Girl Boss: Katy Fults of Katy Girl Designs

Each month we will be interviewing incredible creative women who have decided to pursue the hard road of small business, no matter how big or small it may be.  They will share their personal experiences, trials, inspirations and advice. We hope you are inspired and encouraged to be your OWN version of a GIRL BOSS.

We're Back...

 It's my turn to tell you how excited we are to be relaunching our website, blog and shop.  After what seems like an eternity away, Melissa is back in the 901 as she calls it and we are gearing up to rock the creative community like only two paint girls from the 901 (lol) can do. 

When we started our business together we had no idea of the different opportunities and paths that our journey would take… These years have brought on so much change…some good, some bad …some really bad.. but oh soooooooo much WONDERFUL in the midst of it all!!!

Melissa and Bart came back home (my daddy said they would be back…he was always right) with TWO EXTRA tribe members… (Party of five for dinner now..YIKES!!! How she does it is beyond me). And my babies are growing up way too fast… oldest almost out of college (and has a real job... thats one of those wonderful things I mentioned) and the baby is in the ninth grade (I’m not quite sure if this is the good or bad..  but I'm hopeful and optimistic).  What I do know for sure is that time flies when you are having fun and God has blessed this friendship and family of ours so much more than we could have ever dreamed.


These are my people and I love them hard…

It's our hope that we can offer you some joy and blessings along this journey of ours. We guarantee there will be laughter, probably some tears and lots of crazy shenanigans… But most of all we are putting on our creative and hope you find joy along the way with us.   

Again, I want to thank you for taking the time out to follow our journey… My fellow 901 girl and I love to hear from you guys so please feel free to stop here sit a spell… Join us we would love to have you!    




Hey y'all and welcome to our new home!

Jaime and I are so excited, beyond excited, to be back together in our studio's again and running around the 901 faux finishing when we get the chance.  We've been spending a lot more time on our art and prints in the Etsy Shop.  We've even expanded into apparel with our original designs and hand lettering.  We also can't wait to introduce to even more new projects here in the very near future!

The last 6 years have been a wild ride for me as my family has moved several times and we are now finally back in our hometown of Memphis surrounded once again by our family!  While we were away, God showed us so many amazing things.  He gave us life-long friends that we will cherish forever.  And most importantly God gave us two more miracles, our middle boy and baby boy (eight months a part) while in Houston.

2016 has been a quite the year for me.  The beginning of this year I discovered I had thyroid cancer.  After two surgeries and finally the appropriate treatment I am now cancer free and on the road to getting healthier and healthier.  With our oldest in second grade and the babies in mother's day out once a week, Jaime and I are back to doing what we do best... creating!

Our new website will be a place that anyone can come and find inspiration, encouragement, and just have some fun.  Whats different this go round is our blog is now connected to our website.  Many of you may have followed my personal blog of 5 years, Midwest Magnolia, where I shared my story with infertility and adoption.  The time came to phase that out and now that we are back home I can now put some of my focus back into Off The Wall Home!

Take a look around the new digs and let us know what you think.  If you like behind the scenes videos, sneak peeks, tutorials and DIY'S, and even FREE stuff like downloadable print's and coloring pages than you will definitely want to click on the Subscribe Button and sign up for our Monthly Happy Emails!

We are so excited to be back in the same location and collaborating and working together again!  And even more excited to see where God takes us from here.  We hope you'll join us on our always crazy and wild journey.
