Owner and Designer of Katygirl Designs
Hi! I'm Katy. Lots of people call me Katygirl.
I started Katygirl Designs on Etsy in September of 2012. I opened the KGD shop with 5 wall prints up for purchase using free fonts and cheap clip art. Since then, I pushed myself to learn other design programs and also how to draw, paint, and hand letter. Today I have prints, cards, calendars, and many other forms of work for sale. I work really hard to have an original look while staying fresh and trendy and it has been awesome to watch the KGD business grow to where it is now.
I have been married to my husband, Scott, for 13 years. He is loud, fun & crazy; I am quiet, calm & sarcastic - together we bring out the best in each other. I have two beautiful children - Miles and Camden Jane - and a mini-dachshund, Dasher. My biggest passion in life is the Gospel & for others to know Jesus the way I know him.
Some of the things I love most are: Disneyland, laughing, coffee, good music, checkered Vans, the San Francisco Giants, paint brushes, a great joke, watching Jimmy Fallon with Scott, suspenseful podcasts, and a really, really good font.
P.S. I'm a terrible dancer.
Sarah Jane Pearsey
The Greatest Assistant of All Time
This is my assistant, Sarah Jane. I call her SJ for short.
Sarah started working for KGD in 2015 managing all packaging & organization. She works really hard to make your experience with Katygirl Designs perfect - from coordinating washi on the packages to hand written notes in every order - I'd be lost without Sarah Jane! Sarah also keeps our office organized from ceiling to floor, manages inventory, and helps plan out the year for us. She basically keeps this office running.
Sarah Jane's been married to her wonderful and cute husband, Ryan, for 14 years. She loves to go on dates with him as often as she can. She has 2 darling daughters - Charley Jane and Maddie Mae - they are a joy to be around. You can find them all playing games and having dance parties. They are actively involved in their church and host a small group in their home every week.
Some of the things that SJ loves most are: a good pair of jeans & a comfy pair of flip flops. The mountains & Hume Lake. Teaching & a good pen. Rainy days, swinging in the park, the SF Giants (YEAH BABY), road trips with windows rolled down, washi tape & vintage quilts. Eating dessert first & mastering the perfect chocolate chip cookie.
P.S. She's a much better dancer than me.
