Miscellany Monday

1. I have really enjoyed watching the 5 day wedding photography workshop with Jasmine Star on Creative Live.  Yes, I spent almost all weekend watching.  It was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!  Jasmine Star is very inspiring and charismatic person.  I am not a wedding photographer, but what she had to say over the 5 days inspired and resonated with me.  Much of what Jasmine talked about could translate over to people running any business.  I soaked up all of the info I could over the 5 days.  I am truly grateful I stumbled upon Creative Live a couple days before the event and tuned in.  I am going to definitely watch more of their creative classes.

2.  We are going camping this weekend.  Wish me luck...I am not a "camping" person.  While I like the outdoors I would much rather stay in a hotel and sleep in a real bed.  The only reason I agreed to go camping is because we are going with wonderful friends.  I know we will have a fabulous time.  It's going to be interesting trying to cram everything into our Hyundai Elantra.  The saving grace is there is a Walmart close, so we are buying most of our food when we get there.

3.  Super excited...my camera lens is on it's way back home.  I am hoping it gets here on Thursday as predicted so I can take it with me camping.  I LOVE my new 50mm lens, glad it is done being fixed.  Lets hope I don't have any other problems with it.  I can not wait to take some awesome shots while camping.  =)

4. Remember last week, when I showed you the bow centers?  Look at how pretty the ballerinas look on these bows from Graceful Girls.  ADORABLE!
Hope everyone has a fantastic week!!

I feel the same way about camping that you do, except that I won't even go!

Very cool that you found some tips that you can use for yourself through the creative live thing!

Oh Melanie...in my world, camping would involve a Hotel and a hair dryer! You're very brave, but I'm sure the kids will totally love it!...Your ballerinas are darling!

We enjoy camping, but hubby always wants to stay in a tent. I always bring my huge air mattress. The ballerinas are too cute! Zoe starts dance on 9/20 so we are super excited!
