Design Your Life Week #1

October 6th, 2008

A few days before the deadline for signing up for the Design Your Life class by Cathy Zielske, I stumbled upon some information about it. Being a big fan of Cathy’s and haven taken a class from her previously, I decided on the whim to take the class. It’s a 12-week on-line class with videos, message boards, handouts, etc. The class covers topics related to design which I can always use some aide and inspiration. I’ll share my projects on my blog.

In week #1 we concentrated on symmetrical balance.

We were also given a challenge to use a certain color palette (orange, yellow, blue, brown in muted shades) and a sketch.


Journaling: While Back to School means some things to the girls, it means different things to me. It’s back to meetings, daily trips to school, volunteer hours and Girl Scouts. One event that starts it all is my Moms In Touch group meets for breakfast at Alana’s Cafe. Here in this cozy, intimate cafe, we discuss our summers, the upcoming school year and our group plans. After our initial breakfast meeting, we will meet every other week at one womnan’s house and prayer for the school and the students. Through the coarse of the year, we will pray for every student, administrator, staff, field trip and school event. We will prayer for our own children as they struggled with academics, homework, relationships, physical changes, and their influence on the school and other students. Every year we see wonderful answers to prayer.
