Hello I’m Amber – a graphic designer, artist, mom, wife, DIY enthusiast and music lover.
I’m also a terrible speller, horrible at grammar and still I enjoy blogging about my DIY projects, just not as eloquently written as other bloggers. I apologize in advance for future and possibly current mistakes that exist and will definitely happen with my awful writing skills
How I became fascinated with DIY…..
I grew up on a farm right outside of Madison Georgia, in a area called Buckhead. Yeah, there is a Buckhead in Atlanta. This however, is an entirely different Buckhead all together! Because nothing and I mean nothing was close to where I grew up. As you can imagine I became good at producing my on little world with things I’d find. Finding ways to create what I would dream up in my mind became a game. I guess you can say that since I was a little girl, I’ve enjoyed re-purposing, building, staging and designing interior and exterior spaces or environments. I have also enjoyed producing collage art, drawing and painting. It was a no brainier what degree to presume in college. I have BA in Art under the study of graphic design. My very first graphic design job was at a local carpet factory when I was 19. Since then, I’ve had experience in pretty much every graphic field out there.
Wither I have just finished a new piece of art or a cool DIY project, there is always another project brewing or going on at the same time.
Creating makes me very happy!
