I've been saying for way too long now that I am going to get back into blogging. Well, now I've gone and done it. I've signed up for Holly Becker's class, Blogging Your Way. And, if you are wondering, yes, it's the same Holly Becker of decor8 fame!
Holly was in Boston in August at Anthropologie to promote her new book, Decorate. I signed up, but could not go because of my illustration class. Lo and behold, Holly was a keynote speaker at The Creative Connection in St. Paul so I got to meet her there at her book signing anyway! I walked up to her and she said, "Can I give you a hug?" LOL. I suppose I must have had an endearing (or maybe pitiful) look! I told Holly that I have been a reader of hers from way back in her Boston days. I love her blog. Love her new book -- that I got at TCC and had her sign.
I also took a class from Leslie Schewring, who is also a BYW teacher. Leslie's class was all about creating inspiration boards. I created a really nice one. I'll have to post that picture later. Leslie's blog is called A Creative Mint.
Here's hoping BYW gets me back into the swing of things! I am not allowed to say anything about the content of the class, naturally, since people are paying. I will say that I've read the introductory materials and I think it's off to a great start! The first official day is October 14th.
In preparation, I created an avatar (not unlike the one on my blog) using Gravatar and requested an account with Pinterest. I had heard of Pinterest, but not Gravatar. I'm signed up for both now. Off to a great start.
