I’m so glad you’re here.

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

Welcome to my Internet space for all things creative! I’m a communications professional by day and a creative, DIY-loving houseplant and gardening hobbyist by night. 

What you’ll find here—mostly DIY projects, houseplant care and propagation guides, woodworking projects, gardening tips and guides, and a few other random things.

We live in a small midcentury home, so when it comes to DIY, I trend toward projects for smaller spaces or projects that have multiple uses. I try to be intentional with my creations, so I don’t do a ton of big DIY projects. Only stuff we really need or want.

I’m also on the thriftier side of things—I love a good bargain or estate sale find. I don’t think you have to spend a lot of money to create beautiful things.

And I also love plants. 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 houseplants based on my own experience learning through trial and error. It’s all about building confidence.

What’s your back story?

I’ve gained a lot of my skills through reading, watching, and trial and error. My dad is 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🙂

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 side gig running through ads, affiliate relationships, and partnerships with brands. You can read more about all of those things on my disclosure page. It isn’t exactly a page-turner, but I like to be upfront with everyone who lands here.

What projects are you most proud of?

Here are a few links for you to get started with! They will give you a feel for my style and the type of content you’ll find here. Prepare to be dazzled!

Where can I see you and your work?

I am so lucky to have had my work featured in many different places. Here are just a few.

And here are a few interviews I’ve given and features I’ve received:

What else do you do?

In 2021, I decided to move my crafts, Cricut projects, and printables over to a new home, Let’s Craft Instead. If that’s your thing, I’d love to see you there, too!

Can I put a link in one of your posts?

No. Please don’t email me asking me to link to a guide you wrote or a post you think would be a “valuable resource for my readers.” I only link to resources I either find organically or find through friends. I’m sorry, I don’t participate in link-building schemes, especially for payment.

Do you accept guest posts?

No. I do not accept guest posts from strangers who are only looking to submit a post to get links. I only work with other small creators or small businesses I love.

How can I contact you?

If you have a question, would like to get in touch about working together, or just want to chat, you can contact me via email (b[email protected]). You can also link up with me via a DM on Instagram.

Whichever way you contact me, I’ll get back to you as soon as possible! Thanks for stopping by!

    Brittany, glad I came across your Blog. I have been dealing with gnats etc. with my house plants. I took down all you shared. I also use a concoction with Thieves, soap and few other oils. But I needed more. I just spent an entire day Webbing to buy new soil, some stones and water mats for my plants. I wouldn’t mind being on your Blog email. :). I’m an artist – Canvas, etc. and soon to publish a book…well – if I can get these gnats out of here! My art website is if you ever want to look. I’m not doing much these days – 73 and slowing down but I love painting and writing. Blessings. Donna

    • I’m so glad you found me, Donna! I took a look at your website–you are very talented. So nice to see someone doing what they love 🙂 And good luck to your on your gnat battle!!

    Hi I saw your post about the epiphyllum oxypetalum or night blooming cereus. I have 2 of them they are very beautiful plants they bloom in the summer starting around late July or August when the bloom opens it’s not as late as you said it will start opening at dark by midnight it is completely open and will start to close. They are found in desserts as well as rain forest. During the dust bowl they were known as the plant of false hope because ppl would see the bloom and think it would bring rain and the next morning it would be wilted. The book out of the dust talks about them. Just some interesting facts.

    • That’s so cool! Thank you so much for sharing. I have noticed mine opening blooms a bit earlier. I need to add that to my list of things to update on the blog 🙂

    just fyi, on your
    double “applying”

    “Since it dries so quickly, applying applying polycrylic with a small, smooth roller is a good option, especially on larger surfaces.”

    Love your blog! Would you be willing to do a post in the future about where you buy your indoor pots for plants? 🙂

    My husband made me your plant stand and it’s awesome!

    What a great site. Just found it. Really impressed. Reading it from cold and windy wonderful Wales. The sort ot weather when you need to catch up in front of the fire. Hwl!

    So I just read your post about your basement floors, and it came at such a great time!! I have been looking at vinyl flooring and we fell in love with the smartcore because it’s water proof (Lowe’s says you can submerge them in water for 2 years and it will not work) and commercial grade which is a plus!! We have kids and dogs and we “live” in our house and would love a true waterproof and scratch proof!! so do you feel your choice in flooring was the best for the basement? Do feel when it says waterproof it’s truly waterproof?

    • Hi!! Sorry it’s taken me a bit to respond! I ended up going with Home Depot Lifeproof flooring and have a couple posts about it! But, in a nutshell, we are very very happy with it. Click here to see my 1-year-later review post 🙂

    Hi! Brittany…I am sending cuttings of my plants to a good friend. And needed a description. Your description of night blooming cereus was great. I have one and really enjoy it every day. It is relatively new to me, but look forward to the night it blooms! Thank you.
