So, my niece Annie (who is a wonderful photographer and has a very cool blog with her work,  http://anniedennisphotography.blogspot) has sent me this award. Part of the deal is I have to tell you seven little known things about myself. Hummm, right off the top of my head:

1. I like watching HGTV, especially House Hunters International. So many cool places out there in the world!
2. I got married 24 years ago in Dawson City, Canada. Just my husband Robert and our dog Max, standing in the Justice of Peaces back yard with some blackjack dealers as our witnesses.
3. I have a best friend who I've known since the 6th grade. Susan Anniskett, she is a beader extraordinaire She lives in Florida now so we talk on the phone.
4. I had an outhouse until my 50th birthday, yea flush toilets!
5. When I was a kid I did a cartoon strip, Bug Boy,  and I wanted to be a cartoonist.

6. Left my parents in Connecticut and went to live in Juneau Alaska with my 19 year old sister when I was 15.
7. I love Alaska but if I was rich I would probably live in Hawaii, I just love swimming in a warm ocean!
So now I have to pass the award on and I am sending it to Kid Lit North. I love keeping up with Ann Dixon's  information on books and all things related.


  1. How cool! now we get to know a little more about you!! I'll have to check out the sites you mentioned in your post! I'm SO far behind in reading blogs!!

  2. Hi Kate, Char here. Jack and I just browsed through your fabulous work. I don't want to sound silly, but it made me cry. You do such fantastic work Kate, I am in such awe of what you do. Your designs are just out of this world. We drove to Soldotna Wednesday and I saw you at your bead table working away. I wanted to stop in on our way back, but we didn't make it before you closed. I hope to stop in this summer. Sorry I missed your last class at Gig's, I had to work. I so enjoy beading with you. You are the best!!! Happy Spring!
