always lived life outside of the box. At the tender age of three, Carrie's heart was changed, and her faith remains central to everything in her life. She married young, received a Bachelor of
Science degree in English, and spent four and a half years traveling the world
with her husband before settling down in the beautiful Appalachian
With a job that requires her to use social media on a daily basis, Carrie enjoys developing connections through Facebook and Twitter, but is also known for her regular "unplugging" as a sanity saver. A rookie photographer and a fan of ethnic foods, she's passionate about culture, travel, the Oxford comma, and Operation Christmas Child. Carrie believes that life is about far more than acquiring stuff – unless it’s more books.
In 2010, Carrie and her husband published Mashed Potatoes: A Little Brother Story under the pseudonym Graham Koens, which is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle formats. It was during her attempts to promote Little Brother that Carrie first began to understand the power of social media.
After her stint as a pharmacy technician, Carrie started looking for a job that was more in line with her God-given talents and college degree. In May 2012 she joined the freelance team at Weaving Influence as a Book Launch Director and Social Media Consultant.
About the Blog: Busy Nothings was started in November 2009 as a place where Carrie could write about her interests. These include - but aren't limited to: a growing obsession with real food and fancy tables, a passion for financial stewardship, intentional gratitude, and simplifying, a lifelong love of books and travel, and the occasional ode to all things pumpkin.
Over the years, Busy Nothings has provided Carrie with an outlet to share her faith, her struggles, and her successes. It has created opportunities to meet people around the globe, and has opened up doors of opportunities. Her heartfelt thanks to those who have been reading from the early days, and a huge welcome to those who are just joining up!
