About Me

12/12/17 UPDATE ON FIRES: THEY HAVE MOVED AWAY FROM MY AREA AND OUR ROADS ARE ALL OPEN TO MY POST OFFICES. I NEED TO GO PICK UP MY MAIL AND RATE EVERYONE. SORRY FOR THE DELAYS IN RESPONDING.

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 almost a year now of swapping and I see how others swap and I am learning from that. Looking back I realize how much you all have brightened up my days. This will be my first Christmas with Swap-bot. 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 though, 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 San Gabriel 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, on my boat in the Ventura Beach Marina. My passions are crafting, traveling and art. I have traveled to many countries. I love going places and seeing the old monuments, castles, cemeteries, cathedrals & trying new foods, learning things about places, people and history. I love going to museums and art galleries. I also enjoy the outdoors and love a quick road trip or a long one camping in my RV. I love to plant flowers and organic veggies in my garden and green house, which is in a bohemian/tea theme.. I love watching the birds from my porch, especially quail. I have been keeping bees and learning as I go. I also love to star gaze or just sit and look at the mountains.

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 stitch 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 :/ but I do have one and want to learn!

Themes & Styles I like

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.

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 LOVE glittery cards!

I am a petite small & I love leggings & tunics.

I do not mind receiving gently pre-owned items, besides cosmetics & toiletries :)

fancy candles, like twisted, shaped, sugar frosted... (no tea lights though, I have 100s!)

I had a daughter named Fawn, but she died when she was still a baby, SO I would love to receive little fawn figurines to collect.

Recipe cards,

Pencils, erasers & sharpeners,

When it comes to cosmetics & toiletries I am pretty picky (sensitive skin) & only use natural or high end stuff.

Soap & Bath Bombs & Lip Balm (I make my own).

Body or face Lotion (eye cream is fine), because I buy natural, handmade.

Sheet Masks (I tried them but just can't stand them).

Religious items.

PLEASE NO (I HAVE SOOO MUCH OF THIS RIGHT NOW) :

Ribbon/String

Note Pads

Loose note paper

ALLERGIES

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 do eat dark chocolate now & then but no fillings or cookie in case of wheat or dyes. Nuts & caramel are fine though :)

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.

USPS & SWAP ISSUES

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 :(

KIDS STOCKING STUFFERS

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!
