About Us


Kari UCreate bio
My name is Kari and...
I started U Create as a passion about 5 years ago when most people didn’t even know what the word “blog” meant. I wanted a place where I could bookmark ideas I found around the web, kind of like my own personal Pinterest because sadly there was no Pinterest a few short years back!

I am passionate about blogging and publishing creative projects.

I get asked “what is your favorite thing you’ve created?” quite a bit.

My answer to this question is constantly changing but here are a few of my very favorite creations…

Master Bedroom Reveal - many before and after pictures!

Houndstooth Quilt - my very first finished quilt!

DIY Activity Lego Box - made these for my nephews one year for Christmas! I became the favorite Aunt!

Peppermint and Snow Christmas Tree - my dream Christmas tree!
