you know what i really like doing?
setting up displays at work. i'm in charge of the hallway display at my work, and ppl always tell me how much they like them. i actually put a lil time and effort in them, and i love picking out the projects and setting them up and everything! i know it sounds REALLY simple, but before i did it the display looked really simple... there would only be about 3 projects on each shelf, and they were just THERE, like it had no character or anything. i like to add other props like magazines and pencils or pens just to make things look more real... i dunno. hehe.
i think i'd actually LOVE to have a job in visual merchandising (if that's the correct title!). i saw a job opening at the american girl store/office/bistro or whatever it was @ one of our malls for a visual merchandiser. it was part-time, and you'd have to work weekends, so blah. it sounded like something i'd really enjoy, but i really don't want to work on weekends. as much as i hate mon-fri 9-5's, that's what i want, haha. but doing visual merchandising would utilize my creativity skills and it'd mean that i wouldn't be at a desk all the time and i'd always be up and moving and creating things.
i went downstairs here at my work the other day to take some projects to the prop room and saw a lot of ppl working on the tradeshow booths... it was so cool. they were blasting music, painting, setting up projects, figuring out how everything should look, blah blah blah. that's exactly what i want to do. or i at least would like to learn more about it. i know it's a lot more than just "making things look pretty." anyway, on that job description @ american girl it said they wanted someone with like an art degree or something? i can't remember. i guess since i don't have that i'd just have to start doing displays or booths here at work and take pictures of them and put them in my portfolio. the people who do them here are really good... we have really nice display cases and rooms everywhere to show off our products.
k enough babbling...
for all of you grammar junkies, check out this web site
--- i've been reading it here and there @ work, haha. i love learning more about that stuff!
and last but not least, my beloved hallway display at work right now:
i know it's really crappy and blurry, but i took it with my phone. i'd do more close-ups but i didn't want ppl seeing me LOL so maybe i'll do it later when everyone's leaving for the day. then i'll post em!
it prob looks really cluttered, but i promise it's really cute in person and everyone likes it! :) hehe. i wish i had pics of some of my other ones i've done in the past =( o well.
