I'm Kristina


"I'm Kristina. I am the brains behind The Purple Pea blog. I originally started this blog to document some crafts that I would do around the house. Over the past year and a half it {or *I*} sort of got out of control. I'm good at looking at something and coming up with some way to reuse it/redo it/create it! I am constantly at thrift stores {they know me by name}or some resale shops looking for my next big redo. This is where I share it with you! So please, sit back and poke around. I hope that I can inspire you!"


Kristina was born in Pontiac, Michigan in the early 1980's. When she was 10 she moved to Franklin, Tennessee with her family where she spent the next ten years growing up in a small southern town. She attended the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, majoring in Graphic Design. After bouncing around to different cities in her early 20's she finally settled down  in Dallas, Texas.  She has a Doberman named Jovie and 3 cranky cats.

She has a deep love for birds, crossword puzzles, Frank Sinatra and most old things, like British comedy {?}. She does not like the smell of matches or candles that have just been blow out, the feel and/or sound of Styrofoam, being barefoot and doing anything with her left hand. It doesn't seem to like to work independently of the right.
