Welcome to Young and Crafty Sisters!
We are sisters who both love to craft, shop, and drink wine. Hannah is the oldest by 17 months. Brittany is the tallest by two inches (although you can't tell by the pictures above). We are more than just sisters, we are best friends. And that's why we decided to blog together!
I started the blog Young and Crafty on a whim. It's grown over the years in ways that I could have never imagined. I always tried to rope my sister into writing up blog posts for me when she made something. She has had several guest posts here on the blog. She was talking to me about how she was thinking about starting a blog. I asked her how she felt about changing Young and Crafty to Young and Crafty Sisters. She liked the idea and we went for it! I'm so excited that she joined me on this fun journey. I can't wait for y'all to see what she has up her sleeve!
I love all things DIY. I have enjoyed making things and finding things on the cheap at garage sales, Goodwill and Craigslist. I have no clue what I'm doing but I am enjoying ever minute of it! With the successes of my "projects" also comes failures and I'm OK with that.
On a more personal note, my life is insanely busy right now! I am working full time as a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology. I graduated with my Specialist in School Psychology in May of 2014. Working with kids is my passion. I love to see kids grow and change in ways that they never imagined. Besides being busy with work, I spend many weekends with my boyfriend and traveling. After my Brittany and I went to Europe, my love for traveling has increased dramatically. I've already got some fun trips scheduled this year!
HI!!! I am Brittany and am so excited to blog with my sister Hannah on Young and Crafty!! I am 17 months younger than Hannah and we have been best friends for a long time, with the exception of those awkward middle school years . I think we both get our crafty spirit from our mom who always had some type of project in the works at the dining table. .
I currently live in Texas with my fiance Brent. I work as a Pediatric Dietitian at Texas Children's Dietitian; it is my dream job. I LOVE working with kids and am passionate about food and cooking. I am a proud member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie class of 2011, WHOOP! I am a little obsessive with all things Aggie, maroon, and Texas A&M, which I am sure you will come to learn through various projects and posts.
Many projects I will be posting will be for our home in Conroe. Brent proposed in April 2014 and our wedding is coming quickly in April 2015. I am up to my eyeballs planning our special day and Brent works out of town often. We met in 2007 when I was a freshmen at A&M and didn't start dating until 2012. He is the love of my life and he supports all my crafting; in fact he actually requests that anything on the walls be something I paint or craft.
I have grown up going to garage sales with my mom, grandma, and sister and still enjoy bargain hunting. Brent and I love going to estate sales as we decorate our home on a budget. I am sure many projects will be before & after photos from “treasures” I have discovered and refurbished/re-purposed.
Blogging is overwhelming and exciting all at the same time. Hannah has taught me so much already with her 4 years of experience and I couldn't choose a better person to blog with!
