it’s crazy how in the zone you can get teaching more than one class in a row. it’s pretty cool getting to see that look in a student’s eye when they really grasp something we have taught, especially the ones that were having a tough time…so by the end of it all i was feeling relieved and happy. here’s the recap of LA ’13 part two, complete with our goodie bag breakdown…

bkr has limited edition valentine’s day-inspired bottles with hearts on them that we gave out to this LA class. you know how i feel about hearts…

the outdoor area at studio 1342 was perfect for a quick fresh-air let’s swing around, laugh and try to retain all this new information break. these letterpress cards by that noise gallery were pressed by presshaus la. it’s fun to give local goods to our students.

chez renee is a great little online shop and we love these tiny ceramic boxes, each printed with a different number.

plastique makes funky jewelry out of acrylic. this kern ring set was so perfect considering our subject matter. and hopefully, it will serve as a reminder of one of our lessons! they also make cmd-z necklaces. now that’s a vital keyboard shortcut for anyone new to photoshop.

my friend kristen of moon canyon design co. who does the florals column here on DLF really pulled out all the stops with some awesome decor, like this stunning greenery photobooth backdrop.

one of our la students was actually a neighbor at my office and works for karen kimmel. they gave each student one of these journals and a craft kit.

handpainted ceramic black and white triangle coasters came to us all the way from greece from the tilissimo shop. i have two on my end table in my living room right now and i love them.

if you can’t tell by the above picture we had quite a fun bunch (but don’t we always?)

    Thanks for posting this! So stoked!
    So exciting to see the letterpress card photographed so beautifully.

    Is there any way to correct “Presshause LA” to “Presshaus LA” without the extra E?
    Thank you so much for this!!

    It is my dream dream dream to attend the Vancouver Blogger Workshop but sadly it is not within my budget right now. Fingers crossed you will one day come back when I am not struggling on a student budget.
