    Best giveaway EVER! I’ve been dying to attend Blogshop but unfortunately it hasn’t been in my budget. I have a blog and new business which could really benefit from some Photoshop skills.

  • 2. tracy!  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:45 am

    I want to come to blogshop beause I feel a creative fire inside of me and the big, blank canvas that is the blogosphere seems to scary jump into blind! Te insipration I get from designlovefest (and others) makes me want to start, and I need the help and the love!

  • 3. Anonymous  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:46 am

    I am an art student without the budget for photoshop and winning it would be amazing! While I do not have a blog, I am considering starting one, or possibly gifting the blogshop to one of the many deserving entrants :)

  • 4. annie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:47 am

    Wow, I would LOVE to win! I just launched my new vintage shop and blog and I’d love to be able to use Photoshop to enhance my images. Thank you for the chance!

  • 5. anne  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:47 am

    Wow, this is amazing! The opportunity to attend blogshop for free?! YIKES! Need to win this. I am a freelance writer and blogger just starting out, and though I am the child of a graphic designer and have an “eye” for design, etc…, I really need professional training if I am going to set myself apart. Especially when I am just starting out. In terms of my business goals, blogshop is on the top of things I’m saving up for!

  • 6. aubry.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:47 am

    i want to come to blogshop to learn the skills that will transform all these brilliant ideas i have in my head that require some computer smarts to execute!

  • 7. Lucie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:48 am

    Wow, this is so COOL! One of my goal is to attend a blogshop, even if I’m quite far away (yay France!)

  • 8. Christina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:48 am

    I’d love to attend Blogshop because the photos and videos make it seem like a wonderful time spent with creative and beautiful people. Keeping up a unique blog for has got the be one of the most challenging parts of keeping up with my business and I’d love to turn it into a true reflection of who I am!

  • 9. Carrie @DreamGreenDIY  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:48 am

    Wowwwwwwwww…OMG I would love to win this package in order to boost my blog’s visual goodness =) Thanks for the opp!

  • 10. Holly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:49 am

    Is this real life? Hands down best giveaway ever. Blogshop is the push I need to follow my dreams! Such an amazing opportunity to be inspired by others around me and learn skills I’ve been itching to learn but don’t have the means to.

  • 11. Erin | House of Earnest  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:49 am

    This is amazing! I’ve always wanted to go to blogshop because my photoshop skills are all self taught (read: you tube videos) and I need the basic knowledge to link all of these skills together.

  • 12. Amy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:49 am

    wow! amazing giveaway…so want to take your video class. and of course i want all that fine loot too! :)

  • 13. Chelsea  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:49 am

    This would be AMAZING! All of these things are out of my budget and I would die to be able to go to Blogshop!!

  • 14. Kristin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:49 am

    I have a blog that desperately needs a breath of fresh air – I’ve been fooling around with Photoshop for a year or so but could really use some real skills!

  • 15. Megan Reed  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:49 am

    Holy WOW. I would absolutely LOVE to win a spot in a blogshop class + the additional amazingness you are giving away!

    I have a sad old blog that I would LOVE to revamp + I work for a super creative ad agency that could reallly use a girl with some fancy blogshop skills. I have been dying to attend!

  • 16. Mollika Ray  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:49 am

    Bri, I am being blown away as I write this! I can’t tell you how giddy with excitement I am; THANK YOU!

    I have been diligently reading up on BlogShop and saving my pennies since it’s inception. I started a blog with my coworker & friend about a year ago and have so much to learn!! We are trying to transition out of our 9 to 5 jobs and do something we really LOVE for our future careers! BlogShop would give us the tools, knowledge and know-how to really take the next step and change our lives. I really respect and admire you and how far you’ve come and if I could gleam one iota of that, my life would be forever changed! I am eager and determined to fulfill my dreams and believe BlogShop will help me get 100 steps closer to it!

    Thank you for presenting this opportunity to us and sorry for the essay, I’m just so excited!

    Sincerely,

    Mollika Ray :)

  • 17. Meagen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:03 am

    Best giveaway ever! I just started a blog and would love to attend a Blogshop course and win all those amazing prizes! Tweeted as well :)

  • 18. Dot  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:03 am

    I’ve been DYING to go to blogshop. I kept what I called a “stuff blog” for awhile, but never knew enough graphic designy stuff to make it really great. Have been wanting to get it back off the ground and add fashion and book posts…this could be just the thing. What a grand giveaway!

