Taking the Plunge…

After helping my mom redo my brother’s old room I realized how much I absolutely LOVE decorating, redecorating, reviving old pieces, etc…So, the hubby and I discussed taking a step towards me doing something about it.  I had read on Dana’s blog about her going “back to school”.
In reality, I don’t have the time or finances to sit in a classroom.  When I reread Dana’s post and followed the link I discovered she had enrolled in an online design course through Sheffield School.
Uh, hello…Online? My own pace?  How fast can I sign up!!!  After doing some due diligence I discovered Lauren Liess of Pure Style Home and Layla of The Lettered Cottage are both “graduates” of the program. They have GREAT taste and are quite successful.
So, long story short, I enrolled and last week  my first course package arrived at my doorstep!!
Sheffield box
And in that fabulous box was all this…
I realize it doesn’t look like much but I feel like a kid on Christmas!!

I am thinking about the very same thing! I'm thinking of Sheffield or possibly doing a certificate course at Parsons. Please write another post in a month or two with how you are doing, if you're finding time to study, what you think of the materials?
