About Me

Hi My name is Kimberly Faye Kirk. I am a Leo. I am a happily married mom to 2 grown up kids who are moved out, but not far away. I live in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. It's very peaceful up here and I love it! I have a Tortoise Shell 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 monuments, castles, cathedrals & graveyards. I also love taking road trips and beachcombing or hiking .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. I am an easy going but sensitive, spiritual but not religious, nature loving person & I just like to be happy and spread love :)

Favorite Crafts

I love to spend time in my craft studio painting on canvas, creating jewelry, making things with nature & doing seasonal crafts. I make Pysanky eggs. It is a Ukrainian batik method using beeswax, a candle & dye. I can crochet a scarf, but that's the only stitch I know. I can do printed cross stitch but not counted. I will occasionally sew an easy project by hand. 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 ;) I am doing paper crafting but I really do not need any more supplies for that. Trust me...I could open a store!

Themes & Styles I like

Alice In Wonderland, Fairies, Gypsies, Mermaids, Goddess, Cats, Victorian, Bohemian, 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, camo or wine themes.

I respect all religions, but I have my own beliefs that may differ from yours.

"I can't go back to yesterday because I was a different person then".

USPS & SWAP ISSUES

I live in a rural area with a tiny post office with short hours, that seems to be a bit slow. If you are missing a swap from me please send me a message and I will either track it or send out a new swap. My incoming packages get scanned as "received" as soon as they come in & before I even pick them up, so please allow a few days for me to rate you.

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 just don't have it in me if I am tired. 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 :) Love & peace to all of you & thank you so much for all your swaps, they really brighten my days :) P.S. When you rate me a 5 without any comment I think you hated my item :(

KIDS STOCKING STUFFERS

Graicen is my 17 year old niece. She collects polished rocks. She likes all the little trinkets at Francesca's. She likes all the gold-toned jewelry that's out right now with triangles, arrows, cactus and stuff like that. She likes stuff for acne prone skin...pore cleansers, toners.
