A mixture of anticipation and excitement flooded the room as my parents paced back and forth preparing to deliver the "big news". When the news was finally conveyed, I was elated, and so was the rest of the family. My parents told me that I would soon be getting a new baby brother or sister. I was filled with excitement, but soon those feelings turned to impatience, was this baby ever coming? The biggest part of the surprise was that I wouldn't know the gender of the baby until it was here, and as a young child, the anticipation was eating at me.
Slowly, the months passed, and finally, the fun part came. Our family was hosting all sorts of "baby" parties, and along with parties, came the gifts. Although all of the gifts were things for the baby, I still enjoyed unwrapping them. There were clothes, building blocks, blankets, baby bottles, pacifiers, and all sorts of baby related items, and in that moment, I realized that this was all real. I was actually going to be a big sister. Soon the thought became reality, on October 31, 2005, my family welcomed my little brother, Ryan, into both the world and our family.

The fortune cookie inspired book page was a fun assignment. We were given 6 fortunes and were assigned to make a book page inspired by the fortunes. Every fortune has a meaning and many of the meanings drifted together to make a cool piece, leaving you thinking of the message that the art is trying to get across.

For our pop print assignment, we took an everyday item, brought it in, and made it into a "pop print". I made a bunch of prints in different colors, on different types/colors of paper and picked a favorite. I chose to do my pop print on nail polish because for me, it is an everyday thing that I am constantly using. I was a little disappointed in my overall design, but I liked the different colors used.
One of our recent projects consisted of working on something we didn't start. The main goal was to portray what it is to be a celebrity- is it really all that glamorous? We started by creating an image in forty minutes and the next day we got someone else's and worked from there, with what they had already started. In all, we switched three times, and after completing the third one, we were finished.
