Hi, and welcome to Kittyloaf Designs! This page is where I get to talk about myself a little, so get ready!
I’ve always been doing crafts for as long as I can remember. As a young child, I had the most fun in my community’s 4-H club’s Arts & Crafts group. We did a lot of painting – ceramics, wood, watercolor, a little of everything. I really enjoyed it.
When I was a little older we build looms for bead weaving. This got me interested in jewelry, even though I never really used the loom. I discovered Fire Mountain Gems and tried out a lot of jewelry-related things over the next couple decades.
I went to school, studying graphic design, and for a while paid my bills doing logo designs. I also started creating my own brick – stitch earring patterns which I eventually began offering up for sale.
Along the way, I learned to sew, knit, crochet, and cross stitch. I learned how to work with polymer clay, and 2 part resin. I took up coloring and then discovered the joy of houseplants.
I currently live with my mom while I’m hoping to school again, this time to get my MLT, and I have an aquarium, two large, sheddy dogs, and four cats. Because of my disability, I’m lucky enough to have the Department of Rehabilitation paying 98% of my school expenses, which is what makes going back possible when most of my income is from SSI. When you purchase something from me, you let me eat a better diet, pay off debt faster, and in general, live a better life.
I’m located in Lancaster, CA.
Kittyloaf Designs is so named in memory of my cat Lucky. Though I only had him for about three years, he made a very lasting impression on me and is greatly missed. You can read more about Lucky here.
