Summer always means a slightly slower pace as the weather heats up so we have a slower paced weekly news this week. But we do have a few things to share with all of you.
I recently stumbled across BlogShop – a Photoshop class specifically for bloggers – and thought I’d pass it on. Billed as “Photoshop Bootcamp” it’s taught by Bri Emery, author of one of my favourite design blogs, DesignLoveFest, and photographer Angela Kohler. The class is aimed at beginners and is a full weekend. They only have one Canadian stop on their schedule at the moment – Toronto, July 28-29th. A word of warning – the class is only for Mac users and you must be able to bring your laptop with you. For those of you in other cities, they do have a link on the TO workshop page to request your city! From the looks of it, their workshops do sell out – Toronto is the only active city on the list that still has spaces.
Members Only Opps
Just a quick reminder that we have an active Member Opportunities still running: The Summer Fresh Original Recipe promotion. Be sure to check it out if you haven’t already. And a big thanks to all our members who participated in the BCfresh New Nugget Potato recipe challenge – we can’t wait to see who the winners are! If you’re in BC or AB, it’s just the beginning of fresh produce from BCfresh so keep your eyes open for more tasty healthy treats coming your way.
