You don’t want to miss this once-a-year chance to save half off everything in the store!

My favorite clippers to use for flower arranging are these Japanese bonsai clippers. They are so sturdy and will cut anything from a flimsy tulip stem to a woody maple branch, all the while keeping your hands very comfortable. To keep them in shape, I clean them with some soapy water and sometimes just a drop of bleach. I always dry them really well. To keep them from rusting, I use this lovely camellia oil that comes with a special brush. I buy it from my favorite shop, Alder and Co. in Portland. Lucky for you, they have an online shop! I recommend keeping it with your clippers to keep them in tip top shape!

When you heard about Nicole’s Classes new Food Styling 101, you might have thought you would learn how to eat spaghetti while rocking the latest fashion. But this class isn’t about looking good while devouring your favorite foods. Food styling is the art of making food beautiful for photography!
While a computer and the Adobe Creative Suite are indispensable tools, they’re not the only ones you need to have to be a good designer. I teach Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign and have been a working graphic design professional for years and I have some great essentials that you definitely need to add to your toolkit!
I take hundreds of photos a week on my smart phone and these photos all have GPS data attached to them. More and more cameras are equipped with GPS devices that track where each photo is taken and this can be useful both professional and amateur photographers alike. One module that is often overlooked in Lightroom is the Map Module.

As mention is the topic, me too is also dissapointed with their 100$ Adword Coupon.
