Congrats to awesleydesigns, winner of this week's Team Undiscovered treasury challenge
Congratulations to A. W. Designs, Team Undiscovered's second treasury challenge winner! We had some beautiful entries this week, and Amanda's Nautical entry literally won by a nose. Thanks to everyone who entered and voted, your support and team participation are what make Team Undiscovered such a success and a positive force!
I asked Amanda Wesley, shop owner of A. W. Designs, to tell me a little bit about herself and her Etsy shop.
'I owe my creative pursuits to my family. My mom taught me how to crochet when I was pregnant with my first child. From [that time, my creativity] has just grown.'
Amanda's design skills blossomed when her family decided to make each other gifts for Christmas rather than buy them. Her beautiful creations stem from a place of practicality and eco-consciousness, but also have a playful side.
'I hate throwing things away. [I try to] transform something that is destined for the landfill into an item that someone would want.'
'[Being a mother of three] I act like a child most of the time. My style can go from chic to funky and everything in between.'
