About the Blog

miseducated-kawaii-blog

I created this blog so that I can share amazing art, inspirations and designs that can be found everywhere today and embrace my slight, color-charged, whimsical and design-hungry insanity in a very public way. There is an abundance of inspiring people and places around the world to open our eyes to and a creative, aesthetically attractive life to embrace so we can live inspired and love our brand.

The History of Miseducated

Miseducated began in 1997 as a personal website by myself {then known as Cat*e; this is also the year I got kitten Hobbes and met my girl soulmate Kimikat ♥} covered in rainbows, candy and moon cats. In April of 2001 I bought the domain www.miseducated.net and proceeded to move my personal website there. In November of 2008 I finally updated and published some old articles I’d written and Miseducated was reborn as the whimsical blog and lifestyle brand you see today. In 2010, after much regret of not choosing to buy the .com {I seriously thought .net sounded better at the time} and many years of waiting, www.miseducated.com went up for auction and I was finally able to snag it at a fair price.

    1990s Miseducated

    The absolute beginning (click!) of my web and graphic design career. (Hahaha.) I’m finally showing you this because I want to show you that each and every person has to start somewhere and learn and grow — no one just rolls out of bed with the knowledge and talent they need to succeed in their desired field. Back then all of my graphics were either scanned Sanrio and Sailor Moon collectables or created first in MS Paint and then finally in Paint Shop Pro. The delicious marshmallow rainbow palette is by Kimikat of course. FYI, the non-smooth text makes me gag as well.
