Be Brave, Be Fearless! What do you know about stroke?

One of the best aspects of my career as a pharmacist is the relationships forged with my patients. I practice with the goal of improving lives. I want to know how they feel- about their meds, their day-to-day life, their pharmacy experience. And I work very hard to commit those things to memory, remembering their medications, regimens, and concerns.

As a crafter, I'm able to let my patients know that we (my pharmacy team) care about them through the cards I create. I used my homework assignment from Summer Card Camp 2 to do just that for a special patient who recently suffered a stroke and is having a hard time adapting to changes in his life post-stroke and rehabilitation.

Butterfly Thank You's & GIVEAWAY

My aunt and uncle in Kentucky are so awesome! They sent me a special birthday card with a sentiment for their favorite niece (ok, so I added the favorite part). I wanted to create a special thank you card to send them. I think butterflies are always beautiful and this color combo was a sure fire winner.

I decided I could multi-task and complete both pre-class challenges for Summer Card Camp 2 at Online Card Classes. Side note- if you are in to making cards, these classes are really inspiring and full of techniques.

Here's the card I made. I hope they like it!

Eye to Eye with a Dragonfly

Everyone who knows me well, knows, and I mean KNOWS that I don't do spiders, insects, bugs, even ants in many cases! 

Flashback---> I was a freshman in high school and it was a Saturday morning while I was watching cartoons (don't judge me), I noticed a trail of ants from the back patio door leading next to the sofa on which I was relaxing. I jumped up and ran to wake up my younger brother to tell him he had to come get rid of them! I was terrified!

Now, I'm eye to eye with a dragonfly!

Oh Flower

Spring is my favorite time of the year. It just seems that global warming continues to push this bright and breezy season later in the year or dismisses it all together. But, with my first days off work in a while, I was able to spend some time with Mother Nature and grab a few snapshots of Spring's beauty.
