We have members from all over the world and like never before we see each other and can relate on a whole new level. I wish it wouldn’t have taken this pandemic but I am thankful for all of the ways I am seeing people reach out, encourage, give what they can and to spread joy.
While we are all spending more time at home on lockdown we wanted to make sure you have some creating to do. Each week we will share a free offering of some kind to encourage connecting to your creativity. Creating has gotten me through some of my darkest days and been one of those “places” where I have discovered myself more, found forgiveness for others and have had beautiful ideas revealed.
I hope during this time that creating can be a place of deep peace, rest and joy for you and your family.
We are offering the course Art of Home for free until Saturday, April 4 at 11:59pm MT. Use code HOME at checkout. This offer does not allow exchanges or discounts for another course.
So much love to you all!
Over the years I have also heard other women talk about things their moms or grandmothers did to make their homes special and practical. Torn knees were patched, everything was made from scratch, fresh produce was preserved for winter and someone was stitching something sweet and lovely. I think that many of us want to make sure we preserve some of our favorite memories and make them a part of own modern lives. We want to create an artisan home!
When we can embrace our handmade home and see the beauty in the little things then our homemaking becomes art! It is not perfect and the beauty is actually in embracing the imperfection. It is following my Grandma Jeanne’s advice to only surround yourself with things you truly love and use. It is pulling out your prettiest things and not saving them for company but lavishing your family daily. It is not apologizing when your home is messy and inviting friends and neighbors in anyways. It is about allowing your home and gifts to be used to do something sweet in you and those around you! It is about sitting down with moms and grandmothers and grandfathers and hearing about their stories and finding your story in the midst of it. It is about passing on the best of it to our children and grandchildren.
Here is a little bit behind the heart of the Art of Home!
This course came about while talking and cooking with my mom and sister. My sister and I both couldn’t stop smiling about the heart of the course which was including the older people in our lives and listening to the ways they were taught how to make art of home!
Art of Home | Modern Simple Living will be about some of the lost arts of caring for our home and family.
This course contains step-by-step videos with decorating, cooking, gardening, entertaining, housekeeping and more…so much more!
The following will be shared: The Art of Farm to Table, The Art of Gathering, The Art of Domestic Moxie and The Art of Reclaimed Style.
Maybe it will even bring back sweet memories and we will all learn from each other.
Come join us…
and Jeanne Oliver
