My Bio
Hey! My name is Sarah but you can just call me Sparkles (Or Mama Sparkles if you prefer :giggle:)!

The main thing you should know about me is that I eat, sleep, and breathe horses. I draw them, I write about them, I RP them, and as a little girl I even pretended that I was one of them. I love them. I am obsessed; and if you don't like that, tough.

I suffer from both Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. Due to the severe, debilitating nature of these illnesses I had to give up my dreams and withdraw from college in early 2009 where I was majoring in Equine Business Management. I have been homebound ever since and am completely dependent on my parents. I am currently awaiting to hear the decision regarding my 3rd appeal from the Social Security Disability council. Although applying for Disability is a huge blow to my pride, it is the only chance I'll ever have to "support" myself; unless a cure for these diseases is found.

I share my life with two extremely adorable house bunnies, Willow and Loaf (who are my fur-children), and a very large, goofy German Shepherd named Ayla. Also living here with me are my mother and brother, (who also suffer from CFS), my dad, and my brother's girlfriend, Amber. Despite physical and financial hardships we are a tight-knit, crude, quirky bunch; and we're always laughing about something.

I try to be prompt when it comes to commenting and replying, but my symptoms significantly limit my ability to do this. However I do read every single message, even if I don't respond immediately! If you want to get in touch with me and need a quick response your best bet would be to drop me a note.

I consider the equine community here on dA as a part of my family. Without the kindness, love, and understanding of these very special people, I wouldn't be able to carry on. Every time I fall to my knees, they pick me back up and give me hope again. To say that I love them would be an under statement. :huggle:

If you have questions about me, my pets, my artwork, or even my illnesses, please don't hesitate to drop me a note. I will not be offended, even if you want to ask me something about my disabilities. As a matter of fact, I strongly encourage it!

Love you all! :glomp:

Okay. So it's been decided, thanks to my last poll, that I should upload my stock on a separate account. But what about photos of Loaf, Willow and Ayla?

I think that you should upload all your photos from now on to your stock account.
I think that you should upload photos of Loaf, Willow and Ayla here, and everything else there.
I think that you should upload pics of Loaf, Willow and Ayla (if they're stock, that is) to both accounts.

I am about to enter the realm of a stock provider, thanks to my new Canon EOS 60D dSLR which was a gift from my Gram. I have photos of horses, landscapes, dogs, and bunnies that just need to be edited and uploaded. Should I:

Upload the hundreds of pictures to a separate stock account where people who are interested in my stock can follow me there, and people who aren't wont get swamped with unwanted deviations.
Upload the hundreds of pictures to this account, and make my gallery contain a little bit of everything.

Really nice photos. Have a great day :D
Hello there. God bless! :D
I really like your icon! Bunnies are awesome :D and horses too!
I remember reading your horse story Twist of Fate, and I enjoyed looking at pictures of your horse characters.

I hope you're doing okay, and I hope you return to the site someday...
