WHO ARE YOU?
My name is Katie, and I am a full-time graphic designer with a love of history, the reliability of a finely crafted Swiss Atomic watch, and the eating habits of a twelve-year-old. You can learn more about me on my About page.
WHY DID YOU START THIS WEBSITE AND BLOG?
After living in a 400 square foot studio apartment in California for many years, I suddenly with little warning or preparation moved halfway across the country, bought a house without having first set foot inside of it, and began working from home.
Because I had lived in such a small space for so many years with very little room for “stuff,” I found myself sitting in an empty house with nothing to my name beyond a few items of clothing, a computer, and a fairly impressive DVD collection. I realized that I was in the position to design nearly every aspect of my life from the ground up – be it through clothing, interior design, product design, or even the layout and organization of a sock drawer, which is seriously important, let me tell you. I began this blog to document my progress, process, and thoughts. You can read more about what this blog is about in my introductory post here.

I’VE SEEN YOU MENTION YOUR OTHER WEBSITE / HOBBY BEFORE. WHAT’S UP WITH THAT?
I’ve always had a great love of movie costumes (Think Gone with the Wind and Marie Antoinette). One day I discovered the same costume used in two different films. After a little bit of research, I found out that this was an extremely common practice. After that day, I began to find reused movie costumes in many of the films that I watched. Eventually, a friend convinced me to start Recycled Movie Costumes which documents recycled props and film costumes found by myself as well film lovers from all over the world.
