In the 2000’s when I was scrapbooking and rediscovering my creative side, I would have never thought that there would be opportunities to pursue like celebrity scrapbooking! Amy shares with us that there is a real market for this, and she proves it’s a big deal because she was even hired to do Dr. Phil’s 60th Birthday Party! This proves that no matter what creative niche you are a part of, there is a need, a want, and an audience for absolutely everything, and when you find your people and show up authentically, your business is going to thrive because of it.
Stay tuned for more exciting episodes coming your way, filled with valuable insights, inspiring stories, and practical tips.
About Amy Tangerine:
I’m a multi-passionate maker, creative director, designer, author, mom, scrapbooker, and lover of lettering.
About ten years ago, I was in the process of burnout, and my creative flow was running dry. I knew something needed to change. Then I discovered scrapbooking and a whole community of people who really paused to examine their lives. They were being reflective. They were documenting the joyous moments. They were sharing stories with one another. As I got immersed in this community, I realized I was starting to realign my thoughts to focus on the positive side of life and release my stress and worry. My creative juices were flowing again.
I never imagined that my hobby of scrapbooking would turn into a career of helping others live their best lives by giving themselves permission to pursue their craft and take loving care of themselves. I published my book Craft A Life You Love in 2018, to provide creatives with the tools to see the bright and shiny side of life and find and maintain their flow by focusing on what truly matters. My son is a daily inspiration to me. I love seeing what he creates in his nook at my studio.
The number one question I get asked is, “Why do you love rainbows?”
There’s something magical about the colors in the world in one place. When I see a rainbow, I feel hope and happiness. They make me smile. Rainbows are also a way for me to organize my life. My life is full of projects, daily tasks, and family responsibilities; so seeing each of them as a different color of the rainbow, I am able to feel happy while creating order and a routine. Everything I do works beautifully together—just like the colors of a rainbow, and I take the time to appreciate and focus on each individual project. My hope is you live your life in full color too!
