About Me

I'm Marie and welcome to my little creative space. I started this blog as a way of sharing recipes, ideas and projects. Here you will find some recipes (mainly baking!), knitting and other yarn projects, other crafts like jewellery making and anything else that I want to share!

When I'm not crafting, I'm being a mama, wife and nurse. I live in Wellington and have lived here for the past 12 years or so. I married my husband in 2008 and we have one little boy. 

Creativity runs in my family. My Dad is a very talented Architect in New Plymouth, and my mum was an extremely crafty person. Mum was a New Entrants Teacher and constantly thought up different creative ideas for her classroom. She was also a brilliant cook, baker, teacher and mastered a myriad of yarn crafts. She could knit, crochet, embroider, cross-stitch, quilt and was even know to dabble in a bit of tapestry in her time! Sadly we lost Mum to Breast Cancer in 2005. So in a sense I am carrying on some of her legacy in this blog with a lot of the recipes and ideas coming from things that we did in my childhood and a few bits and pieces from what mum did at school.

Now that I have my own child, I want to pass on some of that inspiration and imagination that comes with making things with your own hands. And the best way to do this is to model by example! 

I hope I can give you some ideas and inspired you to create things for yourself. I am by no means a perfectionist but I like to give everything a go and challenge myself to learning something new. I'm a self-taught knitter and crocheter, and learn a lot through other blogs and Google and YouTube!
