Welcome! This space is for my creative projects and other things I think are worth sharing. A curio cabinet, if you will. Kara’s collection of oddities, pretty rocks, and feathers.
I’ve tried to create categories and labels that will make it easier to find what it is that you are looking for, but I must warn you that some of the scraps and bits around here are shoved into drawers and stacked in corners. You might have to do a little digging. (I’m working on that, but I’m making no promises about speed or accuracy.)
Who is Kara?
My name is Kara. I have a crooked smile and several bad habits.
Four call me “mama” and one calls me “wife.” This is my 47th trip around the sun.
I’m not much of a talker but I do have a love affair with writing things down, filtering my views, leaning in for a closer look.
I crave hand knit socks, tall book stacks, grocery store bouquets, and turning the music up too loud. I ignore bedtime, the dishes, and most expectations.
I like bright colors and clean lines and messy desks and turning all the lights out at the end of a long day.
I have been reinventing myself in these virtual spaces for almost 20 years, trying on new dress after new dress. This one fits me best.
Some of you have been with me for a long time. That is humbling.
Some of you are brand new and I’m thankful that I get to welcome you.
Some know my story. Some are strangers.
I’m glad I’m still here.
I’m glad you’re still here, too.
I hope you find beauty, a tiny joy that you can tuck away with you until you stumble upon this space again. Be brave. Be kind. Keep going.
