Backstage Boot Camp

Are you ready to start your own Wood Sign Party Business, like yesterday?!! Maybe you’ve already been planning and learning all you can about the party business, but still a bit unsure as to the “how” to do it? You want simple information, not all the technical jargon, need some hands-on training, someone you can ask a quick question.

What if I told you that could be ready in as little as 6 Weeks to kick of your first party!

I’m Sharene Smith, my husband and I own Creative Wood Parties & Plum Craft Crazy!

We did our first paint party a little over four years ago and we were hooked!! We love the simplicity of them, I’m a huge Jo Jo (Joanna Gaines) fan and love anything rustic!! With that being said, it was not always sawdust and glitter for us! We had a bunch of kinks to work through and it would have been nice to have a go-to person that had already experienced some of the issues we had to plow through.

In our 6-week Boot Camp we teach everything you need to know to execute your first party

We’ll cover in six weeks a new topic each week- we provide you with videos you can re-watch over and over to get the technique down and take notes.

We go live at the beginning of the week to cover training and tools we are providing and we end the week with a live Q&A to answer any questions you may uncover as you go through the training.

In addition- I’ll provide you with some hand-outs that will become valuable tools as you go through the boot camp and beyond. Many of these tools I still use after four years!!

Not to mention you’ll have access to me and my husband in our Private Facebook group- this will enable you to ask us questions throughout your learning- maybe your standing at the lumber yard and have a question about wood… most of the time we are available to answer your question before you leave the store!!
