I am Amanda, or you can call me Mannabelle, but I am who I seem to be, no more, no less, but complex and ever changing, a multifaceted gem albeit a rare one indeed.

I am love in the rawest form. I am a beauty to behold in many ways. When I walk into a room, I have been told that my smile brightens it and my personality is truly infectious, viral if you will. I am a strong willed girl, a highly sarcastic and witty girl, but truly a loyal one when it comes to close friends and family. I am forever there to pick you up when you fall and to steady you before you do. I am prone to breaking into bursts of song at the most inopportune of moments and my laugh is something to behold unto itself. I enjoy many things in life, whether it’s a good glass of red wine, or Blue October on the iPod while taking a bath with a good book. Another side of me would be cuddling up on the couch with a cold beer during a football game. I am blunt and honest by nature, but one who can lend an ear as well as her heart when need be.

I am cultured, sophisticated, outgoing, yet introverted at

times. I am open and honest, not really ashamed of much. Some people say that I am intimidating, I believe if you find me intimidating then you are just insecure. No one has ever killed over from a “NO”. Just saying. I get bored easily, as I have ADD, not the excuse the real thing. I can be very literal, which is sometimes annoying. I am a grammar whore, and make no apologies for it.

I enjoy creating beautiful things and sharing those things with others. I hope to get to know a lot of you in the community and learn from each of you.

Touching the world

I don’t want to be famous; I just want to touch the world. I see things that are beautiful that others may not and I think I want to capture that and share it with the world. I find that everything is imperfect but perfectly so. I always say I am perfectly imperfect and that is the way the world is. There are no straight lines. No face is perfectly even on both sides. There is always …

It is amazing what can send us on a journey to create. I create many things. Writings, crafts, photography, painting, and drawing (although I am not that great at that). Right now I am creating a beautiful piece for my mom’s birthday in October that I hope she will love. Someone made it out of wood and I am painting it to bring it to life. I am really good at that. I can’t sculp…
