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!

Happy May the 4th!  Star Wars day is probably the third most celebrated holiday in our family (after Halloween and Christmas).  We yet haven't decided which movie/animated series we will be watching tonight, but I may have listened to some of John Williams' tunes...
