What if…

Good morning! ☕️

I have had a long few months of no knitting mojo. What? You say.

I know. Sigh…

But, guess what i did last night?

Knit.

And, it felt good. Though, like every time I knit, my mind goes. It travels to places that help me find peace. This was no different.

I’ve been working on a business plan to relaunch my photography business. It was once (decade or more ago) filled with brides, families, and a few seniors.

I want a different focus (pun intended) this time. A re-branding of sorts is happening.

Creatives in their spaces or at coffee shops creating. This comes from someone (me) who loves to create in coffee shops. I draw, knit and even cross stitch in these places.

It’s a place of inspiration for me, and I’m sure for other creatives as well. A home studio, a downtown studio. Your favorite coffee shop. Any place that you, as a creative, likes to create.

I’m looking for any one who would like portraits, marketing photos, process photos to put on your studio wall, to submit to magazines, or for your own brand. Photos to show to potential clients. Portraits of you doing what you love.

I’m building my portfolio and would like to fill it with creative individuals in their spaces. Whatever that means for you.

What if you’re local to me (Colorado Springs and surrounding areas) and this describes you, then I’d love to talk with you. Please reach out to me so we can discuss all the fine details.

So, until next time,

Stay creative!

It can be anything from a dishcloth pattern to a blanket pattern to a sockpattern to a hat pattern to a scarf pattern. Who knows what I feel like giving that day!

I know Christmas is coming fast, but these projects will be fast to knit and fun. The perfect gift for anyone on your list.

I have so many fun things planned this next year. I’m jumping in with both feet. Be watching for things like guest bloggers, interviews will begin again *happy dance*, podcasters who will be talking about the patterns I gift them and coupon codes for their viewers, challenges for you and me, and LOTS more.

Inspiring a Creative Life.

It will be a jam packed year.

So, as I always say,

Knit Your Holiday Gifts

Welcome Knitters & Crocheters,

Did you know that Christmas is ONLY 177 days away? I know, right?

christmas

Have you thought about what your gift list looks like? Have you thought maybe a Knit along with me might be fun? I’m sure you haven’t. But, it promises to be so much fun!

If so, please join me over on my Facebook Page where you will receive Free, Paid for, and recommended dishcloth patterns, that will help you get a jump start on your Holiday knitting. I have a fun prize package (it may even include on of my books *smiling*) for the one that knits the most dishcloths in the month. Fun, huh?

Your to-list, as well as mine, is to make a list of those people that enjoy receiving a creative gift. As we all know, not all recipients appreciate a hand-made gift. And, that’s ok, right? Be thoughtful in your list. It may even be fun to add some natural hand cream to your cotton dishcloth as a gift. That’s always a great addition.

Have a fun-filled weekend knitting your first dishcloth pattern of the month. It can be found here. Yes, it’s mine. 🙂 And I made it available for free for liking my page.

Knit On!
