Happy Thursday!

Working Designer Wednesday

This is our last Working Designer Wednesday until the new year! Can you believe it?! Another year nearly gone…

So let’s have a little fun before we close the book on 2013…

1. Have you heard of the Chapel Designers? If you’re feeling isolated as a designer and you’re looking for support, you should look into joining this group. The Chapel Designers cheer one another on, share ideas, problem solve together when a designer experiences a problem while designing or executing an event and meet a couple of times each year for a jam-packed conference of inspiration and practical business advice hosted by founder Holly Chapple. The next Chapel Designers conference is right around the corner. This particular conference is a collaboration between Holly, owner of Holly Heider Chapple Flowers and Joost, owner of Florabundance. For more information on the conference, click here.
