About Me & Contact

Welcome to The Craft Room and Beyond – I suppose I should share a little about me; what I do and who is the face behind the blog – so here we go:


I’m Kay, a British blogger, based in Cornwall UK. I have been blogging for almost ten years before creating The Craft Room and Beyond. In the past I have worked with a variety of brands and independent businesses. I hope in time that this will continue.

For a long time I was a craft blogger, before moving on to cover travel and occasional home projects, eventually sharing more of my day to day life and interests. This led to needing to create an online space where all of this fits together more appropriately, The Craft Room and Beyond is that space.

I can be contacted at craftroomandbeyond[at]outlook.com

Crafts & Hobbies

I have been an avid crafter for many years, learning to knit, cross-stitch and sew in my childhood. I now do all of these, with the addition of card making and scrapbooking, and occasionally try my hand at other crafts too!

I’m also the host of Twitter chat #BCChat; a weekly dose of everything and anything for creative bloggers, but NOT just craft, it’s a non selling hour for making friends and getting “Beyond Craft” (Tuesdays at 8pm GMT).

Outside of crafting, I have a wide range of hobbies, from music (we both play guitar and sing), film and TV (Netflix is life) and of course days out! I also enjoy baking, reading and generally relaxing with a game or jigsaw puzzle!

I live in Cornwall UK, with my boyfriend of almost 10 years, Stu, and our two cats Darth Sidious (aka Sid) and Loki. We rent our home, which gives a fun perspective on how you can truly make a space your own, when you can’t alter everything as you may like!

Living in Cornwall gives us a great excuse to get outside and explore our surroundings, we have held National Trust membership for a while now, and love to visit local sites, as well as exploring the many museums, beaches and other places available on our doorstep.

Stu and I like to get away a couple of times a year when we can, sometimes more often. We usually have a UK break, as well as travelling further afield, for example in 2019 we travelled to Somerset, Leicester and Sussex within the UK and at the end of the year we had a short break in Venice, Italy.

Quite often we will have a day out together at least once a month, whether it’s a relaxed walk around a garden or historic site, having fun at an amusement park, or going to car shows and other events!

If there is anything more you would like to know about me, do feel free to get in touch – I’m pretty easy going!
