joining the *real world*...


Today was a day of new beginnings, consolidation and reaffirmation
(I love those days!)

I joined the *real world* today. I have stepped into my new role as manager at the gym that I work for...and have begun my new life as a part-time worker :) I'm working part-time hours 4 days a week, and so have permanent long weekends to work on starting my own business. I'm very excited! I'm looking forward to getting into some new work shortly :)

However, the day was also highlighted by the fact that my academic history was finally unlocked online this morning (on the university website before I left for work)...and my results were posted. I'm going to graduate!! *yay!*

Finishing note: Having just had a week of holidays, I gave myself a mental and creative health week and just absorbed...rather than designing/creating. It was lovely...and very much needed after the *design pressure* of university assessments! The weekend prior to my week away was the 21st birthday celebration for one of my friends. Here are a couple of photos of the glass pearl necklace I made for her as a gift...and the wrapping, which she exclaimed was *very Amy~!!*

Hi Amy - I just discovered your wonderful blog! I love your textile designs and found the post about the katazome technique really interesting... I have added you as a link on my blog and will definately be checking back in future :-) Danielle

Hi Amy,
congrats on graduating! breathe a deep sigh of relief!!
love your blog, particularly the info on katazome. I also studyed textiles at uni, but never came across this technique. In fact, if I'd known artists and crafters were out there blogging back then, life may have been very different! Loved your final presentation...hope your assessors did also.
Cheers
Nichole
