will i ever tire of teaching in this city? not as long as i keep meeting so many excited, talented and just all around awesome students. this video class was no exception and i love watching our students apply their knowledge right in class. are you ready to take the next step in your photoshop skills? we have another video class coming up in chicago this month.
these dip-dyed pouches and passport holders by matine were all made by hand. they have some great clutches in their shop as well.
maptote makes these awesome oversized mapnotes cards. i like to use them as wall art.
i don’t know how they make these perfectly carved wooden rings over there at acorn and archer. we also gave a couple lucky students these necklaces as a prize.
these delicious macarons were courtesy of hilary freeman of the sugar studio.
each student got a pack of numbered edition coasters from heather lins home. i’m really into coasters right now and love how these mix in with bright colors and patterns.
jennifer edmon of something blue created some really cool custom florals that we got to enjoy the whole weekend.
it’s so entertaining to watch everyone creating something unique. they all come up with ideas for videos they could shoot for their blogs and businesses & collaborate with their classmates. and the best part about editing video in photoshop is that it’s not as hard as you’d think. you can add custom text, colors, handwriting…trust me, it’s cool.

it’s been a little dull and rainy here in LA lately (which i love), and i’ve been seeing lots of umbrellas around. i think they are one seriously underrated accessory. today we thought it’d be fun to show you how to make a stylish one of your own using wax paper, some tape, and a little paint…
what you’ll need:
• craft paint that is listed for fabric (we like martha stewart’s)
• blue painter’s tape
• wax paper
• paint brush
• circle cutter or circle punch (we like this circle cutter kit)

sure, it’s really hot in LA right now. but i don’t care…these ALL knitwear products are seriously great. her use of color & pattern is really incredible, don’t you think?!
things have been moving very quickly around here these days. i’ve hired a new employee and we’re working on big ideas that feel a little overwhelming to be honest. but also very exciting. i still get nervous when i pitch a job, or when my ideas seem out of reach, but i’m learning to just go for them anyway. i hope i can encourage you to do the same.
OH! and i realized it’s my 4 year blog anniversary this month.
i stumbled upon my old header the other day when i was cleaning my desktop and it really made me feel so grateful for all of your support on this journey…coming back to this blog, commenting, interacting. thank you so much for that. i always think about the day i started this blog and how my only intention for it was to inspire. whether it was inspiring me or someone else. the goal remains the same now. xo -bri
