When I was little I often heard my mom say, “Brandi Amanda!” This of course was usually warranted by a mess I had made or a completely ridiculous idea that my creative mind produced. Perhaps I left the kitchen sputtered with flour from the latest baking project, or maybe I dropped a few sewing pins in my carpet which found their way to my mother’s foot, but one thing is for sure: Brandi Amanda has always been equivalent to the mess.
Here I am at 27 years old, a full-time teacher, and a furbaby mama. This time, though, it is not the kitchen (most of the time) that is a mess. It’s my whole personality. I am always five (or ten) minutes late, making goofy mistakes, buying what I need at the last minute, over-committing my time, and sometimes it is days before I clean up my craft projects. Also, my car is always a mess. In the midst of my crazy personality I am surrounded by people that care and love me, so it just so happens I keep functioning.
I look around at my happy fortune, and although there is some room to want for some organization, I will always be aware of how I am blessed.
This blog is a place where I just want to share my creative ideas, my mess of a life, and creations I make along the way.
