Welcome to Kristie & Company, the culmination of more than 20 years absorbing life and using that experience to turn ideas into inspired brands and creative designs.
This is like meet the press, yes? Let me introduce myself…
Fairly well traveled and self-diagnosed ADHD, I am a chronic entrepreneur who lives life to its fullest, and I consider every moment spent a form of inspiration for everything I do. A true brandaholic, some might say that my love for creating brands could use its own 12 step…but I laugh, run with arms wide open to that creative bottle (hopefully Dom)…and I drink. I’m legit, though. I built a career in luxury branding in the hospitality, travel and events industries, so I know a thing or twelve about creating and taking brands to market, and I even run my own wedding venue at Champagne Ranch and my She is Whiskey in a Teacup boutique brand, so I can both empathize AND share that insight with my customers who are looking to tell authentic brand stories from both B2B and B2C perspectives.
They half hire me for my experience and half hire me for my unbridled passion for telling their stories. I handle their brands with complete creative reckless abandon…and I do it well. My killer combo lies in my ability to wrap creative design in a warm blanket of good strategy & authentic messaging. I like to say that I am a right brain with left brain tendencies. So, I am great at helping you get started with all the nuts and bolts flotsam (like getting the right certificates, selecting names that work for web and social, crafting a business/marketing plan, etc.) and then tossing a little gold glitter on your vision with design. And, if you aren’t sure where to start or what to call your new venture, I can help with that, too!
That's the Kristie story...but the real magic happens when you add the & Company - the collaborative creative elixir that transforms our brand into a Craft Cocktail. When you take a hen's nest of women dealt unbridled ambition and creative prowess in spades and pair it with a lifestyle brand, it becomes an Old West Paris Branding Powerhouse of Whiskey in Teacups and Pink Champagne. We celebrate trailblazing women, the brands we build for them, our powerhouse brands - She is Whiskey in a Teacup & Champagne Ranch, and we do it all from the Fabulous French Farmhouse Creative HQ of our wedding venue, barntique & B+B in Wills Point, TX.
We're grit & grace meets pearls & lace.
And, someday, we'll be Ranch & Famous.
