New Scroll set

Hi everyone! This set if only for snag, I did not make it for my always list because my computer is not as strapping as it used to be lmao! So you can just snag the set here instead of going to Fotki to get it. Each of these tags has 58 frames and if I tried to make 60 of them my PC just may blow a gasket!!! ;) Have a great evening.

Hugs, Robyn

Link for blinkies for those who want it....

Here is a link to the place I find all my blinkies at.... So many have asked for it already that I figured I would just share it with everyone. She has a TON of them and they are so cute ;) Have fun with them if you use them! If any of you that come here and snag my tags have your own sites you share your work at please leave a link, I would LOVE to see your work also!

Spring Gorjuss tag

I am loving making Spring tags and they seem to be going around :) I love all the bright colors you can use to make them! I wanted to clarify to anyone who may comment on my little animations I have been adding to my tags. I found a site that has thousands of them and I get them and use them already animated. So like in this tag I used the butterflies and the I love spring blinkie. There are SO many talented people in and around PSP and graphics and when I find something new, or discover something like the bling tag I made last I just go with it lol! I have had a few people ask me how I made the blings, and that is a good question ;) I have tutorials but honestly have never really used tutorials. I am more hands on and need to learn it on my own to retain it lol. So what I do is figure out what it is that creates the effect I am looking for and I just play around with it, until it turns out to be something I like. If any of you who also make tags would like the link to the site I found all the animations at just let me know and I will send it to you ;) You could spend alot of time there looking at all the different ones there ;)

Click on the link to pick up your set. Make sure to snag the hello and then also the hugs with your name on it. Please make sure to leave a comment either here or in Fotki when you do pick them up.

A couple questions answered also....

Sometimes when I am just making a note or welcoming someone I use "welcome" tags for the entry. They are snagged welcomes. I always will put P.S. This is a snagged welcome, these tags I cannot add names to because they are not mine ;)

Others have asked where to leave me comments. It truly does not matter it can be here or at Fotki for requests for anything. I check them both the same.

I will be filling requests tomorrow and posting them for the last week :)

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Happy Birthday to??..........(Couple swear words)

Photobucket

To.............. Me ;) I am officially 33 years old. The things that you discover and realize about yourself in your 30's is truly amazing! You start growing from a "young woman" to a "woman". At least I feel like I do anyways lol. Someone correct me if I am wrong ;)

****I just realized many of you who visit my Creative Corner probably have never been to my main page. I created that journal, with the intention to write about my up's and down's and my journey learning about my son's disorder's. It ended up being used for a very different purpose, just my whole life journal with lots of pictures. If you want to know about my son's medical problems and more you can go to first entry in my main journal and read the first few entries. If you do not want to read this entry period that is ok also ;)  Just wanted to let any of you know who were wondering what it is that my son has...There is entries that will explain it in full detail ;) **********

Either way if I am a few years off, or right on the money sometimes the older I get I feel like " I am woman, hear me roar!" applies to alot more aspects of my life. Maybe I am just becoming a bigger bitch?? lol. But from what I have heard and seen over the years I would definately have to say I am proud to be a bitch! I can use it at just the right times and people know I am not playing around lmao.

My son's Pediatrician said something really interesting to us not long ago when we took Josh to see him because we needed a letter for school signed. (Going to give you a little background as to what the letter was and why)......When we enrolled Josh into this district last summer we had meetings with the whole team of Special Education staff here. We every single year have issues with someone as far as his schooling goes. We meaning, his dad, his sister, and myself (the 3 of us that have lived with him for 9 years) know Josh and his daily routines better then any other person around. We were told when my son was born and for the first year of his life during the many times we were told to call everyone we knew, because Josh was not going to make it through the night. That IF he made it he would basically be a vegetable, never talk, never walk, never see, never hear, basically his quality of life was going to be very poor. We never gave up hope.  It ripped our hearts into pieces over and over again but we kept hoping. We learned very early into it that WE were our son's voice and we did end up challenging his doctor's more than one time. And 9 years later we were accurate in the things we did challenge. Had we have done it their way Josh would have a voice box right now and never truly needed it. It got the point at Children's Hospital in our case that instead of just ONE time saying to us "we do not know" they guessed.

