Kathryn View All →

Hello all!

My name is Kathryn. I live in suburban Cleveland. I have 2 cats, who are my kids. I work in early childhood education, specializing in infants at a local childcare center. I’ve also worked with preschoolers and school aged kids there. I used to be an ESL teacher in South Korea.

I love to bake. My coworkers get to be my taste testers. I enjoy coloring, and I even participate in a coloring Meet Up group. I’m a fan of all kinds of music, but country is my favorite. I started taking a tap class at a local dance studio. Ginger Rogers, I’m not. But I’m holding my own after *mumble years* away from it.

My kitties, Gidgette and Ivory, are my favorite models for my photography. I play around with photo editors to create what I call “Works of Art”. I’m not very good at it, but I do it anyway.

Please visit me at Mighty Kool Kat. You can find my links to social media there.

Apple Bulletin Board

I try to rotate the bulletin board over my changing table every few months. Since it’s fall, I decided to go with an apple theme. Well, that’s not totally true. I found the apple boarder at Dollar Tree and knew I had to do something with it. I used to say that I don’t have…

Naughty Girl Action

Ivory rarely jumps up on the kitchen counter. That was more of Gidgette’s thing (before the arthritis). Gidgette was known to jump up there and steal an entire hotdog. I caught Ivory up there the other night. I think there was a fly buzzing around that caught her attention. I caught her in this awesome…
