About Me

Hi, I'm Kathryn - welcome to my little spot of all things crafty!   

I'm a maker, with a passion for crafting and all things hand-made.  I live in Melton Mowbray, UK with my husband, daughter, and guinea pigs.

My first loves are spinning and knitting, and you'll find a strong bias towards those crafts on my blog.  I also love experimenting with resin, and jewellery making.  My most popular blog posts, however, are about how I made my guinea pigs' C and C cage, and the things I've made to enhance their lives.

I have a YouTube channel that is steadily becoming focused, almost exclusively, on spinning and fibre preparation.  Those are definitely my current passions and I can't see that changing any time soon.  I've fallen deeply down that rabbit hole!  If you'd like to follow me on my spinning journey you can find me here.

I’m hoping to share my offerings here, along with a few templates, instructions, and ideas along the way.  Many, many of my projects I'm trying for the first time, so if I can do it, so can you!

Why Craft me Happy?

Like many crafters, I'm at my happiest when I'm making things.  I've had chronic pain for all of my adult life, and making, crafting, and designing have always been the distractions that keep me happy.

I've been blogging since 2006 and I subscribe to the blogging without obligation approach to my blog.  I love crafting and I love sharing what I make here on my blog, and of course, I LOVE the feedback I get from my readers!  However, I only blog when I feel truly inspired to share what I have made.  I never want to feel that this blog is a chore and I want my posts to have integrity - so, I may blog once or twice a week, once a month, or just whenever the mood takes me.  I vow never to apologise for my absence.

If you want to know when I've blogged, follow me on Pinterest, Bloglovin', and Facebook or, I post regular updates of my latest projects on Instagram.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!
