Wow!  What a week this has been.  I am trying to jump into the age of technology!  I joined Active Rain this week and I just set up on Facebook!  I spent a long time looking up old friends.  I need to remember to only do that when I have some time.  Hmmm ...when will that be!  It has been a busy, busy week and I made some great connections.  I will post the article that I wrote for our local news paper today.  Each month I write a feature article in the News Enterprise.  Seeing as though an article was published today, I thought I would share it with a bigger comunity!  Enjoy! Timing is everything right?    I was watching HGTV the other night with my daughter.  She watches staging shows with me and gets as excited as I do about the great projects we see.  She often thinks we should try ...

Today marks the one year anniversary of my business Staged SO Right, a full service home staging company.  What a year it has been!  This is the best profession ever and one of the most rewarding.  The ability to enhance another person's living environment whether they are trying to move, live or work is awesome.  I love my job!!!! I decided to celebrate by joining Active Rain.  I look forward to another great year staging Elizabethtown and the surrounding areas.  Thank you for trusting me with your staging needs!

Urghhhh - it happened!  A couple of weeks ago my hard drive crashed and my database and customer manager tools are gone!!! I know, I know....I should have a backed it up, but I did not. Putting it off and off and then thought I was immun from this happening to me. Luckily I had just printed a hard copy. Well here I am needing to start over again. I am going to see that as an opportunity to do it right this time. I have been searching for a program designed for mortgage originators. The program should not bee to comlicated while allowing me sort and filter and let me stay in touch with my prospects, closed customers, and other contacts. Mortgage Quest keeps coming up in my searches and it has a LOT of tools. Does anyone have experience in using this program and if so, how do you like it?...

We are gearing up for The Parade of Homes 2008 which will run for two consecutive weekends, September 13 & 14th and September 20 & 21.  The home we are most excited about is 29 Anjou, located in The Orchard, an exclusive neighorhood that is home to past and present Parade Homes.  This is truly a one of a kind home and the builder, Butler Homes did a fantastic job.  This home is priced at $399,900 so plan ahead and see this spectacular home in September.  There are several beautiful lots still available in this neighborhood too where you can have your dream home built.  All the lots are large and The Orchard is just 5 minutes from town off of St. John Road.  IF you would like more information, email me!  More photos to come soon!

I came across an article in the March 2008 edition of PC Magazine that lists the Best Free Software.  I have heard of quite a few of them, but some I had not.  A couple of my favorites that were mentioned:Firefox, this is a web browser that I have been using for awhile and I love it because unlike IE, Firefox saves all my user names and passwords and I do not have to retype them every time I check my email or my AR account.   AGV Antivirus, is a free virus protection software.  I have been paying for virus protection for years, but this one is great!  Since installing it about a year ago, I have had no issues and it runs when I tell it to run. Picasa, is  a great photo manager and you can share your photos with the public or just invite friends to view.  It also has a photo editing feat...
