Today’s the big day!

Posted: July 10, 2008 in Uncategorized

A few months I decided to make the big change and go back to school.  I already have a Bachelor’s from UF in Therapeutic Recreation.  After working in that field for several years before having kids I know it’s not something I want to go back to.  So I’ve enrolled in the Graphic Arts Design program at the local community college.  I haven’t taken classes in 10 years so I’m a tad nervous.  The kids are older and the economy sucks.  Although we are doing great now, God only knows what the future will hold and I need a career of my own.  Plus, with the kids older and in school I really need something of my own.  I love designing jewelry and scrappy stuff so Graphic arts seems right up my alley.

Speaking of designing.  I scrapped alot yesterday.  Not completely happy with the results but here they are.  I actually did two others that I really love but I want to save those to submit. I think my new thing is going to be decorative edges.  I love the look of the edge hanging out there.  For these I used a Fiskars punch.  I also like to cut out part of the image of pattrned paper for a funky shape to the layout.

    Congrats on the decision to go back to school! GD sounds like it would be right up your alley, if you’re a scrapper and interested in art. Hope you get off to a great start!
