nizuc-wedding-inspiration

So this week friends I’m in sunny Mexico, part work, part play!  This year the conference I attend twice a year named Engage! is being held on the glorious Nizuc Resort Property. {You’ll definitely want to follow along on Instagram for more moments from an out of this world location, near the secluded enclave of Punta Nizuc.} While in Mexico I’ll be sketching my heart out for both books I’m writing this year.  Yes, you heard that right, both books!  I haven’t officially released details about book #2 but more on that later.   If you just can’t wait check out Instagram […]

{Well friends, it’s time.  Time to share with you very scary-exciting-I-may-fall-off-chair news with you all. } If you follow along on Instagram or Facebook, this won’t come as a surprise but if not, read on…. My hubby and I (Adam) just celebrated our fifteenth anniversary this year.  And yes, friends we are finally “ready” to start our family.  I know, you’re wondering “what in the world took you so long!?”  Well let me tell you.  And before I launch into my story, let me say this, in answer of those wondering why I’m sharing so much on my business blog, […]

I was asked to create a series of artwork by our friends at Snippet and Ink.  Inspired by poignant love quotes I developed five new watercolor patterns to express the words of each poet. {Such an honor to be part of Words to Love By for Snippet and Ink!} Notice I also tried my hand at some hand lettering – really just a fancier version of my handwriting! We’re often asked by couples to help them discover lovely words, quotes, scripture and the like, that express the power of a love story.  It can be difficult to find the right […]

the-greenbrier-artistic-inspiration

The Greenbrier in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia was a dream come true.  Just as I imagined, stepping through the doors of the grand entrance was much like stepping back in time.  As An Artist at The Greenbrier I felt like I was walking hallowed halls.  Grand lives had been lived in these spaces and finally I had become a small part of the spirit of The Greenbrier. I literally spent four days walking the property, lingering in every room, peeking into ballrooms and sketching while perched on countless overstuffed, floral print chairs.  I went outside once friends, just once.  […]

If you follow me on Instagram, you may already know my big news.  For the last year or so I’ve been writing a book pitch and soon after I finally got up the courage to submit it to publishers, I had a contract!  It’s long been my dream to author a book.  I decided that yes, I wanted to be an author and yes the experience is something I consider to be bucket-list- worthy, but no I don’t intend to simply show pretty photos.  Friends #kristysbook (as my intstagram hashtag boasts) will be a book to make you think, one […]
