I'm working everyday and every night, and all just to tie up all the loose ends for my degree, I am so scared yet excited to finish.. but I don't wanna grow up!

It has been one massive and badly organised stress, but now I can safely say I have put up my degree show this week, these are a few pictures of the assembly stages...excuse my attire, it was an extremely hot day, and the atrium is like a greenhouse! ( and I had been up for 47 hours!!!) haha
it's gotta be level.
sorting out the lighting arrangement and wiring.

I was extremely fortunate for my Dad to come across to help me... he sorted out my electrics and gave me help creatively regarding the final aesthetics! and my gorgeous house mate and best friend (also a decorative arts student) went out of her way to do everything in her power to help me too! I am very lucky and I really appreciated their labors!

- I don't think I would have made it through the day with out the two of them! Everyone else was running round like headless chickens, I think we kept our cool pretty well. :D


my first attempt at a light shade...

hand printed wallpaper...the method.

You just wouldn't believe how many shades of slate I mixed till I finally got the one I needed!
Once the base colour was rolled evenly I needed to wait for it to dry before I over printed with my motif designs.
this is me, screen printing my wallpaper, that right there is my "lucky squeegee!"

It's that time of year...

Well its nearly June and nearly the end of my degree, I cannot believe how fast time is flying by. I'm working so hard and I am surrounded by talented young designer/makers...the pressure is starting to set in, as we have just a week left to put up our exhibitions and arrange our work for our final assessments.
I am not gonna lie, I am stressed and scared, but I'm equally excited at the prospect of graduating and the wonders that await.
I will upload photos of my progress, and keep you all posted about the degree show, but you will have to forgive me, the quality of the pictures aren't great! ( my camera is broken!)
