Craft Countdown with Sara Carns




I’m a stay at home mom to two fabulous girls in the Arizona desert that loves to create just about anything from altered art to last minute costumes for my kids!  My mother started my passion for crafting at a young age and I started going to rubber stamp conventions at nine years old; I haven’t stopped making handmade cards for friends and family ever since!  I am a writer and reviewer for Craft Test Dummies and recently became a Ranger Certified Instructor.

What 2 things are you not very good at.

Drawing and painting!  I’m horrible at faces, still-life, etc…


What 1 thing happened that made you realize you were a creative person, crafter or artist?

I’ve always had an urge or drive to create SOMETHING.  If I see a picture of something I want in a magazine or on tv my brain automatically goes into, “How can I do that?” mode.  I just can’t help it!  I’ve always been this way.
