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!

Like many others, I've been struggling with the news of the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I'm stuck in a moment of wanting to mourn the death of such a vital, powerful female figure in US history....and also living in fear of what's to come with the...
And just like that, someone allowed Louis to turn another year older, and start another year of school. We have an official 4th grader in our house! WHAT IS HAPPENING??? And although 2020 is the least typical year ever, I'm really excited to see what he does during...
I showed you my XFactor Crop (ala Peg Bundy style) late last week, but now it's time to bring out the sweeter side of sewing. Because darn if I didn't feel just adorable in the dress version that I'd made for myself! The X Factor Crop & Dress is an adorable...
I'd just like to preface these photos by saying that I find myself accidentally dressing like Peg Bundy all the time. And it's not my fault. I have red hair and I love leopard prints right now....so it just kind of happens naturally. However, these photos are...
I make things, love WV, laugh really loud, drink yummy craft brews, sew my own clothes, and obsess over my sweet boy + hubby.
