First time that we went into a building in New York City and there was no 13th floor. We were were so offended. What are these people? What do they do it with? Really?

Well, Guitar Goddess is in studio. Do you know heart? I love you. I haven't met her yet, but we correspond online. I've met her a couple times in New York, and she said, Great to have another class if you want you Haley styles going in New York City. All right, Well, I'm kind of curious about where What you have been doing since the last time you were at creative life. Well, because I know you're an adventurous soul, and you haven't been exciting, so it is exciting. Well, we were forced to return to the Hawaiian Islands again in January. We went in October, which is our your yearly chill out pilgrimage. My husband and I, and some good friends of IRS got married. Been, Will more married the lovely Karen Ace. And so we had to go back to Hawaii. So we went to the big island this time cause that's where the wedding Waas and we got to take a helicopter ride over the piu o event of Kilauea Volcano and I got to shoot. It wasn't an open door shooting situation in the chopper, but so I shot to the glass. But I still got some really great photos of this nice glop ing lava. It was so much fun. And what else do we do? Then? We hopped over to Maui because you can't really be on the Big Island without visiting malley. Every how crazy would that be? And the whales were there and we never been there. Why the whales were there and that was amazing. It's like things the size of cars flinging themselves out of the water and then splashing back down and you can see him from the beach. It's insane and show. Every year the whales come down from Alaska. Teoh do one of two things, mate hook up or have babies because that area through the where Maui is right across from Molokai E. So it's a nice, deep, deep, deep channel, so it's real protected and the waters will calm there. And so that's where they come, Teoh get it on and have babies. So we got to go on a whale watching adventure on a sodium zodiac kind of a raft, high speed draft situation and the whales and honestly, they came right up to the boat. But they swam right by the boat. We literally could have reached out and touched them. And I got some great shots of a baby like this is one of them right here. So that's a baby. And I took that with a millimeter zoom land so that lets you know how close they were mean. We literally could have just touched them. But that was really neat. And then I got to swim with dolphins. That was fun. Had 45 minute dolphin encounter. It was one of the best 45 minutes. My life amazing him. I can't believe how because they're big. The dolphin that I met, her name was Ko and she was over £400 huge thing, and she would come right up to me when everybody had their turn and I was in a group of like, five people and she would come right up and she could to stabilize, like with her little snout right here. And I put my hands on her face and she came up and she gave me a little kiss. It was just mind blowing. But you know how they can just position themselves in the water and not move. Seemingly was really, really neat. Well, I could talk about this for another. At least, it's morning.

… exactly what I needed for current and upcoming projects! Actually, it was much MORE than I thought I needed. Once it all sank in, I realized just how much I didn’t know, but needed to know. The training is top-notch and very effective, and just to top that off with a cherry, Lesa Snider is the most engaging instructor with whom I’ve had the privilege to learn. I can’t recommend this course, Graphic Design for Everyone enough. … talk about “clicking” with an instructor… A self-professed Southern geek/nerd with a sense of humor is a darned near perfect click between that instructor and this student. I love to learn anyway, but Lesa Snider’s classes are a wonderful blend of fun that runs throughout the entire course of technically advanced concepts and application. Where do you find a course where you laugh as much as you learn (both massively)? … a Lesa Snider course. I’ve already put the course material to good use and look forward to using the class info and skills even more in future projects.

I've been a fan of CreativeLive for along time. I've attended many classes, but this is one of my most favorite sessions. I think Lesa is a great trainer and find I am learning a great deal. I liked it so much I actually purchased this course. I would watch any course she was part of. Great graphics design course and wonderful tips.
