Wonderful Team Member Readership Award

Wonderful Team Membership Award

Wonderful Team Membership Award

I was given this award on 14 June 2013 by Pretty Little Things In a Box. The first instinct was to give it right back to her. Her blog has inspired me to step out of the box (no pun intended) with things such as swapping and Post Crossing. Her advice and support is irreplaceable. I am so humbled that she even thought of me. If you are not currently reading this blog, do yourself a favor and go do it – it will open your eyes to things you have never thought (or heard of) before.

This award was given to me on 17 June 2013 by knitxpressions. Again, the first thought was to give it right back. She has helped me on several projects – the stumbling blocks I thought would be impossible to overcome were simplified by this blogger. Her posts are informative and very entertaining, if you are not following this blog you should be. I learn something new everyday it seems from reading the blog, and for that I am just so thankful.

Here is a little bit from her About Page, go visit – I can wait.

Knitxpressions was created with the intention of sharing the blog owner’s knitting journey and experiences. In time to come, the owner hopes to make her creations available to others who share the same love for knitted pieces.

This award was given to me by teabeaknits on 30 July 2013. Such a wonderfully open blogger, it is such a kindness to even be thought of. I hope I have helped her as much as she has helped me! Here is a bit from her About Page, after reading it go visit her!

Hello! If you’re reading this you obviously want to know a bit more about me!

My name is Trudi and I was taught to knit, like so many of us, by my grandma. I don’t remember knitting very much when I was in my teens or at uni, but obviously the skill didn’t leave me because I made loads of jumpers for my boys when they were little. I loved making things with intricate designs – but of course when they are small, it doesn’t take too long.

I recieved this award on 30 July 2013 by knitrun4sanity. It was such a wonderful thing to even be thought of by this blogger. We have been going back and forth with conversations, advice and support for months – she feels like long distance family. Her blog is amazing – go check it out!

If I have convinced you, her is her About Page – if this doesn’t persuade you to go visit her – NOW – then I don’t know what will.


Welcome to my blog where I share my adventures in the activities that I do in an attempt to stay sane whilst bringing up my young family of three boys: running, knitting, crocheting, blogging and, more recently, making jewellery.

My Blog

I am a teacher at heart with my main aim in life to help people. Through this blog I share:

  • all the things that I have learnt about blogging in the hope that you can successfully join in with this amazing experience. You can find all the tutorials that I have done under the menu Blogging Tips at the top of the page.
  • my journey in learning how to use wire and beads to make unique knitted and crocheted jewellery to sell in an e shop.
  • my adventures as a crochet designer and test knitter / crocheter and all the things that go along with that
  • the ups and downs in my training along with any top tips and advice that I come across.
  • My newest adventure is making ‘traditional’ jewellery and writing a blog over at Spoilt Rotten Beads.

In other words if you are a crafter, who does a bit of exercise on the side and would like to or already have a blog then you may just enjoy this.

My Goals

My goal is to provide honest posts that include the good and the bad. Whenever I struggle I will point you in the way of the sources of my learning and improvement thus hopefully, helping you to learn new skills too (unless you are the teacher of course) ;)

I typically post three times a week.

My Top Posts

If you are new to my blog you might like to have a look at some of my most popular posts:

Who am I?

I am a busy Mum of three boisterous boys. I suffered from post natal depression after my third son. As a way of helping to improve my mood and relieve some of the stress someone suggested that I take up knitting and crochet again. This was something that I hadn’t done since being a teenager. It helped greatly.

Then one of my friends found a book about knitting and crocheting with wire. Things have continued to evolve from then on. I can no longer imagine life without my craft, blog and running (the one constant throughout everything).

Throughout this process I have changed a lot. I see this blog as a place to share my journey, connect with other like-minded people and also, maybe, to help other people reap the benefits that I have.

My Contact Information

You can find me on Twitter,Facebook and Pinterest. The location of the other Blog that I am currently writing about my adventures in jewellery Making is here.

Do join me as I share my passions along with the highs and lows of my journey. Along the way I hope that we will be able to exchange tips and advice to help us grow and develop. I look forward to getting to know you.
