Hi, I’m Karin!

I’m a wife, girl mom of two, teacher and recovering perfectionist. Oh, and I absolutely love coffee shops!
I love writing, and that’s what Dear Diary is all about. Whether I’m creating products that help YOU write more, plan your life better or tell your own story, or whether I’m writing myself, Dear Diary is all about putting pen to paper. (Or, you know, fingers to keyboard!). Words really do have the power to change the world!
My latest project was designing the 2021 Everything Planner, a beautiful, fully functional planner for the new year.
The planner is also available in a digital format. This PDF can be used on a digital device or you can have it printed and bound yourself.  Check it out in my online store!
