My name is Kim and I live in northern Indiana with my wonderful husband. I love to make things, and making messes generally follows with all my creative attempts. I love baking, crafting of all kinds, writing, and photography. Am I any good at those things? Meh – I’m ok – definitely not a professional by any means, but others seem to like what I do, and I’m ok with that!

I’m a bit geeky, and I would love to transform the traditional thinking of what a “geek” is – it’s not always about technology and video games. (Hmm…I feel a blog post coming on about that!) I love baseball (I cried when we went to the Baseball Hall of Fame last year…you can’t tell a passionate fan there’s no crying in baseball!), cars (classic and exotic), history (Civil War, Victorian London, WWII, the 40’s-60’s), Sherlock, Doctor Who (Doctors 9, 10, 11), retro video games, cartoons from the 80’s (Rainbow Brite, She-Ra, Jem…they were all childhood heroes!), coffee, tea, crayons (yes, geeking out about crayons is a thing), and I am a diehard Anglophile (I’ve been known to break out with a standard British accent from time to time). Music and art also make that geek out list as well.

I have an Etsy shop – amazingly enough it’s called The Peach Martini; I chose that name because it kind of gives an air of retro appeal – I envision a classy looking dame sipping a martini at a dimly lit hot spot in the late 40’s or 50’s, not a hair out of place with that killer femme fatale style. I chose the peach aspect of it because my husband has bestowed the nickname “Peaches” on me early in our relationship as we share a common love for the fruit. We’re weird, I know. From time to time you’ll find all kinds of various goodies that I’ve made…items just looking for a forever home.

Occasionally I may review books, products, stores – let it be known that I do not receive compensation of any kind for this – I merely like to share with others!

I hope my blog will serve as a stopping ground while you’re enjoying your morning cuppa joe…or tea…or martini. Whatever your favorite beverage is, grab one, kick back and relax!
