Years ago a friend challenged me to join Toastmasters to learn how to speak in public. I was horrified, but knew if I said no, he would never let me forget it. He’s now a Vice President of a national insurance company and I get to speak to local groups about stuff that makes me happy!

I’ve done presentations at Mid-Continent Public Library for over 15 years. Check out their website for upcoming classes. I’ve also done presentations for our local ReStore, Central Exchange, Realtors’ groups, and a variety of other community groups.

Some presentations I’ve done are listed below:

  • Home: Organizing with Style, Creative Decorating for Small Spaces, Create an Outdoor Living Space, Create a Focal Wall, Decorate for Spring or Fall, Get Your Home Ready for Sale, Interior Design Trends, Kitchen Trends, Paint with Flair, Remodel a bathroom, Selling Your House: Renovations that Add Value, Tablescapes: Entertaining with Ease, Decorating for the Holidays, Create a Haven-Finding Beauty & Serenity in Your Home
  • Thrifting: Repurposing Your Thrift Store and Garage Sale Finds, Decorate with Thrift Store and Flea Market Finds, Save Money by Shopping Thrift Store & Garage Sales,
  • Fashion: Create a New Wardrobe on a Budget, Building a Capsule Wardrobe, Organizing Your Closet, How to Pack for Vacation,
  • Decluttering: Decluttering: Finding Ways to Let Go, Minimalism-What Is It and How Can It Enhance Your Life? Ready to Downsize?

I am glad I attended your class at the North Oak library to hear your introduction to a very intense need in our community. Your class has planted a seed for me to achieve liberation from four years of accumulation following the passing of three loved ones in three years.

Thank you for presenting Decorating with Thrift Store and Flea Market Finds at Red Bridge this weekend. Our customers left great reviews and we hope to have you out again soon.

I wanted to comment on the classes you presented at North Oak Library. I love both classes and have put to use several of the tips on using containers and baskets for storage. I moved a giant wreath a friend made for me to another wall in the living room for the focal point you spoke about and had several compliments on it even though it has been in the room on the other wall and they have been here previously. I liked your idea of accessories for color and seasonal changes. The classes were great and a real inspiration for me!!
