I’m not the best at blogging, most of the time I have no idea what to write about and if I’m honest, not a great deal happens to me, sat at home most days!!
I don’t think you would appreciate me telling you all about the 2 ducks that I found sitting on my front lawn this morning, the speckled woodpecker that knocks daily on the tree about 8.30am every morning, the pair of long tail tits that are nesting in my hedge or about the 2 magpies that like sitting underneath my Arbor, come rain or shine. Yes, all these things tend to be the highlight of my day!
However, I have realised I haven’t mentioned my BTEC Mixed media course for quite a while now. Yes I am still doing it, I have never been known to be a quitter, even if I’m not sure what I’m getting out of it? I paid for it, so I’m going to keep on going, also with the hope I might have a Eureka moment one lesson. But saying that I do believe I have learnt some new techniques, I’m just not sure though if I will use them all again!
So the update, since January we have covered decoupage, we have hand-painted and decorated frames, decorated candles, glass painted and dyed textiles. Some of which I can definitely see myself doing again, although I wasn’t too impressed with my dyed fingers!
Well that’s it you are up to date, I’ve only got 5 weeks left of the course, that includes getting everything up to date in my book and my assessment pieces being finished, ready for them to be reviewed. I’ve never really thought about getting a qualification at the end of the course, but now it’s getting closer, I suppose it’s something to add to my CV, if I pass!!
Thanks for reading.
