Hi, I’m Esther and I live in Salford, UK.
When I’m not hard at work in my day job you can usually find me crocheting, crafting, cooking, gardening or playing board games with my family and friends. I squeeze in blogging in between all these things, so do bear with me if it takes me a while to respond to a comment!
Make My Day Creative began in 2012 as a way for me to record lots of the creative things I do, as well as a motivational tool to actually finish projects. I was surprised to find how much I actually like writing about the things I have been doing! Plus it is really great to get feedback from those of you trying my ideas and using my patterns and recipes. If you have any comments I would really value them, so don’t be shy!
Since starting this blog I have been surprised how popular it has become. I get a real buzz when I see people’s projects made based on my patterns on Ravelry. It’s one of the reasons I try my hardest to keep my crochet patterns and other tutorials available for free.
In order to pay for the running of this site you may notice some adverts in my sidebars etc. Ideally I would operate without them but I currently feel this is the best way to cover my costs. If you’d prefer not to see ads and pay for patterns instead then let me know! And if you like this site, you can help pay me back for my effort in putting it together by sharing it with your friends and online groups.
I do not have any paid affiliates. All materials used are my own choice and my opinions will always be honest ones!
