Hi! I’m Kristine.
As a work-at-home-mom (WAHM) with 2 beautiful boys, every single day is filled with diapers, clutter, tantrums, laundry, conference calls, writing, researching, endless cooking, play dates, budgeting and, yes, love for my family.
I’m just a woman struggling through parenthood just like you.
Some people would call me weird, others may call me down to earth. Nerdy? Centered? Lazy? Resourceful? It all depends on the day.
My focus is to create some semblance of order in the chaos of daily life.
As an empathetic former project manager and organization nerd, helping others through their chaos is what I do. I GET IT!
Queen bee on the job. I got you, mama.
Story of the Blog Name And Logo
I’m asked all the time where the name and logo of KrisBeeMama came from.
It’s a little strange, right?
What could it possibly mean? Beware, the story is a bit lengthy.
Originally, I was going for something to show I was a mother who is slightly “crispy” (a play on the term “crunchy mama,” someone who uses mostly natural products and remedies) since I used to want to be a “crunchy mama,” but both money and practicality in my daily life got in the way.
So I tried CrispyMama and KrispyMama (since my name starts with K), but those were already taken. Then, I made a list of names I could use that were similar.
One of those ideas was KrisBeeMama, a play on the original idea that also ties in to my first and last name (Kris B.) and incorporates a fun, quirky bit (I LOVE bumblebees and studied them in college). It didn’t hurt that I could toy with “queen bee” or “hive life” for my writing!
When it came time for a logo, my husband, the artist, came to the rescue.
And there you have it. A name and logo that seem odd but make sense in a strange, long-winded way.
Like every other decision and thought process, it took many winding roads to get to the destination.
(the logo actually started with a single baby bee…then I had baby #2 and my husband happily added another)
