This April is for YOU!

A weekend for YOU to be encouraged and refreshed.

Hosted in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, we’d love for you to join us this April 20 – 21, 2018 for our 7th annual event. (And yes, this is the view from our meeting room. I took this photo with my cell phone and it’s more beautiful in person.)

Becoming 2018 is a weekend designed to encourage and inspire women to live intentionally by becoming more creative, purposeful, and frugal. As women, many of us desire to be more intentional with our time and financial resources; more intentional with our family and homes. We want to save time and money where we can, so we can spend it on things that matter, but aren’t sure how to make that happen. I guarantee that you will laugh, maybe cry, but have tons of fun doing it.

As we gather from all walks of life, we will tackle some of those day to day issues that typically seem mundane and give you a sense of magic. Our desire is that you will leave, not only refreshed, but encouraged, empowered, and motivated with the practical and tangible ideas you have received. Plus, with our Girls Night In on Friday night, we will have a ton of fun hanging out, letting loose, and enjoying some good ole fashioned girl time.


From encouragement for our hearts and topics ranging from DIY, home decor, hand lettering, meal planning/freezer cooking, saving money, finances, natural living, organization, fashion, mothering and family, we touch on nearly everything heart and home. Becoming 2018 will breathe life and give purpose to our everyday moments.

If it comes to creating, repurposing or being intentional with our money, time and energy, we want to cover it.

We’ve now had the privilege of sharing our love of all things creative, purposeful and frugal with over a thousand women from around the US, and it’s a joy to have met so many of you.

Our desire is that all women can attend, and that is why we offer the conference, hotel, three meals and lots of goodies for under $125 (if sharing room with friends.)

Please note that you will need two separate registrations if you are planning on staying on-site. Conference tickets are purchased separately.  A ticket includes all of the break out sessions, special activities, goodies and the Ladies Night In, and can be done through this link.

Your choice of lodging and meals will need to be reserved directly through Lake Junaluska’s reservation center, but don’t delay too much because we will sell out this year. Rooms are on a first come, first serve basis.

Please see the Registration Details and break down of conference prices before you call to reserve  your room.

Kick back and relax. The beautiful mountains of NC are calling you to this perfect girls get away. Come be a part of something new, unique and exciting. Join a room full of women whose desire is to Become More.

We are so excited to meet you, and enjoy this weekend with you. It will be here before you know it.


Becoming 2018 Agenda

With three main focuses for the weekend, Becoming Creative, Purposeful, and Frugal, we offer amazing workshops that touch on all three aspects.

Each speaker is an expert in their field, and eager to share their passion with you. Don’t worry, some of the topics will be repeated, ensuring you can hit on your top choices.

Remember, you do not sign up for these. They’re included in the low cost of your conference ticket ($60).

Becoming Frugal

We all want to be more intentional with how we spend our money, and there are lots of ways to do it. Whether wanting to learn quick tips on saving money in the kitchen or decorating your home like a pro without breaking the break account, we have suggestions on it all.  For most of us, we desire to save where you can, so we can spend on what we want.

We will cover beginning and advanced ways to save, including creative ways to put money aside, budgeting, meal planning and freezer cooking.

Becoming Purposeful

Many of us fly through each day with lists to get done that we never complete. It’s time to live with intention and purpose. Remember what you started all this for, and refocus on creating organization and intention in a very chaotic world.

Whether you are single or have a house full, understanding your long term vision is key. Whether you desire more encouragement on mothering, living on purpose or organization, these days seem long, yet the years are short, so be blessed by the wisdom of those who have maneuvered these waters for decades.

Becoming Creative

HGTV has revolutionized the way many of us think about decorating, but how can we bring that creativity to our own homes? Be inspired and encouraged with the notion that “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.”

From experts in DIY and home decor, you will learn how to cast a vision for your own home and find inspiration everywhere. The best part is that all this can be done with just pennies on the dollar.
