My name is Rachel Carr and I started This Is Carrt in 2014 when my husband's job moved to Germany and I decided to give up my day job in the city and go with him on the adventure! I had always loved to travel and write, and was also passionate about photography so one day I sat down and mingled all three of them on this website and my Etsy page. I write about a wide range of things like how to cope with airline hand luggage allowances to what to wear to any destination wedding. However, when I write up a holiday destination, there are more often than not a few common themes linking what are otherwise very different places:

1) Food. I love to eat. It structures my day to day life as well as any trip that I go on. I think food is a great way to start to experience a new culture as well as meeting new people.

2) Value. I don't get swayed by places to be seen and clothing to be seen in for the sake of it. I hate being ripped off. Be that by a fiver or by hundreds of pounds. If an activity or an excursion I go on is expensive but an amazing experience, I will still highly recommend it, but won't recommend it simply because it is deemed luxury.

3) Beauty. I love looking at pretty things. They don't have to have a purpose!

Let's Talk About Text

When I started This Is Carrt, it was a decision made by myself for several reasons.  One was that I had seen a huge increase in people's love of text in art on their walls, often as it was meaningful to them, and therefore far more enjoyable than an Ikea print of a little known Abstract Expressionist. (For the record, I am a big Abstract Expressionist fan. I just know that some members of the public balk at the price paid for an artwork that looks like a colour swatch to them).

As an extension of my current offering, I therefore decided to develop a range that focused on Text Art, or Typography as is the posher phrase! I have now produced several posters with sayings, inspirations, witty comments or remarks on them, that I hope you enjoy. I have had a lot of fun making them. I used pictures that I have taken over the last year as background and imposed words on them that take on a larger meaning with that image behind.

I think many of these make for great gifts - either housewarming or birthday presents as posters or small chunky canvases. I can also make these images into greeting cards, just get in touch and we can talk prices. I already have one of the alcohol related ones earmarked for my darling father in law. For a better idea of prices for prints or canvases, have a look here. I'd love to hear of any favourites my readers have, so please do just leave a comment below.
