vintage fabrics make pretty flowers...

We had such a blast at the Spark Soiree!! Thanks so much for everyone who showed up! It was so great getting a chance to meet you before the big event.
It was also fun to have lot of you there through the U-Stream video.

Now time for a sneak peek...

One of the things I am so excited about for Spark is Kelly McCaleb's workshop! Here is a peek Kelly captured of her class just to make your mouth water... ;)
She has such a creative eye for beautiful fabrics and actually collects vintage fabric. Well, guess what? She is letting you, Spark students, dive into her vintage fabric collection to dress up & beautify a simple tee shirt. It's definitely a hot trend right now & Kelly takes it above and beyond with her hand picked, vintage fabrics & fabulous techniques. wahoo. Can't wait!
Bring your favorite tee. Here's what Kelly says about that:
ok, for the class all they will need to bring is a t-shirt- but they will want to try and find a v-neck or scoopneck tissue-y weight one for the best look. most of us have these in our closets, if not they are five bucks at walmart, and there is always a plethora of them on the old navy clearance rack. any color would be fine- but white is a good no-fail. here's a link you could share to the exact shirt i embellished and it looks amazing- it was even less than that price in the store:scoop neck t
oh ya, if someone doesn't want to buy/bring a shirt the design can easily be made into a statement necklace- it would work great too.

announcement: We are almost full for Spark & registration closes Monday, October 26th @ 10 am mountain standard time.

*CAPTURE* (my class...)

Hi everyone! It's Jefra.

I can't tell you how excited I am for the Capture photography class I'll be teaching at Spark!! It's gonna help you see in an entirely new way and grab what you DO see.

Here are some of my pictures....and me.

and my stuff

The class will be focused on taking awesome pictures that are totally you, no matter WHAT camera you're shooting with - be it a cell phone camera (the 'toy camera' of today in my opinion) or a little point and shoot or a fancy schmancy pro-level DSLR.

What you need to know---

First off, bring a camera to class. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, in fact it can be your iPhone, just something to *capture* with.

Secondly I wanted to introduce and annouce our amazing class helpers...

the fantastic, dynamic and extraordinary Nichole Van


the beautiful, dramatic and gorgeously artistic Wynona Robison

Here are a few photographs from each of them...

first, here's Nichole - and an example of some of her work --

I think you'll find her work beautiful, dramatic and visionary. I love her!!

We shot Rhonna, Heidi and Janet for the launch of House of 3 this past winter.

Like I said, the beautiful Wynona --
I love her work. I always find it fresh, dramatic (in a totally unique way), sensitive and inspiring. Somehow it's simple and complex both at the same time.

I can't wait to meet you all and to share some amazing ideas and concepts with you as well as learn a few pointers from Wynona and Nichole.
