I really enjoyed this interview.

Kathryn is a maker, a doer and a go-getter.

She’s the kind of person who makes you believe in the possibility of all the things – AND lets you know that you’re the only one holding yourself back.

We talk about how she got started – where she worked for 30 years and why she finally made the jump to solo-preneurship and how she made that happen successfully.

Kathryn is insight-rich and gave me really meaty answers to my queries on her “whys” of business and art-making and especially what she would tell her earlier self.

I hope you enjoy the podcast as much as I did making it.

Kathryn will be at The Handmade Market in St. Catharines this weekend, if you’re in the area – please check it out.

You can find Kathryn on Instagram and at Carnival of Kitsch.

You can crack the spines to lay them flat and you can paint from edge to edge and right into the gutter and not totally destroy them. <3 – Posted using
