My name is Brittany. I was born and raised in the little town of Lowell, Michigan, but I currently reside in beautiful Northeastern Pennsylvania with my handsome fiance, Brad. I love arts, crafts, sewing, and design, and I'm always looking for something new to dabble in. I love to find that “little something” around the house that needs a pick-me-up and DIY the hell out of it using whatever materials I have on hand.
I first started blogging in 2011 to chronicle my experiences starting my own creative business. Now, Brittanibus has become a space devoted to sharing the creations of the everyday artisan and inspiring and maintaining a creative and positive lifestyle through crafts, fashion, beauty, decor, & design.
Here are just a few of my favorite posts from the blog!

My Engagement Story
My creativity has definitely stemmed from my amazingly-inspiring family. As I was growing up, my parents were always making things. My dad had big dreams to open his own handmade business called Black Fox, in which he sold Native-American-inspired peace pipes, clothing, and accessories, and it seemed like there was always someone creating something new in front of me. I learned about beading and wood-burning from my parents, and my grandma taught me to cross-stitch when I was still very young. In early 2000, my father passed away as the result of a heart attack. Although he was only 38 years old at the time, he had just managed to start his creative business in his own back yard, taking product photos of my brothers and I wearing his handmade headdresses, and teaching us how to make a living making. My business is an homage to him and to all of my family members that have inspired me throughout the years.
