Guest Post: Amanda from Flightless Bird Design

Hi friends! I'd love to introduce you to Amanda, the owner of  Flightless Bird Design on Etsy.


I am in love with so many items from her shop. Here are just a few of them:





I seriously love this print and Amanda was sweet enough to send it to me! I can't wait to find the perfect place for it!
Don't worry, I won't make you wait to hear from her any longer. Friends, meet Amanda:

I feel like I’ve never been that artsy or creative in my life, but all of a sudden I wanted to be that person terribly. So one day, I found myself sitting at my kitchen table starting to draw. Mind you, the first dozen drawings were not exactly what I wanted and eventually got better in time. After I got the creative juices flowing a bit, I started to expand my mind into other creative outlets. I have found that I do like to work with my hands and produce things that make me happy but will also bring happiness and joy to others. I first started making things because I found it to be quite enjoyable and relaxing. But then I found myself with an abundance of items that I had no idea what to do with! Then ta-da! I found Etsy, and that is how my shop was created. 
My shop is really just a collection of little things that I like. In each piece I make, I like to think that it reflects different parts of my personality. Some of my favorite things in my shop are my drawings. I truly love the prints that I make available to everyone. Each one tells its own story to the person looking at it. It may mean one thing to one person, but could mean something completely different to another. It gives people a chance to kind of make it their own in a way. I have always been a fan of drawings or music that could have multiple meanings to mass amounts of people. It just makes it all the more powerful. 
I really do think that everyone is capable of being that person they always aspire to be. It is hard work and sometimes not that easy to get to, but is completely worth it in the end. 
I once read this quote, and sometimes can’t remember it at times that I truly need it, but every time I do see it, it is inspiring all over again. It reads, “Don’t dream your life, Live your dreams”. 

Go check out her shop, it's lovely! And follow her on Twitter!

Hope you're having a wonderful Tuesday. We had an interesting day yesterday. Stay tuned.
