about

Me
My name is Kristan. I grew up in a small town in southwest Michigan smack dab in the middle of Flint and Detroit. At age 22 I moved away from home to west Nashville, Tennessee, a place I called home for 6 years. In July 2013 my fiancĂ© and I moved our family to southwest Florida . I have three fabulous children who are my life… and the source of three gray hairs!
I am a self-taught greeting card designer who loves to sew, crochet, embroider and paint. I love photography, but could never call myself a photographer or even an ammeter photographer. Some day, I will call myself a yogi.
I dream of turning my little doll & woven shop into a brick & mortar boutique full of handmade baby heirlooms. Little dolls, or shoes, or outfits that will, one day, be tucked away in hope chests and be reminisced over for generations.

The blog
I started this blog in early 2011. When kristanlynn.com first launched, it was a small online journal. After opening my greeting card shop, this blog served as a companion to it. After the birth of my third child, I became overwhelmed with 3 children under 3 years old and this blog suffered. Now this space is used as a creative outlet for me to share my life, random thoughts, family photos and inspiration.

The shop
I opened the Etsy shop in 2011, there you can find simple hand drawn greeting cards.
I love to sew and recently opened another shop Stitched Vintage Co where you can find sweet heirloom hand-sewn items and hand woven wall art.

My readers mean the world to me, letting me know you've read a post makes my day... literally… I can't count how many bad days were made great by readers, like you, sending me your messages and/or comments! THANK YOU!