We have spent 9 years being very (and I mean very) consistent with everything and he today is not near where a 9 year old should be, but he is able to do alot of things on his own. And it is ALL stuff we were told many times he would never do!!??!! His world is different then your's or mine, but never the less he is happy, he is able to without talking show us in his own ways that we have taught him over the years what he needs. We have a ton of different things that we have figured out together...All of us..... learning what worked and didn't work to say get my son to take his jacket off, or not fight us and I mean literally fight sometimes us to brush his teeth, his hair, ect.

So then we take Josh to school and for starters he cannot be mainstreamed. He never has been and probably never will be. He has a 1on1 assistant the whole time he is there. But the break in Josh's schedule from home to school, the two different routines has made things so much worse many times. For him because it is to much for him. He has off days and on days. Us as his parents can tell just by the look on his face when he is going to have an off day. Those days no matter WHAT his school tries to teach him, he will not be receptive. Is it because we didn't wish he could learn a ton at school?? No, it is the opposite. We want him to progess as much as he can, we have just learned to be very real about what will possibly work, versus either make him take 2 steps backwards, or just not respond period.

We were told for the first 7 years of Josh's life that he was deaf. By hospitals, and his doctor's. He took one test that we were told that there was NO way he could fail it unless he had significant hearing loss. We told them they were wrong....WHY? Because we have been talking to Josh since he was a newborn, Josh could hear us and we KNEW it. They still gave him hearing aids, and a Auditory trainer anyways. WELL about a year ago we had him retested by the same woman who told us he was deaf and who also worked for the school district we were in and they repeated the same test and guess what? He had failed the test by choice. We told them that IF Josh did not feel like responding there was nothing they could do to get him to respond and well we were right.  She was in awe. I "guess" I was wrong is what she said. Here is the test I am speaking of.....

  • visual reinforcement audiometry (VRA) - a test where the child is trained to look toward a sound source. When the child gives a correct response, the child is "rewarded" through a visual reinforcement such as a toy that moves or a flashing light. The test is most often used for children between six months to two years of age.
  • This is getting really long and I had a point lol!

    But I do need to explain quickly what led us to my son's Pediatrician's comment he made to us.

    So we enrolled him in school. We were very straight forward about everything from the beginning. We all agree'd that Josh would benefit from starting school later in the day instead of being there all day. We all agree'd that communication was the number one priority. We have been threw this every year with every team he has. We have tried the PECS board. We have told them unless it is a picture he can relate to, meaning his stuff that he uses every single day he would care less about the little computer bit mapped images. Yet what happens every year? I make him a board at home with his own stuff and laminate it and velcro it. His school sees them every time. And then his therapist will come with the schools with bit mapped images he could care less about. So then I have to stop and ask myself and his teachers. How on the same page are we really?? We have had teacher's lie to us in the prior years and say they taught Josh something and even wrote it into his IEP's that they did and it was totally false.

    So this year we started the late start day because they noticed at a very certain time everyday he was ready to come home. All he did from that point on was cry, gripe, hit, pinch, try to leave the room, grab his backpack and try to get someone to take him out of the classroom. He seems to have a more progressive day when his day is shortened. So his teacher who is pregnant with twins (who we happened to LOVE) had to take her maternity leave for the rest of the school year and was replaced by a man who met after he took her place. He wanted this doctor's note for his records saying that his doctor agree'd on the shortened day. Which was fine but it is strange he has been going to school there since September and now in March this peice of paper is so important.

    There were other things that didn't sit right either. We ended up writing his new teacher a LONG email and we were very honest with him and pretty much filled him in on everything we say every year to all of his teachers.  A meeting was called, we sat down with about 6 people and a hour long meeting turned into a 4 hour meeting. Not one of us got out of the school til well after 8 in the evening. We left that meeting thinking we were all on the same page again for his therapist to come to our house a week later with the SAME wrong PECs board she did again. AFTER listening to us talk for 4 hours at the meeting. 

    SOOOO long story shortened as much as I possibly can without adding so many important details. When we got him in to see his Pediatrician he of course before even asking why he needed to sign the paper said he had NO problem signing it and that he knew from all the years that his father and I know better than anybody what is best for Josh. He knows that we are very able to speak our mind when it comes to Josh.

