Feel Home: Creating a Timeless Feeling Home

I know that one of your favorite courses that we offer on our creative network is anything with home!

Being creative and creating a comfortable and beautiful space is at the heart of many of us (and even more desire to know how).

But where do we begin?

How do we make decisions that truly reflect our heart, style, lifestyle and budget? How do design spaces today that we will be happy with tomorrow?

I am honored to share that designer Melinda McCoy of House 214 Design will take us step by step and share how she helps her clients make design choices in Feel Home: Creating a Timeless Feeling Home.

We all have the same questions when it comes to designing our homes. Where do I begin? Is this really me or am I making this decision because it is the latest trend? Am I still going to like this look six months from now? Whether you are the everyday home designer or working with a professional, the choices you make for your timeless home need to be made with intention. This course will guide you through the process and teach you the framework that I use to create a timeless home with my clients. We will create storyboards, discover the language for a timeless home (hint, it has a lot to do with your personality), and learn the exact design elements that create a timeless feeling. You will learn by doing. As a result, making design decisions for your timeless home will be easier. You will be making your decisions with intention and confidence rather than because you saw it in the latest issue of a favorite magazine. This course will teach you not just the what, but the how and why behind creating a timeless feeling home.

 

Feel Home is an online course with 4+ hours of content, lifetime access and it will begin November 1, 2016. The early registration price is $38.00.

The Big Picture Free Video | Honoring your gifts, finding balance and living a creative life that you love

Being a wife, mom, friend, business owner, household manager, school juggler and creative are some of the hats I wear. I know you are the same and probably more.

I also know that if I am not intentional with my marriage, children, schooling, business, creative time etc. than I miss out on opportunities of being present in each of these areas.

I am not saying it is easy but it is very much worth it.

Being intentional and seeing the “Big Picture” has helped my life become beautifully full of the people, activities and beliefs I hold most dear.

I am a work in progress and I have areas I struggle with and areas I definitely need to grow and change but that is part of life and learning how to live and do better.

This is just a glimpse of where I am right now.

We are truly all in this together and we can all learn from each other!

I hope you will also share how YOU see the Big Picture.

If Adventure, Creating and Travel Speak To You {I have something for you}

Sometimes we get to be wild explorers and travel far away, other times we can connect with other creatives not far from home and at other times we have the joy of hunkering down right where we live and creating among our day to day life.  Each one of these are life giving and creative building travels.

I love that my travels have allowed me to build beautiful new friendships, sketch among stained glass windows and old wooden pews, sip espresso as I watch the locals pass me by and learn to get out of my comfort zone and create wherever I go.

I also love that it has taught me to find the beauty in the ordinary and familiar.

Whether you are looking for adventure and creating near or far I wanted to share with you what I have coming up. I would sure love to have you join me!

Hello Everyone!

Our new doors just went in the new studio today and I thought it was the perfect time to give you a first look at our under construction studio!

Hopefully, we will be painting the walls this weekend and the cedar planks will go up on the ceiling next week.

We are getting there but still soooo much work to do!

Thanks so much for looking and cheering us on!

The Everyday Artist {some of our favorite supplies}

When I create I only want to be surrounded by my most trusted and favorite tools and only the tools that help me to express myself.

Too many supplies can get in the way, distract and even help you procrastinate (like any of us need any help with that one).

Each time we offer you a new supply it is because it is tried and true in my own studio. I wouldn’t offer you anything less.

I wanted to share with some of the beautiful supplies currently in the shop.

Feel free to take a peek and ask away if you have a question…

Watercolor Paper Midori Style Art Journal

I don’t leave the house without an art journal to collect ideas, patterns, for practicing and trying new techniques.  These are the most gorgeous handmade midori style art journals created by a local artist.  The journal has 3 watercolor inserts. The cover is made with sturdy fabric paper with grommets. It is paintable. Comes with elastic closure and binding system. The art journal comes in two sizes.  It has 3 inserts that are made with 140lb watercolor paper (nice and strong for layering wet mediums) folded in half. The journal opens almost flat and is easy to remove inserts to work on and then put them back. The outside edge of the watercolor paper has been distressed.

Large Vintage French Ledger Pages

While traveling to France for a recent Living Studio retreat I came across the most incredible and large vintage ledgers.  I had never found vintage ephemera so large and absolutely stunning.  I can never use all that I brought home with me and I am parting with some of the papers.  The vintage ledger pages date from 1867-1873.  You will receive 6 total pages (3 of each ledger) and each page measures 21″ x 14″.

 

 

French Linen Aprons (full and half)

We have collected vintage French linens from our travels and we have created some of the most gorgeous art and life aprons.  These linens are soft, warn and ready to have a new life.  Each apron has two generous size pockets and extra long ties so you can wrap them and tie them in the front if you please.  Some aprons will even show some of the original embroidery.

We would love to wrap up a beautiful supply that will become a part of your daily creating!

How To Launch Your Own Product {Haven Conference}

Home.

That word holds everything for me and it is no surprise that time and time again HOME has brought me to new places with my friends, family, creativity and business.

We have created our business out of our home, have filmed more classes than I can count from our home, have packaged and shipped thousands and thousands of product over the years from our home and I have found that HOME is one of my strongest love languages.

My love for family, faith and the art of gathering has allowed our home to become the safest of places to launch each new dream that we have had.

For those that know and love me it will come as no surprise that I will be speaking at the next Haven Conference.

Haven is a blogging and design conference all about home.

The whole conference is open to anyone “passionate about blogging, DIY projects and creating beauty in your home”.

I am honored and excited to be speaking about how to launch your own product.

I wish I had had a place like Haven to gather, connect, dream, brainstorm and learn when I was starting and later growing our business.

Even if you have been creating a business for awhile now…I think we can forget how amazing it is to be encouraged, supported and inspired and what that does for you and your business.

Here is a peek into our time together:

PRODUCT LAUNCHING

You have ideas, the market and you see a need that you know you can fill with your product. Now what? How do you take your authentic gifts and ideas and create a successful product that can take your business to the next level?

In this session we will discuss how to take your ideas and make them into a physical or virtual product. We will also talk about how to keep up the momentum after your product launch to ensure a long lasting business.

  • Who is your market and are you filling a need?
  • How do you create a cohesive brand and product?
  • How will you manufacture, and what are your options?
  • How to get your customers excited for what is coming and get prepared for your launch.
  • How to keep the momentum going.
  • Don’t go alone. Let’s talk about collaborations and how they strengthen your brand and product.

To read more about the weekend or to register click HERE.

If you are coming please send me an email letting me know at contact@jeanneoliverdesigns.com.

If you have specific questions about launching your own product I want to hear and would be honored to answer it at Haven.

I hope to see you there!
