A Look Back // Terrarium Workshop

After last week's impromptu blogging break, I find myself full of energy this Monday and ready for the busy (and exciting) week that I've got ahead of me.  Sometimes when blogging is the last thing you feel like doing, a mini break is just what you need to kick start that creativity once again.

As a blogger one of my aims when creating Blog Society was to foster collaboration and friendship away from the computer screen. I wanted to encourage people to step outside their comfort zone, try new things and get their hands dirty.  Our most recent class took this literally as we introduced our very first Terrarium workshop co-hosted by the crafty Jenny Fahey.  

Held at one of my favourite venues in Sydney, The Commune, we enjoyed another sold out event where the succulents were plenty, Peacock Lane from Yellowglen was flowing, Sally from Happy Families Design taught macrame and everyone walked away with not one but two pretty incredible indoor gardens.  It was the perfect kind of class - full of happy, creative and interesting bloggers ready and willing to make with their hands and share with one another. We have so many new events coming up and this only got me got more excited for the weeks ahead. Hope to meet many of you at our next gathering!

Blogger Photography Workshop // Lens & Layout

I couldn't think of a better way to start off my week than by sharing one of our most recent events and one that sits close to my heart. A simple photography workshop held back in 2012 was the catalyst for Blog Society and to host another class - this time with a slightly different focus seems like the perfect way to bring things full circle as we approach our first birthday.

I've been waiting to post these photos because I honestly had such difficulty in choosing which ones to share, they call captured the afternoon so perfectly.  First let me explain that our Lens & Layout class was a photography & InDesign workshop designed by bloggers, for bloggers. I had the absolute pleasure of teaming up with Ronnie from Pink Ronnie and Trish from Tealily Photography to co-host this class and it was a team I can't wait to work with again - thank you ladies for sharing your generous knowledge.

We gathered with a group of talented and creative women and spent an afternoon together sharing skills, our experiences and walking away with new knowledge.  There was a moment in class where I looked around and felt profoundly happy that I'm lucky enough to be able to host events that fill my heart with such gratitude.  This weekend as we opened up sales for a new terrarium workshop, I counted my blessings at being able to work with such fun ideas and bring people together, there isn't anything like it and it's a driving force behind what we do.

Well I hope this week treats you well and that good things are in store. Although my photography and design skills still have miles to go and so much learning ahead of me, I hope you enjoy taking a look back at our workshop, it was one of the ones I'm most proud of hosting...
