Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Everytime I see these cards, I remember that I really need to get started on some Christmas creations or I'm going to be in the same bind that I was in last year and just say 'to heck with it' again =) Beautiful job, Karin! Your sponging is fabulous!

Hello Karin, what a beautiful card you have designed. Love the shading you did. I am envious of people who can do that. I've tried and it's just awful!!

I love the story about your name. My sister Karin had/has the same issue.
