Hello! Welcome to Withywindle. My name is Kat.
I am a graphic designer, artist, writer, DIYer, bookworm and crafter.
I specialize in print media design, but loving design is a lifestyle that pours into all the aspects of our lives.
I believe in bright colors, polka dots, yard sales and shenanigans.
I have a weakness for gummi bears, used bookstores, all things nautical and anything that comes in the color sunshine yellow.
I usually don’t love things a little, I love things a lot.
You’ll likely find me with a book in my hand, a grin on my face and a camera not too far behind.
I want to find art in whatever I see and cheer in whatever I do.
I believe life is beautiful; if you don’t see it, you’re not looking hard enough.
“It isn’t the great big pleasures that count the most; it’s making a great deal out of the little ones.”
- Jean Webster
Thank you for joining me on this journey as I share my journey as an artist, things that make me smile, and the crazy DIY renovation adventure I’ve taken with my handsome husband, “Moose”, when we bought our first home in the greater Boston area.
The problem with writers, you see, is that they can never stop writing for long.
Oh, are you wondering what a “withywindle” is?
I grew up reading before bed with my Dad. I have many memories of reading Tolkein’s Lord of the Ring’s trilogy with him. In the book there is a character whose name is Tom Bombadil. He is a magical, merry guy who speaks in songs and loves leading a simple life. He lived on the banks of the magical Withywindle River.
Withywindle is about the simple, carefree, happy, beautiful things in life.
