    some exciting news!

    Yes I know it’s cheesy but I’m just so excited. When I announced that I was closing my business, one of my customers and new friends Chanda Mackey reached out to me in obedience to the whisper that God put on her heart. After much prayer, discussion and meeting with she and her husband last week I have decided to pass the torch to her! I will be training her on how to make the teeny stamped bands as well as other items that I currently sell. She will be making some of your favorites so that you can still get your items to celebrate life’s events. I know many of…

    hey there, I have some big news

    It’s hard to start this post…I mean I haven’t blogged in forever and a day so how do I start it? Like I’ve been blogging consistently? Do I need to reintroduce myself? Do I just act like everything is the same? The truth is, I don’t know where to start because this is a post unlike any I’ve written in my 14 years of having this business. It’s so weird to even come up with text to write what I’m about to say. So instead of just dragging this on, I’ll say what I came to say – it is time for this season of Amy Cornwell Designs to end.…

It’s more than just me. I live in a small town – the kind of small town where there’s just 1800 people. We have a small country post office with two employees.

    biz tips: kicking a creative funk

    The last few months have been slow in the shop – the normal summer lull. I’ve been unmotivated and quite honestly in a creative funk.

Be sure to leave your own in the comments below. have an encouragement wall in your studio/office I just recently moved my sewing/computer desk under my encouragement wall, so that when I’m working on the blog, shop or Natural Living Real Life, I can look up and see…

    the merging of two passions

    For the last few months, I’ve been in my slow season for the business. I’ve gone on this health journey and started a new blog since then so I have to assume God has allowed all of this to happen together knowing that otherwise I wouldn’t have had time to start sharing what I’m learning. I’ve been really excited to share with others about food and essential oils as medicine, which in turn has made me less excited about making jewelry. Which has made me sad to think about. I do feel like God has given me the gift of creativity, so I don’t ever see myself not being creative –…
