mn home staging: The NEXT Design Star on Active Rain! - 07/26/08 04:34 PM
Alright all of my Design Star Fan Friends...who (in your HO) is going to be THE NEXT DESIGN STAR?

I never get to watch the show but DVR it and just caught up recently. I thought it was a very tough week as these truly were my top 3 favorite designers.
So...between Jennifer and Matt - who do YOU think it will be?
I'm wondering if we need to start our very own little AR Design Star. Do you agree...and who would you nominate?

mn home staging: Selling your stuff...the key to MOVE IT QUICKLY!!! - 07/24/08 03:30 PM
So I'm new to Craigslist but have to say...holy cow!
Load up some good pics of your items, price it right...and get that phone ready to go!

Here are some tips i've learned while posting a couple of things we felt were too heavy and/or we didn't use often enough in staging:
1) Take GREAT Pictures. - Get all angles of pieces so people really get a sense of the items they are looking at.- Make sure the lighting is right. - Zoom in so you are seeing the actual item, not the entire room.
2) IDENTIFY where it is … (9 comments)

So....I honestly have to say when I got my first invitation to this FACEBOOK thing, I was thinking:
1) What the heck?
2) Ok, I'm way too old for this
3) After getting umpteen emails from old high school and college friends...WOW, this thing is quite connected somehow.

mn home staging: GET IT SOLD! Minnesota Home Stagers Show Review - 04/20/08 08:08 PM
Ok - I've blogged about Home Staging / Design shows before but have to say with each "Get it Sold" show I watch I really am more and more impressed with Sabrina Soto and how the represent what Staging can really do. It's still a bummer they don't say what the cost for her expertise, services and labor is so that Sellers get a realistic idea of what it truly costs, but overall I think it is wonderful that they show how we partner with Realtors and Homeowners to help them price it right and package it perfectly for that coveted … (9 comments)

Have you ever been told you LOOK LIKE SOMEONE...or they KNOW YOUR TWIN?
I have...and it cracks me up.  I love seeing what other people think I look like.
