Hello!  My name is Krista Smith.
After opening up my digi shop in the beginning of September 2011, I've been busy filling orders and drawing new designs:).  I am really thrilled and very humbled that people are so receptive to my designs and seem to enjoy coloring them a lot!  I am so inspired by these amazing colorists!!  I have met so many wonderful, talented ladies through this business and look forward to building new friendships, too!   My personal blog,Saturated Canary, is filled with bits of my family life, artwork, and a slight obsession with fashion;). I also run a new challenge/ inspiration blog, Saturated Canary Challenge with my amazing design team.  I'd love to meet you and be inspired by your own creations!  Do stop by and say hello!:)
