The Jewel Box™ Home Reader Stories

Suzanne's Little Nursery

At long last I have posted the wonderful small home living stories generously submitted by Jewel Box™ readers over the last number of months. From as far away as Berlin, Germany where Katie lives with her husband in an apartment measuring 480 square feet, to Suzanne in Massachusetts who traded up to 8000 square feet, but still cherishes the tiny home where her children were born, each story is a unique celebration of small home living. For a peek into these much loved smaller homes I invite you to visit The Jewel Box™ Home website under Readers Stories.

And for those of you who live in the Chicago land area, I would love to see you at one or both of the Jewel Box™ classes I will be teaching this summer on the Evanston campus of Oakton Community College. The class descriptions and online registration link follow.

THE JEWEL BOX HOME: INTERIOR
DECORATING ON A BUDGET FEE: $50

In this class you will learn how to create a beautiful and practical living space without going over budget. Find out about quick fixes and
design ideas that don’t cost “an arm and a leg.” Come to class with pictures of the targeted room that could use a new look.
ARC H01-31, ETHS, 1 Tue., 7/14, 7-8:30 pm CRN 50025

THE JEWEL BOX HOME:
ENTERTAINING WITH STYLE FEE: $50

Learn how to throw a cocktail party with style, and on a budget. Find out about staging and flow, planning the guest list, and the best food
to serve. This class gives you all the party basics to make your next get-together a success.
ARC H01-32, ETHS, 1 Tue., 7/21, 7-8:30 pm CRN 50026

To register online visit https://my.oakton.edu/cp/home/displaylogin.

I have to admit, I find the Oakton registration process a bit confusing, so if you have any questions call 847-982-9888 and press 3.

Until next time!

Warmly,

Genevieve
