When the Electronically Stunted Dream of Becoming Graphic Designers

Hello friends! 
Here's the deal.
I like to create new things.
I mean I really like it.
Especially cute things.
Which is why interior design is perfect for me.
But then I was thinking.
I spend hours and hours everyday on my computer.
Mostly reading blogs or looking at Pinterest.
And a small portion doing homework.
So since I spend all this time doing nothing productive
wouldn't it be awesome if I could create new things on my computer?
It's combining two of my favorite things
 Creativity and my computer 
I thought I'd struck oil with this idea...
Until I realized it's already been thought of.
It's called graphic design.
 I did feel dumb when I realized this, in case you're wondering.
You see graphic designers can make the coolest things! 

Like my blog layout for example.
It was a premade template from Simply Yours Designs
And it's so freaking cute!
 It makes blogging more fun for me.

Or  my button.

It was designed by 20 going on 80 blog design.
She's so nice and makes things that are cute.
Therefore, I think she's awesome.

But I wanna be awesome too people.
I wish I knew more about this business called graphic design.
However, currently, the most I can do on the computer is type things in a word document.
But trust me when I say, I'm a pro at that. 
So somebody should teach me.
I'll love you forever and ever.
But considering it's taken me over twenty minutes to get the formatting of this post right
I'd say you're gonna have your work cut out for you.

How exciting!! I love graphic design :) I'm not a pro at it, but I'm now taking my first "official" photoshop and adobe software class. It's a lot of fun, and my biggest advice is to just play around with editing pictures, creating designs or anything else! (Even if it's on paper first!)

Also, do you follow Kristen at Confessions of a Graphic Design Student? She has an awesome design blog!

xo, gina
