I recently had to re-do my profile because I somehow accidently deleted the whole thing! It's okay though, because I have learned so much since I started swapping. It's been about a year now of swapping and I see how others swap and I have learned from that. Looking back I realize how much you all have brightened up my days. I really look forward to this new year 2018 with all that I have learned from you guys. I want to give back to people what I have experienced through some of you. I will need to watch some Martha Stewart tutorials on wrapping gifts first, haha! Seriously though, thank you all for the love.
Hi, my name is Kimberly Faye Kirk. I am a Leo. I am a spiritual, nature loving person. I live in a rural area up in the foothills of the Angles national Forest, in the high desert of southern California. It is very peaceful here and I love all my quiet, alone time. I grew up by the beach & that is where I spend most of my getaway time. My passions are crafting, traveling and art. I have traveled to many countries. I love going places and seeing the architecture, trying new foods, learning things about places, people and history. I love going to museums and art galleries. I also enjoy the outdoors and gardening & I am a bee keeper too :)
I like to do many different types of crafts including: painting, paper crafts, 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 love trying new crafts. I can crochet a scarf, but that's the only pattern I know. I can do printed cross stitch but not counted. I sew by hand because I don't know how to operate a sewing machine.
Alice In Wonderland, Fairies, Gypsies, Mermaids, Goddess, Cats, Victorian, Vintage Halloween, winter, forest, India, Egyptian, Irish, British Family, Tea, shabby-chic/romantic, Dia de Los Muertos. 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 or animal print or camo.
I respect all religions, but I have my own beliefs that may differ from yours.

Please no cosmetics or toiletries unless natural, I have sensitive skin that rashes. No perfume unless essential oil please.

Both from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
My favorite movie is Pulp Fiction. My all time favorite show is Magnum P.I. I watch Stranger Things, The Middle & Once Upon A Time-but it's gotten pretty bad this season. I like Dr.Who. I like Fairytales & shows about royalty & Discovery channel shows about Ancient Egypt & stuff like that. I started watching the Hallmark channel Christmas shows.
I listen to easy Rock, Alternative, 40's music & music from around the world and nature sounds.

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.
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.
Graicen is my 16 year old niece. It's too difficult to shop for her, so just whatever you think a 16 year old would like :) Thank you!
