Hey, I’m Kayla!

I’m a new mom and full-time graphic designer living in Kansas with my husband, Zach; son, Kash and weenie dog, Daisie. I also own a small boutique graphic design studio, Sundae, which offers unique invitation printables, paper goods and branding services.

The blog.

A version of this blog started on Blogspot in 2012. That version mainly served as a space for me to share photos of my dog, participate in link-ups, and meet a bunch of fellow 20-something bloggers through button swaps – remember those?

Today, I want this space to be a place to talk about mamahood, design, life and the art of figuring it all out. Or at least trying to figure it all out.

Are you new around here?

Here are some posts to get you started:

Want to know more?

I was born, raised and still live in Kansas. I graduated from college in December 2010 with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and landed an internship which turned into my current full-time job. Zach and I met in high school (different schools, mutual friend) but didn’t start dating until 2007 in our sophomore year of college. We got engaged in August of 2010 and married in February 2011. We bought our first house in August of 2011 and our first weenie dog, Pixie, came along right after. We had Pixie for about 3 years before we had to say goodbye but, a couple months later along came a sweet weenie puppy named Daisie! In January 2015, we found out I was pregnant with our first child, Kash, born on September 22.
