About Me!

Hello there, my name is Kimberley - Kimmi to my blogging friends. I have a fabulous and very loving boyfriend of more than seven years. We had our first child in August of 2008 and called her Poppy.

I love to craft. I started out with Art and Design at school managing to get an A grade for my GCSE. I then went onto college and then studied to be a nurse. It was not until 2006 that I found my crafty fingers again and took up scrap booking and card making. I've since tried my hand at Knitting and I've just bought my first crochet hooks and I am slowly reading a book for me to be able to start crocheting.

I was born and bred in the North East (UK) in 1983. When I met Stephen in 2002/03 I was still studying my Nursing so I stayed at home and then when that was all complete I moved to Sunny Dorset!

In 2008 three months after my baby girl was born, I was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer. I underwent a Right Hemi-Colectomy and have a 6 inch scar which goes from below my bellybutton to just below my sternum. I underwent many tests and investigations as it was thought I had Cancer in my Liver, but this was found to be benign. I then had six months of Chemotherapy which ended in August 2009 just before Poppy's first birthday.
