Who is the Most Awesome Person Today?

My Version of ActiveRain's Daily "Member Spotlight" (Part XVII)

Who is the most awesome person today?

It's that time of the week again folks!

As promised, I've decided to make 2011 a year in which I introduce you, my dear readers, to a Rainer who you might not know, but probably should.

ActiveRain posts a "Member Spotlight" in their "Daily Drop" newsletter. This is my version...

For this week's post, that person is ActiveRain's very own:

Kristine Ginsberg

Kristine Ginsberg


Kristine is not only one of my favorite people here in the Rain, she's also an amazing photographer. Her eye for composition and getting that perfect photograph is unparalleled. And it shows up in her chosen profession too.

Kristine is the owner of Elite Staging and ReDesign serving the Morris County, NJ region.

Her parents knew at an early age that she was destined to do something in the Home Staging and ReDesign field...

In fact, according to my "sources", Kristine would routinely "rearrange" the family furniture...

Kristine Ginsberg gets ready to make some decorating changes!

 

It's rumored that Kristine began her working career as an artist specializing in painting portraits of famous, handsome men...


Kristine Ginsberg is a true artist when it comes to Home Staging and Design.

 

With the stress getting to her from working odd jobs and maintaining a 4.0 GPA in college, Kristine would often find relaxation as captain of her alma mater's fencing team...


Kristine Ginsberg wasn't always the wonderful Home Stager that she is today!


After graduating in the top of her class from the Morris County College for Wayward Girls, Kristine met the man who she would eventually marry and together they became the proud parents of eight children...

Kristine says eight is enough!

Kristine's blogs are always upbeat, fun and insightful. They are a part of my daily read here in the Rain. And, she takes some of the best photographs that you'll ever see.

If you aren't already subscribed to Kristine's blog you need to go and do that right now. We'll wait. (insert Jeopardy theme here as we wait for you to return.)

Kristine was chosen to be the Most Awesome Person this Week not only because she won one of my silly contests, and this was the punishment reward, she was chosen because she is my friend.

And, because she's my friend, Kristine gets to wear the "Craig Rutman Lucky Sweater" this week!

Kristine Ginsberg - The Most Awesome Person of the Week!


Here's to you Kristine Ginsberg, the "Most Awesome Person of the Week"!

Next week's spotlight will be on.... YOU!

Yes, you!

Hi Craig - Kristine is one lucky winner of your awesome person award.  She wears your sweater proudly.

I am curious whether Heather Locklear first saw Kristine's portrait of you before she met you in person.

Another wonderful selection for your series Craig.  Kristine has a heart of gold and goes out of her way to let you know she cares.  Above and beyond!  She's even prettier in person and I for one am happy to know a lady like that is out there!

Craig--I honestly don't think anyone has worn that sweater BETTER. You picked a STAR and we all love her. She's smart, funny, gorgeous, all those things that YOU ARE TOO, but I have to say, that the clown probably fits her better than you....a minor thing, really.

And a phenomenal photographer!

P.S. Glad she overcame the Wayward Girls part and found her "home" on ActiveRain. Truly an inspiration!
