About me

Hi, I’m Kristin!

I started 9th&Mayne as a way to cope with the loss of our Autistic 25yo daughter in November 2020. She was diagnosed with Leukemia in October and passed just 34 days later due to Chemo complications. It’s been beyond difficult navigating the depths of grief while trying to continue to live for the family members left behind.

I’m a Watercolorist, Digital Artist, Sticker Maker, Business Owner, Chocolate Lover, Fun-Haver, Pretty Things Admirer, Trophy Wife, and Motherhood Maven. Everyday is a fun adventure, not to be wasted.

9 Family Members + Last Name (Maynes) = 9th&Mayne

I love my business name! It’s my favorite way to remember our daughteR and include her in my every day.

I’ve been a Stay Home Mom to our full-time Blended Family of 9 for 18+ years. I’m getting super close to Empty Nester’hood now that we just have a 16yo left at home. I’m excited for the future and how I can honor our late daughter by creating a fun business that brings myself and others cuteness and joy!

I’m a Life Enthusiast, Artist & Designer, Goal Setter, and Pretty Things Admirer. Some of my favorite things are: Kate Spade handbags, Date Nights with my husband, Family Activities, Spontaneous Getaways, Chocolate of all kinds, and playing with all my toys in my fun Home Studio.

I look forward to sharing my journey with you.

Kristin
