Hello Everybody!! Welcome to Polka Dots, Checks and Stripes! My name is Amber, and this is my blog. Much like the title would lead you to believe, this blog is about a little bit of everything. Mostly about my life before, after and during my diagnosis of Major Depression, Bipolar Disorder and Anxiety. My hope is that others like me will read my entries, and leave with an understanding that things will get better.

Okay, so I thought this blog was going to be mainly about my disorders; but I was clearly wrong. I’ll still have my days where I address them, typically when I’ve gone missing for a week at a time; but for now, I want to keep focusing on my happy place. It’s a good place for me to be.

So it’s going to be lots of crafts, DIY projects and yummy recipes!

I believe that everyone has a gift to give to the world, I’m fairly certain that mine is laughter. 

I enjoy emails, and love to make new friends. Never hesitate to drop a line.

– a Little Bit About Me –

  • I love to workout, but I don’t look like it ha
  • I’m a photographer
  • I have an addiction to Pinterest, and am proud to say that I’ve actually started making some of the projects I’ve pinned
  • I have 16 nieces and nephews. They range from just walking to full on teenage angst. Expect to see some kids projects on this blog.
