3G2S Family Photo - June 2010
Welcome! My name is Karen . . . founder, author, and editor of 3 Garnets & 2 Sapphires. This blog is named after all the gems in our little family . . . my husband Todd and I are the sapphires and our 3 January babies Jake, Makenzie, and Luke are the garnets.  Todd and Jake are regular 3G2S contributors, providing male and tween points of view on a variety of topics and consumer products.

Ours is a very tech-oriented family.  In addition to tech tips and product reviews, we also love to blog about shopping, fashion, easy recipes, simple crafts, personal photos and stories, Massachusetts attractions, and more.

As a brand ambassador and social media influencer, I encourage you to checkout my social media channels on the sidebar and follow me to stay up-to-date on 3G2S news.
