we arrived in D.C. for blogshop and I was immediately in love with the colorful trees and perfect temperature. apparently october was definitely the time to visit. the second day shifted and we were feeling pretty anxious about the hurricane rolling in. it was amazing to witness our class all coming together to help us get back to LA. looking up flights on our photoshop breaks, offering rides to other states…it was the sweetest. our flight was cancelled and we literally rushed to the airport to catch the last flight out for days that whitney booked for us while we were teaching. we owe her big time. i felt so worried about leaving everyone (even though everyone in class was so calm!) i am just so glad everyone is okay.

I felt really close to all those students, people really come together in moments like those, don’t they? i have been thinking a lot about everyone over on the east coast and hoping you are feeling warmth and neighborliness in this hectic time.

people have been emailing me asking to put together gift guides using our blogshop items. it makes me happy to think people find these links useful. we really only choose items we love and think you would love too…and to see a full list of all the blogshop items, they are on our new website!

1. our friends at bkr helped to hydrate our students with their beautiful bottles once again.
2. one of our blogshop alumni claudia makes these cards under her name fig 2 design.

3. we’re still spreading the minted mini art prints love.

4. the adorable design darling boutique sent our students le pens for some important note-taking.

5. gradient towels from design within reach brightened up our goodie bags big time.

6. cheery floral rifle paper co. coasters from amelia presents (to sit their morning mimosas on)

and a big hug to marie tyler for helping us decorate that studio! funny story – when we arrived it was FULL of halloween decorations from a miscommunication with the space and it was a miracle that it looked like this before the students arrived. haha (hanging skulls, cobwebs, caution tape…it was not good)

see all of the student instagram action on our #blogshopDC hashtag.

and i just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful words about our new website! it has brought me to tears seeing the amount of signups in the last two days. it all feels a little bit surreal. and i hear a few of you have brought this PDF we made to your boss and convinced them to send you to blogshop? so cool.

next stop? atlanta and there is 2 more spots. go on, we’d love to have you.

    Love the snapshots. I want to go visit DC in October! I have heard wonderful things about the changing leaf colors. SO sweet that everyone came together to help you get back home.

    We had such a great time with you ! Thanks for such an unforgettable class. For those considering taking it, consider no more – it’s well worth it. Looking forward to the next one!

    What an amazing workspace! Looks like DC was fantastic. Swooning over the Rifle coasters, too. xo

    Oh no! How did I miss this class? I’ve been waiting and waiting to have a Blogshop DC. I must know when then next one is. It looks like you all had a blast!

    Nicole Dao says:

    So so bummed that I was unable to make this (but running in a zombie infested 5k is cool enough, right?). Please come back to DC again!

    I really hope you girls make it back up to Canada soon. Vancouver desperately needs a Blogshop. Hope to see you up here soon!

    Gia says:

    People believe in you. I think you should take some time to believe in yourself. :). It takes one to know one. Xo

    rachael says:

    Kory says:

    Really hope I can attend this one day, and hopefully in Tennessee! 🙂

    I am so glad you guys made it out on that flight. I was worried for you! Though, I could have used the company on my drive home. I drank way too much coffee and sang tunes until I was horse.
    Congrats on the new blogshop website. It’s awesome. Best of luck to you in the upcoming year! Maybe ill catch you again at a video class. Ting!

    stilettos says:

    I LOVED BLOGSHOPDC! It was clear beforehand that you and Angela truly know your stuff, but what I didn’t know was that you are both very gifted teachers. Everything was very clear and I am now beyond obsessed with Photoshop. You’ve created a monster! Thanks again.

    Ashley says:

    This is so cool! I would have loved to attend! With all of these kinds of workshops, who needs school???

    Will you be coming to Phoenix?
