About the girl

HI. My name is Kimbo and I’m a craft hoarder. I have an unnatural attachment to my glue gun. I like crafts that are fast, easy and cute. I do more than just glue –but the glue gun represents me as a mom AND a crafter..whether it is making hair bows or gluing batman’s head back on…and I love the alliteration of a girl and a glue gun. (except my acronym is agaagg–which sounds like phlegm. So there’s that. )

I consider myself Jack of all crafts–Master of none. I love everything crafty related and bounce between each one.


I am an Idahoan and I love potatoes; fried, baked scalloped, mashed….whatever. Blackfoot is where I was born and raised (and if you just finished that with the theme song from fresh prince of bel air..then YOU, my friend, are in the right place)

I am married to this man 

for 15 years. (sometimes 15 verrrrry long years)

I have three kids….

and a few bald spots from where I have ripped my hair out. Love them to death but every once in a while I have a SERENITY NOW moment. I am currently thinking of crafting a cage for them…(PVC pipe…do you think that would work?)
We recently had a house fire! You can read about it here
