kim 3-002Founder/Creative Director – The TomKat Studio

In December 2008, Kim decided to leave her career in real estate to stay home with her young kids, Tommy & Kate. Always crafty and creative, she started a blog to share her craft projects, decorating and party ideas. She had recently decided to convert a room in her home to a craft “studio” and came up with the blog name “TomKat Studio” from the combination of her kids’ names. Kim’s blog quickly gained a loyal following and readers were asking if they could buy things that she was making, including hand-decorated frames and invitations. On a whim, she decided to open an Etsy shop. Within weeks she was overwhelmed with orders. Her daughter, Kate’s lollipop birthday party was featured on a popular party blog in April 2009 and the demand for her creations soared. Not being able to keep up with the demand, she closed up shop that summer and took a short break. She came back and reopened as a printable party shop.
Her designs have fueled the printable party trend. Her talents have expanded into photo and party styling, which she enjoys immensely. She now spends much of her time styling for brands including HGTV, DIY Network, Barbie, Coca-Cola, Pottery Barn Kids and Shutterfly, as well as shoots to showcase her own products in her new shop! The TomKat Studio Shop was started to making party planning easy. From printable party themes to tableware, cake stands, baking supplies and much more, it is a one-stop shop for all things party!

In 2014, Kim opened a brick + mortar location in Chandler, AZ for The TomKat Studio Shop. Locals can now see all of the fabulous party products in person, as well as an array of gorgeous gifts and stationery. Visit the shop.

Kim’s work has been featured by Pottery Barn Kids, Vera Bradley, Martha Stewart,  HGTV, DIY Network, Sonoran Living Live, ABC15 Arizona Morning and featured in publications such as Parenting Magazine, Celebrate Magazine, Where Women Create, InStyle Magazine, 202 Magazine, The Arizona Republic and Go Gilbert Magazine. She is a contributor for the HGTV Blog, Design Happens and Project Nursery.

Kim has built her business and loyal following through social media. Connect with her on the blog, InstagramFacebookTwitter and Pinterest.

Kim lives in Chandler, Arizona with her wonderful husband, Danny, their two sweet children Tommy {9} & Kate {7} and their chihuahua, Bentlie.
