About Me & Loretta’s Creations

Why is it so difficult to talk about ourselves? I am married and have two children and 4 grandchildren. Each of them are a blessing . I have worked in the wine industry most of my working career. My new job is part of the food chain involving chocolate-Love it. ❤️

One of my personality flaws is to internally take in a lot of negativity until I am unable too. Then I become Mt St Helen’s exploding. Many times my health and vision were affected by the high level of stress and demands put on me. My previous employer hired a stress management expert and It was suggested as a tool to relax I needed to start a hobby.

Well, I am not very crafty and hate all my pictures so scrapbooking, jewelry or paper crafts were not my choice for relaxing. One day I was walking around in Michaels researching my options and saw the most interesting item. I have always wanted to learn to knit, but never could find the right video or teacher. What I saw was a loom knitting kit. I thought to myself 🤔- “I can totally do that”. I asked Santa for one awhile back and within weeks I was obsessed and had so much yarn and multiple looms. Making things like hats and blankets became my tool to close off my mind and focus on creating. This is how Knitting for calmness came about. To support my habit I created a Facebook store page so I can at the least keep buying more yarn. Selling my hats or blankets for the cost of yarn helps my pocketbook and mindfulness. please join my page and my journey in finding peacefulness. I have officially learned how to crochet and hand embroider this past year. I am finding my knitting has been out aside. But I still love it. But I may love hand embroidery a bit more 🤣.
