Hi there! My name is Brittany, welcome to by blog! I’m a fierce accountant by day, and a zealous DIYer by night. I am a career driven business woman with an artistic mind and creative spirit. I’m working my way up the corporate ladder while balancing an insatiable need to release creativity. I am a jewelry designer and a DIY advocate. Like most accountants, I am frugal, and like most DIY advocates, I love to thrift! My sole mission is to transform any piece from booty to loot, on a budget, and show you how it’s done.
I spend my days in the big city, my nights in the suburbs, and the weekends lounging in wine country or exploring the treasures of California. I grew up in the heart of Sonoma Valley, surrounded by vineyards, cows, cheese, beautiful scenery and delicious wines.
What inspired you to start a blog?
Crunching numbers and balancing debits and credits is not much of a creative outlet. I was in search for something larger than life. One day I was searching for a headboard tutorial and accidentally stumbled across the DIY blogosphere. Call me crazy, or a very bad web surfer, but I had no idea this was here! I felt like the internet had slapped me in the face saying, “uh, hello, we have everything!” I was immediately hooked. I was blown away by people’s crafty abilities to share projects, tutorials, tips, tricks and experiences. This was also when I was first introduced to Pinterest. Mind blown. I began reading blog after blog – blogs on home design, blogs on arts and crafts, blogs on travel, blogs on rants and raves, and of course DIY blogs. I am hooked.
What will you blog about?
My blog is my creative outlet. I will share with readers the “how-to’s” and “do’s and don’ts” of specific projects, arts, and crafts. I will show my readers how easy it is to create something or add personal style and flair to an old piece of furniture or fashion accessory. I will embark on new projects and trends, share my thoughts and encourage discussions on what my readers think as well. I will give you my advice if you ask for it, and probably give it to you anyway even if you don’t. I will share the secrets of jewelry making, and teach you how to hack your favorite overpriced accessory. I will share stories about my travels and experiences in California, and I will certainly drop in images of my awesome and super fun pups!
How often will you post?
I work full time, which means my time for projects and creativity is very limited. Given my schedule at this time, my goal is 2~3 posts a week. I certainly strive to be a daily blogger, but that will take some time and perfection of my blogging skills. Please bear with me in the mean time! I also encourage you to click around and visit often!
I hope you enjoy my posts, projects, and ramblings as much as I do!
