Roanoke, Virginia Workshops

Home Stager with Final Touch Designs, Inc.

If you live in or near the Roanoke area, I'd like to invite you to attend one of my workshops.  These workshops are designed for Realtors and homeowners to collect more information about preparing their home to be sold, adding color to their homes confidently, and helping anyone maintain their home or work fiing systems.  One of the workshops has been prepared just for busy housewives who have a full schedule just keeping up with the family's schedules. 

I'm also presenting a series of "Going Green" workshops that you or a friend might find very useful.  The workshops are offered through Roanoke County Parks & Recreation (540-772-PLAY) and are as follows:

Decorating With What You Have

Get the beautiful look you want for the rooms in your home by using the space you have, the things you have, and the creativity we help you to find.  Learn what the ten most      common decorating mistakes are that make you feel uncomfortable; you'll learn to recognize them and correct them.  Bring to class a photo of a room that causes you the most problems and learn the steps needed to make it functional, appealing, and comfortable.  Then go home and see how easy it is to make the transformations come to life. ages:  teens and adults

Color Your Life!

We use color in our clothing, to make a statement about ourselves and to project an image, yet we've been slow to consider how surrounding ourselves with color can also make a statement about us.  Why are people afraid to use the colors they love in our interiors?  Learn how we all "acquire" that tendency to use colors that we grew up with or that's been handed down to us (you know who you are) and how to break away from the mold we've created for ourselves. New color trends have brought new life to our interiors...and a new, brighter attitude of ourselves when we use them.

Sidetracked Home Executives

Do you find yourself trying to clean house, get the kids to all their events, and have dinner on the table on time each day, only to find that you've gotten yourself sidetracked by everything else, once again?  Well, you're not alone!  We all have difficulty managing our time and prioritizing what needs to be done daily.  Instead of enjoying our days, we are merely "reacting" to them.  Now those misplaced priorities and undirected energies can be turned around.  You'll go home armed with a rotating card system that schedules your chores and events on a daily, weekly and monthly basis.  Consider it a magic box your whole family can use simply and effectively.  Your patience and attitude will improve dramatically as this system changes your life.   Ages:  adult

Papers, Papers, and More Papers

How do you manage all the junk mail, financial papers, appointment lists, business cards, coupons, magazines, and all the other papers you accumulate?  You begin first by defining your own organizational style and needs.  This workshop will discuss how to do just that then set up and maintain a "tickler file" for quick filing and retrieval of important papers.  Next we'll discuss how to set up an office filing system that works for you and your style of learning.  We all fall behind with paperwork, but we can conquer the piles and keep them small and manageable once we learn a few tricks.  Find out how simple it really is. The whole family can now access papers quickly and painlessly.

How Safe are Your Household Cleaning Products?

Did you know that your favorite cleaner could be making you sick?  Compelling evidence now links the chemicals in our household products to a range of conditions including cancer, asthma, allergies, and many other sensitivities and disorders.  Yet cleaning products enter the marketplace with little or no testing for potential health risks.  This workshop will provide you with lots of information about what harmful ingredients to avoid, choosing alternative natural products, and even making your own nontoxic, eco-friendly products with ingredients you already have in your kitchen.  Learn how to save lots of money and keep your household safer for young children.      ages:  teen to adult
