About Me

It's getting closer to my daughter's September wedding so I am going to have to slow down on the swapping 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'. 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 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. Sometimes my husband will drag me to the lake to go fishing. I never want to but always end up enjoying it. 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. For work I commute an hour and do the book keeping at my husband's machine shop. 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 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, 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, 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".

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 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! P.S. When you rate me a 5 without any comment I think you hated my item :(
