About Me!

Danielle Stanley
Ro’s first birthday.

Hi, I’m Danielle Stanley, mum to Rowan and wife to Daniel. I live on the edge of Northumberland in a home we have been busy renovating.
I started working four days a week in September 2013 and struggled to balance being a teacher and a mummy. I wanted to make sure that I didn’t lose ‘me’ completely somewhere in the middle so I created this blog so I could share with others the things that make me smile.

I have always loved trying out crafts and decided to teach myself to crochet in August 2013 to distract myself from my impending return to work after maternity leave!

It seems others like what I make so I started to sell my ‘creations’ in May 2015 and Under the Rowan Trees was born!

    1. Thanks I will keep my eyes open for one. I’m working on my granny stripe with a glass of wine right now!

      1. Sounds like a dangerous combination! keep the wine away from the wool.
