Meet The Author

Hello! My name is Mandy, and I’m the creator, founder, and author behind Createfully Ever After.


Let’s start with the basics: my favorite color is pink, but I’m quite fond of purple, turquoise, and yellow as well. I like most colors actually. I like them so much that I’ve dyed my hair almost every color under the neon rainbow.

I also love animals, and I grew up caring for all different kinds: cats, dogs, rodents, birds, reptiles, and even horses. I was homeschooled up until the 9th grade when I entered public school for the remainder of my high school years.

I’d be remiss not to mention my great love for arts and crafts. I doodled and sketched my way through high school, and took pretty much any and all available art classes when I went to college.

I married my high school sweetheart shortly after graduating college. His name is Brian and he is my absolute best friend. A true testament of his love is the fact that we have five cats together and are still happily married! Those cats, in the order in which they entered our lives, are: Gimli, Cosmo, Phenix, Pepper, and Misty. And if you’d like to learn more about them, you’re in luck, because I’ve dedicated an entirely nerdy cat-lady page all about my them, listed in the navigation menu above.

I hope you enjoy this blog and my crochet patterns as much as I enjoy cats and crafting!
