More Projects!

As of late, I haven't been updating the blog as often as I would like. There are many reasons for this, but what it really comes down to is that I spend way too much time doing homework. For example, I spent 9 hours on this design for my Flower ID class. The plot is a part of the school's demonstration gardens that will be planted, I assume, sometime next spring.

Yeah. Nine hours of my life--displayed on that piece of paper. I know, it's sad. What a waste of an entire Saturday afternoon and evening.

This, on the other hand, is a work of art that I assembled in Flower Center last Thursday. We were to create a centerpiece--so I did an oblong design with pink larkspur, daisy mums, and salal. I think it turned out great, and am now displaying it proudly on my bar.

It only took half an hour, at most, and was much more exciting, fun, and rewarding. Not to mention I get to look at pretty flowers all week. :)

I do have some pretty awesome things that I still want to post, but I've got to scan some pictures first . . . and I haven't gotten that far yet. So, hopefully I'll find some time to breathe this week, and all you faithful blog-readers of mine will have some great entertainment soon. Until then . . .

Oh, and someone mistook me for an eighteen-year-old's mother today. Sadly enough, it's not the first time this has happened. It's the third. Do I really look like I'm 40? Sad day.

That is an amazing design. It is so detailed! It must be tough creating something so intricate.

love it! You are so talented! I can't believe that someone would think you were 40. At first I misunderstood and thought you were saying that someone mistook you for the 18 year-old. That would be much MORE likely I would think.

I think the 9 hour project will last a lot longer...but pretty flowers in touchable form are more fun.
You look very capable, Kristin, and you come across to me as a person who knows exactly what she's doing. These are important traits to have when dealing with eighteen-year-olds, as Keri will be 18 next month.
The homework is what you are paying for! Keep up the good work!

ahhhhhhhhhKristin!!! 9 hours!! It looks super good!! I love the plants too, I absolutely love daisies. Or daisy mums, and the way you arranged them is so pretty. You're basically amazing. :)

Kristin! I can't believe you got mistaken for a 40 yr. old! If it makes you feel any better I've been referred to as my mom's sister before which is great news for her but bad news for me.
I've never heard Peterson's lecture on "Zions" and I think it wouldn't change my lazy ways anyway. Zion National Park= too much effort! Anyway, I love your blog! I've added you to my list so I can keep up with all your fun adventures!

I miss, losing myself in things like that. That was back in the semester of CADD. Though it doesn't look like you enjoyed to much of that design. I loved it!!
