Deadline and Presentation

I presented my final collection of the 12 croquis to Sally and the group today. I am really happy with how it went and am please about what I said. I went first and was therefore a lot less nervous than I think I could have been. Looking around at everyone else when they were presenting, I noticed that they all had a script or cue cards. I decided not to write down what I wanted to say because I felt like this would give me more of a free presentation without looking down and reading off a piece of paper, and I do think this was successful.
I also got some nice, positive feedback. Sally said that my theme was successful in being apparent throughout my whole collection and that I stuck with it from the beginning.
