Brigitta Kral's Profile

About

I am Brigitta, Briggy, Brig, BK, Big B (despite the fact that I'll never reach 5'1" without a little help from some 1/2-inch heels) and Mama B. I originally opened BrigaBauble on Etsy in hopes of selling my handmade jewelry to feed my bead-buying obsession. Since then, I have expanded BrigaBauble to include... comic-book decoupaged housewares, jewelry, cufflinks, and tie pins with a serious DC Comics(TM) Justice League(TM) obsession...decoupaged shoes that feature everything from comic book images to outdated European currency to a vintage map of Europe...polymer clay creations that include decorative drinkware, mirrors, and seriously silly jewelry...and so much more.

Every time I get a sale, I'm thrilled and do a little dance of joy. I hope this feeling never goes away.

A couple of years ago I expanded into natural bath and body goodies and seriously silly novelty soaps for kids of all ages. I went on to create a sister Etsy shop for these fragrant and indulgent creations: www.BriggysBathAndBody.etsy.com

I am a teller of stories--stories from my life or the lives of others. My stories are grounded in fact and layered with hyperbole. I'm a sarcastic pessimist who loves to laugh and craft.

By day I teach English to 10th and 12th grade public high school students whose stories and, sometimes, behavior, break my heart, make me laugh, and remind me or make me wonder why I love teaching.

The city that feels most like home to me is Vienna, Austria. (There are no kangaroos there.) The only other city that feels a bit like home, and that I can comfortably navigate (or at least could three years ago) is Prague, Czech Republic, where I lived and taught English to adults for two years. I enjoy visiting plenty of American cities as well--in case you're curious :)

I was almost run over by a school bus in kindergarten. I talk frequently and openly to my two cats, and dream of one day adding a dog to the mix. I live about three or four miles away from my sister, brother-in-law and the two most fabulous, creative, hilarious and loving kids in the world: my nephews Matteus (15), and Tobias (9).

I'm a proud member of a number of Etsy teams including CREST Artisans, the Recycle Party Team, Etsy International Team, Northern Virginia Craftaholics...
