Today I’m honored be chatting with all of you at Kim Thacker’s blog!
Kim and I knew each other a little bit from high school.
This year, she has started an “Inspired by….” series where she talks with people from different creative professions. Here’s how she describes it:
“I am inspired by or receive pleasure from so many lovely things in this world, many of which were introduced to me by friends. I hope to do the same for others, which is one of the major reasons why I review and recommend books on this website. I love talking books! But I have felt for a long time that I would like to share more of the things that I love—whether those things be beautiful places I’ve visited, paintings I’ve admired, or recipes that have made me curl up in a ball of sheer happiness.
A few months ago, I started planning how I was going to share the things that I love and that inspire me…but I didn’t get very far in my planning, because the idea started to feel kind of flat. After weeks of pondering, I decided that rather than posting pictures of things I adore (which had been my plan), I would spotlight the people who create those things. I would spotlight other individuals who work in creative, artistic fields.
“Inspired By” is an interview experience that began in January of 2012. In a nutshell, I get to interview creative artists of every variety, whose work is of the sort that inspires me, and I get to share these interviews with you!”
It was so good to have contact with her again (it’s been a long time!). Her questions for me made me think a lot, and I had tons of fun! So go over and see cute-as-a-button Kim! There are other great interviews you’ll love as well…….
