About Me


click badge
I have been a Elementary art teacher (K-8th) since 2002, I love my job! This year I am only working part time due to my daughter's medical issues. I have 3 dogs. Duke who I have had since I was 15 years old. He was my very first dog. He is lazy and has a great sense of humor. However, he is starting to lose his mind, due to age. This makes me VERY sad. We have tried several medications and other things to help him, but nothing seems to help. Azy a tough little black and white dog who thinks she is the queen of the house. She barks at the animals she sees on TV! Jo Jo a rat terrier. Jo Jo is... well kind of strange, but I love him. He follows me around everywhere I go. He is very loyal. Have one daughter(Jan.30,2007) named Crimson Melody. She was born 2 months early and has several medical issues (immature lungs, bad acid reflux, delays, etc.)she is a sweet little girl that tries very hard. I also have 3 step sons (Kaleb (21), Zach(16), Quade(15)) Married to my wonderful husband, Steve. He is my favorite person in the whole world.

My children we very lucky to receive 3 of Crimson's ATC and they are beautiful. We so much appreciated them. These were sent to us just as a gift as she did not draw us for the swap, but when I read your profile I said I was sad we were not going to get some of hers so she sent us some. It was very kind of you. She is one talented girl! Wish I could give you both 10 hearts!

breccamerie on Aug 18, 2008:
