"I love the way Tessie breaks down everything so that it feels manageable. She is such a delight to watch and listen to, I can't help but feel happy and excited to get started."

Genna Blackburn, Artist

"In just one week I completely transformed the entry to my office and now I feel more confident inviting people into my space. Thank you, Tessie! It was packed full of value!"

Cynthia, student of The Happier Home Challenge

"I never knew I could make such a difference by just rearranging items I already have in my house. Having a bit of a "team" along for the ride helped me get my messy bookcase looking beautiful. I smile each time I walk past it now."

Corinne, student of The Happier Home Challenge

How does this sound?

What if your home could be...

  A place to laugh freely and welcome friends.

  A home that perfectly reflects your personality and values

  A space that's easy to tidy because every item has a home base. 

  A place of honor for your sentimental objects.  

  A place for your mind to relax and focus on the things that matter most. 

  A place where your family wants to hang out and yearns to always come back. 

"Tessie is such an incredible teacher - her joy comes through in everything that she does!"

Bonnie Christine, Teacher of Creatives

"Tessie's enthusiasm and joy for making home personal and inspiring is contagious! I’ve used her steps several times for redecorating rooms and it's so much easier and fun!"

Bärbel Dressler, past student and designer

Meet Your Teacher

Hi, I'm Tessie

I'm a modern homemaker and artist living in Spicer, Minnesota. I teach people how to create a home that's 100% unique to them. I believe your home should embody your personality, honor your quirkiness, and support your daily life. I'm all about loving deeply, giving yourself grace, and finding joy in the little things. 

I'm a self taught designer and have spent the last 24 years learning how to create a joyful home for my family of 6. I'm a mom of 4 and have lived in 12 different houses all over the world.

"I'm a single, working mom who cares deeply about my home and raising my children. Tessie’s steadfast reminder of taking simple steps to make the home we want has been the most encouraging in my life so far. Her gentle spirit and her LOVE for her family is one of the best examples and encouragements in my life as a mother and homemaker." 

Lissie, artist and single mom

Real talk, my friend

It's time. This is important work. 

As our communities are often hard to recognize and the world becomes more divided, there’s one place that you still have the greatest influence over. It’s inside your own home!

This is important work. It doesn’t happen by mistake and it’s easy to put on the backburner and before you know it it’s been years. At the end of your life if you want to look back and say that you had a joyful home then now’s the time to make it a reality. 

Here's what's waiting for you on the other side:

  A community of like minded friends working together
  Small monthly goals to keep you on track and moving forward
  Weekly video lessons to guide you every step of the way!
