Hi, I’m Katie!
I blog about arts and crafts DIY projects because I love creating beautiful things. I’m from the beautiful city of Adelaide in South Australia (recently voted in the top five places in the world by Lonely Planet, so please do put a visit to beautiful S.A. on your bucket list if you haven’t already been). However, though I love my city I decided to take a gap year away from home and am currently living in Colombia, South America pursuing my creative dreams. Side note, I’m pretty sure the nicest people in the world are Colombians and the food is great too! Mmm Arepas.
I love being creative, I have my entire life, it is when I feel the happiest. Last year I quit my 9-5 job, took all my savings and moved overseas. Yes, I know that was kind of crazy. But life is about taking risks and being crazy sometimes. I did this because I realised that I was neglecting my creativity as I was always too exhausted working to spend any time on creative projects. I didn’t feel like me anymore. (Also I love travel, so it was kind of killing two birds with one stone.) I wanted to find out what I really love doing and give myself some time to enjoy life and live in the moment. What I have realised is that I can’t limit myself to one specific thing. I love trying a bunch of different projects, and I especially love DIY. So, for me this is the perfect solution to begin a creative career and share what I learn with others. That is where I am at now, and that is why this blog exists.
I also believe that everybody deserves to be treated equally and with respect and with kindness. I would like to spread kindness and positivity even further with this blog and with my creative work. I love the quote, ‘throw kindness around like confetti’ – author unknown, which is where my blog name comes from. You will see that will be a strong theme on my site. I already sell digital prints on Etsy, my shop name is PrettyPositivePrints. My work has a theme of positivity and happiness. You can find that here if you want to take a look.
Legally, I want to let you all know that I am participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com. This means that I can earn some money to keep my blog going, so you will notice that I will link to some products that I believe would be useful for DIY projects or some positive reading material that I have either read, or would love to read.
Please take a look around and enjoy xx
