Fashion Show and Finals

Finals are winding down and I just have one more to go! We had our Fall Fashion Show Tuesday night for the Clothing Construction and Pattern Making classes.  I am so proud of all my students in the sewing class! Many started out not knowing how to sew at all to being able to make dresses and skirts.  They put in a lot of work. Aren't their dresses and skirts great? My teacher in the red dress has the class cut out a pattern out together and she sews it and wears it at the show as well. Along with this, the pattern design class showed our own project from the semester.  I can't believe it is already over but looking back I have learned so much!

Along with all this fun stuff I had to show off my final for Typography.  This is a 20+ hour final.  I have it printed as an actual book now but it's best in issuu form.  I was so excited about it yesterday that I felt like shoving it in random peoples faces and saying "I DESIGNED A BOOK! ME! DOESN'T IT LOOK AWESOME!?" Course I only did that to the people I knew so that was just my husband. The assignment was to take a book from Project Gutenberg and update the story to be more modern and focus on type as an art form, less on the images.

If I could I would…...


Buy all the Dinosaurs!

Seriously folks. I'm not sure what my problem is but I love dinosaur printed items. Especially when it is the fossils. Those cookie cutters? Heck yes get in my stocking for Christmas! But enough procrastinating my last final. I'll be free soon!
