Hello! My name is Jessica Marijane and I am a freelance graphic designer, a work-from-home mom of two young girls, a wife, a sister, and a daughter. I use cloth diapers most of the time with my baby. I breastfed my oldest until she was three years old. I am still breasting my baby. I once tried an all natural home birth that ended with an emergency c-section. I am missing a common antigen in my blood which complicates my pregnancies to a fairly ridiculous degree. The disorder I have is called Neonatal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia (NAIT) or Maternal-Fetal Alloimmune Thrombocytopenia. My second baby cost the insurance company around $500,000. Thank God for insurance! My blog will eventually have stories from my pregnancies and births on it. I hope to give some advice on cloth diapering, natural baby care products, and even the recipe for the homemade laundry detergent I use to save money.
I also love basset hounds. I had two of them that passed away a few years ago. We adopted two more AKC basset hounds after that. I love big, floppy ears. My favorite sport to watch is football. I’m a Colts fan!
I work as a freelance graphic designer under the business name Hounder Bounder Graphics. You can find out more about my professional life at www.hounderbounder.com. I have a Bachelor Degree in Computer Graphics from Purdue University (graduated in 2000). I usually work with individuals and small business that want to increase their business. I design websites and provide website hosting and email at my client’s domains (such as firstname.lastname@example.org). I have designed ZenCart (shopping cart / ecommerce) website, blogs (like this one), and informational websites. I create business cards, brochures, catalogs, newspaper and magazine advertisements, website banners, vinyl banners, car door magnets, and other promotional items. I setup and maintain Facebook business pages and Twitter accounts. I advertise for clients using Craigslist ads, other free classified advertisements, and adding their business to directories specific to their product or service. Basically I help my clients grow their business in any way I can through marketing, design, internet, newspaper, or other advertising media.
