Crocheting: The Lost Skill

Now, let me tell you the complete, honest truth: I have no idea how to crochet, none. But I am determined to learn how once I actually get the materials and a good book.

It really makes me wonder what happened to these type of skills. Are we really that sucked into society that we have lost all the important trades and skills our ancestors once honed? Yet now we live in a world where children are obsessed with technology, mostly their "precious" cell phones. Now don't get me wrong; cell phones are wonderful, but kids these days take it to the extreme. When you begin sending over 8k texts in one month, something is completely wrong with you, and you're likely to develop Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. I, for one, do not want to grow up like this.

I really wish my grandmother would've taught my mom all these skills such as crocheting, sewing, knitting, and so on because I'd love to actually do something good with my life. And you can actually make money off this stuff and save money rather than buying for convenience. In my opinion, it's much more valuable if you make it yourself.

These are skills our generation is letting go, and instead, we are picking up far worse skills like texting and surfing the internet for hours on end.

I know I'm not the only one that feels this way. I'm glad I picked up writing because it keeps me away from the fantasy world (haha ironical there) that society lives in. I want to live in a world that benefits myself, rather than everyone else.

I'm digressing here. What I really wanted to explain was how I'm going to learn how to crochet; I'm determined to learn no matter how hard it's going to be to learn by myself. I found a few books with cute patterns that I hope to be successful at, and once I master the skill, I plan to open up an Etsy shop (Etsy is like Ebay, except everything is homemade).

And I plan to share my experience of learning how to crochet with all you guys.

Maybe I'm a little too obsessed with this, lol
I welcome you to my journey!

  1. Go for it, there are some great utube videos that will walk you though the stitches. I learned from my mom and will teach my daughter when she is older. I have also taught friends. Have fun!

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
