"Oh the sky will be blue, and you guys will be there too..."
-Olaf, Frozen (2013)
Hey guys! It's been a while, but hopefully it won't be so long next time since I have...drumroll please...FINISHED SCHOOL! And not just any school...I'm done with highschool! I will be going to college this fall, but for this summer—this last, glorious summer—I'm pretty much free to do absolutely whatever I want. And I want to do lots of things!
I do want to get a summer job, but our family will be going on vacation a couple times this summer so that could potentially get a little awkward... I'm also thinking of making things and opening an etsy and/or Society6 shop, which brings me to a definite plan for this summer...
Making art! I want to practice drawing, as well as experiment with different styles and techniques. For instance: I got some watercolors and brushes several months ago, but have been so busy with school I really haven't had the chance to use them. I also received some calligraphy pens and ink as Christmas presents and still haven't even opened the packages. Though I don't enjoy art enough to make it a permanent profession, I do love it as a hobby. (And if, y'know, I can make a couple dollars here and there off my hobby, well, that's not bad at all!)
Another thing on the summer to-do list is work on some sewing. I've got dolls that need dresses, pillows that need covers, and an old blanket to make into a patchwork quilt. And to do all that, I've got a big bin full of cloth just aching to be used. More on the line of a definite maybe, there's some skirts I want to make for myself, as well as some aprons I may produce and sell. (on etsy. that's part of the etsy thing.)
But the first thing, the very first thing, on my summer to-do list is to give my room a thorough cleaning. And with that, I shall leave you all.
What are your plans for this summer?
