First up, the cookies for my daughter's Valentine's party at school, postponed until tomorrow due to snow. (whew! It would have been chips-a-hoy otherwise!)
They have the kid's initials on them. I was too pressed for time to do whole names. In addition, I hate writing on cookies. You have to have a very steady hand and if the consistency of the icing isn't perfect, it turns into a big sloppy mess.
Next up was 2 submissions to Cards Magazine, done nearly at the deadline last night and emailed with my eyes half closed I was so tired. Can't post em' on account of they have already been accepted. Yipee! They are going "to the show" (any Bull Durham fans out there?) I was happy to get this news today since it was evident to me around 4 that I was not going to get to do my Cards Blog challenge card this week.
Did my photo assignment, which was promptly ripped to shreds by Gary the photo teacher tonight. I've learned so much in this class and it's really helpful (although sometimes painful) to hear what others think of your work. Had flashbacks to the old art school days and the painting studio critiques.
This week was the still life assignment (we had to use a glass, an apple and a paper bag).
This week was the last week. In a few weeks I start the advanced class. Another reason to look forward to March: 1) call the pool guy; 2) start the new photo class. Good & good!
In the midst of this I ran out today and found a dress for my parent's party in record speed. Tomorrow it's the hair (much needed color & highlights). A productive week, indeed!
Late breaking update: no school tomorrow either! What? Apparently issues with the snow removal at the school. Looks like I'm going to have a little free time (and 30 iced shortbread cookies) on my hands tomorrow. Studio Calico here I come!
