Shoeprincess1-Introduction and a little about me

Hello everyone!  My name is Brigitte and I would like to let all of you pretties know a little about myself.  I was recently contacted by Patti and Doreen and asked to join their design team and I gladly (and excitedly) said YES!

I was born and raised in NYC and now live with my husband and 3 1/2 year old daughter Gigi not far from my beloved city in New Jersey.  I have always had an obsession with paper even as a little girl when I would play with my paper dolls so it is of no surprise that slowly turned into a paper crafting hobby.  I started seriously altering and crafting about 2 years ago and never dreamed the day would come that I would post on YouTube and be recognized for my work!  I am so very grateful for this opportunity and enjoy sharing and learning all there is to learn about scrapbooking.

My style is a bit of everything I love.  I truly love Vintage and Shabby Chic but am drawn to the whimsy of color and tradition. My favorite color combinations are red, black and white; black, cream and brown; pinks and browns; and pink, cream, and greens.   Because I string jewelry, I am naturally drawn to pearls, charms and trinkets of all kinds.

When I am not creating, I enjoy running, baking,  fashion, and textile.  I love textures and fabrics and playing around with dyes and mists.  As my YT name implies, I love shoes :-)  Sometimes I will open my closet and draw inspiration from the colors and styles that are right there ready to be worn!

I am so honored to be a part of this lovely and talented team and want to send Patti and Doreen a big THANK YOU for asking me aboard!  I do not have any photos of my work as of yet because I really never thought this day would come where people would want to see or ask about my creations.  I do promise to make take strides and share new things with you all when I can!  Thanks again for all the support and thank you for taking this journey with us!

Have a happy day~  Brigitte

  7. Actually Anonymous this is not Brigitte's blog.I am the one deleting your comments not Brigitte. This blog is for our store Ooh-la-la Vintage Treasures store. Brigitte was on our store's Design Team. You are wasting your breathe commenting here because Brigitte never sees your comments. I would appreciate it if you would only leave comments about Ooh-la-la only not about Brigitte. Thank you Patti & Doreen
