I've finished my last semester at Suffolk Community College. As long as I get a passing grade on my History of Religion paper I'll be graduating with my Associate's Degree in Visual Arts.
I can't tell you how many people have asked me "What will you do now with your art degree?"
Truth is.... I REALLY don't know. LOL! I have to say, it's a bit more than scary... For now, until I financially NEED to go find a real job, I'm just following the path that the wool is leading me on. I've been SO blessed with finding fiber tools that I could afford (that under normal circumstances I would never have been able to acquire) and such wonderful fiber people in my life now, I really can't imagine myself working in any other capacity.
First thing after this holiday week is over and the kiddies are back in school, I need to catch up on some orders for my Art-Yarn spindles. Then there's a shed full of wool that needs to be picked, washed, carded, dyed and spun. On a good note I've done the paperwork needed to turn this wool / fiber addiction into an official business. Oh, and I need to de-stash lots of this quilting fabric...
I'm looking forward to having some free time to organize my wool stash (Yeah, like that's ever going to happen) and spinning / knitting up some truly awesome creations. Now that my mind isn't full of Spanish, Geology and History... the ideas are flooding in. I really should get myself a sketch-book and start drawing out some of these designs and ideas.
Just one last quick note to my friends...
I hope the holidays bring you everything your soul needs and that your lives are full of joy.
