I am moving the launch of Expressive At Home to Friday, May 19th.

I need more time, and I realized too late that my launch date choice would preclude me having a relaxing Mother’s Day. (Oops!)

Of course, I want the course to be the best it can be, and delaying a few days will help me reach this goal.

I am also extending the deadline for discounted registration.

You now have an extra week after the launch of the course — until Friday, May 26th at midnight to get the 50% off discount.

On May 27th, the price will go from $49 to $99.

I have to say that this is definitely the most transformational course I have ever created.

I am so glad I expanded my platform to include creativity because I definitely feel like the right person to be launching this course.

If you had told me ten years ago, after Writer Mama launched, that I would be launching a course like this, I would have said, “Oh good. Because that is a topic that I really need.”

Maybe that’s why the course content is feeding me so much. It’s support I’ve needed, given myself, and been assimilating for many years. And I don’t think there is anything out there quite like this course in all the world.

I hope you’ll join us! Learn more here.

I have been working hard on my new online course, and I am super excited about it. And then something hilarious happened.

I thought I would be sharing things I already know how to do because they are working for me in this course. And I will!

But what’s amazing is how much my home has changed since I dove into creating the course. Our place feels totally new and revitalized. Again!

I guess this is good because that is what I am promising students. I just didn’t realize I needed my own advice so much. But apparently, I did! And I am inspired to do even more for you, so stay tuned as more exciting changes unfold.

My  hope is that Expressive At Home will have the same powerful, profound effect on you and your home as it has had on me. The format of the course has been evolving as I work on it, and I want to keep everyone up to date. So here is the latest iteration:

Updated Course Outline

Expressive At Home: Enlightening Exercises To Skyrocket Your Creativity

Are you tired of feeling like your current home does not reflect the person you have recently become?

Are you feeling fearful, tired, or distracted and looking for ways to re-ground your attention back into feeling more creative?

Do you feel like life has been so busy that you never seem to be able to make time for doing what you long to spend time doing?

Would you like to make discoveries about the ever-expanding person you are becoming with each new day?

Do you want to walk out your front door feeling energized and walk back in your front door feeling inspired?

This course contains invitations to explore your personal desires using your home as a mirror of what you want to express next. The exercises are simple yet evocative. Every part of the course will help you learn new things to appreciate about yourself.

This is not a course you complete in one day. The curriculum is meaty, contains how-to tutorials, and invites you to take gentle actions. You will also participate in hourly, daily, and monthly micro-processes that can enrich your life immediately.

We are living in challenging times. Every day our senses are assaulted with crisis after crisis, and the overwhelming question we feel bearing down on us is: what are we going to do about it?

Unfortunately, living in a state of constant crisis is unhealthy. This type of stress is hard on our minds, on our bodies, on our emotions, and ultimately, on our spirits.

I see this playing out in post after post on social media. Mostly I see various degrees of outrage, contempt, or worse, hopelessness.

I have always believed that we can’t solve the problem at the level of the problem. I also believe that creative people are better off contributing to the world from a state of inspiration rather than a state of desperation.

We can change the world, and we can do it in a healthy manner when we focus closer to home first, before we speak or act. We can feel more personally powerful when we reel our attention back to the place where we live, and start there, rather than focusing too much on things beyond our control.

What do you have to offer the world?

Each of us is door to an endless stream of expression that can make the world a better place. But only if we believe that what we have to offer is valuable.

And believe it or not, you can go from creatively frustrated to creatively flourishing in just a few exercises. I have been teaching creatives for almost two decades—and I believe that self-appreciation gained through self-expression is something worth leaning.

When you become a Beta User for my new online course, Expressive At Home, Exercises To Skyrocket Your Self-appreciation, you benefit starting today.

I am now seeking Beta Users for the course, who get 50% off the price by signing up in advance, and then get to participate in the creation of the course by answering four rounds of questions over the next month.

This course is for creative women, and if you are a mother, I hope you will consider this course a Mother’s Day gift to yourself.

Being creative at home is not only for professional creatives, but if you are a creative professional, this course will refresh your process in multiple ways.

So what are you waiting for?

I am sure you would love to be more expressive at home and make your home a place that mirrors back how awesome you are.

Register now for Expressive At Home and I’ll send your first round of questions to answer right away. You can read all the details about this course in my most recent ezine and register there.

I hope you will join us for what is sure to be my most enlightening course yet!

But hurry. The course goes up to full price on Mother’s Day Wednesday, May 17th at midnight and you’ll miss a couple of rounds of the questions if you wait that long to register.

I hope to work with you!

And thanks for sharing this post with anyone you know who might be interested in becoming more Expressive At Home!

How many of you have read The Secret Garden (LINK) by Frances Hodgson Burnett or watched the 1993 film with Maggie Smith (LINK)?

I had an epiphany after watching the movie with Samantha over spring break.

The premise of the story is so simple, and yet so profound. Here’s a summary from Amazon:

Mary Lennox is sent from an India as an orphan to live at Misselthwaite Manor. She arrives as a sour-faced, sickly and ill-tempered little madam but becomes friends with local lad Dickon and her poorly cousin Colin. In their restoration of a secret garden all their lives are changed for the better.

This story conveys so much of how I feel about the healing power not only of gardening, but also of having a special place reserved just for you where you make your personal magic happen.

This is a story about the ways children, who are in touch with their natural instincts, can assist each other in finding wholeness in the simplest of ways. Once that wholeness is found then greater healing opportunities present themselves, for example with other people.

Seeing this film and noticing how deeply it touched me cemented my desire to offer an online course that could act like a secret garden for participants. I loved this idea, once I had it, but was not sure what form the course would take.

Well, fast-forward a few weeks and I have a plan for the course, and now I am looking for Beta Users to work with me in co-creating the course in exchange for a steep discount.

The course launches on Mother’s Day Wednesday, May 17th, making it the perfect gift for creative moms, and the cost for Beta Users is only $49.

On Thursday, May 18th, the price of the course will go up to $99.

Real Life Recommendations: Turn Up The Heat In Your Home With Items You Will Love

April 8, 2017

Even though it’s already April, I have a fire in the wood stove right now. And even though we have had a handful of beautifully spring-like days, we just had one heck of a hail storm and it almost got down to freezing last night. Chock it up to Oregon’s temperamental spring weather! That in-betweener […]

Creativity Books To Inspire You To Become More Authentic Every Day

March 21, 2017

I love books that inspire me to be true to myself. And let’s face it: there is a ton of pressure in our modern world to conform, capitulate and acquiesce. Some days, I think it’s a wonder anyone can express themselves authentically for even five minutes, never mind all day, every day. There are so […]
