Got a jug of bleach and a desire to creatively destroy everything you own? LET'S CRAFT!  I started to feel minimally bad that we haven't really done much this summer, but to be fair, I did just teach three kids a whole ass trimester of school, so I feel like we all just needed to [...]

I went to a conference in Palm Springs a few years ago, and each attendee was gifted a surprise package from a woman they hired who called herself The Wantist.  This woman, unbeknownst to each of us, had scoured our social media platforms, and photo albums, and purchased us each a personal gift.  I walked [...]

DIY Marquee Camp Letters

Nothing adds a bit of pizzazz like some flashy marquee letters. Unfortunately, while Etsy offers oodles of them, they are largely out of my price range, and by my price range, I mean the amount Andy will confidently agree that I should spend on light up letters for a 4 day event. Commence project DIY. I [...]

MUST HAVE: DIY Vintage Hoodie

I don't know about you, but I hate to have things all up on my neck. On top of that, I have a large chest, so high necklines- on top of choking me- are really unflattering. Plus I like my sweatshirts with cleavage. I'll own that. So, I have come up with a solution to [...]

Remember the television console that almost killed me? Thanks to copious amounts of help from Andy and my mom, I was able to finish it, but out of principal, I gave it the silent treatment the whole entire time. It actually wasn't the only thing I purchased that day. I also left with a headboard [...]

Where have I been? Oh you know, making furniture. Like Jesus. So, as you may remember, I've been a bit of a garage sale whore lately, hunting down some great wood pieces to refinish and introduce into my home in a way that says, hi, I'm super eclectic and artsy. Like if Zoe Dechanel and [...]

I feel like my personalities change with the seasons. Like, in the spring, Andy knows it's time for Self-Reflective Brittany who wants to do things like try out a new religion or host an exchange student. I'm pretty sure Jesus was reborn during this time, so I'm like, let's start meditating and opening our home [...]
