Hi, I’m Kim!
Welcome to my Cottage in the Mitten! I am a native Michigander. I am a wife, mom and mimi. I love DIY, home decor, all things pretty, community with others, and sewing. I make blankets for a cause, hoping to help find a cure for brain tumors. 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.
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.
