In week 7 the first year class had to take chainsaw safety on Tuesday and First Aid today(Wednesday).
Chainsaw safety was such a bore! I wanted to sleep within 5 minutes of class! and I'm sure my classmates all felt the same since I did see someone 'rest' their eyes for a good few minutes, haha! The First Aid course was super easy and SUPER long. Good thing the company and humor of my classmates made the day go by smoothly. Had a lot of laughs and finally got to cuddle today! Probably had some minor embarrassing moments not to sure though just kind of forget about that kind of stuff. ☺Don't let stuff bring me down, just look at the brighter side!
*FunnyStory: Today at lunch was sitting with my buddies as usual & I have this friend that likes to shake his juice bottle before drinking it every time and I have a habit of putting the lid on the bottle but not twisting it on. So I asked my friend for a drink of his juice and when he went for his shake then drink there was Mango Mellon every where*
If your wondering about the picture of me with the eye patch it's because when me and my partner were practicing what we had to do if someone got something in their eye. Well in the end I "had to go to the ER"haha
- This is my second crest design for the course. This is a frog I designed on my own, I can't wait until I'm fully finished these crest designs so I can upload a better picture of them. As you can see I am playing around with my camera again which I was inspired by one of my class mate's girlfriend who was taking pictures of him and his art; reminded me about my camera.
-Week six of being up at the college learning how to paint First Nation Fine Arts. It seems that time is going by so fast but then I get reminded by how much work I've gotten done since I've started. On week six we had to do four crest designs. This hummingbird is my first crest design I've ever really done traditionally and I plan on giving this to my sister as a gift since she loves hummingbirds.
-Here is a picture of a rose I sketched before this summer. I thought I'd add a little more color with some green, red, blue, baby blue, and silver spray paint. I then later painted the rose, thin boarder, and a abstract thorn bush with black acrylic.
"What can I add to this painting to make it complete is all I have to answer."
-These are table gifts I made for a feast I volunteered for on Sunday;Oct.02/2011. Nisga'a tradition is that when we have a feast the Nisga'a women bring their own dishes, set a table, bring gifts, and serve their guest at their table. The Fest was for the Nisga'a nation elders and their families that didn't get to celebrate their 'Journey Home' from residential school. Some of the visitors hasn't seen home since long time or at all.
"The feast was so amazing and heart touching. It was also my first experience with a Nisga'a event, it felt nice being a tad in touch with a part of me."
This is a picture of my outfit I was wearing that day, and the Muk-Luks were hand made by my Grandma with Love which was a Christmas gift from her and my mom.
