My name is Amy and I was recently asked by Jessica to be a Contributer to her Blog! I can’t tell you all how excited I am to join her, as writing has always been a huge passion of mine since I was very young.
I am 36 years old, married to my best friend for 10 years now, and we’ve been together for 17 years. We live in a small New England City, and absolutely love the North East. We’ve grown up together and have been through so much. I don’t know what I would do without him. We were blessed with 1 daughter, who will be 8 next week. Being a Mom and wife has changed me for the better. I would do anything for my little family! It is by far the hardest job I’ve ever done yet probably my favorite and most rewarding.
When I was 32 I was diagnosed with Cancer and was forced to become a stay at home Mom, after my surgeries and treatments. I consider myself a Survivor as I’ve had to fight for everything since that horrible day that I received the news. Little did I know that this life event would lead me to my passion and help me realize what I really wanted to be doing with my life. First, I am a stay at home Mom, dedicated to taking care of my daughter and husband to the best of my ability. Secondly, I have found talents that I did not know I had. Probably because I have always worked full time and sometimes a second job on top of being Mom and a wife. Having all this free time, has given me the time to really think.
Where my life is now:
This past year I made Toothfairy Pillows for Christmas presents and was talked into selling them. I really didn’t think much of it. I made a Facebook page to sell my handmade Toothfairy Pillows and named it Fairytale Pillows by Amy. To my surprise my business took off fairly quickly and I soon had a web page and business cards and have done several customs orders! I absolutely love what I do and I couldn’t be happier.
I also found a hidden talent, I can draw! Sketching is probably one of my favorite things to do. I also made a Facebook page to share my drawings. When I’m not making pillows I always have my sketch pad open. You never know where this could take me as I was recently asked to draw a logo for a small business! I do consider myself an Artist. Although I am self taught, I do a lot of research and watch tutorials and I don’t think I can explain how much I love it! I challenge myself daily and take on way too much, and that is who I am! I love making people happy and that is the main focus of my business!
I will be posting mainly about Parenting topics and hope to put a smile on your faces.
