I'm glad you're here.

A little about me

Posing for photo shoot in media center

  • I'm a library media specialist at a public elementary school teaching reading strategies, leading technology integration, designing STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) challenges in our media center makerspace and providing information and reader's advisory services,
  • I'm an anti-bullying and literacy advocate,
  • I'm a freelance writer and book reviewer, and
  • I'm an ordained minister.
  • I enjoy making beautiful *usually useful* things with my hands,
  • I thrive in the great outdoors and enjoy gardening, hiking, biking, camping, and geocaching,
  • I love digging in the dirt and breathing deeply of the salty ocean air, and
  • I'm really big on family.

How'd I pick the site name?

The term 'makerspace' is big in the educational world. I consider myself to be and also encourage everyone I meet to become and remain lifelong learners. Learning keeps the mind alert and the brain active. I started this blog to be a place where friends of all ages can gather to create, explore, discover, inquire and share wholesome, family-friendly creative projects using a variety of tools and materials. I will make use of my Cricut Maker, Cuttlebug, HP instant-ink ready color printer, Janome sewing machine, Close To My Heart papercrafting supplies, as well as my varied assortment of on hand home office and craft supplies. Although I will post the sources of any newly purchased supplies, you are not obligated in any way to purchase from these sites. My goal is to freely share my projects and discoveries with you. I hope you'll join me and share your learning too.

My favorite quotes

Why do we fear when we already know the ending? -- Kimberly Bower
Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt. Sing like nobody's listening; live like it's heaven on earth." -- Mark Twain
I enjoy engaging with readers, bloggers, paper-crafters, and other librarians. I like to check out other blogs and share ideas. Let share kindness among ourselves and with the great big world out there, one project at a time.

Thanks again for stopping by. I hope to get to know you better.

Blessings on your journey today,

Kimberly
