About Me

I launched Amanda Doherty Designs in a humble little Etsy shop with less than ten listings back in 2019.

Equipped with a makerspace membership, the Google search bar, and a dream, I launched this business unaware that one year later I would be setting aside my 9-5 job to focus entirely on creating Colorado-inspired content and custom engraving services to some of the best customers in the world. 

That Etsy shop is still going strong today but I decided to give my favorite Colorado listings and Fort Collins engraving services a new home. I’m so glad you’re here!

    Meet my clients

    Air France

    To celebrate a new direct flight from Denver to Paris, Air France reached out to request 80 custom engraved mountains to gift to share holders and other key members who made this flight possible. I was SO excited to work with this client and hope to provide more personalized gifts and décor in the future. 

    B’s Brew

    What I would give to visit Freedom, WI one day to see this absolutely precious coffee shop! Bridget contacted me to request 15 of my custom flight boards complete with her own logo in the center of the boards. If you ever have the chance to work with Bridget, she is an absolute joy. 

    54 thirty

    54 Thirty Rooftop

    This was SUCH a fun project to complete. This beautiful rooftop venue is the highest place to enjoy a luxury cocktail in the Mile High City of Denver and they requested that I engrave mountains inscribed with a message that the table was being cleaned. Again, SO clever and such a welcome opportunity to travel down to Denver for an impromptu date.

    life in fort collins

    Move over Jeff Bezos, you’ve had your fun ✌️ today is all about the little guys 🥂

Can I just say, I LOVE that there’s a day specifically to celebrate the #smallbusinessowners who have taken the risk to set aside the stability of a steady paycheck to bet on their dreams and break the molds life may have set for them.

Sure the convenience of 2-day delivery can be tempting, but I just can’t bring myself to support large corporations anymore and let me tell you why.

It’s because I’ve seen the smile that pops on my kiddo’s face when that iconic cha-ching sound pings unexpectedly on my phone. 

It’s because I’ve spent more than a few nights binging our favorite TV shows while Matt removes the day’s splinters from my hands so I can hand sketch the designs for the orders that just came in.

It’s because I’ve seen Matt learn more about shipping rates and deadlines than any USPS worker should know. 

But mostly it’s because I’ve seen the feast or famine roller coaster that somehow has kept food on our table, doctor bills paid, tithe in the basket, and a roof over our heads. 

2021 changed the game for many of us, I won’t deny it. Our family took a risk back in June to rely fully on our two small businesses @amandadohertydesigns and @amandadohertypress with no safety nets and no plan Bs. 

And look how God turned up 😘

Cheers to all of my fellow small business peeps this morning. I’m rooting for you today just as much as we’re prepping to celebrate #smallbusinesssaturday ourselves.

Embrace the day, friends. #shopsmall and help your neighbors, friends, and colleagues set themselves up for a strong start to the new year. #shoplocal so your investment will drive growth and influence in your city. 

Give a shout-out to your favorite small businesses in the comments so we can support them, and then hit you the link in my bio to snag some special custom gifts and ornaments for your loved ones this year 🎄

    Enough about me,
    What can I make for you today?

    Cutting Boards & Charcuterie

    I’m going to be straight with you — my kitchen isn’t large enough to pack with unnecessary items and because I prefer open shelving, my kitchenware has to be not only practical — but gorgeous. 

    I don’t like cooking or baking enough to spend countless hours in the kitchen each day unless it looks truly inspiring. That’s why these custom engraved recipe cutting boards, charcuterie boards, and bread boards are my favorite listings. 

    Pick out your favorite for a wedding, birthday, anniversary, bridal shower — you name it, it’s the perfect gift. Then choose to engrave a copy of your favorite handwritten recipe, a custom logo, or even a hand drawn image from one of your kiddos. 

    Polymer Clay Jewelry

    Have you joined the latest craze of polymer clay earrings? Lightweight, unique, and hypoallergenic, they are as practical as they are beautiful. 

    In true Colorado fashion, I live an active lifestyle and would MUCH prefer to invest in new camping gear or activewear than expand my regular wardrobe. These earrings can take your minimal or capsule wardrobe and elevate every outfit into a fashion statement. Check out some of my most recent additions.
