About Kimbo

Kimbo blogs at A girl and a glue gun--where she puts her hot glue gun to good use (as well as her vinyl cutter and sewing machine) She loves all crafts and is thrifty (the nice way to say she's cheap) So she is constantly trying to come up with fast and easy projects that won't break the bank! She lives in Idaho with her hot husband and 3 kiddos.


  1. Hi Kimbo.
    At Augost we made a cardboard playhouse

    Tonight I found at my bookmarks the "cardboard-playhouse" post at your blog , I realized it was the inspiration for our house. So thank you for the inspiration and for all the beautiful things you sharing whith us.

    I got some small and large acrylic ice cubes today (they were really cheap …. discounted way down) but I have no idea what they are for or what amazing craft I could do w/ them!

    Any ideas?

    So, first off…LOVE your site…it's fantabulous! Second, I am trying to start a blog for all things mom related, although not a ton of crafts, as I'm not inclined in the seamstress skills. I see that you use blogspot, I'm having some issues with it, would you mind if I pick your brain a bit??? You can contact me @ my email [email protected]. Also, small world my aunt and Uncle live in Pocatello too, she works for Simplot and he owns a golf course! So any advise/help you could give me would be super awesome!!!



  4. Hahaha…..when I read the etching post earlier I read the phrases and thought "genius – how cute are those sayings??!!!!" Soooo different from the ordinary last name! But maybe my humor is off 😉

    Kim…you crack me up! I love reading your funny comments and jokes on your blog. Crafting is fun and you take to a whole new level with your blog. It's very refreshing. Im a stay at home Mom of two boys and I love crafting. Especially easy, upcycled crafts. My 3 year old son is begging me to make the felt car mat…so I will be attacking that project with full force this weekend..wish me luck! Keep up the good work, you rock!

    I loooooove your blog, it is AWESOME! I love the felt mats they are perfect, I need many many pockets for many princesses………and then the male half is going to be looking for felt lego layouts……..oh help me……. that plan will be an all afternoon one!

  7. Hi Kim! I am fairly new to your blog, but I LOVE IT! Thank you for sharing your creativity! Quick question I thought you might be able to help me on…I am looking for some seat cushions for my outdoor wicker furniture. Any suggestions on a good sight to find them on, or a good way to make them myself? I don't mind paying a little extra more for some custom made ones. I have this "vision" of a great purple, red, and olive green paisley print material in my head and I'm bound and determined to find something close to it! Thanks again for your great blog! Have a wonderful day!


  8. I'm not a blogger but I read alot of blogs for craft and sewing, You are by far the most entertaining!!! You are so cute and funny!! Keep it up!

  9. Hey! I am trying to buy the menu board kit, but the link jumps me to etsy and says the item is no longer available. This cannot be since I am having a party to make them, I need 5 so far! Please help!

    I can’t get any of your tutorials to open up anymore!! When I click on them they just bring up an enlarged picture. I even tried it from the side bar and it does the same thing. Super bummed 🙁

  14. I was wondering if you could give me a step by step way of printing the thank you candy bar wrappers on my computer. I can’t figure out how to print them and when I try to open them in word, it comes up as all sorts of codes and boxes. Thanks a bunch!! Great craft by the way!! Love it!

  20. Hello! I was wondering who won your Favorite Items Giveaway that you had earlier this month. 🙂

    Thank you,

  21. Oh my goodness. I found you from a post about Dollar Store DIY. I went to Pinterest and there you were. I am now following you there because of the titles of your boards! I cannot wait to introduce you (electronically of course) to my sisters.
    Thank you for the biggest smile of my day so far.
