About Amanda

Hi, I'm Amanda. The original Creative Hobbyist. I consider myself a bit of a "Jill of All Trades." I am no expert at any one thing but instead good at many. I am an avid hobbyist, Pinterest addict, family photographer, party planner, virtual assistant, mommy, entrepreneur, party enthusiast and lifelong learner. I have two littles who inspire me daily. I love to use my creativity to help others.
