Local Talk 2015.11.18 – Celebrating Earth’s Greatest Treasure

Have you ever thought about the people you meet in life? Those you meet from time to time at any of our HMAUS meetings, for example? This was the question posed by Terrence Young at a recent idea session. He expressed how being a member of HMAUS rewarded him with the opportunity to get to know and learn about so many interesting people—his fellow HMAUS members.

Local Talk 2015.10.19 – Let’s Have a Print Party

Holidays and greeting cards go together so we thought a Print Party would be just the right thing to do for our October Imagemakers Workshop.

A Day of Learning and Sharing at Springfest 2015

By Eugene Villaluz Jerome Koehler opened Springfest with a short video from Chris Breen announcing to the world his new job. Coming from the other side of the virtual divide, Chris said farewell to the “rest of us” and explained that as an Apple, Inc. employee, the cone of silence has now cloaked him for the time being.
