Yours Truly
Yours Truly!

Hi there, I’m Kim!  Born and raised in California, I have been in Austin, TX since 2008 and I’m never going back!

I am a Dental Lab Technician by day.  I am a maker, crafter, artist, blogger, puppy parent, introvert, and general slacker by night.

Why Puttering?

I feel like there is a lot of pressure to be constantly striving toward some big goal.  Goals are great, don’t get me wrong, but stop and enjoy the moment now and again.  There’s nothing wrong with doing something that brings you joy IN THAT MOMENT, even if it doesn’t “accomplish” anything.  Learn to Knit, doodle in a sketchbook, read a trashy romance novel, plant a flower in your yard, clean something if that makes you happy.  Whatever!  Just do something silly that you enjoy, and when you get tired of it….stop.  Move on to something else that you enjoy, or take care of some adulting. No pressure, remember?


I choose my affiliates because they are actually companies that I purchase from on the regular.  Primarily Amazon, Joann, and Walmart for cost, convenience, and instant gratification.  I would be linking to their products anyway, so not affiliating would just be throwing money away and giving them free advertising. Please take a look at my Disclaimor.

Things That Bring Me Joy

  • Surrounding myself with pretty things
  • Making pretty things
  • My husband’s smile
  • Kissing my puppy’s soft little mug
  • Solving problems
  • Teaching myself new skills
  • That first cup of coffee in the morning before anyone else is up
  • Being a total dork
  • Terrible puns
  • Fresh sheets

How do you putter?  What brings you joy?  See those little icons up there in the corner?  Say hi and tell me about it!
