Happy Birthday, Blog!

ColorMeKatie blog turns 2 years old this week.
Ugh...they grow up so fast...
So I really want to thank you for being so supportive and always making me smile with your comments. If I could I would give you all a gigantic, pick you up and spin you around, hug.
Since the blog is now 2 years old, I thought it would be fun to do a Q&A post. Is there something you would like to ask or know about me? Ask away in the comments and I'll make a post next week answering as many as I can!

2) What's one symbol/thing you'd want to be represented by?
3) What's your faaaaavorite color?


Toast with Charmalade

Aryn Contessa said...

Happy birthday to your blog! *sending a birthday-hug all the way across the Atlantic* I'm following it all the way from Norway and enjoying every bit of it!

My little question is: what would you make if I say the words: ferret, purple and snoring?

I love all the strong colors you use, and all your photos!

Amanda said...

Congratulations! I think your blog is amazing and I read it every day. Instant happiness. Happy Birthday!

Charlene said...

Katie! Congratulations on 2 years!
I stumbled across your blog using stumble upon and have been hooked ever since!

Your pictures make me smile, and whenever I get the chance I send them around my office to spread the love!

My question - whats your favorite way to spend a lazy sunday?

Your the best!

KIRSTI said...

I recently started to read your blog, and I love it! Everytime I need to smile, I just look at your cat-photos. So: tank you! And congrats!

Jamie said...

Love your blog! It makes me so happy to see your photos! You are also an inspiration to my photos! THANK YOU!!

My question: What is your most favorite/craziest/absurd/ugly creation you have ever made??

Thanks for being so cute and so creative!!!

R.M. Koske said...

Happy Birthday! I'm thinking seriously that your blog needs to move from my "eye candy" folder to my "happy" folder - while you're eye candy, definitely, I sometimes skip reading that folder. Happy is always a must-read, and you always deliver it.

My question - How many shots do you have to take to catch yourself in the air when bouncing on the bed? We tried to take a "jumping" photo for a scavenger hunt and had a ton of trouble synching with the timer on the camera. (You should make up a photo scavenger hunt - I bet you'd come up with FABULOUS requirements)

Many thanks for so many smiles.

How Jewish Are You?

Shorty said...

Happy Bloggedy Birthday! I would like to know if you've always been such a colorful personality (as in born that way), or did you become that way in college or found inspiration from the people around you? You know how sometimes you just meet people who've always been full of spirit and life and color, and then there are people who had something happen in their life that helped them see life in a more lively, free-spirited way. I love how you post about your life and the colors you share, not only the physical colors but the colors in your personality and style. This is just such a fun blog to stop and visit!!! Thanks for all that you share!

Linda Sue said...

Your blog is the coolest blog in the universe therefore you must be the coolest person in the universe- is this true? Also another questions, from where do you get your energy- are you bipolar or adhd, or are you just magic?

Anonymous said...

what is your religious preference?

LindaW said...

So glad you make this blog. When I see your latest posts, I almost always smile or laugh. Your pictures are not only colorful and beautiful, but playful and good reminders that life is not all seriousness!

This may be a remedial sort of question, but how do you get such sharp focus on your main figure and blur the background (see Star Trek Cat for example)? Is this something that can be done with a standard "point and shot" camera, or is something you need to be manually focusing? In other words, how much of that technique depends on the type of camera you are using (auto focusing vs manual). Thanks!

HAppy birthday!

Why do you want the world to stay young?

Anonymous said...


And my questions:
You look so, so, SO happy on your photos.
Are you sad sometimes too?
Are you often argue with your boyfriend? (if it happens:)
Do you believe in God? if yes, than which religion/church/community you belongs to? If this is important in your life?

melifaif said...

Happy 2 years! Okay. This is kind of lame. BUT. 'Tis I. It is obvs you LOVE color. All colors. 'Tis I. But, if you HAD to only pick one - or else you die - what is your ONE favorite color? I am going to venture out and guess. And say GREEN. No, yellow. Yes, it is yellow, isn't it?

Louise said...

Happy Birthday Katie's Bloggity Blog!
Katie, thank you for inspiring me, for being so happy and fun and full of joy. I want to be like you when I grow up!
What I'm most curious about is: What is your motivation in life? What makes you get (or jump?) out of bed in the morning? And what do you do to recharge your batteries?

Much love to you!

dana said...

Congratulations! I expect many more color-filled photos and posts in the future.

I was wondering what inspired you to get into photography, and what your favorite camera was/is. :)

Stephanie said...

