Speaking and other Announcements

Time to give y’all an update on some cool stuff going on over in PrettyHandyVille. (I just watched the Lorax today with my son, so Thneedville is still on the brain.)

April is going to be a busy month for me. First, I will be speaking at the Southern Ideal Home Show – Raleigh, NC – April 13th – 15th!

If you are in the area that weekend, I’ll be presenting all three days at the show. Look for the Habitat ReStore booth to find me. The show will be at the Fairgrounds on Blue Ridge Rd. and Hillsborough. It is always a really fun show to attend if you are looking for home improvement ideas.

I have a truck arriving at my house to pick up several of my DIY furniture projects to the share with you. I hope you will come to hear me talk about frugal decorating and how you too can Do It Yourself!

The week after the home show I’m headed to Utah to speak at the SNAP Conference. If you want to be empowered to try power tools, come hear my talk about Chic Friendly Power Tools on Saturday, April 21st (conference tickets required). If you are attending SNAP I hope to meet you there!

Karen Deer from the St. Louis Dispatch interviewed me last month for a feature she was writing on repurposed closet transformations. I think it is wonderful that so many people are utilizing their closets and reclaiming some of that square footage for living, working and play spaces! Do you have a closet that you could reclaim?

See you tomorrow for a fun Springtime and Easter craft!




  1. Wow, you ARE busy, girl! Congrats on all the speaking engagements!

  2. That’s wonderful you are going to be speaking. How lucky those people are who live close enough to attend. If I was retired already (and rich enough to travel) I’d be a… oh you know, those stalkers who follow the bands around…. brain freeze this early in the morning and I can’t think of the word… Any chance they’ll record them and post on YouTube?

    Hi, Brittany, I was reading my local paper, The St. Louis Post Dispatch, yesterday and noticed that they featured one of “my” bloggers in an article – YOU! Congrats! Keep up the good work!

    • Hi Barbara! Thanks for your comment. I asked Karen Deer to send me a copy. I’ll have to email her to remind me. It was funny because I talked to her for about 30 minutes and all she used was one sentence. ;-D I guess all my info can be truncated. I am fairly talkative in person. LOL.

    Congratulations on your speaking engagements and the interview. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer person!

  6. Wow Brittany, you are in quite the demand! Congratulations on your speaking engagement and interview! I wish I lived closer so I could attend. I would be the one hanging on your every word and taking notes furiously :)

    Have a lovely week!

  7. Sounds like a busy month! I am also speaking at SNAP! so I hope to meet you there! Love your one-woman quest to help the rest of us let go of our fear of power tools!

  8. Pretty… Busy … Girl. On the engagements >> “Break a Leg”! On the Dispatch inclusion >> “You go girl.”! Thanks for sharing Brittany — super week. ~jb
