Fall Fun


As usual, I have tons of projects that I am working on and tons more that are still in the planning stages. I will get around to posting all of them soon!



I have been taking a continuing ed class at MCAD(http://www.mcad.edu/) on Saturday mornings. The class is focused on papermaking and relief printing with a little basic bookbinding thrown in. This Saturday is the last class and I will post some pics of my finished projects as well as a bookbinding tutorial. The people in the class are really cool (with just a couple exceptions) but I do wish the class itself was a little more stuctured. It's been a good opportunity to become familiar with the campus - especially since I'm considering applying to their post-baccalaureate program.



I am also supposed to be working on two watercolor paintings. One is a commissioned piece for someone at work. The other is a donation to a silent auction benefiting breast cancer research. I am hoping to have time to work on those tonight.



In addition, I am starting to plan Christmas present projects. I'm determined to make gifts for the majority of the people on my list this year. There are a million other things I'm planning - including a bunch of baking experiments. There aren't enough hours in the day. It might help if I stopped obsessively watching Food Network and those design makeover shows on TLC and HGTV.

No, I don't think that you should stop watching those shows because then I might have to stop watching them too. Plus PROJECT RUNWAY is starting in about a month!! You can't resist that.

What about watching them while working on your projects? I know it helped Emily and me; we watched a marathon of Clean House while cleaning our bedroom.
