Five Questions (and answers!)

Posted in Behind the Scenes, Classes with tags , , , on July 18, 2012 by madelincwolf


This week is week 4 of the Behind the Scenes class.  Speaking of behind… I am way behind.  In any case, I have completed the 5 question survey instead of trying to catch up.  I had multiple answers to some questions because I have a hard time choosing one thing out of the many I like!  Oh well…. Anyway, here goes!

1. What makes you happy?….. in 5 words or less….?   Playing with my art materials.

2. Which talent would you most like to have?  Speaking without getting tongue-tied.

3. Which words or phrases do you overuse most?   Idiot!   (used while driving);  awesome, and bits.

4. What is your favourite movie, book or both?   Movie: Jaws.   Book: Out of the Silent Planet, C.S. Lewis.

5. If you could go anywhere in the world for a creative retreat where might it be?  Someplace warm, near the ocean such as Bora Bora, San Diego, Santorini.

In spite of being behind, I am really enjoying this class!

My Timeline

My Timeline

Well, here it is.  I hope that you can read it.  I created this in Image Ready and Photoshop and really flew by the seat of my pants.  My Photoshop gear was a gift and I have not really done much with it.  I guess this non-arty generic timeline will just have to do!  Click on the image to get a larger view.

Why I Blog

Posted in Classes with tags , , , , on June 28, 2012 by madelincwolf

Our first mission in the Behind The Layers class is to tell why we blog.  Originally I started my blog to promote my quilting and quilt restoration business.  From there it morphed into a blog where I also showed my artwork and talked about  things going on in my life.  I am not sure if I need a dedicated blog for my business or if throwing everything into the mix will give my readers a better idea of who I am and therefore I will become more “real” to them.  I hope that this class will help me clarify this.

Taking a class

I am taking an online class called Behind the Scenes given by Kim Klassen and Xanthe Berkeley.  It’s about blogging and finding your passion and along the way we will learn some techniques as well.  There are so many talented people “out there!”  I have been browsing the blogs of a number of the students in the class and find that they are really wonderful, well thought out and visually a feast!  The class is full.   I tried putting a button here so you could find out about the class, but failed.   Looks like I have to figure something else out.  All my widgets are used up, so I can’t put it on the sidebar.  Oh, bother!

Now, go make some art!
