Welcome to the Cottage Notebook

Looking for Inspiration?

Hello, I’m Nadia.

I am a writer, podcaster & photographer and I’m having a deep love affair with coffee and pastry. Most days writing happens from my yarn filled desk at the back of the cottage. I’m passionate about craft and creativity, so much so, that an MSc in Chemistry led me to 8 years in the yarn industry.

The Cottage Notebook is an Irish craft & lifestyle blog and podcast based on Ireland’s east coast. It started life in September 2016 as a journal documenting my adventures in craft (knitting, crochet, weaving, spinning) and gardening before developing into my exploration of creativity. It was my port in a storm and it can be yours too.
