AUSTIN LEARNED PHOTOSHOP!
austin was so good. so good i cried at the end of class. i was so overwhelmed with how creative and driven these gals were. they asked questions about how to BE inspired. the philosophy of blogging and doing what you love. i will forever remember this class.
we taught in this really rad space called palm door. a big open canvas. the perfect size, all white beams, and it even came with delicious food from next door, pink avocado! i will most definitely be callin these people back if we make it to austin again. and if you have an event or wedding, mariah is amazing to work with.
i get a little giddy to say that chronicle books is sponsoring blogshop now. and first up was Oh Joy (a very close friend of mine!) + Meg Mateo’s book Creative Inc. I can seriously recommend that book to anyone who is even slightly considering going freelance. it helped me make the jump!
i can never ever get over how powerful geronimo balloons are. they are serious show STOPPERS. my wedding will be filled with them, that’s a fact. (and how cute is this valentine balloon idea. hint hint mr. boyfriend!)
those neon + gold ampersand posters?! all i can say is thank goodness i got to keep one of those for my office, because they are adorable. and those beautifully packaged vegan soaps with colorful washi tape were in the bags too. (this picture of them totally got me)
i just got a new instax mini 7S camera and i have been having way too much fun taking mini pics in all our cities. memories in mini form.
those striped cards make me happy. really happy.
and pugly pixel was generous enough to give all the students 50 bucks towards her awesome marketplace of blog textures, layouts and goodies. they loved that.
milk shots, homemade strawberry poptarts and an array of sweets were put together by andrea from bake sale. if you live in austin and have an event, this is your gal. so professional and you can tell she really loves what she does!
and these folks at son of a sailor were so cute, they put so much effort into their presentation of these chevon bracelets. this bracelet is perfect to pair with color! i really appreciated their love of packaging.
and of course those etsy props made things more fun. (similar here!)
big shout out to two incredible interns meg & ana. they were proactive and full of joy.
