About Me


Hi there!  I’m Amy, a Kansas girl who went from the farm, to college, to the suburbs.  I am a freelance graphic designer.  I am also a stay at home mother to three adorable little girls; Aurora, Delilah and Elena.   I am married to Joey, an amazing man, sweet father and a software engineer.

I started this blog as a way to share with you the things I make.  Making little crafty things out of felt and fabric and also making over old furniture.  But after discovering Ana White’s website (Ana-White.com) a few years ago, it unleashed my long time desire to build.  Having always wanted to, but it was so intimidating to get into.  Little by little I have acquired power tools and know-how .  The garage is my new “office”.

In the beginning I used her plans as a way to learn to build, now I am confident to deviate from the plans.  I look for inspiration and ideas anywhere I can and build from my own plans.  My next goal is to design my own furniture.


Once again, thank you for visiting.  I means the world to me.  And I LOVE comments! -Amy

    Thanks for sharing. I have 4 grown sons, 1 grandson and 2 grandaughts. I love the hair accessories and will be trying some soon for my girls. I wish I had friends to build with, I work at Home Depot and can usually find someone to help me if I need advice but it would be great to have someone to build with. Your thirty list is inspiring. Maybe I will do a sixty list. I did all the thirty already. Great job on you site. Thanks for inviting me to visit.
