How To Chi in Some Energy With Feng Shui . . .

I have been studying Feng Shui  lately – I would like to add this service to my Home & Office Concierge Service. I suffer from depression, I am looking for a more holistic way to treat it and I read an article in a wellness center over the summer about how Feng Shui has been found to help with people suffering from depression . . . I was intrigued.

Cleaning and Organizing for people in their homes and offices for over 20 years, I do understand the concept of placement – and in other blogs I have written about how a home, office, and/or space has its own “heartbeat”. So, I am beginning to understand placement along with symbols to energize an area. I’m getting there!

If you would like to work with me in this very infantile stage of my learning the powers of Feng Shui – please reach out to me (860)961.6824 (leave me a message that you’re interested in FENG SHUI and I’ll get back to you), we can learn together – it will be very affordable to start out at this stage of the process in  developing an outline for this service.

*Side Note – I chose this video not only because Nancy is simple in her explanation of the process – but I love Olivia Newton-John . . . Who doesn’t right? Enjoy . . . . . . . .

What’s on your reading list?

 

oprah-book-clubOprah’s Book Club, has chosen a new book for her reading list ~

I have been reading Glennons’ blog for a while. She writes with such deep-cut honesty, she puts herself out there for all to tear apart, take away, and use what they need or what they need to hear for the first time in their lives!

I am so happy for Glennon and I’m in awe in her bravery, to bring this book to life – The book that Oprah has chosen is:

book-1

Glennon has made this statement before in her blogs – “Rock bottom is the best place on Earth – It’s a place of new beginnings” – I couldn’t agree more, I have been at rock bottom many times in my life, and it has been a place where I have found clarity … and the strength to tie a knot and hang on!

I cannot wait to dive into this book – I will be posting other books in the coming months to add to your reading list. If you have a favorite inspiring book, and would like to share it here or find me on social media, I would love to hear from you.

D * I * Y Projects …

I used FolkArt Metallic Cooper Acrylic Paint 20160903_112839 from Micheal’s Craft Store, here is the link -> http://www.michaels.com/ – The paint is fool-proof, you can’t mess it up! I only painted the top of the mirrors, I left the sides of the mirrors black to accent the black wrought iron head board I have in the bedroom.

So, for about $6.00 and an hour of work, I transformed two pieces of decor to update the design in my bedroom – money well spent!

Well, I’m not done yet … so back to work – I will post pics of my next D*I*Y project.

What projects are you working on? Please share in the comments below.

D * I * Y ~ Home Staging Tips

love the pop of orange

 

You decided to put your home on the market – You don’t have thousands of dollars to spend.

The good news, there are several things you can do to spruce up your house without spending a ton of money!

First impressions – You only have a few seconds to make a great impression. Let it start before they even walk in the front door. Creating curb appeal is the key for getting potential buyers not to just drive by, but want to step inside.

Simply Curb Appeal Tips:

  • Cut the grass
  • Trim the bushes
  • Get rid of debris and dead branches
  • Plant some flowers
  • Replace the mailbox
  • Paint the front door
  • New door mats
  • Wash the siding or stucco

There is no rule about how much you should expect to spend getting your home ready to sell, but investing a few thousand dollars can potentially increase your sale price – not to mention selling your house quickly!

Here are a few more frugal ways to stage your home for sale:

  • Remove all clutter– clear out clutter, personal photos, knick-knacks that look dated and all junk. Clearing out clutter creates more space – it makes your home look bigger and younger.
  • Clean, Clean, Clean – get rid of all cobwebs, wash all windows, scrub all tile grout, clean and polish furniture that will be used to stage the home. A little ‘elbow grease’ goes a long way!
  • Edit your furniture – If your rooms are crowded with large and unattractive furniture, put it in storage. Remember you want to create space by making the house look bigger and younger!
  • Paint – In some cases, you would be wise to paint both the inside and outside of the home, use neutral colors. if your kitchen cabinets look old and dated, paint them!
  • Clean or replace light fixtures and cabinet hardware – This small, inexpensive task adds so much appeal and value to a room!
  • If you can afford it, replace old carpeting – The worst, is when you go into a home for a showing and you can smell some funky odor, and most of the time it comes from the old carpeting. If your home has hardwood floors underneath – let them shine, by refinishing them.
  • Don’t forget the small stuff – New matching towels, accent pillows and throws, fresh flowers throughout the home.
  • Make sure every room has Function & Purpose!
