I’m Monica and I was born in Alabama, grew up in Missouri, went to college in Oklahoma (where I married an Okie), and somehow ended up in Memphis, Tennessee. I am living a big life in a small (1,056 sqft) home!
I named my blog, “Staging by M” because I am passionate about staging and designing on a budget and because the first letter in my name is “M”.
In 2010, I went part-time at my day job to pursue my dream of owning my own business doing something that I love – home staging. I trained to become an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP) and launched my business.
I enjoy creating something beautiful out of nothing, reading and writing blogs, continuing to up my photography game, and documenting it all via this blog. My hubby, Ben, and golden retriever, Cali, are the loves of my life. My other passion is having an extraordinary marriage (MarriageYouNeverWanted.com)!
If this is your first time venturing to Staging by M, you should check out some of my most popular posts.

Before starting my first blog in 2003, I remember having to ask my marketing co-workers what a blog was. Little did I know that years later it would become my creative outlet to the world. My hope is that you learn something new, are inspired to create, and have a few laughs along the way!