  • 19. Chrissy Flanigan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:04 am

    I like being around creative people. One of my favorite parts of my graphic design classes when I was in school was critique days. I think it’s so beneficial to get feedback and hear from fellow designers about the work you’re doing. It’s also nice to get some reassurance every now and then!

    I’ve been a avid reader of DesignLoveFest for about a year now and became obsessed with all things Bri almost instantly. You’ve just got this way of connecting with your readers and you make it seem so easy! I get excited telling people about your blog and insisting that they go see what it’s all about. You have definitely inspired me to not only start a blog, but to always be looking for ways to improve it. Sometimes I look at a way you styled your posts or other things circling the bloggosphere and think, hey I could totally do that, or maybe I could try something like this…

    Right now it’s just a fun outlet I share with my sister but what I would most be looking forward to in BlogShop is how to represent your blog as an overall brand, how to really make it your own. I’m looking forward to find out some of your design tips and tricks too! I’ve loved looking at testimonials and posts about all the great things past blogshoppers have learned.

    To make a long story shot, BlogShop just seems like a party. & one I’d like to be invited to. :)

    thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  • 20. Alex  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:04 am

    Oh wow- ever since I gave up architecture, I’m afraid my creative fire has been slowly drifting away. Reading beautiful blogs like this one keep it alive but there is nothing as exquisite as actually creating. Blogshop would give me the tools to convey my weird love of buildings and design!
    Best of luck to everyone!

  • 21. Erin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:04 am

    This giveaway is incredible! It’s been my mission for quite some time to attend a blogshop weekend, but for one reason or another, I haven’t been able to attend. Although I don’t currently have a blog, I am a working graphic designer. Because this industry is constantly changing, I believe that the learning process never ends. Having the opportunity to be inspired and learn new techniques from a couple of amazingly creative ladies is priceless in my opinion. Best of luck to all of you out there! This is one fabulous giveaway!

  • 22. Erin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:04 am

    Such a great giveaway! I rarely enter giveaways and win I do I never win. But this is the one that counts, so… Fingers Crossed! I’d love to take the Video BlogShop to prep for the launch of my new blog this fall!

  • 23. Katie Day  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:05 am

    I would love to attend blogshop! I’m a freelance editor and I would love to not only revive my blog, but I would also love to enhance my portfolio website and graphics skills for use in videos. Love love love all the giveaways and I’m so excited!! *crosses fingers*

  • 24. Tea  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:10 am

    Blogshop is the coolest thing since… ever.
    But as a poor college student, I’ve never had the chance to go!
    It would totally help with the layout of my blog (which has seen better days)

  • 25. Silky Hart  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:10 am

    Fantastic contest! I’ve been following designlovefest for quite awhile and absolutely love the modern vibe and vibrant inspiration. My goal is to create a brand new blog/site focused on art and travel. I have a working knowledge of photoshop, but I’m so eager to learn all the cool tips and tricks from the crew at designlovefest. The photos from the workshops look like it is an absolute blast. Thank you so much for offering this terrific giveaway!!!

  • 26. Claire Mueller  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:10 am

    Woah! I am a graphic designer and have been wanting to start a design centric food blog for a while now as an outlet for my creativity which, sadly, my corporate job doesn’t really provide. The other day when I saw that you’re holding a blogshop in DC I got super excited! It felt like a sign, and I thought could push me to finally start the blog that I’ve been thinking about for way too long! Blogshop isn’t an adventure that I can afford right now so this giveaway would be such an amazing gift.

    xo Claire

  • 27. Ali  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:10 am

    woah, i don’t even know where to start.

    i just graduated from design school and am taking quite a leap and starting my own freelance gig right off the bat! it’s totally scary but it’s so important to me that i never lose my excitement for design, and being able to control my work days (to some extent) and manage myself really has seemed like the way to do it. don’t want to lose that fire, ya know?

    i’ve been lucky enough to work with great clients and i’ve met some amazing people, but i really need to focus on my own brand, including my blog, even if just for a weekend. i’m finding that sometimes the things that need to be designed for myself take a waaaay backseat to the things i am designing for other people. i think a weekend of blogshop, plus all of these other amazing design tools, would really help me get organized and excited about where things are going. i mean a wacom tablet, what! i need one sooo badly!

    anyways, thank you for hosting this giveaway. i’d be so happy to win! xx

  • 28. Allison  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:11 am

    Insanity! These items are absolutely gorgeous; that laptop case is definitely part of my dream wish list. I’ve always been shy about artsy things — I write, but I’ve never been able to draw so I left everything visual to the rest of my talented family. I recently decided to give blogging a try, though, because I do love photography and design and beautiful things, and I love to learn about them so blogging has been a great way to unpretentiously (I hope) begin pursuing that, and Blogshop would be an amazing and, I think, inspiring and encouraging opportunity to continue that.

