Guest Blogger: Amanda from The Ivy Cottage! June 7, 2011 Blog Swap 1 Comment 3450 Hello Lovely Crafty Home Readers! My name is Amanda and I hold court over at The Ivy Cottage Blog! My love of decorating, crafting, and DIY has spilled out all over our house and I am finally documenting EVERYTHING. I graduated with a degree in sculpture and worked as an art teacher for a few years. My love of clay evolved into a traveling craft business, which gave way to wedding decor design after my kids were born. As I worked from home on my wedding business and cared for my children, I realized that I just couldn’t get out as often and I spent even less time on my artwork. My friend, Christine, suggested I take up blogging and after a few months, I was hooked. What a great way to meet people and continue to develop my creativity. How do I describe the design of my own home? Cottage Chic with Purpose Here is a little sneak peak of projects and rooms you can find over at The Ivy Cottage Blog: My living room with spring decor . . . The master bathroom remodel . . . Candle holder made from thrift store crystal and a glass shade from a ceiling fan . . . Ivy’s vintage inspired toddler room . . . So do you need some inspiration? Come on over and check out some of my latest and greatest projects like Geometric Mirror Art, How To Revamp Your Tired Couch, and one of my personal favorites, Builder’s Grade Mirror to Beautiful!
