Hi! My name is Kristi & I am the owner here at Creative Kristi Designs. I started as a blogger (you can read my craft/diy blog, Creative Kristi, here) who wanted a beautiful design without paying over $500 for it. I didn’t even want to spend any money to be honest.
I started by opening up my favorite photo editing program and playing around. Then I would Google how to insert the graphics I made. That paved the way for me to go full on tech geek and learn coding, CSS, HTML, etc.
I then offered to help other blog friends to make buttons, headers, etc. for free for them. They all encouraged me to open a business. After attending a blog conference for the first time in January 2011 I was feeling empowered enough to start Creative Kristi Designs in February 2011. More than 2 years later I am making an income, learning a lot & enjoying every minute. I have designed over 100 blogs (full or just parts of them) and love what I do.
My mission is to provide gorgeous, custom, personal blog designs at an affordable price. I do accept barters and trades if the trade is appealing enough and I believe will benefit me as well.
Personally I am a military wife of 6+ years to my wonderful husband, mom of two with one on the way, homeschooler & overall crafty person. We live in Maine with our cat, Toby & enjoy spending time in the summer at our family’s cottage on the lake.
12:30pm- 3pm. Occasionally I will also work from 8pm-9pm
Weekends & Holidays:
I do NOT work on weekends or holidays unless we schedule a blog transfer or design install then. No exceptions.
If you see me active on Twitter or Facebook or Google+ outside of these hours that does not mean I am working. I use those for both personal and business as well as my craft/DIY blog.
