About Kim

Kim Stoegbauer is the creative director + founder of The TomKat Studio, a blog and shop filled with creative inspiration. After leaving her real estate career in 2008, she started her blog on a whim, to share her creative projects including home decorating, remodeling, crafts and parties. She came up with the name “TomKat” by combining her children’s names, Tommy + Kate. A few months later, Kim shared Kate’s 2nd birthday party on the blog and the demand for sharing her creativity soared. She opened an Etsy shop selling party packages including invitations, cupcake toppers, banners + more. The demand continued to grow and few months later, unable to keep up, she went digital with her designs. It helped her balance her time and her customers love the concept. Her styling and design work caught the eye of major brands like HGTV and Pottery Barn Kids and turned into incredible photo styling partnership opportunities. Kim’s styling work has been featured by Martha Stewart, HGTV, DIY Network, Pottery Barn Kids, Coca-Cola, Barbie, Shutterfly, Vera Bradley and many more. Her work has also been featured in publications such as Parenting Magazine, Celebrate Magazine, Where Women Create and InStyle Magazine. Kim has completed professional media training and has participated in satellite media tours on behalf of the brands she works with. 


Kim loves pink, ruffles and all things pretty. She is a perfectionist, night owl and a teeny bopper at heart. She loves all sweets {especially chocolate}, the Twilight series and is still a big fan of New Kids on the Block. Kim lives in Chandler, Arizona with her wonderful husband, Danny, their two sweet children Tommy (9) & Kate (8) and their chihuahua, Bentlie.
