Welcome to summer and June. This month we have TWO fabulous designers in our spotlight and they have both been gracious enough to answer our questions.

First up is CathyK Designs. Let’s see what she had to say.

What is your favorite “go-to” color palette?

I like bright and happy colors. And blues and greens. And navy – I’d put some version of navy in every palette if I could, LOL!

What is your favorite treat to have close while designing?

Coffee with hazelnut creamer

Do you have job outside of designing? If so, what do you do (if you don’t mind sharing)?

I worked as an engineer for many years, but am taking time off of that to be with my kids.

What is the current ringtone on your phone?

Whatever came pre-selected on it when I got it.

If you were deserted on an island (with all water/food provided), what three things would you want to have with you?

My husband and 2 sons.

If you could spend the day with anyone (living or dead) who would it be and why?

I’d like to spend the day with my great-grandmother. I remember as a small child sitting with her, stringing beads, and listening to her tell stories about her life growing up. I really wish I could remember the actual stories – I was so young then.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

I’d love to travel to Italy.

What would you sing at Karaoke night?

I would never sing at karaoke night!

Spelunking (cave exploring). I’m glad I did it once, but I never want to do it again!

What’s your favorite movie?

Anything sci-fi

Do you love or hate roller coasters?

I like small roller coasters, but not the really tall ones. I don’t like that first drop!

If you were deserted on an island (with all water/food provided), what three things would you want to have with you?

If you could spend the day with anyone (living or dead) who would it be and why?

My parents – I’d make sure they got to see their grandchildren all grown up and meet all of their sweet great-grandchildren. I’d also want them to see how happy I am!

The Netherlands – used to live there and miss it.
