"Sensory-Friendly" means this jewelry is lightweight, easy to wear, and non-irritating--an ideal gift for those with hypersensitivity associated with autism and Asperger's, or who find most jewelry difficult to wear. The iridescent mermaid scales are beautiful to look at, and the glitter calm bottle necklaces are fun to play with. They are great for stimming and calming anxiety. All pieces at the table are hand-crafted by Alyssa Huber, and all proceeds will support her transition to independent living. (More info on Alyssa's transition!)

Help Alyssa and Matt Reunite! ♥ ~ GoFundMe Campaign

I hope my work has benefited you in some way. I never would have imagined "Through Our Eyes" becoming so widespread, but I'm thankful it did. It helped me discover the amazing autism community and meet so many great people. I know now I am not alone!

Now I need your help. I am longing for independence, to move out of my parents house and finally marry my fiancé
 Matt Rhodes. (Yes, the same Matt Rhodes from the film!) Please check out my GoFundMe campaign, share it with others, and donate if you can.




I am not usually one to ask for help or handouts, I believe in hard work and self-sufficiency. But the reality that I live with is that I cannot work-full time, and my government benefits are not enough to live off of. I work hard every day to advocate for the autism community, and take care of myself, but it does not support me enough financially.


My friends, family, and followers: you are dear to me and I am grateful for any support. Please share on social media to spread the word. :)

Thank you so much!!

Filmmakers: Sony Vegas Editing Software is $20! (Ends 12/27)

Merry Christmas!

For filmmakers like me (aspiring or accomplished), this would be a great gift!

Sony Vegas Pro Edit for $20!

Sony Vegas is a video editing software comparable to Adobe Premiere, usually super pricey but you can get it in this $20 bundle until Dec 27th.

Kudos to my brother for finding this deal. (This post was not sponsored by anyone.)

For the record, I am an Adobe Premiere editor but grabbed one of these anyway. $20 is way more affordable than $1,000+ for another Adobe Suite and it's good to have a backup.

And don't forget that until 01/15/2018 you can get a DVD copy (special edition) of "Through Our Eyes: Living with Asperger's" for only $10! Alternatively, streaming access to the full-length film is only $5.

Have a great season, stay warm and see you in 2018!
