Hello and welcome!  I am Amanda and for as long as I can remember I have loved dreaming, creating, and making others feel happy.  As a wife and mom to two little ones, finding projects that I can work on for our home or for others helps to fuel the creativity that I have bursting inside.  When I was little, I would love going into Jo-Ann Fabrics or Ben Franklin with my mom to browse the pretty fabrics and craft supplies and enjoy dreaming of the possibilities.  When my dad came home from working construction, I would hand him my "building plans" for a new book shelf I wanted in my room or the second story addition I thought would be nice to have as a hang out spot to enjoy with my brother and sister.  My dad did end up building the book shelf for me that I still can't help but to smile when I see it every time I go home to visit.

My days usually have a lot going on, just like the rest of us.  But my hope for you is to see that life is what you make of it, which is how I strive to live my life.  Through my Instagram and blog you will see glimpses of what is going on in my life as a mom, wife, teacher, and creative being.  

So how on Earth do I find a work/life balance?  There is no magical combination but I have found that I am happiest when I am creating, no matter how busy life can get.
