Kara Haput, I just Might Explode // GIVEAWAY


Meet Kara.  I love love love her blog and shop.  I think I first stumbled across Kara's blog I just Might Explode a year or two ago.  I remember seeing the design and thinking, dang she has skills.  Then I checked out all of the classes that she has created and thought, wow this girl is so creative and innovative!  And then on top of all of that I realized that she was still in high school!  Wow, she just blew me away and has continued to do so ever since.  She is now 19 and still more talented and wise than most girls her age.  I really admire this lady.  Having just finished her freshman year of college, I can't even imagine the ways she will be effecting the world once she graduates!


Hi! My name is Kara Haupt and I'm a 19 year old photographer, business owner, and blogger from Boise, Idaho. I just finished up my freshman year of attending art school in NYC and am currently living in my hometown for the summer and fall semester. I'm spending these glorious summer days blogging, going on adventures, and drinking more coffee than I ever thought possible.


About three weeks ago I decided to make my bedroom more grownup, but ended up painting my desk bright pink, so you could say I'm taking a more organic approach to growing up. I love Gilligan's Island, Meryl Streep, and hashbrowns.

G I V E A W A Y !
