HOW WE GOT HERE & ABOUT OUR BRANDING
HEY Y'all! My name is Amy Jo Eskew! I have two beautiful & spoiled girls who are absolutely my world & biggest fans! I am a Registered Nurse; however, I have not been able to work due to a life-changing diagnosis 4/10/18. I went to work the morning of the 10th with a migraine. Long story short, within hours I was sent home from work because I was not acting "myself" and went to the ER hours later complaining of the "the worst headache of my life"! I was told the most life-changing news within 20 minutes of my visit … "You have an 8cm mass in your brain and you need to be transferred ASAP to another facility for emergency brain surgery"! I didn't have time to think of anything else except "NOPE - NOT TODAY, I have to go home to my girls". Well I never got to go home on that note!
Since I have been home, I've had to adjust to my “new life”; as well as be a fighter not only for myself, but for my girls, family, and loved ones. I have survived emergency brain surgery (with 57 staples in my head … (hints to the name of my other website), completed 33 radiation treatments, and still continue with my chemo treatments every month. I am completely blessed having surgery on 4/12/18 and walking out of the hospital on 4/16/18 with absolutely NO DEFICITS. I am a walking miracle literally!

SOOO … Here I am today! If I can't do one of my passions (Nursing), I decided to get back into Arts & Crafts because it's always eased my mind; especially at a time like this when it is needed the most. I hope that ya'll enjoy my Arts & Crafts just as much as I enjoy making them. If there are any customized items that you would like, please message me and we will come up with something perfect & unique that fits your needs. I can do a variety of things - not just limited to wood signs (such as: hand-painted crafts, vinyl & paper crafts, wedding & baby gifts, wreaths, etc.).
I also have my facebook page called “Chalkin' in the South with Amy Jo” because I make & sell Chalk Couture; which is a new company that began June 2018. If you are a fan of Kirkland's & Hobby Lobby, then you will not be disappointed to check out my site. If you are interested in knowing more about Chalk Couture just message me and please check out my page & SHARE! Who doesn’t like giveaways right?! http://www.facebook.com/chalkcouture.com/amyjoeskew
These past few months has made me really appreciate the small things, and thank GOD everyday that I'm able to wake up another day to be with my girls. The power of prayers from my family, loved ones, friends, and the amazing support from the community has definitely went a long way in my recovery and keeping my spirits up; as well as very much appreciated. My diagnosis has changed my whole outlook on life in general. I have a long journey ahead of me; however, my story is not over … it's actually just beginning! I am beyond thankful to be here another day to tell my story to the world and get to do things that I am passionate about! I know that God has bigger plans for me, and he wouldn’t give me more than I can handle! Jeremiah 29:11 is the verse I live by since my surgery!
