Meet Kim and Ken

Hi! I’m Kim! Nice to meet you! Read on to learn more about me and wonderful hubby!

If I were to describe myself in one word, I would say I’m a creator. I love to make things whether it be a handmade card or on my computer. Creating brings me so much joy. Even though, I don’t have formal art training, and my educational background is in business, I have always leaned towards the creative side.

My Corporate skills earned me many jobs, yet something was missing but I wasn’t quite sure what it was. I lost my first husband to cancer and although, my faith in Christ was strong, it was a tough road to travel yet God saw me through it. I ended up moving to Florida and while working as a word processor, my life began to change. I learned graphic design on the job and loved it. The two things I was good at were beginning to come together…creating graphics and computers and eventually transitioned to web design.

I enjoy creating graphics but, I really wanted to take my artwork to another level. I married again in 2001 and in 2012, my hubby, Ken, and I moved to the beautiful Oregon Coast, I got my chance to craft and create again! I do graphic/web design full time for a day job but in the evenings, I create for myself!

Ken is such a blessing as he supports my efforts and helps advertise my card shop. He owns two eBay shops, runs my handmade greeting card business and is such a creative genius! He’s a professional photographer with 20+ years in the industry. He started in portraiture, weddings and then to stock photography. He offers some of his work on kenmcdougal.com

As a maker and creator, I feel like God has empowered me to help put back some kindness into this world which we need. I hope you find some lovely artwork in my Shop that you can easily download and use in your own projects or to hang on your walls!

Blessings and HUGS!
