Amy has been a long time collaborator and a part of the family as a Plaid Creator, so we're reintroducing this crafty blogger who is wholly dedicated to a creative lifestyle and taking us all along for the ride.
What is the name of your blog?
Why did you choose that name?
The name honestly came to me in a dream, believe it or not! I knew immediately that is was perfect to convey the positive vibe I want my site to exude.
What inspired you start blogging/video?
My blog actually started as a family blog just after my first son was born. Little by little, my creative projects started to become more plentiful, and I got a great response from people who would stop by to take a peek at my creations. Soon after starting to take creative blogging more seriously, my site was featured by Kim Demmon on Today's Creative Blog, and after that, I hit the ground blogging professionally and never looked back!

How do you describe your style?
Bright, accessible and fun.
What has been your biggest blogging/video achievement?
Writing a book was an absolute thrill, and something that wouldn't have been possible without my blogging experience.
Who has been the biggest influence on your crafting?
No doubt about it, my parents laid the cornerstone to my creativity. My mom is a talented seamstress and crafter of all trades, and my dad was a phenomenal oil painter. Watching them both engage in their creative endeavors while I was small really helped me on my path to discovering my own creative abilities.
What is your favorite color?
I have to be a contrarian and pick two colors: black and white! Honestly, there is no color that doesn't pop along with a contrast of black and white. It's my favorite go-to neutral in my craft projects and in my home decor.

What is your catchphrase?
I don't have a catchphrase, per se, but my most important message to my readers is definitely that everyone, regardless of their level of experience, can make something to be proud of with their own two hands.
If you could craft with anyone past or present who would you craft with and why?
No doubt, I would choose my grandma. She passed away in 1995, and I would give anything to spend a day quilting with her. I remember so vividly sitting in her lap as a little girl and watching her hand quilt so many gorgeous creations.
What is your favorite downtime activity?
Cooking with my husband. We are both foodies at heart, and it's fun to have a hobby we can enjoy together that results in delicious food!
