*I’m now a mom to a beautiful and sweet little boy! So yes, much of the blog will probably be about mom stuff since that what I do 24 hours a day now.*
Hi, I’m Kate! We have recently moved to Chicago, IL from Upstate New York where my husband was attending grad school. We are so happy to be back in the mid-west where we were both born and raised. I live with my husband where we share our home with our 2 cats and a terrier mutt. I enjoy making stuffed animals that I hand stitch from felt. I also created the term feltidermy for my mounted faux taxidermy pieces.
I’m a tall, sassy redhead who loves to have fun and enjoy life. I have many hobbies such as baking, cooking, hand sewing and collecting. I have collections of hand thrown pottery, vintage ceramic animal miniatures, vintage animal salt and peppers and vintage mystery novels and juice glasses. I love searching out vintage shops for new curiosities and inspiration. I’m also obsessed with nice soaps, an addiction that I acquired from my mom.
The inspiration for my creations come from old cartoons, nature, folk tales, my vintage ceramic miniatures and my crazy imagination. I can’t help but create things and if they turn out to be cute, well, all the better! I never seem to really have idle hands, even when watching movies or visiting with friends or family, I am usually stitching up my next critter.