  • 29. Tiff Reed  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:11 am

    I’ve been wanting to attend a Blogshop soooo bad! I’m a graphic designer and really want to start a blog of my favorite things. I mostly design what my clients want, so it would be my creative outlet of what I want. I think going to a blogshop would be the greatest thing ever! And I also love meeting new creatives:)

  • 30. Christie Jones  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:11 am

    OH MY GOODNESS. Sorry for the caps but I’m extremely excited. I just started a blog in January and attending BlogShop is one of my dreams. I am continually inspired and blown away by the positive things I hear about it and I would so love to be part of it.
    Either way, thanks for inspiring me Bri!

  • 31. Cady  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:11 am

    This made me so excited I may or may not have peed a little. I’m a new blogger – just started this summer as a way to document our pregnancy. Blogshop is coming to DC where we live so I’d LOVE to attend. And if I can’t drink wine for the next four months, at least I could have a great book to read and learn photoshop!!

  • 32. Que  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:12 am

    I NEED to attend blogshop. I’ve had a site (which is currently under construction) since 2007. It’s gone through so many life cycles, growing right along with me.

    But it’s time for it to say exactly what I want it to say…about me, for me…even to me. I’m experiencing so much weighted change in my life that I’ve felt too heavy to start my fresh start (if that makes sense).

    Blogshop would give me so much more than just the skills I need to change my site. I know for sure that it’ll (re-)light my fire (baby!). **fingers crossed**

  • 33. tricia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:12 am

    i’m looking for ways to be creative outside of my 9-5. to express myself in ways beyond my design life at work. this prize would definitely help!

  • 34. Karen A.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:13 am

    This giveaway is so awesome! I want it because I have been blogging for about 3 months and I would like to make it better and prettier and more professional looking :) I hope I win!

  • 35. Regan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:13 am

    I want to win this more than any give-away ever! I’m just starting to do the ground work needed to get a blog started, and I think the things I learn at blogshop will not only inspire me but help me get my blog launched in a really big way. Def gonna need two entries for this bad boy. Just tweeted all about it!

  • 36. Monarose Ryan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:13 am

    This is a FANTASTIC opportunity that I am absolutely thrilled about! Blogshop reads like a dream class and experience for learning new things and meeting new people — it also sounds endlessly inspiring! I would love to learn how to do more in Ps (including video editing)! Best luck to everyone! And thank you, Bri, for such an amazing opportunity!!!

  • 37. Anonymous  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:24 am

    I have been working at home as a graphic designer for a small firm since I’ve graduated college. While I am pretty confident in my inDesign and Illustrator abilities I have ALWAYS struggled in photoshop, which is super duper embarrassing to admit as a GD. This has limited my creativity, because lets face it, photoshop is pretty necessary. I think this workshop will not only help my blog, but my overall design abilities.

    Got my pixel pushing fingers crossed that I win this super generous giveaway!

  • 38. Pinky  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:24 am

    I would LOVE to be the lucky winner. The blogshop is by far the best giveaway, followed by the leather laptop case. Yeeezz, they are all great items. Thanks for the opportunity!!!

  • 39. Priscilla Vega  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:24 am

    My Goodness!! My inner blogess is jumping with glee! I have had my own blog for a little over a year now but I’m in need of some major blogging bootcamp to spruce it up with all the glitz and glamour that it deserves. So far, I’m all self-taught but I know I would just relish at the opportunity to take my blog to the next level.

    thank you for hosting this amazing giveaway!

  • 40. Monica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:24 am

    First of all, thank you for inspiring so many people through your blog and workshops. Your enthusiasm and verve are evident, and gives many of us that extra jolt in our own creative work!

    I’m always looking for new opportunities to learn and have been planning to attend BlogShop. This seemed like a great chance to do so!

    Congrats on all your work, and wish you much continued success.

