Which ActiveRain Friend Would I Like To Meet In Person? Michelle Molinari

By
Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

At the top of my ActiveRain “who would I like to meet” list is Michelle Molinari

michelle molinari

 

Michelle is not only a brilliant home stager, she’s an expert on curb appeal and a genius when it comes to color… my go-to source for paint related information.

Michelle  has mastered the fine art of conceptual staging….creating virtual “after” photos to help people visualize the possibilities of transformation. 

 

curb appeal

 Anyone who knows me knows how much I appreciate photo editing skills! 

Another thing I appreciate is humor….Michelle’s life is like a sitcom.  Her Home Staging partner in crime is her mother and the stories of their day-to-day life are beyond entertaining.  Michelle really should have her own reality show.    Sadly, she hasn’t written a post on AR since last year, and I miss her very funny and informative posts. Luckily we are friends on facebook where she makes me laugh on a daily basis.  

Now for the most interesting thing about Michelle….

paranormal investigator

She’s a paranormal investigator….a real life ghostbuster

She has a true appreciation for the macabre and loves Halloween, which is my favorite holiday.  Did I mention yet that she is a special effects makeup artist?   

Not only do I want to meet Michelle….I want to assist her and her mom on a staging job and I want to join her on a ghost hunt….preferably on Halloween!

Good morning, Sharon --- Now, the "Ghostbusters" theme song will keep playing in my mind today.

Sharon,

Michelle sounds like a fun and colorful individual. She is probably a true asset to all her friends and neighbors this time of the year. Heading over to her blog page to search for those hidden goblins.

Roger:  I'm surprised you don't know her.  She's one of the first friends I made here.

Michael:  That's not a bad thing...everytime you hear it, think of me.  I like that you will be thinking of me all day!

Sarah & Lester:  She has helped me out a few times with her knowledge of color.   Her paranormal and makeup-artistry skills are a bonus!  She has to be a great person to hang out with person.

And there goes your witty photo editing Sharon! Love it! I also agree with you that we need someone like Michelle to sell a property. MLS photos are horrible.

Patty:  Michelle is very talented when it comes to both hands-on staging and virtual staging.  Add her other talents and she's the full package!

Donna:  I don't know.  She is missed!

Sharon, Michelle is a favorite of mine as well, and I do miss her here. I had forgotten she was a paranormal investigator but had no idea she was a special effects makeup artist.

Tara, I have to say Michelle has some talent with her photo editing! I had to look twice to see that this was indeed the same house! Thank you for introducing her to us and to let us know where we might find her!

Sharon, Michelle sounds very interesting.  I am glad that you highlighted her.  I have always wanted to try one of those virtual staging programs.

Hi Sharon,

I don't know who Michelle is; however, I do wish she'd start writing again. She sounds like a very interesting lady. Hopefully, this wonderful post you wrote will persuade her to come back and allow others to get to know her too.

Thank you Sharon.

Sharon, I don't know how I have missed Michelle. She sounds very entertaining. I have to go over and check out her posts.

Silvia:  She has dedicated a ton of time to mastering the craft.  

Lisa:  I don't think the programs are very easy to use.  If I remember right, Michelle has gone through many of them and ended up creating her own system of sorts.

Patricia:  It would be wonderful if she returned.  Check out her posts if you have time someday.  Well worth the read.

Debbie:  I think you will be glad you did!

Thanks for the heads up, Sharon.  I will have to check her out based on your recommendations.  I hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

Ron:  Michelle doesn't write her blog any more and I miss her.  I'm so happy she is active on facebook though so I still get my fix!  If you read her older posts, you won't be disappointed...she is a great read.  I'm not sure if she checks for comments so there may not be any communication if you comment.  

My weekend has been quite relaxing....a bit stressful negotiating for the boat, but we finally reached a price we can agree on and looks like we are getting a new boat!

Hello Sharon --- I just read your Boast-A-Post about Michelle and see that I previously commented on this post written many years ago that you referenced today.  Sounds like a charming, crazy and creative co-hort/ counterpart for you.  Gone far too soon.  Rest In Peace.  I really should be punished for forgetting about this introduction.   Need to study the Tara Tutorial.

Michael Jacobs  Oh please don't expect me to be able to tutor you on memory. That would be a huge mistake. I shared a post recently that I had originally written five years ago and didn't even remember writing it. LOL

The things I don't remember on a daily basis....yikes!

I just read your Boast-a-Post regarding Michelle, and came over to read this post also. Wow, a ghost-buster too! Michelle was obviously an amazing person.

Kat Palmiotti  She was pretty cool! I loved her even more when I found out that little tid bit. LOL

Debe Maxwell, CRS  Her passion for that show was beyond words...she put it into action. Unbelievable action that most people wouldn't even attempt. I'm not sure what happens to that now. I hope her TWD family are going to keep it going.
