Hi, my name is Kimberly Funk and I love to create. I am 32 years old, married and mother of one little fun loving boy. I get this creating bug from my mom, when I was little she taught me how to sew and crochet. She always had tons of crafty projects daily for us to do.
At one point a few years ago, I had no idea how to read a crochet pattern much less how to figure out tension on a sewing machine. My mom had only taught me how to use my skills to create designs without patterns which I love her for:) Thanks Mom! I basically knew all the crochet stitches I just didn't know their names or how to read their abbreviations. I found a really cute crochet pattern for slippers but, I didn't know how to read it. I scoured Youtube for answers! I can proudly say within a year I was cranking out more projects and loading up on yarn then I think my husband was ready for. Needless to say my son was ecstatic with all the yarn in the house. I caught him a few times when he was just a baby pulling it behind him like a pet. He still now loves to play with it while i make my projects:)
I have taken off from there exploring the world of blogging and being able to share my knowledge, ideas and talent to the world.
Hooking Rainbows is my blog site where I share my DIY projects with crochet, sewing and other interests.
I also have an Etsy shop where I have finished projects and custom orders available for purchase.

I hope you enjoy taking the creative plunge with me!
