This past summer, Amy casually mentioned to me that she was writing the book she had been wanting to pen for years. I was thrilled for her, of course. She has so much inspiration and wisdom to share, it would be a shame if she didn’t write a book ASAP! Then this past November, she told me that her book was finished and she was ready to publish it. I was blown away at how fast she was able to bring her dream to life! But then again, I wasn’t surprised at all. When Amy sets out to do something, she does it, and she does it BIG.
Enter: Craft A Life You Love.
Amy Tangerine is not only an amazing artist whom I’ve admired for years, but she has also been an incredible mentor to me. After I moved back from Utah, I began working for Amy a few days a week and never once has it actually felt like “work.” Instead, she’s given me an invaluable opportunity to hone all of my creative skills, including everything from scrapbooking and graphic design to photography and writing. Each time I show up for work, I never know what the day has in store, but I can always count on walking away having learned something new.
One of my favorite things about Amy is that she actually practices what she preaches. Girl walks the walk and talks the talk. I mean, she keeps a set of watercolors in her purse for those pockets of free time in her day where creativity can be squeezed in…if that isn’t dedication to her craft, then I don’t know what is! I can’t think of anyone more qualified to dispense advice on creative living than Amy.
One of my favorite things about this book is that it meets you right where you are. You don’t need to be a professional creative with a huge following to relate to the stories and advice that Amy shares. Craft A Life You Love is simply a guidebook for infusing your life with more joy and fulfillment through the process of creativity.
Before Craft A Life You Love went to print, Amy had me read the entire book from cover to cover to look for any grammatical errors and inconsistencies. Needless to say, I was thrilled to take on that job! With Landon sleeping in my arms, I was able to dive deep into an inspiring book without interruption…I can’t remember the last time I was afforded such a luxury! Now that I have my own copy of the book, I turn to it when I need a little boost. It’s like always having Amy’s kind and encouraging self at the ready!
I honestly cannot recommend this book enough. Go get your copy today!
