my first post
so this is going to be my first post on my new amy+mayd blog! yay! to be honest, I love writing but I have found it hard to be so candid with my life online because it is unnatural to me to let people in to such a deep place.

my “amy+weekly” page is going to be a way for me to track the current projects I am working on and the “amy+loves” page will encompass sites, blog posts and other crafters information that I am loving!
