candy colored studio episode #103 - SWEETlady: amy ashworth of perfectly paisley design
SWEETlady amy ashworth and i met thanks to two of her sisters-in-law: desiree ashworth & emily adamson and the beehive bazaar (a local etsy-like market). in so many ways, her support of my art and creative pursuit have bolstered me when i needed it most. she is not only an amazing interior designer, but she has gifts in simplifying spaces and life. amy is an amazing & loyal friend and a fierce protector of her family and friends. she lives a brave, authentic life and is not afraid to be herself...not afraid of what others think of her...and because of her gumption, brings so much love and light to all who know and meet her.
