Sheron Cardin's Input...: My 15 minutes of fame here in AR

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.

My 15 minutes of fame here in AR

Everywhere I go, I am being showered with golden rain drops here in AR. I feel like I am in the middle of my 15 minutes of fame with my featured gold star in Eco-All-Stars-The Green Scene

To continue to do my part in The Green Scene, I am inviting all my associate stagers, realtor's, mortgage lenders, appraiser's, and all AR members and visitors, over to this group and read up on all the tips and hints that will help you turn up the volume on your green awareness. If each of you could do just one more thing to support our planet, I might feel more worthy of the award.

JaneAnne is working hard to promote Eco Friendly real estate. Let's help her help you and I and get on over there to  read, post, and comment. 

Thank you JaneAnne and all the ECO-ALL-STARS for all that you are doing for us! 

Namaste

Believe it or not I didn't even know the green scene group existed.  I've been absent from AR for a few months and dropped most of the groups for a localism focus.  I've very interested in the eco movement and look forward to learning from the group.

Thanks..

Then this post has been worthwhile Keith - I look forward to getting to know you in the rain. I am so un-green yet not purple...I am more like a celery green and I got a gold star!

I am so Glad to see this topic introduced to the world of staging.  I was on a job site with a designer yesterday and the following issue came up...We have a client with pristine yet dated in color carpet.  The installer included hauling the carpet away.  We asked it there was an option for donating the carpet so that it can be re-used.  We will be removing approximately 700 square feet and had to send that to a landfill...any thoughts?

 Thanks

You could put it on Craigs list and offer it free. Someone could put it to good use. Thanks for asking. I hope everyone tries to give it away first.

Isn't that something? Al Gore did that to me. I have lived carelessly all my life...it was the American way =0

Hey Maureen - thank you...doing my best. Who would you rather see in Gore's place? I am just curious.

Marilynn - I didn't know that the Habitat for Humanity took used goods. Do they pick up?

Yes Craig - you bring up a good point! My 15 minutes of fame could be something like Sanjaya is experiencing...humiliation!

Thanks for stopping by Craig.

Oh my god Sanjaya... LOOKS and a HUGE HEART, but needs to take a few singing lessons.

He is the TEFLON IDOL... that is for sure.

Mean GREEN recycling machine...but you're nice too.  I'll have you know that I have two large recycling bins in my alley and we recycle all we can here.  My 11 yr. old daughter is HUGELY aware of the plight of the POLAR BEARS these days and she's on board to save our planet
Posted by Karen Otto, Plano Home Staging, Dallas Home Staging, www.homes (Home Star Staging) over 12 years ago
Hey Karen, my 11 yr. old granddaughter is the same way. Their generation will grow up conserving and recycling as a way of life. The American Way will be changed forever because of what is happening now in their childhood. Hope it is not too late. Thank you for your contribution!

WHAAATT?? You have a granddaughter my daughter's age - I don't believe it!

Posted by Karen Otto, Plano Home Staging, Dallas Home Staging, www.homes (Home Star Staging) over 12 years ago

Have you tried Freecycle.com.

 I havn't used it but heard that you can offer any items for free.  Once you have offered, you can join and become eligible to receive free stuff others are offering.  Thisa is available to different extents in different areas.

Great to hear some Realtors care about this!!

Posted by Craig Schiller over 12 years ago

Craig - can you throw in the red nose while your at it???

Karen - I know, I can't believe it either!

Guy - I have tried to use it and got frustrated. I don't remember why but will check it out again, thanks. How do you like your Hybrid?  

Posted by Sheron Cardin, ARTIST - A Home Stager/Sellers Best Friend! (California Moods Inc) over 12 years ago

Hi Sheron - Who would I like to see instead of Al Gore, SANJAYA (he is definitely taking over the world)!!

Seriously, it's not a matter of one person telling us all what to do. (Whether it be Al, Sanjaya, or anyone else).  There are plenty of people other than Mr. Gore who are environmentally aware.  Again, it is not a personal attack on Al Gore.  I just don't think he practices what he preaches.  I believe it is everyone's collective responsibility to keep their part of the earth clean!  and Sheron, good for you.  It sounds like you are definitely doing your part out in CA.

Who knows?  Sheron, Maybe you will take over Al's job!!!!

 

Posted by Maureen Graziano (Third Eye Home Staging) over 12 years ago
Al Gore better get on the stick if he want to make a good impression on everyone then, huh! And I don't know what we are going to do about Sanjaya...why should we even know his name??? I am waiting for my red nose from Craig...or maybe I should have him send me a green one...LOL
Posted by Sheron Cardin, ARTIST - A Home Stager/Sellers Best Friend! (California Moods Inc) over 12 years ago

Wow, you get up early!!! Anyway, I just looked at some of the other comments on this post, and I'm with Karen, I can't believe you have an 11 year old granddaughter!  I hope I will be as full of energy (and activism) as you when I have grandchildren.

You are setting a great example for your granddaughter, and I'm sure she is very proud of you.

P.S. - Does she have a crush on Sanjaya like all the other tweens?

Thank you Maureen...as I sit in front of my PC most of the time. And as far as American Idol, Haley likes Haley for obvious reasons. So vote for Haley to keep her in the competition for awhile longer. Ms. Doolittle too, for me.
Posted by Sheron Cardin, ARTIST - A Home Stager/Sellers Best Friend! (California Moods Inc) over 12 years ago
Ahhhhhh, Haley got voted off AI last night. Common guys...let's all hear it now...ahhhhhhh.
