About Me

Who am I?  I am a fervent follower of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. I read and study the Bible every day, the Authorized King James Version, and it has been my greatest joy in life.  In my late 50s, I learned to recite (by song) the names of the books of the Bible, and I enjoy memorizing scriptures by song, with all glory and praise to God as I could not do any of it without Him.

Unlike many crafters, I have not been crafty my whole life - I started stamping and making cards in 2005.  Until 2012, I was employed as an administrative and accounting assistant at a large manufacturing company for 29 years, and I an retired now.  I live in Nova Scotia, Canada, with hubby Brian, who suffered a stroke in 2018.  Our lives changed a lot since then.

We are childless but we love cats and have owned several in our lifetime.  At this time, we have a kitty called Sweet Pea.  We adopted her as a 3-year-old rescue from the local animal shelter in July 2023.  She makes us smile every day!

Here are some photos of our previous kitties, who have been the inspiration of many of my cat-themed cards over the years:

How did I get started?  A friend asked me to do some stamping with her in 2005, and I had a lot of fun!  A few months later I took some card-making courses and after that I was hooked!  It's a joy to make and give cards; I get the pleasure of making the card, and the recipient gets the pleasure of receiving the card, so it's a win-win!  My favourite subject for my cards is cats, and my inspiration many times comes from my own kitties as pictured above. 

How long have I been blogging?  Althought I don't blog as much as I used to, I started my blog June 21, 2013, after being invited to join a design team.  I enjoy making cards, and I love the inspiration I get from other crafters.  I've met a number of wonderful crafters from all over the world, many of whom I now call friends. 

Why "KT Fit Kitty"?  You might be wondering how I chose my blog name.   Well... KT are my initials, Kitty is a nickname, and Fit Kitty was my username on a fitness web site I used to frequent.  Since I was already set up with the name Fit Kitty on Google and Gmail, I decided to stick with it.  Please note that this Fit Kitty is not so fit any more LOL.

Dear Kitty,
Thank you so much for the lovely comment you left on the OSAAT blog .... you've given me a big lump in my throat. Let me be honest with you, I don't make cards Kitty but my sister does which is how I have recently become involved with OSAAT as comments coordinator. I get so much pleasure from all the cards you talented ladies (and gentlemen) make .... oh, and I find myself looking out for your cards because they are always so special and such a joy to comment on. I am sorry to hear that you are looking for work after so many years but you are so talented that I would have thought you could make a new career out of your creativity. Good luck in all you do.
I'm in the process of creating a blog but my hobby is knitting so it's not really relevant to cards (yet) :-) I've called it Dropped Stitches but there are only 2 entries. Knitting is slow :-)
