If you are new here,
Well, hello!

Between yesterday's giveaway (check it out ya'll!!!) and the free digital stamp earlier this week, I've noticed a bunch of new readers following along.  And I just wanted to welcome you to my tiny space of blog world:).

My name is Krista. 
I have two beautiful kiddos, Philly and Niamh (pronounced EVE with an 'N' in front:).
I've been married for 11 years to this guy I went on a blind date with like forever ago.
And I think he gets cuter every year;).
Oh, and we have two dogs, Lilo and Blue. 

We believe in family games at the dinner table. 
And pajama days.
Hubs and I are Walking Dead fanatics.  
Niamh and Philly love to sleep in our bed.

I love tattoos.
I drink a ton of coffee.  
Use to drink a ton of diet coke, too...but trying my best to cut that out:).
I watch at least one Seinfeld disc a day.
I run.
I draw for stampers...
And just for fun, too.
I craft a lot.
And I like pretty clothes.

I believe in Christ.  
He is my Savior.  
He died for my sins. 
Paid the price I owed.
And I plan on rocking it out in eternity with Him.

I'm happy you are here.
I have a Twelve Days of Christmas thing going on...So, stick around...cuz it will get fun up in here over the next two weeks!

Hope you all have a ridiculously special day:).


  1. Love your post there always so perky .. Fab photo's as always xxx

  2. Thanks for sharing a little about your life...I am a fairly new follower - I think about a month now....love to read your blog, you are a great writer and an awsome drawer...
    I am from Denmark...a tiny little country compared to USA or even your states :)...lots of snow here at the moment and cold weather - I hope it last to Christmas Eve but you never know in Denmark.
    I wish you too a very special day

      each time i see your name, i think it is so pretty!:)...


  3. So excited to have found your blog! Can't wait to read more!

  4. Thanks for explaining how to pronounce your daughter's name. I had been wondering about that LOL.

  5. hi krista what a lovely happy little posting ... love visiting you and reading about you and your lovely family ... love your lovely drawings and my granddaughter gracie always asks if you have posted any new ones ... we were thinking and praying for you when "sandy" (my namesake)was around ... happy crafting honey and love sandy xx

  6. Great post as always Krista. Nice intro for the newbies. Your daughters name is beautiful, nice to know how to pronounce it.

  7. Greetings from a tiny, chicken shaped European country, Slovenia. :D I've been a follower of your blog for a while now, but I didn't know half of the things you wrote about yourself in this post. It was very interesting to read it - I love your style of writing. :) And I just looooove your images. Keep on the good work! :D Hugs! xx

  8. Krista you're always like a bit of sunshine, love what you share! I'd of never guessed how to pronounce Niamh, I was pronouncing it totally wrong, lol! I love Walking Dead too! Have a beautiful day! ~hugs

  9. Thanks for sharing about you. I love your drawings and digital stamps they are just the cutest. TFS

  10. I love your photos Krista, they're always so arty and peasant-chic, very pretty :) Your tattoo is beautiful, I'm tattoo free currently, but going to get one soon in memory of my bestie - 17 stars for the 17 years of happiness I had with her before she met our maker again..

    Also, kudos on your Irish daughter - and for being able to pronouce it right! When I was in the States a couple of years ago, I met a girl of the same name...but phonetically - Nee-am. That was an awkward moment. So yeah, big hellos from Ireland for you and your Irish babygirl :)

    Love your blog and love your stamps (:

  11. awww nice post Krista and love the pics x

  12. Another 'make-me-smile' post Krista. Because that's what I do when I pop by. Smile. Loving the outfit, those shoes are just so me and I love the layered look. Don't think I'm tall enough to pull it off but hey a girl can dream. Sorry not said Hi much lately. Things have been pretty rotten, been going into hospital most weeks, they are cool and help me cope, make me understand and make me realise I'm doing everything right. Got to keep smiling. Colouring with your fab images helps me do that every day. might not turn out great if my hands are playing up but I enjoy the process no less. Take care lovely. Zo xx

  13. I've been a follower for a long time now, and am a true SC addict. My name is Joni. Rhymes with Pony, so not as cool as Niamh's name. But I also love Daryl, and hope he pairs up with Carol, and have a little boy like Carl one day. And one day I hope to look as awesome as you or Michonne in jeans. ;)teehee! Happy Thursday Krista!

  14. Ummm.... HI... I'm not new here. But it's safe to say you 'had me at hello'. You're one of my favourite people in blogs-ville... but more so, a sis in Him. Needless to say, I kind of love ya.
    P.S.. Have you seen your OUTFIT?? Gorgeous much?.

  21. Hi Krista!! Love the slip and thermal!! Looks so cute on you. Just landed in Chicago and now on my way to spend time with my family for an early Xmas! So hopefully this WILL be a ridiculously special day! I do have a quick question though. I thought Nikki was going to be in the shop after Nov 30th. Did the date get changed? I am (or was) a figure skater and I can't wait to color her!
