About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

I absolutely adore your prettification (I wonder if this word exists but whatever). The notice board and button magnets are... yes, they are PRETTY!!! Thank you for all your inspiring ideas, I love reading your blog.

Rachael Iddon

That is so cute. My son has one of those grey hard strangely named things in his bedroom. Maybe I should take a leaf out of your book. Clearly I am online too much today (sitting on the sofa with a sick boy) because I think I was the first like on your Facebook status and now there are maybe only one or two comments. Loving seeing bits of your studio. Looking forward to seeing the whole thing soon.


You're the best prettifier in the world!
Love the idea and the pretty colours.


How exciting! I love the way your board turned out and I agree, the stitching in the buttons was the perfect touch. Can't wait to see this studio of yours!

Sarah - CraftySorcha

Great prettification! The colours really suit your style!

Howard's House

That's utterly gorgeous Lucy! I've been meaning to do something similar with a cork board but a magnetic board is a much better idea as no pins are involved.

I can't wait to see the studio. It's so exciting for me as a reader….I can't imagine how you're feeling about it.



I can't wait to see the studio photo's I love you're button magnets they look like sweeties all in a row. What a great idea. Great fabric choose too. I think I'm just about there with the Spring flowers for my wreath but I've still loads of knitting to do to finish to background cover for the wreath. xxx


Stunning! I happen to have some Modgepodge just sitting in my craft room as I speak. And fabric......


So pretty ... although I always have a little chuckle to myself when I see your love of buttons ... my daughter has a button phobia (yes, really, I know!!) and beautiful as it is, this noticeboard would be a nightmare for her. I love it though :-)


Lucified....lovely! :) xxx Looking forward to hearing about your studio too!


Ooo, that's a very beautiful board! And I'm so excited to see your new studio :)


Nice work. Love it!

Linda Gilbert

Brilliant Lucy. Love it!


What fun. And at last a use for all the odd buttons in the button box.


I really must give this modpodge stuff a go - it seems like a miracle product. Another lovely make and easy to coordinate with what ever room you choose. Studio looking good so far from that sneaky little peek - looking forward to the rest of the story x Jane


Ooh Lucy! Love the magnet buttons - they'd be great on a fridge too! Really looking forward to the Big Reveal of your studio. Very excited indeed :)

That is such a nice idea!!! I have an old ornate picture frame. I will highlight in white and obtain a matching metal plate from the hardware store with fabrics and put in the frame. I can not wait to start so intent. Greetings from germany!


i love looking around creative peoples homes- so much style and colour in your and love the link ;0)x

Jo Roberts

A perfect satisfying little project it appears. If you take stuff to the studio you will have more 'gaps' at home to make more of your beautiful creations! Can't wait to see it all unfold. Jo x



I can't wait to see and hear more about the studio! It sounds like exciting things are in store. Good for you!

Sandra (Cherry Heart)

And I thought I had invented the word Prettification! Guess I'm not so original after all ;) Anyway, I love your pin board makeover and the buttons are a fab touch. Can't wait to see the exciting craft room/studio post!

Give me insubstantial if it prettified my day! I have just started looking for a magnetic strip to store my nail clippers behind the mirror.


Beautiful Lucy can't wait to see the photos of your studio! Love the colours on your board and what a clever idea with the buttons! Nikki

Delphine giner

I really enjoy all the things you make!!!!!!! So wonderful!!! But Can you tell me where you find such colorful and beautiful buttons??? Delphine.


We have a white version of your useful board. It is covered edge to edge with small person artwork....not much point in prettifying ours just yet. :). Yours is lovely and I really like the thread detail on your buttons. Sweet. Have an excellent week.
