About Amy
It's hard for Amy Tan to imagine where her life would be had she not fallen in love with scrapbooking in 2007. This hobby has afforded her so many amazing opportunities—including a number of signature lines with American Crafts, many of her projects published in a variety of magazines, her own book, and the chance to meet so many inspiring people—that she is endlessly grateful for. When she's not at home in Los Angeles, California with two mischievous Jack Russell Terriers, her long-time partner, JC and their adorable son, Jack, she is traveling, finding great places to eat, and doing her best to enjoy every moment. All while Instagramming everything along the way.

Amy loves salted caramel anything, doggy cuddles, baby giggles, palm trees, riding her beach cruiser, and nachos. Always nachos.

What do you believe with all of your heart? With kindness, anything can happen.

What do you teach, write, blog, and talk incessantly about? Food and fun adventures.

When did you get your start? Does grade school count...when I made friendship bracelets and magazine collages?

When did you know that this was your path? When I started getting paid for what I loved doing in my free time.

Where is your favorite place on earth? There are too many to name—Kauai, Barcelona, and Australia are all tied for first.

Where do you go to be inspired? Outside.

Why are you here at BPC? It's an amazing community of wonderful folks.

Why do you love your life? It's so full of blessings.

How do you do everything you do? One thing at a time, along with some proper planning, and a bit of luck.

How can we learn more about you? I blog a lot at www.amytangerine.com/blog.
