About Me


Welcome to Crafty Cruella. My name is Kelly, let me tell you a bit about myself.

I’m a happily married mum of four, a stay at home mum to three boys and a girl.

Until recently I home-schooled our oldest two boys, for two and a half years. It was fun, rewarding and gave us freedom in learning, but it was also exhausting and challenging.

Well that is, until they made the massive decision to return to school. Which is how I have come to start my blog, me time!

We live in a beautiful house on an airfield in Somerset, England. It’s an exciting place to live, with the runway just the other side of our garden fence, there’s always something to see. We get light aircraft, helicopters, microlights and gyrocopters flying on good weather days. It’s also home to the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance, Tiger Moths and the Yakovlevs, which are a Russian aircraft formation and aerobatic display team, wow! that’s a mouth full! So we are very lucky, to get our own private air shows when they are practicing.

I love trying new crafts, especially making items for our home. Since learning to crochet back in 2010, I haven’t looked back and a day has barely passed where a hook isn’t in my hand. I’ve always been told ” you should sell your crochet” but I’m not what I would call a repeat crocheter, I can’t wait to move on to a different project, try a new stitch or different technique.

I am passionate about crochet, in a way that that I can only describe as, it just makes me feel warm, fuzzy, happy and relaxed, it’s what I was always meant to do!

And its my mission to make everyone get as excited about a hook & some woolly stuff as I am.
