So Much Excitment

Where the creativity happens!
       Oh my word! I have been a busy little bee. I haven't been able to make another post since Christmas break. School is running my life! 21 hours might have been a mistake. Although I am enjoying all my classes thus far. Ceramics has been my most favorite so far! My first project is due this coming Thursday. My task was to make 2 vase forms. My first one I went with a greekish theme. It's rather large. But I am proud! On my second one I decided to go a bit more simple. A more slender look. That one is still very much in progress. Yikes! I better jump on that. It is very interesting going into the studio all by myself. Just working away. There is an ipod hook up in the room, but I can never remember to bring my ipod. So that doesn't help much. :/ Today was also my first time to ever glaze some of my work. Soo interesting. I love the firing process. After the work goes into the kiln to "cook" it comes out a completely different color. Yay for chemicals! Everyone in the class is so fun and easy to work around. My professor is a straight boss by the way. She has got some killer good skills. She likes to make animal forms. The animals are placed in industrial areas. This symbolizes how animals are loosing their homes because of humans taking over. Poor little guys. At least there are ceramics ones to take the real animals places.
     Speaking of animals. I got a puppy! His name is Franklin. Since he is an immigrant to my apartment complex, he had to go and live with my parents. :( He is a Lab Rot mix, and could not be more adorable. He has little eyebrows, and a goT! haa. I know I have left him in good hands with the parents and little brother. I just hope he doesn't get too massive. That would not be fun for anyone to take care of.
     Yesterday I had the privilege of taking engagement pictures with my future beloved. We love our photographer for the wedding. She is awesome. So sweet and kind. I had no idea Tyler had so many cool places around downtown. Geez. I'm in a bubble. Our thought about the engagement pictures was to do them in downtown Tyler because this was our college town. So the engagement pictures were done here, and then of course the actual wedding will be Fort Worth. Both our homes.  I am so looking forward to seeing the pictures. I will post some on my blog when I get to see them! I think they are a taste of uniqueness and a lot sweetness all combined into one photo shoot.
       Wedding planning is moving right along! Even though school gets in the way sometimes. (sorry Mom..but it does!) This past weekend Travis and I went to Fort Worth to get our gift registration taken care of. We are now registered at 3 places. Target, William Sonoma, and Pottery Barn. I thought that this task would be a hard one, but it turned out that it was a lot of fun! I loved picking out the things that would help Travis and I have a little life together. Crazy to think about how a veggie peeler could really mean so much! Every little thing was chosen by us. Many special memories were made that day just by picking plates, towels, cookware, etc...and many more memories will be made with those treasures in them. Very cool.  I have also picked the bridesmaid dress. I think that's been like a month now since I picked the dress. All my girls have said they really like it. So that's a good sign!
      Another exciting detail!!! My Maid of Honor is coming to Texas a week from tomorrow. She is coming to help with the little details of the wedding that have yet to be done. Cannot wait to see that girl. Love her to death.
