BIO: Hey there, I’m Kimberly Kalil from sunny Southern Arizona. I’m a work-like-crazy mama to two kiddos Shelby and Cooper (7-year-old and 2-year-old respectively). I’m a wife to a very patient, loving accountant (Mike). I love my family (a bit obsessively if you must know). I love to steal kisses from my baby boy and hang out with my big girl. My husband is my best friend and we have such a fabulous time together.
I travel for business. A lot. I work (from home) as a consultant for a Danish company that makes software for newspapers. This means I travel to newspapers around the world and train their staff to use our content management and design system. I have a degree in journalism and spent many years as a writer and editor before my current job. Writing has always been my first love… still is.
I adore anything creative. I scrap. I sew. I paint. I take as many pictures as I can. I spend a lot of my free time working on crafty sorts of projects. I’ve been paper scrapping since college, but recently converted to digi (about 10 months ago). With my crazy life and busy travel schedule digi works better for me. Plus, I have spent so much of my work life using design programs such as Photoshop and InDesign … it feels more natural to me to be creating in this environment.
5 PRODUCTS I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT:
All Roads Lead Home (staple, scallops) by PxlCafe
Typewriter Scribbled Font
Stitch Hiccups 1 and Stitch Hiccups 3 by SuzyQ Scraps
MY STYLE: Eclectic. A little bit of this and a little bit of that. I just so what makes me happy at the moment.
MY SCRAPPING IDOL(S): I have way too many to list. I love looking at oodles of pages and seeing how different each person choose to tell his or her story.
WHY I AM EXCITED TO BE ON THE TEAM: Why not? The Daily Digi is always packed with great inspiration and it’s seriously the best deal. Where else can you get so many digi supplies for such a great (low) price? Love it.
