Welcome Here!

Thanks for coming to see us.

Kim & Ink is a little stationery shoppe consisting of two of us, daughter and mother.

Daughter Kim is the reason we’re here.  Two years ago, she was diagnosed with High Performing ASD.  This answered a lot of our whys, but didn’t answer the hows.  How could we provide job security for the future?  How could she find fun challenges in life, and yet not be overwhelmed?

Kim is creative and loves making.  I, Dorothy, am the ink or paint or whatever medium is on the table.  I used to do oil and acrylic decorative painting, what used to be called tole painting.  So many saw blades, pitchers, crocks, scales didn’t escape my brushes, it’s a wonder people can still find undecorated farmhouse memorabilia.  When that lost popularity, I switched to sewing and writing.  Lately I’ve been practicing calligraphy and sign lettering.  So, since we both love to try new things…

somewhere along the way we had an aha moment.  Why not try to start a business, so we could keep on making and not look like craft hoarders?

Please enjoy this journey with us, as we follow our dandelion dreams (also known as learning curves?).
