The Graphics Fairy

I'm Karen, aka The Graphics Fairy. I am a full time blogger, wife, mom (to 4 grown kids) and 1 adorable Corgi! I started my Graphics Fairy blog in 2007, in order to share my love of vintage paper with creative people all over the world.  I also post about crafting, decorating and improving my home, as well as project tutorials that my readers can make themselves.  I frequently feature my reader's crafty projects and I offer printables too. I strive to created a community atmosphere on my blog, where we can all share, inspire and learn from each other. I've been so blessed to have received mentions in many fine magazines all over the world, including Woman's Day, Country Living, Family Circle, BHG Halloween Issue, Romantic Homes, Somerset Studio Gallery, We Love Living (Germany) and many more!  Most of my readers are women, the majority of them are moms, and they are a fabulously creative bunch that are quite passionate about their homes and families. I post every day, so that my readers always have something new look forward to.