  • 43. Haleigh Steere  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:25 am

    SaWEEET! I’m a small town Iowa girl who started a blog and does freelance design. I have so many ideas for it and just need help executing and making it happen. I have been wanting to come to a blogshop class for about a year now and every time it seems to work with my schedule- they sell out! I would love to branch out and be able to quite my “day job” and work doing what I love…blogging, being creative, designing, inspiring, traveling, fashion and just making things pretty! I think having this opportunity to be a part of blogshop would open a new door or creativity for me. I get excited just thinking about it! I love to learn and bounce off ideas from others to create new ideas and concept for design in all areas. I think this would be an amazing opportunity for myself, an iowa midwest girl, to learn from of the best. I want my blog & work to showcase my personality and draw in followers that will help me grow as a designer and individual. Thanks again for this sweet opportunity!

  • 44. Sara C.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:25 am

    I’m gearing up to start my own firm and having a blog that reflects my style, process, failures, and triumphs professionally and personally is a valuable asset to connect to the design community and clients. Blogshop will help me with the tricks of the blog trade that I lack so that my existing blog will go from mundane to marvelous!

  • 45. Xixia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:26 am

    Bri,

    Oh goodness…this is truly an amazing giveaway. Thank you so much for sharing this. Anyone would be lucky to win these things.

    I would love for the opportunity to come to blogshop because I started a blog almost three months ago (oh my gosh…has it been that long already?!), and while I am happy with it, I would love for the opportunity to learn more tricks to spruce up my images and my brand. I want for people who visit my blog to truly enjoy their stay and find something they can connect with or apply or just enjoy learning. There’s a lot of blogs that I see out there which have amazing content, but can be a little bit hard to get through because there’s not enough visual appeal to lure readers in. Thus, I want to make my blog continually visually enticing, and taking a few lessons at blogshop would help that immensely.

    Oh, and of course, I would love to meet you, Bri, and the amazing people you work with. You guys all look so chill and such fun to hang out with. Would love this opportunity!

    Good luck to everyone!

  • 47. Kaitlyn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:26 am

    What an awesome giveaway! I would love to go to blogshop — My blog just passed its first birthday and could use a sprucing up! I’m always wanting to learn more about what it takes to be a successful blogger.

  • 48. Brooke Danielle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:26 am

    What an oh-so fabulous giveaway!! Would be such a blessing to win and a special opportunity to enhance my current blog and of course share the love :)
    (Fingers crossed!!)

  • 49. Lizzy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:26 am

    Dearest Bri, I would loooooove to come to blogshop to learn from the best, what it takes to have an online presence. I’m nervous to take that leap into blogging BUT I’m ready!! Let’s just say, Christmas would come early for this kid. ;0)

  • 50. Stephanie T.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:26 am

    My eye immediately went to the C6 and tablet!! Working off my “student discounted” CS4 for the past 4 years has been totally fine, but I would love to be able to stretch my design muscles and really learn all of the new, snazzy things that Photoshop has to offer. And what better way to learn those things in the fantastic Blogshop. It’s time to get real!

  • 51. Jo Meyers  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:26 am

    OH I could use this so bad it’s not even funny! SO, I wrote a haiku… Aspiring blogger and accidental webmaster pleas:

  • 52. Christa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:26 am

    I am graphic designer looking to perfect my photoshop skills! I admire your site so much and have been looking to expand onto a real blog rather than my little dinky tumblr. I have been exploring your blogspot website for awhile now, but am no where near financially ready to commit :( I would love love love to learn more from you and those amazing tools!

  • 53. Natasha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:27 am

    Good Gosh! This is such a dreamy giveaway!!! I want to come to blogshop so that I can learn new PS tricks, meet people in the ATL area with similar blogging interests, and have an all around once in a lifetime experience hanging with Bri and her compatriots!!! I’m such a huge DLF fan and would absolutely faint three times in a row if chosen as the winner of this giveaway!

  • 54. Kikee  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:27 am

    Wow, amazing! :) I have been blogging for the past 5 years but I think that it would be great to learn some new things. Thank you for the great opportunity!

  • 55. juliet  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:27 am

    This giveaway is insane! I’ve wanted to go to blogshop since the beginning! I don’t have a blog, but have contemplated starting one for years. Blogshop would give me the confidence I need to get going! Thanks!!!

  • 56. Rebecca in NC  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:28 am

    What an awesome giveaway! I would love to win it and attend blogshop. I started a public blog in October 2011 and don’t know how to spruce it up. In fact, I don’t even know what I want it to look like — it’s just hard to play around with design elements when I don’t know how to do the technical shtuff.

