Hi Kendra! Great question! Several of our teachers have children, so they chose for them to be in some of the photos. However, none of the prompts are geared toward children, so you can take any kind of photos that you want :) -Jacki

OK, it's happened to all of us before. You're making dinner and there are lots of flavorful ingredients in your dish, but for some reason it just tastes...bland. Boring. Uninspired. I made a burrito bowl the other week and even though it was piled high with veggies and proteins of all shapes and colors, I couldn't get over how dull the dish tasted. The next night I experimented and added... Continue reading

Hi Megan! That's not a dumb question at all! We highly recommend that your camera allows you to manually change settings (such as a DSLR) to benefit the most from the photography class. :) -Jacki
Hi, friends! Today I am excited to share a fun DIY for making abstract pillow cases with fabric paint, working with our good friends over at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. This past year I've been obsessed with abstract everything from paintings to textiles to home decor pieces. And in this new year, one of my big goals is to refresh all my spaces, even if it's something as small... Continue reading

That is weird. Both tools are just using the same APIs the share counters that you're using at the bottom of your posts currently, so you'll find those counts line up about the same. There are a lot of variables that can keep shares from accurately getting associated with a certain link. It's just a limitation on the social networks' APIs, so no tool can compensate. A big one for us, not using jumps, we get a lot of a pins referencing a specific post but linking to our homepage ( or Sadly there's no tool out there that can compensate that, so you just have to optimize your share buttons the best you can ensuring they share the specific URL. -Trey

It makes our television set feel like part of the space, and it adds a lot of color and texture to that side of the room. Recently I made these giant quotation mark bookends to add to the shelf and... Continue reading
