Cathe Holden started her career as an advertising agency art director and illustrator right out of high school. A move to San Francisco ultimately landed her in wine country, where she designed packaging for food and wine products. Three children later, her job as a stay-at-home mom mandated a thrifty lifestyle that started her creative juices flowing. Many of her crafts involve using found objects and scraps from other craft projects. Her DIY style falls into the realm of country craft but contains sophisticated design elements, no doubt influenced by her design background. Be sure to check out photos of her garage studio for absolute inspiration. You can see all of her work at Just Something I Made.
