Sharepoint 2013 Sandbox

At work I am unable to create conditional workflows as I do not have access to SharePoint designer.  I do not have access to SharePoint Designer as I am not  a "Sharepoint developer" per our IT team even though I am a MS Access and MS Excel developer.  

Is anyone aware of a site (paid or unpaid) that allows me to sign up for a SharePoint sandbox so I can at minimum practice creating workflows (note I have taken 2 classes, but without any interaction with SharePoint designer) .  I may be able to convince my IT department to provide me with SharePoint Designer permissions once I demonstrate I am SP Designer WF competent.  If not it would still be nice to create some prototype Workflows that may server as a business requirement document.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

An Office 365 subscription for a few bucks per month should meet your needs. All subscriptions include SharePoint.

You'll need to use SharePoint Designer 2013.
