She has been a lifestyle and DIY blogger for almost two decades and once her kids were grown and moved out, she and her husband, Patrick, became co-owners of Mucho Mas with Emily as a way to connect with their local community. In other words, Kathy needed to change out of her paint clothes once in a while and get out of the house and socialize!
When it comes to the shop, she loves to create an array of handmade pieces for the shelves. From handpainted mugs to fabric zipper pouches to handmade greeting cards. When she isn’t making items to sell, she helps to organize Mucho Mas’ events and also leads art workshops.
