Hello! My name is Amy! I'm the mind behind Then She Made... and I am returning after a much needed break. What have I been up to while I was away, you ask. Well, here's a few of the things...
1- Hanging on with all my might while my kids finished up their school year. Seems May is a crazy month of projects and parties. It's over now though, school's out and I'm pretty happy about that! (So are my girls)
The blue bot is my favorite. He keeps me company at work and stares at me while I do my job. I like the green guy too, especially his flowers, but the blue bot is my fav. I created him first and I think because of that, he holds a special place in my heart.
I also made the little bird at the top of the page - I'm thinking some tutorials are in order. Yes?
3- I've been changing up the blog. Did you notice? I toyed with a whole complete re-do but didn't like it much so I just changed the colors and updated a few other things. Got rid of the orange. I like orange though so in the future it might come back.
4- I've been doing a little bit more photography. My camera died for a bit, which was hard to deal with but it's back and so am I. It's been good to be behind the lens again. Tonight Miss M and I went out at sunset for a quick little mini Senior photo session. Yes, my Miss M is headed into her senior year - eeek!
5- And, speaking of photography, I've made a little home over at Instagram. If you'd like to follow me over there you can find me at thenshemade. Seems I'm on Instagram more than any other social media platform these days.
6- And, last but not least, I've just been working on trying to find my happiness again. It's been a crazy year and I feel like these last few months I've just been trying to find my place and where I fit best. There's been happiness and sadness, family issues, health concerns, and well, just life - it happens. I've learned that most of the time you can't control the things that happen to you so the best thing to do is just to work on becoming your best self.
Life is about creating yourself and remembering that you are your own best work of art! I'm working hard on trying to remember that because it really does affect your over-all happiness.
Anyway, I'm back - thanks for sticking with me!
