Why is your blog called 'the Knotted Home'? 
“I knit the afternoon away. I knit reasons for Elijah to come back. I knit apologies for Emma. I knit angry knots and slipped stitches for every mistake I ever made, and I knit wet, swollen stitches that look awful. I knit the sun down. ” - Laurie Halse Anderson

I wanted to create a little space of my own that emphasized a couple of things that I love: creating things with yarn and the every day life at home. My home. My life. My yarn. My imagination.

I learned how to knit when I was really young, and even though I may have a million other projects on the go that do not include playing with yarn; knitting has always been the one thing that I can count on to make me truly relax at the end of a hard, long day. Creating something from nothing, using a rainbow of string, this makes my heart smile. 

As my journey leads on, as I grow, learn, and experience new things, I make knots in my life string with all of the important values, lessons, dreams, and loves that I create. Some knots are big and ugly but it marks an important lesson I have learned or something that I have overcome. Some knots are beautiful and they hold my dreams. I am making knots. I tied a knot when I got married and what a beautiful knot it is! I tied a knot when my beautiful angel girl was born. When I am at the end of my rope, I tie a knot and hold on. Sometimes my knots are unhealthy and I have to learn how to untie those so that my heart can be free. I am tied to my hometown. I am tied to my family. My life is full of knots. They are mine. And they are what make me different from everyone else.

This is the knotted home. A place filled with me. My thoughts and dreams, photography and words.

What kind of camera do you use? 
I use a Canon SX130 IS and my Iphone 5 camera. Nothing exciting but I love playing with different lights, props and textures. 

Why don't you have pictures of your baby or your husband on your blog? 

For personal and safety reasons. Before my girls were born, my husband and I discussed what kind of role we wanted for her to play on my blog. Since I am a lifestyle blogger, it almost seemed wrong to not include anything about Lovebug and Birdie, so we compromised. I can take as many photos of them as I like, but their faces would remain off of it. At this moment in time, it is what makes us the most comfortable as parents and we will continue doing it for future children as well as any friends who come over. 

Can I put a couple of your pictures on Pinterest or my own blog? 
Absolutely. Just make sure that you link them back to the original source. I would even love to see how you use them, so send me an email and I would love to check it out!
