I thought it would be cool to profile people with interesting lives, hobbies, careers. We recently spent a day out in Newport with Chauncey Tanton, a Native Newporter, former professional snowboarder, and now the Finance Manager for newportFILM.

DIY Art Sticker Door.

sZLZY

Everything about that title sounds like a lie. It's not really "ART" and it's not really a "DIY" either. Pretty basic shit! But, if you have kids under 10, chances are they put stickers EVERYWHERE. You find them stuck to windows, glass, doors, the floor. It's like an infestation. Amarite? We had princess stickers from when Cookie was ONE stuck to her closet door. That's 5 years ago.

Have you ever been on a factory tour? I'm really racking my brain here trying to think of other time that I have - maybe with school? or Grandma as a kid? I can't recall! Last week, I was treated to a 2 day trip to Kohler, Wisconsin with a group of other bloggers. When I was initially invited, I said yes, because A, Kohler is a great brand, and B, I love traveling in America, and when else am I … [Read more...]
