Hi there, I am Karen Cook. I live near Richmond Virginia and love all the wonderful events and places Richmond has to offer. I love to take craft and take pictures. I am a graphic designer by trade, but feel I have the creativity gene and dabble at so many things from beading (my favorite) to wreath making. I love animals and we have 4 dogs and 3 cats living in semi-harmony right now. I starting blogging in 2011, but I am starting fresh with my Monomoo blog and am striving to make it what my readers and followers really want. I hope you enjoy my site.
