Craft a Life You Love

I’ve been reading a lot of great books this year and one of my favorites was Craft a Life You Love by Amy Tangerine. I’ve followed Amy’s work for several years, but I didn’t know much about her background or how she got started in the scrapbooking industry. Her story is fascinating and her philosophy on crafting is so refreshing. I felt so inspired after I read this book that I ordered another copy and sent it to my daughter.

I marked several quotes in the book that I wanted to remember and I decided that the best way to incorporate these into my life would be to do something creative with them. So I opened up my Word Swag app and turned these thoughts into pieces of word art. ❤️


I love that her emphasis is on doing!


It’s easy to play the blame game. There are plenty of excuses to let the bad people and circumstances in our life bring us down. I like her focus on turning these into learning opportunities and actually being grateful for the blessing we received from the lesson of what we DON’T want to be.




I want to remember to give myself credit for how far I’ve come. 💚


I hope you will take the time to read this wonderful book!
