About the Author: Amanda Blake Soule

I m Amanda, and I live in beautiful Portland, Maine with my husband, Steve, and our three young adventure seekers Calvin, Ezra, and Adelaide Our days are spent making things, exploring our coastal Maine surroundings, and growing together as a family.I ve always had a love of textiles and crafting, but it wasn t until the birth of my first child that creating became an essential part of my daily life Making things became a way for me to nurture myself in the busy and giving role of Mama, as well as a way to save money and conserve resources by repurposing readily available materials Making things also allows me to connect with countless women before me and share my love through the gift of handmade with those dearest to me.Creating with my children inherently the most creative beings of all is a source of tremendous inspiration, growth and connection for our entire family Whether through sewing, paper craft, music, cooking, nature exploration, or imaginative play, I believe there are many ways for each of us regardless of our skills to express creativity in our daily lives The benefits go far beyond a finished project when they both nurture and connect the soul of the family It is my hope to inspire other families to incorporate creativity into their own lives.
