A couple of years ago, over on Seattle Mamas, I started a series interviewing local powerhouses who started with an idea and turned it into a crazy reality.
It was so popular, I thought to myself, 'hey self, you should do the same thing, except this time, you should stalk some more of your favorite bloggers from all over'. So, I created the Makers + Shakers Series: 8 Creatives You Should Follow.
The series was so popular, I decided to continue it with 8 more creatives!
Today we are meeting Kristi Murphy, a lifestyle expert and the founder of KristiMurphy.com, an award-winning DIY blog where Kristi shares with her readers easy DIY ideas for a home, party, wardrobe, holiday, meal, or wedding!
Not only does she have the coolest and chicest ideas that are straight off of your favorite Pinterest feed, they are actually doable...no, really! Her goal is to achieve the fabulous looks she sees in magazines on a limited budget. See why I stalk her? We have the same ideology, so read on and learn all about her....
Please tell our readers a little bit about who Kristi is.
Hmmmm … Kristi is a midwestern girl who has been crafting her whole life. My dad says he used to go to work, and I would be working on a project. And he would come home from work, and I would still be working on the project.
I guess I have the patience for DIYing, plus I LOVE it! One of my first DIYs was a tie I made my dad. I deconstructed one of his old ties to see how it was made, and I reverse engineered it. It’s kind of morbid and special all at the same time, but my dad saved the tie and says he wants to be buried in it :-).
