Airdrie Automotive Services Ltd. is a Family run Business since 1998 focusing on personal Auto and light truck service. Mike and Deb Moved to Airdrie in 1995 and it just felt like home. Starting a Business from scratch was no easy task as no bank wanted to take a chance on a young man eager to start a Automotive business. After a couple of rejections from local banks we realized that we needed to step up our Business plan and make it known that we were the type of business to succeed in Airdrie. Thank you RBC for taking a chance on Airdrie Automotive Services Ltd. Mike opened for business August 1 ,1998 by him self working in a brand new shop size of 1500 sq ft. in the Lakeside Business Center and business was very steady for one person .Population was just over 15,000 people. After about 7 months word of mouth was kicking in and it was time to hire some help .In 2000 Airdrie Automotive acquired another bay next door and now has a stand alone building 1/2 block from the old shop .

I started Amandamazing Art in 2010. A formally trained Artist, Art Instructor and Disney Muralist at that time I gave up my career to be a stay at home Mom to my four little girls. My husband worked very long hours in downtown Calgary so I wanted to do something that still allowed me to be a stay at home Mom. Face paint was mostly on weekends for birthday parties and events so my girls had Daddy time on the weekend while Mom was working. The company name "Amandamazing" was actually a nickname local Moms had for me, so it made an adorable company name. Having a background in drawing, sculpting and painting the face paint eventually progressed into body art, theatrical makeup and film makeup certification. I attended night classes and weekend workshops to train which also allowed me to be home. I am now a permit Makeup Artist with Alberta Film Union IATSE 212, soon to be a full member. I still face paint, donate to charities and volunteer makeup demos to several RVSD schools.
