Marnie Karger's Profile

About

About Me:

My name is Marnie (named after the Hitchcock film), and I live in lovely Shorewood, Minnesota, just west of the Twin Cities. Before joining Etsy, I taught high school English for eight years.

I have enjoyed working with my hands since I was just a squirt. My "crafting area" grew from a decorated cardboard box to my own craft room. Now I have two squirts of my own, a corner of the basement overflowing with crafty supplies, and a patient hubby who lets me make things.

I blog about shop-related topics and crafty things here:

About the shop:

Choosing a name for my shop was like choosing an image for a tattoo -- I wanted it to be meaningful, easily recognizable, and something that represented what I do. Since I have a pull towards all things crafty, I created a name that alludes to multiple media, purpose, and price. In a nutshell, I hope to create items that appeal to a diverse group of people who share one common trait: the appreciation of handmade works.

I've started with my most familiar territory: paper. I like to fold it, cut it, and share it. In the near future, I hope to also offer fabric pieces and sketches as well.

Some of my favorite "things" include: trees, the color blue, being "green," retired racing greyhounds, comfortable shoes, Ted Kooser poetry, hanging clothes on the line outside, and singing in the car.
