kris light and joy designs

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.

You can find them in my Etsy shop:

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.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing what you’ve made with my patterns. (Please share a photo on the Ravelry pattern page or on the Light and Joy Designs Facebook page.)

You can also find me on Ravelry(profile) (Ravelry shop) and Craftsy and LoveCrochet.

You can connect with me on Facebook and Twitter as well.

And then there’s Pinterest and Instagram.

I also have a blog about life where I share ways that I’ve found to make it better:
