I know it has been quite awhile since I've sent you a newsletter, but there is a good reason. I've been blogging instead of sending newsletters the last few months, but I'm not really sure if it is catching on so in addition to the blog, I have decided to start these newsletters again. You will be able to find the same content on both so if you are not able to read the blog, you won't miss any of the important content.
If you are interested in reading the blog, you can sign up to receive emails to let you know each time I write an article.  You can go directly to www.madellas.blogspot.com and you will find the button to sign up for email alerts.
The blog is meant to be an interactive forum so if you are so inclined, leave a comment after the articles and let me know what you think.

Design your space class is back!
I am teaching another Design Your Space class on May 22nd from 10:00-12:00 at the Glenwood Community Center.  This is a great opportunity to get some help on 1 room in your house and see some solutions for other students in the class.  The cost is $60.  If you are interested, you can register through Howard County Parks and Recreation.  It is class number RP3409.701 and called Design Your Space.

Design your own roller shade
I am so excited about these new roller shades by Comfortex!  If you are looking for an inexpensive custom option for your windows, this product is awesome!  You can put any picture you can think of on a roller shade or roman shade.  If you aren't real creative, they have some stock designs available and more coming next month.  You can play with the stock designs available on the Persona website and print out your design.

Comfortex Persona shades just entered into a licensing agreement with Major League Baseball (and yes, I know the picture is of a football player) to gain access to their stock photos for use on these roller shades and roman shades.  What a great idea for a kids room to have a picture of a favorite player or stadium on their windows!  The possibilities with this product are endless.  If you can take a picture and have access to email, you can design your very own shade.  I'd love to hear your feedback, how would you use this product?

If you are interested in these shades email me at lbower@madelladecor.com
If you would like to see more before and after work, you can check out some designs on Madella's Decorating Facebook page
