About time, huh?
Hello, I've been a member here for quite a few years but somehow have never got around to properly introducing myself.
My name is Jessika but I prefer Jess. It had been awhile since I did anything crafty and right now my life is hectic and crazy and overwhelming so I decided to take back my "me-time".
My family and I live in central Indiana about an hour north of Indianapolis. There is myself, my boyfriend, Chris, and my two boys. Jackson is 11 going on 30 and Ian is 7 1/2. We also have two furballs to keep our life interesting. Savannah is a ten year old German short-haired pointer who still acts like a puppy and is spoiled beyond rotten. Morgan is an eight year old gray and black striped tomcat.
Currently, I work full-time as an LPN in a long-term care facility, mostly with Alzheimer's/dementia resident. I am in school part-time working on my RN. On top of all that and running a family/household, I am also dealing with my mother recently being placed in a nursing home d/t her not being safe on her own any longer. We are also in the midst of a complete redecoration of our home.
I just started playing with my toys again and am trying to pop out of my SU bubble, so if you have any recommendations feel free to share. I just bought my first Sizzix product and am eager to try it out; it's an embossing machine shaped like a purse. I sold my Cuttlebug and accessories a few years ago after I divorced and have missed it ever since.
I scrapbook, make cards, and alter items. I have a Cricut Expression that doesn't get nearly as much love as it should from me. I've been a member of a mommy message board for 10+ years and they have a small scrapbooking sub-forum but it's not very active so I prefer here for my playtime.
If you see me online, feel free to say hello and don't hesitate to friend me on facebook if you'd like!
