Hello, to all of my readers! My name is Amber Newman. I’m the owner and creator of A Creative Newmie.
I’m living with Cystic Fibrosis, a life threatening, hereditary, lung disease. I received a life saving double lung transplant on March 13, 2007, and four months later, a kidney, from my very own mother. I also have cystic fibrosis related diabetes controlled with an insulin pump, a feeding tube (MIC-KEY G-tube) for necessary daily nutrients and wear cochlear implants due to hearing loss and deafness. Read about my life before and after my transplants.
My illness doesn’t stop me from achieving success. My ultimate goal is to inspire others to create art through life’s hardships. With hard work, determination, and a positive attitude, all things are possible when you believe.
Join me during my creative mission, while discovering a renewed and improved YOU! Follow along with me, to become better versions of yourselves or as I call it, a new me. Learn through tutorials, tips and techniques. My speciality is paper crafting. I enjoy making projects, using materials from my favorite designer, Tim Holtz. My dad is a graphic designer and inspires me to create my best work. No art is wasteful if you can say you put your time and effort into it.
My journey also includes book reviews, motivational messages, giveaways, and interviews from those I admire the most.
Join me as we all make a difference with our unique, creative, souls.
