Caitlin Baumberger is the owner, designer and artist behind Happy Tines, a design shop studio where her mission is to create art that makes you smile and feel happy. Her style is defined by her whimsical hand-drawn illustrations, her modern calligraphy details, and her use of bright and happy colors.

Caitlin first discovered her love of illustration while designing wedding invitations and illustrating custom wedding maps. Since then, her playful illustration style has evolved and can be found on stationery and gift products sold in her online shop and retail shops nationwide. You can also find Caitlin teaching live virtual lettering and illustration classes through SkillPop. She has a passion for teaching and has taught over 1,500 students her favorite tips and tricks to learn a new skill.

Caitlin lives in Apex, North Carolina with her husband, Ben, and their two young sons, Wesley (4) and Wyatt (1). She designs and packages her products from her 3rd floor home studio. When she isn’t creating, Caitlin stays busy as a boy mom by chasing her boys around the house, constructing robots with Legos, and going on outdoor bug explorations.

Work With Caitlin


Happy” comes from my desire to make others feel happy and special through my whimsical style of happy paper goods.

Tines” (not to be mistaken for “times”) comes from the two tines that come together at the tip of a calligraphy nib.
