(Film Friday) Let's.....Make it Pretty

Hello friends,

Happiest friday..... Welcome to my first official.... Film Friday. :)

I have been sharing a few small films here from time to time....  today I'm jumping in with both feet!! I am actually all-in the film this time. :)


This is a snippet I created for our Behind the Scenes eCourse. A few tips for making pretty pictures......

Oh my is the final day of class.... What a ride it's been!! We (Xanthe & I) poured so much info into the course... It was much more than we anticipated. The response to the class has been many kind words..... Big gratitude. So good.

Here's just a few testimonials from some of our lovely BTS students....

I've so loved the class - I don't want it to end :) So thank you for the inspiration and education!! -


I've been meaning to email you both regrading how much I enjoyed your class (even before seeing your email below).  Your course was perfect for boosting my creative energy and has me even more excited about my blog and the community I hope to create at Moms Who Click.  I felt like I was in a blogging rut and this was exactly what I needed.    You reminded me that I am exactly where I need to be and I realized that I'm actually in a great place (sometimes we forget that, right?). 

Anyway, your ideas for content were terrific, your tutorials on creating various elements to spruce up your blog were easy to follow and helpful and the community that your course brought together was fantastic.  I "met" so many wonderful, supportive bloggers through your course.   Thank you for bringing us all together and for sharing your gifts.  


Thank you so much for a fun filled and great learning experience these past 4 weeks! I am so surprised at what I can do now on my blog, with photoshop and all the other wonderful websites you introduced us to! You've inspired me to try new ideas for my posts.
I'm sorry to see the class come to end. It's like the feeling you get when you finish a good book and you feel like you are losing a good friend :(
See you at the next class,



The Next round of Behind the Scenes will begin August 27th. For more info on registration, pop over to our site, Reflection of You.

I have received lots of Texture Tuesday Guest Host submissions this week! Thank you so much!! I will be reviewing the submissions over the next few days.... I'm looking forward to seeing all your wonderful ideas!!

So much more to tell you about....but for now... I will leave you with my first....Film Friday..... 

See you soon!

What a lovely give some great ideas. Why did I never think of using scarves in my photo ops? That's brilliant! Thanks for sharing these wonderful tips, Kim - your front porch is so beautiful and peaceful, and I love the birds encouraging you along! :)

P.S. The Behind the Scenes class was fantastic...I'm playing catch-up on Day 11 right now, but am beyond thrilled that I took this class. Thank you!

Kim, what a beautiful video! So much inspiration - I love it! I hope you continue those "snippets". I love seeing you "in person" - you are so inspiring to me!

This was a wonderful video Kim! I have been gone so much of July I've missed the entire class, but jumped to this link when I saw your note that you were in it! Great tips and ideas but, how comfortable you have gotten in front of the camera! A natural ... and you ooze your natural warmth and friendliness. A clear picture of practice does make perfect. I will spend the month of August doing the class from day one. Have a beautiful week!

Just got to your video Kim and I absolutely love it! It's like sitting on your porch with you, watching you create your magic. It never fails to amaze me how generous you are with your talents and knowledge and how your gifts to others know, no limits.
You make the simplest of things turn into something so beautiful and you never cease to inspire and motivate me. Thanks so much for everything and the beautiful trio of textures today.

Love your videos and hope to see you in lots more - maybe with Ben curled up at your feet? ♥♥
