Many of you know my company has adopted a "will not disclose" policy regarding all before photos that are taken of occupied staged homes.  Unless my clients have made a specific request, in writing, Perceptions AdverStagingTM will not use them in our marketing endeavors.  For those that have aske...
A new year brings excitement for me; it's much like I remember shopping for school during the hot, lazy days of August when I was a kid.  Anticipation begins building for the upcoming year sometime around Thanksgiving; something about that first big holiday gets me in gear and I start mentally re...
Recently, I got some amazing news.  I found myself sincerely speechless when I was nominated for the RESA Staging Innovator of the Year for 2007.  To say that I am deeply humbled and honored to have been recognized by my peers for this incredible award is the understatement of the century and I a...
Sheesh...the meme bug is relentless this time of year.  Terrylynn Fisher recently Meme'd me - you can find her MeMe here.  Since this is my 2nd MeMe and the first can be found here, let me share 5 things I KNOW you can not know about me.   I like to imagine being able to invite anyone at all over...

Between getting ready for the holidays in my own home, considering those that have directly impacted my business most directly and profoundly this year and possible extra special gifts for them and my recent post Little Blue Boxes, I was reminded of the business discount I have with Tiffany's and...

This year for Christmas I asked Santa to bring me a pure white cat.  To make it a little more complicated, I wanted this cat to be a rescue.  It had been several years since we'd had a cat in our family and I was finally ready to admit a new one into the fold.  Inspired by Patricia Kennedy's It W...
