Contestant Spotlight: Amanda & Jennifer

Crafts by Amanda
My name is Amanda Formaro. I have four wonderful kids, am married to my high school sweetheart, and live in southeast Wisconsin. I love to cook, bake and make crafts. I did the corporate grind until my third child was three months old. That’s when I quit to stay home and raise my kids. now my youngest is in 6th grade and my oldest is graduating high school. I can’t believe how fast they grow!
I owned a website from 1997 through 2007, after that I started my blogs, Amanda’s Cookin’ and Crafts by Amanda. I love creating things for my home as well as making cute kid’s crafts and providing tutorials for my readers. My hope is that I am successful in sharing my love for crafting and food through these blogs.  Crafts by Amanda became an online outlet for me after selling my website. I didn’t stop crafting after that, so I needed a place to post. It’s such a passion for me, I love to create and share. I thrive on positive comments, but who doesn’t?? 🙂 They keep me going and give me reason to continue creating and posting.

Hey ya’ll! I’m Jennifer from the beautiful state of Utah.
I’m so excited to be one of the contestants on American Crafter.
This has been my first *real* year of blogging and I have so much
crafty goodness I want to share with you!
When I’m not chasing my toddler and baby around the house,
I’m working on my bloggity blog blog – All Things Belle
You will find tons of tutorials on Knock Offs, sewing pattern reviews,
and the occasional story about my girls giving me yet one more grey hair.
Looking forward to sharing my love of crafting and art with you!
In the meantime, did you just love the bunny lamp?
