This has to be the absolute coolest thing I’ve done with Sof, and it’s SO easy! She’s constantly asking me if we can ‘paint the driveway’ again… Warning: Do not use anything but previously determined-to-be play clothes (and shoes) for this! It does…

I’ve often spent well over an hour perusing the housewares, stationery, and party supply sections at Target and other stores, and thought, “My art is this good! Why shouldn’t I be doing this?” Which is all fine and dandy, however what I would keep telling…

“I don’t have anything of value to sell.” “If my work is so good, how come I haven’t sold anything?” “I spend so much time on facebook marketing myself, and nothing happens!” “What the hell would anyone want to read about me for? I don’t need to write…

No, seriously. You can. I promise. And it’s not rocket science or brain surgery or other super-hard-job-you’ll-never-have. Now, before I go any further, let’s just get a few basics out of the way. Don’t bother reading this unless you meet both of the…

I’m so incredibly excited to share with you guys that I’ve finally been able to open up my one-on-one coaching program again! I’m doing things a little bit differently this time, because I really need to know that you and I are a good fit before we start…

I have always loved facebook. Even through the mass changes they’ve made that always flipped people out, and when they started to really cram ads down our throats, I still loved facebook. But I’m beginning to have second (and third, fourth, and fifth)…

One thing I notice time and time again with artists and crafters is the frustration with managing their online presence. Most creative entrepreneurs would much rather be spending their time being creative, making things, doodling… anything but getting…

I’m dreadfully late in posting these, but if I told you that it was because I’ve been so super busy working on new art, some art and business courses, and enjoying the sunshine that’s just recently decided to join me in upstate New York, would you forgive…
Yep, I'm cleaning house. Have a little work to do around here, but I'll be back soon. Until then, check me out at these fine establishments: Etsy · Deny Designs · Zazzle. and if you're an artist or creative, learn more about how I can help you build and grow your business here!

I’m so super excited for being a part of ArtLicensingShow.com, I can’t even begin to put it into words! It’s a fabulous place for artists and licensors/art directors to connect, like a 24/7 live art licensing show. If you’re an artist or art licensor or…

Yep, if you’re wondering, one of those “things” is this blog. It’s my most-sacred-most-neglected of everywhere I am online, and I really don’t want it to be that way anymore. If you look at my “day job” site, you’ll see that I’ve been working hard to help…

To say that I’ve had a moment of ‘enough is enough’ is an understatement. See, I’ve been contracting with a company for a while now, and it’s really just not a fulfilling job for me anymore. (Yes, I’m well aware that they’re probably following my blog,…

Introduction
G+ said I'm supposed to write something here to let you know that you've found the right Lara. Considering I know there's no other Lara Kulpa on the planet, unless you did what many do and misspelled my name (as "Laura"), you pretty much got the right girl. :)

Alright fine, here it goes:

I'm a community manager, social media junkie, and web consultant. This is the stuff that consumes most of my day, and what I love doing for a living. I truly enjoy helping people find their footing online, plant roots, grow and connect. It's awesome.

I'm also one of those artsy-craftsy people. I paint, draw, sculpt, and make jewelry. I sell almost all my stuff (with the exception of pieces I truly can't part with because I love them so). You can learn more about my artsy side at Art By Lara for now, until I get my other sites and shops set up. (I'm coming to the realization that I truly can't do it all, but it's painful for me to accept that, dammit. Be patient with me!)

Some other things I love: Retired racing greyhounds (and working with rescue groups), photography, chocolate, coffee, avocados, sugar snap peas, sushi and Riesling.

I love lots of things, so I could make that list a mile long, but you'd wind up bored and then I'd cry. So I'll stop there.

I currently live in Upstate NY with my boyfriend, his two cats (my greyhounds stayed with my dad), and in the house that my grandmother raised my dad in, where we're now raising our daughter!

So I've got this open-door policy. Email me, tweet me, facebook me, G+ me, any time. I love meeting new people and helping out any way I can!
