Welcome to Big Box Detox
My name is Kristen and I like to make things. I do a little bit of everything and I am an expert at nothing. On Big Box Detox you will find a variety of projects including sewing and knitting, easy art projects, baking and cooking as well as home improvement.
Making things gives me purpose and I hope my projects will inspire you to get creative and try something new.
My Five Fave Posts
If you are new to Big Box Detox, check out some of my favourite posts!
I am married to a wonderful man named Eric. We met in the autumn of 2003 and have been together ever since.
Eric and I were married in Canmore, Alberta on top of a mountain on May 30th, 2009. It was a sunny and blustery spring day that we shared our closest friends and family.
I am 30 years old and I have a BA in Art History and an MLIS (Master of Library and Information Studies). Yes, you need a Master’s degree to be a REAL Librarian.
Eric always sees the good in everyone and is more patient than anyone else I know. He’s kind of a smarty pants and completed his PhD in May of 2013. It was a long process and I am so excited to have my husband back.
In September of 2013 I found out I was pregnant. Our sweet baby boy Luca Ole Niven was born on April 12th, 2014. We was born 5 weeks early and spent 12 days in the NICU. Today he is a healthy and happy little guy!
Eric and I live in snowy Calgary, Alberta in a cute 1912 home. If you check out my house tour, you will see the house needs lots of work. The best thing about living in Calgary is being so close to the Rocky Mountains.
