Staging Tips

 
Last summer,
 we attempted to sell our house.
 
It didn't sell.
So we're getting ready to try again.
 
I DECLUTTERED the place last year,
so there's not much left.
zippo.
But I got these 2 gals for Christmas,
and they've been keeping me company.
 
 
My realtor's stager sent me diagrams
of everything to change. 
 
Snow White and Cinderella got the axe.
 
You mean, prospective buyers
wouldn't enjoy
Disney Princesses with large heads?
I was already planning on taking them down. :)
 
I was advised,
"Nothing can
dangle."
 
 
Pac Man and my
Fisher Price vignette
has to go.
 
Lady Liberty gets to stay?
I hope buyers don't eat my m&m's.
 
The stager was probably stressed about my décor.
"Why does this woman have
 bright plastic toys all over?"
 
 
Getting ready for the photographer to come today.
"Lemonade on the island
makes people think of summer
and dining outdoors."
 
Harry got home and started helping himself.
I told him there wasn't any sugar in it. 
I should have let him drink it.
 
 
Here's my
rolled towel attempt
in the bathroom.
 
"Towels soften a room."
 
I wonder if she
considers necklaces and
keychains as
danglers?
 
 
I think a Disney fan
would feel right at home here.
 
Now there's
really going to be
nothing left.
 
P.S. We don't know where we're moving,
because if our located on a quiet lane, with country views,
non-Disney, super awesome house doesn't sell,
we're not. :)

Let's Craft!

 
Are you ready for
a Crafty Meet Up?
 
 
This time of year some days
are dull
and
dreary.
 
So let's do something!
 
 
And as long as we're having
one party,
why not do
two?
 
Crafted with ladies
that live around here
and then farther away friends.
 
We made little treat hearts
for our families.
 
 
Glitterized some valentines,
 
  
After trying every glitter glue in town,
I decided I liked nail polish the best to
sparkle up the postcards.
 
 
Then we made some
 
To mail or give.
 
 
Tuck some treats
inside and
send to a loved one.
 
 
 
 
Had a little royal icing demo.
I love to make
these cookies every year.
 
 
Everyone went home
with some sticky hearts
to surprise their loved one.
Put one on their toothbrush, the milk jug,
just in unexpected places.
 
 
These gals are the best.
Didn't get a group pic of the Friday girls :(.
I was busy holding a sweet baby.
 
 
And of course we had treats.
 
 
Thank you Shannon!
We've talked for a couple of years about having
a crafty party,
and finally did it!
