Homeschool Happy Hour with Pamela Llano. Informal chats with experienced homeschool parents

Join me for Homeschool Happy Hour!

If you're one of the many families who are suddenly struggling with crisis schooling, please take a deep breath and give yourself and your kids a big ole hug and also, a giant friggen break. I know these are hard times. Whatever today looked like, you're doing a great job!  

One of the things that most helped my family find our way on our Homeschool Adventure was being surrounded by wonderful & wise people who showed us a wide variety of ways to happily make it work  

I'd love to introduce you....So, I'm hosting a series of very informal video chats with some of the awesome veteran homeschooling mamas I know to share their experience.

I believe that seeing options offers hope. You can find what works for YOU and YOUR FAMILY. It doesn't have to look like someone else's version. One size does not fit all~ in education or life.

Episode 1 of the Homeschool Happy Hour is up now. 

It's about a 30 minute chat, so grab a cuppa your beverage of choice and watch or have a listen!  

Please share if you know anyone who would could benefit. It's a subject near and dear to both of our hearts and we'd love to help if we can.  

(PS. I'm not a film maker in any way~ this was just something that spoke to my heart and I wanted to share some of the blessings that helped me on my journey) Enjoy~ 

Fun Stuff!

What Are You Looking Forward to Unfolding Next?

As we all collectively look towards resetting into the next chapter of life post COVID 19, we have a huge opportunity to create many of our new norms as we go forward~ both personally and culturally.

What's really important to YOU, and how can shift your life more towards that?

 What do you actually want to get back to? 

What do you realize you no longer need or want? 

I'm working on an online workshop to help you turn to your next page with more connection, creative solutions and power

~More of YOU in your life.

It won't be your ordinary e-course or art night. 

I'm thinking more like a guided personal experience and virtual women's circle. We'll explore creatively with writing, art and design to help you:

Re-connect with your dreams

Find your way back to your roots

Make empowered choices for how you move forward in life.

Dates TBD    Spaces will be limited in these creative workshops.

Moonlight Art Night online workshop creativity  connection, women's circle, Pamela Llano

Moonlight Art Night

What Are You Looking Forward to Unfolding Next?

Online Childbirth Class

This experience was created because we all deserve something more meaningful than a step-by-step, paint by numbers kind of art class / ladies wine drinking night.

These workshops are both a time to have fun creatively exploring AND a time for connecting in a spacious and unique space. 

 Since we can't circle up in person, I'm working on developing online gathering opportunities with projects that you can do at home while still being connected as part of a group. I think it's going to be amazing!

 Each individual will be inspired to experiment with creative processes and create their own unique piece of art while enjoying great conversation and the collective energy and wisdom that happens when women come together.

Eco Fashion Show, Upcycling, ReFashion, Trashion, Sustainable Apparel, Redding, Whole Earth Festival

The 2020 Whole Earth Fashion Show is on hold!

2020 Whole Earth Festival Postponed

 In light of current events, the tough decision was made to postpone the 2020 Whole Earth & Watershed Festival, which includes the Eco Fashion Show that I've been coordinating.
Organizers were hoping to reschedule before summer, but obviously, a lot is unknown at this point. 

Many of you had attended workshops and were working on amazing, creative ideas  for the show with upcycling, trashion and refashion.

 I hope you'll keep going on your projects.

Sustainable Fashion matters! 

As we move forward, we're more aware than ever of shopping local, supply chain and 

supporting things we believe in.
I'll be sharing updates and info on the sustainable design front here so keep an eye out, and

 sign up for my mailing list to keep in the loop!

In the mean time, check out these short & inspiring video interviews with talented northern California designers Julie Kong  and Gini Holmes (Less than 5 minutes each!)
