end of summer photo diary

i thought all of you, my loyal blog readers, deserved a little update! i've been soooooo, did i say SO, busy these last few months designing my new jewelry collection AND filming 5 episodes for a TV show called Home Made Simple on the OWN network (that's Oprah Winfrey's network people!). it's an interior design and cooking show hosted by Paige Davis (of Trading Spaces - loved that show!). we visit a family home each episode and re-do a room with all kinds of DIY projects, re-purposing and the like. i'm the interior designer on and off-camera on 5 of the 20 episodes. the second season premieres November 3rd 9AM/8central on OWN - find out more info here - and i'll keep you posted!

the following are some of my instagram photos from the past few months as a photo diary/sneak peek! get excited! follow me on Instagram @mrkatedotcom!

i made new friends on set like Stuart O'Keeffe the talented (and hott) Irish chef who is on a bunch of the Home Made Simple episodes this coming season.

and Thad Mills - the hunky carpenter who helps me execute my designs by creating beautiful custom pieces for the rooms!

my sister Tess stopped by set to help me with some projects.
