Interviewing Jimmy Don Holmes

Gary and Kathy Leland with Jimmy Don and Lori Holmes

Hey folks, I guess you have figured out by now that Gary and I took another road trip to Waco, Texas.

This time we went to Crawford, Texas to interview Jimmy Don Holmes, and boy oh boy was it a fun relaxing day!

If you are reading this, then the chances are that you know Jimmy Don as the great Metal Artist that creates inspirational metal signs for Joanna Gaines, star of the HGTV Fixer Upper TV show.

You can find his “Magnolia Market” exclusive collection only at Joanna Gaines' Magnolia Market in Waco, Tx. But, did you know Jimmy Don has his own creations at his retail store and website at JDHironDesigns.com.

Jimmy Don shared with us about his brand new (opened Dec.'16) store and workroom, his craft, his wife, and his country life in this fun interview.

I hope you enjoy watching this episode of The Fixer Upper Podcast as much as I loved interviewing Jimmy Dom.

Thanks to Jimmy Don Holmes, the great Metal Artist, for spending the afternoon with us. Jimmy Don certainly is a good ole' boy, and a pleasure to talk with. He will welcome you too if you pay a visit to JDH Iron Designs at 9685 Lone Star Parkway, in Valle Mills, Texas.

Lori Homes With A Line Of Her Own

Anyone who has ever watched HGTV's Fixer Upper knows Jimmy Don Holmes is the popular metal sign art designer that makes appearances on the show.

Jimmy Don Holmes is Joanna Gaines' resource for inspirational quotes created in metal. If you have watched an episode or two of Fixer Upper on HGTV you have probably seen his amazing art work on the wall.

My husband, and I recently drove down to Waco, Texas to interview Jimmy Don Holmes for our Fixer Upper Podcast. He is definitely a good ole country guy that is quite welcoming and very easy to chat with.

It was really great to meet Jimmy Don, and interview him for the podcast. It was interesting to hear how he has such a passion for his work. He was so fun to chat with. I could of pulled up a rocking chair on his big porch and talked all day.

During the interview Jimmy Don announced that his wife Lori was coming out with a new line of her own metal art.

It was special that Jimmy Don broke the news about Lori's new designs on our podcast. I liked how proud he was of his wife's very first four signs.

After the interview we got to meet Lori Holmes, and she took the time to proudly show me some of her new designs, and tell me all about them.

She is using Jimmy Don's style, and taking it to the next level in her very own art studio where the magic happens.

Her new line of metal art is called Lori's Designs and it is fantastic. She has added color, dimension, and a new style to an already great collection of metal art.

You are going to fall in love with her great new collection. Lori showed us the first four pieces of her collection, and they are wonderful, and so creative.

I bet you will see some of Lori's art in a future episode of HGTV Fixer Upper. I will even bet you a dollar Joanna Gaines has already used one of Lori's Designs in an episode that is being filmed for season 5 of the HGTV Fixer Upper. What do you think? My fingers are crossed!

We wish Lori much luck with the new designs. I think they are beautiful and can't wait to see her future designs.

You can view their designs at
JDHirondesigns.com/product-category/home-decor/loris-line-home-decor Wow what a creative couple. I suspect their business will continue to grow.

Thanks to Lori for giving me the inside scoop about the release of her wonderful new collection It is my pleasure to break the news to our Fixer Upper fans, you are going to love it!

More Info

The Modena Wallpaper Book comes from the distinctive designer line of Collins and Company made for Seabrook Wallcoverings. Proudly made in the USA, the character of Modena Wallpaper Book blends the organic qualities of nature with the tailored appeal of menswear. Raised, metallic, and suede inks bring a higher quality of definition and detail to every pattern. Castiletta Wallpaper offers a faux marble tile with a dusting of glitter to give a “geode” appearance. Trance Textured Wall Covering uses a suede ink to bring dimension to this diamond or harlequin shape. Kapult Stripe Wallcovering is a tiny dotted stria overlay with a mesh ribbon stripe. Deserea Damask Wallpaper applies a distressed dimensional damask over a subtle stria background for a more contemporary ogee design.

