I've always wanted to start my own business. To be a creative and do what I love to pay the bills. I have nothing but amazing things to say about my amazing day job! I work for a company that is fully a part of American manufactured design. With rad business ethics and a killer aesthetic - this is where I want to be. But as an Aquarius I'm constantly dreaming. Dreaming of being an Interior Designer which I am slowly but surely making happen...dreaming of starting a vintage store which I'm slowly but surely making happen (WOOHOO)...dreaming of producing my own decorative designs...dreaming of traveling...dreaming of having my own store front by the time I'm 30... and UBER dreaming of going to the Ace Camp taught by the uber talented blogger Erin Loechner, the voice behind one of my favorite blogs, Design For Mankind.
This camp focuses on wrangling your career aspirations and working towards a plan to bring them to fruition.
It is this June and financially it's going to be tight to come up with the $359 needed to attend. I want to make this happen - but while investing in starting a business doesn't leave funds for extra activities. Even if they are the activities that help move a girl along her chosen path. But - invest in one's future, yes? It's important.
So I'm rallying for support. I need to raise the $359 to go take part in this amazing opportunity. And I will be fully honest and say I could use all of the help I can get. My new vintage clothing and home goods shop, HELLOvintage opens in May. But if you are local I am more than happy to set up personal shopping experiences (and tea and cookies) for anyone in the area.
For those out of the Portland area I the men's and ladies' clothing up on my Flickr NOW (and more and more all the time)! If you would like information on a specific item please contact me and I will give you measurements, price and shipping costs.
Your purchases will go towards me attending the Ace Camp this June (and help me follow my dreams).
I truly appreciate all of the support received from family, friends and bloggers. This is an exciting time and I am thrilled to share it with you.
