Currently: Working on drafting and making samples for a local company in the process of making a new wheelchair accessories line. Not really my niche, but definitely expanding my mindset on what I can do.

9.10 to 12.211 - Brambling about Europe like a bunny. Fashion internships gone wrong. Living in Holland with an amazing family, taking custom orders and working on my own set of skills. Hopefully can turn that into a table of food or something...hmmm, tbd.

9.10 - Last month as Assistant Manager at my beloved NINE WEST brand!! I ♥ shoes hihi.

6.10 - Accepted by a couple different European designers as an Intern.

3.10 - Denied entrance into the Fashion Design program at FIT. Go Figure.

Summer 2009 - Purchased a Husqvarna Saphire 850. Named her BrunHilde.

Spring 2009 - No more social work for me...dumb layoffs and economic downPOURS. Booooooo!
