What a difference a day (and a week) make. The day after my last post I started to fixate on my ideas of a career in Gift Wrapping. I've had a lot of different business ideas that involve gift wrapping but the harder I thought the more it just seemed that I don't have the medium right now to make those ideas work. That's a bummer but it did spark my interest in another idea I've had. For some time I have enjoyed making envelopes and even lining envelopes that I purchase. And I'm formulating bigger ideas that are much further down the road but for this moment I think I'm gonna see what I can come up with designing envelopes and perhaps incorporating my obsession with gift wrap into that.
On Monday I start school - it's pretty exciting. I'm only taking one course but to just be in a classroom will do my body wonders. Early this year I took a lot of floral classes and I seriously left every class feeling like a happy crack head. Not that I've ever smocked crack, I haven't, but the energy and high I would feel after each class was exhilirating. This time I'm taking an interior design class at one of NY's design schools. The class will focus on design as a business. All my life I have wanted to be an Interior Decorator. I've given it much thought this year and since registering for the course back in May I feel less interested in this direction but I need to honor this feeling I have always had and then reanalyze my thoughts after the course is complete.
I think I am only halfway to the point where I can say out loud to people "I want to gift wrap for a living" and not feel mortified.
