I'm applying to loans and scholarships, selling lots and lots of my stuff for school (and also buying a lot of stuff I need for school :) ), doing stuff for my etsy shops, and still working. I did gave my notice at work last week, right before I went on a one week staycation where I did nothing, finally, but draw, and am ready to blog again. Really, I must say, giving notice at work is the best feeling in the work. Of course getting that acceptance letter was the nest day in my life, but I think a large part of it being so great is that you know you can move on and never go back to your horrible job... (never say never, right...) I also decided this past week during my staycation, that I am going to make my own clothes. I only have work cloths (fancy office clothes not suitable for everyday casual wear) and house clothes (all of my old work clothes that are too worn too wear to work anymore ), so I need something for school. As I was looking around for stuff that I like, everything is ugly or way too expensive!! I've sewn before, but never thought about making clothes. Then, I found really cheap dress patterns (some vintage :o ) and a cheap used sewing machine. I'm looking at clearance fabrics, which are much higher quality and cost less than any good store bought clothes. So, yeah, will be doing that now on top of the billion other things I am currently doing! Might start another blog about my handmade Mad Men imitation dresses! :)
Anyway, enough rambling. Now for the reason you visit my blog in the first place. Here's Specimen #47.
