Between parenthood, couplehood, and work, it can be tough to fit in a little “Nurture Me” time. When was the last time you made time to improve your blog or, for that matter, yourself? Here are three great ways coming up (very) soon to nuture your blog and/or  yourself. Cultivating your creative spirit isn’t an indulgence. It’s a necessity!

Easy iPhoneography. Register now.1. iPhoneography online course with Aimee Giese at Living It to the Full (starts June 4, just $29 for two weeks)
Since getting my first iPhone, the 3G, I’ve taken thousands of photos and I’ve amassed a bunch of photo apps. But, I know there must be more to great iPhone shots than point-and-shoot and tossing on an Instagram filter. If you follow Aimee Geise on Instagram or Flickr you know what an incredibly talented photographer she is (iPhone or not). I’m taking her online course (it’s an at-your-own-pace class) to learn cool tips from an expert that I can use for better shots on my blog.

2. Blog Chat in Kerrville on June 9
San Antonio Mom Bloggers, Lisa (The Pennington Point) and Stacy (Kids Stuff World), are two of the creators and hosts for this one-day blogger and online seller (think Etsy) conference in nearby Kerville in the Texas Hill Country. For just $29.95 (the cost covers food/drink for the full day) bloggers will network, share ideas for better blogging, and tap into advice, tips, and tricks from those successfully selling online.

3. The Zoetica Project: a creative workshop for mothers
Beginning on August 4, Kim, at San Antonio Mom Blog flutie*mcd, hosts The Zoetica Project, along with local artist Brenda Burmeister. Kim and Brenda will guide moms on a journey to reconnect with their inner creative spirit – something that often gets pushed to the back of our agendas as mothers. The workshop meets one Saturday evening a month, for nine months, and includes sessions on photography, pop art, creating a life map, independent projects, and more. The workshop culminates in an art show. From now until June 30, the registration fee for The Zoetica Project is just $149 and includes food and drink at each of the nine workshops.
