Meet Amanda Rydell!!

I am super excited for you to meet Amanda Rydell today!! I had the pleasure of meeting her for lunch earlier this year and we became instant friends! Not only is she super talented at what she does but she has a heart of pure gold! Amanda is a genius when it comes to crafting and pretty packaging and I am constantly inspired by her ability to make cute things! She is going to be providing lots of fun ideas and projects for us here on the blog that are on the crafty side of things and I can't wait to see what she does!!

How long have you been scrapbooking/crafting? I can't think of a moment in my life I haven't been making a big crafty mess. I knew I loved all things crafty when I traded my first Lisa Frank sticker.

What do you love most about scrapbooking/crafting? I have found over the years that crafting is not only for my own personal love of pretty paper but can be created and shared with others to brighten their day.

What inspires you? I am inspired daily by color!

5 random facts about you that will help us to get to know you better:

I use my hot glue gun on a daily basis and I might even be known to carry one in my purse along with a pair of scissors!

This summer I dream of finally completing the inside renovation of my vintage camper, and driving it across America to craft parties everywhere.

I still use the same sewing machine I bought with my Jr. High babysitting money.

I have two yorkie dogs. Most days they are also covered in glitter!

Righ now I have a fetish for pastel paint and amazing thrift store finds.
