Back To School

Today is the first day of school and I admit I’m not mentally ready for it. Still, I need it desperately. I need the schedule, the assignments and the challenge to my creativity. I’ve been coasting along since last spring and need a metalsmith kick in the pants.

This semester I’ll be exploring blacksmithing, but only enough to learn to make some tools. I told my instructor, Kevin, that I didn’t want to spend all my time in front of the forge. Since he’s a whiz at mechanisms, we agreed that he’d teach me how to make all my pieces move. This will require some math skills, which we all know I do not posses. This is either going to be a very exciting time or the longest semester of my life!

  1. Tam, curious what you’ll think of the men’s Fall-Winter collections 08-09 that I guess went on the runway in Paris today.

    Here’s a link to the Prada show. Click “Diaporama,” which I guess means “slide show.”
