Taking the Plunge: Ever-Evolving Portfolio Additions

I hope all you readers had a lovely Christmas! I certainly did.  And now its back to work!  I'm still on the job hunt and as you know, still in school. So with my most recent residential design project complete, I've added a few more pages to my ever-evolving portfolio.  Using the same format that I showed you before, I dismantled the boards I put together for school and re-created them on these lovely (11x17) pages...

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you all are having a warm and cozy day with family and/or friends!  I'm up at my dad's but wanted to share some photos are my apartment.  I didn't put a whole lot of effort into decorating this year, but I did put up some things to get in the Christmas spirit. Sorry for sharing this with you so late.

Christmas Tree Candles

Up at dad's we take part in a long time tradition of putting real candles on the Christmas tree (with a fire extinguisher near by of course).  Unfortunately there weren't a whole lot of places to put candles in the middle of the tree so there's a big gap with no light, but it was lovely none-the-less.  Here are some photos...

Final Residential Design Boards

Woo Hoo!  The last class of the semester was last Thursday so I'm a free woman now! I absolutely love school, but after obsessing over a project for 12 weeks, I'm exhausted and ready for a break.  Hopefully I'll learn to better balance things when I'm actually working in the field. :/   We'll see.

I spent a week or so before finding the final pillow and drapery trims, working on renderings of each spaces, putting together digital boards, and mounting fabric samples. Last Thursday we had to do our final presentation of our projects, which went really well. We had a really talented class and it was so interesting to see everyone's final product.  

Here are some photos of my labor of love...

And yippy skippy, my project got chosen for the hall of fame! There should be photos up of my boards along with two other projects from my class up on our school's Facebook page at some point.
