The Cottage Notebook is a personal lifestyle and craft blog with a niche following which you can meet over on Instagram. We are fearless creative women (and 9% men) who like a slower paced, creative life and enjoy nature and gardening. Many of us are parents and are balancing work, children and finding time for ourselves. Any of the yarn, stationary, places to visit or recommendations you find on this blog are of my own choosing and are things that I love myself.


In 2017 I started working on a few collaborations and sponsored content which you can find below. My work has been featured in Simply Crochet,, OlannAnd and This is Knit. I also have collaborated with Woollinn, Dublin’s Festival of Yarn as both a photographer and panel Q&A host. If you are interested in working with me please head over to my business As Yet Unwritten were I work as a Virtual Assistant with freelance writing, photography and social media services. You can see some of my previous work below:
