Red Admiral, butterfly

The butterfly means a lot to me as it shows a coming out or an emerging.  For so long I was one of those individuals that felt that my career was the most important thing and that required being part of a big corporation.  A few years ago I came to realize that being part of a big corporation wasn't what was important to me, there was more to me than that.  I enjoy working on a different schedule, and that is when I started emerging as myself. The picture of a butterfly (a Red Admiral) is one I took on one of my explorations.

My name is Darlene Llewellyn-Konecny and the process of becoming myself has taken a lot of different curves on the road, but now I am seeing who I want to be and what is important to me. DLK Life came about as I looked at my life and decided it was time that I showed what I do all in one place.

My writing is a huge part of what keeps me going.  Sure it can be for work as that is part of my job, but it can also be for the love of writing which is part of my personal time.  Writing to me is something that I love doing, and I hope that it will be something that I can continue to enjoy for a long time.

Designing cross-stitch patterns is something that I have been doing.  Once again, the cross-stitch patterns will be found under the DLK Life umbrella. Another venture that has been started is making items for needle crafts, and they can be found at my ETSY shop.

What DLK Life is:

DLK Life is a means to show people who I am and what I do.  DLK Life is me and just me.  Some of my craft designs will be done in collaboration with an artist but all the writing will be me.  The website is also going to be maintained by me so that I can have total control of what is actually showing up here.

Who I really am:

I am a technical writer, instructor, bookkeeper, co-owner of a business and crafter. I have kept my craft side (making crafts for just the enjoyment) of my life separate and it can be found under the heading of Craftkitten below.

My views:

I have my opinions on life and have decided that I wanted to share them, so have done so through my DLK life blog. My opinions do not reflect the opinions of the company, it may be a little hard sometimes as there are only two of us in the company.
