About

About Me PicturePainted Posies is a fun little blog about crafting, cooking, creating and whatever else I come up with.  Some days, that means a recipe I concocted or something crafty I did.  Other days, it could be info on a party I’m planning or something new happening in the garden.  This is my attempt at sharing some fun projects, recipes, party planning tips and carefully edited parts of me with the world.  I’m guessing at this point you’d like a name, maybe some personal info? It’s Amy, and I’m a wife, sister, aunt, daughter, niece and friend.  Like many of you, I cook, I clean, I work.  I run a household of two, just my husband and I, but I’m also usually doing something with one or three of our 22 nieces and nephews (yes, seriously), trying to get my creative fix any way I can.  By day, I work in an office as a Customer Service Manager, creating world peace one customer at a time.  By night, I need something a lot less structured, and I’ll share it here with you.  So, if you dig around my blog, here’s what you will get:

 Craft project and homemade gift tutorials

Decorating and DIY project tutorials

Paintings or art projects I want to brag about

Gardening tips, tricks, successes and failures (of which there are plenty)

Recipes for the foods I pull out of our garden, or things I’ve tried or created myself

Random musings from my life

These things keep me sane, people.  With very few exceptions, everything I do is budget conscious and super easy, because I’m a.) not rich and b.) pretty busyslashlazy.

A couple more facts about me:

I live in Phoenix which is a.k.a. Hell on Earth 

I am a vegetarian who cooks yummy meals for the carnivores among me

I’m a child of the 80’s ~ pretty rad, huh?

I am the oldest of five, have two sets of moms and dads and I married into a family of eight kids and four parents, which means our family is pretty freaking big

So, there’s the skinny on me! I hope you like what you read, and if you do, that you will subscribe.  Maybe one day I’ll be one of those fancy bloggers who has sponsors and thousands of followers and then you can say you knew me when I was nothing special!

Feel free to contact me, I love fan mail.  HA! Just kidding.  But really, I do love comments!
