About Kim

Hi! I’m Kim and nice to meet you!

Kim McDougal

My little site has gone through so many changes and even at times I’ve started all over again LOL! But, now I really like the direction I’m going. I’ve been a cardmaker for nearly 3 years and I’ve learned a lot (still have so much to learn). So, I thought it would be great to use this space as a review site or resource library for paper crafting with cardmaking the main idea behind it.

My Career Background

I have always been in the creative industry even when I was doing Word Processing for corporate jobs. I now work a daytime job (I call it my day job!) for a Non-profit organization and craft in my spare time. The cards I make are regularly donated to local and national charities which makes my heart really happy. Kim’s Handcrafted Cards started out as a business and was successful for about a year, however I wasn’t happy. Once we (hubby and me and God) decided to change from a business model to a hobby, I felt so much better in my spirit.

Transitioning to a Craft Hobby from Business Owner

I love to try new tools and supplies so when I find items I love and use, I’ll try to feature them here. And, if you’re new to cardmaking, I hope you’ll find the information here helpful. Also, if you’re a seasoned crafter, perhaps you’ll find something useful too. One thing I love about this community is that everyone is supportive and extremely encouraging. I’ve met some wonderful crafty friends!

Getting out the Important Stuff…

The opinions on my blog are my own and I only write and recommend products I use and love. I purchase 95% of all my supplies. Some were given to me by crafty friends or that I won in a giveaway. I do not work with any sponsors nor do any companies give me free products.

If you click on any of my links for more information about a product, please know that I will earn a small commission at no additional cost to you. I appreciate your support as it helps me run my blog so thank you!

I also enjoy organizing my craftroom, decorating, cooking, writing and singing.

Hope you will enjoy coming here and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
