First Post!

Ah, the awkward first post.  What to say?  Hi!  Nice to meet you, thousands of people who are jumping to read this blog!  Or not..

A little about me should work for starters, I suppose!  My name is Amanda.  I have been married for nearly 10 years to my awesome husband, who I love more every day.  I am a stay at home mom to the most gorgeous, fun, sweet, smart and hilarious identical twin daughters.  It is so much fun to be their mom!  They just turned 18 months old, so things are getting wilder by the minute around here!  I love God, my family, creating things, reading, music and being with friends.  I graduated from a Christian college with a degree in music, but I've never really used it.  I'm quite content doing what I do!  

I started sewing when I was a teenager.  My sister-in-law is a quite fabulous seamstress who taught me the basics and I've just run with it since then.  There was a pretty big hiatus for me when I was working full time, but once the girls came along, I picked it back up and am enjoying it tremendously!  I have made several things for the girls and when some friends wanted to buy pieces for their own daughters, I decided to try to make it a home business!  I started an Etsy shop with one of my best friends who knits and together we create some fun things for kids, adults...anyone really!  I decided to blog so I would have a place besides Facebook to share some of my pieces and the creative process behind what I create.  I hope you enjoy reading about what I make.  I can't promise to be a super faithful blogger...I spent most of my youth starting journals and realizing 6 months later that I hadn't kept up with it.  However, I will try to post at least once a week.  I am excited to join the Kids Week Clothes Challenge from in October, so that will motivate me to post, I hope!  Welcome and thanks for reading!

:) Amanda
