Hey there, I'm Amanda, I am 33 and live in a cute little town near Toronto Ontario Canada!
I am an art teacher and artist. I love making collages with all of the beautiful things people generously swap with me! It's my fave part of this!
I started on here a few years back now after my grandfather passed away. It was a really hard time for me and this gave me the distraction I needed. It brought up my spirits again and it also lead me back into art which I recently went back to school for as well! My life is quite different since I started on here and I couldn't be more grateful..
I LOVE music!!!! I am an avid concert goer and enjoy a huge variety of everything! I honestly like a little bit of every era and genre... but my heart lives in Rock n Roll...