Thank you Katie!!! And I do have a question:

Do you ever find time to do random shoots for people like me who are just DYING to have you take pictures for them?

I'm getting married soon-ish and have already told my boyfriend that I want to hire you to take our engagement pictures. How much would I have to beg to make that happen?!

So my real question is; What is something you always wished for but never could do/have?

Keep up the good work!

Liis said...

Congratulations! Actually I should say "Happy birthday!", because Your blog ... well, it is You! So sincere and joyful!

Thanks to this amazing blog Your smile has guided me through some depressing times. I was truly miserable on the day I discovered Your blog, but with every picture and every project I was seeing there, my mood rised into heaven - I even laughed after that long dark day!

Now I`m so inspired of Your activities and courage to do what You love, so I have changed or better -I have brought out my spontanious, inspired and curious side.

Thank You SO much for being the light in the darkest night!

Let the sun shine in front of the clouds!

Hi Katie and happy birthday Colormekatie!

The sheer happiness you and your blog bring to the world is amazing. Thank you. You inspired me to put paper planes over a whole wall of my room haha.

Nanna said...

this is not quite a question...

I was first very inspired of your blog. it made me smile, and happier looking at your wonderfully crazy ideas and pictures

so one (VERY COLD) november day last year, we went into town (i live in denmark, the city is Fredeicia), and put up smiley faces and googly eyes on benches, trash cans and buildings.
when people passed by, i saw them smile, and this made me happy.

i truly respect you, and beleive that you have the power to make people around the world smile.

please keep doing so

tons of love

Martini Cat said...

and thank u for all this post and photos, u make me smile =)
here is my question!: how much times Moo rolls in a day?

catbee said...

way to be awesome, all the time.

there is something to be said for someone being able to make a living doing what they love. fortunately the reward for the scraping to get there is a life well lived.

your prolificacy has always impressed me. how do you keep your art-making stamina up? do you set goals for yourself? (...i will make ONE rad thing a week).

also, how do you shake yourself out of a slump?

Nate B. said...

When it comes to photography do you prefer natural light or using flashes to create your own lighting?

Also, Amelie seems like such a huge influence on your photo style I was wondering what other movies inspire you to create?

Rio said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL!! Thankyou for all the hard work you put into your blog. I'm just starting out, and you've been a real inspiration (gawwwwww). My question therefore issss, do you have any top tips for creating a succesful and meaningful blog? Thankyou!!

I love your blog very much! You've inspired me to take my passion seriously and turn it into a career.

What are the steps you took starting from school up to making money and supporting yourself? I really want to peruse the field but I have no idea how to do it and make money doing it.

--sme said...

Happy Birthday! Your posts make me smile!

Two questions:
1) What's your favorite post from the past two years?

Im starting out and learning in school, but i want to be able to work on my own, and i'm still a little new to it all :)

Shelley Ann said...

happy 2 years!!

how did you start and maintain such a popular blog? it must be hard to keep up with all of the new followers!!

Sarah said...


1. I was wondering if you'd want to recommend a camera for me? I know my way around a camera, but I've only used film.

But NOW I'm investing in a digital camera ($1000 or less) before I study in Florence next semester, and I'm gathering ideas.

2. I realize that people before me (I didn't read) have probably asked that, so bonus question:

If you were stranded on a deserted island and you could choose to have either a lifetime supply of any food or your favorite album, which would you choose? And what would the album/record be?

look a little closer said...

Happy birthday blog! :) It seems like most the things I wonder have already been asked! I love that and I love how colorful everything you do is! You must radiate love and color when you walk into a room :)

I saw in one of your posts that you did a creative class of some sorts, when is your next one?

Also, what is your favorite ice cream flavor? :)

thanks for your colors and awesomeness. :)

you rock!

Cause I love them like crazy.

Susan said...

YAY! KATIE! 2 YEARS! :) I have LOVED your blog since the first time I set eyes on it. You are awesome.

I was just wondering, what program do you use to edit? Lightroom, or Photoshop, or both? Do you shoot in RAW or JPG? Also, my MAIN question is: What are your "go-to" moves during editing? (Like, what are the steps you usually follow? Because I love how bold the colors are, and how rich the photographs look, and am wondering what your typical "formula" is, if there is one).

Keep on truckin'! :) You're awesome at what you do! (Making people happy-in case you didn't know).

why you use blogspot? I think 2 years is still a short period of time n my suggestion is that you should use your own domain name so that you'll look kind of proffesional blogger.

Congratulations and Happy Birthday to colormekatie, from the little sunny island, Singapore.

Question for you: In your perspective, what does it takes to be a happy being?


