Mellissa Kimberley

Mother, Artisan, Lifelong Learner

Mellissa Kimberley is a stay-at-home mother of four, wife of a B.C. public school teacher, and an avid crafter. She spent many years working with intellectually disabled adults and children, and volunteers in her children's schools and at church. She loves to curl up with a good documentary and some weaving, embroidery or knitting once the kids are tucked into bed.

In her spare time, she can be found re-creating the Middle Ages, pursuing a wide variety of crafts, or reading anything that will enrich her life. She maintains a blog that she tries to keep up-to-date, which is a challenge when life is as busy as it is in her house!
