My name is Krista Lord and welcome to my blog about motherhood, art, and my daily life. I don’t intend this blog as a diary or personal journal, but rather a space to share little scattered moments and projects that might inspire or at least be relatable. Please feel free to leave me a comment or thought of your own.
Here are a few things about me:
Family: My husband Jeramy (yes, that is how you spell his name) and I have been together for over 13 years, and married for 4. We have a 1-year old son, Simon, who is the greatest joy of our life together. We still debate on whether or not to have more children. We share our home with two little kitties, Molly and Sam.
Maine: We live in central Maine. We love it here. Both Jeramy and I have lived here our whole lives, and though we often talk of running away to Ireland, we really do feel lucky to live in such a great state. We get to be close to the ocean and the forests, and to experience the extremes of the seasons. Our current home is not ideal, but we are learning to make the best of what we have until we can move into someplace better suited for us.
Work: Jeramy works full time, night shift, for a large company as a machinist. Working nights means that he requires time to sleep during the day, which is difficult, but we have adapted as a family. I work part time on the children’s floor of our local library. I have a lifelong love of Children’s Literature, so it is a happy place for me to be. I also have flexible hours which enables us not to require daycare. This year, I am also working on establishing an online shop for my art and crafts.
Hobbies: I love art. I have my college degree in art, with a minor in art history. I consider myself mostly a printmaker and a painter, though I also enjoy many other forms of creative expression. I am currently trying to make more time to fit art and creativity back into my daily life. I hope that I am role modeling my creative passion for my child.
