Fall Creative Class Schedule + Pop Up

I was going to wait until after school starts to post the schedule (8/22 for us, so grateful to have a little more time with my boys) but I know some people are wanting to book lodging for Texas Antique Week and plan for fall so I am going to go ahead and post asap….so here you go..this is a full schedule but I am very excited looking forward to meeting lots of new friends this fall at my studio in Brenham!

We will start off with another general “finding your style, heart of the home” themed decorating class in September!

Class descriptions below include explanation in a little more detail, as will future blog posts, and there will be some special guests!creativeclassschedulefallOctober will include my good friend and prop stylist Becki Griffin of Curious Details, so excited about that..y’all she is hilarious and so so full of ideas and talent! This will be a good one for sure!

And then in November I want to invite all of you that are “piddling in decorating” or trying to get off your feet decorating as a side business or full time, or maybe you have been decorating for friends but it’s time to charge…well come and talk about your experiences and challenges and let me share my tips and tricks and some of what I have learned over the last 12 years. I certainly don’t have it all figured out and this will NOT BE A BOOKKEEPING CLASS your can bet on that ha, but I can share so much about buying to the trade, how you represent yourself legally if you are not ASID or don’t do auto cad, and lots of practical tips on fees and charging etc. I am ready to share it all because the world is a big place and we need all the decorating angels out there we can to make the world prettier, one home at a time! My bestie Camille of Camille Dickson Design will be here for this class to talk about her recent transition from French teacher to decorator and stylist and how she has made that transition and what she has learned so you will two different perspectives and lots of information in this class!

and then last but not least, THE Keith Taylor of Fayetteville, AR, is coming back to Texas to talk Christmas decorating with natural items…he is a ball, the sweetest ever and so full of talent.  His holiday home was featured in Southern Living last fall and I will be posting more about that soon as time nears. Another one not to miss!

So there you go, spots are limited, all will include meals and most will include tours of my home and of course time in my studio on the square in Brenham, Texas.  Brenham is 85 miles from both Houston Hobby and Austin airports and very easy to navigate.  If you need help with lodging we can help with that as well possibly just drop me a line but def move fast on lodging for the Sept classes held during Texas Antique Weeks/Round Top time!

You can register for any of the classes posted on the class page at this time! Classes are non refundable but you may transfer to another person or later date if something comes up!

More Creative Class photos

For the second portion of our first HMI Creative Class, we headed to my home a few minutes away from my studio for lunch and a bit of a home tour.

When registration exceeded my initial expectations I knew a simple box lunch just would not work and I feared a busy Saturday on the square might mean waiting for our large crowd in the downtown lunch places (though there are some yummy ones for sure)…So with the help of my amazing friend Tara Royer Steele (yes the Pie Queen) to do the food, Super Nana to fluff the place and Natalie Dawley to attend to any other details, I decided to have the lunch at our little home. I also knew I would be speaking a lot that day so the idea of a little field trip break was perfect!

I love long communal tables so this idea formed in my head and I am so glad the storm held out and we were able to all together on the front porch.  Bramble & Bee flowers and nibbles from Tara’s charcuterie boards made it perfect.

Not to mention those placemats.  Dionne from Nib and Pixel lettered these kitchen paper placemats and I nearly cried when I opened the box…what is it about white ink on kraft paper that we love so??? But we do!

We used our kitchen table for the spread . . .perfect styling ladies! I can’t believe this is the only photo of Natalie and Tara! THANK YOU!

And “Mama’s Lemonade” too boot! Nana and I did not plan to BOTH wear red shoes but we love red! And we love our Camille!hmiccmamacamille And these pretty ladies the best of all… what a talented and friendly group of women, they seemed to have so much fun and enjoy one another and the day, positive and creative people coming together…exactly my prayer!

It is cheesy to say I felt like I was in a movie?…Natalie even thoughts to put music on…details I forget when doing things on my own but when you let people help, you aren’t exhausted and can enjoy the event and little details like “oh wow there is music playing!”

And finally, the group photo.  Doesn’t everyone look so lovely! Again, I would not have done this without the help of the “two Natalies” . . . Natalie Lacy Lange my talented photographer friend and my new friend Natalie Dawley of twobewed.com.   I will never do another event without these girls if possible!
