Spotlight on Business - Clever Creations

Clever Creations is a decorating service offering hourly consultations to whole house renovations. Services include color selections, accessorizing, staging, upholstery, specialty paint finishes, organizing.

Nancy Reis, owner of Clever Creations is a resident here at Carolina Beach. When I decided to start my decorating business part time in Charlotte in 1995, I decided to do it my way. I was unimpressed at the intimidating personalities of many decorators and the need to feel that you have to spend a lot of money to get the satisfying look a client desires for their home. Many of my clients have never used a decorator before because they felt it was too costly and intimidating to them. Once we have our initial phone conversation, they realize that many times a few hours of consultation can get them started in the right direction.

I focus on the overall look that a client wants to achieve by first observing what they currently have in their home, change things around a bit, then add items to enhance what they already have it their home. I also offer organizing service including assisting clients with decluttering areas of their home or office. I was so astonished when a husband of a client called me and thanked me for saving him $400,000! He called to say that after I rearranged his furniture, accessories, and organized his living and dining room, his wife no longer wanted to move to a new house. She spends all her time in the living room and loves it. All it cost him was a few hours of consultation and work….now that’s a bargain!

Searching for a special gift for a child, or perhaps an animal lover, on your holiday list? The North Carolina Aquariums' new Adopt-An-Animal program helps you give a thoughtful present sure to make them smile.

The recently launched Adopt-An-Animal program offers a year-long adoption of popular Aquarium animals - alligators, otters, sea horses, sea turtles and sharks. Your tax-deductible contribution helps the Aquariums feed, care for and exhibit these animals.

When you choose to Adopt-An-Animal, you receive an adoption kit featuring an official certificate of adoption, an animal fact card with photos, and specialized window decals. Your name will also be listed on the Aquariums' website along with other adoption supporters. The most popular kits, available for $45, also come with a cuddly plush animal outfitted with its own hooded sweatshirt.

Additionally, those making an adoption can rest assured their contribution will be used effectively. The North Carolina Aquarium Society was recently ranked among the top zoo and aquarium non-profits in the nation and awarded a four-star rating for sound fiscal management by the online, nonprofit watch group Charity Navigator. The North Carolina Aquarium Society is the support organization for the state's three aquariums.
