Faery Ink

Faery Ink was born in May of 2003. It has always been a site about helping people express themselves through visual creativity: first as a pixel tutorial and line art membership site, now as a hodge podge of artsy stuff from art journaling to tutorials to digital stamps and all matter of things creative that hold my interest enough to make me want to share with you!
I am Amanda, a.k.a. Manda. I am the quiet girl that prefers to look and listen than speak or do, usually. I often do things backwards. For instance, I married young and had all my children before I was 25. Now I am in college, studying to be an administrative assistant (for now) and still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up (really). I became a widow in 2007 but later went on to marry my best friend and the love of my life on Halloween 2013. I have four children from my first marriage who never cease to amaze and challenge me and two stepsons who live far away but always manage to crack me up when they get to come for a visit =) I am also a proud Grammy to an adorable grandson - my sweet little bubby Aiden.
My passion is creating. I create in so many ways: drawing, painting, collaging, writing, cooking, etc… I am a licensed cosmetologist in the state of South Carolina but I do not work in that field. Did I mention I have anxiety disorder with panic attacks? My diet, journaling and creativity helps to keep the panic attacks at bay but social situations can be difficult for me if I haven’t had time to mentally prepare for the experience. I have had anxiety disorder my whole life, though I didn’t realize it. It was made much worse during my first marriage which was very abusive and left me with all kinds of issues I am still working on.
I like to look at the bright side of all things. I refuse to dwell in sadness or misery and I try not to surround myself with it. I like to create things that will bring a smile to someone’s face – meaning most of the stuff I make is bright, colorful and usually pretty cartoony. I have known the depths of darkness and I hope the things I make can serve as a beacon of light for others who have tread those waters too. I feed my inner child with a large spoon and she is pleasantly plump for it!
