For those of you who have followed my blog for a while (or actually know me in real life), you'll know that my background is in interior design. I was really passionate about it during college, but that fizzled a bit upon graduation (#COOL #COLLEGELOANS). However, my love for illustration and graphic design quickly grew. I started hand painting greeting cards in my free time and selling them in both my Etsy Shop and at a local weekly market. Looking back, I'm slightly horrified by what I started out selling... but hey. Pretty sure that's not uncommon. I still haven't had any formal training in illustration, but I learned SO MUCH from Megan (MaeMae Paperie) while I interned for her. Since then I've started having my work printed by professionals (whoo!), and recently even began selling letterpress prints. I have so many ideas for new designs that will better embody my style!! Needless to say, I'm feeling like I've outgrown Kate's Paper Goods. To that end, I'm working on something new and exciting, and can't wait to share it with all of you!! SERIOUSLY. SO EXCITED. Anyways... just wanted to give you a bit of background before these changes take place...
As always, thanks for reading! xo!
