Workshops Testimonials



”As an experiential marketing agency we understand that it is just as important to deliver enriching and impactful live experiences to our own teammates as it is for our clients. We were thrilled to have Shannon in our GMR Marketing Charlotte office to learn more about the KonMari method and we all walked away with meaningful tips to better organize our work spaces and home spaces. Shannon’s energy and passion for organization was infectious and we have a sincere appreciation for not only the impact she had on us, but her ability to spark joy in so many lives around the Charlotte community. 

 She also allowed us to make a fool of ourselves folding clothes. We’ll keep practicing. After all, ‘we believe experience matters.’ Thank you, Shannon!” ~ Marie Swegle



“Financial freedom goes hand in hand with freedom from stuff.  A dollar can only go so far.  When we are not paying for more stuff to fill our homes, we are then able to redirect that dollar towards experiences with our loved ones, saving for retirement or other financial goals.  Our clients are often sandwiched between storing children’s old memories, a lifetime of their own belongings and acquiring new belongings for grandchildren.  Eager to move forward in retirement, they feel trapped.  Shannon did an incredible job speaking directly to our audience explaining the very specific and thoughtful KonMari decluttering process and then taking them through activities that they could do in their own homes to create space for their future while giving appreciation to their past.” ~ Ivey Baker

“The Spark Joy program hosted at the library was well attended.  Attendees of various ages/stages in life seemed to enjoy the program and find it to be inspirational and motivational towards the beginning or continuing their KonMari journey.” ~ Linda Campbell


“Shannon Huneycutt is a brilliant educator and her seminar is truly outstanding! Her strategies work immediately and they are a lot of fun. I reorganized my home for 2 days after attending her workshop. My feet had wings! She not only sparks joy, but she also ignites it and brings joy to all aspects of life. Thank you, Shannon!” ~ Ann (Hickory Library KM Workshop Attendee)



“Shannon is amazing! I have been curious about this particular method of home organizing and decided to attend this workshop. I dragged my husband along and WOW were we both impressed! If you want to get your closet, room, office, garage or entire home in order she can help. No need to be scared or nervous or ashamed of your ‘stuff’, she is the most real person I’ve met in a long time and is extremely knowledgable and friendly. As a Realtor, I realized she could help sellers and buyers as they are looking to get a jump on the dreaded packing/moving/unpacking and this will help lighten the load. I’m going to start recommending Shannon to clients as well as family and friends.” ~ Naomi (Main Street Books Workshop Attendee)



“We had a very educational and inspiring session with Shannon Huneycutt, owner of Spark Joy Charlotte. We walked through the tidying steps detailed in “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up”, learned valuable strategies, and had some engaging activities. Who else went straight home and cleaned out their junk drawer? 😂 Thank you for the excellent tips Shannon!” ~ Jessica Bourque

“We loved having Shannon present at our library and teach us about Marie Kondo’s method of tidying up. She was a very engaging speaker, and was able to explain her experience with KonMari in a way that personally resonated with our patrons. After Shannon’s workshop, many of our patrons felt more comfortable with the process of KonMari, and expressed interest in beginning their own journeys in tidying up. It was a great experience all around, and our library is grateful that Shannon was able to take time out of her schedule to be a part of our Summer Reading program!” ~ Jenny Levins


Adult Summer Reading Program

Harrisburg Library


“Big news:  KonMari comes to Harrisburg!  Shannon Huneycutt brought the art of decluttering and “sparking joy” to the Harrisburg Library on July 16th.  Attendees seemed to be having too much fun to be learning about organizing and letting go of possessions, but indeed they took home practical solutions to sometimes overwhelming problems.  Some commented afterwards that, going into the workshop, they were not sure they could use the techniques at home, but after the workshop felt confident that not only could they use the strategies, but could teach them to their children!” ~ Stacy Garber

Kannapolis Library


“Thank you to Shannon Huneycutt, owner of Spark Joy Charlotte, for coming last night! Everyone had a lot of fun. Shannon did such an amazing job presenting the information, that it seemed possible for the attendees to go home and start organizing. I’m happy she was able to answer everyone’s questions, I know they really appreciated that! I have to say that getting to practice organizing junk drawers and folding clothes was the highlight of the evening! Talking about doing the KonMari Method™️, and actually getting to put things away using her folding techniques and small bins, was really helpful to see before doing it at home. Thanks Shannon!” ~ Carly Varnadore

Mt. Pleasant Library


“We were so excited to have Shannon lead a KonMari program at our library!  Shannon made the task of organizing a home seem less daunting by sharing tips for organizing each room and by focusing on one category at a time (paper, clothing, etc.).  We received such positive feedback from our patrons who participated, and we’d definitely have this program at our library again!” ~ Amy Kendrick

Concord Library


“Shannon gave a Spark Joy workshop at my library and it was sensational! She is an excellent and engaging presenter whose advice and guidance was both practical and empathetic. The audience loved her and loved it! The practice exercises really drove the message home. It was an eye-opening presentation-I can see why the Konmari method is life-changing. It lets you see what it really important not just around the house but in your life. Shannon demonstrated that she really cared and was with you every step of the way. I give her and her lessons the highest recommendation!” ~ John Eury

Midland Library 


“Shannon came prepared and ready to Spark Joy! She was organized and thorough when describing the levels of the KonMari method. I look forward to implementing the skills into my own life.” ~ Rustyn Whiting

GBA Women In Banking Conference

“Shannon presented recently at our Women in Banking Conference, an annual gathering of about 85 women bankers from all over Georgia. Our sessions focus on both professional and personal development and Shannon hit the mark with both in teaching our group about the KonMari® method. She did a great job of explaining how getting your home in order can spill over into your work life in a positive way. Shannon’s experience shone through as she spoke and her presentation was the perfect mix of practical instruction and humor. What a joy to see someone like Shannon who has so clearly found her professional purpose! Shannon demonstrated the KonMari® folding method and everyone practiced with a t-shirt they’d brought to the session. At the end Shannon had a couple of attendees do a fun little competition to see which team could clean out a junk drawer the quickest. Our planning committee was really excited about including the KonMari® session in this year’s conference, and Shannon did a great job!” ~ Kathy Friestad
