WHAT'S WITH THE "MCKEY"
It's my middle name! "McKey" is also:
My grandma's maiden name, my mom's middle name, my cousin Bennett's middle name, and my cousin Maddie's middle name
My family also boasts three Jameses and countless Peters.
My favorite things
The last dog I've seen, lambs, Highland cows (google them), my nine best friends I've had since middle school + Sara, Harbor Springs, my fam, eating food.
Hi! I'm Amanda Orr and I'm the artists/designer behind
Amanda McKey Designs
When I'm not doing something artsy I'm probably:
Eating cheese & drinking wine
Feeding my dog people food
House-hunting with my manfriend
Spending time with my people: a mix of 17 cousins, aunts, uncles, gfs, bfs, and our matriarch, Moom!
WHO IS MOOM?
Moom is short for "Mooma" aka my grandma and favorite person. She's the reason I do anything artistic AT ALL.
All nine of us cousins used to spend an individual week at Camp Mooma (creative name!) every summer.
During my time at Camp Mooma, sweet, little Moom spent hours teaching me to sew, setting me up with an array of art supplies, and feeding me a portion of crêpes and Papa's Famous Chicken Wings equal to her love.
Although I gained an average of 8 lbs each summer at Camp, I left with a skillset that would keep me neck deep in messy projects for life (and a pocket full of cookies!)
