Selling this Year? HOMESTAGING…. If you are thinking of selling your home this year, perhaps having a home stager may be an option? If you think that is too expensive, I’d like to share a portion of this article with you.
3. Pick up a couple of planters and a new welcome mat for your front porch
Inside this issue:
7. Freshen things up with flowers and fruit. Ms. Stoker says her team always puts an orchid or greenery in every bathroom and puts a bowl of fruit – lemons, limes, oranges – in the kitchen.
To read the full article, please check out the link at the end of this excerpt. Here are some quick-and-dirty ways to help you stage your home on a dime:
1. Remove 20 to 50 per cent of furniture and accessories in each room
2. Stick to neutral paint colours on the wall, and add a fresh coat of bright white paint to the baseboards
3. Clean all windows and scrub all floors
4. Buy a fresh set of crisp, clean bedding and white fluffy towels for the bathroom
5. Edit your art. If your walls are plastered with wedding or baby photos, go out and buy a couple of works that are a bit more mainstream.
6. Ditch the shoe racks, small book cases or storage pieces. These will give the buyer the impression that space is tight.

8. Don’t use air fresheners to mask the small of tobacco, dirty laundry, cats or last week’s leftovers. Try using a lemon-scented cleaner, says Ms. Bourne, to help remove unwanted odours.

April is Cancer Month
CANCERS SO LIMITED
It can't shut out memories
(Version submitted by Kristen Homandberg, Pipestone Minnesota.)
It can't silence courage It can't invade the soul It can't reduce eternal life
It can't cripple love It can't shatter hope
Read it… Write it… Live it...
It can't quench the Spirits
It can't corrode faith It can't eat away peace
It can't lessen the power of the resurrection
It can't destroy confidence
Most of us know someone that has been affected by this terrible disease. Take a moment this month to help the cause. Every little bit helps to conquer cancer.
It can't kill friendship

They’ll think it’s dessert!! Even though April Fool’s Day is over for another year, keep this recipe in mind! Sounds Delicious for any suppertime prank!
“April Fool’s Day” - Meatloaf CUP-CAKES! Prepare your favorite meatloaf recipe as usual, but, before baking, divide the mixture into muffin tins and pat the meatloaves flat. HAVE FUN WITH MEALTIME! The kids will LOVE it! 1. Bake as usual, but shorten the cooking time (these thinner meatloaves won't take nearly as long to cook).
2. While the meatloaf is in the oven, make a batch of mashed potatoes; add a little extra milk and whip with an electric beater until they are fluffy and spreadable. 3. When the meatloaves are done, invert them onto a round plate. 4. Cover the meat with a thick, even layer of mashed potatoes.
5. Finish frosting the "cupcakes" with the remaining potatoes. Optional: Squeeze a little ketchup into the centre of the cupcake and garnish with halved cherry tomatoes to look like cherries. "Happy April Fools' Day!" www.allrecipes.com
