A tiny traveler wandering the PNW and sharing my love for oils.



Welcome! I’m glad you’re here. 

Truth be told, I wish I had started Travel & Tinker years ago. By 28 I had been to all 50 states and by 30 I had been to eight countries but I hadn’t really documented any of it. I have a few instagram posts, some foggy memories and a handful of trinkets from my very favorite places, but very few specific memories.

These days I do a little bit less traveling and bit more tinkering. I guess that is what homeownership will do to you. Moving forward I hope to use this space as a place to help me remember the big and small moments in life that are so precious as we get older. I’m excited to share those moments with you!

You can expect to hear from me about finding the perfect gift, hiking, happy hours and DIY projects that involve my favorite Young Living essential oils.

I hope that you’ll find some inspiration here. 


Yours Truly

Hey, I’m Katie! A Pacific Northwest native that currently calls Tacoma, Washington home. I enjoy starting projects on my 1910 home (and rarely finishing them), trying new Pinterest recipes, and loving on a very handsome goldendoodle. On the weekends you will find me cheering on the WSU Cougars, taking in the outdoors, reading a good book, scouring yard sales or enjoying a cold beer. 

Please feel free to shoot me an email or connect on social media. I look forward to hearing from you!
