U-Create…can she?

posted on June 20, 2010 by  |  posted under Crafting  |  8 Comments

I am excited to share our HowDoesShe feature today!  I got to find out more about the mysterious blogger over at U-Create.  Kari’s blog offers trendy fresh tutorials on crafting.  She just redid her layout {{ It looks good Kari}}!

U CreateBUT… You know the phrase, “plumber’s pipes are always leaky”?  I wanted to find out if Kari was crafty.  Sure she posts amazing tutorials from other sites and digs through countless submissions to only show the best, but can she craft?

Over on her blog she has her top 10 posts this year that I had to dig through to find her crafting ability.  I got distracted so many times…it was hard to focus!

1. Clip Art Rails Tutorial

2. 2009 Tutorial Winners on Ucreate

3. Joel Dewberry Interview

4. Mosaic Artwork Tutorial

5. Trend Alert: Burlap!

6. Vinyl on Canvas

7. Embellished Headband Tutorial

8. T-Shirt Hat Tutorial

9. Create With Me!

10. Becky Higgins Interview

11. {{This is where she was going to put in Chore Chart for multiple kids from HowDoesShe, but I think she must have gotten distracted with the new Toy Story movie coming out}}

I also found out that she:

Knows what agyrocopter is and what it does!

Is a busy mom of 4.

Loves to be outside swimming, feeding ducks, going to parks, and camping with her family.

Is going through a ton of change right now: new home, new schools, new neighbors and friends.

Never watches T.V.

Is a huge Toy Story fan!

Can’t stand the smell or taste of cantaloupe. {{I ‘m glad we didn’t submit yesterday’s post to her!}}

Is a huge night owl!

I also found out how she finds fun post ideas:

80% of them come through tutorial submissions.

” I love tutorial submissions!”

She also checks her private blog rolls for ideas…all the time!

Some of the requirements to be featured?

1.  A high-quality photo!

“That’s one of the many things that draw me to How Does She? the photos are gorgeous on this site!” {{Kudos to Missy}}

2.  A tutorial that makes you say, “WOW!” or “Why didn’t I think of that?” out loud.

3.  Clear instructions and a complete supply list.

Oh, and what’s this I found? Could it be?

Back to the interview…

We like asking women their super power of choice and Kari said,

“I would be, ‘Time Control Woman!’ I would create more time in one day so that I could spend hours on end with my family traveling, having fun and just being together. I would also freeze time so that I could respond to every email and feature every fabulous tutorial submitted! I would speed up time and fast forward the crappy days or the moments when my kids are fighting!”

Wait, another find…

Are these baby bibs?

One last question to find out a little more.

What does she like most about U-Create?

Her very favorite thing about U-Create is bringing exposure to talented new craft bloggers or someone who is just getting started. {{that was us a few months ago!}}

She has met many amazing friends through craft blogging and is honored to call so many of them her friends!!

And then there is this picture that all lead to Kari’s Creations!I think the above links answers our question.  Is Kari really crafty?…YES!  She passes.  Not only does she have crafting ability, she knows how to find fun things!!!

Head over to U-Create and show her some comment love!

Thanks Kari, for letting us unwrap the U-Create blogger mystery and put the spotlight on you!!!
