This semester has been crazy! I'm only taking 1 class, and not for credit, at that. It's a casting and electroforming class, and out of all the classes I've taken, it has been the most time-consuming one that I can remember. There are so many steps to get the end product of what you want--far more steps than simply fabricating a piece, or so it seems. We are now starting the electroforming pieces, which is what I'm most excited about. I know this last half of the semester is going to take over my life, which is an interesting feeling...on top of trying to work as much as I can to pay my bills, as well as deal with holidays and trying to fit in time for friends, I am having to surrender all of my free time to creating two projects in the next 6 weeks or so. Part of me is panicking...part of me is thinking "how in the world am I going to be able to finish my degree when I go part time (as well as work to pay bills, etc)?!"...but the fact of the mater is, I just have to get it done.

Hopefully I will have some beautiful images to show you soon, of pods and rings and funky necklaces!



  1. Oh I hope things even out for you soon! It is no fun to be overwhelmed with everything in your life.

    I'll take lots of deep breaths and send some calming energy your way!

  2. Hang in there, little tomato! It sounds like you just need to keep taking those deep breaths and before you know it, Christmas will be here and you will have made it to the finish line.

    Sending you good thoughts~

  3. Love that ring! I really wish I was taking detailed classes like you. Maybe when I'm at retirement age.
