Kate and Caboodle began as a blog, then turned into me selling my hand crafted items. I love to create things for friends and family and after a bit of encouragement decided to share them with you as well!
Here is just a little information about me and my background:
As a fourth generation Idahoan I’ve grown to love my home state and I cherish living nearby all our family. I was born and raised in Boise and call myself both a Vandal and a Bronco. Originally I started my studies at the U of I as a Computer Science major, but changed to Family Consumer Science Education my sophomore year. After graduating from the University of Idaho with a degree in FCSEd I went on to get my MS in Educational Technology from Boise State University while teaching in the Treasure Valley.
In 2009 I married Mr. Caboodle and we started the “Berserk Blessed Life” we now live.
I taught middle school for nine years, as well as working part time for our district office as an Educational Technologist, until a chronic medical condition required me to “retire” at a young age.
In October 2012 Little Man entered our lives through the blessing of adoption. I love above almost all things being mommy to this amazing, strong, little man. Then in August 2016 after fighting infertility we welcomed our Sweet Girl into our lives. Between the two of them I’m surrounded by spunk, sass, and life daily.
Above all I enjoy my life as a SAHM (Stay-at-home-mom), wife, and artist. I do the best I can do be a great wife and mommy all the while surviving my “berserk blessed life”.
