6.22.12 – Jamie’s Goals: Week 2

22 Jun

Holy hotness! It is roasty toasty outside! From talking to some friends and family back in the Midwest, I hear we are not alone.

One advantage to all this heat: staying indoors to complete my weekly goals, and that is exactly what I did.

For my photography goal this week, I learned how to create a hand drawn frame in Photoshop. I thought this would be a nifty skill to have for creating party invitations or announcements in the future. Thanks to my fav photography blog I was able to create a fun little frame around Kyle’s mug using this tutorial.

Here is the finished product:

On the crafty side, I took a sewing class at JoAnn Fabrics. I hadn’t used a sewing machine since the 7th grade. My Grandma had given me a nice little “Tiny Tailor” that I had never used because I couldn’t remember how to get things started. I am proud to say I now know how to use it, and I created a pillow case. I then bought some more fabric to create one on my own, and after a lot of sighing and redoing, I did it! It is far from perfect, but I’m learning. Thanks, Gramma!

Here are my two creations:

I already have some projects in the works for next week. 🙂
