  1. I need to be inspired

    I have a neighbor that feels grass only needs to be mowed 3 times a summer and has giant weeds. I need inspiration for a privacy wall so my view is on my lovely yard and not his train wreck.

    I've been exploring the idea of design as a new career path (I've dabbled in various types of design but spent most of my career thus far writing and coding web pages). I'd love to attend this important event and learn more from the experts to help me figure out what's next for me!

    Greetings all! I am so excited that this opportunity is available. It's perfect timing! I am a new entrepreneur who is beginning a nonprofit organization related to social impact design called Urban Reading Space. The mission is to create literacy-rich and kid-friendly reading spaces in urban businesses. The goal is to increase reading motivation among urban young through increased access to books and luxury "reading spaces" that inspire through interior design. However, my background is in education and communication. Other than designing reading spaces in my own classroom for the past 5 years, I do not have formal design education or experience. I would love up learn from an expert how to use small spaces efficiently to create organized yet fun book nooks for urban students. I look forward to finding out if I'll be atteding Design Camp! Fingers crossed!

    My boyfriend moved in and now my house is discombobulated with his belongings and my furniture. I need to get my creative juices flowing!

    Design Camp!? Yes, I DO wonder what the next design trends will be, and I am definitely looking to for the right avenues to work my way up in the blogging world! I started "My Colonial Remodel" blog last summer, with the intension of providing an ins/outs-remodel-documentary for all our curious friends & family… BUT… after rediscovering my passion for writing, interior design, and fashion, I realized this whole "remodel then blog about it" thing was something I wanted to pursue as a LIVING. Design Camp would be that perfect step to take me to the next level.
    Thanks for this cool & generous opportunity!

    One can only subscribe to so many magazines and follow so many pages on Facebook… Without talking to, listening to, learning from people who are active in the industry, the rest just becomes rhetoric. Sure, industry news and trending updates are a good reason to read such articles, but it can be repetitive! I believe that two heads are better than one and discussing design experiences and ideas is a better way to learn the industry in its entirety!

  9. Susie says:

    Are you kidding, be able to get the scoop on the newest trends by such creative staff!! Oh me oh my! Plus Seattle I can have my cake and eat it too, learn what's new in design and oh yeah head to my son and daughter in law and maybe put what I learned into practice. My son is in the Navy stationed in Bremmerton, WA and did I mention I have a 2year old grandson there too. Pick Me!

  10. What an amaZing opportunity to learn from such inspiring professionals! It would be a dream to experience!!
