About

Hi there, I’m Kimberlyn and The Drummer’s Daughter is a new blog I started at the beginning of this year to give myself a space to express my creativity; in all forms. •
A little bit about myself, I am a 23 year old

who graduated college just 2 short years ago and even more recently, found a career path that I truly enjoy and was completely unexpected. •

In college, while studying for my BA (thinking for sure I’d stick with the graphic design program, lol) I happily stumbled across the Fibers department. I fell in love and finally found my place in the art world. •

I began crocheting in college and really enjoyed it and continued on after graduating as a hobby. •

With no true direction with where I wanted to go next in regards of a job, I took a retail management position at a boutique (customer service jobs are definitely not my jam lol). As much as I enjoy fashion and liked the people I worked with, the cons outweighed the pros and I just felt that it wasn’t where I was meant to be•

Somehow, on Facebook one day when I wasn’t even actively looking, I saw a post from a yarn company for a Design Position, literally only 10 minutes from where I live. •

I thought I was surely under qualified but I submitted my portfolio anyway, and sure enough somehow I landed the position. •
Now, I feel like I’ve entered a brand new world and there’s so much to learn. I’m so excited to share my ideas, inspiration and all things fibre related here, as well as whatever else I decide to dive into next. •

If you are wondering about my name, my late father was an incredible drummer who always pushed me to bravely try new things and express myself with no fear. I miss him dearly and taking this chance and putting myself out there is my way to always honor him. Before I am anything else, I am the drummer’s daughter. •

I can’t wait to dive in and show you what I love to do. 💕
