About Stelie Designs
My name is Stephanie Giesen-Kath. I'm a wife, mom to 2 sets of twins and the designer + owner of Stelie Designs. I grew up drawing! Drawing formal gowns, bridesmaids dresses, doodles, and mostly designing house plans. In high school, my plan for the future after having kids was to have my own business designing & building homes while working from home. In college, I started in architecture then switched to retail. After college, I worked with an Architecture Firm designing various retail + restaurant interiors. [It was the best experience working with Presidents + CEO's of companies all over the world] I worked a gazillion hours and after 3 years, was craving a life. So I switched to working with a large retail corporation planning/designing store interiors. After the birth of my first set of twins, my perspective changed and I was aching to work from home and spend more time with my kids. Five years ago, I left my retail design career to stay home full-time with my kids and to grow my business and have never looked back. I started doing retail design consulting along with my stationery business, however, my invitation business grew faster than planned and leaves little time for anything else + working with engaged couples is my favorite! Raising 4 kids while working from home is challenging and everyday is different. I fit in what I can when I can and live on little sleep and lots of caffeine! If you follow your passion work isn't work!
