My Staging Assistant Works for Catnip

Home Stager

I am so fortunate to have such a lovely and versatile staging assistant.  Chloe works behind the scenes making my job easier.   She is a self-starter....when she sees a task that needs attending to, she jumps right in and does it.   

I would like to share some photos of her on the job:

Judy ~ what a cute staging assistant and amazing photos of the proof of her work ethic!  Very well trained, obviously.  Does she have any friends who'd like to emulate her skills?

That is too funny and cute!  Of course my new puppy has not been so helpful.  He has chewed on several staging rugs.  One is beyond repair, so not so cute!

Judy, Great assistant, great photos and great presentation.  Thanks for sharing.  I have a pretty great partner, too.  She loves to go everywhere with me -- has even flown to Southern Mexico right under the seat in front of me.  Her name is Yazmine and she really enjoys the computer

Judy, I love your assitant.  I have two assitants.  The orange one is actually my grandkitty who lives with us.  She is assisting me right now.  She is helping me to hold up the couch.

Annie -- She is definitely versatile.  Just yesterday, I caught her up on the ironing board smoothing out some window treatments!

Maureen -- As far as work ethic goes, she works whenever something arouses her curiosity...which is all the time.  I have never seen another cat so intrigued with everything that I do.

David -- She was certainly thinking about using that hammer!

Triangle -- Give your puppy time.  Chloe is 12 years old and improves her skills with each passing year.

Chris -- Thanks for the compliments about Chloe.  She loves praise!  I don't know why her eyes look amber in the photos because they are actually a very beautiful green.

Caron -- She is very smart and usually quite helpful!  I don't know what I would do with her.

Cynthia -- I think the secret to her shiny coat is her constant bathing...which she does almost more than sleeping.

Gary -- Yazmine is gorgeous!  Thank you for sharing her photo.  You are very fortunate to have a partner who enjoys traveling.  Chloe prefers to stay home and work behind the scenes and she is becoming quite fond on my new netbook.

Jennifer -- Thank you!  She is very attentive to details...never misses a thing.

Marchel -- How lucky you are to have two wonderful and adorable assistants.  They are doing a splendid job of holding up your couch!  Thank you for sharing the photo of them hard at work!

Mary -- Thanks for stopping by.  She doesn't miss a more than she sleeps!

That was cute - and what a great t-shirt!  do you wear it around?  Is your phone # on the back?

Hi Georgina -- It is a great t-shirt but it's not mine.  My daughter works for Verizon Wireless and it is one of their promotional shirts.  She brought it to me so I can give it to my father.  He loves to wear shirts with quirky or bold messages.  However, the wheels of my mind have been set in motion to come up with something similar for my own business.  I will blog about it if/when I come up with something.
