Founder | Artist | Wife | Mama
Hello! And welcome, I'm Katrina Crouch.
Wife to fellow artist and master chocolate chip maker, mama to a car-loving toddler, quoter of Jane Austen, and a recovering perfectionist. Together we are striving to create an elegant life while still allowing our family to function with ease and grace rather than just with "beauty".
My happy place is a flower garden with a shady spot to sit, some snacks and time to draw or chat with friends. If there's a place for our babies to play and ramble safely close by? That's the icing on the cake!
Most days you can find me dancing with my son to anything with a beat, going for walks around the neighborhood, and sneaking one of my husband’s chocolate chip cookies! I love feminine details—chiffon ruffles and peplums are especially close to my heart right now. I make it a point to put myself together at least a little bit every day. But realistically, a top knot is my main accessory and I currently have a little snot on my shoulder from when the toddler wiped his nose after an "I want Cheese Its for dinner" meltdown. Haha! Apparently that is typical for the stage of life that we are in right now, and I am learning to embrace it!
If you're dying for more:
I’m a 1 with a 2 wing (Enneagram)! I feel like that describes me pretty accurately—I’m a perfectionist about my own work and really strive to do what is right and good, but at the same time, I have a lot of feelings in my heart and love to love on other people. When I’m in my element, I can be bold and spontaneous.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ and would be lost without Him! Regardless of what happens with this business or my family, I can rest in knowing that He loves me and is in control. That's a big deal for this perfectionist/control freak!
Despite having two professional artists in our home, we have very little artwork on the wall! I have a fear of commitment... Must be the “one-ness” as mentioned earlier!
We struggled to conceive our son due to a hormone disorder (PCOS). We are so thankful for our little miracle and do hope to continue to add to our family in the future.
My wedding invitations were burlap and lace inspired. Yes, I designed and illustrated them myself. And no, they will never see the light of day again.
