20 Questions with Ahoy Graphics

Today's 20 Questions, is with the fabulous Kristen Hodges of Ahoy Graphics. I met Kristen through the Homefront Team, but was so thrilled to meet her in person, and be on the HRAST Team with her (lovingly we referred to it as "Harrassed"...but really the Hampton roads Artisans Street Team).

She is a lovely person....seriously, 'lovely', all inclusively describes her. Her craftsmanship is meticulous and she has a very strong hard working ethic, and just such a sweet and generous person.

When I met her, she had a gorgeous album shop, called Fly Leaf Designs, and then she had created a new venture called Pins and Paper. However, leaving those behind and delving into her passion for logos, marketing, and design, she is now a butterfly, as Ahoy Graphics. She is responsible for my logo and worked with me on my branding. It was a wonderful experience, she was very flexible, and very professional. I highly recommend her! PLUS, she is a fellow Navy wife, so what can you do!