  • 57. Natalie Hotaling  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:28 am

    I’ve been posting daily on my blog, Dear Mom, for over a year now, and blogging has really changed my life. I am currently in college, and my blog is a way for my to share the things I am doing, what I am interested in and what I am working on with both the people I love and strangers from around the world. Having a blog made me realize what I want to do in life: document and share things with people. Winning this giveaway would be the next step for me, and it has been my dream to go to BlogShop (definitely not doable on a college budget!). Thanks so much for this opportunity.

  • 58. erin s.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:28 am

    I’ve been blogging for a couple years now and am starting to feel like I’m in a real rut. I crave the inspiration and collaboration needed to continue my creative journey. Bold ideas and creative intelligence need sustenance to grow—Blogshop is just what I need to flourish!

  • 59. Krista McPhee  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:28 am

    I’m in the process of beginning a web design/coding business. In the works for me is a personal site with a blog. This would be a dream dream dream!!! Aside from being my dream I think it will nudge me along further and motivate me to start NOW!!

  • 60. Hannah B  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:28 am

    I never enter give-aways but as soon as I saw this I knew I had to be a part of it. I’ve been craving to go to a blog shop for a long time. Although I’m a graphic designer, I know there is so much I could learn from the experience and the people I would meet would have a lasting impact on my life. I’m slowly dipping my toes into blogging and am almost ready to launch my own. It would be a dream come true to be a part of blog shop.

  • 61. kat  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:28 am

    hello! i opened up a letterpress business, but i am having trouble sprucing up the blog portion of my site and i would love ideas on how to improve. i’d love to learn how blogging and having a business can go hand in hand. :) thanks for this amazing giveaway! i’d LOVE to go to blogshop sometime!

  • 62. Stephanie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:28 am

    I would love, love, love to win this! Although I’m pretty up to date on my Photoshop skills, I always encourage learning more. Plus I would welcome tips on how to enhance my blog, boost my photography skills and incorporate some fun video into the mix! What a wonderful giveaway! Whoever wins is one lucky individual. Cheers!

  • 63. Tobe | Because It's Awesome  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:29 am

    this. is. amazing. i’d love to attend blogshop because who doesn’t want to learn from the best!?!!?

  • 64. kayla @ exquisite banana  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:29 am

    Holy Wow!!! What a give-a-way. I would love to win a spot in blogshop because I just launched my photography business and would put all of the tips to immediate use. I can’t afford to make the investment quite yet, so having the opportunity to attend (plus all of these other amazing goodies!) would put the hugest smile on my face. I’m quite certain I’d have giddy, over-the-moon-with-excitement heart palpitations if I was selected. Thank you to Bri and sponsors for the incredible opportunity!

  • 65. Keely Reyes  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:29 am

    I have been blogging for about a year, and I do have a design background, but I could use help in the photo and video department. This is something I would never be able to pay for on my own, what a great gift! Plus it is always a bonus to meet other creative people!

  • 66. LARY@ Inspiration Nook  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:29 am

    OH MY GOD! Crossing my fingers and toes for this one. I would love to win to learn all of you guys tricks to take my blog to the next level. I’ve learned so much in the year and a half of blogging but blog-shop will be the cherry on top and much more! My birthday is on Sunday maybe it will bring me luck too :)

  • 67. Katya  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:29 am

    I want to come to Blogshop because I’ve been endlessly inspired by the design methods of the wonderful ladies who teach the workshop, and I’d love to really stretch my Photoshop muscles! Having a stronger basis in Photoshop would really help me get my blog off the ground. Also tweeted as @seaforanswers.

  • 68. Rachel Tobias  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:29 am

    I just started a new blog and am really looking to take it to the next level! I want to be able to inspire people with my own found treasures the way you do through designlovefest! :) xoxo

  • 69. Maren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:29 am

    This is an amazing giveaway — since I heard about it months ago I have wanted to attend Blogshop. I do have my own blog, but my Photoshop skills are extremely limited, so this would be an unbelievable skill to learn!

  • 70. Kayleigh  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:30 am

    This giveaway is AMAZING! I would love to attend BlogShop because I am so inspired by what I see out there (including this blog!!), but I’m at a loss for where to start with a blog of my own. I want to make my own blog so that I can start adding creativity instead of just taking it… but I want to make it awesome, so some skill-learning would be useful.

