It is hard for me to think of a true beginning to my creative story. I have always enjoyed costumes and creating things. I would throw themed parties just to have an excuse to wear a new costume - Halloween is the second best holiday of the year (Christmas is still number one because its when my big family gets together.) I have been making my own costumes for years, but what really pushed me to be more creative is the Renaissance Festival and my hobby of archery.

I love dressing up for the Renaissance Fair and make a new costume every year. I had a lot of costumes so decided to sell my old ones and they went really quick. Then three years ago I really wanted to buy a new bracer and quiver, since I had just started archery, I couldn't find anything I liked. This caused me to try and make my own. And from there I kept falling down the rabbit hole.....

    I'm Kat and I love to make things; whether it be costumes, crafts, clothes or food. Part of the fun for me is figuring out how things work and if there is anyway that I can make it better.

HandiworkCO is my hobby and my passion which I hope to one day turn into my full time job. I try to make unique and interesting designs. I am often inspired by books, shows, movies and games I enjoy and these influences can be seen in many of my items.
