CreativeLive is the most amazing resource I've found on the net!
I can't even remember how I can across it, I think I was just searching the web for photography information, and boom!

The most recent course: 28 Days with Sue Bryce has been the most amazing and powerful one that pushes me to create and practice everyday.
It's not easy working full time and trying to get a photography business off the ground, but the common theme from all these workshops is the same: work hard and it will pay off.

Meanwhile, at our home, we finally put up our letterbox! Mail is now being delivered to our state, so Maya and Daddy have been busy around the house :). It's great to see them both working together, she loves helping.

4 today

When you spent a lot of time and effort into something and it turns out to be a disaster, you can even feel physically sick. I was out of ideas this past Sunday when our dear munchkin decided she didn't want to be part of her own birthday party.
This was the first time we did anything like this. We provided the spaces, the games, the toys, the food...but it was all too much for her.
She shows she doesn't like attention, and perhaps it was all too confusing for her...

*sigh* Moral of the story, we won't be doing this again in a hurry. To me it seems like the more you give your kids, the less they feel the need to ask and feel they need something else?
As parents we want to give, but sometimes it's best to let them ask. It is good to want stuff, it makes you strive for it.

On the kindy front, this has been a better week and hopefully she'll start to trust her teachers and worry about it less.
