Welcome to Curly Sue: an Amanda Condra Designs blog!

It's all in the (party) details!  I enjoy the little details that make everyday life special and parties fabulous.

I'm Amanda, a Hoosier at heart with all things preppy, pretty, and Southern on my mind. I currently live in Lafayette, Indiana with Wyatt and our cat, Sox.  I created this blog in 2010 as a way to share my life with friends and family but it soon turned into an outlet for sharing, not only my everyday life, but also things I love -- whether it is a favorite style trend, a new recipe, a tutorial for a DIY project, or a party inspiration.  I also own and operate a design based Etsy shop, Amanda Condra Designs, where I create invitations, party printables, and custom designs for clients.  

I'm a Lilly lover, have a passion for traveling, and love a well planned party.  I love all things that allow me to use my creativity.  I hope I can inspire other to do the same!  

One of my favorite quotes is "the universe is made of stories, not atoms" by Muriel Rukeyser.  We all have a story to tell and this is part of mine.  You can follow my adventures on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Bloglovin
