Long time no see! How is everyone going?
You may have noticed that I’ve decided to renovate – the place looks a bit different (new name, new domain, that sort of thing). No, I haven’t deleted everything, I’ve just decided to take a step back and start fresh. I’m in the process of seeing which of my old posts fit with my new direction.
For those of you who have found this place anew, my name is Amanda and I’ve been blogging here since I was 17. I’m now 23, and as you could imagine I’m not writing about the same things I was 6 years ago.
I miss writing and sharing things here, life has kept me busy in 2016. I scored a permanent job on a ward that I love and started doing just night shift back in July (I’m a Registered Nurse). I’m nearly halfway through my post-graduate course in orthopaedics. And I bought a house! My very own place with a nice big home loan and everything. Which means I finally moved out of my parents’ place and am currently living with a boy (scary and exciting times!). I should clarify, not a boy I met off the street, but the man I’ve just celebrated my 5 year anniversary with ❤
Probably the first change you would have noticed is the name change. Previously, I called this place ‘Fossi Una Farfalla’ – an Italian phrase I fell in love with in high-school that literally means ‘If I were a butterfly’, or in other words ‘If I were free’. As poetic as that was, I think it’s time to move on.
What I really want to keep on blogging about is my crafting obsessions. I am absolutely addicted to crochet! I’ve dabbled in many other crafts though, including cross-stitching and quilting. I just love making things… So, let’s keep it simple – Mandy Makes.
Keep an eye out for all the changes, and future crafty posts. First thing I have planned is a tour of my new craft nook in my happy new house! (If you’ve just found this site – welcome!)
Until then, take care 🙂
Crafted with love,
