Mod Podge Amy 2

My name is Amy and I’ve been creative since I was little. I always had to take art classes, and I remember being the youngest person by far at sewing camp when I was 10. I hated sewing camp.

At the time, I didn’t appreciate the gift that my parents were giving me – but these days I am very thankful. No only do I have a lot of crafty skills, but now I’m blogging about crafting as my full-time job. And it’s the best job ever.

So why DIY Candy?

I have two other blogs, Mod Podge Rocks and Washi Tape Crafts, and those blogs are about very specific topics. I started DIY Candy because I wanted a place that I could share my appreciation of ALL types of creativity, from knitting to cooking to home decor.

I dabble in all of these things personally, so I needed a blog to post my own tutorials. DIY Candy is that place. I’m so glad you are here!

Here are 10 things about me that you should know.

  1. I live in Vancouver, Washington. I’ve lived all over the country but west is best for me.
  2. I love crafting, but I also love cars, motorcycles, and outdoor activities.
  3. I have an undergrad degree in Forestry, an MBA in Business and have had 10 jobs since I graduated from college (commitment issues anyone?)
  4. The color blue is my favorite. I love bright colors.
  5. My favorite movie of all time is Star Wars.
  6. I constantly battle a sugar and coffee addiction – I love candy and lattes.
  7. I have a fear of flying but I do it anyway.
  8. I love cooler weather – give me 60 degrees or under any day before the beach.
  9. The most appealing thing in the world is a good sense of humor.
  10. I seem to work best when things are chaotic and I have a ton to do.
