So if you happened to come across this website on a random google search and want to know who the heck created this totally awesome blog (hey I can hope can’t I?) then you have come to the right place! My human name is Kelly Naimi but the name of my soul is Dances with Crafts. Okay I am totally joking about that last part but hey I might as well make you laugh a bit while you are here.
So who am I? Okay lets start with what I do to make the bucks that funds my obsession with Michaels. I am an elementary school teacher. Yes I know, total cliché right? A teacher who loves crafting, oh boy how original. Well, let me start off by saying that I am not the image you have of me in your head right now. I have a side of me that is dangerous, edgy and very mysterious (not really but hey I got your attention right?) No? Okay, moving on.
To give you a better idea of me, I have included a picture of myself above. Yes I know, I look young for my age. I have been told this my whole life and only now since I am approaching that horrible number with a 3 and a 0 in it, do I really appreciate it.
Okay so you know what I do for a living, what else can I tell you about me that will make you not run away screaming. Well, I have a dog named Summer who is the very light of my life and if you decide I am worthy of following you will be seeing many a picture of her in my feed. In fact let me just start now.
Yes that is a big pile of laundry she is sitting on but don’t judge me I was busy that week. I know she is adorable right? That is one of the reasons why she is probably the most spoiled puppy on the planet. But I digress. Moving on, I am not married but I am involved with someone and have been for almost 3 years. His name is Bryan and you will hear me mention him here and there when I need to vent about him leaving his clothes all over the bathroom floor. Because he will feel left out if I don’t include a picture of him, here is one. This is for you babe!
I come from a small immediate family, I only have one sibling, a brother, who is off basking in the Caribbean, what a jerk! Oh he is also there for medical school too. My mom and dad split up when I was 7 years old and about 5 years ago my dad moved to Florida, he isn’t a part of my life but I wish him well and he does the same for me.
I love in the grand ole state of Michigan, and love every minute of it. Okay, not totally true I hate the last few weeks of February (or as we Michiganders call it-the depths of frozen hell), but that’s neither here nor the there. I am 27 years old and I live with my boyfriend and my little girl. We recently bought a house and it is proving to be a challenge but we are loving every minute of it.
So that’s me, an almost normal 27 year old school teacher who decided to write a blog to share some of her way cool ideas. (Yes I said way cool, and personally I think it is an under rated phrase.) 😉
