sell yourself!!!

Okay girls, many of you have talents other than DOC work ;) ....name them!!


For example, if anyone knows how to sew and wouldn't mind being a PW for hire, I would LOVE to know!! I would totally hire a PW to sew me some tablecloths or overlays!


 


So..name your talent!

I can totally sew! I just don't have a decent sewing machine... bummer. I'd be happy to do the sewing for free if someone wants to buy me a new sewing machine. ;-D


I do kick-ass with Adobe Illustrator. I can design wedding invites, RSVP cards, maps, programs, signage, escort cards, place cards... pretty much whatever would require graphic design skillz. I'll be posting some maps I created last week in my bio soon.


I'm also quite good in Adobe Photoshop with photo retouching (like getting rid of dark circles, acne, scars, overall color enhancement and some cool effects) I can also do some photo restoration to get rid of cracks, age spots, water damage in old photos. One of these days I'll create a website that shows some examples


I don't plan to get any kind of license or make a career out of it, but I would be pretty darned good as a DOC, especially if I could partner up with someone... tag team DOC!


hehehe, DH woud say "...so ...many ...jokes" at a thread that's titled "Sell Yourself!!!"

d1rty, I was cracking up at your post...especially cause at first I thought you wrote "so if you ever need a bitch to moan about something...call me!" hahaha


I can sew a button onto a shirt...that the extent of my sewing skills....soooo umm  talents, let's see....i can type fast? oh wait, that's a skill you develop, not really a talent, and certainly not unique...umm....I can't even say I can nap like d1rty!  i suck at napping....I can only sleep at night...so umm....yeah, no talents!  I'm depressed now thanks!

I am shopper!! I am able to get into some design center such as Shinoda (flower, candles, vases. It is a huge warehouse) .And get designer discounts at Pier 1, West Elm, William and Sonoma.


I did have to include my sister-in-law. If you need a scrapbooker, she's the one to call (she has some crazy machines, every programs on computer, all possible stamps and stencils). She is a crafty person (and she is a stay at home mom, she says she has all the time in the world to do stuff). She did my table number (I will post a picture) and she is also a photographer. She is the one that told me to ask if any PW girls needed her help.

Hey, Jess, who knows, maybe one day someone will be in need of people who can only sleep at night and can't sew to save their lives!  We'll be those people!

bets!!!!  seriously you cant nap?? ugh!!! now who am i gonna ask to house sit for me??  =)


 


ok seriously - i'm good at:


research (by nature and it's part of my job)


project mgmt - i'm a complete ass and goofball on here - but i can run with a project with the budget skills of my mom, the craftiness of MS, the leadership of margaret thatcher, the "real"ness of tyra, and the pr skills of miss oprah...and all with the humility of mother teresa...  i'm not a "ballbuster" kind of chick - i just know what i want and how to get there...


letting unimportant thigns roll off my back


focusing on "putting fires out" --- you know when everything in your life - both professional and personal - is on fire???  i instantly know what to diffuse first...  then AFTER it's all over - that's when i panic - like did ALL that just happen???

I love creating things.  I made (with DH's help) all of our paper goods (invites, STDs, programs, escort cards, favor tags w/monogram) for the wedding.  My friends weren't really sure about my ideas until they saw them come to life then they were amazed.  We had so many compliments on our STDs and invites that people were amazed we made them.


I love photography, even with my little point & shoot.  I don't know if I would stand up to jackie's pictures (those are pretty awesome btw).  But fun none the less.


WMforever~I don't know if I want to become a planner (it is something I have been tossing around), but I am currently unemployed, so if there is something I can do for you around here let me know. 


Abattyref~I wish you lived here in SoCal... I would love to be your tag team partner. :)

you also forgot, d1rty, that you're VERY VERY funny!  and you're a great writer...


I too care about people...everyone!  even criminals!  I have a lot of compassion... people think I'm crazy, but I can see the good in everyone....but some people see that as a weakness...i disagree...
