My name is Sandy and I live in Colorado. I believe that a person can have many talents and many dreams. I am an artistic creative person and love exploring my creative side. Please read below to my two current passions.
Art and creating an ebook cookbook that is dairy, soy, gluten, oat, and potato free. There is a reason for what we do, a reason for what drives us, and a reason for what makes us strong.
Please read about both of my journeys in the sections below.

ABOUT MY ARTWORK
Portraits | Wildlife | Still Life

Some of my Saving Up To Get List
  1. Air Conditioning Installed $6000
  2. Art Projector the Artograph Inspire 1000 $800

Something you wouldn't know... Also a oneeyed artist with Hashimoto’s Disease that is on a journey of finding the right foods to eat and to avoid that works for me. What do I mean by one eye? On the back of my left eye I have scar tissue from strands becoming undone and causing scar tissue which in turn has made it difficult for me to see out of my left eye well. If I close my right eye or if anything blocks my right eye, everything is bent, out of focus, and almost like a patch of fuzz where should be what I am trying to see, but thank the gods I have a good right eye. ;-)



Besides that I am just like you with the dream of being able to do the things I love on a full time basis without the pressure, stress, and nut cracker of this demanding world.

Furthermore, your support not only means more time to work on my art, it also helps me to buy the tools that I need to develop my skills as an artist, art supplies like brushes, paint, and canvas, but it also means more content! Don’t forget the most important thing, AC! With your help I can have AC installed and this will automatically make me feel like painting more. Did I mention it gets up to 82 inside at 6am!?!  With your help, I'll soon be busy painting more and creating more and honing my skills. And that is exactly what this Colorado artist wants to be doing!


ABOUT MY EBOOK
 I have a new found passion for health and healthy food alternatives. I have Hashimoto’s and with that comes a vast amount of eating restrictions. With Hashimoto's I must maintain a very strict diet or I feel horrible for days, sometimes weeks. Back in January I decided to make a change and stop feeling sick all the time. I cut out dairy, (Lactose intolerant) gluten, soy, nightshades, oats, and white rice. I do my best to try to avoid these things. I noticed if I am craving sweets that is impossible to find healthy alternatives ANYWHERE. If you do find something that is gluten free it has dairy or one of my other no's. It is super frustrating. I want to pig out like the rest of the world once in a while on a sweet treat that isn't going to upset my digestive tract or cause me to feel extremely lethargic, bloated, and blah for a week.I am working on an ebook. I have come up with 18 really good recipes, but I have a long way to go. I want to create an amazing book with dozens of recipes. This is taking some time because I personally am trying out the recipes, some times several times to tweak the ingredients before it goes in the book.

My baked goods will be Sandy Friendly. That means no dairy, gluten, soy, potato starch, chemicals, & or oats. Some will even be pure vegan.

Instead of traditional flours and sweeteners, all the recipes will have healthy ingredients like coconut flour, almond flour, flaxseeds, coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, and coconut sugar. Some will have eggs and some totally vegan.

The reason I am on Patreon is to get the support I need to buy the supplies so I can keep experimenting with new creations that can go in my ebook. The supplies for healthier ingredients is SUPER pricy especially when you are on a mission to create something fantastic. You go through a lot of ingredients. Lots of trial and error and I just can't afford the constant supplies. The flours, sugars, etc are expensive and come in small amounts, which would be totally ok if I was making a recipe once.. but with experimenting with new ways to make something and make it taste good... things add up and I am not rich. I am a creative... I do websites and artwork for a living.

Your support will not only go towards the supplies but hopefully in the long run my book will benefit people with various diseases who have been suffering for awhile and they will be able to enjoy a treat occasionally without feeling physically ill. It is no fun to feel sick all the time. I have had Hashimoto's disease almost half my life and I am done with being sick and pretending to be fine just because I have a sweet tooth.
