don’t we look like the cast of SNL here? i love it! this was our awesome chicago blogshop gang taking a photoshop learning break.

we taught at THIS awesome loft space owned by photographers kristen + chris barker. they were the most generous & spunky couple — we adore them. they were also the ones that sent me their portfolio in a view master! (see here)

now a little about our chicago sponsors…

1. pinhole press: we have been working with the rad folks over at pinhole press for a while now. it’s always fun to get the box of photo journals with the new design I made for the students!

2. jonna saarinen: these aqua + magenta patterned dish towels were really interesting. sort of like a little beautiful sponge. (and how great are those pink legs on the stools!)

3. cutting edge stencils: those are cool wall decals. i would use metallic paint for a cool effect!

4. i’m a big imm living fan. (remember this post?) the students each recieved one of these pretty porcelain letter openers.

that’s me peeking over student’s shoulders like a proud teacher as they get creative and work on their own blog posts with their new skills.

5. penelope’s press: hand drawn letterpress chicago cards! so simple and cute.

6. sucre shop: patterned ice cream spoons. because we all like ice cream in the summer time.

7. fieldguided: a dreamy sequin photograph that would be perfect hanging in your dressing room!

and thanks always to our friends at adobe photoshop for your amazing giveaways!

stay tuned for more about our chicago video class up next! angela and i left chicago feeling really happy at how well it went! we weren’t sure what it would be like to teach a whole new curriculum after being so used to our normal routine (and to be honest we were sort of winging it on this first one) but the students learned a ton and a lot of them even told me that video didn’t intimidate them anymore. (score!) i’m hoping to take this class all over the country as well!
