College Art Class

Here are some of the drawings that I have done while taking Drawing 100.  We started out with India Ink for the first day, and then went into Graphite.  Then Charcoal, which by the way is my favorite! And now we are on India Ink and I love it! I feel like I'm out of Harry Potter drawing with a pen and nib.  It is so much fun, but you have to be slow.  This is not a rushed work of art!

This last piece was done today.  I really liked how I was able to make it appear a little 3D when adding the waterbrush over it.
More to come!


Hello everyone!!! I'm sorry I've been gone for sooooo long-summer was hectic with two of my sister's weddings ( :D ) and woek and then moving to school!!! I am here in River Falls and I love it here! I was so scared at first because I didn't know anyone here and I did have a self-confidence lapse.  I was being myself and I was afraid that no one would want to talk to me. However, I have made so many wonderful friends here that I can't believe I was afraid before! My classes here are also wonderful.  I have a Drawing 100 class as well as Introduction to Art, Graphic Design, Sociology, and English.  My favorite above all is Drawing.  My professor is super sweet and she likes me! Bernie adores my artwork and helps me improve on what I am working on and it really helps me.  So far we have done graphite and charcoal (which is my favorite!) and now we are working on India Ink.  I am so in love with this class but I can't believe this semester is almost over.  Here are a few photos from this year and of all the wonderful friends I've made.

Well I hope you enjoyed! These people are all so important to me; they have already helped me through rough times and happy days.  I hope to never lose a single one of them, they mean so much to me.  Thank you college!

New Move!!!

So for this summer, I moved in with Becky and her fiance.
They had an extra room and there are better job opportunities
here so I thought it might be fun! And boy was I right!

This is Boo and her new friend, Bernie! Bernie belongs
to Becky and Ben's friends who live 5 minutes away.
It's so fun to watch them play!

The second night I was there, we went out for wings and ice cream!

Bernie is only a few weeks old, so he's still cuddle-able!
Becky and Ben were roasting marshmallows with their friends
and they brought their baby and I couldn't resist!

After doing some shopping, Becky and I stopped for lunch.
At the place we went, they have this awesome salad!
The chicken was coated in Captain Crunch cereal!
It was so yummy.

My family away from home.

I'm so glad I have sisters.
I don't know what I would do without them.

Jessica's Bachelorette Party

Here are a few photos from Jes's bachelorette party!
Do enjoy! My mum and sisters and I put this
together to resemble a 1950s sleepover!

Friends giving Jes advice abou marriage,
kids, love, and life in general!

Jes being cute!

My mum.

Becky found this super cute underwear poem
where you find the panties that go along with
the poem for the bride. It was super cute!

A 1950s nighty!

I will post wedding photos once they are online!
Best luck to Jes and Trevor!