  • 71. Annabel P.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:30 am

    Just… WOW.
    Such an amazing opportunity! I would never be able to afford all of this as an art student but you bet I would spend every penny in my bank to get down to London for the blogshop!! :D
    Thank you, you wonderful woman you! :)
    *praying to win*
    xoxo

  • 72. Stephanie Fuqua  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:31 am

    I was just looking at coming to the Atlanta blogshop and this would be a lovely way to go- free! I started my blog (phaniepack) in October, but I haven’t really had time or the knowledge to expand it and I would love to go!

  • 73. Julia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:31 am

    blogshop looks like such a blast, I am struggling with my first personal blog and I write a blog professionally and I think the skills you guys offer will definitely inspire my professional work and get me excited about my personal attempt as well. Keeping my fingers crossed!

  • 74. Lauren G  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:31 am

    Great giveaway! I would love to win to improve the little blog I just started!

  • 75. Erin M.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:31 am

    What an awesome giveaway! I have always wanted to attend Blogshop so that I can spruce up my blog and freshen up on my design skills but unfortunately haven’t had the funds. This would be a dream!

  • 76. Jenna Stratman  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:31 am

    This is amazing!!! Ah, I get a little happy feeling inside of me every time I read your blog, but this giveaway is just incredible!
    Myself and a small team are launching something called Regale, which will be at regalemag.com – it’s a mag/blog for millennials trying to thrive in the real world…we’re so excited for the launch, but this would send the team over the moon! Thanks so much for posting this giveaway, Bri!! (I’ll be tweeting about it, too!)

  • 77. meeka  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:31 am

    I have an existing blog, but the skills from the workshop would not only boost our blog, but enhance all of my abilities in areas that I love. What a great giveaway, thank you for the opportunity!

  • 78. Michelle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:31 am

    This is the best giveaway ever! I’ve been blogging for almost 4 years and I’ve loved every second of it. For the past year or so, I’ve been feeling like I could do so much more with my blog, but I just don’t know what. Blogshop would be the perfect push to learn the skills that I need to take my blog to the next level.

    Plus, I just switched my major to Public Relations, so learning every single thing from Blogshop would really help me out in terms of experience that I can bring to my classes as well!

  • 79. madeleine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:31 am

    wow-this is AMAZING! I would LOVE to attend blogshop to learn how to pretty up my brand-new blog!!!

  • 80. Tanya  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:31 am

  • 82. Elizabeth  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Wow, totally amazing!!!! This would be a great way to gather inspiration hands down!

  • 83. Leigh-Ann Friedel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Wow Bri, this is a crazy giveaway! It’s very exciting.

    I have blogged on and off for years just for kicks, but now I want to make it a consistent thing in my life. So I just started a new blog and I’m ready to go! I use Photoshop often but I love discovering new tricks with it, and that is why I’d love to attend Blogshop!! Also, meeting new people in my city (DC for me) would a great way to network, talk about future collaborations, and make friends. I can’t think of anything better. :)

  • 84. Ann  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    What an awesome giveaway! I started my vintage inspired style blog a year ago and would love to attend a Blogshop class to level up my design skills.

    I have pretty proficient Photoshop skills that I learned in high school and my early years of college. Unfortunately, my day job doesn’t really afford me the chance to flex my creative muscles, so what better way than to collaborate and learn from other fabulous bloggers and designers?

  • 85. Elizabeth V.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    I would absolutely love to be able to attend blogshop! I’ve been following Design Love Fest for months now and it has inspired me to start a blog of my own. I’m new and I would love to be able to learn more to improve it. Cheers!

  • 86. Laura  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    What a great contest, Bri! Though I’m a blogger, I’m more of a writer. I would like to learn more about how to express myself and my brand more visually and dynamically for the web. That’s what blogshop is all about, right? Well, that and having fun and this girl can never say no to more fun.

  • 87. Wren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    I am stuck in educational limbo with two semesters left to earn my master’s degree in genetic counseling…Do you know what is missing from genetic counseling? Glitter and fun and beauty and sequins and design and photography and blogs and bows and recipes and color and clothes and tights and type and cameras and layouts and crafts and lipstick and fun.

    THAT IS WHY I MUST WIN. Pretty please;).

  • 88. Esther Hahn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    I want to come to a video blogshop because videos in blogs really will be the next step for every blog — and I don’t want to be left behind!

