Leonie projects…

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you had a good bank holiday weekend

The weather was a bit rubbish here but I had a visit from my precious Great Niece Tayla. She’s nearly walking now and got her first shoes which is a big milestone…  I know!! how is it even possible, I was only just telling you that she had been born?

She’s such a joy and I try to see her as often as I can, I’m excited to be a Grandma but can’t see it being anytime soon so Tayla is getting all my attention (and money) for the time being!


You may have heard that Leonie is moving to Clarity so the current DT is being wound up which is a shame. I enjoyed using her products, they were a bit different for me and really took me out of my comfort zone. I have quite a few cards and projects that I never put on the blog so I thought for my next couple of posts I‘d share them…

As you can see, completely different to what I usually make but I think it’s good to try new things sometimes. I have a drawer full of mdf shapes which need decorating and it’s fun so I might do a few more of them (I’ll put it on the list lol)


Thanks so much for stopping by today and for taking the time to let me have your feedback – I love to read them and always try to return the visit

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone

PS. I don’t know what’s happening to my blog, I’m just seeing a cross where my signature was and pictures on some of the previous posts. Is it just me? I’m going to leave it for now in case it’s just a glitch but it’s annoying me because I like things to be neat!


  1. Tayla looks adorable Anne, beautiful project and love details Anne, I can see you signature on all your makes..
    Hugs Pam x

  2. Hi Anne, what beautiful projects, wonderful designs and colours. Isn't Tayla just gorgeous, she looks a happy wee soul.
    Does this mean Leonie is leaving Hochanda? if so I will miss her, Kate x

    1. Thanks Kate, I'll explain in my next post x

  3. These are lovely Anne. I especially like the heart's beautiful warm colours (and I'm not even an 'orange' person!). I think I see the cross too, after your name at the base of your post? Blogger's been acting funny for me for some time too, but more in viewing from list list of posted articles - it won't let me click on their links, I have to view the blog and scroll to them which is a pain. It just keeps 'redirecting' and gets itself into a loop. Don't know the answer, but I just keep swearing and working around it when I forget! xx

    1. Thanks Annette, sorry you're having problems too (but also glad it's not just me!)

  4. Beautiful projects Anne, they are all fabulous but I especially like the flower wreath - so pretty.
