Decorating on a Dime by remaking something yourself. We all love Pinterest, what about a real live session of sharing what WE have done. Each attendee brings 1-3 items they have DIY’d for their home. You can also bring a photo of the item to share. You are given five minutes to share your idea and the hints and tips in making it. You can bring a hand out to share (bring 20) I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with. I will be taking pictures to share on our webpage.
Start looking around your house to see what you want to bring. Don't have any Do It Yourself items? That's okay, come anyway and share something you have seen or bring a list of your favorite DIY Bloggers. All are welcome, come join the fun!
HOW TO CREATE AN ORGANIZED HOME
Let's get organized! Is organizing a challenge? Is it hard to let go of anything? Or to let go of particular kinds of things? Are you just not sure what ‘the rules’ are about keeping ‘it’? There are so many kinds of thoughts that get in the way of this decision-making process and we often just give up. But take heart - there are also a number of techniques that can make this process easier! Come join me for a talk about the challenges of letting go. I’ll be sharing insights and how-to’s to help make letting go easier.
I have found Grace Bamlett, CPO® from Organized Outcomes to come and share with our group. Grace knows it can be difficult to "let go" of things at home and she has techniques that can help in the decision-making process. Most of her clients have difficulty at some point, even if it is only "Do I have to keep this piece of paper?" Decision-making techniques are useful for all clients, even if they don't find it particularly difficult.
Grace understands the difficulties you are likely to have encountered with being organized. She knows that getting (and staying) organized can be frustrating and even overwhelming for you. Grace feels there is nothing so satisfying as bringing order and beauty to chaos, to help others reach their goals, to improve their quality of life.
NEW Team Staging Event
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
850 East Bidwell, Folsom, CA
between Trade Joes and Lowes
W ould you like to hone your staging abilities? Learn new vignette ideas? Network with fun and creative women?? Then you won’t want to miss the Home Decorators Club June Staging event. This is now a confirmed event! I'm so excited.
This summer we are launching a NEW annual event called Team Staging. This Home Decorators Club Staging Interactive event is being put together by our friends at Home Consignment Center. I'm working with the store manager Marisa Akman-Moore and she and her team have in-depth experience in staging, store merchandising and design. Marisa will give a quick talk on how to pull together a home interior vignette. Interior Colorist Carol Shaw will give a presentation about color and the meaning of those colors in your home.
This is a group activity that is limited to 30 people. Our group will then be divided into 5 groups of 5-6 people. Upon arrival, you will check-in and receive a name tag, receive a vignette tips sheet, and be assigned to a “Team.” After our presentation by Home Consignment, you will meet your fellow team members at an assigned section of the store. There will be a countdown to “Go” and the teams have one hour to arrange your assigned vignette to rearrange and stage the space utilizing anything from the store. Each team will have a store staff member to give guidance.
There will be a panel of judges including the store manager Marisa Akman-Moore, interior designers on her staff and one surprise judge. One team will be declared the “winner” and that team will get prizes.
Light refreshments will be served compliments of our hosts The Home Consignment Store. A $5.00 (five dollar) fee is charged at all meetup event, at sign in, to defray meetup costs. I have heard Home Conmsignment Center will be giving out a discount coupon, so you want to be there!
Before and after photos will be taken and posted onto the Home Decorators website. We will also take team photos! We meet for a coffee after the meeting to toast to the success.
Hope to see you there, bring a friend to share in the fun!!
Home Decorators SWAP
Youwon't want to miss our annual Home Décor Exchange Party. An exchange party is where each guest brings 3-8 home decor accessories in good condition to swap with each other! Not only will you have fun, but you’ll clean out your attic, find new (to you) decorating accessories, support your Home Decorators Club, and help others in need (left over items will be donated to Charity) Here’s how it works. Each guest brings 3-8 home accessory items that they just don’t use anymore (such as a vase, picture, sculpture, wine rack, serving platter, silver, dishes, glassware, linens, rugs, bolts of fabric, holiday decor, lamps, chandeliers, …you get the idea). You drop those items off at swap location the night before the swap. When you arrive you see them up in good retail fashion on tables so everyone can view them. Then draw a number that will tell you when it’s your turn to pick an item to take home. There will be finger foods and snacks and plenty of time to make new friends. There is a $10.00 Fee for the event and it is paid at the door. Money for this event pays the event expenses and goes to the Home Decorators Club. You may phone me with questions 916.833.7807. Remember I have to limit the group to 25, so sign up right away.
This was the top rated events in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Don't miss it! More details to come and will be shared with only those attending. Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers! Jonelle'
