colorstory colorstory designs is a small, creative design business based around the color found from RECYCLED m Everything I make is made from recycled magazines- and I try to find the most colorful parts of the magazines to create one-of-a-kind pieces of art for you!

My work includes picture frames, jewelry, wine charms, magnets, mirrors and shadowboxes. Everything is created by me in my cute blue house on Bainbridge Island, WA- where I live with my supportive husband Jason and our cuddly golden retriever Koa.

5 things you may not know about me……

1- my happy place is relaxing on a beach, listening to the waves, reading a book, margarita in hand. 🌊🍍🌴

2- I have been married 15 years to my best friend!! We honeymooned on Kauai, Hawaii and we’ve been beach vacationers ever since.

3- I have a Bachelors degree in Architecture (as does my husband- we met in college!) I worked in small offices for close to 8 years…. My projects included grocery stores, retail shops and custom homes.

4- I have 2 super fun kiddos. ❤️Our son Ben is 8 and daughter Emily is 3.

5- I LOVE dogs!!!! Our family has a 10 month old Bernese Mountain dog named Tucker. He is very handsome and has absolutely no idea that he weighs 95 pounds (probably still not done growing either!!!).

My Story

colorstory designs began as a way for myself, Amy Gibson, and my best friend, to be creative and have fun together. We met at an architecture firm in Seattle, WA in 2007, and began our small green design business shortly thereafter. At the end of 2010, my friend needed to pursue a new job in Kansas City area where she works with a small organization that fights poverty throughout the world. Even though I've continued colorstory designs on my own, the original concept was created by both of us, and she is still my best friend and a huge part of my life!

Everything I make is made from recycled magazines- and I try to find the most colorful parts of the magazines to create one-of-a-kind pieces of art for you! My work includes picture frames, jewelry, wine charms, magnets, mirrors and shadowboxes. Everything is created by me in Tulsa, OK- where I live with my supportive husband Jason and young son Ben. I hope you enjoy looking through my etsy shop and please recycle- it's important!

Love your profile pic!
Ordered the message board as a Christmas gift for my mother. She LOVES the look and quality. She's just waiting for my husband to come hang her fantastic new piece! Thank you for another winning gift!!
