Hi, I’m Kristin. Creative person, dog-lover, wife, photographer, crazy online shopper… yup I guess I have many names. But let’s see, where to start….
My wonderful husband and I have one child, our puppy, Zola. (She is like a real child, and between work and home, she takes up a lot of my time, but I enjoy it.) She is our source of amusement, and unconditional love from someone who can’t ever be mad or talk back is a little bonus.
What family pic is complete without some glowing demon eyes and a tongue?
I have been a graphic designer for the past 12 years. I attended The Art Institute of Las Vegas, and got my degree in graphic design, and the rest kind of just fell into place. I have a full-time job as an Art Director, and I freelance design as well. I enjoy being creative in all aspects, photography, decorating our house, putting together invitations by hand, you name it, I strive to make it look good.
And of course, we all need stuff, workout stuff…. healthy food stuff… so I have become a crazy online shopper, sale finder as well. My husband always jokes when a box shows up at the door “What did you order now?!” but he has learned my madness and now attempts to browse and spend tv time at night browsing the web for a good deal.
And finally the blog name…. Gyms Girl. Well when I started going to the gym a lot, my dad always used to tease me, and as I would be running out the door, he would say, “Ah, off to see Gym again huh?” I love my dad. This blog is party in dedication to him. In 2014, he unexpectedly passed away, my life has never been the same and I know it won’t be. But I thought, all this stuff that I share, and talk about with my co-workers and friends, I should share that. I needed something new in my life, and so GymsGirl was born.
Welcome everyone, nice to meet you!
