Hello and welcome
My name is Ellen, I live in the beautiful South West of England with my husband and our four children. I love to cook, bake, craft, read and exploring the countryside or sailing on our boat.
Some years ago, my family gave me the nickname ‘crochet queen’ because wherever I would go, I always had a project stashed away in my bag. So, it felt fitting to use this name and combine it with my love of sustainable and eco-friendly living…the Eco Crochet Queen was officially born.
I love to be creative, whether it is creating a new craft project or cooking up a storm from scratch in the kitchen, I am at my happiest when I can let my creative side flow. For quite a few years now, I have experimented with creating my own crocheted patterns, under the name Ellie-Jay Creations, and I’m looking forward to sharing these with others too.
My own homemade and eco-friendly journey, started in my teenage years and it was a way of life that I have carried with me into adulthood. When I became a mother in my early 20’s, it was even more important to look after the world we live in, to respect it and reduce our waste and become more environmentally-friendly and resourceful. Therefore, my passion for homemade makes such as sewing my own soft furnishings to exploring cooking and food culture has grown and I love to share this with others.
In 2019, I decided to turn my passions for homemade and eco-friendly into my own business and help others to do the same. I hope you will enjoy seeing what I do and hope that it will help and encourage you to start your own eco-friendly and toxin-free lifestyle.
Love Ellen x
