The ABCs of TWEAK services 2009

Time to review your ABCs!
Add value.
Be inspired.
Celebrate life.

Because it is about you.

Sometimes we get so overwhelmed with life and its responsibilities that we forget to look around us and see how great things really are. Sometimes we just don't know how to communicate. Sometimes it's just easier to make excuses.

TWEAK offers hourly styling services designed to help people live better by making simple changes to their homes. For some, it's rearranging furniture. Some require fresh paint. Some just need new table linens.

Now, more than ever, you need to see how wonderful your home is. It is filled with objects and memories that reflect your life. You need to rediscover what you already have. See it in a new light or with a new approach.

And stop with the excuses! "Someday when I buy a home", "When the economy turns around"
NOOOO!!! It's all about living better now-today- in the moment.

I've been told that people won't decorate an apartment because they don't own it. Well, the structure may belong to the landlord but it is your home. Do you realize that for the price of a nice dinner out on the town you could install a new faucet and repaint a room? Seems like a fair price. After all, you were just going to eat the money.

My wish for 2009 is that people learn their ABCs.

Add value to your home by maintaining it. Shop your home and see if there are things hidden away that you could use today.

Be inspired by what you already own. Perhaps if you simply switch out the photos in the frames you may actually look at them the next time you pass them by. Look inside your cabinets for opportunities. Perhaps those dried legumes on the top shelf could be used as an alternative ground cover to moss.

Celebrate life. Enough with the gloom! All that matters is if you are healthy and happy. Instead of bemoaning lost wealth turn this time into an opportunity to spend quality time with friends. Invite them over for a potluck dinner instead of dining out.
