I am Amy: mama of four, wife to my high-school sweetheart, and creative enthusiast. I am so glad your creative journey has brought you to Positively Splendid!
As the daughter of an accomplished oil painter and a gifted sewist, I spent my childhood in a home brimming with paintbrushes and sewing notions. My profound love for all things creative began just about the very moment I first wielded a pair of safety scissors, and creativity has always had a significant impact on my life. Positively Splendid was born in 2010 out of my desire to help others discover their own innate creative potential. Over the course of the last 3+ years, it has been my pleasure to write dozens of unique, photo-rich tutorials to inspire my readers to create something they can be proud of with their own two hands.
