Jamie Lee--Out Standing in Her Field!
The News at Many Kites . . .
Hi and welcome. Nearly seven years ago Milt, my husband, and I (Jamie) bought into some old family land just outside of Cass Lake, MN. Our goal was to build a small straw bale cabin just to have the fun in the summer and to experience building our own place. We didn't realize at the time that we would totally fall in love with our little house and never want to leave. Since then, we've added a bedroom/bath, a separate studio and this past summer, a new pump house.
We've also begun to invite other "builders and makers" to come and play with us. Together we are kind of crazy creative. I'm a writer, Milt's a film and radio producer and then we are builders. I also teach personal development strategies and have begun offering my Life by Design retreat right here in our house. There is a lot going on so please come into our playground and wander around a bit.
This winter I've been having some fun learning to draw on my drawing pad. Check out my playful snowmen to the left.
