WELCOME to Kara Creates

Where Creative Magic Happens!

Hi, I’m Kara and we’re so happy you are here to create with us.

I started Kara Creates in 2009 to help pass the time while my hubby was deployed.  I really had no idea what I was doing. I just wanted to share my creations with others and inspire people to create fun things.  Who knew I would learn so much and make such great friends along the way?!

The heart of this blog is centered around delicious recipes that you will want to make again and again, craft projects that will bring you joy, and freebies that will add a pop of fun to your days.

My goal with Kara Creates is to share crafts and recipes that don’t require a lot of supplies and ingredients. I love teaching and realize that my blog is an extension to that. 

I hope that my tutorials are easy to follow and will encourage everyone to create something they love. You’ll find crafts, DIY projects, printables, games, recipes and so much more here on Kara Creates.

you can’t use up
creativity. the more you
have, the more you use.

A Little About Me

  • I’m rocking the boy mom life with my two sons.
  • My husband just retired from the U.S. Navy. We lived in Virginia Beach for 22 years and recently moved home to Maryland.
  • I’m a middle school ELA teacher. I currently teach 7th and 8th grade and I have the best students.
  • I’m a perfectionist. I’m also a huge procrastinator.
  • I love listening to true crime podcasts and watching true crime documentaries.
  • A perfect afternoon for me is getting coffee from Starbucks and shopping at Target and Home Goods.
  • I’m happiest when I’m with my family and when I’m creating things!
