Ooh, look at mewelcoming 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.

I hope this brings you creative joy

Ooh, look at me sharing my knitting journey with you……
Knitting is a craft I learnt at the end of 2015. I now can’t decide which I like more, knitting or crochet! I was slightly afraid of trying knitting because it seemed quite complicated. I started really simple - with a children’s book, called “Stitch by Stitch” by Jane Bull. I got a bit frustrated with it because I struggled to hold the yarn and I couldn't get my tension right. It was a right mess, so I turned to my trusty old friend - the Internet. There, I found the wonderful Expression Fibre Arts YouTube channel - https://www.youtube.com/user/ExpressionFiberArts. Chandi teaches in such a fun and crazy way, which makes it much easier to learn. I learnt very quickly from her beginner tutorials. She also has such a collection of beautiful projects to try for all levels of skill and she even sells yarn that she dyes herself! I hope that one day I can afford to buy some - it’s AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS! My knitting journey definitely got a positive boost, thanks to Chandi.
I hope this brings you creative joy and inspires you to start your own yarn-tastic journey.
