Let me try to put into words what this series was like for me. Imagine that you check your weekend schedule and realize you have absolutely nothing planned to do. Your house is already clean and your laundry is all folded and put away. Then you realize the kids are staying over at Grandma’s house and your husband already has plans to go out with some friends. You have the silent house all to yourself, it’s kinda drizzling and overcast outside, so that means you have a free pass to lay around on the sofa and do absolutely nothing, GUILT FREE. You get caught up on all of your favorite magazines and tv shows and Pinterest boards. You scroll through your DVR To Do list and see that there is a marathon of Barefoot Contessa and vintage Martha Stewart Living episodes from the late 90’s and early 2000’s (the pre-incarcerated years). THEN you see PBS has put Bob Ross back on the air for that day only so you sit and watch him paint happy little trees while you eat your favorite snacks and enjoy your favorite drinky-drink. Imagine the feeling you would get from having sacred alone time to just chill out and enjoy absolute selfishness that left you inspired and ready to go create something wonderful for yourself and your family. It is blissful. It is amazing. It is calming and relaxing and inspiring and battery-recharging and when it’s all over with you go back and rewatch a few of your most favorite episodes while baking homemade bread because you’ve been so inspired by the courses that you don’t want the magic to end. It is WONDERFUL. That is exactly what the Creatively Made Home e-courses made me feel like last year.
And this year? My dear friend Karianne from Thistlewood Farms is also added to the line up along with some SUPER talented ladies. AND it’s all about the Holidays. So imagine everything I said, but add a crackling fireplace and a cup of hot cocoa and a cinnamon scented candle and Christmas lights twinkling in the background. NOW imagine the feelings that will invoke.
Oh holy night…
I don’t know of my current frazzled Back-to-School, buried under mountains of laundry self can contain my excitement over the anticipation of this upcoming event. It is going to be AWESOME.
