Last Friday I climbed into some odd-looking regalia, was herded with a flock of other graduands into lines and then shown to our seats and finally climbed up onto the stage at the Aotea Centre in Auckland at my graduation ceremony, where I was 'capped' and presented with a nice embossed and signed bit of paper that says I have achieved a Post-Graduate Diploma in Art and Design.
We had a lovely celebration with family on Friday evening, and then did it all over again on Saturday evening and half of Sunday with most of the same people and well as a bunch of friends. It has been a terrific weekend!
But now I want to send a big thank everyone out there in blogland who helped me through. You know who you are!
You commented about my insects art last year, contributed to a 'what critters I like or don't like' questionnaire, and even helped me arrange the final work on a mock-up gallery wall. Your support and input was very much appreciated. Thank you!
