Saphron Ithiel

Hi there! I’m a housewife & pet sitter on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. I’m from South Africa, I love all things chocolate and snacky, I adore cats, and I make cards as a hobby.


I’m vegetarian, and the only things keeping me from veganism are those darn delicious snacks… ice cream, chocolate, baked goods… but I am 98% vegan and 100% gluten free when living a snack-free life!


I’m on two Design Teams in the crafty world: Penny’s Paper-Crafty, and Cute As A Button. I never knew I was a crafter, but my mom has been making cards for the last decade. I decided that it was unfair for her to never receive hand-made cards, so I started just making cards for her. Then Penny’s did a DT call in April 2019 and my mom asked if I wanted to join. With utter terror, I accepted. Then in September 2019 I was asked to join Cute As A Button – such an honour! I now love crafting, and it makes me so happy and excited to watch my skill improve, especially in colouring (for which I use Copics).


I’ve been married since September 2017 to an Australian man who is utterly charming. He makes, hosts, and markets websites for a living – he helped me make this blog. He’s a soft-hearted, lovable man who makes me laugh every day.
