i should be mopping the floor: {about}


Hi. I'm Kristi from ishouldbemoppingthefloor.com. 

Here's my little family:

Over ten years ago, I left a career in event planning to start my own {very} small home-based business as a graphic designer {I actually left the career because of a move to a small town...there weren't a lot of job opportunities in my field in that town, so what's a girl to do?} . 

Six years ago, we moved again...back to central Texas where my roots run deep. In a nutshell, my business has changed a lot over the years, but I still love working one-on-one with people to create designs around their lives, careers and businesses. 

I've been a blogger since 2006. I started ishouldbemoppingthefloor in 2011 as a way to get my graphic business "out there". Ironically, I fell in love with the DIY and crafty side of blogging more than my "real" job of graphic design {shhh...don't tell anyone}. And the blogging has now become a full-time job on its own. And I big-puffy-heart it so much.

We've been DIYers our whole marriage. And I definitely come from a DIY family {you'll see my dad working with me a lot in my posts}. It's such a delight to take something from ho-hum to WOW with our own skills and ideas. We definitely make mistakes along the way and we try our best to be transparent with them so others can learn from our craziness. 

We currently live in a very cookie-cutter home that we are working to turn into something more custom and FUN! We always work to keep costs low and do projects that others can relate to for their own homes. Some of my favorite projects are my DIY kitchen island expansion, our $30 board and batten project and my dining room overhaul to name a few. To see our entire list of projects, including crafts and other fun stuff, click here.

My husband is a high school principal, which also keeps life pretty fun and hopping. Our boys are in elementary school and are the most awesome kiddos I've ever laid eyes and lips on. Seriously, they kind of rock.

Above all, we love Jesus. Like, a lot.

Join me on this crazy blogging journey filled with projects, crafts, recipes, tips and even some serious eccentricities {I'm a self-proclaimed-OCD-anxiety-ridden-looloo at times...so we like to operate on our very own level of crazy around here}.

Thanks bunches for stopping by, y'all.
