Graduation Day



Today was the day. I graduated.

 I've had a lot of emails from readers about my education.  I was always one of those people who said, "I wish I had studied Interior Design".   I just never did anything about it.  But 3 years ago I decided it was now or never and I started school to follow my passion.  I never thought this day would come.  Since I have started school I got married, moved 4 times to 4 different states and had a baby.  However, it has all been worth it. 

As you all know I had my portfolio event last week.  It was fun to put together some boards that really reflected my own design style.  I hope you don't look at it with too much of a critical eye. Of course they are not perfect but I just thought you might want to see what I've been working on.  

















We also had to put together a book with all of our projects in it.  



Now that school is over I'm putting together the business plan.  I have been working hard on fine tuning details. Hopefully there will be some of you out there that are interested in transforming your homes.  I can't wait!

  11. Congrats on graduating! Your project and portfolio look great, especially your renderings. Did you have any drawing/rendering classes in school or are you just naturally talented in that area? That was one thing missing from my design program that I wish we had!
