Hi! My name is Kari (rhymes with starry). I live in a fixer-upper in Austin, Texas with my husband, and a cat named Boo, raccoons, opossums, and owls. My blog will be about writing, storms, teapots and wolves, fabric-paper art, greeting cards, children's picture books, and the deep dark woods of my imagination. I taught first, second, and third graders, and our favorite time of day was always story time. Welcome to the story of my little world!
