Hey, there!

My name is Katy.

I am a business owner, a designer, a photographer, a creative maven, and a fragile human being with heart.

Former magazine stylist, seamstress, how-to expert, tatting instructor, model, and photographer for MaryJane Butters’ publications (such as “MaryJane’s Farm” magazine, “MaryJane’s Stitching Room”, etc.). These days, as well as being a missionary, and author, I am a freelance, freestyle, artistic spirit. I have a passion to create, teach, and share.

I have come to more fully see the worth in the unwanted, cast off, and broken; in spirit as well as the tangible.

From my time as a missionary, working in childrens’ programs, and with the hungry, infirm, and incarcerated, I have come to more fully see the worth in the unwanted, cast off, and broken; in spirit as well as the tangible. The sum of these experiences have, and continue to, shape me and the things I create. They give me new eyes to see and marvel at the simplistic complexities, the beauty and textures, of handmade, vintage, recycled, refurbished, repurposed, restored, and the rustic! “RustiKate” is the culmination.

That we may help give “Beauty for ashes…joy for despair…” (Isaiah 61:3)

Through RustiKate, I hope in some small way to add little bits of beauty to the world, that they may encourage, inspire, and motivate; that you in turn, can, in your own special way, do the same for others. That we may help give “Beauty for ashes…joy for despair…” (Isaiah 61:3)

The name “RustiKate” comes from a combination of  Rusticate (meaning: to retire to the country, become rustic in style, or behavior, to alter, modify, cause to change, make different, cause a transformation) and Kate (meaning: purity, clarity, and light).
