I added this sketch to etsy hoping to sell it. I'm not sure if it will, or even if the suggestion/demand that I sell them for more from fellow artists is a good one, but it feels like they're right. I've had so many people say that five then seven dollars was too little to pay for an original sketch that could possibly get reproduced that I changed the price to about double that. So far at the original price I've sold about 6 sketches, but those were all custom sketches. One I'm working on now is of a ladies' bridal gown; I hope I can do it justice. While in the etsy chat room asking advice I was told to try selling illustrations that are finished also. Here's to trying; I'll never know unless I try.
A friend of mine recently had a baby and although he has been given everything, I want to perhaps make a baby bag that'll be cute and serviceable. I hope I find the time. I've really enjoyed using the mobile post option they have available here, now most of my posts are from my phone.

Right now I'm trying to figure out how to network. I'd love to get a job in industry, but I'm being realistic, that's hard right now. I'm seriously considering my options with the internships available and I just don't know. There's a lingerie shop that I'd love to work at simply because I needneedneed the experience, and because it sounds like fun...but what I had mainly planned/hoped was bridal or formalwear. I guess we'll see. I'm still praying about it right now.

Here's a summary:
My birthday (March 25) I'm officially legal!
2. A trip to MS. Actually this happened right before my birthday. I got so many presents and bought myself sum too cute skirts.
3. If I can make patterns for and sew up three dresses I will be able to be in the Bauder Black Tie event!! More about that later on.
4. A whole new quarter in school, hopefully the one before my last. I should be done in august if I work hard.
5. I've been invited to Phi Theta Kappa again! I think this time I'll join.
Okay about the dresses that I must make, I have started them already. I'm almost done with the pattern for the first dress and it actually wasn't so hard. but we'll see how it looks when I sew it up. I'm doing something dangerous, and on-the-edge, I'm going to sew up the thing without making a muslin pattern first! I know...but I don't have time! Less than two weeks for two outfits! I know that others may not be intermediate at this like I am and need all that time, but I definitely do...especially with all my other classes. My teachers all told me to prepare not to sleep when they found out that I have the classes I do. I have so many projects begging for attention that I really shouldn't be on here but I needed to get rid of sum stress.
Hopefully I will have a more common presence on etsy and I can really start to sell my stuff. I'm also thinking of making bags for the youth and family meeting we're having, like for prizes. We'll see. Sarah wants the computer.
