A Playful Day Profile

Welcome I'm Kate and I like to tell tales.


My love for storytelling was instilled by my grandfather who spent many hours weaving tales together for me with little else other than his powerful imagination. It was my father who taught me the rule of thirds when I was given my first camera and with the ability to capture and tell tales, my life of chasing inspiration and nourishing my need for creativity began. It eventually led me here, to A Playful Day.

This is a space that I created as a reminder to seek playful moments that invigorate us and make our hearts glad. On the blog you will find stories about parenthood, musings on life, recipes and projects I’m working on, personal or professional. The podcast is currently on hiatus till I find some creative juice to get going again regularly. I shared stories about making in a sustainable way with featured guests, projects and as much inspiration as I can hope to pack into 40 minutes of audio. From the very start, this place has been somewhere to collect thoughts and document things that bring joy and strength. 

You are so welcome here.
