Never Miss AN Opportunity has been drilled into mine and my sister's heads since we were kids. My mom has said it constantly. Because of her saying this I have seen and done MUCH!
When I went away to college in 94 to study fashion design I wanted to be the next Coco Channel. When I graduated in 96 with an AA in Fashion Design I really wanted to do couture or sample making. I ended up moving back to Stockton and working retail. A few years later I was taking some classes at Delta with a friend and I realize I was 4 units away from an AA in Fashion Merchandising. In the spring of 2002 I graduated with a second AA in the fashion industry working in retail again.
Again a few years have past and I have my dream JOBS, yes 2. I have been lucky enough to be making sample quilts for the new quilt store in Manteca Ladybug's Quilts and I get to help with some of the merchandising of the store. The bonus is NO customer service. Now I am not an employee, I am a friend helping out. I truly am enjoying not missing an opportunity.
