The Camp Director surrounded by camp lights, garlands, and fringes. And Omar. It's all in the game.

Here are some IMPT Design Camp Notes, yo:

1. I'm leaving tomorrow for more southeastern shores, since ATL mini-camp is this weekend. It's sold out, but if you really want to come, send me an email and I'll see what I can do. You probably DO want to come, since the beloved and much-missed Ben Corda will be there shooting the day and taking everyone's portrait for fun. We're located in a super-cool loft, and I heard a rumor that Ludacris will be in attendance. I know for a FACT that Allison will be there interning (Have y'all ever wanted to order Al around? Now's your chance.).

2. The sadly-cancelled Denver mini camp has been rescheduled for July 27! I had flight problems; Denver had a blizzard; we had to shut the whole thing down. I'm hoping we can avoid all those troubles in July. Go sign up, y'all! The location is beautiful, and apparently Denver doesn't have snow in July, hooray!

3. So, I thought since I was doing a mini-camp in July already, why not do two? Philadelphia! You're in. July 13. I still need a location and an intern. Who's with me?

4. There is one (1) (ONE) Boston spot left.

5. Hey, guess what? AB Chao Design Camp has its own Facebook page! Very exciting. I'd be much obliged if you'd like it. I mean, "Like" it.

I don't know what led me to Pam's website to watch this again -- it was obviously some search revealing an absence of dignity -- but it made me laugh for about ten years. The video is at least two years old, so we all look like a bunch of babies, but please enjoy me, Pamie, and Allison talking about nothing and giggling a lot. You may get a look into each of our personalities. It's probably not worth ten minutes of your lives, but maybe you already watched Oprah and you're bored. I don't know your life!

PS. Stay tuned for an exciting before and after later in the week.

I hope y'all attended a NYE as fun as this: img_2773 img_2767 img_2766 img_2758 img_2868 img_2750 And now, a short list of things I'd like to accomplish this year: 1. Run more miles in less time. 2. Always have printer paper/clean towels/champagne in the house. 3. Kick ass in ping pong. 4. Quit buying so many jeans. 5. Try to be nicer about people's hair. 6. Get a new car. 7. Give an old car to a licensed teenager. 8. Transition this site to a portfolio/blog. 9. Learn how to make pinch-pleated curtains. 10. Take a leap that scares me. Happy New Year! Unrelated: please call me if you can do pinch pleats.
