Amanda has a lot of fun making custom things such as purses, blankets, and dresses in her craft room, a previously small bedroom in her house. In that room, she does her favourite thing which is watch real life crime TV while sewing. Although sewing in general is fairly easy for her, the most difficult part of the process is when she is developing a new product. "When I first try something out I am usually not happy with how it turned and then have to change it. I find the process of sewing and resewing something difficult because I hate to waste material. I also sometimes have to really think about how to sew something properly to maximize fabric usage and to make sure it is durable." Her favourite pieces that she's created have been her children's colouring wallets. "This product is extremely handy to have in your purse or the car for your little ones. It comes with colouring tools, paper and of course some stickers. Everything is ready to go just stick it in your purse and go."
Currently, she is working on building stock for 30 Craft Market's June 28 show at Silver Bean Café in Millennium Park (Peterborough, Ontario), and would like everyone to know that "crafting is the best way to relieve stress, show your creativity and a great way to live your life. Support hand made!"
