Hello friends! I have been away for far too long. Life has been so crazy lately, but only in the best way. I am graduating from college one week from tomorrow - WHAT?!? - and it is been so crazy. I got a little distracted, worrying about where I am going and what I am going to do after I graduate. I've been thinking the past couple days that I need to enjoy these days for what they are. A job will come...when I am meant to have one. I've been sporting a mean case of twenties angst lately. I've decided that I need to keep my mind in the here and now, and just enjoy what I have going on right now. It's been a crazy couple of weeks, but they have also been so awesome. I can't wait to see where the next couple of months will take me.

Yesterday, I got to go to a local art museum for a class. It was such a great trip. We got to look at the textiles in the archives and then we got to explore the actual museum. There was something so great about going there on a weekday, as we were pretty much undisturbed as we looked around. Everything in the archives was so fascinating. I have to choose one item to research for class and I think that I am going to go with the crazy quilt, although everything was so fascinating. We also got to go into the art library they have, which I totally geeked out in. There is also a conservatory on site, which smelled just like spring.

With it being my very last semester of college, I decided to take a few classes simply because they sounded interesting. This was a decision that definitely payed off. In one of my history classes we have been reading about some local history, in particular, about the theater where I took this photo. It was built in the early 1900's and was one of the theaters built by Keith and and Albee across the U.S., and it still holds all of it's charm. This reading has prompted some exploring of my own. I feel like I am really discovering places that I didn't even know existed. I just wish that it was actually warm so I could go out and go exploring. I can't wait until it warms up so I can head out. I am making one of my goals for the summer, and the coming year, to explore the city around me. I can't wait to see what I will discover.

Emily and Janessa came over and we got about to making terrariums. Emily is doing a project this year where she learns one new thing every week, and this week it was my turn to show her all things terrarium. There is a full DIY over at her blog if you are interested in the tutorial. I love having creative friends and I look forward to all of the adventures yet to come.
