Happy hump day Fab Housewives! I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking we could all use a little pick-me-up this mid-week, so I’ve decided to share some exciting news!
Last week, I was accepted into the interior design program at The Fashion Institute of Design Merchandising, or more commonly known as FIDM! I’ve already begun classes, studying everything from sketching and technical drawing, to design process and history of architecture and interior design. I’ve been so in my element these past few days, I can’t even tell you how excited I am!
The decision to go back to school was an unexpected one. I’ve been feeling myself slipping into an uninspired lull over the past several weeks. Or, For lack of a better word, I’ve been bored. Since boredom is absolutely no way to live life, I knew I needed to make a big change, and fast. It took lots of soul-searching and deep convos with the hubs (the man deserves an award, he’s such a sport) to finally figure out what that change needed to be.
Turns out, I subconsciously always knew I wanted to study interior design, I’ve just been writing it off as hobby instead of a career. In fact, I owe much of my decision to you all; through the DIY projects and design inspiration posts I’ve been sharing with you here at fabhousewife.com, I discovered a passion and flair for designing and creating a home. For years, a little voice in my head has been nagging me to go to design school. I just finally decided to listen to her!
So here I am making my dreams come true, even though I haven’t stepped foot in a classroom in over 6 years. It’s scary, thrilling, and completely and utterly empowering, all of which are feelings that I’d like to share with you, my fabulous readers. To celebrate my entry into the world of interior design as a profession, I’ve partnered with Lewis & Sheron Textiles to offer a fantastic giveaway opportunity so you can make your own DIY dreams come true!
