This weekend was a whirlwind of meeting creative people, spotting blogger/photography “celebrities,” and learning new skills.
I started my morning off in Photography with Lisa Warninger of Urban Weeds. Her lovely wardrobe stylist Lauren of The Little Things We Do did an amazing job of styling all the props and the model. Lauren brought all the props from home. Doesn’t she just have the most amazing eye for things? Meredith Adelaide, the gorgeous model, had her makeup done by Madeline Roosevelt. Meredith was just a sweetheart to shoot. She totally put up with us amateurs!
After a quick lunch at Henry’s with three lovely gals I met in the class, I was back to it in Packaging 101 with Sally and Joke. I started on Sally’s side where we learned all about different craft supplies and tried our hand at making flags and tags. I was scared to admit that as a full blown craft supply hoarder I owned a lot of the stuff she did! On Joke’s side we painted muslin bags, twill tape, and wrapping paper. As a craft room-less and more of a craft supply mountain person, I was so excited to have the space, supplies, instruction, and surrounding fellow creatives to get me pumped! Unfortunately I didn’t take many pictures during the class, but I took some at home of my creations.
I ended the summer school weekend with a Sunday session with Joy of Oh Joy! for a blogging and social media class. I met some local lovelies and I hope we’ll get to bounce our ideas off of each other and have a blog club of sorts.
Are you planning to attend any creative classes soon or have you in the past? Did you enjoy them?
