Welcome to The Happy Camp! I’m so glad you stopped by. My name is Kylie. I’m a Nebraska native, born and raised on a dairy farm in the small town of Pleasant Dale, Nebraska . I married my husband, J.R., in May 2016. We, along with our brittany spaniel named Happy Camper (although he prefers to go by Camp) share a beautiful little home in Kansas City.

A few things I love:

Traveling – especially to the beach

Scouring thrift stores and estate sales – I have a room dedicated solely for the stray furniture I bring home

Reading/listening to anything from suspense to memoirs to finance books

Hanging out with Camp – he loves car rides

Reading other blogs – send me a note if you have one!

French Fries – enough said.

All of the TV – I’ll admit it, we are Survivor Super Fans

Orcas, I’m obsessed – the biggest sigh can be heard around the world from JR when anyone asks me if I’ve seen Blackfish.



Did I mention we are obsessed with our dog, Camp? His name was the inspiration for the blog! As major DIY junkies we use this space to share our home renovation adventures. At The Happy Camp you will be sure to find fun DIY’s, our home renovations, design plans, and some fun stories along the way.

To follow along be sure to like our Facebook page here so you won’t miss a post!

Have an idea but not sure how to execute it? We do anything from woodworking, graphic design, home decor, screen printing, events, and more! Send us a note at happycamperdesignco@gmail.com – we would love to collaborate!
