Entry #3608, August 15, 2014
Every year I look back from the August 15th of the previous year to the current one and am amazed by the wonderful blessings that have been bestowed upon me! On August 15, 2009 Stagetecture was a “no-name” blog with a place to collect my home staging and organizing ideas. 5 years later, and 3500+ posts later, Stagetecture is visited by hundreds of thousands of readers and I couldn’t have done it without you, my family, my colleagues, and the wonderful friends that touch me daily in all of my social media communities.
Stagetecture’s 5th Anniversary & Past Year Highlights!
What’s next for Stagetecture? More original food photography and more great recipes!
Here’s a quick recap of the biggest and most memorable highlights of the last year:
Sub-Zero/Wolf – New Generation Media Event
I was invited to Madison, Wisconsin once again to witness the unveiling of the biggest rollout of new technology and new appliances for the Sub-Zero/Wolf brand.
Lamps Plus Contributor – ‘Style Illuminated’ Blog – October 2013
It was a joy to join the Lamps Plus blog as one of their contributors to the stylish design blog. My Lamps Plus features you can see here.
Stagetecture was also nominated for Best Home Design Blog on Lamps Plus and came in 5th place 🙂
In August I was invited to Los Angeles, California for Modenus’ BlogTour. See all of the design BlogTour LA highlights here.
The Decluttered Home blog – I become their “Home Staging” expert
Presented by Uncle Bob’s Storage, I already had enjoyed contributing to the Get Storganized blog. I was thrilled to be featured on the Decluttered Home blog where I now write a monthly feature, and am featured in home staging videos and provide valuable information in their brochures that are handed out at local Uncle Bob’s Self Storage facilities.
I join the Interior Design Community Moderator on Google+ as the Blogging Expert
Kitchen Bath Industry Show – Las Vegas, Nevada
Along with the Interior Designer community moderators I went to Las Vegas! It was my first time attending KBIS – it was great to meet and interview kitchen and bath brands like Poggenpohl, Top Knobs, Moen, Brizo and more!
Tile of Spain Architectural Trip – Valencia & Madrid, Spain
My first time traveling internationally and was the time of a lifetime. I traveled with The Tile of Spain to visit the Cevisama Tile Show, visit Spanish tile manufacturer factories and saw these beautiful historical architectural cities. To see all of the Tile of Spain highlights, visit here.
#BlogHerFood – Miami, Florida
I attended my first food blogging conference! It was a treat to meet other foodies, attend the brand sponsored events … and I won a KitchenAid Mixer 🙂 Can’t wait in the future months to collaborate with KitchenAid again in Autumn 2014 🙂
Invited to Streamsong Resort in Central Florida
This was an amazing trip in which me and 3 other architectural journalists met Alberto Alfonso, Architect and witnessed the grandeur of this tucked away masterful resort. See the Streamsong Resort highlights here on Freshome.
I’m invited to #Cersaie – Tile and Bathroom Furnishings Show in Bologna, Italy – Sep 22-26
I can’t wait to take you along with me as I experience another great international tile show and share all of the sights and design experiences from Bologna this fall.
What’s coming up for Stagetecture in “her” 5th year? My imagination can’t even fathom it!
I’m excited for:
New opportunities, collaborations with brands, following my passion of food blogging and photography and new home ideas, a “new look” for Stagetecture’s website, and bringing you more home life solutions.
-Thank you everyone for making Stagetecture what it is today!
