Hi there! I am Katie McAllister, a 26 year old, living, working and playing in the Deep South. I am not sure what word best describes me, but I’d say enthusiastic would probably be best suiting. I get my love for art from my mother, who too had such enthusiasm for all things crafty. I dabble in everything, from screen-printing to sewing. Having a graphic design background you can pretty much bet that I love fonts, great packaging and of course, the color wheel.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Katie Company! I started Katie Company in 2009 to spread the love of creating pretty things. This one-woman show is run by yours truly with occasional help from my lil’ sister, Mary Keeley, who moonlights as a photographer.
Katie Company is made up of a few of smaller “enterprises” as I like to call them:
There are the Etsy Shops:
Katie Company Inc (www.etsy.com/shop/katiecompanyinc) - a collection of handmade jewelry and accessories
Katie Company Prints (www.etsy.com/shop/katiecompanyprints) – graphic and modern prints with a slight vintage flare for your home
Then there is the blog (www.katiecompanyinc.blogspot.com) where I spill my guts about trying to live a creative life. It also documents things that inspire my creativity and me as well as letting me showcase some of my creations.
Come over and see me!
I am excited to introduce my new collection of mixed media cross-stitch jewelry! I have been working on these for about a month now and am finally ready for them to go out into the world!
With Christmas around the corner and cross-stitch on my mind I whipped up some pretty little gift tags for you to print off ( for free, yes, free!) and use for your very own!!!! Bring a little handmade to you Christmas packages this year!
Fun Fact: Mexican food is my best friend. We talk about everything and it doesn’t judge me or tell me to get over myself. Seriously, we are BFFs. Katie + Mexican food = 4 EVA
Thanks Katie for your fun interview and AMAZING freebie gift tags! You're welcome back anytime!
