Polymer Clay Dragon Tutorial and UPDATE!

I hope you all have had a smooth transition back into school days (whether you are going back yourself or sending the kids back!). I sure know how crazy September can be! My first month has literally flown by! Anyway, here is a video I posted on youtube a bit ago and never got posted here! Sorry to my poor neglected blog... and its readers! But I hope you like this cute little clay dragon!



 So now for the life updates to those of you who are interested and still reading! My program has gotten really busy and I haven't had time to create anything non school related. This week I have 2 midterms (already! Eek! First one tomorrow!) and 3 projects that are due! Hopefully I will survive till Friday because then for Thanksgiving (yes, in Canada) I am going camping! Can't wait!

Hopefully I will get around to sharing some of my completed and upcoming school projects. I have a very interesting and personal project that I created inside of a vintage suitcase! I have already handed it in and only have bad quality pictures of it on my cell phone, but I will take some better ones to share when I get it back. I also have a couple more to complete that will be fun to share (all of our projects are really fun and creative, I love my program!).

This weekend I got to go on an art walk around town. We visited about 10 people's houses and got to see some of their amazing creations and even some in-home studios! I am so inspired, but have no time to create anything right now! Can't wait till I do! Sometimes I wish I could just create some massive mixed media canvases and maybe even sell them! Just dreaming.. :)

Some luck and prayers would be greatly appreciated for the week ahead! I hope you all have a wonderful one! Thank you all for visiting, watching, and reading!

Residence!

I successfully moved into my dorm room yesterday! I have 3 other roommates, but each of us have our own bedrooms! We share the kitchen, living area and 2 full bathrooms. We still have a lot of stuff to sort out and food to buy, but all is going well so far! I will have to get used to the city noises as I am used to sleeping in complete silence! Anyway, here are some pictures!
Above is a view of my bedroom. We are on the ground floor so unfortunately I don't have much for privacy. Luckily I do have a blind though!
This is easily the biggest closet I have ever had! My first walk-in, yay!
Here is my current desk setup and yes, my blog is open on my laptop!
This is our kitchen and I love the blue wall!
Our living room is a bit boring right now but hopefully we can find ways to decorate. If you have any tips for decorating rentals I would love to hear them! we cannot put any holes in the walls so it might be a bit of a challenge!
Thanks for reading! Hope you are having a wonderful long weekend!
