Welcome to the Barn
Hey y'all! I am Melissa , and I am so glad you have dropped by my podcast/blog ! Graceful Barn is a site designed to bring you everything from inspiring guests that shine their light in their businesses , to decorating on a budget to fun and easy DIY projects, with a few deep thoughts in between. My passion is to help women to keep the word of God around them simply. I create by using fun country sayings and simple worded items for the ever day woman. Our goal is for our customers to feel love, comfort and unstressed for a more positive day .
As women we don't do for ourselves as we do for others. And we need to !
I create fun, warm and inviting hand crafted home décor and apparel. Our focus is to help you to be more present with those you love and shine you light southern style.
Are you a woman who love crafts/ DIY Projects...
I teach a step by step method of all my tutorials. They are every month a home décor painting tutorial, and I have a block of the month as well. I actually have a hidden message each month for my chicks. I provide all pdfs and currently working on stencils as well.
Are you a woman get overwhelmed and stressed.....
One of the greatest benefits is that you will start to take time for you. As women we do not do this. You will find that you will become more creative and your thoughts will start to become clear. You will be more focused on what you need to accomplish and will start looking forward to your time to create. You will be less anxious because you are doing self-care. You will also have a beautiful home as well.
Woman that is busy.....
If you are like me a busy wife, mom, grandma and working to do all the things .... inside the group gives you easy access to all the pdfs and videos step by step. I can say personally that creating and painting has help me so much in relaxing . You see when you start painting and get focused on what you are creating. The mind gets busy and you enjoy what you are making. Your thoughts of that busy day seems to fade away and you will be more focused. You will be more productive and more positive for the day. Your family will even start to notice.
What Inspires You?
When 2020 started I was fired up to work on my business more. I took online classes from Heidi Easley and Stu McLeod (Tribe) and it was drinking from a fire hose hot and fast learning all the things, I new because of everything going on that paint parties I had to quickly and I did. I saw a great need and that was compassion and shining love for others.
I developed strong friendships with fellow artist and I decided to collaborate . The year of 2020 was a crazy year for all but little did I know how crazy it would be. I soon learned that the greatest lessons I would learn would be on relationships. In a world filled with darkness of illness , death, elections and no toilet paper. I soon learn what shining my light and purpose would be. I had a lot of wins but also hard lessons that I had to heal from. This is no t the time to talk about that but will be at a later time. So girl to tell ya I have new podcast called It's Gravy Baby Podcast. I hope you check it out and tell us what you think.
