Hi! My name is Sandra Showalter
Also called Momma and Darlin'. I love my life as a mommy and wife. The names and the opportunity of living abroad have inspired a wannabe hobbyist. I would love to freelance as a blogger, photographer, website designer, newsletter and brochure creator and editor. My goal is to allow others to focus on their business while they let me in charge of the FUN items.
The Li'L Things About Me
- I have two little guys and one big guy that means the world to me.
- I lived in Dubai for 5.5 years, but am now residing in the Houston, Texas area.
- I admire photography of styles.
- Before kids, I enjoyed playing MMORPGs (Massivly Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games)
Skill Sets and Tools
Creative Writing: Use Microsoft Publisher to portray a sililoquy of words that makes sense to few, or to many; creates emotions, feelings, and memories that can only be told with pictures. Sometimes I'll use GIMP 2.0 to create the backgrounds or header images for newsletters and brochures.
Blogging: Wordpress started my journey as a blogging tool. It is very broad and has many options. Almost any desired look or feature can be found or created. There is so much knowledge to be gained through researching for correct information to a story.
Photography: An ameteur eager to practice, always researching techniques both in using the camera tricks and in editing RAW images in Lightroom.With some willing participants; I know that I can quickly move into the beginner stage.
Website Design: A newbie skill that has made me (as my husband puts it) adept at researching, investigating, and absorbing new and old skills for various applications. In other words; I am not afraid to use the resources at my fingetips in order to educate myself and perfect the end results; yet keep almost everything original to my own work. Using Expression Web 4 , a new blank website, Google to the fullest extent, I learned and used CSS and HTML to build (most of) my personal website.
