Hey there! I am Kristin Clove, and I am so excited to be here today with The Dating Divas! I have been designing for myself, friends, and family for a long time, and opened my etsy shop in the end of 2012. Originally, I just wanted to earn money to go on a cruise with my husband, and since then my little business has grown bigger than I ever dreamed. My favorite thing about what I do though, is meeting some of the greatest people ever through design projects!

A few facts about me: I love color! I CRAVE color all around me and that comes through in my designs. I need to be in light, open, airy places. I love citrus fruit. Freshly squeezed lime is my favorite smell in the entire world. I am a font-lover (there is a perfect font for every occasion!). I grew up in Wyoming, have lived in Boston, and spent most of my adult life in Utah. Mexican food = yum! I love to read. Spring is my favorite season. I hate wearing shoes, but if I must wear them, they had better be cute! Creating things is my passion. Laundry is my nemesis. Chocolate can change my mood in an instant. I have repinned almost every single fudge recipe there is on Pinterest. I am obsessed with fresh flowers. My family is everything to me. My husband, Tyrel, and I have been married for 9 years, and we have two beautiful and SPUNKY daughters – Lydia and Elsa (yes, EVERYone asks if she was named after the movie. nope, she wasn’t – she was born 2 years before it came out!). We live in a tiny town in central/ southern Utah and I am a full-time mom and part-time designer and photographer.

I attended Utah State University (Gooo Aggies!), and graduated with a degree in Journalism, Public Relations emphasis, and a minor in Ornamental Horticulture, which basically is a fancy way of saying that I know a LOT about writing press releases, trees, flowers, plants, and weeds. My FAVORITE classes were my floral design classes, followed closely by a few courses in web design, graphic design, and landscape design. I probably should have noticed that the common thread in all of these was the DESIGN element and switched to a design track. 🙂 Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved to draw and paint and create. It makes me happy that I am able to do this for “work” now. I love designing some of the fabulous printables The Dating Divas offer on their site. I actually started working with these ladies last summer, so you may have already seen and used quite a few of the printables I have done!

I LOVE doing custom projects – announcements, invitations, family mission statements, handouts. Send them my way! I enjoy the challenge of taking YOUR ideas(however specific or loose they may be) and creating something unique and perfect for YOU!

About the Author: Chrissy

I am a busy wife and Mother to three beautiful children! I was raised in California but I now call Texas home, and I love being with my family more than anything in the world! I have LOTS of different interests and love learning new things. Photography and being a wife/mommy are what make me the happiest, but water skiing on a hot summer day isn't a bad second choice!

  1. We LOOOOOVE Kristin!!! She is so talented and SO amazing to work with! Definitely one of my go-to gals when I need something designed for ME! {Like baby shower invites, party printables, etc} Love this gal! XO

  2. Your designs are beautiful Kristin! As someone who graduated with a design degree, you give me hope that I can do what I really want- be a stay at home mom and design too! I loved the “because someone we love is in heaven, there is a little bit of heaven in our home” design. I love the colors!

  3. Your designs are beautiful! I’m glad there is someone out there with that kind of talent for those of us who are not so talented in that area’).

  4. Oh, my! I love all of your items! The colors are fantastic!!! We are remodeling almost every room in our home so, I would be thrilled to have many of these prints to update…especially our bedroom. If I had to pick a favorite…Love you Longer.

  5. “Love you longer” is my FAVORITE! Describes my husband & I to a tee! We are newly weds, and just found each other later in life, my husband 51, and I am 37. We say this all the time & would love it in our bedroom! Thank you for all your designs, gorgeous! ;(

  6. I am in love with the “Because someone we love is in heaven, there is a little bit of heaven in our home” printable. Will definitely be printing it for my mom with our without a gift card. 🙂

  7. “Because someone we know is in heaven, there is a little bit of heaven in our home.”

    This is beautiful and perfect for our family wall. It needs some updating but my husbands mother passed away before she could meet our boys… But I really feel her in our home no matter how far away she may be. <3

  8. I so love all of her things but feel an emotional draw, {pardon the pun}, to the “If I had my life to live over” & “Because someone we love is in heaven”! Both are things I have said to my adopted daughter MANY times!! One for exactly how I feel for her & the other when she lost her natural father!!

  9. It was hard to pick a favorite. Kristen, you have an amazing talent, totally jealous. 😉 That being said I am going to order your “Because someone we love is in heaven, there is a little bit of heaven in our home.” I absolutely love this quote.

  10. I love the “I would have found you sooner” print, but there are so many other’s I would love to have as well. What a talented artist!

  11. Dress Up, Dance, Giggle, Twirl, and Play – Little Girl 8×10 YOU print digital file download Chalkboard style. This is really cute for parties or just near her dressup station in her room!

  12. Hey Kristin!

    It was such a pleasant surprise to see you on here! What a fun talent you have! I love your work and have so many favs, but if I win my fav choice will be…

    “Our Deepest Fear – Marianne WIlliamson”

  13. Since I have just met my love (and we’re just a bit “older” with grandchildren!), I have to say, my favourite is “Love You Longer”. We tell each often that we wished we’d met earlier so we’d have more time (& more energy) with each other.

  14. I have gotten several things that I have loved. I would love to get some custom stuff for little boys rooms that have the stripling warriors or captain Moroni and some other scripture heroes. You do good work sister!
