art, design, education, and dreams....




Hi all.

so. I told you a while back that I am interested in starting my own business. Well, thats still true. I think many moms think that it would be a good idea to work their own hours, and be in charge of their own time. Also, being a mom you become pretty darn good at time management... and stuff...

Anyways, seeing as it has taken me...oh, around 12 years to almost be an architect, one may think I want to open my own design office. Well, fact is, at this point that doesn't seem so appealing. Its high risk and a lot of responsibility. Also, there is not a tonne of work out there and there is a lot of competition from more established people. so, no thanks, not my idea of fun...

So, what then? (and on second hand why are you writing about it in your blog???) well, I am firstly trying to pump up my business savvy by taking some courses at momentum. The first one I am taking starts this April, in business on the internets. I think it will be great. Then, in the fall I am going to take another course to develop my idea further. I will do all this while working and raising my family. yeah, I know.

I want to register as an architect and gain more skill in the industry before breaking out... (for those of you who work with me... just so theres no surprises!)

Then! I am thinking about combining my love of design, art and architecture, with my love of kids and education. I am taking Ruhi book 5 this month, which is a training course in working with "junior youth" or kids in that sticky age just before becoming teenagers. I am stoked about it and think that this age group would be perfect for my idea. I want to develop an after school program for this age group in design, sustainable living and art. (some urban agriculture would be good too...) Somewhat like the mad science program...only design and living...and probably much smaller scale (at least to start...)

Anyways, the idea is to run after-school programs, and workshops for kids, and to be able to promote the stuff I love. I'm pretty stoked about it right now...and I'm writing about it because its on my mind, and because I am open to ideas, suggestions, references, networking...and all that jazz...I mean maybe it already exists and I just dont know about it...

PS aren't those some pretty buildings? from the fall - wood design and building magazine.
