Kallie's Interview

What do you feel excited about when you wake up in the morning?

I feel excited to get all the things I need to do done so I can create something, or film \ edit a YouTube video I've been looking forward to, or get outside.


What's your favorite food or drink?

 My favorite food is PASTA!! :)


Tell us about your dreams.

 I have many dreams because I am interested in so many fields, but when I zoom out and see the big picture, I really feel like my dream is to reach others & teach others my love of all things arts & crafts through an online platform.


Who inspires you?

 My amazing aunt Katy is my biggest source of inspiration because she has used her love of art and grown it and spread it to others with business, social media, everything. :)


What do you imagine when you think about your life in 5 years?

 I think about how what I'm pursuing right now will affect what I will be doing in the future, and mostly what comes to my mind is my YouTube channel. I imagine I'll be pursuing my career as an arts & crafts teacher, still making videos, maybe having a small business and a website.


If you could choose anywhere to travel to - where would it be? Why?

 I've always dreamed of visiting Austria. The country is soooo beautiful, with a huge color palette (heaven for an artist) and such a unique culture. (Also maybe to run up a green hill and sing Sound of Music songs ;) )


Do you have a favorite inspiring quote?

 I'm not sure this is really related to my dreams, but it perfectly outlines our family morals. I've always loved this one: "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken." - Oscar Wilde


Is there someone in your field whom you admire?

 I loove to watch and get inspiration from a sewing channel called Rosery Apparel. She is so sweet and makes the CUTEST things, it just makes me wanna go sew whenever I watch one of her videos. :)


Fill in the blank.... My favorite thing is____

Waking up on a Saturday morning, when the weather is beautiful, and all my neighbors can play, and we play outside all day, and the ice cream truck comes, and we get ice cream, and it's just the perfect day. :)

Thanks Kallie! We're so excited to support you in your big dreams!
