Hello from the United States of America from the great State of Nebraska "The Good Life". This is our states motto. I am 41 years old. I am the mother of three children (25,21,16) and the wife to my high school sweetheart for 21 years. I have always been interested in Art.
I began an Art Therapy Class for Cancer Survivors and caretakers back in 2009. I lost my mother to her battle with metastatic breast cancer in December 2009, 5 months after being diagnosed. My regrets was the inability in spend each waking hour with her while she was in Hospice. I had this belief that this happens to other people and somehow I would be spared. My mother was my best friend, mentor...she was my "everything"! That is when I have took an oath to become a stronge advocate to preach the importance of getting your mammograms yearly! I suddenly love the color pink and the use of the breast cancer ribbon, whether it is in the form of my jewlery or the pink shoes that I own. I do this to generate a coversation with people. I than let them know why I feel it is so important to have an annual check up, breast exam and to strongly advocate doing monthly self breast exams..most importantly to just know your body!
I am fluent in English. I want to learn Spanish. I love taking art classes and recently have taken calligraphy and an altered book class. I am very interested in Zentangles. I have signed up to become a demonstrator for Stampin' Up! I love to create and do scrapbooks! I must not utilize my time efficiently because the only pages I have completed were the ones I have done at a scrapbooking club. So, if you make homemade postcards I would truly treasure them and add them to my iHanna postcard swaps collection.
