Authentic, Elegant, The House is You.

Hi again everyone!

Have you ever wished there were little features of your house that looked, or functioned differently.

“I wish the yard didn’t drain back to the garage”

“I wish the porch overhang was supported better so it didn’t sag in the middle”

“I hate the way the siding looks on that part of the house”

“Why does our house look so much worse than the neighbors?  It’s like it just doesn’t fit the neighborhood”

Have you ever had a thought run through your head that sounded something like that?  You probably missed something when you built/designed your house.  Or worse yet, has THIS happened to you?

That is where my referral for today would have come in to help.  If you have, or could find yourself in this situation, I would encourage you to get in touch with Dan, the owner of East Arbor Architecture.  He is out of Mid-Michigan and Working with an architect that appreciates little details will help you be, and ultimately stay satisfied with your hosue.  Oh, and P.S. Dan LOVES older houses, and older buildings.  Once you meet him you’ll see why his work is ‘Authentic, Elegant, East Arbor.’

An Image you Couldn’t Imagine

Today I want to talk about a business woman with an eye for well…everything. Shelley Davis Mielock is the owner of Mieshel Image Consulting, which as the name suggests is an image consulting business which Shelley runs out of my favorite Mid-Michigan metropolis: Lansing!

Shelley not only can help someone with the way they present themselves from a fashion standpoint (a professional suit for a business person for example), but also focuses alot on peoples behaviors, and communication styles as well.  She gives public lectures on various topics as well as private coaching where she can work one on one with someone.

If you are a professional, businessperson, male or female you could benefit from meeting with Shelley.   Check out Mieshel Image Consulting online at:



Not a Dictatorship?

Happy Monday Everyone! Hopefull you are in the start of a productive AND short week, before a filling day of being thankful. My Monday has been way too full, so you are getting this update a little late…Sorry!

My Referral for today is Hart-Davidson Design. Located in Holt MI, Hart-Davidson Designs will help you decide what to do with any home design project. It could be as big and complicated as a huge funky commercial space with themes and variations, or as simple as deciding what color should you paint the spare bedroom.

The best part about their process is that You (yes you) actually get a say in how things will turn out! They work WITH you to design your space. They don’t just swoop in, take over, and leave, with you in the background looking sad and lost.

They can be found online at Hart-Davidson Designs

Leslie (the owner) is also very passionate about educating people about design and freely sharing her expertise through community seminars, and educational talks at home shows. Be sure to look (on their web page) where they are heading next!

They are great and they are my referral for today! Go forth and design!
