Busy Creating Memories was established in 2011. But after the death of Amber’s mother in 2015, Busy Creating Memories went through a rebranding. We reevaluated what was really important and how we could offer resources to families that encourage and support those values.
While reminiscing on her most cherished moments with her mother, Amber realized that it was the little everyday, ordinary moments that she cherished the most. The times she was cooking beside her mom. The moments of learning to bake, sew, crochet, and garden at her mother’s side. It was the values her mother taught and the time she spent with her children. We know the importance of making the most out of the fleeting moments as families.
That is where Busy Creating Memories can help! We help you create the moments! We share easy-to-implement activities that you can do with your families to create memories that become legacies. Our toolbox includes:
Hi, I’m Amber! I am a Full Time Mother, Blogger, and Nature/Fine Art Photographer.
I grew up in Wyoming and attended college in Idaho where I studied Communications and English/Creative Writing. It was there that I met and married my husband in 2002 after a shockingly short 2-week courtship, 3-month engagement. Yes, there is a story there, maybe one day I might be brave enough to tell it.
My Husband served as a Military Police Officer in the United States Army for 5 years which ignited my love of travel and experiencing new foods and cultures. We have lived in Idaho, Germany, Kansas, back to Idaho, down to Utah, and due to a series of miraculous events (yes another story), we are now located in the beautiful Ozarks in the region of Northwest Arkansas.
I became a traditional stay-at-home Mom in 2004 when my first son was born. And I started my first entrepreneur business shortly after my first daughter was born in 2009. I explored the world of Etsy and created fashion accessories, sales, and more. In 2011 my world turned to the online venture of creating and growing the Busy Creating Memories blog followed shortly after by AmberLouise Photography.
We are blessed with two sons (18+), a Special Needs teenage daughter, and a firecracker daughter in elementary school.
I’ve had the privilege to work with national & international brands including Tyson Foods, Kroger, Walmart, Kraft Foods, LEGO, Goldfish, and many more. My work has been featured on MSN, Foodgawker, Monroe and Main, Kraft Kitchen Experts, and more.
I am also a stock image contributor to adobe stock images, shutterstock, alamy, istockphoto, and more.

WHY THE HUMMINGBIRD?
The Hummingbird was my mother’s favorite bird. She was near obsessed with them. She always collected trinkets, figurines, and music boxes that all depicted hummingbirds. She would always have hummingbird feeders out all summer long.
The hummingbird symbol represents intelligence, beauty, devotion, and love. They are respected as fierce fighters and defenders of their homes and also represent healing, joy, and good luck.
When my mom passed away, I could think of no better symbol to represent the purpose of Busy Creating Memories. We adopted the hummingbird mascot as our way to honor the legacy she left behind.
