That fireplace is amazing! Thanks for sharing these pics, Nancy. Sometimes it is easy to forget that those in the spotlight are 'real' people too!


Oh wow!! All looks amazing! If only I loved closer, would love to do that class!!!


Oops, I meant lived not loved lol, though.... ah well better not continue that sentence....


Thank you for this beautiful insights! Ken is the most adorable crafter I have ever met, and his friendly personality is unique. Your homestory made him even more real to his fans. Hugs, Baerbel


What a wonderful day with great friends! Love the history that flows from Ken's home. So nice of you to share your day!


This inside view says it all - Ken is so talented and just a pure soul. His many ways of expressing himself are a special treat and we are so fortunate to have him back in Indiana. He shares the wonders of the world with all of us. He is a treasure!

So funny- I took similar pics the next day at Ken's. It was so nice meeting you all! Eileen

  • Bio
    A certified craft-a-holic, I began my crafting career at the age of 16 with tole painting at Maude’s Tole Shop in Webster Groves, MO. Since then I have taught tole painting, rubber stamping, cardmaking, layouts, Copic Markers and bookbinding (primarily at For Keeps Sake in St. Louis MO). Previously a member of both Graphic 45 Design Team 2011 and Simon Says Stamp & Show Design Team 2010-2011, my work has been featured as a guest designer on various blogs and in numerous publications including many Stampington issues. Timi Taylor and I plan and host various scrapbooking events (For Keeps Sake Events) in the Midwest area including Girlfriend Getaways, daytime crops and trips based on classes and scrapbook stores. In November 2014, I will continue teaching bookbinding techniques at The Checkered Cottage in Kirkwood MO as well as other workshops featuring Graphic 45 products.
