2016 goes and 2017 arrives

Why is this still on my mind? I just, sort of, kind of pulled myself out of the new year funk that leaves me wanting to curl up with pets, a scotch and a movie that will make me cry.

We are into March, and I am still thinking of transition.

First off – lets have a short review… Last year I wanted to do a few things

be on a podcast – goal met on Jan 8th! (Fun!)
go to Craftcation business conference – goal met April 9th (SO GREAT!)
do a wedding event – goal met on Oct 1st! (What a whirlwind!)
kick general ass –……


Buy Local/Buy from a Maker

So a while back this lovely post started bouncing around facebook. Saw a handful of friends post this. I would love to see more. I would love to see all our networks grow!

Wanna find out who you know that is a maker, that you may not know about? Post this on your page and see what cool stuff pops up for ideas on holiday shopping that will have an IMMEDIATE impact on our local economy and a maker/artist/farmers life while taking positive steps to minimize the transport/big oil consumption and fast fashion/trend consumption and waste that comes with buying at……


Fiber Harvesting and sustainable practices.

I am building a revolution of Passive Anarchy. Hashtag #kNiTpUnK and/or #PassiveAnarchy so I can find you on the interwebz. Come join me…    Click here: —-> Hell yeah! I’m In!

We are killing ourselves.     I am sure you know this.

We need to be better and better about leaving no mark on the face of this earth and maybe even help it heal from the marks of those who came before us.

There is a growing awareness of health and sustainability when you talk about farming and food. About decreasing litter and waste. About ditching petroleum products. About doing what is……


Craftcation 2016

This early April I got the chance to do something amazing.

a conference.

ok – for many of you that is FAR from amazing. Still, this is my 1st conference that I attended to improve my skills, knowledge, network and focus of kNiTpUnK…

wow. it was a doozy.

Not only did I get a motivational kick in the arse, I was able to meet with so many intelligent, charismatic, savvy and talented people (mostly women, but not all!) in a really condensed period of time.

I have plans to improve my website, my etsy, my social media strategy, my unboxing experience…. AND NEW PRODUCT IDEAS!

so…….


Fears, Assumptions…

Fears drive many of our assumptions about ….. things.

Be it fears of exotic other people, or lifestyles you don’t comprehend, those foods that seem odd or weird, a regions risks and weather, the social standing of whole groups, even religions and their followers, or small challenges to your daily habits.

If you have fear of something, and you don’t address it, it becomes a monster. This isn’t a “it might” kind of observation. IT WILL. The longer you let that fear simmer, the more intimidating it gets. The hydra grows more heads. The werewolf gains sharper teeth and longer claws. The……


Boundaries

I need em.

‘Nuff said.

Been overloaded, this is why there have been no love-notes form me since January. This is unacceptable.
The good news is I am working at identifying and cleaning up my boundaries so I can lend more focus to my health and this biz I love. See you soon!! I promise!! I intend to get a new post up by the 15th.

Also – A new newsletter is in the works, so If you wanna keep a finger on the pulse of this fiber network I am building, before anyone else gets it, in your mailbox with updates on deals/selling events/collaborations, subscribe……
