Well this house now sits empty once again... but for a couple of days last week it was MAGICALLY TRANSFORMED (as these photos show).  Last weekend was the culmination of over a years worth of "staging" event preparation. For one weekend a small army of people came together and donated their time, talent and treasure to transform a vacant home into a beautiful show-house... all for the benefit of Brickton Art Center. The event was a resounding success. Everyone is already buzzing about next year... full of ideas and anticipation on how to make it even better. One resident already offered their home as a tour site.Brickton Art Centerdoes amazing things with and for the Arts and is one of the Crown Jewels that helps make Park Ridge, Illinois such a desirable community to live in. Brickton ...

The importance and willingness to give back is basic to what the group of stagers in Stage it Forward are all about. Its so basic, that in the group's short description here on Active Rain, the words "share" or "sharing" is used in 3 separate places.For me however, Stage It Forward is more than just helping other stagers grow their businesses... for me, Stage It Forward meant using my time, talent and treasure to benefit my community.  So at Real Estaging, our current Stage It Forward effort centers around the creation of a spectacular community wide fund raising event for Brickton Art Center... a WONDERFUL not-for profit organization (grounded in outreach) in Park Ridge Illinois.This year we helped re-invent and invigorate Brickton's Artistic Living event by refining it and adding a To...

I know I talk a lot about staging. But my REAL passion is advertising and marketing. I LOVE to find new ways to break through the typical "advertising noise" and connect with people. (Staging just happens to be an amazing marketing tool that does this too... that is why I am so adamant about it.)Anyway, a few years back we decide to divert some of our advertising dollars away from print and find a ways to connect to our clients and potential clients in more creative and effectiveways. So what did we do? We throw a party!Well, actually we always had a personal holiday party... we just decided to give it over to our company.We named the party "Tween the Holidays" so that ALL know they are welcome. (We don't specify exactly which holidays it is ‘tween. If you think about it... we could be ...
