12 Days of Secret Santa, Day 5: From Kim to Kim

12 Days of Secret Santa, Day 5: From Kim to Kim

Today’s gift: The Entrepreneur’s Care Package

The Giftee: Kim Mayhew of Ant Farm Studio

Submitted by: Kimberly “Gypsy” LoSavio of Blogging with Gypsy

Here’s what Kimberly wants the world to know about Kim:

I’ve known Kim since 2008 ish — she joined a group that I moderated. She is a wonderful artist and her theme at the time was Ants. She still does the ants, but she is also very into the Day of the Dead art too (sugar skulls and all kinds of fun goodies). Kim is a beautiful soul and I adore her enormously.

Sadly a few weeks ago, she lost her husband Larry. He was very sick and just did not make it. Kim is trying very hard to keep things floating and she is surrounded by amazing and lovely friends who have done so much for her while Larry was sick and in the hospital and after his passing.

I love Kim’s Ants most and she is just such a wonderful artist. I’m picking her as my Secret Santa gift recipi-ANT (lolz — could not resist that one) because, even though she is a strong and amazing Diva, she has her breakdown moments and I know this would be a special surprise for her.

There really isn’t much else I can say. I wish I could do more for her. She is starting to get back in her studio so I am hoping to start seeing her wonderful art being added back in her ArtFire account so I can start leading peeps her way again. But for now .. I would like to do this small yet beautiful thing for her.

Do you know either of these Kims? If so, send them a note of congratulations (they’re BOTH getting today’s gift) and share what you know about them in a comment below.

And now it’s your turn to show someone how much you care — nominate them for a Secret Santa gift, too. We’ll be taking new nominations through end of the day tomorrow, (Friday, December 14, 2012).
