This week I am preparing to shoot my first videos for my capstone site. As I laid out the plans to start shooting video I started to realize how many things I could add to my schedule. I would like to stay on top of all of the deadlines I have set for myself, and so far I have, but it is not that far into the semester so I will see how it goes in the coming weeks.
During my first set of videos I plan on doing basic instruction on how to do a straight stitch, how to thread a machine, how to care for a machine, how to re-purpose an old scarf, as well as how to repair a pair of (Jess Gerber’s) jeans. My hope is to get plenty of footage to start with so I have a lot to work with when I go to set things up on WordPress.
I am also going to incorporate paypal into the wordpress so that I can (hopefully/perhaps) sell my own wares. I am not looking to make money, I just want to have that extra facet in my site. But who knows how that will pan out as the semester moves along. I am still not totally concrete on what things I would like to make for it, I have several ideas and I am reserving some time during the coming weekend to sketch out a few things I would like to do.
So in conclusion I have a lot to do, and anytime I am not curled up in the fetal position crying (in the corner) I will be working on my capstone.
