She is seriously hilarious, sweet to a fault, an awesome graphic designer and an all around GREAT friend to have! Without further adu I'm going to let her tell you a little bit about herself...

Hey lovely Cookie Louise Pleaze readers! Amy from A is for Ampersand here. I'm so honored to be spotlighted by the ever fantastic Christina. I MIGHT be her biggest fan, so it's good to be here.

I started my humble little corner of the internet about two years ago but never really got serious about it until last year. As a trained technical writer, I started my blog looking for a creative outlet for my writing outside of writing software manuals (my full-time job at the time. Eek! I know! So awful.) Since starting, however, my writerly endeavors have turned toward my full-blown addictions to thrifting, sewing, graphic design, and all things glorious. I'm also a pretty hardcore cat lady, but I promise I try to keep the cat lady chaos to a minimum. :)

Over on A is for Ampersand, I run a couple of features, including Monday Crushes, and $2 Thrifty Thursdays where I challenge myself weekly to find a treasure at the thrift store for $2 or less. It's always great fun, and I'd love for you to join me! I also like to post free blog clipart every Wednesday, so if you're in the market for some tape strips, starbursts, or other pretty things, take a peek!

As I continue to blog the things I love, I'm continually baffled by how supportive the blogging community is. Ask any blogger and they'll tell you the biggest perk to the blogosphere is the like-minded ladies you meet. Living in a pretty conservative town means I don't live near a lot of people into the thrifting scene, so it's always pretty darn great to meet people just like me with similar interests.

Thanks so much to Christina and all of you for letting me share a little bit of my world with you. Come on over and visit!

(isn't Royal the cutest?!)
