Asking for help.

I’m looking for a few people with a large number of followers on social media. On Giving Tuesday, I want to let as many people possible know that JJ’s fundraising campaign is an option that day.

Social media can be here on FB, but also blogs, Instagram, Twitter, Snap Chat, etc…

We appreciate EVERYONE who shares his information but we’re hoping on Tuesday, to maximize the amount of people who see it that day.

I’m not going to determine how large large is for this, so if you think you can help on Tuesday, please let me know πŸ™‚

JJ’s Service Dog Flyer

25 11 2019

I’ve had a couple of people ask for something larger to hang in break rooms and such at work. So I made something. Love playing with digital art πŸ™‚

Hope it helps get the word out πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by!

Service Dog Outing!

23 11 2019

I got to hang out with this cutie for a little bit today πŸ™‚

He’s one of the Paws puppies in training to become an Autism Service Dog.

This morning the local crew of paws 4 autism dogs got together for pictures with Santa to help kick off the holiday season ❀️

My Saturdays are usually filled with my two little boys doing therapy (because autism). It was fun to do something different this morning πŸ™‚

Service Dog Thank You Cards

20 11 2019

Nice people should get thank you cards.

It’s a thing I believe. And I just so happen to like making thank you cards, so this works out for everyone πŸ˜€

I’ve had these designed for a while, but finally had time to sit down and put them together. It took a medical intervention to create the time lol. I’m at the sleep clinic with one of my daughters, so I was able to put the cards together while I wait with her. It’s been a LONG sleep study. We’re doing overnight and nap monitoring…I’m pretty sure we’ll head out by evening though πŸ™‚

In the mean time, a dozen cards were finished and my blog updated. They didn’t turn out how I designed them – my printer ran out of blue ink, but I made it work, because I have some people to get these out to πŸ™‚ If you’re one of our donors – THANK YOU SO MUCH! JJ’s so tickled by your willingness to help him. He even cried a little. You guys are making a little boy so very very happy. These cards are for you ❀️

Thanks for stopping by!


And as always, if you feel it in your heart to donate, or if you want to Β see more of JJ’s story, here’s the link to our donation page.

Craft Project 1


I Colored…It’s Been a While

14 11 2019

I needed to color and I always need thank you cards so I did this today. Combining the two means I was efficient πŸ˜‰

I found the frog sketch online, but no name with it, so I’m unable to give the credit I’d like to an amazing artist.

I printed it off and colored it using copics and pencils. I put together a digital background and cut the background and the colored frog panel out on my Silhouette then layered them onto a card.

I found this video over the summer and it was a big deciding factor in me reaching out to see if an autism service dog would even be possible for JJ. Nathan’s story was so similar to what JJ’s gone through. The bullying is why JJ’s homeschooled. His anxiety was too high to go back after the summer.

I’ve spent the last FIVE years trying to help him understand that my job is to keep him safe because I love him. I couldn’t send him back to an environment he didn’t feel safe in (because he wasn’t). It breaks my heart that this man had to endure so many years of the bullying like my son has faced.

But Nathan’s dog, Sylvia, gave me hope. Seeing how Nathan’s life turned around, just his over all quality of life skyrocketed, that’s what I want for my son.

With a service dog, JJ should be able to safely go to school again. And because there’s no better mix than kids and dogs, there should be plenty of opportunities for positive peer interaction…for FRIENDS.

The road to raising $18,000 seems long and impossible, but there’s hope and I’m holding on to that.
