Founder & Principal
I started my company because of my passion to give people the WOW factor, the love for creating, designing, decorating, to create something that is mine and help people at the same time. Hi, I am Mattie Sheppard and welcome to my page. I have been staging and decluttering for over 13 years in various capacities. I wanted to show women over 50 that they too can still follow their dreams.
