Need a custom form?? I can help!!


Do you need a specialized form for your business or organization?  The Vintage Motor Car Club of America asked me to create a car tour registration form and a scholarship application.  I created the forms using Adobe Acrobat Pro.   Documents are in PDF format, which means Portable Document Format.  Any user can print or complete online and then print their typewritten information regardless of the type of software or computer hardware they own.  This flexibility makes it nice for the tech savvy user or a user who is not comfortable with the online environment.  Click on the links below to view the forms on the VMCCA website.

I had the thrill of driving this amazing car through the beautiful country side of Washington county last year along with twenty other classic cars.  The tour was honoring the former owner, Sheril Berryhill, who had passed away prior to completion of the car’s restoration.  Jamie Crandall, former VMCCA president and dear friend of the Berryhill’s decided to complete the restoration.  After nearly two years, the car was finally done to perfection!   I know Sheril would have been pleased and proud.  On the tour, I drove his wife, Marion, while she shared stories of their wonderful life together.   Fast-forward to present day, I never would have guessed I would be designing an advertisement for The Bulb Horn Magazine, the official publication of the Vintage Motor Car Club of America.  This magazine is published six times a year and is distributed to members throughout the United States.  It is truly an honor and a blessing to have been asked to create this advertisement for the upcoming tour in March.  Additionally, I will be creating various promotional materials and the tour guide book for each participant.  These classics are truly moving pieces of art and design.



One of my recent projects was working with author, Tina Webb.  She contacted me because she needed someone to do some editing for her cookbook.  This book is in Adobe InDesign format.  This opportunity was the catalyst for Busy Bee Inspirations.  A BIG thank you to Tina for allowing me the opportunity to work on this project.  I am excited to say that the book has gone to print and should arrive in the next four to six weeks.  Simple.Southern cookbook is a must-have for all connoisseurs of home cooking and baking.  The recipes and the photography in this book are amazing!  I stayed hungry the entire time I was working on it!  If you love to cook and bake, I strongly suggest you check out Tina’s website at and order your book today!  When you purchase this book, a portion of the proceeds go to help support the Adam’s Angels Ministry.
