My name is Samantha. I am a student at Ivy Tech majoring in Environmental Design. As a child I would watch decorating shows with my mom and would decorate my room. It was always a hobby of mine so when it came time to pick a major for college I was looking through what Ivy Tech offered and saw the Environmental Design program and it clicked with me. I’ve always wanted to have a career that I love to do; so what better than design that I've loved for years?What also helped me to decide to do interior design was designer Monica Mangin. I started seeing her on her first show "Knock it off" where she and her best friend Jess would give high-end looks for less. They did so many fantastic do it yourself projects. I've tried one of them in my own room making a fabric padded headboard and loved it. She really showed me that you can have great style and do it on a budget; which is exactly what I want to end up doing. She really inspires me to look at things differently. Here's a link to her blog, her old show "Knock It Off", and her new show "The Weekender."

So that’s me. I’ve never done a blog before and look forward to this new experience.
Until next time,
