I view creativity as a mediation, an act of great patience and joy. Creativity allows us to relax, to quiet the chatter of the mind and refocus our energy on something positive, enjoyable, challenging and beautiful.

Creativity is my life.

It is expressed in many forms, and I’m not too picky which form it takes: cooking, gardening, knitting, writing, painting my nails.  As long as I make something every single day I’m happy!
For me, it’s knitting. I can get lost in the meditative, repetitive quality while my subconscious mind turns over the bigger challenges in my life and the world.
Knitting my not be your thing, but you have one, I know you do!  I encourage you to experiment with different projects and find that creative outlet that lights you up!

I am a former pastry chef turned stay at home mama turned creative entrepreneur.  In 2011 I took the leap into small business ownership and opened Stash, a local yarn shop  in Oregon.  Now I’m embarking on a new adventure: coaching creatives who want to take their dreams to the next level.


becerra_photography-48My wife and I live in Western Oregon with our two small children.  We are learning the ropes of this full new life together, and enjoy the ups and downs of the everyday.  When I’m not plotting world domination with yarn, I’m can be found in my knitting chair, reading, baking, watching movies, playing in the garden, wrangling cats, or daydreaming about my next adventure.


As an influencer in the creative community,  I love empowering others on their creative explorations.

I’d love to help you on your journey. Let’s connect!

  1. I can’t believe you knit a sock while I was having my toenail excised! I suppose the pain distracted me from noticing. 🙂

  2. Hi there Peaceful Knitter,

    Congratulations, you have inspired me to learn something new. I love this blog!

  3. Hello PK,

    Happened upon your site and would love to join the crowd of knitters. Approaching retirement in June and looking forward to many days and nights of knitting. Am quite concerned about the Ossipee mountain area knitters I have not yet met and hope there is a group of enthusiasts.

    Please add me to your list!
