Meet The Design Twins in Waco Instagram Retreat

Meet Us at Our Waco Instagram Retreat!


Waco Instagram Retreat


Have you heard our latest exciting news? Jodie and I are hosting a very unique event…The Design Twins’ first ever, in fact. We are calling it: The Gathering:  An intimate Instagram Retreat and Workshop. It will be held Sunday, Oct 14th – Tuesday, Oct 17th just outside Waco, TX on a private 30-acres estate. There will be 48 tickets sold. Tickets will go on sale July 1st. We are announcing it now so you have to time to check your calendars, talk to your IG besties and prepare. Head HERE to read more details about our Waco Instagram Retreat, including costs and what is included.

Our Why

You might be wondering why we decided to create this event. Jodie and I have been helping people grow on Instagram for several years. This help has come mainly in the form of blog posts. We have also enjoyed helping people privately offering personalized Instagram consulting. We always really love getting to know our clients. By the end of our hour-long phone call we usually have a hard time saying goodbye because we have made a new friend.

We Want to Meet You!

We have been working on developing an online course for over six months. Recently we taught a class at Snap Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. We loved meeting and teaching people in person so much that we began to think about ways that we could meet people and teach in person. It is so powerful and personally rewarding to connect with people. We know we can reach many people online, but we are craving the in-person connection.

Waco Instagram Retreat

Of course choosing a place to have it was easy! Visiting Waco and the Silos has been on our bucket list for way too long. Then we found a venue that is perfect in every way for what we envision for our event (and it just happens to be across the street from Chip and Joanna’s farm!) The intimate size is exactly what we wanted in order to create a bonding environment of friendship and support. We want to have time to meet and talk with every individual. We will be learning, growing, and inspiring each other. When we leave we will all be part of a unique and bonded tribe of women on this journey together.

A Few Notes

  1. We have made it as affordable as possible. We don’t want cost to be a barrier.
  2. 48 people is not a lot of people. But if this is successful and half as much fun as we predict it will be we will be doing it again!
  3. Do not be discouraged if you can’t make this one, but please let us know so we can keep you informed of future events.
  4. This venue is double/triple occupancy only. It is a women-only event. It is all about friendship and bonding. If you don’t want to make friends (and share a room) this event may not be for you. All we can say is #1 –  we literally cannot WAIT to meet you and #2 – GET EXCITED!

Wait until you see how easy this fun DIY project is! Michelle from Thistle Key Lane shared how to create an Antique Zinc Finish and the result is so beautiful! I can’t wait to try this out. I think I am going to use her tutorial and create an ice bucket for outdoor entertaining!

My family and I are now dining most nights outdoors since the weather is warm. But, now and then we will have a chilly evening, and that is when I bring out our lightweight blankets. This week I’ve rounded up my favorite lightweight throws for you. These blankets are easy summer decor that is essential for summer nights. Happy Shopping.

  1. Wow! That sounds like so much fun. I’ve been wanting to put together a meet and greet of some kind but you’ve made this such a valuable retreat. I hope it’s a smashing success!

  2. Juliet says:

    Wow … this sounds so exciting! My first thought was I want to get in line for a spot .., my second thought was i’m Probably not the type of account you intend for this event … and my third though was to check my calendar and I don’t think it’s possible. But I know it will be a huge success and I’ll be excitedly awaiting an announcement of the next gathering date. The venue looks and sounds amazing … and so close to Chip and Jojo! Woo hoo! xo

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      We would love to have you join us in Waco, sad to hear the dates don’t work with your schedule! We hope it will be a success as well and hope to see you on our blog and Instagram in the future! Lots of love, Julie and Jodie

  3. Joyce Flores says:

    Really excited to learn more from the women behind two of my favorite IG accounts. I was fairly new to Instagram when I decided I would start documenting our new house build. After several months of rather boring, and uninspired pics from our contractor, we are now just two weeks away from completion. I am bursting with excitement to move into our new home and start documenting it’s transformation from my own personal point of view. I have much to learn, and am grateful to have found your Blog and IG accounts. I’m really hoping to join your retreat in October. It sounds like it will be an invaluable experience.

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      So glad that you are loving our posts and that you enjoy our blog and Instagram! We can’t wait to see you at the retreat in October!
      XO ~ Julie & Jodie

    • jjdesigntwins says:

      Erica, Right? That’s what we thought! We are over the moon excited for this event. We think it will be powerful and just about as much fun as we can handle haha! Hope you can make it. Blessings, Julie & Jodie
