A Study in Gifs

Hey guys! I just want to talk about gifs, and how they are used. I've most commonly seen gifs used on tumblr, and I'll show you a few types of gifs. (None of these gifs are mine unless otherwise stated.)

Making Hobbes! part 1

I found a link (at bottom of post) awhile ago for a stuffed Hobbes and saved it to my pinterest. A couple of days ago, I found my pin again and decided to start making Hobbes!

Hobbes is Calvin's stuffed tiger from the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. To adults, Hobbes looks like a stuffed toy, but in 6-year-old Calvin's imagination Hobbes is a big tiger an Calvin's best friend. They have all sorts of adventures together. I'm making a Hobbes that looks like the stuffed animal version. 

Yesterday, I bought all my fabric and thread and got started cutting out my pattern pieces. (P.s. Joann's Fabric is having a big sale this week)

Here are some of the cut pieces, Hobbes body and bottom.

Next I started stitching pieces together. 
Hobbes belly, hand stitched 
And arms/legs with paws sewn on
And with stripes sewn on(the directions say to stitch all the stripes on later, but I found it was easy to do these first)

More progress soon!

I'm back! After a looooong time away from here...

Well hello again! I know a few certain people keep reminding me that I haven't written a post in months...*cough* Dad *cough* so I might as well write about all my news from summer.
It's been an eventful summer, which is quickly drawing to a close. I go back to college next week! But not back to the dinky little community college, in freezing-cold-12-months-of-the-year San Francisco. No, I applied to a real university this summer! It's a private, religious school pretty close to my house. Unfortunately, I will be commuting to school for another year, but I'm hopeful I'll get to live on campus next year. I received an art scholarship, so I am officially an Art (well, Art and Graphic Design) major. I'm very excited to do art for school again, I haven't taken an art class since high school.
I took an English class at community college this summer. 0/10 do not recommend if you are not a skilled writer. The class was 6 weeks long, nearly a third of a regular semester, but you still have to do the same amount of work. I had a paper due almost every week. I hate writing essays.

Since my class finished, I've been filling out all my paperwork for university. Between doing that, I've spent my time watching Star Trek: The Next Generation (no, I'm not done, I just started season 7), tumblring (check out my tumblr here), and a bit of art. 

I can't wait for school to begin!

Here is some of the art and crafts I've done this summer:

 Coffee cup charm for my keyring. Starspocks belongs to a couple of my Trekkie friends and I.

I finally finished my PADD project! It's made from stiff art boards, the screens are covered with a transparency slide. 

"Angry Tribbles" is my own design, based off of the game Angry Birds Space, and Star Trek. No copyrights infringement intended.
This piece was made for my brother's birthday. Created in Photoshop CS6, then printed on photo paper.
Little Hufflepuff badger! Watercolours.

What is Sarah doing with her life?

So, nobody really reads this blog, BUT I decided to write a new post anyway, because I have nothing else to do. Which leads us into today's topic: What is Sarah doing with her life these days?

I bought a Tribble...

I recently have become very addicted to watching Star Trek:The Next Generation. So naturally, I purchased a Tribble.