Gene Wall Covering takes a sophisticated interlocking key to a new level with the style of a faux grasscloth. Gene Stripe Wallcovering flattens out the key into a wide stripe with the same faux grasscloth style. Gene Block Wallpaper uses a brushed finish on rectangular blocks for a modern horizontal tile. Molly Floral Wall Covering brings leaves to life on a dark stucco type background. Grace Stripe Wallcovering uses metallic inks on an irregular horizontal stripe. Gil Contemporary Wallpaper has an etched appeal leaving lines similar to a wire brush on metal. James Stripe Wall Covering is the epitome of menswear with herringbone and linen.

James Plaid Wallcovering looks like a stylish pair of men's dress pants or a blazer with a tiny houndstooth inspired plaid. Animal Skin Wallpaper mixes a snakeskin with a crocodile skin in kaleidoscope fashion. Charlotte Damask Wall Covering imposes the frame of a damask over a tailored plaid. Charlotte Wallcovering interlocks tiny squares to create a subtle grid pattern. With an average price of $74 per single roll, this mid range designer line is budget friendly.

More Info

Retro Living Wallpaper Book by Seabrook Wallcoverings invites you to go a little retro with sitcom inspired wallpapers. Proudly made in the USA on paper from sustainable forests and using water-based inks, these wall covering patterns are environmentally friendly. Suede inks offer raised texture while metallic or pearlescent inks apply more dimension. This entire wallpaper collection goes perfectly with the revival of mid-century modern designs.

We begin with Lucy, an effervescent geometric linking flowers together at their centers. Lucy Grid is made of fluid lines intersecting into an irregular grid pattern. Mindy marries the playful circles of alien thought to the rigid square of an ordered human mind over a swirling galaxy of marble. Mindy Marble gives a look into the confusion of intergalactic travel. The concentric dots of Marsha give an introspective look into the dizzying mind of a teenage girl. Gidget blends the ripples from water with a a quirky, modern floral. Gidget Lines is loosely based on the image created by surfboards crossing in the sand. Jeannie looks like the curls of smoke and the dancing figure of a genie coming out of her bottle.

Jeannie Stripe is reminiscent of the straight lace and no nonsense Major Nelson. Fonzie exudes confidence in a monochromatic geometric design. Fonzie Oval takes you back to coin slots on the jukebox. Fonzie Link was inspired by the buckles on Fonzie's boots. Maxwell takes the lines of a cinched trench coat and transforms them into a classic geometric. Laverne represents the ultimate slapstick and silly behavior of two best friends. Use a wallpaper in your home that is going to make you smile. In case you hadn't noticed, your favorite shows of yesteryear are made fashionable here: I Love Lucy, Mork and Mindy, Gidget, I Dream of Jeannie, Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, and Get Smart.

Tackling The Beast in Crawford, TX

Welcome to episode 18 Kathy & I discuss Sea
son 4 Episode 17 “The Colossal Crawford Reno” on the HGTV Fixer Upper TV Show. The season finale is here and this is the biggest renovation to date! The clients today are show producer Michael Matsumoto and his wife Jessie. The couple have been spending so much time with the show they felt it would be good to have their home in Waco, instead of keeping up a house in L.A., California. They have two wonderful children and want to create a home closer to their life with the show. Stay tuned for an epic renovation of what Michael called a real dump.

Although this is the end of Season 4 for the Fixer Upper TV show, Chip and Joanna have a brand new follow up show coming out called “Behind The Design.” This show will take us behind the scenes of previous Fixer Upper shows and give us a look into the designs of Joanna and also show aspects of the remodels never seen before. We are excited about their new show and we will be releasing episodes to follow this new series while awaiting Season 5 of Fixer Upper!
