    I would love to go to Design Camp, because I have just finished my first year as a Kitchen and Bath Showroom Salesperson for Mid-City Supply, and my location gets alot of Chicago customers who wish to redesign their kitchen and baths on Lake Michigan, and I have never had any true design experience. I would be honored to come back to my showroom with new talents learned from the BEST!

    I recently purchased a old home that has so much character that having the opportunity to go to design school would really help me with this project, being a single mother of twin boys, and also starting a business tends to make time an issue, and I find myself switching directions after I have started a project, plus, my one son is also a future designer and is always on me with moving along quicker in the house projects….would love to win this opportunity!!

    I've always had a passion for interior design, and I'd love to go to design camp to see if I've got what it takes! I'd love the learning opportunities and I would thrive surrounded by all that creativity! Do I have the taste and skills? I hope so!

    As a sports media professional, it'd be cool to immerse myself into a different world for a couple days. I enjoy home design at a basic level and would be interested to learn more from the pros.

    I'm super passionate about design and would love the opportunity to learn from the professionals and kick start my creativity!

  8. Thank you for such an amazing opportunity! I would love to go to Design Camp because I am a design/DIY blogger and an interior design student who is trying to absorb every bit of knowledge that I can about the world of design… and figure out where within it I fit! :)

    I'd love to go to Seattle Design Camp to learn how to start my own interior design blog!

    I would love to attend Design Camp to get back into Interior Design. I was designing Kitchens and Baths about 5 years go until the economy got really bad. I have my degree and would love to use it again! Plus, I was never able to go to summer camp as a kid-this would replace that experience for me! Keeping my fingers crossed!
