Hello, I’m Kymona Tracey. Who am I, you ask? I am a woman who never slows down and loves it. Yes… I am the energizer bunny’s sister! I just keep going and going (which is something that I am working on if you follow my weekly wishes on my blog). I am a single mother of two beautiful children who are 8 years apart. My 22-year-old son is a true self-made jock who plays every sport you can think of! He is off at college, learning how to be independent. My 13-year-old daughter is a real-life princess who loves anything crafty and girly and absolutely hates anything related to sports. Talk about yin and yang! …but I love it!!
Besides running from one activity to another with them, I work full time at a hospital (public health background), facilitate a reading group at work, teach high school students on the weekends, and have an immense love of learning new things. I’ve taken classes in photography, web design, knitting, scrapbooking, and card-making. I love them all; however, my true passion is card-making. I was introduced to card making back in 2004 and haven’t turned back since. I started out as a hobbyist, just making cards for family and friends. People were always ecstatic when they received a card from me. What they did not know was that it made me feel just as special to make a card for them. This passion pushed me into teaching card-making classes at work with a couple of coworkers who wanted to learn how to make projects for their families.
In September 2013, I made a big leap and created my blog, Kreative Kymona. Besides being a mom, I think that this has been one of my most rewarding accomplishments. Just being able to share with my world community makes life so worthwhile!
Papercrafting has been my world for the past 14 years. Things changed for me last year (2017) when my daughter and I took a couple of sewing classes at the Pinners Conference in Atlanta. I instantly fell in love with the fabric and the sewing machine. I love the feeling of creating projects that someone will call their own.
So, I now create cards, scrapbook pages, baby tethers, burp cloths, and bags!!
