10 Things You Didn't Know about Kim Holmes

#1 - I have an obsession with Converse shoes along with my daughter -- between the two of us, we own and wear over 25 pairs.  Good thing we are the same size!


#2 - My current color obsession is lime green - right now my bathroom is painted this color and I have 2 pairs of shoes, 2 coats and 2 coffee mugs in this shade.  Yummy!



#3 -  I have been married for 24 years to a man who I have known since I was 2 years old.  He is 7 years older and was my  brother's best friend growing up.  I don't remember my life without him in it in some way, shape or form.  He has gone from being a pest, to being a babysitter, to being a crush, and is now the love of my life. 


#4 - I am adopted, though I didn't find out until I was 18 years old.  Shocking, but pretty normal back in the day.

#5 - Growing up I never wanted to have kids.  I despised babysitting and could never imagine wanting to have my own children.  I now have 7 kids, 5 of my own and 2 of my husbands that are just like my own. Add to that, 4 significant others and a granddaughter and there are a lot of them! 

#6 - I suffer from anxiety and have finally learned how to keep it at bay --- scrapbooking!  Spending time creating is the best drug there is.
#7 - I am a Krazy Coupon Lady!  I love this website and I spend over 5 hours a week clipping coupons, finding sales and planning my shopping trips.  Getting huge bargains on food and essentials is a total rush for me!


#8 -  I am totally OCD -- I don't know how to do anything in moderation, it's all or nothing for me. But, don't confuse that with perfectionism, a perfectionist I'm not.  Just have to give it 100% every time or it's not worth it!

#9 -I eat cold cereal every morning for breakfast, always have and always will!  My favorite - Special K with Strawberries!

#10 - I am so blessed and lucky to be part of this Imaginisce Design Team!  Okay, so you probably knew that already, but I feel like I need to say it anyway!  This is one amazing company and team and I pinch myself daily because it is too good to be true!

Please hop over to my blog,  The Holmes Crew for a few of my favorite Imaginisce projects from 2010 and check out my galleries and my other obsessions!  Have a great day!  Happy Scrapping!

Your life sounds like it came from a romance book, lots of twist and turns but with a happy ending. I also suffer from anxiety and OCD, my Dr informed me the best thing I could do for myself is to set up a craft room and make something everyday. Thanks for sharing these things about you.
PS. I'm a Crazy Coupon Lady too. lol
