ICMT: A Podcast for Makers!

Sit back and listen while I chat with some of my favorite makers on the new I Can Make That: Conversations with Creatives podcast!  Each episode dives into the lives of these individuals, where we talk about what makes them tick, how they got started, who inspires them, and different ways they find balance in this crazy thing called life.

Hi! I’m Katy.

I like to make things.  All the things.

It’s in my blood.  My father is an engineer with a knack for technology, photography and construction.  My mother is a baker, quilter, crafter and all-around creative genius.  It was impossible to do anything but become a mixture of those two.

I truly believe that happiness is handmade.  Nothing beats the overwhelming rush of pride and pure joy when you create something by hand.  It’s a high that is unlike anything else and that feeling I get while creating is the reason that I keep coming back for more.

Thanks for stopping by and being part of my creative journey!

Leopard is a Neutral, but this Sporty Piko is Not Even Close

I would never forgive myself if I didn't share this version of the Sporty Piko with you.  Much like this version, I sewed it up during testing and then let the pictures go to waste on my computer.  Whomp whomp.  But guess what 2019 Katy?  2020 Katy is here and she's...

Sporty Piko by Patterns for Pirates

I told you that I was on a kick of sharing projects from last year that never made it to the blog, right?  Here's another instance of that -- because we released the Sporty Piko from Patterns for Pirates back in April of last year and I somehow didn't brag about this...
