Goodbye Winter Semester.

Last Friday April 8 I finished my last final for Winter 2011 semester.  It was a bitter sweet day.  I loved my classes this semester.  I worked hard, but I think this was my best semester for classes and grades.  I think basically every class I took was like a "fun" class:  Areobics, Intro to Public Relations, Book of Mormon, Media Law and Ethics (this class kicked my butt, but I came out with an 88% which I was very happy about)

visual media.  I learned to use, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign. My favorite is Illistrator.  I have found that I love to design.  Below are a few samples from my class.    
 montage- combining two unlike images and making it one.
The cover to my portfolio... minus the little checkers in the corner.

Some ideas for my parents future catering business logo. 
Home Decor sewing:

Pink and green curtains. 
for those who know sewing I learned to use the narrow rolled hemmer foot (1/4 inch) and the ruffler foot. 
Those feet were so much to use (once I got the hang of it) and it saved so much time!

quilted and tuffted head board.
This was quited easy for how good it turned out. 
Soon I will put a tutorial of how I made it. 

other projects:
quilted sewing machine cove and a neck roll pillow. 

Got to work with an organization called CenterStage.  They plan and organize the perfessional performers that come to BYU-Idaho.  I learned that it takes so much work to put on an event, but I also learned that I love to plan events and work with people.  This was my dream job on campus.  Now I will be moving onto my next dream job working under the deam of the Business and Communications College planning their events. 

I learned so much this semester.  Not only did I have a great semester with my classes I have a great job where I get paid to do my home work and help people at the information desk and lost and found.  We also made some long lasting friends.  My husband and I have been so blessed.  We could not ask for a better life!

Now hopefully it will finally warm up more that 35 degrees and turn to spring.  I am looking forward to the next semester to see what the Lord has in store for us.
