Karen Kelly Profile image, owner of Lovilee Blog and The Tiny Dollhouse SA

I am a creative at heart that loves pretty things and sharing pretty things with others. Even thought I have a BSc in Mathematical Sciences from RAU (now UJ) and a background working in corporate, I have always loved to create. I am so privileged to be able to run lovilee and share what interests me with others. I believe that if you do what you love you will love what you do!

I had been contemplating starting a blog for a while before actually taking the leap. I was looking for a creative outlet where I could inspire others and share my ideas and finds with others. My own wedding involved lots of DIY’ing and our new home was a blank canvas for my decor ideas – The lovilee blog became a place where I shared these ideas and later the projects.

I’ve had so many great experiences in my blogging career and have met even more lovilees! I have a great family, friends, a team of guest bloggers and photographers that support me and make lovilee happen, without them I would not have come where I am today!

Thank you so much for sharing in my dreams! I invite you to become a part of our ever-growing community of creative enthusiasts.

PS: Thank you to Melanie Wessels for my amazing profile images! Ooo, and also have a look at my tiny online store – The Tiny Dollhouse South Africa.
