About Karen

Hi there, welcome to flour+hand. My name is Karen Brown, I’m 54, married with two teenage daughters. I live in Days Bay, a small sea-side community near Wellington city, the capital of New Zealand. The things I most enjoy in life are: my family and pets, cooking; especially baking. Paper-crafting and calligraphy, drawing and stamping. I love to decorate my home, and am constantly changing my collections around. Ah, collecting– there’s butterflies and beetles and birds. There are jelly molds, cookie cutters, and cake stands. And books. Lots and lots of books. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy this window to my home, Cheers Karen

    Im so fortunate to be the lucky granny to have you as a d-in-law Karen. It was an amazing tower, and all the rest of the food got rave review from all my friends. Great to have such a wonderfully creative person in the family. Love, Nola.
