Hi, I’m Kim!
Welcome to my Cottage in the Mitten! I love DIY, home decor, a pretty table setting, community with others, hot tea, and sewing. I make blankets for a cause, hoping to help find a cure for brain tumors. You can read more about the cause below.
I’m a mom to three grown sons, two beautiful DIL’s, Mimi to three precious granddaughters and wife to Big Al.
I’m so glad you are here! I hope you love my site and pray it inspires you.
In December of 2011, our middle son was diagnosed with a benign meningioma brain tumor. He was only 16.
Two months later, a dear friend of ours was also diagnosed with the same tumor.
Each year, along with family and friends we race for the cure.
I started this blog to sell my blankets, donating a portion to find a cure for this horrible diagnosis. I never knew what a blessing this blog would be, selling my blankets all across the United States.
You will often see “8:28” tagged with my Cottage in the Mitten brand. It refers to the scripture in Romans. Although this has been a hard journey, it has been filled with many blessings. God uses all things!
Romans 8:28 – And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
