I’ve always enjoyed making things with my hands. In elementary school, it was various crafts and kits that family members purchased for me. In middle school, it was latch hook and sewing. In high school, it was ceramics. And in college, I finally found my forever passion: crochet. It started as a way for this poor college girl to make herself all the scarves and beanies she wanted to buy but couldn’t afford, and has quickly turned into an obsession.
I’m now the friend who sits quietly making a baby blanket in the dim of the bathroom light as everyone else in the bachelorette party sleeps in. I’m the woman on the airplane who completes a set of mittens, start to finish, on a quick flight to Portland. And I’m the family member who always gives something handmade as Christmas gifts. My name is Brittany and I’m a crochet-aholic. The first step is admitting it, right?
Even though my love is crochet, I also enjoy making in general! I have dabbled in painting, I’m pretty good on my sewing machine, and I’m trying to get better at knitting. With all these projects, I needed somewhere to document what I work on, which is when DIY Daydreams was born! Come with me on a journey of endless making and inspiration!
Through my creative journey, I’m constantly reminded of the One that put this creative drive in me. So occasionally I also like to babble about my faith journey, what the Lord is teaching me, and reflect back on how much I’ve grown.
So come and follow me, my making escapades, and my personal revelations! I hope you find something that inspires you here!
