Hello, it's nice to meet you. My name is Kady Yates- Yady Kates to my mom when she's particularly pleased with me. I live in Washington, in a row house with lots of natural light and two lovely boys who are always threatening to get a cat. During the day (and sometimes the evenings) I work as a children's librarian in a busy branch of the local public library system. I spend most of my time making things or thinking about making things.
