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!

Looking to make some new besties?  Join us over at the Wild + Wanderful Facebook group!  It’s where we share the news about practically everything first!  Plus, it’s full of fun people who like crafty things as much as you do!

M4M + P4P Spring Mini Capsule 2021 | Tween Boy “Planning Stage”

If there's one thing that stays the same in life, it's change.  And we can include the changing of Louis' height in this sentiment.  OMG having a tween boy means that his pants will fit one day, they won't even button the next, and you buy him another pair and a week...
