Amanda - Vintage Dutch Girl's Profile

About

Hello there, I'm Amanda, AKA Vintage Dutch Girl!

Why Vintage Dutch Girl?

Just because, that's why....
I am Dutch by heritage
I am of the female variety...meaning I'm a girl
I love me some garage sales and thrift stores, especially if I find a scruffy furniture piece that needs a fresh coat of paint.
I also love crafting and creating, especially if that means shirking housework :)
Finding new uses for older things appeals to me
I am also rather "vintage" in my values as well

I am a (currently Retired OB RN) stay at home Mama to two little ones. My boy is Bubbalu, and is almost seven and my gal, Lil Chick, is almost five. Their day to day care and antics keep me running like a headless chicken…

Ever since I was a young child I have felt a pull towards creative arts. Everything from painting, sewing, sculpting, printing, crocheting, building, designing...pretty much everything. I opened the Vintage Dutch Girl Etsy shop in October of 2009 to allow me a place to indulge those creative instincts. I have always had a passion for creating beautiful things and my Vintage Dutch Girl Etsy shop allows me to fuel this passion on a near daily basis. Currently, that passion is being poured out into sewing beautiful infinity scarves and maxi skirts. Sitting at my sewing desk in my studio working with gorgeous fabric makes me smile. I hope some of my creations can make you smile too.

As for other areas in my life: I like to de-stress by exercising but indulge in chocolate and mochas. I unwind by watching girly movies but can bring it when playing Settlers or Trivial Pursuit. And don't challenge me to Mad Gab...you will lose! I'm a music junkie loving everything from praise and worship to bluegrass to pop. Sudoku keeps me sane and coffee keeps me energized. I read anything I can get my hands on, but prefer beach books with sappy love plots. I blog for cheap therapy (www.vintagedutchgirl.blogspot.com) and sew and create to release my inner craftyness. My husband treats me like the queen of his palace, he is the king of my dreams. My kids keep me young and my faith keeps me grounded.
