about Krista

Welcome to my blog!

I’m Krista Noorman, a small town girl living in Michigan with my husband and two kiddos, writing books and sharing about our life. I started this blog waaaaay back in 2005 to share my photos with family and friends and it’s become so much more than that since. I’ve made so many wonderful friends through my little corner of the web and connected with so many talented, crafty ladies. This blog is still mostly my personal thoughts and goals and photos, but I also share about projects I’m working on (scrapbooking/Project Life, writing, other hobbies, etc.).

A little more about me:

• I’ve lived in Michigan almost my entire life. I love it more with each passing year. So much beauty in our state.

• I attended Cornerstone University back when it was still called Grand Rapids Baptist College and studied music education. No degree earned, though. At the age of 19, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to be when I grew up, but I always knew I wanted to do something creative with my life.

• Enter photography. I fell in love with it and became a wedding photographer for 8 years.

• With my photography skills and thousands of photographs of my family, I developed a love for scrapbooking. My favorite method of memory keeping is Project Life®, an amazing and simple system created by Becky Higgins. I was so honored to be a member of the 2014 Project Life® Creative Team.

• I love to travel and am thankful for the places I’ve been able to visit over the years – several European countries, Mexico, Canada, the Bahamas, and many of the beautiful states in our country. So far! :)

• My husband and I lived in Germany while he was serving in the Army. He served two tours in Bosnia – one during the first year of our marriage. We survived it. We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary this past summer (2015).

• I’ve taken part in NaNoWriMo three times. In 2008, 2009, and 2015. The first two years, I completed first drafts of full novels, but it wasn’t until 2014 that I finally published one, The Truth About Drew, young adult Christian fiction. My second book, Goodbye, Magnolia, a contemporary Christian romance, released in the Spring of 2015. In the fall of 2015, I took part in NaNoWriMo again and completed the first draft of book one in a young adult Christian dystopian series I’m planning.

THANK YOU so much for stopping by and taking the time to get to know more about me. New blog posts happen about 3-5 times a week. Hope you’ll come back again. And feel free to comment. I’d love to get to know you.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord;
plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you HOPE and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11
