{Creatively Made Home}


I am so excited about this new e-course! If you have ever needed help making your house feel like a home or creating a look all your own, this is the course for you!

My story of what home means to me~

As a child we moved a lot.  Honestly, sometimes we only stayed in a city for a year or two- I think the longest we lived anywhere was four years.  The only place I ever felt like I was “going home” to was my Grandparents house in a small town in southern Minnesota.  It always smelled the same, it always looked the same, and my sweet grandparents were always there when I walked into their front porch.  I remember driving through the countryside that surrounded their little town seeing charming old farmhouses surrounded by land and animals.  I dreamed of one day having a home like that- a place that welcomed us the moment we turned into the drive.  A place that we would stay forever, raise our children, make our memories, and one day welcome all of our children and their families for holidays.

I had a vision- a {picture} of what it would look like.  So I took what skills I had learned as a child in my parents house and I went about building a home of my own.  But the funny thing about building a home- it isn’t only about how it “looks” but how it really {feels}- and our home didn’t feel right.  You see, I put so much emphasis on having everything look pretty, on having everything perfectly positioned and sparkling clean that I didn’t realize all of the things that were missing.  You see, what really matters when your family comes home from a day at work or school, or your guests arrive to gather over a meal in your home is that they feel comfortable and welcome.  They don’t care that everything is perfect- they simply want to know that they are welcome and that you are as happy to have them in your home as they are to be there.  I will be honest- it has been a learning process for me my friends.  And, as a creature of habit, I have developed a few tried and true routines that make being relaxed a whole lot easier.  I can’t wait to share what I have learned with you!

 

 Join me and some of the most creative women I know for Creatively Made Home.

Jeanne chose each of the women not only because of the beautiful homes they create but how they have incorporated the truest joys in everyday life.

Each woman has a style and story all her own.

 

 This is a five week online course that will be hosted by

Jeanne Oliver – the mastermind behind this amazing course shares this~

I wanted to create a course that celebrated what really matters in your home…..you and your family.

I also wanted to celebrate making life beautiful in the everyday.

I know that so many want to make their homes beautiful but feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start….so they do nothing.

I believe that everyone should be surrounded by beauty in their homes and that has nothing to do with how much you spend.

I think sometimes we can get lost and distracted with everything that comes at us each day.

Sometimes things can look so perfect and we as women may feel inadequate.

It is time to exhale and delight in your home.

It is time to open your doors because of what is inside of you…not what is inside your home.

Our desire is that this five week online course will change how you see yourself, your home and your family.

* Each week you will have amazing truthful videos from not only the five teachers but other creative women.

* Each week we will take a room from one of YOU and all five women will give their suggestions telling you how they would transform the room with their style.

* There will be 50+ project videos.

These will be incredible videos that include everything from gardening, cooking, gift giving and decorating.

* There will be written tips from each woman telling you how she starts a room, picks paint, fabrics, etc.  You will learn where to start when putting your own home together.

* Tons of beautiful house photos from each of the five women.

* Videos that truly reflect what life is like in each of their homes.  The stuff that life is really about.  Believe me it has nothing to do with the perfect table setting.

* Each woman will share their own truthful journey about how they started making their home a reflection of their hearts.

* Each person registered will get an easy entertaining e-book to download.

It will contain go to recipes for beautiful and easy entertaining (they do go together), photos of table settings that take the stress out of having people over, favorite drinks and so much more (and their funniest entertaining story).

* There will be a private Facebook group to connect with other class members.

* There will be a once a week live discussion with one of the teachers!

* You will get printables and pdfs to keep and use again and again.

This course is about loving your home, loving your family and blessing those around you….and having fun doing it.

If you have taken my other courses you know how much I put into them.

This course will lavish you with ideas, beauty, inspiration, joy and encouragement!

Come and play house with us.

An e-course in an online class. The class is held on a website. There is a private classroom that only people that have registered for the course can access. Before the class begins you will be sent a welcome email with a login and password to access the course. Each Monday (of the five week course) the full week of videos and content will be available. All videos are pre-recorded and you can watch them at your convenience. The videos will be up until the end of February. That will give you over 4 months to watch the videos again and again.

  1. This sounds amazing, i’m in! My only question is on timing and dates – is there a specific timeframe we all need to be around to participate or is this more of an “on-demand” work at your own pace sort of thing?

    • kimberly says:

      Hahaha! If I did the girls may hang me. It really is a well-rounded thing, not so much one tip at a time sort of course. I really do think it is going to be fabulous though!

  11. Chris says:

    Awwwe…was just hoping for a little tidbit to entice us!! :) You know like….use seashells for everything!! :)

    • kimberly says:

      I can only speak for myself when I say you won’t see seashells. You will however find inspiration on how to find the right “canvas” for your home- colors, decor, and creating an environment that you love and is uniquely you~

  12. Chris says:

    What?? How can you not love seashells…little gifts from the sea! :)

    • kimberly says:

      I don’t disapprove of them- however they are not a part of my decor. They may be included in the homes of the other girls- you will have to check in to find out! :)

  13. Char says:

    Oh how I would love to be in the company of all of you talented peeps! As a designer I sometimes feel like my shop takes me away from my house (like the cobbler’s barefoot children!) I have one room that needs drastic help, please pick me!

  20. Pamela says:

    Hi there! I’ve spent my morning reading all about this course and reading your blog! I’m thinking of joining the course…we just moved our family of 6 to Paris and as exciting as that sounds (it is exciting!)…we’ve moved into a beautiful flat that is furnished. I’m having a hard time “feeling home” and calling this place our own. I miss my things! But, I’m spending my days visiting markets and shops..picking up things here and there to make our flat a home. I think this course is just what I need right now!
    Merci!!
    :)

    • kimberly says:

      Hi Pamela,
      I have a few friends who have done the same thing (to France – not necessarily Paris) and I have heard the good and the bad (although it is so difficult to imagine there is a bad side… ;) ). I can only speak for my contribution but my parts are really about living, and eating, and slowing down and enjoying the simple moments. My parts aren’t decor-heavy so if you are looking for a nice blend of all of that, this course will be perfect for you! I will say that much of how we live is influenced on my annual trips to France and my love of the lifestyle there.
      So happy you are joining us!
      xx

  23. Debi Burton says:

    Kimberly . . . you know me, I’m always working. My priority focus has been on staging for shows, and our home has been like an orphan. Being a perfectionist (you can relate), I can’t seem to enjoy my own environment. It always seems to come last. Think I NEED this class, LOL!

    You’ve thought of everything, and I’m delighted the class can be viewed at my convenience. I keep pretty weird hours/days. Look forward to participating in this brilliant, new venture of yours–thank you!

    So looking forward to this course. Do I need to have any supplies, papers etc…before we start?
    Thanks
    teresa

    • kimberly says:

      Hi Teresa,
      You won’t need supplies to begin with. Once you see the projects, you will decide which ones you want to do and each project comes with a supply list for it.
      See you in the course!

  28. Lani says:

    I just found you through Pinterest and I signed up. I’m so excited! We just purchased a home that is a completely different style than our previous home of 21 years and we are looking to do something different with it and need lots of ideas. So looking forward to this!

  29. Hello Kimberly-I just paid for the e-course yesterday October 17 so perhaps I am rushing but I have not received an email yet.
