BLOG INSPIRED

so (obviously) here i am starting a blog. it's something i've said i'd do for a long time, but just never got around to it. having moved to southern california recently (ahem, about 5 months ago) and being a "post grad" or whatever i thought it would be fun to document too.

however, the biggest catalyst for action was attending a photoshop for bloggers class by one of my favorite bloggers, bri emory of

DESIGNLOVEFEST

, called blogshop. i got to intern and help teach the class which was pretty cool. there was great food, fun goodies, and not to mention it was in bri's studio - which is absolutely beautiful. it was, for lack of better words and being completely truthful, really inspiring.

another reason for starting a blog is that some of my friends have them too! it's fun seeing their adventures and what they are up to, even if they live far away. two of my really great friends (dylana and peyton) have AWESOME blogs. they both have been super encouraging and told me to start one, so i thought, "hey if they believe in me - why not?".

well anyway, enough talk - here are some little snippits from the class. enjoy!
