Sheron Cardin's Input...

I have been an interior designer for over 27 years and I have always taught my clients the principles I used while decorating their home so they may enjoy decorating too. The home staging trend in residential real estate is a great way to reach more people every day and what I enjoy the most is they are learning the basics of good design through staging. It is my dream for every person to know the joy and pride of living in a decorated home.

waveThere are so many groups in Active Rain now it is overwhelming!

I am still learning after 1 1/2 years as a member. I meme'd one of my favorite bloggers Deborah Pearce and what did I find? She posted her meme to a Travel Group. What??? I did not know we had a travel group! How perfect for me, I can write about my travels.

If you are new to AR, it must seem staggering.  Here is a good way to start growing your AR family:

  • Look at the end of the post you enjoyed and see where the blogger posted their post. You will be amazed!
  • Also, visit your favorite bloggers posts and click on their profile link under their photo. On the left is a list of groups that they belong to. Visit those groups and see if you want to belong to that group.
  • Click on Join Group and introduce yourself in a post

Awhile back I posted a list of all the groups for Home Stagers for stagers to share with other professional stagers, real estate agents, and curious home sellers. You wouldn't think we would need so many...actually, being who we are, we did de-clutter them at one point. 


When you find someone that you resonate with, follow their footprints, see where they post and grow your community.

Bed of Healing Herbs Part 1
