New project, new camera...

So, for Christmas I got a new camera!  I was so excited!  Here it is!!!
Today I started a new project, and took my new camera, and thought I was set.  As I was walking through this spa taking pictures of all of the massage rooms, my camera would not focus.  It kept trying, but it was like it couldn't decide what to focus on.  So, the spa owner had to carry around a chair so it would focus.  How weird is that?!  Of course the lighting was really dim, but I sure learned I need to learn more about this camera!

Watch this Saturday's Salt Lake Tribune for an article that I was interviewed for on creating a master suite into a Zen-like retreat!  So much fun!  Thanks Jake for contacting me!

I'll post a link here, and then I'll discuss the process of creating a Zen-like retreat!

When I was in school we had to write a business plan.  My business plan went something like this:  "Be an independent interior designer, and a wedding and event planner..."  My professor said those two things didn't really work together, and that I needed to rethink that idea.

Fast forward about 8 years, and I met her daughter-in-law.  This professor is an interior design professor, an interior designer, and a wedding planner.  Interesting...  Anyways, I promise this is going somewhere :)

Well, I've been contemplating new business endeavors.  I've been working in my church, planning, organizing, and carrying out many large scale events and conferences for a few hundred people.   Granted at these events I haven't used any of my design skills.  I have had the opportunities to decorate for other activities, parties, weddings, etc...  I arrange flowers as a hobby... So, I guess what I'm saying that in the not so near future, Designs by Pyper will be starting up a new phase of business!

Spread the word!
