After watching each group present, I was so proud to see everyone’s work come together. The collaboration and teamwork was truly inspiring, and I’m very thankful to be a small part of this amazing class. What a semester! What improvement! Thank you, Professor Collins for guiding the way. The blood, sweat and tears paid off.
Hello everyone! These presentations blew my mind! Everyone did such a great job. This was an extremely tough project and it left many of us working into the wee hours of Thursday morning. It was exhausting, but you should all be proud of yourselves.
Hey everyone! I just wanted to give a quick preface and say I was really impressed with all of your work. I felt like everyone’s project had a unique story to tell, and I really enjoyed getting to see all of them.
How do you make an apron in one afternoon? Well let me show you!
Hello! I am so excited to be able to teach you how to make a child’s apron! I loved this project. I’ve been sewing since I was a junior in high school and even though I don’t get a whole lot of time to sit down and sew, I get a thrill out of small projects like this one that don’t take up a whole lot of time. So I did spend most of the afternoon making this apron. I started about noon and finished at 6, but that was also because I wanted to film the steps for you.
Budding musician instructs on strapping acoustic guitars.
To check out my tutorial, click here.
Acoustic guitars are beautiful sounding instruments (once you know how to play them). However, something that’s always bugged me is how some have two notches for a strap, while others only have one. I’m a left handed guitarist, and as such, the selection for me is pretty slim, so naturally I ended up with an one-notch set up. I was disgruntled at first, but then my brother, who has been playing guitar for about 11 years, blessed me with the knowledge of how to strap a guitar even when it doesn’t have two notches. I was so tickled that I decided to share my new found knowledge with everyone else.
Why I decided on this topic
Baseball has been my favorite sport ever since I remember. After years of playing, I have become pretty familiar with the ins and outs of the game, and one things I always thought was pretty cool was the different styles that people used to tape their wooden bats. When I first started using a wooden bat I always stuck to the simpler style where I covered the whole handle in tape, but as time went on I decided to try some new ideas out and ended up really liking a newer style called cross-taping (see below).
Even Non-Vegans Will Love It
This is the only assignment all semester I was truly looking forward to, and actually enjoyed doing. I knew right away that I would do a recipe for my how-to…because who doesn’t love watching other people make food? I had no idea what recipe I would choose though. Continue reading
The University of Illinois has grown and evolved over the past 150 years to become one of the most renowned universities in the world.
The University of Illinois started way back, 150 years ago. It started as Illinois Industrial University and with a class of about only 50 students.

Growing Local Farms One Share at a Time
The agriculture community is the driving force of our society. They grow the food that feeds our bodies and allows us to be strong enough to strive greatness and change our world. Without farmers and their crops, we do not eat which means we dwindle to non-existence. In times of economic uncertainty, everyone needs financial support. “Community Supported Agriculture” (CSA), helps farmers keep food on our tables by selling stock in their farms to members of the community. These stocks give customers a chance to know exactly where their food is coming from and who grows it.
