Thank you for taking a look and viewing my progress in the class.   I highly recommend the class!  I had so much this week and learned quite a bit.   Some of my experiments turned out better than other… however I was able to have some fun making and trying new things and that is why I like the most about this class.  It really got my creativity going .
