Skaie has appeared as an on-camera, DIY expert for HomeAdvisor’s Home Hacks video seriesas well as a DIY Expert on Hallmark Chanel’s Home & Family show.

Her approach to her designs and projects is rooted in the farm-life influence and tutelage of her Minnesota-raised mom, Lois – born in 1930 on a homesteaded dairy farm, with no running water, electricity, or indoor facilities. From an early age, Skaie was taught these gardening, cooking, sewing, refurbishing, building and home-improvement skills which she now passes on to her readers and subscribers.

Additionally, Skaie is a signed and published singer/songwriter (Fervor Records/ASCAP) and kid’s book author (Big Bug Lunch!, ASCAP/Splashing Mermaid Books & Music).
