I’m so glad you’re here.

Hi there! I’m Brittany. This is my blog.

I’m Brittany Goldwyn Merth, the human at the helm of by Brittany Goldwyn, my Internet space for all things creative. I’m married to a cool dude, and together we have three dependents: one toddler and two cats (one toothless, one kind of an asshole, both extremely loved). I work in an office during the day and live in a cool little town in Maryland (USA) called Frederick.

What will I find here?

This is primarily a modern DIY blog focusing on ideas for the home, basic woodworking projects, crafts, and more. And planters. Lots and lots of DIY planters. We also live in a townhouse (see the tour here), so I trend toward projects for smaller spaces or projects that have multiple uses.

I love plants and share a lot of plant care and gardening tips on here as well. I often hear people talk about how they can’t keep plants alive, but it’s not that hard! I love to fill my home with plants and share articles about easy-to-care-for houseplants based on my own experience learning through trial and error. I also love cats, so you’ll see a lot of our two little furries Henry and Blanche. I love doing cat-related DIYs.

Although I have a toddler, this is not a mommy blog. I will not give you excruciatingly detailed reports of her daily schedule and development. However, I do share lots of fun kid-related DIYs I make for her! She’s pretty awesome and really cute.

What’s your back story?

I’ve gained a lot of my skills through reading, watching, and trial and error. My dad is also a licensed general contractor and is extremely talented, so I’ve learned a lot from him over the years. I have been blogging here since 2015 and love sharing my projects to inspire others. It has morphed from a really poorly put together blog to a semi-professional space on the Internet. 🙂

When people hear about my blog, they usually think it’s like an Etsy store and ask me what I sell. I tell them I don’t sell products, I sell ideas…except you don’t have to pay to read my posts! I make money to keep this little side gig up and running through running ads, affiliate relationships, and partnerships with brands. You can read more about all of those things on my privacy policy page, which gives you the heads up about the boring stuff you’ll encounter on my posts.

What else do you do?

I also sell my photography on Creative Market, my SVG files and printables on Etsy, and a select few t-shirt designs on Amazon Merch! Because I hate sitting still. 🙂
