Hi, I’m Amanda

I’m a wife to a computer nerd, mom to a sweet baby girl, and lover of all things baking, creating, and making. I’m not afraid to get messy or fire up a power tool and I have yet to meet a dessert I don’t like. In my free time (what’s that?) I love to spend time with my husband, daughter, and chocolate lab. I also enjoy creating art!

Where this all began

This blog has evolved so much since I first launched in December 2013. My husband and I had just moved to a new city and state (Austin, TX), several hours drive away from all of our friends and family. This blog was my way of staying connected with so many people “back home” and letting them know what we were up to. Since then, it has evolved into so much more than that. It’s a space where I can share my creativity, design skills and simple recipes with so many wonderful people to help make the place they live in feel more like home.

At Domestically Creative, you’ll find easy to make, simple ingredient recipes, with quick crafts and beginner DIY projects sprinkled in. I hope you enjoy reading, and make sure to subscribe below
