Happy September! It’s been a year since I last wrote a State of the Blog post and we have a lot of new readers (thanks Pinterest) so it’s time for me to do some introductions.
I am, of course, Kate. I moved to North Carolina almost a year ago with my two little dogs. I like the picture above because I look so happy but let me be honest – most days you’re likely to see me with a bun that has a personality all its own.
My poodles are my furbabies and I’m a big fan of posing them for pictures and dressing them like twins, though they are actually a few years apart in age. Latte, the smaller one, is the older dog and Mocha is a tiny bit bigger. They make occasional appearances in my blog posts and YouTube videos.
Blogging is just one of my hobbies – I love crafts, quilting and various other DIY projects. Creating is definitely one of my gifts!
Bible journaling, my planner and essential oils all play a big part in me living my best life. They, and the occasional makeup or baking project, are the main topics of my blog. When I’m not doing artsy things, I am writing or reading. I also lead a ministry team at my church and love watching people see what God can do through them.
I have a YouTube Channel that I love dearly, but updates are kind of random right now because I’m usually without a quiet enough place to record. You can also find me on Instagram but if you’re looking for the “behind the scenes,” un-staged and in the moment pics you’ll also want to follow me on Snapchat (@TheKateMixes).

One last thing – I’m joining in Bailey Jean’s Blogtember Challenge from time to time this month. I’d love to commit to the whole challenge, but going from rarely blogging to blogging every day for 30 days seems pretty unrealistic – and I’m all about setting reasonable goals for myself! If you’re stopping by from the challenge, please say hi!
