Spring Semester is Over!!!

It is the best feeling! Here is a little recap of Spring 2008.

First I was scheduled to take Advanced Drawing and showed up the first day only to find out they dropped the class. It was too late to petition a drawing /painting class so somehow I ended up taking woodworking.

My pencil box built & designed by myself.

Keep in mind I had never used any of these

Basically I love tools now and keep talking to David about buying some. Funny how these conversations sound familiar except I use to be the listener and David was the tool talker.

Next, was the History of Exhibitions and Museums class. This class was more than I expected as Karen Moss the teacher was also the Curator of Collections and Director of Public Programs at the Orange County Museum of Art. For CSULB it was one of my first experiences having a teacher who genuinely was interested in her students even going so far as to invite us to her loft for the final.

Mothers Day

I don't know what any of us would do without our mothers. I am so thankful for my mom, David's mom and our grandma's. I didn't get any photos from Sunday so I'm doing a photo tribute to some amazing women who make up who I or my husband is today. Thank you for all of the sacrifices you have made so that you could be a mother.

Mom you are beautiful! Thank you for always being there for us.
Beverly you are beautiful! Thank you for raising such a wonderful son!

Grandma Gray and Grandma Velma - both beautiful women! Thanks for being great mothers who raised wonderful sons and daughters.
