Friends, I’d like to introduce myself! My name is Sam; I am a wife, mother to the sweetest boys you’ll ever meet, and editorial assistant for Production Media. As you can imagine, I keep myself busy with my family and the running of my household, but when I’m not doing that, I spend time on home projects and digital designs for my Etsy shop.


My husband and I got married on 08-08-08 in a beautiful ceremony at a beach on the Space Coast of Florida. Right after our honeymoon we moved to the Bay Area of California, because my husband got a job as the Director of Technical Arts at a Presbyterian church in that area.

We found out we were going to be blessed with a bundle of joy around Mothers Day 2009. Shortly after, the husband started looking for a job that would bring us closer to family. My family was still in Florida, and his was in Michigan.

A few months after we had our little man, we flew out to Indiana to interview at a large church…two weeks later we were moving to the Indianapolis area so the husband could start his new job as Technical Director for Northview Church.

Since then, we have made some wonderful friends, and built a beautiful home of our own!

I started this blog to document things I was doing around the house for friends and family who aren’t close. Over the years, Atkinson Drive has morphed into a lifestyle blog that focuses on all things DIY, crafting, cooking, and parenting. I hope that through this blog I can be a creative inspiration for everyone who visits!
