Let us help you create a legacy of memories.

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.

Meet Amber!

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.

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.
