Lace & Whimsy is a blog and shop from the wandering mind of Kathy d. Clark, a blogger, illustrator, and feisty fairy princess. When she's not writing about herself in the third person, she can usually be found taking a nap or a bubble bath.

Why I started lace & whimsy...
To be perfectly honest, I had no idea where I was going with Lace & Whimsy when I started it as a personal style blog in 2014. I've always had a love for clothes, but for most of my life I lacked both the money and confidence to let my personal style truly blossom. Within the past few years, my love for clothing has grown into a form of self-expression. I love adding whimsical touches and sometimes pile on too many accessories. Showcasing my favorite outfits is a big part of why I started Lace & Whimsy. I found that on Instagram I really enjoyed sharing my personal style and bits of my life. Wanting a less ephemeral way of sharing, starting a blog seemed to be the perfect solution. So laceandwhimsy.com was born.
My favorite thing about lace & whimsy is that it's constantly evolving.
My blog focus soon shifted away from the personal style aspect and toward a creative lifestyle vibe. I'm the type of person who can teach myself how to do anything, so long as I am determined to learn. Customizing and designing my ever-changing website made me realize I had found a true passion here in my little corner of the world wide web. Through wanting to make my own unique blog graphics, I taught myself how to draw digitally. Delving into the world of illustration opened up a whole new world for me and the creative business side of things began to take shape. In 2015, I launched my sticker shop and illustration services.
