A bookstore manager who isn't afraid to dress up in inflatable costumes. That's my kind of friend!
I love bragging about you. That's why I have this interview series where I feature one of my biggest fans each month. I want everyone to get a peek at the amazing work they're doing and be inspired, because they're seriously some of the coolest people I've ever known.
This month I'm bragging about: Kim (@kim_broidery_life)
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Kim, and I work for a bookstore as a manager. I'm married and have 3 children, who are all my favorite things about life. Aside from embroidery, I enjoy reading, true crime, hiking, crafting, sticker collecting, and gardening. My favorite thing to do is sit on our front porch (we just moved to Mississippi from Arizona) and stitch or paint. I'm currently teaching my 5 year old to embroider, and she's picking it up quickly!
What is your hidden talent?
Serial Killer trivia. I've been reading about them since I was in 7th grade when I found a book about serial killers of the 70's and 80's. Since then, I've been hooked on studying what makes these people tick.
What is the coolest (or weirdest) thing you have ever done?
When we were first locked down due to Covid, I dressed up in a blow up T-rex costume and walked around my entire neighborhood just to entertain my neighbors. It worked.
The song that's currently in your head?
"Stay High" by Brittany Howard. Her voice and talent knows no bounds. I love putting on her vinyl album and just enjoying the music while I clean or stitch.
The book you share with all your friends?
"Professional Troublemaker" by Luvvie Ajayi Jones. This is a personal growth book written by one of the most brilliant women out there today, and I highly recommend it!
What superlative would you give yourself?
Most likely to take in all the unwanted animals. My dream is to run an animal rescue where misfits of all kinds can find a loving home.
What embroidery project are you most proud of?
I did a koi pond mixed media hoop about a year ago. To this day, it's my favorite. I used watercolor paint, embroidery, and dried moss to complete it!
