I guess now that I'm out of school and I have a somewhat steady job, my body feels like it's time to build my little nest. I have a love, I have a baby kitten, I have an apartment, I'm 23 years old, and now it's time to think about human children. I guess is my biological logic. So how do I do that? Make my home presentable. So I made this:
I've been pressing this flower between the pages of my massive roughly $300+ art history book, Art Through the Ages, since my bf got me flowers when he picked me up from the airport. That's right, all those two months ago. Well today I remembered I was even doing it and checked on it and it was beautiful and brown and dead and so figuring out how to get it attached to another piece of paper ensued. I ended up cutting it out and hot gluing it to a $6 piece of Archer's Cover printing paper left over from Relief Printmaking, then taped that to this beige patterned scrap booking paper, then went to Hobby Lobby with a 40% coupon in hand and bought me a frame. And I got the idea about two hours ago. I love when I can whip easy projects like that out and be super satisfied with the result.
On the writing front: I'm at page 27 for Ruby. I feel like I'm going to fly through this one. It's supposed to be pretty lighthearted, not a lot of heavy drama going on, so it's entertaining me for the time being. Hope to share it with you guys soon...
