Back in the Swing of Things

Gone Too Long

Oh, it's been a while since I've been here. I have been so busy including a one and a half week vacation recently. The highlight? A four-day photography workshop in Oregon by Karen Russell of Snapshots of a Good Life. You may know her from her online workshops that have been waiting-list only due to her popularity.  She has created a workshop for nine women that was the best photography experience I've ever had. Called the Hometown Workshop, it was a fabulous time in Jacksonville, Oregon spent in a historic house built in 1884. What a charming town it was! There is so much to say, but for now, you can see a highlight of the workshop on her blog here. So lucky and blessed to have been able to participate in it with eight wonderful classmates. 

After sleeping only four hours a night or so during the workshop, it took me the rest of my vacation to recover since we had record-breaking temperatures both in Oregon (100 degrees!) and at home during that time. I did get to the flea market before I went back to work which was fun. I only bought a few bits and bobs but I enjoy seeing everything the vendors sell.

In the meantime, I just finished up one online class and I'm starting another tomorrow through the Clickinmoms photography community. I'm always taking one class or another and I'd love to take a break but there are so many great classes out there. Are you a workshop junkie like me? Would love to know what classes you are taking or thinking of taking. So many classes, so little time!
