I mentioned in yesterday’s post that there were a couple of book signings over the weekend at TxSC CAMP. A little more on that:
Book Signing #1:
Let’s rewind seven or eight years back. I’m working a corporate job that feels like it slowly killing me. I was so miserable. But, bills are bills and corporate job it was. During this time I discovered New Dress A Day. I can’t even remember how I found it, but I read it every day. Marisa, the author of the site, embarked on a year long journey of reworking thrift store dresses and creating a new dress every single day while only spending $1 on each. 365 dresses/$365 dollars. Isn’t that an amazing idea?
So, here I am, a miserable lady in the middle of Oklahoma with a soul-sucking desk job who dreams of creative endeavors and more freedom. I find Marisa, a super creative, super cute girl with an awesome plan who is inspiring all those around her! One of my best moments lately? Getting to tell Marisa in person how much she impacted my life! (I may have teared up just a bit in the process!) It’s amazing the reach you can have in the world, you know? So, so happy to get to meet her and tell her what a fan I am! We hugged, we chatted, I got her book, had her sign it, and left without paying. Oops! (Luckily I did remember and went back to pay!) It’s safe to say, I’m even more of a fan now than I was before!
