My name is Amy Anderson and I’m a crafting and DIY expert. I’m a two time craft book author and product line maker. I have been a creator for over forty years.

I’ve been creative since I was little. I always had to take art classes, and I remember being the youngest person by far at sewing camp when I was 10. I hated sewing camp.

At the time, I didn’t appreciate the gift that my parents were giving me – but these days I am very thankful. No only do I have a lot of crafty skills, but now I’m blogging about crafting as my full-time job. And it’s the best job ever.

I started I Love Origami in 2024 because I wanted a place that I could share my appreciation of paper folding. When it comes to crafting, origami is one of the simplest, least messy crafts out there. For the most part, all you need is paper.

It’s also one of the “OG” crafts. How many crafts have been around since the 17th century? If you consider yourself a crafter you need to try origami – so I’m glad you’re here.

My other blogs are Mod Podge Rocks and DIY Candy.

You can see my professional resume here. Here are 10 things about me that you should know.

  1. I live in the Portland, Oregon area. I’ve lived all over the country but west is best for me.
  2. I’m a published author and I’ve written two books.
  3. I love crafting, but I also love cars, frozen yogurt, and outdoor activities.
  4. I have an undergrad degree in Forestry, an MBA in Business and have had 11 jobs since I graduated from college (commitment issues anyone?)
  5. The color orange is my favorite. Blue is a close second. I love bright colors.
  6. My favorite movie of all time is Star Wars.
  7. I constantly battle a sugar and coffee addiction – I love candy and lattes.
  8. I have a fear of flying but I do it anyway.
  9. The most appealing thing in the world is a good sense of humor.
  10. I seem to work best when things are chaotic and I have a ton to do.
