You guys know how much I love the Twitterverse so I wanted to share information about an upcoming Twitter Chat. Twitter Chat’s are a great way to meet cool people with similar interests.

#CreativeReads Chat will be discussing Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon.
I usually follow along with the chat on HootSuite using #creativereads. You can also follow along on Twitter using the same hashtag. Please feel free to join in on the convo!
If you’re anything like me and you like to learn new things, then you will love the “global market place for classes” known as Skillshare. Skillshare is an online community of everyday, ordinary people who share their talents with those who are willing to learn. You can find classes on topics from how to make shoes to how to build iPhone apps.
Last month I dived into the Skillshare community and took an online photography class entitled – Street Photography: Capture the Scenes of your City taught by photographer, Kaitlin Rebesco. Although this wasn’t my first time taking an online class, it was my first time with Skillshare and I absolutely loved it! This particular class was 2 weeks long and only cost me $12. Not only did Kaitlin have live office hours once a week to discuss assignments, she also provided excellent street photography resources. There was also great interaction between the students. I’m still friends with some of my classmates on Twitter and Instagram.
So, if you’re in the mood for learning, go on over to Skillshare.com and see what interests you. Let me know what you find!

Calling all creative fanatics and iPhone users; there’s a new CREATIVITY app in town! The brain child of creativity expert, Tanner Christensen – the Oflow app allows you to explore your creativity at any time and any place. This is how it works – the app provides you with techniques (creative methods) to help guide you in solving problems or setting personal goals, which essentially helps you to think about things in a different light, therefore producing different outcomes. Building creativity. Oflow also allows you to take personal notes of your thoughts and findings so you can refer to them at a later date. You can bookmark your favorite creative methods and share them with others as well. Sharing is caring, right?
Here’s a visual of how the app works!
When I’m browsing the web or looking through books, I always come across projects that I MUST try. You can’t even imagine how long my “must try” projects list is. This past weekend I worked on a craft idea that I saw on Tumblr. Dany Reede transformed a cassette into a booklet! I didn’t assemble my cassette the exact same way as he did, but I think you guys get the gist of the idea. I’ll probably use mine as greeting cards.
