Sweet Memories

Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting with my Great Grandma who has just turned 102! Yes, you read right, one hundred and two years old!
She has lead an amazing life and seen so many changes in our world.

While I was listening to one of her stories, I noticed this project I made for her back in 3rd grade hanging on her mug rack above the sink! I couldn't believe she had kept it all this time, how cool! If you look closely it says, "God Loves You!" Awe!

Christmas Cookies!

Merry Christmas to those of you who actually read this blog!
I had so much fun baking the other day, especially because I don't have the luxury of an oven at college! Anyways, I found this adorable box at Michaels and arranged all the goodies in there for a great gift. 
I'll include the recipes at the bottom, but there are Peanut Butter Blossom cookies, Almond cookies, and  Carmel Pretzel bites!
Have a wonderful day and remember Holiday Calories don't count!


Carmel Pretzel bites: Pretzel, Rollo, and Pecan. Heat oven to 200, place pretzels on cookie sheet, put a Rollo on each pretzel, bake for 2 minutes. Once they are out of the oven, press down a pecan on the Rollo.

Jo Goes to College!

I have officially completed a chapter in my life! 
High school was amazing because I tried everything possible and made many friends along the way.
Yes, it was hard to say goodbye to my two best friends, (I refer to us as the Three Musketeers, because we complete each other!) but we are all where we are supposed to be. 
Yes, it was even more difficult to say goodbye to my partner in crime and the other half of my creative genius, also known as Mom.
With that being said, a new era has begun and it begins with college!
After several hugs and kisses, I said farewell to my beloved home town and drove off in my little red car, with high hopes for the future!
Because my life is changing, I though that it would be fun to change the title of my blog to "Jo.Sew.Cute! Goes To College," what a great way to start!
So if you are interested in the adventures of a college student going to the "Big City" then check back for new posts throughout the year!

Photoshop Magic

I am in a Photography/Digital Imaging class this year and I have learned so much! 
Thanks to my teacher, there are things that I would never have picked up on before, that have helped me so much. One of the main programs we use is Photoshop, in which I am so grateful to have learned because I will be going into Graphic Design next fall and those skills will be very helpful!
This is an example of what I have been working on this year. We were given a photo to restore and add color to. I chose this one because it reminded me of how my great Grandma and Grandpa might have looked many years ago. I'm loving the skills and benefits of this awesome class!
