I'm Walkin on Sunshine

Just decided to get a blog, so that I can put up my quilt / future quilts. The idea came from mi mama aka. madam quilter. The quilt in that picture is one that I made for my Senior Project in high school. I actually got the idea from a poster that my brother (Luke) has of Dave Matthews, not sure of the whereabouts of the poster currently, sorry Luke. My mom (who helped out tremendously) and I traced the quilt on to freezer paper and ironed it to the fabric cut and sew. The guitar is made from about a mile of metallic red thread that I thread painted. She taught me everything I needed to know =) It won Best Amateur Entry in Fort Washington, and I apologize I can't remember if it was an AQS show or what.

some videos of mine
Peace Train-
the music is Cat Stevens - Peace Train

I actually wrote and made this movie for my art class...Peace Train
There are billions of ways to interpret this movie; Im not even sure which one I like best. When I started this movie the overall theme/question lingering in my mind that I wanted people to see was; After the 200+ years this country has been active, after oppressing black people forcing them to be slaves, not giving them the right to vote, after women were not allowed to vote, after telling immigrants of any color they cannot be citizens of America because they are not white, after all that you would think this country would learn that everyone deserves a fair and equal opportunity, yet still today people that are considered gay or lesbian cannot marry whom they love and admire, and immigrants are being shunned out of this country while their own country is hurting them. I think the movie turned out to be more about hope and peace that one day we will all be equal. I really wanted whoever was watching this to get emotional, which is why the pictures move the way they do; at first going to the beat of the music, then telling a story about Americas history keeping in mind that this song was written in 1975. There are a couple of hidden secrets I added to my movie either on purpose or accident. Such as the one mistake that I just forgot to change; Ill give you a hint it has to do with not being American, but instead North American. And one of the pictures I actually took myself. I hope you enjoyed the movie as much as I did making it.
