Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Fall-a-licious!

DIY Day @ ASPTL


It's diy day at Kimba's. I just had to share my front porch with you. I am so loving having my door painted black. The fall colors really pop off of this door!

I kept the same berry wreath that I had on my door before, but I added a $4 leafy vine from Hobby Lobby and some pumpkins and a bright Orange bow. I got out my handy dandy hot glue gun and went to town. Here is what my wreath looks like now:

The little pumpkins were on sale, so I decided to try to make a topiary. I used the bamboo stick that came with one of my scarecrows, cut holes, in the bottoms of the pumpkins and put them on the stick. I added a few leaves too and then put it in my pot:


I had to add a few scarecrows. I'm not into the scary decorations, but I do like pumpkins and scarecrows:

This little guy need an orange bow:


And I've had this little guy for several years. I always enjoy setting him on my front porch:


Here is the finished porch:


Happy Fall, Ya'll!
