Hi I’m Kim,
I love design, crafts, food, a lot of geeky stuff and trying to make myself a better person. I used to have a few random blogs but decided a while ago to bundle them all together so this site is a mish-mash of everything that I do and love. Just below this intro, you can see my social media links, my mailing list sign up, my blog posts and at the bottom of the page some of my projects. Hope something on my website interests you!
You may have come over to my site due to my recent ‘dramas’ – I was diagnosed with stage 1 of a rare type of cancer called Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL) which is more prevalent in 50-60-year-old men, and more prevalent still in black men! This all happened when I was 28 weeks pregnant. After my daughter was born and being convinced that my cancer was completely containable and treatable I got pregnant again. Unfortunately at 16 weeks I was told my cancer had spread to become stage 4. My prognosis is not good now unless I can have a stem cell transplant.
My life is actually one of real joy and happiness despite my cancer diagnosis – in fact I believe it has been a trigger to focus me in a really positive way. My children are my life, my husband is the best man in the world, my life itself is wonderful. I now love to consider how to help others see the happiness that is inherent in life and so I have a lot of passion for mental wellbeing, creative therapy and philosophic thought about life, death and everything that comes in between.

When you attempt a Slimming World SP day or days, you need to have a PLAN with a capital ‘SP PLAN’! I spend a long time planning my normal extra easy weeks, so I knew I needed to spend even longer figuring out Slimming World SP. What the heck is Slimming...read more
I was referred back to London for my cancer recently and was scheduled in for two radiotherapy sessions. I had to go in on a Friday to ‘plan’ the sessions – this meant chatting over what was going to happen, side effects, to mark the areas on my body...read more
This course and book have been a long time in the making – in my last (Blender) course I created a really detailed workbook to compliment the course. I started to do the same thing for my SketchUp and Twilight for Interior Designers course. But, I realised that...read more
I got interviewed by BBC’s Lewis Coombes about military accommodation and the problems we’ve had. It was pretty cool to see how they create their stories in terms of videoing different angles, lighting set up and questioning. I’d love to see how they...read more