  • 89. Monica Schrock  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Wow! This is amazing. I’ve been wanting to attend a blogshop for awhile to learn more ways to spruce up my blog, Low Impact Betty. I love to write, and learning creative ways to use images, from two ladies that do it so well, would help me engage with my readers even more. Thanks for all the help you give on your blog. If I win, I hope to use these tools to help my readers as much as you help us :)

  • 92. justine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    i would LOVE to go to blogshop – i’ve been thinking and planning on starting my own blog for over a year and attending might be the kick in the butt that i need to actually make it happen. i’ve been saving up for photoshop, so it would be AMAZING to win a copy (and learn how to really use it).

    this is seriously the best giveaway ever and winning would be so awesome.

  • 93. Mallory  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    This is AMAZING, Bri! I absolutely love your blog and have been wanting to go to blogshop for a while. I’ve had a blog for a couple of years but would love to get more serious about it in order to showcase my styling and event design. It would be totally beyond to win this! And all those goodies too – ah!

  • 94. Pam  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    I would LOVE the opportunity to go to blogshop because I am an aspiring blogger writing about everything from travel to food and beyond! I am always inspired when I watch the recap videos of each blogshop class… so much that I’ve taken up filming and trying to recreate the fun ideas that come from what I see. I really hope I win, but regardless, this is an amazing opportunity for one lucky individual! Way to go Bri!

  • 95. Migdalia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    Oh swoon. I’ve been trying to save money to go to one of these since I came across your site oh so long ago. But every time I have just the right amount of cash, it fills up. Or something happens that I can no longer afford it. Always so heart breaking.

    I’ve had OHMYDALIA for almost two years now, but I admire what you do and must learn Photoshop. I love the way you do it, the environment, how much fun it looks. It would be an absolute dream.

    I’ve tried to learn P.shop before from my graphic design boyfriend, but he gets “hot key” happy and always loses me. I need to be in a learning environment with like minds. I’d be so grateful if I were chosen to win this amazing contest.

    I’d also pass out.

    *crosses fingers*

  • 96. Sophie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

  • 97. Natalie Wise  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:32 am

    WOW! I’d LOVE to win because my fashion blog is too dated for my current style, and I really need to amp up the photographs and start taking off! What gorgeous goodies. Thank you to all of the sponsors!

  • 98. Samantha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:33 am

    This would be an amazing win. It’s such a great package and would really be the push I need to be more creative in life and work.

    The blogshop alone would be so great just to be surrounded by other creatives. I would love the excuse to visit any of those cities as well, make it a trip of learning and exploring and eating my way through perhaps a new city.

    I want the chance to show what I can do, and harness my creative ideas into something magical for my own blog. I want to be pushed to do better, to achieve something more colourful and to be taught by some of the best professionals in the blogosphere would be an honour!

Snagit only goes so far..and I really feel I can take my creative outlet to a whole new amazing level…Thank you for this amazing opportunity!!!!!!!!

I’ve been dying to go but there always seems to be something else that pops up… like car maintenance or now by growing baby belly and its needs for little things like out of pocket insurance. It would be a great way to gain inspiration to show our newest addition in super style.

    I would love to attend a blogshop workshop because I need to learn how to spruce up my blog. Right now, it’s just…”eh.” However, I don’t know how to do all the things one could do with a blog — I literally just know how to write and post photos and that’s it. Sooooo…I would love to have the opportunity to learn how to add more life to my blog. Plus, I’m much more of a hand-ons learner that a textbook wouldn’t work for me. I need to hear, see, and try it. Pick me pretty please!!! :)

Yes, I have my itsy bitsy newborn of a blog that could really use some help, but I think the knowledge and experience to be obtained at Blogshop would be invaluable to me in carving my career path into a marketing world.
    I want to feel inspired, and I know it will come in spades at Blogshop.

    DEAR GOD!? Why do I want to win – let me count the ways! Well (1) I spend hours sifting through DLF and try to copy the techniques for my own blog and I feel like I’m just not getting “it”. (2) I am trying to work up the courage to quit my day job and try to dedicate all my time, money and energy to painting! (3) Good design makes the world a much more beautiful place (4) I want to see Bri’s hair in real life (5) That watercolor scarf is WAY fricking cute!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win this, you guys! And thanks for continuing to inspire me on a day-to-day-to-day basis!

  • 127. Kivi  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:46 am

    While my photography skills have evolved over time, there is still so much I’m sure I could learn about blogging and photo editing.

    … in reality though I know I won’t be able to come to Blogshop unless it comes to me :) But it would be such a nice idea to win all of the other goodies. Poor little starving artist me. It would be the first wonderful thing to happen to me after moving to a new country a month ago. It would give me hope. Hope that I can practice my photography – it’s the PS license which I would love to have – and also that I can grow my blog little by little.

