Like many of you, I use the “do not disturb” setting on my phone & iPad. A girl’s gotta get some beauty sleep, you know? So when I woke up Tuesday morning to my Twitter notifications, I was pretty excited.
But was it too good to be true?
Only a week earlier we received an email at the shop about Design Camp. The email described the two-day opportunity to learn and network with some of the most respected names in design business; in all areas of the business. I mentioned to Dana that I thought it could be something good for us to do. Of course Money Lady responds with the “We’ll have to look at the budget” answer that she’s so good at. (That damn voice of reason; must we all have one??) Well it just so happened Dana was leaving the next morning for Mexico so we wouldn’t be able to go over it until she got back. I know, world smallest violin playing for Dana: Mexico, while we were freezing back here. I’ll give her this; she deserved it and yes, she had a blast. I’m thankful she came back.
Anyhoo, I saw on Twitter that Lisa Mende was giving away two free tickets on her blog Lisa Mende Design to attend this event. I thought what the heck, what do I have to lose? So I commented about one of the many speakers I’d be interested most in hearing. Well, let me just say, my luck is starting out on a high note in 2013, because I won the opportunity! I must admit, my first thought was I never win anything, it’s gotta be too good to be true. So I just kinda sat on it awhile until I got the message asking for all my details. So ladies and gents-
I’M GOING TO DESIGN CAMP! In Atlanta. At the end of the month. It’s a whirlwind, clearing schedules and making plans, but I’m so sure this is going to be such a worthwhile event! And luckily the budget thing didn’t have to play a big part in the decision. I can’t wait! If you’re curious about what Design Camp is all about or want to join me, check out the website here. My goals are to learn a lot, network and make new connections, and get motivated. Thank you over and over to Lisa Mende, Kelli Ellis & Lori Dennis! I look forward to meeting you all!
See you at The Fox!
