The Bug has Bitten!!



I've decided I'm allergic to chocolate. I MUST be. It makes things swell and enlarge!!

You can breakout from chocolate and it's not a good idea when you already have a mild milk allergy like I do. I've decided my Prescription. Spring Cleaning. I'm Dr. Mom and I'm writing it myself. I pray the Lord will give me gentle reminders that I'm allergic and to avoid at all costs because it is deadly!

Cleaning over Chocolate?
It's the furthest from your mind. But think about it. Chocolate is a comfort food. It can be very satisfying and comforting or relaxing, although fleeting. While Cleaning isn't relaxing, the satisfaction of clearing a pile of junk mail, cards & old paid bills into a few filed items, after some recycling & fun shredding, the satisfaction is quite high and it's like your mind has relaxed. A reprieve for the brain. A small victory on a challenging day. A dead place in your space has opened for imagination and creativity where there was none. Fertile ground if you will. Just like when we choose forgiveness instead of begrudging someone the weight has lifted. Besides, it really hurts ourselves and not our Enemy. I wanna keep up with the clutter not the clutter keeping me up!

Our body's go on Mini Retreats to the spa or nail salon. We go on vacation to "get away from it all". But it returns as soon as we do!

For some it's shopping therapy. It's for the mind or even our "soul" or emotions we think; but I say that's expensive and dangerous! It goes away quickly leaving us still needing something more. Just like that last chocolate morsel with your next sip of coffee or taste of toothpaste.

No clutter, no fat. I'm game! The Spring Cleaning Bug has bit me and I'M GAME!!

My Challenge: Build my own website

Step 1: Purchase the site GoodKnitKisses.com
DONE!
Step 2: Get someone to host it. DONE!
Step 3: Get to the REAL work.

So I'm fairly new to this but I'm open for the challenge. Pushing past some terrible falls in the past I'm determined that I'm smart enough to do this. I just have to not give up as I have in the past. My goal is the have a site that will function as database central for my tutorials on YouTube, a special spot for my knit & jewelry items, a resting spot for this blog and a few pages for patterns, reference materials and photos.

I can do this. I know it may be slower than I hope but if I'm patient the reward will be great! Pray for me and wish me the best please! :-)

About Me

My photo

My name is Kristen. I’m an Interior Designer & knitwear designer as well as a YouTube Tutorial filmmaker & Video Host for crafts, knitting and more. My Loom Knitting tutorials are great for Knitters (or any crafter) who wanna try their hand and want to know how to convert their stitches over to the loom. Many do it to ease their hands/carpel tunnel or work faster. It’s definitely a growing trend for traditional knitters to take up or people who love crafting with yarn! My site is GoodKnitKisses or YOUTUBE. I also write and sell my own loom patterns on my ETSY shop and on Vivaloom.com  I look forward to meeting new people and sharing the love of fiber arts :-) -Kristen
