I’m Kara.  I love to dance in my car, smuggle candy into my house, and play secret spy games with my children.  I also love to sew–which is probably why you are here.

In 2012, I was teaching 4th grade when I became pregnant with my first son. I gave birth to him just 2 weeks after the school year ended.

Babies sleep a lot.  Which meant, I went from chasing and managing 4th graders all day to sitting in my house trying to figure out what to do while my baby was sleeping.  One day on Pinterest, I came across a refashion, and I thought to myself, “I could do that!”  And so my blog began, with the first post sharing how I turned my husband’s polos into a skirt.  The name of my blog was called, “While Camden Sleeps,” since I was documenting the crafts I did while my baby, Camden, was sleeping.

Camden is almost 7 now, and he doesn’t EVER nap anymore. My life has changed, so it felt right for the blog name to change as well, and in July of 2018, “While Camden Sleeps” became “Kara Metta”  after my first and middle names.

I currently reside in Utah with my husband and three sons ages 1, 4, and 6.
