Knotty Magpie is a blog written by Maggy Strong, which features crafts, crochet, original patterns, and whatever else I happen to feel like writing about. Hang around to get special offers at my Etsy and Ravelry pages, or to score free patterns and other creative inspiration!

So who am I?

I’m an aspiring drama teacher and lover of fiction. My creative energy comes in short, fiery bursts, and the crafts I do are extensive! Look around long enough and you’re bound to find something that catches your eye.

I’m a California native who packed up and moved across the country to be with my sweetheart, Zion, in rural Pennsylvania. We’ve got our dogs, Romeo and Lacey, who are a couple of pitbull mixes who may or may not be actually part cat. We love video games and fantasy, as well as the simple things like good food and a cozy home. And, he certainly tolerates my spastic need to suddenly undergo various craft projects with almost manic energy. It’s been an eventful year, and we’re finally settling into the good life!

So what’s this all about?

Common themes will be fantasy, art, role playing, fiction, upcycling, antiques, handmade crafts, crochet and fiber arts, video games, glassware (carnival and depression), thrifted goodies, and much more.

My hope is that if you are a lover of art and creativity, or just enjoy a positive outlook on life and sharing in fun experiences, you will find some joy in this little corner of the internet.

Affiliate Link Full Disclosure

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.

What this means is that occasionally you’ll see links to Amazon. No company pays for these links to appear. Rather, I choose products I’ve used personally and recommend for a given project, and I add a link to that product on Amazon in case someone wants to try the project themselves. When a sale is made from that link, Amazon pays me a small fee.

This is not an advertisement. I will never promote a product I have not used myself or that is irrelevant to the craft at hand. It’s just link ordering off of Amazon the normal way, but I get recognized as an affiliate. Feel free to email me with any questions about this.
