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 (Which at the time wasn't unusual to me because I've always had a history of migraines; on top of having an 8 month old at that time with the usual NO SLEEP! Long story short, within hours I was sent home from work because I was not acting "myself" and went to the ER complaining of the "the worst headache of my life"! I was told the most life-changing news within 20 minutes of my ER 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 needless to say because I was already being transferred on to an ambulance stretcher that quick!

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 website), completed 33 radiation treatments, and took chemo treatments every single day for a year. I am completely blessed having surgery on 4/12/18 and walking out of the hospital on 4/16/18 with absolutely NO NEURO DEFICITS. I am a walking miracle literally! Again, hints to my website name https://www.57MiracleStreet.com/   

Here I am today! Nursing has always been my #1 passion. Being forced by my brain tumor ;) to take a "break" from Nursing to FIGHT through what is such a terrible disease that anyone and their loved ones who are affected by cancer wish they could cure. So, I decided to start making Arts & Crafts again because it's always eased my mind; which obviously is especially important and needed (physically and emotionally) at such a challenging time in my life. I hope that y'all 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 or that someone who has everything and you just can't figure out what to get them. I can make a variety of things - not just limited to wood signs (including: hand stained or hand painted crafts (on a variety of surfaces - basically anything you have in mind, we can make it work), vinyl projects (including: monogram on all things possible; or even make a custom shirt with my cricut and cricut heat press), paper crafts, wreaths for any occasion/season, wedding gifts for the new Mr. & Mrs. (even help with wedding décor if needed), sweet baby gifts (including: unique nursery items, & more! I love ALL things crafty. I love ALL things monogrammed. I love ALL things budget-friendly!

I know this is long; but I think it is important to get to know a person before you judge a book by it's cover! And, TRUST the person that you want to do business with,right?! These past few months has made me really appreciate the small things, and  I thank GOD everyday that I'm able to wake up another day to be with my girls (& everyone else special to me). 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 BLESSED & GRATEFUL to wake up each day and tell my story to the world and still show people that miracles do happen; so don't ever give up or let anyone else tell you otherwise or bring you down! I know that God has bigger plans for me, and he would not have gave me more than I can handle! Jeremiah 29:11 is my verse of the day everyday! & I KNOW without a doubt #IGOTTHIS 
 XoXo,
Amy Jo
