About Me

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 :)

Favorite Crafts

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.

Themes & Styles I like

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.

I have allergies & migraines and can't eat wheat or artificial sweeteners, chemicals & dyes. I don't eat candy- I am sensitive to sugar and too much gives me a headache. I do eat dark chocolate now & then but no fillings or cookie in case of wheat or dyes.

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

Quotes Movie Music Books

My favorite quotes are:

"We are all mad here" &

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

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.

Books I am reading right now are: Queen Of The Road & The Rules Of Magic.


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!

naturenerd3 rated for Frida Kahlo Pocket Letter on Nov 2, 2017
Comment: I love it! Thank you for adding pictures too. I wish we had day of the dead celebrations here, but we are so far North we just don't. They tried to hold a parade here a couple years ago, but I was working Nov 2nd. I think they were doing it again, but it was going to be on October 16th and sounded just like a regular Halloween parade being so early. Anyway, your letter is beautiful. Thank you so much.
