We are Ali and Amy, a couple of university students from little old New Zealand, with a shared love of all things crafty, nifty and cute.

We study science and politics at Otago University in Dunedin, a town renowned for it's frosty temperatures and frozen students. In our spare time, and also as a means of procrastinating, we love to create adorable adornments for our daily life.

So welcome to our charming blog.
 Having both grown up with wonderfully creative people around us, it is only natural for us to want to create. However, being students of insubstantial means, we often find the projects on DIY blogs a little out of our monetary reach. This is why we decided to make our own place in the wonderful world of blogs where we could share with you some of our economical and eco-friendly inventions. We hope to inspire you with useful tips and projects to help you beautify the spaces around you, for a low cost. 
Our aim is to create useful things which are pretty and can be made from cheap, sustainable materials that are easy to get your hands on. We would also love to give you some insight into our lives as creative Scarfies.

So please join us on our whimsical wanderings into the world of functional cute.
