Here are a few more of my completed art projects. I recently accepted a position as a research assistant to a professor at the University I just graduated from, so being able to craft will soon become a luxury! I find it so relaxing to be able to sit down, be surrounded by beautiful and inspiring items, and have free reign to create! It's having the best of both worlds, because there's a part of me that's very academic (I love school and books), but I also have an artistic desire to create art and make my surroundings beautiful.

These items are so pretty. I especially like the nests/birds eggs etc. Love the Eiffel tower covers.
Congrats on your new job. What will you be researching?
I'm sure you will find a little time for your artwork. You will just have to make time. You love being creative, I can tell.
Have a great night!
ps thanks for the nice comments.

Thanks for stopping by! Your blog is lovely...I studied French for 6 years and having peeked around on your site I feel like I should take it out of the attic and dust it off! I love your header. That Doisneau photograph is such a classic!

Congratulations on your new job!
You will enjoy it! Lucky professor to have you as his assistant.
Crafting will be a nice "break" from the work day. You will still be able to surround yourself with all your pretty things and "create"!
