up to Date

I have been busy working on my craftfest stall for 1st November on internet so not had much time for blogging. So here is an update of the things I have been making from my beach finds.......






I dug out my old pyrography pen that I bought 9 years ago, used once, then never used again.......I think I might be using it a lot now!




This was going to be a wreath but the wire wasn't strong enough. I am going to get a proper wire wreath frame to make one.

Ecomercado Lucainena de las Torres

First one after the summer - was a very busy day and lots of stall holders. I love this market. Unfortunately they aren't going to be monthly any more - quarterly! so the next one isn't until Feb 2015.

Day at Beach with Hubby

As soon as we dropped the little monster off at school we snook off to the beach to gather some more finds. What a beautiful day, no-one around and the place to ourselves.....bliss

El Toyo

It was a choice between doing the market in Nijar (which we know is a good one) or El Toyo. We opted for El Toyo to see what it was like but unfortunately, like our similar summer experiences there, it wasnt very good for us. So we won't be back here again. Shame too as the location was stunning.
