Amanda was an Army brat and as a youngster grew up living all over. She has 3 sister and each of them were born in different states. They eventually landed in Ohio where she did most of her growing up. Currently she is "Technically Single" but lives with her partner of 5 years and their dog in a suburb of Austin, Texas. She said she loves living in Round Rock.
Although it was hard for Amanda to choose favorites the photos you see were some of those she likes best. They demonstrate some of her talents. Specifically her color sense, style and her ability to design to show a unique blend of influences.
She uses many social media tools including a blog with the same name as her shop that is quite active. She also uses Twitter and Facebook. You can follow her at any of the links. Of all the media she uses Twitter is her favorite.
As I end all my blogs I asked Amanda for her favorite piece of advice. Although she did not have advice she did have a favorite quote by Jean Paul Sartre "All I really want to do is go to the book store, drink coffee and read" which she says is basically her.
