A chronicle of the meanderings, false starts (which in retrospect, while sort of embarrassing turned out to be highly instructive), epiphanies, selective apathy (still evolving), wild mood swings, opinions (subject to frequent change), and life lessons of an inveterate dabbler (and her latest dabblings).

I've Been Featured!

I'm the featured artist today at Notes from the Handmade Highway! Check out my interview where I bare my soul and share the secrets of my success. I mean my secret success. The secrets of my secret success. It's so secret even I don't know about it.

Notes from the Handmade Highway is a blog developed by Lori (sorry Lori--I don't know your last name!) of Risky Beads, devoted to showcasing various handmade artisans around the globe, and providing a venue for buyers, artisans and fans of handmade to find each other. The blog includes a directory of artisans, with special notes about who does wholesale, who does custom, who wants to do giveaways, etc. Lori regularly posts interviews of new artisans so the Highway's followers can get to know them. Today was my turn! Thanks Lori! (I'm a big fan of Risky Beads--LOVE the Three Bean Salad Bracelet. I was doing the groupie thing today getting all happy when I got a convo from RISKY BEADS!!!) Check it out and hitch a ride!

I just love the spotlight.


  1. Congrats on your feature! Loved the interview.
    Hey, I was a legal secretary for 15 years. I had to get out; I couldn't handle the stress.

  2. I read your great interview...so your success is no longer secret (not that it was!)!!! I love the way you describe yourself as "freakishly young" looking...can I use that line too? :-) Congrats on being featured!

  3. congraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaats!!! i've read your interview!! you are so funny!!!

  4. BRAVO Keirsten, this interview is really interesting. Thank you to share with us some of your little (non) secret secrets. The pictures in it are gorgeous.


  5. Just read your interview and you've got me laughing as usual. Thanks for all the helpful hints on selling and it's good to know that Etsy showcases don't work and I can stop spending $ on them.
