Ooh, look at us socialising and sharing!
Hi, I’m Natasha.
Ooh, look at me welcoming you to my creative blog, where I will introduce you to all the fun, creative and crazy things I get up to.
I am a wife and a mother to my 3 children and 2 dogs, so you can imagine how chaotic it can get in our house.
“Ooh, look at me!” is an ironic name because I actually don’t like drawing attention to myself or my family, yet I really like inspiring others to be creative because I know how fulfilling it can be. The name also comes from something silly we used to say years ago and it kind of just stuck with me.
Check out our About Us page for more information about us and what we do.
I hope this brings you creative joy
Let’s get yarning and creative!
Ooh, look at me going on a creative journey with you!
Or, you can
What’s in my craft bag?
I have a basket and a couple of different bags that store my W.I.P (work in progress). Then I have my craft bag. It is actually a cosmetics bag that I got from boots for free when purchasing something else. I always have it close by when working on a project. In it I keep the following items:
Small notepad – this is for making my tally charts to keep track of my row count, when I don’t have my tablet to use the Stitch Counter app.
Note book 1 (Owls) – this is my rough writing book where I write out patterns, make notes of things I want to remember and just generally anything I want to scribble down.
Note book 2 – I use this for listing ideas, listing yarn brand details and what I thought of them and I used to write out patterns that I definitely wanted to keep but I mainly type them up on the computer now.
Crochet hook case – this stores all my crochet hooks. I really have them packed in and they get a lot of use – by me and my daughter, and sometimes the boys when they feel like they want to try it. As you can see in the pictures my collection is varied. You can also see that my daughter made me hand grips out of loom bands because I found it difficult, at times, to hold the hooks comfortably.
Storage box – this contains all the little useful things you need when working on a project and I have slowly added to it over the past couple of years. It now holds scissors, cable needles, stitch holders, stitch markers, knitting needle point protectors, and darning needles. Not bad for something that only cost £1.29 a couple of years ago from eBay.
Pack of extra stitch markers.
Tub of dressmaker pins.
Tub of KnitPro T-Pins for blocking work.
Retractable tape measure.
Stationary – pens, pencils, rubber, sharpener.
I hope this brings you creative joy and inspires you to start your own creative journey.
