Hello and Welcome! I'm so happy you are here at Your Wedding Keepsakes, the blog I created to share items from my shop, wedding planning ideas,wedding photography,wedding tips, tricks, diy, and fun things to make your big day or special occasion extra special. A bit about me- I have been creating and designing artful things for sale for 35 years.

 I hold a rare dual citizenship with the UK and the USA and I am a proud citizen of both. I am an open minded and spiritual person who strives to always maintain a positive attitude and greet each new day with grace, dignity and gratitude. I am happily married to my best friend Robert ( Sparky). I am  Mother, Daughter,Stepmother, a Sister, an Auntie ,Grandmother (to five beautiful children)  and friend. I love making memories with my husband, my family, and friends. 
I enjoy photography, music, art, cooking, reading, writing, movies and making memories with our grandchildren. I always enjoy having friends and family over for a good meal. Food tastes better when it is shared. I am a foodie, giggle.  I love classic films. I am a child of God. I’m uncomfortable in heat exceeding 75 degrees and I love the rain. I sing in the car, very loudly!

It is my goal one day to live in a cottage by the water.  I enjoy bike rides and spontaneous adventures. I love a good road trip! I’m a bit superstitious and I'm afraid of heights and rodents. I believe in Karma. I meditate daily.  One of my favorite places to visit is the Oregon coast. I love the beach ( as long as it isn't to hot). But, I don’t like to swim in the Ocean. I believe there are angels on earth (my Mother is one.) If I had a Super Power I would want it to be the ability to heal. My main guilty pleasure foods are: French fries, potato chips and bacon. But not all at once and not very often. I am a contributor to the Ruby For Women Ezine  you can earn more about me at Katherines Corner too.

When I married my wonderful husband I did everything for our wedding myself ( except for the cake which was a gift). It's a lot of work to make your big day just as you always imagined it. I hope that my blog will help you to create your perfect day.

At Keepsakes By Katherine you will find that my products are always budget friendly and I welcome your custom orders too. I hope you will enjoy your visits here and that you will also visit me at my other blog Katherines Corner too.

I look forward to creating for you.
