About Me

I am first and foremost a mom to an high functioning autistic 10 year old boy. He could teach a college course on American Military history, but he just learned to tie his shoes. He has the intelligence of a 60 year old smarty pants and the emotional understanding of a first grader. He challenged everything I thought I knew about life and people, but I'm glad for it.

I am a wife to an Arnold-Chiari survivor. The hubby's skull was too small for his big old brain, so the doctors took out some of the skull. He's still recovering, but the operation saved his life. Only a small percentage of adults survive into their 40s with this condition, so we are blessed. He'll need some more surgery to tweak the first one and maybe take out more skull, but had he not had a compassionate, caring doctor, he would have been dead by now. We are truly blessed!

While I'm a busy girl, I do enjoy a few hobbies. One of them is writing-- I've been a guest author on a few autism blogs and I write a blog HERE. My newest project is designing a product line to raise money for autism charities. I am a firm believer in paying it forward...

Also, I scrap. I feel into the world of scrapping accidentally. It started six years ago when I started making blinkies, then custom blinkies, then sig tags...now I love to scrap!! It's addicting!! My educational background is Fine Art, with a focus on design. I find working with computer keeps my work area and clothing from getting paint stained. I love learning to do new things with LOs, I love all the artistry and styles, and creating unique memories. One day I'd actually like design kits, but that's a project for the future.

I am a die hard Paint Shop Pro fan. I remember the first version way back when... Now I'm using PSP X4! I also have a Wacom Bamboo tablet that I am absolutely in love with!! My camera sucks, simply put so maybe next Christmas Santa will bring me a new one.
