Work Complete

I finished working on my website last night. Thank you Jeff for all your help and thank you Conrad for your feedback and ideas. I haven't received my grade yet but I am very happy with how it turned out. Go ahead and take a look and let me know what you think. I'm hoping this website will help me get some freelance jobs after the baby is born. It's mostly a way to display some of my other visual media projects.

Bridal Shower

My friend and roommate from my second semester here at BYU-Idaho is getting married!!! Even though there wasn't much time left in the semester I decided to throw her a bridal shower. My other roommate Erin was a HUGE help and called all the other roommates and helped me go shopping for some things. We played a few games and made Rachel a veil and had a lot of treats. I decided to make a cake an hour before the shower was about to start. I probably should have given myself more time but I got in late last night. It went really well and it was nice to spend time with my friends before we all leave for different parts of the country after we all graduate. Congrats Rachel!!!

Baby Bedding

This is the baby bedding that my Parents got for us. We were really excited to go pick it up at Walmart and set it up. I was disappointed that they didn't have the mattress we wanted in the store when we got the first half of the bedding so we couldn't set it up right away, but when the rest of the bedding got there they had a mattress that we wanted. I love how it looks with the rest of the furniture. Thanks Mom!

Designing my own website

Thats right folks, I'm designing my own website. I must admit it does help a ton to have Jeff around. I design the pages in photoshop and then I use dreamweaver to put it onto the Internet and create rollover buttons and links. I am almost done with my second layer of pages. I also have a few little tricks I want to add to make it more professional. Mostly this website is to display some of the work I've done in photoshop, illustrator, Indesign and Imovie and garage band. I also will be adding stories I've written for the Argus Observer. I know it's not done yet but I spent so many hours on it last night I had to share it with someone. I'll be adding the link to my blog after I get the whole thing completed. It will be done by July 17th because that is when it is due for my advanced visual media class. I hope you enjoy.

Happy 4th of July

For the 4th we went camping with some friends near Island Park. It was a lot of fun even though there are a ton of bugs this year because it was so wet this winter and spring. I only got to take five pictures because our camera batteries died even though we charged them before leaving.
