Pre-Order The Escape Manual for Introverts

I have something exciting to share! 🎉My third book, THE ESCAPE MANUAL FOR INTROVERTS, is coming August 6th from Andrews McMeel Publishing and you can pre-order it now!

Katie Vaz | Illustrator and Author

A blend of humor and inspiration, THE ESCAPE MANUAL FOR INTROVERTS is a funny, sometimes absurd guide to escaping the painfully awkward situations of everyday life as an introvert. The book guides readers through a range of social scenarios that introverts dread, such as being trapped on an airplane with a chatterbox or hosting a dinner party with people who just won’t leave, and offers escapes and tips for each situation. From the silly to the sincere, these clever, hilarious escape plans and bizarre excuses speak to the introvert in all of us.

I'm really excited about this book because being an introvert is something that I think really defines me and has my whole life. I enjoyed so much getting to create a funny book about my interpretation of the introvert experience. 😃

Mother's Day Cards

Mother's Day is just around the corner. Take a peek below at the new cards I released this year in my shop. 

All cards are available in my Etsy shop here. If you are local, you can find these at Riverow Bookshop in Owego and Amuse: Modern Cottage Industry in Ithaca.

New Valentine's Day Cards!

Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday to design cards for! I just added a few new designs to my greeting card line, and you can see them in my shop here. I'm so pleased with how these new cards turned out and I'm very excited to share them with you!

I have such a hard time talking about my feelings and expressing myself vocally, so I prefer to write down what I feel instead. Usually, the things I want to say to people I care about end up being perfect for greeting cards, especially for this holiday.

Also, I just love this time of year when everything is pink and red and sparkly and chocolatey!

Free Christmas Card to Color at Home

For my last freebie in my Don't Worry, Eat Cake holiday giveaways, I've created a Christmas card for you to print and color at home! 

The border illustration from this card is from one of my favorite pages in my coloring book, and I just love how the lush floral frame works with a Christmas saying. I love winter decorations that are full of rustic greenery. It makes me want to hide away in a cozy cabin all winter long.

You can download the PDF here. Print on heavy cardstock paper, cut and fold, then color in with your favorite materials. I also added in a hint of glitter to the centers of the flowers. Now I'm in the mood to put glitter on everything.
