Well Hello There

We are Amanda and Rhiannon; friends and neighbors who are super excited to have this new creative outlet! We can’t wait to share our latest crafty goodness with you! There will probably be lots of crazy stories about what goes on in our neighborhood thrown in there too! We’ve got quite the fun group of people living here. Good times!

Amanda & Seth

Amanda and I are neighbors in the cutest little cul-de-sac in a vibrant mid-western college town. We started out as dog-sitting buddies, and very quickly became friends. Right away we realized we shared a love for all things do-it-yourself, and haven’t stopped swapping ideas since.

Rhiannon & Nicholas

The idea for this blog developed last Sunday during a random baking project over here at my house. It was a friend’s birthday (another neighbor of ours, Andy), and I had just gotten back from the store buying cake pop ingredients. I thought Amanda might like to learn how to make cake pops with me, so I invited her over. We were elbow deep in a bottle of wine and lots of cakey goodness when we saw Andy pull into his driveway. We hollered at him to come over, then Amanda told Seth (her fiance) to come over, and so it became a party (as it often does in our cozy neighborhood)! Unfortunately, Nicholas (my husband) was working his butt off at school, so he didn’t show up until later. Sad, I know, but more wine and sugary snacks for the rest of us!

Here's a sneak peak of our cake pop adventure!

So, we are all standing around dipping cake balls into icing (yes, it is as fun as it sounds), and Amanda and I are telling the boys about all of our recent crafty ventures. I’m not sure who said it first, but someone mentioned that we should be putting all of these projects into a blog. Well, that was that. We pretty much decided right then and there that we could totally do it, and it would be so much fun! Both Amanda and I are constantly bursting at the seams to get something crafty out of our systems, and what better way to document the journey?

So here we are, and there are you. We hope you enjoy this adventure with us!

Please feel free to always leave comments, concerns, notes hello, secret family recipes, etc. We look forward to your feedback!
