This semester has been super busy, and I have only been able to look as far ahead as the next assignment due. I didn't even realize that we had the whole of Thanksgiving week off until a few days ago, when I looked ahead to see what was due next. What a welcome surprise! I thought we only had a 4-day weekend like when I was working at a regular job. Of course, I still have school projects to finish up, but I have been enjoying waking up without the alarm.
So what have I been up to all this time? Well, let's see. I had another portfolio critique for drawing class. We did some really fun drawings for this last portfolio, and I was pleased with how they all came out.
I finished my rug in weaving class and started on a tapestry piece, which is due the Monday after the break, so I will be going in to the weaving studio a couple of more times over the break to finish that up.
Our final project in Creative Process class will be a book, and I have been brainstorming ideas for that.
I saved my favorite for last - metals and jewelry class. Our second project in that class was to make a ring. I made several practice bands, and played with stamping and different textures before making my final ring to submit. I will save the details for a separate post. :)
More soon! I just have to organize my photos for the next post. :)
I have always loved making things with my hands. It has always amazed me that I am able to take an image in my mind and make it come into form. Like magic!
I will never have enough time to create all the wonderful things waiting to come to life from my imagination, but you can see a few of the lucky ones that actually get made here.
I hope they bring a bit of joy to your day!
Thanks for looking!
