New referral program

Friends, I can't thank you all enough for the words of encouragement between my announcement last week and the debut of my portfolio pictures. You've all been so awesome!

I want to make a special offer to you, my readers and closest circle of supporters. I know that probably only a handful of you are at a point where you're ready to bring in a decorator for a full-room project (and if you are, give me a holler!). But I'm sure many of you know someone else who is ready, who maybe has been saving up for a while to do something but doesn't know where to start.

So I'm introducing a referral program! If you refer a friend or family member who books me for an e-decorating package (starting at the Express level) or two or more hours of local design work, I'll send you a $15 Starbucks gift card. Free money, just for helping me connect with great clients. All they have to do is get me your name and email when they purchase. Then I'll get in touch with you for your address and pop a card in the mail to you.

And you don't have to stop at one friend - how about your mom, aunt, brother-in-law's bachelor pad, or your sorority sis? Yep, I'll send you a card for each referral after purchase!

Why offer an program like this? Because I know that you know great people who "get it" and who want great design. And because I'd rather shell out a little dough to my awesome readers than pay for an ad space somewhere that might not attract anyone. And Starbucks because, well, I am a Seattle girl after all...
