At one time, Kari had a photography and video editing business. If you twist her arm just right, she will still take an occasional client. I, of course, think all of her work is stunningly beautiful. The majority of photos in my home were taken by her and are extra special because she took them. She has an amazing way of catching the perfect candid moment or of seeing a scene from an angle I never would have thought of.
So - when we decided to add a "photo" line to our cutting boards, trivets and serving trays, it made perfect sense to me that we use some of her work in the designs.
Well - (huff!) - trying to get photos from her was a lot like pulling teeth without the benefit of those wonderful floaty drugs! Sheesh! She is such a harsh critic of her work that I was lucky to get the small handful out of her that I did!
And guess what . . . if you were paying attention to the lead-in line, you know what comes next . . .
Her black and white photo of a weathervane is one of our very best sellers. Not to rub it in, but Big Sisters are so gosh darn SMART - and, of course, always RIGHT. Ahhhhh . . . . .
