What she has to say about herself:
My name is Amanda, I'm 21 years old and I grew up in the middle of nowhere - Northern Ontario. My parents home is across from a river (separated only by our front lawn and a dirt road) and surrounded by fields. As such, I'm constantly inspired by the beauty of nature, particularly wild flowers, morning dew and flowing water.

I'm currently a fifth year (undergrad) Honours Biology and Pharmacology co-op student at McMaster University. This is my last semester, and it has been tough ~ especially since I was working for a whole year on my thesis. I investigated smooth muscle migration in real-time using videomicroscopy. It was fascinating, and I'm returning to continue my project for my Master's (and hopefully PhD). As such, I am quite a science geek... which is also a source of inspiration for me.

I've been crafty my whole life, and enjoy making a variety of things. When I was younger, it was drawing, then making wreathes and dolls and beading. Now, my focus has switched to making notebooks and jewelry. I love the range of colours, shapes and sizes that beads come in, and I constantly collect more and more. Buttons are also a huge favourite. I also enjoy cooking, reading, writing and problem solving.

Please check out my blog, ulixis.blogspot.com. I'm trying to keep it up to date, though I'm extremely busy. I always try to post on any Etsy purchases I make and receive. Additionally, I'm taking part in the 90 day blogging challenge, where I'm supposed to feature a wonderful Etsy artist once a day. Unfortunately, I've been too busy lately to be consistent, but I'm trying.

Go and take a peak at her cards and jewelry!
