    About

    This Shop Is What I've Always Wanted To Do

    My name is Katy Kristin, I live by the ocean near San Francisco, and I’ve always made things.

    I found a little “Book About Me” I made in school when I was seven, and in it I wrote, “When I grow up, I want to be an artist.”

    I remember my dad teaching me how to sew from one of those little hotel room sewing kits. I had found it in a drawer and asked him how you use it. I was pretty little, but that was one of those super important life moments for me. I started sewing all kinds of stuffed animals.

    I majored in Fine Art at UCLA, and I spent many years doing claymation and special effects miniatures for film and tv. But I always came back to making the things I loved- toys, dolls, whimsical jewelry and illustrations.

    So I started my art and craft business. Now I get to do what I love everyday. If Pippi Longstocking grew up and had a favorite shop, I hope Katy Kristin would be it!

    Also, one day I hope to live in a treehouse, a really BIG treehouse.

      My hero is Pippi Longstocking. Even though I collect too much stuff for my own good, I'm still inspired to create more stuff- whimsical dolls and plush, art, jewelry and more. Someday I hope to live in a treehouse, a BIG treehouse.
