I am...

Borrowing from one of my favorite favorite quarterly magazines:  Where Women Create --- I will answer their exquisite questions.  Try them for yourself.

How old would you be if you did not know how old you were?
     I think I would be 7 years old.  I know it sounds silly, but I've thought about this before.  I think that the child in each of us is always there -- I know that quiet little Kari, mom's shadow, little sister to Randi & Lori is there in me always.

What do you want you think you cannot have?
     I don't know if I can ever ever be totally totally content or absolutely self-confident. 

What is your favorite place in all the world?
     Hands down, I am a home body......home is where my heart is.  (Although I do love a multi-dealer antique mall too.)

What can you not go a single day without?
     Sweet grace.  To me that is kindness, no expectations, pure humility.  It is actually best found in my animals...it is what I aspire to be when I grow up.

What is your guiltiest pleasure?
     Popcorn, couch, feather quilt, t.v. remote in my hand...watching HGTV, the Food Network or HBO.  (Sometimes I can even be caught watching "Toddlers & Tiaras" or "Say Yes to the Dress".)

What is more than a gift?
     Unconditional love.  At the end of the day, when someone or something loves you so much that they forgive all your inadequacies -- that is it, the best of it all.

It all started when?
     For me, hmmmm -- I think I am still waiting for the start line.

What inspires you to create?
     I don't consider myself creative -- but I do love me a room, a bunch of vintage goodies and an idea in my head.  I won't come up for air for hours.

What is the art in your every day?
     My home is my canvas -- as is our farm.  I feel like I am living in this wonderful dollhouse.

The endless hours you spend creating are made better only by?
     I really do love sharing what I have created --and I will admit, a "wow" or "look at that" makes me feel pretty dang good.  Once I have made a little vignette or alter, I love to catch glances at all the wonderfulness of it too. 

Who inspires you most to be better than you are?
     Family -- my peeps -- they forgive my foibles and accept me for who I am. 

What color is imagination?
   I am certain it is GREEN! 

What do you pack to pursue your dreams and what do you leave behind?
     I don't pack light -- wish I could, admire those who can.  I love my stuff -- all my sweet finds...each makes me smile.  Sometimes I think "If I could only keep 10 items for each holiday --what would they be?"  But then I change the question to 15 items, then 20 items.....nope, I don't pack light.

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
     Now, don't laugh -- I would be a State Senator (I'll let you guess the political party).  I just know I am not thick skinned enough to do that job -- but would love to be a part of debating for a more perfect world for all.  I am a political geek, and count the times I have sat in the Gallery of the House & Senate Chambers in D.C. watching the political wrangling as really awesome.  And that is likely the last political thing you will read on this blog....
