About Me

Hello Friends! Thank you for visiting my blog.

Let me introduce myself! My name is Mandy Douglass. I live in Utah and I am a Wife, a mother of two boys, a stay at home mom, and a Graphic Designer. I love life and try to find joy in the simple things. As you can see from my blog, I often find excitement in everyday things. Whether it be my family, food, scrapbooking, home decor, or lifestyle crafts, I share them with the world as life changing events.

My background in design started many years ago, when at age 8 I decided to start scrapbooking. I enjoyed bonding with my mom and sisters, as we enjoyed creativity through pictures together. I studied at Utah Valley University and received a degree in Visual Arts & Communications with an emphasis in Graphic Design. I have worked for many companies using design including Pebbles in my Pocket, American Crafts, Creating Keepsakes Magazine, and as a contributor for a Utah Lifestyle Television show called Studio 5! Currently I am doing a lot of free-lance design work, and work on my own. I love finding design in everyday things, and although I don't post all my projects on my blog, I share my favorites with you. My priority is my family and my boys, and so if I take breaks from time to time from my blog, it is because my family comes first! Thanks for being understanding.

So you wonder, what else do I do other than spending time with my family, and creating??
Well I LOVE to cook, and have always wanted to be on a cooking show. I LOVE LOVE LOVE to snow and water ski. In fact, I even was a ski instructor in Southern Utah during my Freshmen year in college. I love to run, and stay in shape. I love being with my sisters. I love eating ice cream almost every night. I had my own little motorcycle at age 6. I don't wear a lot of jewelry, however I love to wear makeup & shopping for new outfits!.

All of us experience challenges, and I am not without. I am blind in one eye, and have been for 5 years. I often find frustration in the way I have had to change my life through my small handicap, but try to live in the moment and laugh at myself.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I would love to hear from you. Please email me at:

I love your blog and your positive outlook. Thanks for sharing all you do. My twin sister and I have a blog too. We don't do near as much on it since the pregnancies of #3. Www.welovebeingmoms.blogspot.com
