Hello there, and welcome to my brand new little creative space on the internet, Saint Cardigan. Come on in, make yourself a cup of tea, and get cosy while we geek out about all things creative, handmade, quirky and lovely.
This blog came about as the result of an intense three year creative itch (perhaps you know the feeling?). I used to blog over at (the now inactive) www.feltasaurus.blogspot.com, which I originally created to share my little needle felted creatures. Then, alas, life intervened – full-time work took over, and I had to spend my time doing grown-up things, like paying car registration and researching health insurance (gross), and my creative pursuits stood idle. But eventually, as is wont to happen, the creative things started creeping their way back in. Multiple crochet projects were started, blog post ideas would appear in my dreams, and a frightening amount of my hard earned real-grown-up-job dollars were being spent on yarn (can you ever have too much yarn?). For that sake of my sanity, I had to start this blog, and I wanted a platform on which to talk about a wider range of creative things than my original blog (no offence needle felting, I still love you!).
Here, I hope to engage in creative conversations with people and the world around me. There will be talk of making things, watching things, reading and listening to things, and things to ponder too. I’d love for you to say hi and stay a while, share your creative thoughts and hope to see you back here again soon. Thanks for visiting…
