Hi, I’m Katherine!
I’m the creative cookier behind the Creating Awesomenessity Instagram persona. I love to throw a party and sincerely love helping people to bring their celebrations to life. I am a Christian woman, wife and friend! I’m married to the love of my life and he’s has the pleasure of being the Business Manager and math brains behind this operation. I try to live my life as a glass half-full kinda gal, so I look for the silver linings in life. I really enjoy when others can find the bright spots in their lives; I truly believe that every day is a gift and it’s our choice to see the awesomenessity in it!
My life involves much more than cookies so, in addition to events and parties, I enjoy sharing different DIY crafts and ideas that help to make life better for people and those around them! Being real? I’m kinda “thrifty” and don’t like to spend a lot of money on events or projects. The majority of my life revolves around me seeing something I like, looking at the price tag and then saying “Nah, I bet I can make that…”
On a personal note, I am a serious “hugger” and will hug pretty much anyone I meet. I love to eat and the quickest way to my heart is surely through my stomach. I’m a Navy brat, so the traveling bug bit me when I was little, and it’s no wonder that I love to travel the world. I am the creative mind behind the team, seeing project potential everywhere, much to the chagrin of my other half. I am incredibly visual, love colors, discovering how things work and building things with my own hands. I am very easily distracted by shiny objects, often to the frustration of anyone trying to hold a lengthy conversation. In addition to things that involve luggage and a passport, I love to spend time with the bestie, read, scuba dive, go to the movies, kicking butt and taking names on Just Dance on the Wii and making new friends!
The bestie is the tech brains and financial sheriff behind the team. He’s the Business Manager and works hard (sometimes in vain) to keep me from buying everything pretty in sight. Jay is, hands down, the better dancer of our duo and loves life just as much. He’s a native of Chicago and is all things Bears, Bulls and White Sox. In his professional life, he masquerades as an Research/Data Manager for a local non-profit and multiple ministry leader every other moment of the day. He is currently pursuing his Masters Degree in counseling and our QT involves a bed…books, his computer and my iPad. His looks may be deceiving, but he is certainly the more laid-back member of this team!
