Cabin Kitchen Reveal

So stoked to share the cabin kitchen revamp (mostly on a budget) with ya, I mean it’s only been a year in the making. Talk about slow design! Of course, some of that slowness is by necessity, renovating a small cabin kitchen when you leave 120 miles away isn’t going to happen over night. When I get presented with a design problem like our kitchen cabin, my first instinct is to make the most trying to maximize design on a budget... READ MORE

in Kitchen, The Cabin
I had decided in January, that 2018 would be my year of saying "Yes" to everything. Trying new things, meeting new people, all that stuff regular confident people do. As a result, in February, my friend Ashley Goldman from The Gold Hive dared me to go to a local Twin Cities book panel event to introduce myself to Melissa Coleman (aka The Faux Martha). I begrudgingly said, “Sure” because Ashley is my Accountability Partner (™). I was terrified. Big social events where I don’t know anyone are NOT my thing... READ MORE

Cabin Bathrooms – A Plan

Hello my friends! I didn't mean for my absence to be so long, but the summer just got away from me! Things have finally started to settle down and we are having some chill time. Chill time for me usually comes with some sort of project, because I like projects and they make me feel good. I call it chill time because I can have a glass of champ while I do it and I don't have to drive kids anywhere. We're spending the next few weeks off and on at the cabin.

That being said, there are lots of little projects that need to be done at the cabin... READ MORE

Comfort Works Soderhamn Slipcovers Review

I began looking for replacement slipcovers around the new year. I did lots of research, and after ordering some samples, I decided that Comfort Works as the brand that had what I needed. A huge reason I choose Comofort Works instead of other slip cover manufacturers is because of the durability of the fabric used. In doing my research I found this youtube vid, and I was so impressed by how the fabric repels liquids. As soon as I got my fabric samples I started dumping coffee and cocktails all over them to see how they held up. I was so incredibly stoked to see how well they did. I was actually using the samples as a party trick, impressing well imbibed cabin guests with “magic”, showing them how well the samples repelled stains... READ MORE

My May Garden

Friendthrens. I tell ya, the only downside to having a cabin is not being able to give respect due to the gardens. They are thriving this year, but they are in desp need of some cleaning up. I have to actually schedule time in my calendar to hang out with them. I wouldn't change a thing, but I do miss toiling over them, and I hope I still get a chance to this summer... READ MORE
