hi, i’m molly!
my goal in life is to be surrounded by pretty things!
i’m married to gid(eon) and we have two kids — arlo and izzy. we live in the valley (the one in los angeles) and have mostly fixed our house up and i’ve been itching to move for years now…!
i am also very passionate about all the things i’m very passionate about– such as my air fryer, my love of salmon (we call it salmy), sparkling water (we call it sodey lol) and my family has some sort of special attachment to the mamma mia movies.
oh and my son dresses like a skeleton every weekend for two years now.
happy to have you here!
how and when
did you start your blog?
i started this blog MANY years ago when i was working as a part time TV editor looking for a creative outlet.
the reason i named it almost makes perfect was because it was kind of an ongoing joke that i wasn’t actually great at crafting, cooking, etc. that i mess things up on the regular, but this blog was meant to embrace that fact.
it’s way more fun to make things and not take yourself too seriously, be ok with messing up!
AMP started as a diy blog, my mission was to make modern crafts that felt elevated. i spent many years creating and got very tired once i had a kid, as one does. i still love to make things, i just do it way less.
so now the blog has since evolved into me sharing about our house, motherhood, entertaining, basically just all the things i’m passionate about!
