I Fancy That

Feeling the Love

January 20, 2012

Hello bloggies!

In honor of Valentine’s day, appreciating all things crafted into hearts, and just feeling the love this year, I wanted to gather a little bit of inspiration for this love filled day that is quickly approaching. The most special valentines, to me, are ones that are completely handmade. The ones where personality shines through and the sentiment has been crafted from the hands. So here’s to handmade, and here’s to sharing love with that special someone this year. Stay tuned for a DIY idea inspired straight from the board below!

Meet Aimee!

Pardon my manners! Although you’ve already seen several of Aimee’s posts, it occurred to me that you haven’t been formally introduced! My bad. Let’s fix that, shall we…

Hi there! I told you a bit about myself in this post but in case you missed it, here’s a little bit about me…

My name is Aimee, and I have been with the Betsywhite team since March. I started out as an intern, and have been quite excited to transition into more of a part-time role as a designer and I help out with whatever needs to be done here in the studio. I am a recent graduate of SCAD here in Atlanta, and I love being part of the Betsywhite team.

Name: Aimee Strickland
Location: Decatur, GA
Place of Origin: Atlanta, GA
Cute clutch or hold-everything handbag?: Usually, I go for a cute clutch, but sometimes you just need a big hold-everything bag, especially on those days where you want your book and a few extra pens and maybe a notebook and journal.
What’s the one thing in your purse you can’t live without?: My writing utensil of choice. I like to have a wide variety of choices when it comes to writing down my next most important thought.
Current obsession: Anything vintage and a little bit rusty – it adds so much character to any piece.
Favorite source of inspiration: Pinterest is great, but magazines are a go-to for me (especially Real Simple and Dwell)!

Aimee is usually pretty busy here in the studio but she’s always got great DIY ideas stirring in her head so she’ll be sharing those with you from time to time. We’re happy to have her on the Flights of Fancy team!
