This is me.

Hi. I don't think we've been properly introduced. See I'm Brittny - Britt for short. I go by Britt because, well, nobody ever spells the whole thing right. I always get asked if my name is spelled correctly, even after I've just written it myself. So Britt works.

Anyway. I started making these quick little videos for NoelMignon.com's kit club when I was accepted to the DT at the beginning of this month. And I'm liking it. So I've decided to start sharing them here with you.

And this is me. It's so weird to see a video of someone when you've only seen stills of them before. And let's face it, the photos I post of myself are the best ones I can get. The videos however are complete with double chins, wiry flyaway hair, and sometimes even a little too much cleavage. If you know me you know that sometimes I just can't keep the girls in line. I try. I really do. But sometimes there is still a severe case of inappropriocity.

Blanket appology.

So here's the damn video already. Hope you like it. Let me know if there's anything you want to learn how to do - maybe I'll make a video out of it!

Dream Land

Gotta have this!!!



Seriously. How cute is that with the drawers and the scallops and the little photo spots. Love it! So precious!

So I searched bedroom vanity and found this site and I am in love! Seriously, doesn't get much better than this for me at this particular moment!

Can I just say that I have always had an obsession with vanities and the whole atmosphere around them? Ever since I was a little girl. Yup, just can't help it. When we moved into the rental house I got a hand-me-down bedroom set from my Great Grandma Doris and was so stoked when I realized that it came with its very own vanity and teeny tiny bench. And I thought, "Well, this is perfect!!" I had this vision in my head of how it would turn out and I immediately started sanding off the layers and layers of white and green paint so that I could restore it to its original glory. Problem with original glory is that it is totally protected under said layers and layers of paint. And these arthritic hands can only work a sander for so long before they revolt.

So when I decided that I just had to have a set of two twin antique iron swirly headboards for the second guest bedroom slash maybe for my two twin girls that I'm sure to have (Emma & Abby) ((Perfect names, dontcha think?)) I decided that I would just suck it up and buy a vanity to go with them. A vanity with no sanding required. Obviously.

So click the links above and spend some time in dream land with me! It's fun here. I think I might stay a while.

Cheese is just so darned handy.

Recently, Fresno (where my mom lives) got a Fresh and Easy. Great place. Cheap cheese.

One of our favorite things is a good 'ol fashioned bake round of brie with roasted fruits and now that Mom's discovered the cheap cheese store, we've got a few little brie houses laying around. And we can't have that. No, we must use any and all containers for something crafty. Especially if you can put a mini album in it.



And with this little cheese house, you can definitely make a mini.
I used Stampendous stamps to make those flowers, which was something a little new to me, but so much fun!



LOVE Cosmo's Ready Set Chip letters, and how perfect do those Creative Impressions smooth bling work with the Delovely collection?



I managed to sneak in a bit of Material Girl in there - love my crafty times!!



Just can't live without foam dots. These little Mark Richards gems are pretty awesome, too. They're not rhinestones or pearls. They're like little dew drops - so cute and they come in different sizes.



Smooch Spritz - I'm learning...



Love the Tiny Type Cosmo's making now!



I wish I could make my handwriting a little more like Ali Edwards, but oh well!



Doilies are fun to play with.



I like asymmetry. But not everyone does. Does it bug you?



The End.
