About Koko

photo (79)

I am the unplanned child to a woman so strong. A sister to brothers. A dreamer. A writer. A mother. A lover. Ninja in the dark. Star shaped in a very square world. Teacher to eager ears.  My learning desire is quenchless.  On the outside looking in.  Not interested in the fake. Wizard when I can find my wand. Fascinated by fireflies. Fighter of underdogs. Small, but mighty. Believer in superheroes. Ecstatic to be different. Provider of nourishing meals, sassy when needed, quirky at best. Epic concoction maker. Boredom doesn’t exist.

I am super excited to be going on-line with atkokosplace.  How blogging came to be….My tech-y/social media savvy kids kept on telling me with each finished project I did, every bottle of lotion I created, people i’ve helped, “Mom, you need to blog about that…” I had no clue what blogging was! Through their encouragement and help and belief in my many works… Thank you kids.  I hope I make you proud.

DIY has been a part of me since forever!  I’ve always enjoyed working with my hands.  I can remember as a little girl making a car that was just my size out of a cardboard box.  I even outfitted it with a rear view mirror and personalized license plate!  I made all the furniture for my Barbies and when GI Joe’s came into the picture I sewed countless tiny tents and sleeping bags.  The first time I started working with wood was in the fifth grade.  I made Japanese sandals out of scrap lumber.  I was fascinated and hooked!

Atkokosplace you will find all kinds of do it yourself awesomeness, where I show you how I have re-purposed – up-cycled  items not thought of, reusing and bringing to life something that may otherwise be tossed out, and other clever-unique-useful ways to see everyday objects. Of course there will be NEW things being built and sewed and glued…well you get the idea! Creating functional and thoughtful spaces for myself and others is another extension of how I love and care for the people in my life. The same goes for every meal I make and every tincture I come up with, love always goes into the mix. And I hope to share them with you! There will be all kinds of “life stuffs” tossed in too, after all, this blog is a little about me; what I like, what moves me, what makes me think, what makes me sigh and what makes me wonder. I imagine this blog will continue to evolve as life evolves…

Until then, I’d love to have you follow along on my journey.

❀ Please like, follow and share. I do appreciate your support! All the best, Koko❀
