About Katherine, author of Katherines Corner
You are on the about Katherine page.
Hello and Welcome! I’m so happy you are here at Katherines Corner and that you are interested in learning a bit more about me. I’m Katherine (some call me Katie) and I am honored by your visit to my blog and your interest in learning more about me. I was born in England on Nov 1st 1960 (I’m a Scorpio) I came to live in the USA in 1975. I currently live in a state where I can see the beautiful mountains from my kitchen window and a lake from my upstairs bedroom window.
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 a Mother to one and Grandmother (to five beautiful children. I am a friend to all and I am also Mama to our sweet dog Izzy his photo is below.
After over 35 years managing businesses and working for others I no longer work outside the home. This gives me the opportunity to pursue the things I love. Sharing with you and creating art and designs for my online shops and blog design site.
I treasure every bloggy friendship♥ One of the nicest compliments I have ever received was during an annual work evaluation. I was told that I treat each person like they are the most important person in the world. I was honored by these words and they are forever embedded on my heart. I strive to continue to live my life this way.
