Making space to create
About Popcorn + Crocodiles
As a working mum of two young ones, life is busy and I struggle to find the time I’d love to devote to crafting and making. For years I’ve also struggled to feel comfortable describing myself as ‘creative’; despite taking lots of evening classes and making things I still feel a bit of a fraud! The more time I’ve spent reading about how to become more creative, the more it’s become evident that practice (and perhaps confidence!) is the key. So, starting Popcorn + Crocodiles is a commitment to myself, to make time and space to develop and nurture a more creative and fulfilling path in my life. I’ll share my makes and inspiration, and I hope you enjoying sharing them with me.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Emily x

Since then I've added in a mini version to pop in a bag or pocket when you're out + about, and next to follow were organiser formats which allow a constantly up-to-date portfolio of projects, dreams and plans.
Here’s some of what you’ll find inside the notebooks + organisers:
I’ve tried to combine useful and practical features with simple, inspiring and adaptable design.
You can read more about using the original notebook in this blog post.
A little about me
I’m Emily, enthusiastic crocheter, newer knitter; passionate about creating and all things yarny! I love blues and greys, frosty mornings, gin & tonic, coffee & cake. Home is the beautiful city of Edinburgh, which I share with my other half and two wee ones, so life is lots of fun, if a little too hectic at times!
Why Popcorn + Crocodiles?
Well, they’re a couple of my favourite crochet stitches, and I wanted a name that reflected my interest in crochet, while hopefully being a bit playful and sticking in the mind! The downside is that the web address takes a bit of typing ….
