This former software engineer for Google and Apple parlays her love of crafting into Brit + Co., an online platform that delivers simple how-tos for women who long to create by hand. Morin also offers items for sale on her website, including a spin on permanent botanicals—flowers she fabricates with the help of a 3-D printer. “They make it possible to share a cutting-edge technology with everyone,” she says, as she offers up a rose. “It’s amazing that a printer can create something so delicate and beautiful.”
To see Brit in action, attend her annual Re:Make Festival in San Francisco, California, where attendees are invited to shop handmade goods and learn how to make several easy DIY projects for free.
Brit also wrote a book filled with unique ideas and step-by-step DIY projects for the modern homemaker in Homemakers: A Domestic Handbook for the Digital Generation (William Morrow Paperbacks, 2015).
