About Me

Hello! My name is Kimberly but I like to go by Kym.

California Girl that moved to Chicago last August. I swapped a few years ago and then became a bad swapper. if I flaked on you. I am sorry I had problems with my post office and my neighbors stealing OUTGOING mail from our apt.

My main craft is knitting. I have lots of needles now but I love Yarn!

I was also just given a super cute singer sewing machine and serger! I am going to learn how to sew, so anything would be helpful

I'm also a big foodie, My Husband likes to cook and I like to Bake and we both just love all things food: interesting spices & salts, cool accessories, non- x-mas cookie cutters, I love vintage kitchen ( think Kitschy) things, especially floral ones.

I love nerd things, I play video games, Magic: The Gathering, GURPS, D&D I would I always need really small polyhedral dice ( smaller than normal) and just love most geek chic things, Companion Cube, sac boy or Moogles are a big PLUS!!!!

My favorite colors are Grey, Kelly Green, All shades of Purple and Yellow. I HATE ORANGE!!!!!! I really really really don't like the color

I Collect Stationary, small silver things, Victorian or Art nouveau,


I also prefer things that are either pre-owned or made in America. I would love anything made locally

My favorite animals are Giraffes, Camels and Moose. I also like animals that don't normally have wings, having wings ( see profile picture)

Favorite Music

I love getting new music, hearing new bands. I don't listen to mainstream radio so even mainstream music is new to me.

My favorite Bands/Musicans are: Adele, Polyphonic Spree, Elizabeta, Portishead, Carole King, Nat King Cole,Cake, Coheed and Cambria, Supertramp, Frank Sinatra, Queen, Dixie Chicks, Postal Service, Dance Hall Crashers, Death Cab for Cutie, Elephant, Tommy Emmanuel...

About Rating

I give out hearts when I REALLY like something. It would be better to give something that is something my profile really likes, then fill the package with random things that I may or may not like.

If you think you deserved a heart, and I didn't give it to you, feel free to message me and we can talk.

convercely, don't feel like you HAVE to heart me too, unless you LOVE my swaps (lately I have not been able to do the little extras that people love) don't feel like you need to heart me. but if you DO NOT like it, please message me and tell me what you think. I want to learn.

Comment: Never received anything. They said they forgot about the swap after they had a month to put it together and send it. I asked about the swap after the deadline passed and they said they would send out that day (12/6) and marked sent. No replies to PM's since they said they were sending. Update: I saw you read my message from 12/17 but didn't respond. Nothing received as of 12/26.
Response: Trying to get back into Swapping Message sent 2/22/13

hello. I sent you a message but I have no reply. Just wanted to ask and confirm that my swap for "Quick One Stamp De-stash" was received. You have not rated me but please message me before you rate if there was a problem.

user2637 on Apr 7, 2011:

Just wanted to let you know I have listed you as a flaker on my profile due to your non-sending and non-response about the GSC Cheap Postage Tag. :(:(

iggygirl on Dec 31, 2010:

I also just notice you haven't rated me for the package I sent you for video game month, have you received it.

iggygirl on Dec 31, 2010:

your partner in the video game swap is worried that you have flaked her because she hasn't received a reply to her pms. I'll send you an email just incase you have not seen the message but if you do not sort this I'll have to send a request that the group found remove you from Geek Swap Central.

pandessa on Oct 15, 2010:
