Cabin fever fighters

February is cabin fever time, so if you’re feeling the winter doldrums, here are some cool things my friends have been up to lately that I thought were pretty awesome and asked to share:

Brad of Argo Adventures and Blur Mediaworks posted photos of a recent silo ice climbing trip that he took in Eastern Iowa. How cool does this look?

I’ve gone “rock” climbing inside of a silo before, but I’ve never seen this type of thing. Brad said he went to the Cedar Falls farm mentioned in this article to try it out. Would you be scared?

Ice climbing isn’t in my immediate future, but soon something like this adorable cardboard Dutch rowhouse project my friend Siobhan posted might be. Her family is ridiculously creative (find them at Balen Blanken) and ever-so-sweet! They were inspired by these darling little play houses on A Beautiful Mess and got crafty. Personally, I think they outdid the original. Voila:

Siobhan is mom to little Frances here and was thoughtful enough to gift me a few parenting books and a cuddle suit for our baby when I saw her at the YNPN Launch last month. I love knowing there are creative moms in our community who I can reach out to for guidance and support. Her husband, Jonathan, is also extremely talented and will be in the StageWest production Good People that opens this Friday.

Continuing on the topic of creativity, Marissa just launched The Moon & The Honey, a lovely Iowa-focused weddings/home/kiddo blog that I’m sure will be gorgeous. She’s seeking submissions of engagement/space shoots and the like, if you know anyone!
