It then blossomed into booking craft shows and before you knew it I was in a full fledged home-based business. I went from "Karen's Kountry Krafts" in 1984 to "Country Side Gift Shoppe in 1990 to KeepsakesForever 1991! My husband has been a very intregal part of this whole process.

My husband and I have been working together for 27+ years and believe it or not, we enjoy working, creating and entrepreneuring together! We have 7 children and 2 grandchildren! We feel so blessed that God has given us this ability to be on our acreage, have this business, raise a family and still make it! I hope you enjoy our product knowing that it is NOT from China, but made with sweat and hard work right here in the Dakotas.

I love painting, I love making something out of nothing, I love re-vamping a piece of old furniture to make it functional...but mostly,I love making people happy and putting a smile on their face. Our life is full of joy and happiness and each day we choose to be a blessing to others! We hope you have a great day and have enjoyed our keepsakesforever~God Bless you!
