Welcome to Serenity Now!
I'm Amanda: stay-at-home wife and mom of two girls and a boy, avid Target-shopper and mocha drinker, living in a 1970s fixer-upper in Virginia.
This blog was born in 2008, out of a desire to fashion a creative outlet and add a little bit of Serenity to my life at home. I started out by sharing funny stories from our home life, but as my blog grew, so did my passion for writing about my creative projects. And yes, the blog title is a nod to that famous Seinfeld line, which I utter on a daily basis.
I blog about Home, Food, Crafts, and Family, but I strive for authenticity here. Readers can relate to me because I try to be as open and honest as possible...I'm not afraid to share real life, and real life is imperfect.
You'll find realistic inspiration here.
Whether you are a wife or mom who works or stays home, or a single career girl, we're all searching for Creative Solutions for Staying Sane. My goal for Serenity Now is to provide readers with simple and affordable ideas that they can easily try on their own. My tutorials include lots of photos and step by step instructions that you can follow along with at home. If I can make you smile or laugh while you're reading, then I consider that the icing on the cake!
So, sit down and stay awhile. You can always view my Project Gallery, but here are a just few examples of what you'll find...
All of this is in addition to blogging tips and tricks, and a weekly link party for bloggers around the world to share their best post of the week. (Every Friday to Sunday) I also love to interact with readers on my Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google+ pages.
I think you'll find I have a lot of fun in store for you here, and I hope you'll stick around. Email me at amandaserenitynow(at)gmail(dot)com if you have more questions. I love to hear from my readers!
