Welcome to Cultivate Create!

Hey, y’all! I’m Amanda and I’m so glad you stopped by Cultivate Create! I live in Opp, Alabama with my husband, Jared, and two daughters, Katlyn and Ashlyn. I’m a Jesus loving, coffee drinking, low carb eating, makeup loving, guitar playing creative who loves fall way too much, believes Christmas is better when it’s over the top, and has a HUGE soft spot in my heart for my hometown.  Cultivate Create started in 2013 as a way to share our home renovation and DIY inspiration and seasonal craft projects. I also started sharing about my struggle with weight loss and my journey to get healthy. While since 2013, Cultivate Create has traditionally been a DIY/Decor/Lifestyle blog, my love for my hometown and desire to see it thriving and growing has impacted my focus and what I share here!  As my role in my small town’s revitalization has changed and grown, so has my heart to tell our story. I believe in Opp, and I believe not only in my hometown, but in other small towns across the country. Small town America is making a comeback! Over the past two years, I have increasingly used Cultivate Create as a platform to tell our story, to motivate others to shop local (#localfocus), to show that it IS possible for us to have a comeback story. It IS possible for revitalization to happen. And it can happen your hometown, too!
