I'm Janet. I was born and raised in Minnesota. My favorite title is mommy to two of the smartest, most beautiful, spunky, sweet girls out there. When I'm not taking care of the little peanuts, I run my photography and design businesses.
I stumbled across Pixel Scrapper early on when it was first started (before it became the site that it is today). Ironically, I ended up messaging Marisa to see if I could help contribute. I wanted to find a way to give back. Little did I realize that years later I would end up being fortunate enough to join this fab team! :)
Sophia, my youngest, was born this past February after a long battle to keep her in utero as long as possible. I dealt with a subchorionic hemorrhage (bleeding during pregnancy) from weeks 9-20. My water broke at 22 weeks and I wasn't admitted into the hospital until she was considered viable at two days shy of 24 weeks. With much care and help from the doctors, nurses, my family, and supportive friends I was able to hold off delivery until 28 +4 weeks. Our little peanut weighed in at 2 pounds 7 ounces and battled for life for quite a while before things mellowed out. She ended up staying a couple of days shy of 60 days in the NICU before she was able to join our family at home. Now she's a healthy, sweet, little 9 month old who weighs in at 17 pounds 2 ounces and is completely on track for her gestational age.
