Meet Wholly Britt

Welcome to Wholly Britt! This is the “meet Wholly Britt” page, but in reality, I’m thrilled to meet you! So glad you’re here and eager for you to get to know me better.

Hello, I’m Britt Thelemann Pangerl! I’m a Wife, Dog-Mom,  Custom Gift Creator, Model, On-Camera & Live Event Host, and new Blogger. But, you may know me from a couple of my most noteworthy past titles. These include Miss Minnesota USA 2011 and professional NBA dancer for the Minnesota Timberwolves! Although my legal name is “Brittany” in 5th grade I decided on a change. I actually went so far as to print and hand out business cards stating, “Just call me Britt.” So, please skip the formality and indulge me.

On a more serious note, at the beginning of 2018 my life changed. I finally received the answer to my very private struggle with extreme pelvic pain. Endometriosis. This answer came with a flood of emotions, thoughts and questions

I love to shop, try new things, and DIY as-much-as possible. Bonus for you, I also LOVE to share my ideas, hacks, and findings with friends. As a result, Wholly Britt, the website, blog, and shop were born. I tend to geek-out on almost anything technology related and love exploring how new technologies can improve our lives. Consequently, my streamlined, tech-centered point of view influences my approach to all things blogging, business, cooking, shopping, lifestyle, crafting, and interior design (aka. everything). While, I may be a tech-forward millennial, my personal and design styles are still classic, structured and more simple than trendy.




My techy brain is used by-day as a Business Systems Administrator (aka. IT dept) at Gamer Packaging where I explore business technology trends and provide application support in our downtown Minneapolis, MN corporate office.

Outside the Office

When I’m not at my “grown-up job” I work as an event host for Twin Cities Road Crew, formerly Radio Disney, freelance as a fashion show commentator, raise funds for nonprofits as a LIVE auctioneer,  make homemade crafts to sell using my Silhouette Cameo and model plus-size and standard fashions.

My Inspiration & Life

On April 11th, 2016 the love-of-my-life, Jon Pangerl, proposed and proceeded to surprise me with an INSTANT engagement party. A mere 7-months later we were married in Minneapolis, Minn. on October 22nd, 2016. My homemade gift business was born from my tight timeline, DIY curiosity and budget-savvy nature as a bride. I created all of my own table numbers, wedding signs, bridal party gifts etc. and have used my personal trials and errors to create custom gifts for others that are thoughtful, yet budget-friendly. In February of 2017, we ditched our plans for a 3-week European Honeymoon adventure and closed on our first house in my hometown of Plymouth, Minn. We quickly embarked on a master bedroom and bathroom remodel where I FINALLY got to flex my HGTV-obsessed muscles. Don’t worry, we were able to snag a KILLER deal and honeymooned that April in Hawaii. Hence, my writing and the Amazon recommendations in my shop all come from real-life situations, curiosities and obsessions.

Amazon Prime Anyone?

While you can shop my handcrafted gifts and custom creation, I’m thrilled to also showcase products I’ve tried (they will say “Wholly Britt Approved”) or find interesting through my partnership with Amazon. Without leaving you can explore “my favorite things” or “featured products” and add them directly to your shopping cart! Then, when you’ve loaded up, my shop directs you right over to everyone’s favorite one-stop-shop so you can take advantage of your Prime membership and use their secure payment system. Most of all, the prices, photos, reviews and info on each product listed here is updated by Amazon, so you KNOW you’re getting the web’s best offers. For more information on my Amazon partnership and affiliate or sponsored links throughout my blog, navigate from the meet Wholly Britt page over to the disclosure policy page.
