Amy of McCrafty Gals, MomCom Scholarship Recipient
by Melissa Madole-Kopp
Today we’re featuring our first scholarship recipient. We hope to offer more scholarships as the scholarship fund grows.
Amy of McCrafty Gals, moved to Austin last year, leaving a successful business in New Mexico. Although very determined, she is finding it difficult to move to a new city, raise two kids and re-launch her business. She is thrilled to be able to attend MomCom and get those creative juices flowing!
MK: Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Amy: I LOVE being a wife and mother! I’m super crafty too and enjoy late night jaunts to my craft room to be in my quiet space. Sometimes I create gobs of goods and sometimes I create nothing at all but, it’s my happy place. I love spending time with my girlfriends too, without the kiddos. It’s important to recharge my spirit with women that lift me up and that I adore.
MK: What personal accomplishment has given you the greatest satisfaction?
Amy: #1 My children, Savannah 4 years and Jameson 4 months. Before I had kiddos, I owned a Natural Bath Products store. I loved creating on a daily basis and coming up with new scents and blends. I was able to share my talents. I held classes and spa parties. It was so much fun! I met interesting people and networked regularly. It was my creative bliss. I still make bath goodies here and there but my creative interest has shifted and changed shape to paper crafting and teaching classes with paper. It brings me joy!
MK: Have you ever failed at something, and if so what did you learn from it?
Amy: I’ve failed at a lot but, each time I pick myself up, dust myself off and keep on truckin’. There’s always something to be learned from a failed attempt. No matter the depth, you can always come back from it?. I’m going to quote a song from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (It’s my mantra and I’m a mommy so that’s what my motivational speaking boils down to) ‘Up from the ashes grow the roses of success.’ Brilliant!”
MK: What do you hope to take away from MomCom on January 26th?
Amy: New friendships and networking! Sparks of inspiration, on how I can expand on using my talents as a business and blogger. I’m new to Austin so I’m looking forward to meeting fabulous local business women and moms.
MK: If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Amy: Unlimited Pixie Dust! I would love to fly around and make things light as a feather to carry with me (my family). Oh, the places I would see and all the traffic I would avoid! It’s such a practical superpower.
Register today and meet Amy and other likeminded women at MomCom Austin on January 26th.
