It’s the final week of “Nine Weeks of Amy”. I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas, time with family & friends and are looking forward to a wonderful New Year. I know I am! I always feel victories when I make it through another Christmas with my sanity intact! Well, most of it anyway. I never have resolutions. I just come up with a few things that I feel will add to my overall happiness and goal of being the best ME I can be. So January is a wonderful time of year for me.
I am a stay at home mom of 9 years. My husband travels for work, so 75% of the time I am on my own with two wonderful children. I am a Girl Scout leader, member of the PTA, science Olympiad couch, volunteer at school, chief cook and bottle washer, chief financial officer, lawn maintenance person, head of snow removal, dog walker, pool boy and lead chauffer for most sports and activities.
I took my first sewing class a couple years after my daughter was born. I thought it would be wonderful to be able to sew Halloween costumes for both my children. I was hooked immediately! I love that I can take a pile of fabric and make it into something wonderful.
My process is pretty simple. I collect patterns and ideas. I then combine both to come up with a unique item. Sometimes an idea comes from a certain fabric; sometimes a holiday brings a great idea. I know if my daughter loves it, my customers will love it!
My current goal for the New Year is put together a flicker account with photos of all my past projects that I have made for my kids as well as the current items that I am selling on my AmyCanSew site.
