Kim McDougal, Crocheter, Knitter, Crafter

Hi! I’m Kim and I admit it…I’m a crafter!!

A big time crafter! LOL! I’ve worked in various industries throughout my career, but I think this is the best place I’ve ever been in. I wanted for a long time to move from graphic design into an art form that I could do with my hands so I prayed for years for that to happen. Finally, I’m in my element and I’m so thankful to God for that. It didn’t happen until we left the east coast and came here to the west coast that I found my niche. It was a crafting class the women of my church formed and at the end of year sell all we make to support the women’s ministry. It started with crocheting and that is still my biggest love. Now, I’ve grown into other fabric arts like knitting, making snowmen out of socks, paper crafts, and hopefully eventually sewing tote bags! I’ll be learning that soon!

I also love FASHION.

Modest fashion with a twist…I love style, but still I want to look feminine and presentable for The Lord Jesus is my main objective. So, I created “Styling Modest”, a fashion blog to share what I like and how I like to dress.

Finally, but not lastly is my love for Jesus and so “Growing Up in Grace” is a blog about my faith and my daily life endeavors to live more for Him and to draw more closely to Him. It has been my faith all these years that has gotten me through many a challenge. And, I’m thankful to God for bringing me to this place and being with me everyday. You can jump to any of these sites from this page so let me introduce you to each one! Thanks for visiting!

Kim is Crocheting

Kim's Crochets and Knits
I learned to crochet at age 12, but I remember only making shawls. It was the only pattern I knew how to do and so I didn’t learn much else. I didn’t know how to read patterns and so I quit crocheting for a long time. After moving to the west coast and joining the women’s ministry at my church, I learned so much more and even how to read patterns. Now, I sell in my Etsy store and I make items each year to sell at our Women’s Ministry Christmas bazaar. I just recently started a crochet line of baby dresses called “Too Cute” Crochet baby dresses.

 

Styling Modest.

Styling Modest, my Kind of Fashion Blog
My fashion blog that I love to share what clothes I like and beauty/hair ideas too. Hopefully any Christian lady or anyone who likes to look modest and beautiful at the same time can find inspiration from. I actually grew up as a tomboy, serious tomboy, never playing with girls and I wore t-shirt and jeans all through high school. It wasn’t until I got into college level that I began to embrace being a lady. I quickly started playing with clothes and accessories and at one time, I owned hundreds of shoes! However, I never have had a wardrobe like I do now. I had work clothes but when it came to casual or formal, I didn’t pieces to wear. It’s funny how my life has changed since moving here. I had to rebuild my entire wardrobe and 80% of it came through a free clothing place and the pieces I got are like new and I’ve been able to build outfits for day, evening, formal, casual, business, and even just hanging around the house. I’m so blessed!

 

Growing Up in Grace.Growing Up in Grace
The heart and soul of my life and how much I love Jesus and want to learn more and more about His awesome grace. I gave my life to Jesus at age 25 and since then I’ve been through a lot but never have I felt lost since becoming a born-again Christian. I was delivered from manic depression, heavy metal, fear, sex, clubbing, and even the years that I backslid after my first husband’s death. The Lord never left me! I talk about the lessons I’ve learned and am still learning and my goal is to inspire and uplift my readers. I want them to know being a Christian doesn’t mean you’re perfect, it just means you’ve been forgiven and you’re being perfected by Jesus every day.
