Most Stressful Semester = DONE!

So I meant this post for last week, but I got so swept up with all the Christmas hubbub that I didn't finish writing it on time. So here it is! :)

I am so so glad this semester is finally over. I think having so many tough studio classes, plus super early work shifts, living two miles from campus and my first time living with my boyfriend all caused me to be mega stressed and exhausted all the time. Now that all my projects are done, I feel so relieved.
Wanna see some of what I was working on this semester?

Chip board armor for Design Concepts and Problems (those are all little folded fortune tellers, or "Cootie Catchers")

This was my super stressful group project for the same class. Board game - Trapped in Time

My final piece for Design Concepts and Problems. It holds twelve bananas.
Logos for Graphic Design 1.
Poster for Graphic Design 1.

I had a few other projects in between all of these, but they weren't really anything special, so I'm not going to post them. I'm so glad that Design Concepts and Problems is done. I am not very good with three dimensional work. Hence the whole multimedia thing.
Alright, I seriously should go to bed now. Haha. Good night!

So I FINALLY got around to designing my layout! I'm pretty happy with it so far, and I'll be adding little tweaks here and there! It feels so great to finally be able to design something for fun instead of for school!
Well, I'm off to bed in a few minutes! Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season so far!

Can't sleep - or don't want to

It's practically four in the morning and technically the day after Christmas. WHY AM I STILL AWAKE?

Monday Melodies: First Aid Kit

I know a lot of other bloggers do a sort of Music Monday feature. Maybe it's because Mondays can be rough, and a lot of us feel better during the day by listening to music. I know I always do! I always like hearing other people's favorite music, so here's some of mine! This week, I'm sharing First Aid Kit with you!

First Aid Kit is a Swedish folk duo of sisters Johanna and Klara. Their music is full of beautiful vocal harmonies and just makes me think of being outdoors and in the woods.

Also, does anyone know of any other ways of sharing music on here? I want to be able to upload some of my own mp3's, since some of my favorites aren't on youtube!
