Day One...

Portland had me a little nervous and slightly frightened, but I conquered the bus trip to my school, arrived on time despite missing one bus stop and walking a bit more than anticipated, met my wonderful teachers and fellow students, and learned a few new things while reviewing a few old things. We used silk flowers today, some of which were so incredibly old they practically came in on the Mayflower! Sorry, that was a joke my teacher used. So, here are a few pics of what we accomplished today. Oh! I almost forgot...the teacher praised my first round design, critiqued my second just a bit, and praised my third with some very uplifting compliments. I think I have a knack for this stuff and it definitely boosted my confidence in my abilities. Anyway, here are some pics of what we did today.

*Seriously...note the antique roses with chiffon accents. Nice!
