Now it is my privledge to introduce you a creative talent like none other, Kristine McKay. 

Founder of My Craft Channel Kristine McKay
My Craft Channel has been a personal mission years in the making.  Crafting has been an important part of my life for many years.  I was always creative, yet I never considered myself “crafty” until one day (many years ago), when my husband was in law school, a one year old, and another baby on the way.  the four walls of my home.  I had a one year old and had one on the way.  With no time or money, I remember feeling trapped within the four walls of my home. One day I discovered an old shelf.  I decided to try and paint it to match my living room.  When it was completed I found myself smiling every single time I looked at the wall.  Suddenly it dawned on me . . .  I did NOT live in a prison with four walls.  I was surrounded by a blank canvas just waiting to be discovered.  My life changed that day.  Crafting is a personal expression of creativity.  It has filled my life with so much joy, it’s my mission to share that with others.
    I am thrilled to be surrounded by such amazing talent on My Craft Channel.  I scoured the country and literally interviewed hundreds of women.  I feel like I have found the cream of the crop.  Each week I will interview a panel of industry experts from manufacturer’s,  retailers, designers, and bloggers.  We will explore a variety of topics and would love to hear your suggestions.




News, Paper, Scissors & Glue

New to My Craft Channel is News, Paper, Scissors & Glue hosted by Kristine McKay. Stop by each week where McKay will lead a lively discussion with industry insiders.  They will discuss hot industry news, new product releases, and managing the ever changing crafting market. We invite you to take a look behind the scenes with manufacturers, retailers, and top designers.  Find out their secret to success and how things work behind the scenes.

Bio
Kristine is a wife and mother to three busy children.  She has been involved in the craft industry for ten years, working in marketing, product development, design, and everything in between.  It was through her involvement with HSN and QVC, that she discovered her passion for the platform that television provides.
Kristine presently owns a video production company located in American Fork, Utah and stays busy as a guest and contributor for Studio 5, a Salt Lake City life & style morning show.  Kristine is also the spokesperson for Northridge Publishing, and just completed designing her first paper line with Echo Park Paper Company
You can keep up with Kristine at her website:  www.kmckaydesigns.com  or follower her on Facebook group page to see behind the scenes photos and info.
