Hi my name is Kristin.
I am an artist inspired by the light and colors in our magical world. I create fashions, designs, and patterns for crochet, knit and fabric. I sell both my patterns and finished products.
I believe we are here to love, create, and find joy in every moment of our lives, even the tough times.
Creating my designs – crochet, knit, and fashion – gives me tremendous joy.
I also try to find “light” in my life and in my heart. I find that to be very healing. Life bumps us around a bit. Looking for the “light” helps us restore back to peace and joy.
That’s how I came to call my little crochet business “Light and Joy Designs.”
I hope that you will also find light and joy in my designs.
Fun Facts About Me:
I literally love wrapping myself in crochet each day. To me it is cozy and cozy=love. Does that make me crazy? Lol. I don’t mind because it make me happy!
I consider myself a “Crochet Engineer.” That’s what it feels like. I love all the math, the geometry and patterns. So much fun! And (usually) no one gets hurt by my designs. lol.
I can talk about spirituality for days – if anyone is interested. My favorite teachers are Ram Dass, Eckhart Tolle, Thich Nhat Hanh, and many more. If you’re interested, drop me a line at my contact page and I can send you more recommendations.
I like hiking, walking, reading, movies, swimming, hanging out with my son and my family, and Good Food!
I think I’m a bit of a Foodie. I’m not professional level, but I like experimenting with new recipes and have realized that home cooked is pretty much always better, with a few exceptions.
I love Color!! I love Music!! They are as good as drugs to me. I guess you could say I am a sensualist.
I’m driven and therefore impatient – and that’s where spirituality comes in – I need that larger perspective to balance me out, to slow me down, to remind me to enjoy the journey.
