In case you are not aware, today is the 39th day of the year. By now most likely your New Year’s plans to quit smoking, lose weight and get along with your brother-in-law  all those wheels have fallen off the wagon. Yeah, me too…

For instance, last month I mentioned that this newsletter was going to be a bi-monthly event. As you can see I was not able to keep my promise. Okay, it was for a good reason: I had several people asking me to keep to the monthly schedule. So here it is! And in regards to the losing weight thing, ahh….never mind.

However there are a few things that are still going as planned:

1 – For the third year in a row, Shades In Place received the Best Of Houzz Award in recognition of our excellent service and commitment to our client’s satisfaction. Check it out

2 – Our list of satisfied clients keeps growing thanks in part to reviews posted online by happy consumers. In case you were not able to share your positive experience after your last project was completed, here’s your chance to help me grow my company. Simply click on this link and write away…(please…please)

3 – I am receiving weekly requests for automated shade projects. As part of the plan for 2015 I will be focusing  more and more on this growing segment of the industry. I am more than happy to chat with you about your needs and educate you on all your options to control your new shades. Don’t hesitate to call, text or email. My cell is 508-904-2108 or email me via

One last thing – in order to avoid lots of shoveling after a snowstorm I decided to live in a condo so that the management company would take care of those things…it’s really convenient for me.

If you want to avoid the extra work and frustration of pulling cords and climbing over sofas and the kitchen sink in order to open and close the shades in your house simply give me a call. I will show you how convenient and affordable automation can be for you and your family.

In the meantime, keep shoveling!