Anonymous said...

Hi Katie!

I am new to living alone, and by a friend's suggestion, I want to make my place more exciting with silhouettes. My first project: I want to pretend I am living a giant, empty medieval hall and maybe cut out a few people for conversation.

Where do you get all of your materials for your projects? What did you use for the shadow project and other paper to wall imaginings?

My question is:

(and I apologise if I or someone else has asked this before and you've answered)

On your post where you showed us how to make a heart lens effect using a filter made out of black cardboard, how big did you make the heart-shaped hole?

I tried it once before but it turned out as an embarrassing failure! Haha.

lucia said...

happy birthday!!! :)

lizzie said...

happy birthday, blog!

question; what/where did you study, if at all? do you work for yourself? I was just wondering if you feel studying is/was worth it, or if working for yourself is more to do with your personality and talent.

whatever you did to make yourself take the photos you do, keep doing it! :) :) :) :) :)

Leovi said...

I like your blog, is interesting.

Lisa said...

Happy Birthday to your colorful blog!

I love asking questions...This may be a difficult one to answer: What is your favorite "subject"/thing/occasion to photograph? Do you have a favorite photograph/image? If so, can you share it?

I like asking people about their "favorites" but have a hard time answering the question myself! ; ) There are so many treasured favorites to have!

And even through all the difficulties that CAian students are going through right now... your blogs are one of the things I look forward to when I'm just too stressed and tired at the end of the day!

Thank you for spreading your happiness!!! I have been inspired by your cheery outlook on life to become more like you (in a "me" way) and less of a stressed out ball of tiredness :P

Happy birthday ColorMeKatie!

My question for you is: have you ever played a musical instrument and what is your favorite sound (any sound. a baby's burp?)? Or what instrument would you LIKE to play? I play piano, violin, (in high school,) marching drums, and taiko (which are these giant japanese drums).

Your blog and your life inspires me to be a better and happier person!

My question is: Do you feel your life is complete, and if so, have you always felt this way or has it only been recently that everything has fallen into place?

I'm afraid I'll never feel complete

Jessica said...

everything you do seems to be splashed with a rainbow, so i'm curious...do you have a favorite color?

Yoan said...

Hi Katie!

Happy Birthday for your blog. I really like to read your blog, because it gives me inspiration of life :)

My question are
1. If you could turn into a fruit, what will you choose? and give the reason :)
2. Which one do you prefer, able to fly in the sky or swim underwater without air?

Thanks :D

Miss Katie,
In the past 2 years, what was your favorite subject to document? Matt and Moo don't count!
I vote for "Big Fat Momma".

kookiepookie said...

Happy birthday to Colormekatie! :)

My question is, what sort of post processing do you do to your photos, if you do at all? I really love how vibrant and lush they always are, and also your creative use of blur. Try as I might, I can never try and achieve anything like it!

Melissa~ said...

Happy birthday blog!!!
Thanks for make me happy every post.
Question....When are you going to visit me?


najodleglejszy said...

happy bday blog :)

1. don't living in a big city make you depressed sometimes? I mean, lots of grayness and stuff. yeah, I know you try to improve it and add color and everything, but it's hard to color a WHOLE city, isn't it?
2. where does all your energy come from? I wish I could be soooooo smiled and full of energy and positive-thinking all day long :)

Jessica said...

Congrats on a great two years!

My question - what is your favorite color?

aquarternote said...

Happy Birthday to your blog!

Ben said...

Katie, you are truly an inspiration. If the entire world was filled with people like you, the world would be infinitely happier and infinitely more beautiful and infinitely more awesome. Thank you for all that you do.

Here's my question for you: what are some simple projects that people can do to emulate you, and to start making the world a brighter and more colorful place no matter where we are?

St. Louis/New York

Sanna from Sweden said...

Hi Katie!
My question: How do you make your photos so colorful? Do you edit them?

Thanks for a great blog! :D

Lindsay RC Wilson said...

Hearty congratulations, from Qatar! (Actually American, but I am living here). You sure do have followers from ALL over the world. I think it is because you speak the universal language of happiness that crosses barriers. Thank you for the sunshine that you are spreading.

My question: Have you ever had someone who was having a bad day interfere with one of your shoots or be angry with it rather that the injection of joy one would expect?

All the best, and thank you.

Lindsay RC Wilson said...

Oh, a couple more. Do you have calluses from all the cutting or do you use some special ergonomic scissors? And how do you keep your scissors sharp?

Jan said...

Do you have a photography blog? For like, weddings you do, etc? :) What are your prices?

Brittany said...
