HORT 261

The class I am most excited about this semester is HORT 261: Floral Design! I went to class on Monday and lab last night and was very pleased with the overview of the course. I'm going to learn a lot of interesting things...Last night in lab we learned about some of the basic tools and fabricated bows out of different ribbons. So cool!
I will be looking forward to this class every week...and once we get to some bigger projects I'll share some pictures with you :)

granny squares

I am currently working on a cute granny square scarf in green I Love This Cotton! yarn. The Red Heart free project sheet is a very cute flower granny square...and when joined can make either a hat or scarf. The squares are very fun and easy to make. I'm even considering making an afghan from this pattern! I'll post a picture after I make some more progress :)

where are you?

A fun way many of the girls let each other know where they're at is by posting a fun little poster on their door. For my own, I created my title with digital scrapbook elements on Publisher. Then I made a list of places I will spend a lot of time at during the school year. My list includes: here, out & about, class, work, church, and the rec. I arranged them nicely on a piece of paper and placed small strips of magnetic tape next to them. When I go out or arrive back at my room, I move my button marker. Here it is...

the gift of giving

I absolutely love gift giving! But because I am a college student, I don't have a lot of extra cash to spend on myself, let alone those special gifts for others.
For this upcoming holiday season my goal is to make all my gifts. This is very ambitious of I will have at least 8 large projects to pick and complete and several smaller ones. I still have plenty of time to get crafty...but the holidays will be here before we know it! Better get crackin'!

the beginning

My sophomore year at UNL is about to begin. All of my belongings have been moved into the dorm and I am getting ready for the new year. My room is beginning to get that homey feeling. Once I get everything exactly where I want it, I will post a few pictures :)
I don't have to work I think I'll work on some of my pending projects! Watch for a fun post!

packin' up

Hey there!
I've turned the whole house around getting packed up and ready to head back to school. I'm studying Family and Consumer Science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln which fits my personality perfectly. Hopefully, as this blog continues, you'll begin to understand what I mean!
The boxes and packing tape are beckoning me...gotta run!
