So you want to know a little more than what I told you on my about page?
Well, I’m one of those quirky, super-introverted, stereotypical designer folks that’s in legit danger of becoming a hermit. I’m an unashamed geek. I love, love, LOVE anime. Did I mention that I love anime? I’m an avid Minecrafter and play with my son on our own modded LAN server.
I work from home so I can be there for my son every day to get him off to school on the bus and to be there when he comes home from school and, because of that, there is a healthy dose of Mom tasks mixed in with my work. I do my best to structure my working hours around his school hours to make sure that I’m fully available to both my clients and my family. It’s a balancing act for sure, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
If you’re into that kind of thing, I’m a classic INFP personality. If you are into that kind of thing, you already know that being into that kind of thing is TOTALLY and INFP thing If you have no idea what the heck I’m talking about here, you should totally go find out what your Myers-Briggs personality type is.
I’m what some might call a seeker, never quite satisfied with how things are. Always chasing the next big idea in my head, always looking, thinking, dreaming, planning, and striving to be better. It’s not necessarily a good trait to have all the time, but it is what it is and it’s me. I’m kind of impulsive and tend to get bored quickly so I’m always working on multiple things at once. You know that person who has 50 tabs open in their browser? Not only am I that person but that’s basically how my brain works too.
I call myself wifey to an awesome man named Gary. We’ve been together since September 2010, although it kind of seems like he has always been there. We had been friends for a few years before and I think we had been in love with each other for a long time before either of us realized it. Once we both clued in about how we actually felt about each other, things happened pretty fast and we went from first kiss to living together in 3 days. Fast forward a couple years and we welcomed our son Zack after nearly eight months of “morning” (more like ALL FREAKING DAY) sickness and 42 hours of labor on in December of 2012. Zack is our wild and crazy, spirited little man. Now, 6 years old, he still keeps us on our toes 24/7.
Where I Live
You can find me in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada. I share a little house on the mountain in the middle of nowhere surrounded by lakes, trees and wildlife with Gary, Zack, and three calico kitties (a momma cat and her two babies). My office is here in the happy chaos of our home and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I feel most inspired when I’ve spent a good chunk of time outdoors in the fresh air. Ideally I would spend that time by the ocean where I can smell the salt water and listen to the waves crash but anywhere that is relatively woodsy and isn’t packed full of humans will do. Living here where I do in the land of lakes, wildlife and few people is rejuvenating for me as a designer and as a person in general. I’m definitely not a city person!
Little bits of Krystal, Pinterest style.
So there, hopefully that satisfied your curiousity! It’s a bit long winded, suppose I should’ve mentioned that I love to write somewhere in there? lol If you want to know anything else, or even if you just want to say hello, please don’t be shy about sending me a message. I’d love to hear from you!
