(compare the classes here)


we have done 3 sold out classes so far and we have another one in two weeks. we’re starting with 125 students in each class (open internationally) so that everyone can get really great live chat support if they’re feeling stuck.

we taught 26 more people photoshop at our friend’s, by the barkers, studio in chicago. the stunning florals & decor were created by field & florist. (they did such a great job!) and man was it cold! sometimes i think “HOW did i used to live here in this weather!? this is crazy.” LA has turned me into a major wuss apparently.

alright, let’s talk about our goodie bags and setup for this blogshop. how wonderful was this jumbo confetti balloon from shop sweet lulu? they make an instant party.

we housed all of our goodies in these wonderful creamsicle drawstring packing bag by the made & found. i’m going to use mine as a laundry bag in my suitcase or for packing shoes.

the students jumped around in the smilebooth in front of a (real!) floral backdrop created by field and florist. they used chicken wire, greens, citrus & flowers! (similar to this strategy)
