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've said it before, and I'll say it again ~ your blog brings me JOY!

I love what you've done with the notice board! I've just got a normal cork one in my craft room (that I can never reach through the mess) - I think I should upgrade.


Good idea


Isn't it amazing what a difference a bit of fabric and some buttons can make!! x


Beyond gorgeous. Seriously.


I just love your prettification!! brilliant idea!! I'll definitely keep it in mind :)...


It makes me want to go out and buy a boring notice board just so I can pretty it up!

Really cute, Lucy. You'll not only get lots of use out of it, you'll love using it, too.
In the few silly years I had a gift shop - a mad detour from journalism which almost bankrupted me (the giftshop had no passing traffic, duh!) - I found I suddenly had to economise to the nth degree, so I developed a very successful recipe for my own modpodge.
Mix wood glue (you may call it white glue, not sure) and water pretty much half and half until it's the consistency of thin cream. Use in exactly the same way you use modpodge. It dries clear and behaves perfectly.
Put the screw top lid on the jar and just give it a good shake before use. Keeps for ages.

We all need a bit of pretty in our lives, and this is fabulous! :o)


Think I may have to take a trip to Ikea very soon now... Thanks Lucy for more inspiration! Can't wait to see the studio.

Hi Lucy, I really love your notice board!!!! So much nicer than the conventional felt covered ones - and your magnets are crazy - clever- cute - so much better than pins!!!!! Can't wait to read about your new studio!!!!

The buttons on the magnets is such a fab idea. I am going to use this one. Well done you.


Ok, that is the cutest magnet board EVER. Especially the button magnets. Beautiful :)

I couldn't have left it like that either!Turned out great :) love the buttons,I did some like flowers,with my grandmother's buttons awhile back.http://www.flickr.com/photos/craftygal/7153208179/in/set-72157629882621071 Have a look if you like.To cover something temporary,use starch,soak the fabric really well,dripping(cut a little bigger,shrinks some)using a credit card or the like,smooth onto surface and let dry,when ready for a change just peel off.I've seen it done on walls.Can't wait for the studio photos!Off to have a peek at those lovely cards.


Well done on the board...it is now 'prettyfied'!!! I have an ugly plain ol' corkboard that needs pretty-fying and your idea of fabric gave me an idea!!! Thx for the inspiration Lucy.


Oh my goodness!!! Those magnets are adorable!! You are so inspirational!
