Who Am I ?
A question I have asked myself many times. My given name is Amy Dyanne. But is that who I am? I have been many things and hope to be many more before I leave this colorful world.
I am child of Victoria,(thank you for having me.)
I am best friend and wife to Tom without whom I would be lost. He is my world. For over 25 years we have been figuring out this wild ride together and I know who he is, he is my BEST Friend and biggest fan. He is ever supportive even of my silliest ideas.
I am mother to Jimmy Spoon and Bird Bath. (real names changed to protect the innocent, ha!) Motherhood is by far the best thing I have ever experienced as well as the hardest. It is a love unlike another and with love comes pain too at times. I have had the privilege of being able to stay home with our children and ‘raise’ them. Now they are adults finding their own way in society.
I am a friend. I have lots of acquaintances, I know lots of people, but I have a handful of ‘real friends’ For this I am thankful.
I am a creative being, I love to make things, do things, change things, start things like home based businesses. It started with moving furniture, switching up cupboard contents, changing the paint color. Designing and planting a new garden, then another, then it escalated into remodels (we do all our own work), additions, new ventures Home Daycare, Mary Kay, Discovery Toys, Creative Memories, and outside ventures like renting spaces in vintage shops, repurposing. It just goes on and on.
I am an artist. Here I have found my passion. Once Jimmy and Bird left the nest, I had more time to explore art. I started making things and have been on a path of ‘Can’t get enough’ for a few years now. It is what makes me happy.
