I have posted in the past regarding the help offered by We Do Feet, an organization in Hudson which serves the entire St. Croix Valley area in Wisconsin and Minnesota. If you have furniture or appliances you wish to donate to this worthy organization, they have a new phone number: 715-781-0622.
You will find more information on the group and what items they accept for donation. They are able to pick up larger items, or you can arrange a time to drop them by the warehouse yourself. Aside from furniture and appliances, cash donations and donations of gently used or new mattress pads and sheet sets/bedding are also greatly needed. These smaller items can be dropped by Trinity Lutheran Church (either campus) in Hudson during their regular office or service hours.
Thanks to all of you who have donated furniture in the past; I know several of my clients have given items they no longer needed after our redecorating projects! Please pass this information on to friends and family you know who may have items they wish to donate. All the donations are so appreciated – especially by those in our area who receive the assistance.
I have been asked to share my design expertise with you, by teaching several community education classes in the Baldwin, WI, area! I’m very excited about this opportunity, and I hope you will join me for the following classes in February 2010:
Tuesday, February 9, 7-8 pm: Room Rescue
* This class will allow a limited number of participants, as I will lead a discussion regarding YOUR problem rooms! Bring your photos, floor plans, dimensions, and other information, and we will work through your design dilemmas.
Tuesday, February 16, 7-8 pm: Color Trends 2010
* I will present the color, pattern and design trends for the upcoming year. You will see paint samples, fabric swatches, room photos and more, and learn how to incorporate these trends into your home without spending a fortune on redecorating.
Tuesday, February 23, 7-8 pm: Window Treatments 101
* I will present the different types of window treatment products available, both hard and soft treatments, as well as offer suggestions on where they will best be used. Participants are encouraged to bring photos of their problem windows!
The cost for each class is $10, or you can take all 3 for $25. Please register early, as the space is limited. Email the community education director for more information or to register: firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see you there – it’s sure to be a fun month, and will get you ready for your spring home decor projects!
If you have an idea for a future class, please leave me a comment here. I love to teach others about good design, and would be happy to teach other courses if you are interested! Let me know what you want to know…
I want to hear from YOU! What is your biggest headache when it comes to your home or place of business? Is it clutter? Or paint colors? Or trying to accessorize? If money were no object, what project would you hire a designer to help you tackle? Post your comments here; I’d love to hear from you!
