Staging Naked Now

By
Real Estate Agent with eXp Realty

 Well not exactly now -- But here I go, one toe at a time into complete nakedness!!!

 What does it mean?

Well, in the staging world it means... no designations, no credentials, no endorsements, no I N I T I A L S

just me... and my conveniently placed Van Gogh...

think it's for real? hahaha!

Happy April Fools!

I Love my Alphabet Soup!!!

 

And Just in case you are stumbling on to my blog for the first time, because ummm, for some reason it caught your attention... I usually wear black. (See below)

I'm currently using a Monet, but if I keep gaining weight I may resort to the Sistine Chapel!

Also, I'm considering going with the following credential: Thom Scanlon M.O.U.S.E, or the more erudite Thom Scanlon 007! But again with 10 more pounds, it might be Thom Scanlon 747!

Happy Staging!

Julianna;

    Thanks for the Monday morning laugh!  I wondered if there would be any April fool's day fun~should have known it would be from you.  Your wit and spontaneity are contagious!

Cheers!

Julianna, hum, I'm concerned about your calendar. But the good thing is this post will be up tomorrow too. One of my nieces was born on April 1st. Her sister on the second. Now the question is -- who was fooled - the girls, their mom, their dad, the doctors, the producers of the birth control pills which were being used? Just wondering!

Yvonne - Yeah, you got me... joke is actually on me since last night at 11 am when I wrote it the AR calendar said it was the 31st, so I thought I had just 1 hour to beat everyone to the punchline. Haha... Now I am sitting here naked until tuesday evening and it is feeling Oh-so-DRAFTY!!!! BRrrrr.....

Gina - Why me? haha  :-)

Cari - Yes I'm just kidding! I am sure I will add some more letters to the stack here soon.

Tom - too funny! You wear your monet well.

Hi Roberta, I would give up MAID and COOK, but wouldn't mind CHEF it I could wear the hat occasionally and do it justice, the problem is, I am always holding the Starry Starry Night...w

Yvonne... I will take some of your Arizona Sunshine thank you!

Julianna- Starry Starry Night might get heavy after awhile, and since Van Gogh is your artist of choice--here's a little lighter load:

Julianna, Naked staging has not worked well for me.  Linda asked me to help on a staging some time back and even though I am not a stager I thought I would show my support for the Naked Staging philosophy that day.  Linda and a couple of her consultants were already at the home when I showed up.  I went to the front porch and stripped off all of my cloths and then burst through the door proclaiming my support of Staging Naked.

I'm not allowed to go on staging's any more.  I just don't understand, I know Linda is supportive of Naked stagers?

Julianna,

Not sure what to say, how to respond, or even how to get the silly look off my face.  I guess this is no comment on the comment.    I'm just confused.  I don't even know initials like, IMHO, LOL, OMG...

Hi Gary Mc. -- those initials may work for me too!

About the "Naked Stager" designation. A number of stagers on AR pride themselves on never recieving any training, (with organizations like IRIS, HSR, and ASP) and they call themselves naked stagers or say that they are "staging naked"... a few trained stagers even chose to DROP their designations in true bra-burning fashion... and proclaim they were nakie as well...hahaha... so this post is a throw-back to all of that ;-)

Hope that settles some of the confusion. Here in the staging forums it can be the topic for days.

I wear my training designations, and my Van Gogh, proudly.

Hey Julianna staging naked is not so bad, I rather like it.  Hasn't slowed my business or me down a bit!
