As a resident of Orange County you have probably visited the Laguna Sawdust Festival at one point during the summer. This being one of our favorite summer events, my husband and I always buy a season pass so we can go back often to enjoy a glass of wine, listen to the great local bands and browse the art and jewelry booths. Recently I discovered that the Sawdust festival offers a variety of art classes all year round which include painting, enameling, metal working and fabric dyeing. As someone always looking for new ways to have fun and be creative, I decided to sign my mother and I up for a beginning soldering class with Erin Proctor, a jewelry maker and long -time Sawdust class instructor. During the 3- hour, class Erin led us step by step through the soldering process in order to make our own silver and gemstone ring. I enjoyed the class so much that I have already signed up for the intermediate class where we fashion a silver ring with polished sea glass.
These classes are great for birthday outing, date nights or just a fun evening out with friends! Check out the schedule at sawdustfestival.org and if they don’t have a time that works for you, give them a call and they will happily schedule your own private group class.

Note that cortisol is naturally occurring and a good thing however you don’t want elevated levels and at the same time you don’t want decreased cortisol levels which make it harder to burn fat. It’s a balance
