hello there! my name is kristen and this is my little corner of the internet where i like to share some random and not so random things with you. i was born and raised in Texas (and proud of it!) and now live in the hill country just outside of Austin with my little family. i married the love of my life, Travis, in april 2009 and we brought our sweet miss Penelope into the world in january 2011….and are expecting our second baby this november 2012!! oh and can’t forget about our furry baby, Molly, who is a huge part of our life too. i am fortunate enough to be a stay at home mama and love everything about it. i do have a little etsy shop that i do on the side for fun…and as an excuse to make super cute headbands/bows for my girl (and me).

i started this blog in october 2009 after reading so many nifty blogs and just got inspired to start my own. i originally wrote mainly about crafty things and DIYs, but as many of you may know, after having kids, i found myself not being able to write as many posts about crafty things. still loving the blogging idea, i just simply turned this blog into a “personal” blog. much better. when i’m not blogging, you can find me running around after miss P, attempting to stay in shape, eating way too much, finding excuses to create something, and loving this life that God as given me. thanks for visiting! i love hearing from you guys and love meeting new people!
