The Ultimate Blog Party 2013 is here!

Welcome to the party! This is my third year participating in The Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5minutesformom! It's so much fun! This is also my third year sponsoring a prize. Keep reading for more info!



A Little About Me


*Cheers!*


Welcome! I'm so glad you could make it! My name is Samantha, and I've been blogging for about 4 years now.
I love blogging because it's a great way to connect with others, to express myself,
and share my interests.


I live in southern Maine with my hunni, Scott, (it'll be 7 years in Sept!) and my little dog, Jake (who is also 7)
I love my boys!



Welcome to KreativeKaring!

I've enjoyed blogging about: child carephotography, sales, saving money, donating, Things I kare about, sharing things I think others will want to see, how to have a less stressful holiday, how to get free samples and deals, etc. This is totally an ADHD eclectic blog!






Here's some of my photography work:





What do I do when I'm not blogging?

I blog between 3 jobs. I am an activity aide for a nursing home, I provide child care in the mornings, and clean houses for myself on the side. I also love to listen to music, sharing great deals I find, and helping others when I can, and plenty more. See why I couldn't just write a blog about one thing?





Where you can find me:


Recently I started a group on Facebook to let others know when there are freebies and samples that go quickly. I post freebies and deals on there more often than on my blog. I encourage you to join!

You can also look for me here:

    1. Well that makes me feel better! Did you know that when I first started blogging I was told by several bloggers that there was too much going on in my blog and that I should narrow it down and talk about only a couple things? How do people keep finding new things to write about if they are only supposed to be writing about a couple subjects? I just couldn't do that. I'd rather take the chance of having a "busy" blog. After all, a blog is supposed to represent the blogger, right?
      Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Hi, Samantha. Kreative Karing is so beautiful! You must really have an eye for subtle beauty.

    May I ask, what kind of childcare do you do?

    1. Well at the moment I provide before care for a child in the next town from 5-8am. But I've done all sorts since I thought I wanted to run a day care when I grew up. lol Until I realized what that actually entailed. hehe
      Thanks so much for the compliment. I try to find beauty in every thing - because sometimes that alone can be a challenge. =)

    1. Thanks for stopping by. 3 jobs is a lot but I have certain jobs on certain days to make it easier and less stressful, and I try not to plan anything on the weekends and save them just for relaxing. lol
      Photography is fun and what's great about it is that there are soo many different directions you can take it. I'm currently teaching myself more about the digital backgrounds. =)

    1. lol I'm catching up too. It looks like you might be way ahead of me though. hehe
      I try to keep busy.. sort off. It's a good and bad thing. A lot of times I get a lot done, but when it's time to sit down I have a hard time making my mind stop. lmao
      I'm sure I have a lot of people agree with me when I say that it's not so easy to relax even though you're sitting down, right?
