About Me

A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL WHO SENT WEDDING ADVICE FOR MY DAUGHTER! I HAVE PUT THEM ALL INTO A JOURNAL I MADE FOR HER AS A WEDDING GIFT!

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' in Southern California. It's very peaceful up here and I love it! I am using my work address in San Fernando to receive swaps because my post office at home is actually in the next town and they don't deliver packages to my home or mailbox that is located a mile away from my house. I love to travel and have been to many countries. It's so cool to see the world and experience new things! I love visiting museums, monuments, castles, cathedrals & graveyards. I also love taking road trips, camping, beachcombing and light hiking. I enjoy going to 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...it's a nice change from the desert! When I am home I am mostly doing crafts or looking out the window watching birds or the sky. I have an organic vegetable garden and a greenhouse for flowers.I have a Tortoise shell cat named Mia & a Boston Terrier named Abbey. I also have a koi pond and a beehive that I tend to and pet chickens. I love healthy food, nature, art and beautiful things

Favorite Crafts

I love to spend time in my craft studio altering things, making things with nature, doing seasonal crafts, paper crafts and making jewelry with gemstones, glass and crystal beads. I just made my first scrapbook memory journal to give to my daughter as a wedding gift of all the planning we have done this past year for her September wedding. 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 ;)

Themes & Styles I like

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. Retro 50's, cactus & lamas.

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, animal print, camouflage or wine themed in my home décor. I do drink wine, I just don't have that theme in my house. My kitchen is retro 50's in Pink & Green. My bedroom is Ocean/Beach themed, guestroom is Shabby-Chic, office is All Over Asia themed, living room is Bohemian, an Earthy bathroom, a Pond themed bathroom & a Mexico themed rec room.

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.

ALLERGIES

FOOD ALLERGY- NO WHEAT/GLUTEN. SENSITIVE SKIN. I have allergies & migraines and can't eat wheat or artificial sweeteners, chemicals, MSG & dyes.

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).

Quotes Movie Music Books

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 like Fairytales & shows about royalty & Discovery channel shows about Ancient Egypt & stuff like that. I watch HGTV & Hallmark every now and then.

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.

USPS & SWAP ISSUES

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!

KIDS STOCKING STUFFERS
