The beginning of my journey into the handmade world began, literally, at the beginning. The renewal of my spirit and creative self, as Amelie Jo, began with the birth of my daughter. I did not know it at the time, but my connection to my true self had been stifled, almost wiped out. I was constantly searching for answers and a purpose. Something that made me feel like a whole person.
Motherhood seemed to unlock something inside. A journal came spilling out onto the floor, exposing all of its pages, chocked full of ideas and abilities that had been stored and tucked away for a sunny day.
