Let me introduce you to Brittany Watson Jepsen. The lovely brains behind ‘The House That Lars Built‘. I have to tell you that I absolutely love this blog. It is a soft and beautiful blog about crafting and other pretty things that offers tips on party planning, creating cool DIYs, recipes, and smatterings of a life lived in full colour. It is well written and incredibly pleasing to the eyes.
Brittany has been blogging at The House That Lars Built for the past 8 years, with only starting to take her blogging seriously within the last 3 years. She initially started the blog as a grad school project for an interior design class. Look how far she has come in such little time?!
These days, Brittany is working hard, everyday, on the blog, as well as in her shop on Etsy, which carries her cards, calendars, and other illustrations.
Brittany has also collaborated with Twig NY on a dinnerware line that is absolutely charming.
If you have a DIY/craft blog of your very own, you may be interested in the Lars ‘DIY Blogger Handbook’, available on the site for $45. It is an online class that covers everything you need to know to create your own DIY/crafty blog post and have it be seen.
Also on the blog, Brittany has affiliate listings for all of her favourite crafting supplies and some of her most memorable fashions that you can purchase through her site, which is really handy if you follow the blog and are a fan of what Brittany wears and DIYs.
House of Lars has over 102K followers on Instagram and over 2,600 brilliant images in her feed. On Pinterest, she has over 130K followers, with over 26k pins.
I highly recommend you checking out both feeds, as Brittany is also a stylist in her business life, so all images have a very professional and styled look to them.
If you are looking for a place to start on The House That Lars Built, I would suggest that you try looking through her DIY Project Archives, where you find dozens of posts just waiting for you to click and start creating!
