It's getting closer to my daughter's September wedding so I am going to have to slow down on the craft swaps and focus on the wedding plans :)
I am allergic to wheat ;) Please don't send any. I think it gets missed down below, so I wrote it up here too. Thank you
Hi. My name is Kimberly Faye Kirk and I am a Leo. I have been happily married since 1988 and a mom to 2 grown up kids who are moved out, but not far away. I live in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, in the high desert at an elevation of 4,500' (although I am using my work address in San Fernando to receive swaps) in Southern California. It's very peaceful up here and I love it! I have a Tortoise Chimera cat named Mia & a Boston Terrier named Abbey. I love to travel and have been to many countries. It's so cool to see the world...how different and also the same people are everywhere. I love visiting museums, monuments, castles, cathedrals & graveyards. I also love taking road trips, camping, beachcombing and light hiking. I enjoy going to museums, art galleries, botanical gardens and tea houses with my friends. On the weekends I sometimes stay on my boat with my husband in the Marina and soak up the moisture and breath in the salty air. When I am home I am mostly doing crafts. I have an organic vegetable garden and a greenhouse for flowers. I also have a beehive that I tend to and pet chickens. I love healthy food, nature, art and beautiful things.
I love to spend time in my craft studio altering things, making things with nature & doing seasonal crafts. I make Pysanky eggs. It is a Ukrainian batik method using beeswax, a candle & dye. I also make soap with my daughter, who also makes natural body products....If you receive one from me, don't think I am being cheap. I actually pay full price for her items to help support her Etsy shop when I can AND you are most likely getting a higher dollar amount item than the swap called for ;)
Alice In Wonderland, Fairies, Gypsies, Mermaids, Goddess, Cats, Victorian, Bohemian, Frida Kahlo, forest, ocean/beach, India, Egyptian, Irish, British Family, Tea, shabby-chic/romantic, Dia de Los Muertos. cactus, arrows, lamas...all that cute trendy stuff. Bees.
I like Light & Happiness & Love & Healing...I like witches but not dark. I like odd & creepy things, but not evil things.
I do not care for country décor, animal print, camouflage or wine themes.
I respect all religions and it's fascinating to learn about them, but I have my own beliefs that may differ from yours, so please don't try to convert me.
I AM COLLECTING MARRAIGE ADVICE TO PUT IN A JOURNAL FOR MY DAUGHTER & HER FINACE TO KEEP. if you want to just write something on a little piece of paper & send it with my swap I would be so grateful and they would have it forever to read when they need a little reminder.

I have allergies & migraines and can't eat wheat or artificial sweeteners, chemicals, MSG & dyes. I don't eat much candy- I am sensitive to sugar and too much gives me a headache. I do eat chocolate occasionally and I like dried fruit & nuts :) I use natural or hypo-allergenic make-up & toiletries (not cheap/$1 store/stuff from China).
My favorite quote is:
"I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then".
from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
I never go to the movies and I don't watch much T.V. I watch a few things: Stranger Things, Once Upon A Time & Better Call Sal. I like Fairytales & shows about royalty & Discovery channel shows about Ancient Egypt & stuff like that. I watch HGTV & Hallmark if I am home alone at night and feel scared LOL.
I listen to easy Rock, 80s new wave, Alternative, Beatles Chanel, 40's music & music from around the world and nature sounds to sleep.
Books I am reading right now are: Queen Of The Road & The Rules Of Magic.
I do my best and would never intentionally hurt someone. If you have an issue with a swap I have sent, please message me about it. I try to add a personal note with my swaps, but sometimes I don't. So, please forgive me, I don't mean to be rude. I send my swaps off with well wishes and the intent to spread happiness.
Thank you for reading my profile and for all your swaps, they really brighten my days :) Big hugs!
