Erika's blog

Love DOES Rock!

Erika Martin's artwork has always made me happy. She is a stamper who loves color, design and texture...all things I adore in stamping, food and clothing...but I was drawn to Erika's blog and work by something even bigger: Her passion for her art, her family and raising awareness of Autism. Erika's son Zach is one of the children in our world who lives with autism and its impact on his family and his life.

Erika is also a very generous person...she has made blog candy an art form in itself, with weekly giveaways, one of which I've won recently myself!!

Well, excitement on Erika's site is just bubbling up and I wanted to share it with all of you!

First, Zach recently celebrated his 9th birthday and Erika and Zach are giving you a chance to win a great prize!

Secondly, Erika has painted a wonderful acrylic masterpiece to raise money towards research in Autism. It is available for bidding on EBay....Check it out!
Follow this link! And feel free to bid on would be a gift to yourself and to Zach.

And finally, Erika has shared some personal thoughts and reflections as the mother of a child with autism as she shares her hopes and dreams for her boy. As a mom of two, I know that none of us are sure of what the future holds for our children; I also know that we all have dreams and desires that our kids will become exactly what God has purposed for them to be. Erika shares her hope beautifully on her blog,
Stampin' Mama: A Mama that Stamps.

I think her passion will touch your spirit and your heart! Also, feel free to visit her blog that she shares with Zach!

Be well and blessed this week!
Love ya!


  1. Great post Kim!! I have been visiting Erika's blog for some time now and she is truly very talented! I love the way she sees life even with all the challenges it presents to her! My BFs daughter is autistic so I know how difficult it can be at times! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex
