I spend all my time at school. I'm in class Monday through Friday, and then I go in over the weekend and continue to work on all of my stuff. It's tiring, for sure.

buuuuuuuuut here's some of the cool stuff that I end up getting out of all of that work. I'll soon have better pictures of my pottery, cause we're working on our year end booklet, and we need to photograph selected artwork to put in it.
I finally started learning lighting techniques at school! We had a model in the studio at school and it was soooo much fun. We get to do it again, too, which is lovely :) Don't think I'll ever pursue photography as a career, but it's an awfully fun hoby.

I'll be a librarian some day. :)

What's in my bag!

So, I've tried to blog before and I failed miserably, so here's attempt number two. I figure there's not better way to start then to blog what's in my bag, because you can learn a shit ton about a person from what they carry around with them all the time. I tend to carry a lot, because you never know when you might need something.
First, I have my lovely new (and huge) Nixon bag, with a handknit owl keychain because I'm completely and totally obsessed with owls.
I have two hand creams, both silicone based. Dry skin is my worst enemy.
Two iPods, my small old Nano for when I'm creating messy art (like ceramics), and my lovely new iPod Touch with it's knit cozy :)
My shit phone sits on top of some panflets, a recepit, and my Bill Rose postcards. He's an amazing Newfoundland artist who came and did a presentation and workshop at my school.
Gum :)
Handmade paper notbook from Nepal, with it's gorgeous woven cover.
iTunes card. Can't live without.
Wreck This Journal. Relativly new, still in the process of being wrecked :)
Two pairs of mittens, my favorite honeycomb pair, and Labrador flag pair (representin'). Sometimes you just need two layers. It gets cold here.
Lip balm. I have a lot of lip to cover.
Film Rebel, and little green ducky that the batteries sit in. Those batteries almost cost more then I paid for that lovely second hand camera.
Keys, complete with two keychains from Cuba, a glow-in-the-dark elephant, broken scratch ticket scratcher, my talking cat, Louis, and, of course, my keys.
Reporter notepad, full of important dates and deadlines.
Bandaids, because I'm carving soapstone in school, and I tend to barberize my hands.
Jump drive. Everyone needs one.
Pile of Sharpies and a pencil.
Wool hat to keep my head warm!

That's all!
