Hello everyone, my name is Brianna. I’m beyond ecstatic to be joining the Spectrum Noir Design Team! I am 27 years of age and have been crafting for as long as I can remember. I started my crafty blog in 2012 and have had such a blast creating and getting to know new people and making lots of crafty friends. I first started using Spectrum Noirs in 2013 and fell in love with them instantly. I would describe my style as fun, bright, and whimsical. I enjoy all types of paper crafts, my favorite is of course card making and then I would have to say home décor. I also enjoy, crocheting, sewing and beading. I am lucky enough to have a supportive husband to whom I have been married to for 5 wonderful years. We live in a small town in northern Minnesota. We have one wonderful little boy, Jayden, who will be turning four this summer and we have another little bundle of joy who will be joining our family this August.”
