Designer Kai Joldeski contacted me after she discovered my article on fascinators. We have much in common – she, a designer of fascinators and me, an admirer

Kai lives in Melbourne, Australia and is a self-taught artist who sells her wares on ETSY. She says she doesn’t feel complete if she hasn’t created something every day.

In addition to making fascinators, Kai is back at university studying Internet Communications. She agreed to do a little Q&A for just for you, readers.

  1. I can’t believe you are cro. What are you going to surprise me with next? When are you coming to jimmy’s. I forgot. Leslie will graduate in 2 weeks. She got a job as assistant teacher for special Ed. Start on Jan 6. That is great. Lots of kids have a hard time getting a job.

  2. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the
    message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.

    An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
