It’s Bonkers

Wow! I've been trying to wrap my head around writing a post for a while. How am I supposed to write when all of our lives are changing? Right now I am in our cabin bunk room writing this post from inside a small closet, my kids are working on their homework next to me on bedside tables that are now being used as desks. This is all so weird. My head actually hurts from the pressure and I feel exhausted at the end of the day from all the thinking power my brain is doing... READ MORE

I am so excited to share this post! It's been a long time and a lot of long weekends in the making. I started our cabin bathroom remodel at the end of July last summer. Our cabin is a busy place, and we needed our small bathroom to stand up to all the traffic. More than anything it needed to be efficient and functional, but also look the best! Let's take a look back at where it started... READ MORE

Early on in my bathroom remodel I realized that I wouldn't be able to include a niche for the shower as I had hoped. Two of the three walls that surround the bath and shower are exterior walls, and because it gets so cold in NW Wisco (aka Wisconsin) in the winter months it would have caused problems to inset a niche between any of the studs on the exterior wall. The third wall contained the plumbing for our shower, and I didn't want to have to open up the wall to access it or deal with the headache that would be rerouting the plumbing just so that we could have a spot to put our shampoo. Since this is our cabin bath, and because we live like wild woods people when we are here - we don't have huge need for a lot of bath time accoutrements in this space. All we really need is stuff to wash our hair from time to time. READ MORE

Being that it's the last day in January, I wanted to squeeze in a post about my plans for an upcoming organizational project. I know you have all heard of "spring cleaning" but honestly, what gets me through the middle and end of winter are indoor organizational projects. For me it helps to combat some of the SAD feelings and gives me some control - I can't control the weather, but I can make my environment work for me... READ MORE

Hey Team! I wanted to dedicate an entire blog post to just how much I love the innovation that brought me/you/us the Samsung Frame TV. If you’re not familiar with the Frame TV, it’s a TV that moonlights as framed art! Samsung designed a TV that displays digital art (when in art mode), is able to be mounted flush on a wall just like a piece of artwork would, and the frame itself can be swapped out with interchangeable magnetic frames...
