Hello & Welcome


Hi! I'm Kate Andersen, a creative consultant/writer/mom blessed with three sweet kids – two of whom are twins – and a husband who's incredibly supportive. In addition to raising my kids, I'm passionate about making pretty things, digging in the dirt and trying to stay organized through it all. Through the blog I try to turn my mess into messages. I share what I've learned so far in hopes of encouraging other creative-aspiring moms like me. I'm so happy you're here and hope you find some inspiration. If you want to know more about me, click on the "Meet Kate" tab.
