I can't believe that this week is Thanksgiving! We are a little over four weeks away from Christmas. Like many of you I love to shop small and handmade for the special people in my life. This year we were fortunate to be a part of two incredible gift guides.
The first one we are part of is The 2016 Flourish Holiday Gift Guide. This gift guide is 100% all handmade items and we are incredible proud to be selected to part of this guide.
The Second Holiday gift guide we are part of is Rebateszone.com/holiday-gift-ideas-women-2016 This gift guide is an awesome mix of both handmade and non handmade items. You are sure to find something special for the women in your life here.
Wishing you all a very Happy and Thankful Thanksgiving! We at Salato are so Thankful for all of you!

You might have noticed that there hasn't been much activity on our website the past several months. This is because of several huge changes in our lives.
This past February we had our second son Carson. Carson decided to make a grand entrance and come six weeks early. Boy was I not ready for that! I had my orders and timeline perfectly planned out according to his due date. When my water broke around 11pm Feb 28th all I could think was: This is way too early, I don't even have a hospital bag packed, S*&T I have so many orders I still need to finish! Carson was born the next afternoon and even though he was completely healthy he had to stay in the NICU for 16 days before getting to come home. He has been the best baby and is such a blessing to our family. You would never know he was a preemie, now at 3 months he is almost 15lbs and in 6 month clothes! Please slow down growing!!
Another big change and the reason we are moving is, my husband is in the Army and just graduated with his Masters in Physician Assistant Studies (He takes the PANCE in two days and is studying 24/7). He is getting stationed at Joint Base Lewis/McCord in Washington.
However we have been told to expect him to deploy sometime shortly after we get there. For this reason we will be moving in with my parents in Oregon until he gets back. I am so thankful for this because it is really tough caring for a 4year old and a baby, along with running my own business. My parents are the best and are excited to help out.
Salato will be reopening the beginning of July, so only a few weeks away. Please feel free to follow us on Instagram to check out new products, hear news about the reopening, sales, and giveaways.
I can't wait to jump full steam head once my new studio is set up. Thanks for all your support!
Welcome to Salato Designs! Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out Salato Designs.
I am Katie the owner and designer of Salato Designs. I graduated with my major in Fashion Design from Hawaii. I lived in Hawaii for ten years. I met and married my husband there and we had our son Logan there. I also started Salato there.
Salato means Salty in Italian, I am part Italian and I find the ocean inspires and humbles me. I started Salato in Oct 2012 and from there Salato has grown more than I could have every expected. Yet no matter how much it grows every sale I get still feels like the the first one. I am truly so thankful for everyone who loves Salato as much as I do.
I have made so many friends through creating and running this business and a lot of them I have never met in person or even talked to on the phone yet the connection that we have through Salato is incredible! I love that my work is chosen to be apart of weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, gifts, and especially a gift to yourself.
I have always wanted a blog so that I could share more and truly connect even more with all of you. Thank you for joining me on this incredible journey, I can't wait to see what the rest of this year brings and how great it will be to have this blog to share with you all.
