Hi, I’m Amy!
I’ve always been a fan of creativity, interior design and architecture. I studied and earned my degrees in Communicative Disorders, and became a Speech Language Pathologist many years ago. My career allows me to be crafty and creative with the children I serve, but I wanted to create a platform for sharing some of my DIY’s, artwork and interior styling so I developed a social media page a few years ago. Family and friends always thought I was crazy for constantly decorating and creating, so when it came to choosing a name for my alter ego, I decided on Crazy Chic Designs! I love designing rooms that are glamorous, yet casual and comfortable, and I enjoy sharing my styling tips with you!
Shortly after creating my social presence, I entered and won a contest by HomeGoods called HomeGoods Happiest Fan, and I was treated to an amazing shopping spree and prizes! They really liked my styling and encouraged me to share my images via Instagram. I started gaining a following, and discovered so many other people out there who enjoyed interior styling as much as I did. I have made so many wonderful friendships, and the support of the Instagram community is just amazing!
Fast forward, I was asked to be a design contributor for the Happy by Design Pinterest page for HomeGoods, and later invited to be a monthly writer for their blog! I still feel like this whole experience has been a dream, come true! Currently, I work with a few other companies as a brand ambassador, and I also enjoy doing interior design for a few local clients. Moral of the story, always pursue your passions, as you never know just how far your dreams will bring you!
I’ve been with my fabulous husband for 18 years, and we have three beautiful little ones. First came one, then came twins! That was a huge surprise, but now I wouldn’t have it any other way. There’s never a dull moment in our home, as I’m sure many of you can relate to!
