Hi, I’m Heather. Brie Brie Blooms is not about cheese or flowers. I’m an Arizona mom to two daughters, two cats, a Siberian Husky and hedgehog. We make crafts, travel and play here where creativity blossoms. I’m a Phoenix lifestyle blogger with a love for coffee, glitter and a great road trip. Our oldest daughter is the SeaWorld guest kid blogger and her little sister is a bundle of joy happy to be along for the ride.
I grew up in a small mining town and my childhood summers were spent at a local craft store with my best friend. We beaded necklaces and painted pottery all day, every summer day. I grew up, sold all my beading and crafting supplies at a yard sale, and went off to college. With a justice studies degree and intent on changing the world of social justice, I didn’t find the time to let my creativity shine. Then almost nine years ago and laid off from work, I was a new stay at home mom and found so much joy in being mommy all day and crafting with a glue gun while our sweet baby and my husband slept all night.
Jump ahead a few years and I decided my passion really isn’t in making pretty hair clips for babies, it’s about sharing everything in our life that started with a baby.
Never one to underachieve, I became a preschool teacher where our oldest daughter attended daycare. My dreams of crafting all day with chubby little fingers had came true. Eventually this blog was thriving and I transitioned to a social marketing campaign management role. Now, back at home with our second daughter and loving every minute of it, I am still amazed by the power of my voice and this blog.
I start new projects daily and love having the opportunity to share them here. Brie Brie Blooms is definitely a family endeavor. I genuinely appreciate the support from my super duper friends and family.
Have a look around and enjoy getting to know me through my love for glitter and family fun.
