Say Hello to Our April Member Spotlight!


Lisa Strawn



Hello everyone, my name is Lisa. I moved to the United States in 2014 and left my family, friends and old life in Germany behind me, to marry the love of my life. As a proud military spouse I was alone quite often and to find a new hobby, I started getting into woodworking and crafting. This quickly received my full attention and I learned and taught myself so much over these years, that I decided in 2020 to turn my hobby into my dream job. Moving so often comes with the difficulty of turning a house into a home and to make it feel cozy.

With my love for DIY and home decor, I was honored to create many unique pieces for my customers and seeing the joy in their eyes every time they receive a handcrafted product from me is the answer to why I’m enjoying my business so much. Craft Cabin Designs LLC offers handmade, wooden signs and decor, but we also offer printed apparel, mugs, stickers and so much more. My journey has just begun but if you would like to follow me and support me, I would love to create a unique, custom piece for you!
