I’m Katie and I’m the other half of Mags & Company. I’m a wife and mom to young school-age twins (a boy and a girl, so fun!) and also work as a graphic designer by day.
Even though I now live and breathe design and crafts, I started out exercising other creative outlets in high school like writing, playing instruments and being in drama club. It wasn’t until I decided to “try out”/major in graphic design going into college that I fell head over heels for the field, with typography being my first love. While there, I was able to take courses in quilting, silk painting, jewelry-making, calligraphy, and really immerse myself into the world of crafts. Fun fact: calligraphy class is where I met Maghan! And there’s been no looking back ever since.
I also credit the popularity of blogging after college for my growing interest in crafts. Particularly paper crafting, which I still love to this day. Reading about this crafting community day after day made my mind swirl of all the possibilities and fulfillment that could come out of it. I was hooked.
Nowadays, while still learning and growing as a designer, my downtime is spent raising my kiddos (of course art projects being one of our favorite times together), slowly renovating our house and going on this fun adventure with Maghan. It’s nothing new – we created our first products together right out of college!
Some other random facts about me: I’m obsessed with podcasts (true crime being my current fascination), have a special place in my heart for memory keeping, love to shop for fun finds and recently co-authored and illustrated a children’s Christmas book!
Enough about me! I’m so looking forward to sharing the next chapter of our adventures with you!
