Welcome to my corner of the internet I’m Kristy, a 33 year old girl living in Fennville, Michigan. I have two seriously silly kiddos and a very understanding hubs who’ve I’ve been married to for 10 years now. Even though I’m a small town country girl now, I grew up in Kalamazoo, MI (yes, its a real place and yes, I’ve been asked that before lol). I moved out to the lakeshore to be with my hubs and haven’t regretted it since!
I’m the Owner/Artist/Designer of Some Odd Girl Stamps. I’ve been a crafty, artsy girl since forever and finding a career in a creative field has always been my number one dream. I worked grocery retail for 11 years before following my dream and taking the plunge to make my biz, Some Odd Girl, my full time gig. I worked my grocery job and worked on Some Odd Girl (that was like a second full time job!) for almost a year. It became very apparent that to keep up with both (not to mention kids and family) was burning me out and something had to give. Not to mention I wanted to take Some Odd Girl to the next level and that meant more commitment so I left my grocery job in Nov 2010, things have gotten bigger and better! Since opening with only 35 Digi Stamps on January 18, 2010 we now have close to 500 designs as well as Clear Stamps, Cutfiles, and more on the way.
I was lucky to have such a supportive family who has been behind me since the get go. My hubs, Jason aka Mr. Some Odd Girl, does all the tech work for the site, effectively turning my vague thoughts and sketches into reality. My kiddos are constant inspiration just by being them (they were the inspiration behind Tia and Tobie). We sell both digital stamps and Clear Photopolymer Stamps, along with digital Cut Files, a “history” of our stamps can be read on our blog.
I love a life were not only I can make others happy but support my family and keep them happy at the same time! I’m so thankful that thru all the unnamed bumps in the road this is where we are headed.
All of our designs are done by owner/artist Kristy Dalman. You can visit her blog at The Odd Girl.
