Creating a Happy, Colorful, Handmade Home & life on the shores of lake superior

Work With Me

Thanks for your interest in working with Dans le Lakehouse!  Please reach out by email ( to receive my media packet and chat about sponsorship opportunities and creative collaborations.  While I'm open to sidebar advertising, hosting giveaways, and other collaborations, here's what I'm most excited about:


Does your website or brand need beautiful, original DIY projects?  Want your products styled and photographed in a fun, fresh way?  Check out my DIY projects page and lakehouse tour for a taste of what I can create.  Here are a few examples of my paid work:

Canadian Tire Christmas Projects + Videos

I collaborated with Canadian Tire to style and showcase the CANVAS line of holiday decor.  I created, styled, and photographed original DIY projects for the Canadian Tire website, many of which featured CANVAS products.  A film crew was then sent to my lakehouse to film a series of videos pertaining to these projects.   My projects, photographs, and styling were only on the website during the 2014 holiday season, but you can still see my blog posts featuring the content by clicking here.

Canadian Tire Outdoor Oasis + Videos

I was invited to create a themed tablescape to help promote the CANVAS summer collection.  I created two DIY projects for my "Outdoor Oasis," and was flown to a studio where my styled table and DIY projects were professionally photographed.  Additionally, I filmed a series of videos.  You can read all of the details in this series of posts.

Leon's Hello Holiday

I was invited to contribute DIY content for the launch of Leon's Furniture's holiday themed digital magazine, Hello Holiday.  I created, styled, and photographed four holiday-themed DIY projects.  You can see these projects, and all of the details, by clicking here.


Need a well researched article for your website or magazine?  With a PhD under my belt, I've logged a lot of hours in dusty libraries, researching and writing.  Let me do the heavy lifting for you and produce an article that will engage and interest your readers.  I've written for e-How, Ottawa at Home Magazine, Leon's Hello Yellow Blog, La-Z-Boy's The Comfortable House and more!

The lakehouse has tons of potential, but it's still a work in progress.  Let's work together to update a room or create an awesome project, while showcasing your amazing product or brand.  I'm open to product reviews, big and small, but it has to be a product I would have purchased.  Email me to see if we're a good fit!
