Hi, I’m Karen, and I’m so glad you’re here!
I’ve been a Creative for as long as I can remember. It started with homemade toys and projects crafted with my grandmothers during my preschool years, and crochet lessons from one of them when I was 7.
Even from those tenderest years, I found so much joy and satisfaction in working with my hands.

During the years of babies and toddlers, I found it harder to fit creativity into my life and for the most part, put it on the back burner. When I did make time to do something creative, I was always amazed by how “recharging” it was. It refueled my spirit as I worked to serve my family.
Most of my projects during those years were simple – crocheting baby afghans for each of my kids, and sometimes for friends and family.
And it was during those long days/short years of life that I learned how important it is to make time for creativity and how to fit it into my busy life.
Now that my baby isn’t so much of a baby and I have more flexibility, I still use the same methods I learned over 20 years ago.
I love getting my hands into a creative project and I’m passionate about helping other Creatives find inspiration, encouragement, and practical ways to do the same.
