Traci Kinerk



What is there to say really?  I’m a craft nerd, a computer nerd and very much an introvert.  I design websites (www.DesignerSitesKC.com) and plan events (www.DesignerEventsKC.com) for a living.  One of the best parts of my event planning job is making the decorations. I grew up with the ultimate DIYers,  aka, my mom and dad.  They always believed, and still do, that they can make it better than they can buy it.  My dad is a brilliant woodworker and has an amazing knowledge of plumbing, electrical work, and pretty much knows how to build or fix anything.  My mom has never said, “no, I can’t do that”, ever in her whole life, I’m pretty sure.  She is crazy crafty and we were always making and crafting stuff when I was growing up.  Needless to say, the need to “make stuff” is definitely in my genes.   Mass produced stuff is so generic and soulless.  It was with this belief that I decided to start Kwirky Life.  Hoping, in my humble, tiny little way, to help give the world a little more character!!!
