My name is Karen Grunberg, but I generally go by Karenika online. I was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey but now live in Northern California with my wonderful husband, Jake and two amazing boys David and Nathaniel. I work as a Technical Program Manager at Google, on our browser, Google Chrome. Besides scrapping, I spend most of my free time reading, drawing, art journaling, hugging my family, and writing on my blog.
My favorite layout is the one titled "i love and adore you forever" because it has both my boys on it and I love the photos, and I love the journaling because it's personal to me and I love that I used some paint on my page which is rare for me.
My word for 2011 is free so I have this little bird which sits on a nest outside the birdcage to always remind me of my word.
The four of us: We are doing this project during 2011 where we take a full family photo each weekend day. We take some normal shots and then we do "tickle time" where we just all tickle each other. I love love love the photos that come out of it because you can see the joy in our faces.
