An Interview with Lil’ Luna’s Kristyn M.
My name is Kristyn, I’m married to my best friend, and I’m the mom of 3 small children four and under. When I’m not busy spending time with family or running around with the little ones, I love to craft and create. I started my blog, Lil’ Luna, in the summer of 2010 as a creative outlet and have loved enjoying sharing my ideas as well as other ideas with those out in Blog Land. I’ve also loved meeting other bloggers and am lucky to live around so many fun ladies that I get to work and create with.
Your site has an impressive number of recipes and tutorials. What are some of your favorite recipes? How about tutorials?
Tutorials and Recipes are the things I love most. Some of my favorite tutorials are the easiest ones that I was able to make for under a buck. The other ones I adore are the ones I’ve done with my hubby like our Lemonade Stand. For recipes, I like all the desserts! My family definitely has a sweet tooth, and I really enjoy throwing ingredients together to make unique and delicious desserts.
Where do you get the inspiration for all your creations? What keeps your crafty momentum going?
I find so much inspiration everywhere! From the store to Pinterest to others in blog land, I’m always looking for fun and inspiring things that I can use in my next creations.
What type of activities does your family like to do to have fun/bond?
There are so many fun things we like to do as a family to have fun. One of those things is go on walk. We go on a walk as the entire family at least once a week and it’s usually to the park, but the kids love it. We also love jumping on the trampoline and spending time at both grandma’s and grandpa’s (which live close by).
When you get the chance, what are some of the ways you like to relax?
Whenever I get two seconds to relax, I love to watch movies with the hubby. We don’t watch much TV, but we love sitting, popping some popcorn and sticking in a movie when the kiddos are asleep.
What are your top 5 tips for all moms?
1.) Family first. Sometimes we get caught up in the world but it’s always good to remember that family comes first, and I truly believe that if you do put family first you’ll find even more success with everything you do.
2.) Learn how to balance. As women, I feel like we are always trying to be good at everything, but it’s all about balance. It’s important to be a good wife and mom, but is it really important to be THE best baker in the world? It’s good to work on your talents and to find success, but not if it means not focusing on the things that are the most important.
3.) Be yourself. In the blogging world people are always comparing themselves to each other, but if you focus on you and try to be yourself and be creative and original, you’ll be fine!
4.) Don’t stress the small things. So many times I blow things up out of proportion which is so unnecessary. I really hope I can take my own advice here, because life is too short to stress out about everything.
5.) Choose Joy. Be happy and find joy in everything you do. This kind of goes with #4, but life is too short. Enjoy it and you’re life will be SO much better!