    He said to us "You know I wonder if one reason you run into problems with some doctors or teachers is because you two intimidate them?" He then said " Please don't take this as an insult, it is actually the exact opposite. But you two come off with an attitude that many may think your questioning thier judgement. They think because they went to school for X amount of years and have read many books that they know more then either one of you. And when they realize that you are not going to back down on your opinion then they get offended and may become harsh with you"

    We thanked him for being honest with us. It kind of put things into perspective if that is the case. Does it mean that we are going to ever change? Not a chance. It just made me think.

    WOWWEEE, this started out talking about " I am woman, hear me roar" to a small book lmao! I am going to post this entry in both journals because it is my birthday lol. IF it is to much for my always list to read no worries ;) You come to My Creative Corner for tags not nags!!! lmao

    Well it is late so even if I feel like I could keep typing and typing some more I should say goodnight to all of you.

    Love you and hugs, Robyn

    I did not check this entry for errors. So I hope it isn't too bad! ;)

    A note for everyone on my Always list to read....

    Photobucket

    Good afternoon everyone! I just wanted to make an entry quick to answer some questions that have been coming my way through emails and comments. I will answer them all here so that all my newer ladies on my always list get the answers also.

    When I make tags for my always list I will always put in my subject line "Always list". When I make my hello/hug sets and scrolls I always make them for my always list. I do not make every tag (like my Gorjuss tags) for all of you everytime I make one. I do however, take requests for any of them. I also will randomly make a tag and make one for my always list.

    Noone is being left out I promise ;) Make sure if you think you are to check in my Always list folder for tags with your name on it. You will see in that album that I make a new folder for each set I make for all of you.

    I am doing my requests about once a week now because there are so many. I used to do them daily but it has just gotten to be to much time wise. So if you have requested something your name is sitting right here in front of me in my trusty notebook lol. If it is not done yet I will get to it sooner than later. As a matter of fact I will be filling requests tonight or tomorrow for this last week and there will be quite a few of them.

    And as I have always said if I somehow miss your request please just let me know and I will get it done as soon as possible ;) I have noticed alot of people who make tags and share them and open them up for requests do a time limit on the requests and close it after X amount of time. I have not done that so far because I want newcomers to be able to look through my old tags and have a name added if they want to. But because of that and the amount of visitors I have now the requests are not getting done as quickly as they used to, and my sets are about once a week also versus all the time.

    I am still trying to figure out who is here and not here. My last set I made has 27 comments on it and I have 52 on my always list. Almost half of them are unaccounted for. I love making them for everyone who is here but would love to make sure that all 52 of them are getting picked up. I told everyone I was going to give it a couple weeks and then go back and look to see who is here and plans to stay and who is not picking up there tags. If some of you do pick them up, but don't leave a comment please let me know and please start leaving a comment so I do know your here ;)

    I think that is all for now.

    Hugs, Robyn

    P.S I just saw another question going through my emails. How do you add my journal to your alerts? On the top of this page there is a box on the right hand side that says Alerts. Click that, then you will click entry alerts. It should say my journal has been added to your alerts. Hopefully that helps you ;) If you have any more questions just send me an email and I will answer the best I can.

    Checking in.....

    New set for my always list & a note to you all (Please read ;)

    Hi everyone here is a new set for you all ;) To my newer ladies, make sure to snag the hello and then also the hugs with your name on it. I would like to do a head check so to speak of my always list. I have 52 on my list and want to make sure that all of you still are here or want to be here. I am asking because this is alot of tags to make and I have looked in some of my albums comments at Fotki for my always list and there is not near enough to equal 50 comments that all the tags have been picked up. I know that some of us have real life that prevents us from being online all the time which is why I have been watching my comments and hoped that they would all go up letting me know that all the tags I make for my always list do eventually get picked up. But after a month of watching I do not see them all getting picked up. So if by any chance some of you are getting them and not leaving a comment please just start leaving a comment so I do not remove you from my always list. I have always been very fair about requests here in sharing my work with everyone. I have never put a deadline on any of my tags, and I try to make a set for my always list at least once a week. I want to be able to keep getting requests filled at a decent pace, and I want to be able to continue having my always list and making cool things for you all to share. I just need to make sure that all 52 of you are still coming by and picking them up when I do take the time to make them ;) Please just leave a quick comment here with this entry and I will check it in a couple weeks to see who all is still here. Thanks a ton all of you ;)

    Hugs, Robyn
