Friday Featured BlogCrusher: Kara-Noel from Eli's Lids

BC: What's are the name of your blogs

Eli’s Lids
She’s Crafty OC

BC: When and why did you start blogging?

August 2007, purely as free marketing for my business, Eli’s Lids. I started posting more and using my blog as a creative outlet exactly a year later in August 2008. I had no clue I would fall head over heels for the whole blogging community!!

BC: What has been your biggest surprise about blogging?

A huge surprise has been the genuine friendships forged through blogging. I have loved meeting bloggers in person through BlogCrush! Oh, and getting recognized at McDonalds was a huge surprise!! I love my readers!!

BC: Where do you go for inspiration?

Eli’s Lids did start solely as a business blog so much of my inspiration is from the biz… but my perspective, my family, my faith and my hobbies now play a huge role in my posts as well. I’ve found, if I’m constantly thinking about some event or something really sparks strong emotion (positive or negative) in me, those make great posts!

BC: When you have out-of-town guests, what is your "must see" place in OC?

Lunch in/around the Orange Circle AND a full day at the beach complete with a bonfire in the evening!

BC: Give us the links to your three favorite posts you've ever written.

All of them. REALLY! When I feel glum I just go back and read my blog (I recommend blogging for so many reasons, but a blog being an instant pick-me-up is at the top of the list). If I have to pick only three… Crash = New Car & Back Aches, Our whole “Moving Saga” and Perspective.


  1. She is all unicorns, rainbows and cupcakes. And I love that.

  2. Kara is one of my all time favorite bloggers! It's always a treat to read her posts. Thanks so much for the feature on her. Lidy

  3. I love reading your blog! Everyone loves you and your lids. How could they not?!
