About Us

You’ve probably heard the phrase: “Necessity is the Mother of all Inventions,” well this certainly applies to Amanda Crawford Designs.

Myrna's first product innovation was created in 1994.   A pillow, designed to hold and support her mother's books while reading after suffering a debilitating stroke. She named it the BookBuddy.   This is perfect for any person suffering from arthritis who wants to enjoy a weightless, hands-free reading experience .

Several new products' followed, the Paperback BookBudd, Elegant Bookwor and the successful introduction of the eBudd and iBuddy to the digital world.

We sell the ultimate in reading comfort for Books (Hard and Soft cover), iPad's, iPad Mini's, Kindle's, Nook's, Android tablets and laptops.   Our beautiful pillows are filled with a specially blended poly-fiber that is non-allergic and distributes the weight of the heaviest books and electronic devices.   Our products are designed to help absorb the heat, weight and eliminate the strain on your hands, wrists and arms.   We create home decor items that lead the industry for handcrafted designs that are beautiful and affordable.
