Hi, I’m Kelly! In 2013 I started my own company offering freelance graphic design services. As much as I loved working with my clients, after I became a mom, deadlines and schedules were a lot more challenging than I had expected.

Art had always been a huge part of my life and I really began to miss creating and designing just for fun. This is what inspired me to create Pjs and Paint®. It is a place where I can create craft tutorials, design printable activities, party games, organizational tools and so much more!

Now, I am happy to say I am a full time blogger and content creator while still getting to stay home with my kids. It’s not always easy to balance but definitely worth it!

I went through a lot of ideas before settling on the name of this blog. The name Pjs and Paint® came from a combination of my background and love of fine arts and the fact that the majority of the time you will find me in pajamas.

Between being a staying at home/working at home mom, there’s not too much need to get dressed!

I truly love arts, crafts and design and I’m so excited that I now have the platform to share what I create with you!

So appreciate the work you put into providing the gift of free freezer inventory and pantry inventory sheets - efficient without lots of extra ink being used! Thanks for helping us in making life easier and more organized! Blessings!

Hi Kelly,

I got your website from Pinterest but wanted to say "Thank you!" for the free PDF downloads for the pint-sized cookie recipes. I'm a librarian and often our donations are all we have to work with, and I -just- so happen to have 24 pint-sized jars and a "Take and Make" program that we needed for December. Our Young Adults are going to love this sweet treat! Anyway, thank you for sharing such a cute (and delicious!) idea and free printables!

Happy Holidays! Anna :)

Hi Kelly! Thank you for providing the free PDFs for the bridal shower games and the bridal party proposal! I will be using light purple in my wedding decor and the PDFs will fit perfectly with it. I was wondering if you happen to have any groomsmen proposal PDFs? And wine labels using the purple floral by any chance?

Please let me know,

Hi Joselyn! I'm so happy you like the bridal shower games and proposals! I don't have anything for groomsmen or wine labels but I can definitely create them for you for an upcoming blog post! I'm going to email you now for more details!

Hi Kelly! I stumbled upon your page via Pinterest and I just wanted to say thank you for the free PDFs. I recently downloaded the ones for the babyshower as I’m expecting my first child very soon. My shower is On the 18th. I was wondering if you were planning to make more ? I really needed one. That said “Guest Book please sign”, or something along those lines. & Even a “Baby’s are sweet please take a treat.” Hope to hear from you! Ashleigh

Hey Ashleigh! I'm so glad you like the baby shower games! And congrats on the baby!! I can definitely make some signs for you. I'm going to email you now to get some more info. Let me know if you don't hear from me in a few mins! :)
