amylanedesigns is here!!

I have decided to start a business after college. 

I will be creating custom stationary, including cards for any occasion, made with unique materials and original construction. Each card is unique, being created with one of a kind materials.

I will also be offering scrapbooking services. I have been doing scrapbooks for friends and family for years. This service will include all the materials and labor costs. All you have to do is send me your pictures, and let me know what style you like, and I will do my best to create something you will love and enjoy for years to come!

I will be adding some of my photography at a later time. I have been traveling around the world for about 15 years, even living abroad for a while. Through my travels, I have enjoyed taking pictures, and have been selling them to others who enjoy the places I have roamed to!

If you are interested in any of these services, please email me at amylanedesigns@gmail.com

I will be adding pictures soon, as samples of my work. So stay tuned, and check back soon!!!

election thoughts...

So I watch The View almost everyday. I think that it is interesting what they have been talking about. Now, I am an undecided party member, and I straddle the line on a lot of issues. I think that The View has been largely one sided about their discussion of the upcoming presidential election, mostly because most of the panelists are democrats. I felt that this was the next action, since so many people listen to The View, I felt I should say something, so this is the message I sent them:

Because you discuss it so much on The View, I would like to know when we are going to start looking past Obama's race, and start looking at his actual agenda? I would like to know the same about Hilary. From what I am hearing, it sounds like everyone is merely listening to the flowery speeches of Obama and Hilary, and not questioning their true desires for our nation. I would like to know how they TRULY feel about nuclear issues, security risks in our country, real health care issues, and even how Obama thinks he is going to only raise taxes for the "rich" only. I am sick of hearing that all of us are looking at Obama about race. I am tired of thinking that we are going to have a president based solely on the color of their skin, and not their morals, the rights they believe in, or what is best for our country. I think priority one is keeping our country safe from warfare, nuclear weapons, and inhumane treatment of others. So I hope we can look past the fact that Hilary is a woman (because what does that really have to do with being president?) and that Obama is black (again, what does that have to do with his abilities?), and really start looking at the issues.
