It is with great joy, a touch of anxiety and a lot of healthy fear that I invite you to ✨Your Welcoming Home✨:A Weekend Workshop on the Art and Science of Making Home.

I’m hosting three days of learning all about home at my own home and barn outside Charlotte, NC.

There will be second hand shopping together at #TheDepotAtGibsonMill , yummy food, vignetting, foraging for branches, and a whole lot of home truths happening.

I would LOVE for you to come.

If it works, and you all like it, I’ll do it again and again until no one wants it any more.

If we all hate it and no one wants it, we’ll pretend this announcement never happened.

All the info is here, we have 9 spots left.
