There are so many fascinating Kates out there. And every week, Kate-book.com is resolving to introduce you to a new one. This week, I would like you to meet Katie Lyn Capone, 32, of New York. Without further ado, 13 questions with Kate.
What do you do?
I am a-work-from-home-mom. I do freelance graphic design for companies, but my passion is designing invitations and stationery under my studio name Oh So Suite. And of course, taking care of my sweet baby all the while! Watching her grow up trumps anything in life right now, I must say. I didn’t think I would be a great stay-at-home mom type, but I love it! I treasure being with her every second. She is the best boss I’ve ever had.
How did you get started in your line of work or study?
I have had a life long obsession with paper and all things stationery. It came to a head when my husband and I were planning our wedding in ‘07 and couldn’t find the perfect invite. Oh So Suite was born and it’s been a pleasure working with many different people on invitations to their special events ever since!
What’s something you wish people knew or understood better about what you did?
I have an extreme passion for invitations. I am not sure where it came from…I just love pretty things and when an invitation screams of the host’s style I get so happy I could pee my pants. OK, not really. But I really do a little dance when I hit the nail on the head with a great design!
