Hi there! I’m Amanda. Here I am with my really, really good-looking husband Brett. We’ve been together for years and married for minutes. He’s a real gem.


Here he is looking good all by himself.


Our pets, Stella and Fatty are furry bed hogs and we love them so much.

I consider myself a Jill of all Trades, Master of None. I love to cook, sew, paint, crochet, bake, organize, decorate, and write. I pride myself on doing them all with absolute mediocrity. During the day, I work in grant writing and proposal development for a medical university. By night, you can find me watching Murder, She Wrote, crocheting a scarf, or sneaking tastes of whatever is in the crock pot for dinner. You can see my crafty things at Amanda Makes.

I’m getting settled into my adult life and trying to be the best version of myself. Time moves so quickly and I suppose this is my attempt to capture it!

  1. Hi Amanda. I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award. No pressure to participate or anything, but you can read my questions and stuff on my post: https://allroundbetterme.wordpress.com/2015/05/09/liebster-award-round-2/

    Hi Amanda! I wonder if you’d be up to participating in an interview project I have called Allegory? You can find more here: http://tinyletter.com/allegory

    If you’re interested, shoot me an email… I ran across your blog reading up on wardrobe capsules and I think you have an interesting point of view that I’d love to share in my series. 🙂
