About

Black and white image of woman smiling
Hi there! I’m, Kristin Baird, the maker/designer behind Hey Kitty Rae, and I am a one woman studio. In addition to a Bachelor Degree in Interior Design, I have been a maker since I was a child. Designing and creating are my passions as well as exploring different mediums and techniques. This handmade doll shop started as an outlet for my creativity, but grew into a passion for combining fabrics, patterns and colors that evoke feelings of nostalgia, joy and love.
For more detail on my journey to doll making, check out this blog post.
