{creatively made home} e-course

I'm in full on nesting mode these days, organizing, simplifying, purging, and so on. Not a lot of artsy activity happening, but I have big plans once I'm done! I find it so difficult to focus when my surroundings are cluttered, and since I'm a very messy artist...well you do the math. I'm determined to mend my ways because I truly do believe that order and discipline lead to maximum creativity. As an incentive, and a reward, I signed up for the Creatively Made Home e-course that begins October 22nd. Jeanne Oliver, one of the creative forces behind the workshop had this to say about it:

I wanted to create a course that celebrated what really matters in your 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 they do nothing.
I believe that everyone should be surrounded by beauty in their homes and that shouldn't have 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.

With autumn here, and winter approaching, I know my family and I will be spending lots more time at home, and I want it to be a cozy, relaxing haven that we can all enjoy. Right now, my style is all over the place, and I want to create a cohesive, beautiful environment that allows us to enjoy our creative pursuits and functions well for our lifestyle. I'm looking forward to being inspired by this e-course, and to discovering my own design aesthetic. If you would like more details, you can read all about it here.
