About Katie

Hello all! The name is Katie! Nice to meet ya! Some simple things to know about me:

A Summary of My Life:

  • I am terrible at cleaning. My house is almost always a disorganized mess and even when it's "clean" there is still clutter. I'd much rather be creating than cleaning.
  • I cannot resist a nap when it is offered. I love to sleep. I think my husband is jealous of my love affair with our bed.
  • I have an unhealthy obsession with all things Lord of the Rings. Nerd alert!
  • Line dancing is about my favorite thing in the world. Zumba is a close second. Yee-haw!
  • I once toilet papered my own house when my mom told me I couldn't toilet paper a friend's.
The Rest of the Story:

Okay, so those facts aren't really a summary of my life, though they do sum me up pretty well. Here's a more in depth look at me.

I was born and raised in a small town in Utah to amazing parents and three older sisters who are each over a decade older than I am. I was a spoiled little turd because of this. I loved roller blading, traveling, camping, and singing the most. I was sure I was going to be a singer when I grew up. (Though I do enjoy singing to my kids, and singing harmonies with my husband when he's working on his music.)

I spent a lot of time in high school in theater and musical arts curriculum. But it was a Commercial Art class that I took on a whim that got my interests piqued in Photoshop and printmaking. Though I had a miserable time in the class because I was a goofy sophomore among popular, and unfriendly seniors, I learned a lot and developed a love of the digital arts. 

Fast forward a couple of years to 2013. I was living in Las Vegas and met the man of my dreams. Russ swept me off my feet as he wore a too big security uniform at the line dance hall that I used to frequent on the weekends. In just under a year, we made the decision to move back to my home town.

We are now happily married, living in this tiny city with our beautiful little girl Olivia, and our handsome little boy, Michael. They are a year and two days apart, and they keep us busy! A lot has happened in our little lives since we met in 2013, and we wouldn't change a thing. (Except that we both have big dreams and are working hard to reach them in the future.)

I got the idea to start my print and greeting card business, KFPrints, while I was pregnant with Olivia. Russ and I were on the same page about me staying home to raise our kids. But I'll admit, I was a bit worried about money. I started my little business in hopes it might supplement a little. It has been a great creative outlet for me, but I'm eager to make it successful! And as you'll see as you follow this blog, it's going to happen!

Life is a crazy ride. So many things can change in a short amount of time. I have proven this with my life. I've also proven what hard work and determination can do for a person. I'm excited to see what the future holds for me, my family, and my little business!
