About Me

It's me...Amanda Mischell (like Michele and not Mitchell.)  I have had many careers in my lifetime, and owning my own business is by far my favorite, and my most challenging.  

When Covid hit in early 2020, I was a traveling Financial Project Manager and Implementation Specialist.  But you know who loses their job when there's a nationwide shutdown?  Business to business traveling project managers, that's who.  So, I took the opportunity to take a hobby I love...washi tape, planning and journaling and make it into a real business.  I had been dabbling in selling washi on Etsy prior to that, but this gave me the chance to take it to the next level....and what a ride!  It's not always easy, but it's always rewarding.

To get to know me, here is a little bit of my life trivia:

Where Am I from?  Ohio, born and raised.  I'm a city girl...yes, Columbus is a big city!  I appreciate the country but my heart is the city life.

Am I married?  Yes!  I am married to the most wonderful human being on the planet.  We have been married for 14 years and have a blended family that include two beautiful grown children.  

What is my degree?  I have a BA in Elementary Education with a concentration in Reading Comprehension.  Say, what!  Yup!

Why Am I Not Teaching?  That's a good question, but I say, teaching comes in all shapes and sizes.  I have trained and taught many individuals how to balance general ledger accounts, how to do bank reconciliations, how to keep organized, etc.  It's just a different classroom than what I imagined.  But teaching is teaching.

What Do I Have Planned For Amanda Mischell Designs? So, so much!  You will see lots of new stickers and journaling papers, as well as, the best washi tape available.  I also plan to continue to introduce new washi tapes in my own designs. 

What is My Favorite Pastime?  Well, of course planning and journaling.  That's a given.  But, I also like to draw and color and scrapbook and make mini books.  I enjoy music and reading....listening to audio books while I do my shipping is the best.  And I LOVE to travel!  I just can't do it as much as I would like nowadays. 

What is My Planner Line-up for 2022?  I use the following planners: Hobonichi Weeks (Weekly notes and appointments;) Hobonichi Cousin (Monthly calendar, Memory keeping, Home improvement notes;) Erin Condren Life Planner (Business notes and Customer requests;) Erin Condren Daily Duo (Mapping out busy days;) Kikki K Personal Planner (Year over year lists and projects;) and finally, Levenger Notebook (Master To-Do list.)
