My Etsy Store
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 :)
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!
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 have allergies & migraines and can't eat wheat or artificial sweeteners, chemicals, MSG & dyes. I don't eat much candy- I am sensitive to sugar and too much gives me a headache. I prefer not to receive any food items, unless swap calls for it & I do eat chocolate occasionally .
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 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 :(
Graicen is my 17 year old niece. She is just now getting into paper crafting and making things to give to her friends. She likes to hang little things from her purse and backpack. 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 the Sephora store. She likes things with lamas, cats and unicorns on them. She likes all that Target bin stuff to decorate her room with. She likes Dr.Who stuff and Tim Burton and other kinda creepy things like that. She is into her cell phone like most kids and likes to watch movies and you tube videos. She likes Starbucks. She is not a pink, sparkley type girl though. She is a size medium.
