Another pattern & 2,000 Pics

I'm zooming in to say a quick "hello" before getting sucked back into my classes again. I am LOVING these classes! Here is another pattern I made that is inspired by traditional Mendhi designs. I love Mendhi, Lucie got a Mendhi kit for Christmas last year and I gave it a try... as it turns out, I'm not very good at the practical application. It's truly an amazing art form! I can do Mendhi in Illustrator though, I have lots of opportunities to fix my mistakes (which is a good thing).

So, here's my pattern: (It looks better as an Illustrator file)

On another note, not even two months after I got my camera, I took my 2,000th picture. I wrote "take 2,000 pictures" on my 40 x 40 and now I can cross it off! That wasn't much of a challenge. I have to take a lot of pictures in order to take a good one. It's a good thing I don't shoot with film or this would get very expensive.

Until tomorrow!
