Heart Handmade Interviews…

March 3, 2009

My husband! Wow! Tee just told me that Marichelle from the Heart Handmade blog interviewed him in her “other half” series, a column she writes to highlight the significant others behind the bloggers out there. I love the column idea and am so pleased to see that Thorsten participated. I really loved reading his answers to some of her questions, like how we met, how he supports me with blogging, 5 random things about him, etc.

Heart Handmade Interviews...

This is by far the sweetest interview ever, thank you Tee and Marichelle!

    Ah! Thorsten is your husband?! He just offered me major, major IT-like help this weekend via Twitter. He’s awesome. I should have known!

    hello holly,
    what a conicidence! i was browsing at etsy today and i noticed the etsy feature of marichelle before. but today i checked her shop and looked at her blogs and i found this one too. and i thought about letting you know, because i didnt checked your side-it is always the last one, cause its my favourite;-)- and here we are. this is so, so cute. so good to see, that there are people who encourage each other and his love for you shines through every word he said.

    This is such a sweet interview. I first heard about your blog through Dawanda when I downloaded your presentation about blogging at the Berlin event. My ears perked up when I heard that you too were an American living in Germany (sometimes), and married to a German man that you had met on the internet. I guess that would make two of us who share the same story. I love stories about husband and wife duos/teams (your story, Amy Butler, and others) because that is how my husband and I also work, which I have playfully named him my “partner in crime”. I do the creative side and my patient and supportive husband does all the German side that I cannot do yet. But for me it has always been my dream and secret desire to have that kind of support. Again lovely interview and Grüße aus Hamburg.

    What a lovely interview Holly. Sounds like you found a real gem there! I am so envious (in the nicest possible way). You seem like such an awesome person that I am so happy you have found someone who appreciates and admires you. I think we all deserve to be adored – you especially!
