Meet the Crafting Momma

Just to be clear, I am horrible about talking about myself. Now that I’ve told you one secret (you can’t tell anyone!), it’s time to lay out a few more…

 

I work full time for a fantastic company and absolutely love the people I work with. My evenings and weekends are spent cooking, cleaning, playing with my baby, attempting to train for various Corporate Challenge sporting events, making things for my little lady, doing research for projects and executing those various crafting projects. Oh, and I run a jewelry business called Brie’Denee, but I put that on hold in October 2014 just before I gave birth.

This is me, Brittney.

(It was 2013 but I haven’t changed much. I just don’t have a good recent head shot.)

These women are my inspiration and my best friends.

This is my husband. He NEVER gives me a strait face for pictures. He’s my rock.

We also have a lot of fun!

This little lady is the light of my life. She joined our family January 1, 2015.

These are some of the projects I’ve done over the years: Jewelry, painting, sewing, to show a few…

We are always on the go but I have a goal to post on Mondays and Thursdays. I’ll post about anything and everything. From thoughts, feelings, and research on being a new momma, to crafts I’m working on and to projects around the house and yard. I’m not limiting myself to certain topics because I don’t limit what I do, research, feel or think in my life. I believe in living life as full as possible and being with the people I love as much as possible.

Visit back! I’d love to share my journey through life with you. I promise, if I make a mistake, I’ll do an “Uh Oh” post. If you’re wondering where the “Uh Oh” came from, my daughter says it about a thousand times a day when we drop ANYTHING or if she throws something. It’s super cute and fits perfectly.

Internet, Here I Come

Hello all! I’m Brittney and I’m writing my first post for this blog. I hope you enjoy it and come back for more. I love making things and being with my family so that is mostly what you’ll see here. Since my life is hectic with a dash of crazy, I invite you to come with me on my journey as a new momma, full time worker, and (eh hum) homely wife.

I’ve been delving into sewing this last year. Normally, I make jewelry but I put that on hold just before I birthed my baby. It’s been a pretty fun adventure learning a new medium and making things for my little lady.

This is just a taste of what you’ll see here.

I made this Mei Tai carrier last weekend for my sitter. I’ll delve more into the steps and materials I used later (not a full tutorial since there are a few GREAT ones out there).

 Over the next few weeks, I plan to make 2 more! Here are the fabric’s I’ll be using.

 And of course, I can’t make anything without my helper. She is such a little doll! If you’re wondering where the name for my blog came from, you should thank this little beauty. She says “uh oh” a zillion times a day. Especially if something falls.

She makes a perfect fabric weight.

Just look at that face!

Already great at measuring.
