The Neat Nook

Hello & Welcome


My name is Kate Andersen. I'm a creative consultant/writer/mom, which means I'm usually bouncing between work, family, and my general love of creativity. I'm blessed with three sweet kids – two of whom are twins – and a husband who's funny and pretty cute. In addition to playing with my family, I'm passionate about making pretty things, digging in the dirt and trying to stay organized through it all! I'm honored you're visiting my blog and hope you'll find some inspiration while you're here. If you want to know more about me, click on the "Meet Kate" tab!
