|My name is Katie and I've been working professionally as a graphic designer|
for more years than I can remember! Creating is my passion and aside from
being a wife and a mom, creating defines me.
I have always been a scrapbooker. Since high school, I was an avid
photographer, yearbook editor and documentor. After my daughter was born,
scrapbooking took on new meaning and I worked at keeping albums of all of
our events and outings. Meanwhile I was working as a freelance graphic
designer, carefully balancing my life as a mom with full-time work although
I don’t know that I ever mastered the balance thing. The self-discipline to be
self-employed is always a challenge. So to help myself get my work done, I
moved all my scrapbook supplies out of my home office so I would focus on
work instead of being tempted to scrapbook. Well, the urge to scrapbook was
so intense that I went digital with my pages. Just two months after going
digital, I started selling downloads. And six months after going digital, I
launched DesignerDigitals.com and dropped my corporate clients to focus
on designing for scrapbooking. It was life-changing.
And here I am, nearly 15 years later. Living with my husband and our dog in
our empty nest with my daughter and son-in-law stationed overseas with
the US Army. Designing digital downloads for scrapbooking, designing for
Simple Stories for paper crafting and licensing my art [through Wild Apple
Graphics] for various markets including fabric, home decor, wall decor
It’s a dream job.
