Finals, The Office, & New Listings

I took my first final yesterday for this semester and made it out alive! It was an essay exam. We were given 4 questions prior to the exam and they told us that only 3 of them would be on the exam. We would then have to write complete essays about 2. I chose 2 easier questions and one of the harder ones... To my surprise the 2 easiest were on the exam! I was done in 58 min... We were given 2 hours. It was a fantastic afternoon!

I then came home and worked on my drawing final for studio art class. We were to do an 8 hour drawing of 5 items that we found in the free section of Craig's List. For my drawing I selected the free section from the state of Alaska. I have an ugly lamp, 12 pine trees, a bike, picnic table, and various rocks. Here is my finished drawing:

I have thought about listing prints of some of my drawings on here. I am not sure how well that would go over. I sold a painting to someone in Canada once. Never a drawing though... hmm.

I also took photos of some new items I made for Etsy. I posted these two items today:

Set of 2 Blue Bobby Pins ^

^ Dickens on Butterflies Charm

ALSO! Exciting News! I won a tote in a posting contest by Rhody yesterday! I don't have the link to the bag anymore, but I will be sure to take photos and post them when it arrives!

When I was doing my drawing yesterday I had The Office on in the background. Might I suggest that everyone go to and watch the episode "Casual Friday." HILARIOUS!

    thanks so much for your comment on my blog, and about my twitter button - i couldnt find one i liked so i made the image myself in photoshop (mostly by googling versions of the twitter logo and downloading the images, then rearranging them the way i liked them best.)

    then i added it to my blog as an image and just linked it to my twitter homepage. :)
