About MilkmansGarage

On Etsy since 2016

How It All Began:

​Once upon a time, I purchased a Living Well Planner®.  Ever since, I bring my planner with me to all my appointments.  I quickly found I needed more pocket space for papers as well as a way to carry color-coded pens. I also wanted to be able to keep my planner closed so the pages didn’t continue to get bent, and I needed to easily locate pages with bookmarks. (Okay, so I am a bit of a perfectionist. Everything has to be just so, and in its place, and those bent pages really bothered me – sigh.)  After fussing over all this for a bit I decided something had to be done - and the Living Well Planner® cover prototype was born. My husband, Joe, thought the design was so amazing and it had to be shared. The prototype was perfected and high-quality materials were introduced to my design.  After a short time, I added the Classic Happy Planner® cover to my inventory to fulfill additional customer requests.  I then added Zipper Charms to the inventory because, well, how much fun are they?!  I am always eager to hear from current or future customers, so be sure to send me a message and let me know what you want to see!

MEET THE SHOP OWNERS:

CHRISSY KIHM
​My Etsy shop gives me purpose. The popular quote, “When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade,” is the motto for my life.  Lucky for me, I really like lemonade!  Without going into details, I am a survivor, but my health simply no longer allows for the rigidity of Corporate America.  Thankfully, I was born crafty.  Making planner covers when I am able gives me something to look forward to between doctor appointments. I love making custom covers using the fabric customers select, designing new cover patterns, and reading customer reviews.  I am the mastermind behind all the Planner Cover designs, picking fabrics, sewing, and managing Social Media, Blog, and Etsy accounts.

JOE KIHM
​Co-owner of Milkman’s Garage, Joe established our Etsy Shop in conjunction with his longtime eBay business.  

​In addition to being the founder, he is the “Master Cutter,” the man who cuts all that fabric.  He does all the heavy lifting, a lot of the ironing, takes pictures of the finished products, and has the hard job of keeping Chrissy in check – she wants to buy ALL the fabric if you know what I mean. Together this power team makes Milkman’s Garage run like a well-oiled machine!
