Of shoes-- and ships-- and sealing wax

So, it's a busy week.  I had the afternoon off from class yesterday because my professor got sick, and I probably didn't get as much done as I should have.  But I'm determined to kick it into high gear for the rest of the week and get everything done.  I've hit a problem with sewing the notched collar of my sewing techniques homework, though, and I need a break.

For my Photoshop class, we created a mood board using pictures scanned from magazines to use as inspiration for our collection.  I don't know if it's that I'm missing the country or what, but I was really drawn to rural and farm scenes.  Here's my finished mood board, which I handed in on last Friday--

The wall decals I'm expecting?  Could fit right in with this picture.  I'm starting to notice a theme.

Since I didn't have this set up around Valentine's Day, I'll show you a picture of my valentine.  Specifically, one of my two valentines.  Which I legally bought.  We spent the day in bed:

I do so love them.

Okay, I have waaaaay too much left to do to spend any more time on anything not strictly homework-related.  It's Wednesday night.  Thursdays are my hardest day, with back to back classes, three of them, from 9 am to 8 at night.  If I can make it through that tomorrow, my week is basically over.  Let's do this.


thank you so much for visiting, and for your thoughts! x
