Kait is thrilled to join the DC Card Collective, and to help promote folks staying home and keeping in touch. Here’s what she’s up to during the quarantine.

  1. Connecting with friends and family 

I’m so thankful that I’m still able to stay closely connected with loved ones during these isolating times. I’m certainly on the phone much more than I was before, especially on video calls! However, my favorite way to keep in touch is to write cards!

  1. Creating Zoom backgrounds

Since all of our meetings, gatherings, dates, and hangouts are taking place virtually, why not make them more interesting with virtual backgrounds?!

  1. Becoming a plant mom

I went from having one plant to curating a small jungle in my apartment! This is the perfect time to spend caring for a plant family.

  1. Bingeing older series

I’ve been catching up on all the stories I never got to regularly watch when they were actually on cable. My current obsessions are One Tree Hill and Nip/Tuck.

  1. Organizing

My fiance and I share our spare bedroom as a multipurpose room. Currently, it’s serving as his music recording studio, a work from home office space, product storage, and my design space. I cannot stress how important it is for a multi-hyphenate room to stay organized!
