Meet Me

Some jobs require MILES of Garland!

Welcome…   to my Seasonal Home

My name is Eileen and I am a Wife, Mom of 4, Author, DVD Producer, Public Speaker, Owner of a small Publishing Company and Commercial Holiday Design Firm, which only proves that your passion can turn into a career! (LOL)


Time to place the STAR on top of a 30-foot tree!

I thoroughly enjoy “the ART of decorating around the JOY of celebrating ~ the Holidays, Seasons & Special Times of our lives“™!  As you check out my blog posts, I’m sure you’ll begin to notice that I’m passionate about FAMILY, the SEASONS and HOLIDAYS and that I love to share my creativity, so

I hope it inspires you.  🙂


Recently, I wrote & photographed my first book (available in my SHOP).  I also had the help of a brilliant graphic artist and printed it locally, so it’s entirely AMERICAN MADE.  It combines my love of seasonal & holiday design with my own personal, creative, road-tested traditions for celebrating: Holidays, Birthdays, Seasons & EverydayIn today’s hectic and insecure world, I’m a firm believer that it’s a good thing to create fun & happiness for yourself, your loved ones and friends… whenever possible, and in whatever amount suits your style.




I made it my mission to create traditions, seasonal fun & holiday magic for my boys while they were growing up because I knew that would provide them with wonderful memories.  What I didn’t know (at the time) is that it would also grow “ROOTS” of pride, self worth and the value of togetherness.  So often, my grown boys still tell me that they have incredible childhood memories, which continues to be my inspiration to create new traditions, only much more “grown-up” versions like our annual “Christmas Game Night” and “Family Fun Day” (example below):

Other creative projects….

I’m currently working on a very comprehensive Christmas “How To” book, so, please check back for updates on that.  It will  be the most unusual Christmas book you’ve ever seen and will finally de-mystify the art of holiday design for you.

And I just completed my 1st, full-length DVD, titled “Secrets of the Pros… How to Decorate a Christmas Tree”.  It will walk you through the entire process as well as tons of BONUS ideas too.  Here’s some feedback…

I just wanted to let you know that I received the DVD today.  I’ve watched it once already and will watch it again later tonight as I start to get out my decorations.  I love, love, love your ideas!  You are easy to follow and very thorough in explaining the whys and hows of your decorations.  I can’t wait to try out your ideas over the next couple of weeks.  I’m a clod when it comes to decorating but love to do it anyway, and I know I’m going to have a huge improvement this year because of your DVD.  I hope you sell hundreds of these DVDs!  I hope you also consider making more.   Thanks again, best of luck to you, and a wonderful holiday season to you and your family as well!      Sincerely, Melissa


So, that’s my story!  Thanks for stopping by and if you have a moment, please check out my hundreds of blog posts and my little SHOP too
