My Story...I am a creator at heart, I just can't help but make things by hand! I grew up creating artwork with my grandfather and learned sewing from my mother. I went to college in New York and came home with a love for patterns, handbags and a need to keep me busy. That's when Kathryn J Handbags came to be. 
Since 2009 Kathryn J Handbags has been guiding me through the creative process of business and I am ready to expand!
In 2015 I became a mommy to a beautiful baby boy. He is the light of my life and he inspires me everyday to be strong, light hearted, and appreciate the little things. My little man's first 5 months were spent in the NICU. There were scary moments and priceless ones. The entire experience taught me a lot about myself and what kind of mom I am and how strong a baby can be when all they know is to survive. 
I can say today that he is home and doing amazing! 
Having a lot of time in the hospital I wanted to make his stay a little more homey. I made blankets and nursing covers that weren't so sterile if you will. Making patterns that are unisex, fun and light hearted are my expansion! So I am happy to introduce Atlas & Ellie.

So if your asking yourself why Atlas and Ellie I'm going to tell you...Atlas is the strongest name I could think of for my lil man when I knew he was going to have a tough start. It also reminds me of my husband and how he tries to take on everything and still come out smiling at the end of a tough day, month or year.
 Ellie means "shining light". I've always loved the name Ellette for a girl and call her Ellie and  once I figured out that I was a MaMa of boys I had to use my girl name and the combination of the two brought me to Atlas & Ellie!!

So since I've started this journey, I've embraced my brand and my life experiences and I want to share my talents with the world. My new quotes to live by help me stay motivated, inspire me to do more, and allow me to shine my light on the world.

-People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle & shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

-To be a star you must shine your own light.  Follow your own path and not be afraid of the darkness for that is when stars shine brightest.

-Thank you so much.
 Shine On!