    Thank you for the opportunity in either case!

    Thank you and good luck to all!

  • 130. Neha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:46 am

    My eyes could not have gotten any wider or brighter after seeing this! I’m a recent graphic design graduate but even at this stage I know there’s more tips and tricks for me to learn (I don’t think any designer will ever finish learning!).

    I’ve established my blog predominantly as an image based dumping ground of sorts and now I would love to push it to the next level, and what better way than with blogshop’s help of course ♥

  • 131. Elle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:46 am

    I am a Creative Director, and last year I became extremely beaten down emotionally and artistically through a really terrible individual who is (thankfully) no longer with the company. One day I found your blog through Pinterest and it was like a breath of fresh passion. Your blog continually inspires me, and I have found my renewed passion for not only my job, but all things creative. Especially your posts about finding your style and the moment when things really start to click. I feel like I’m right on the cusp, and my design work is getting stronger buy the day (Some was even featured in a magazine recently!). Anyway, I would love to win this giveaway to have not only some amazing tools to continue pushing myself, but to soak up the inspiration in person and learn some of the little tips and tricks that make designlovefest so darn awesome. We’re about to launch our new website & blog, and I want to make it a work I am more than proud of!

    WOW! Attending blogshop would be a fantastic opportunity to develop the blog my roommate and I have started. We just moved in to our very first apartment in NYC, and are looking forward to documenting life in the city that never sleeps. I am a graphic designer and she is an aspiring writer, so we know what we want the blog to look like and say, but we need your expert guidance & style on how to get there.. This would be the perfect way for us to find our voice in the bloggersphere, armed with a fabulous arsenal of new school supplies!

  • 139. miss kelly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:47 am

    I began reading your blog for the mojo that you have to transform an ordinary photo or type into gold. As you and your blog grew, I scurried back for insightful advice and inspiration on how to be your true self online and Making “it” Happen, which motivates me through the monotony of the cube life. I jot down all inspiring quotes and advice into a book that I’m “writing” for my daughter should there ever be a moment when I am not able to deliver it first hand. It seems that embedded in every quote is this underlying tone of “Girl Power” or “Do It Yourself-ness” or a “Be You” attitude. I began writing this book, per say, 2 years ago when I started my first job in Corporate (against the spirit of my indie designer-self). And I feel like I am pitching my daughter a lie with the quotes that I hold dear. Jotting down declarations that I myself am acknowledging & believing, yet not following. Over the years I have found myself getting more & more comfortable with the steady income and full schedule. When I realized that I have conformed to the norm (insert horror movie music). I daily see myself & spark slipping away into a market that is only concerned with appeasing the mass markets. I have continued to create pieces for my own line of accessories after work hours into the wee morning, but it is not nearly as in depth as I would love it to be. I would love the opportunity to gain the wisdom of how to actually be the woman, designer, and blogger that Makes Things Happen and Keeps it Happening. Not just for myself, but for my daughter. Because there is nothing worse than a mother that ONLY talks the talk, without walking the walk. Thanks for extending this giveaway.
    My Favorite item has to be Joy’s Blog Inc. I read Creative Inc. daily and carry it with me just in case I need a resource or advice. I have been anticipating it’s release.

    Regardless of it I win, I hope to see you in Atlanta!
    Cheers!

    I’m a young architect on the brink of starting my own design consulting business and need some serious help with my online voice and blog skills. I would LOVE for the chance attend blogshop and learn from you! Thank you so much for this give away and for your blog – it’s so inspiring on so many levels.

  • 141. Mullica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:47 am

    I want to go to blogshop because I love your site and I love following your work. I’m also very interested in moving away from Tumblr and establishing my own real blog in the blog world!

  • 142. Beth Caster  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:47 am

    I need some support in jump starting this into the next level! and this makes me very excited!!

  • 143. Jess  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:48 am

    Amazing giveaway!!!

    I’d love to attend blogshop since I started blogging regularly about 4 months ago (by regularly I mean 5 days a week) – and am still pretty much a novice when it comes to photoshop! (I use elements). I’d love to learn ways to really create a cohesive brand image for the blog, and also to meet and network with other bloggers!

  • 144. Jillian  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:48 am

    Blogshop would teach me so many things that would be legitimately usable in my everyday life & in my near future endeavors–especially contributing to the family business being planned with my parents & sisters. So sign me up for the ‘starter kit’ of all things good!

  • 145. Alyssa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:48 am

    Seriously DYING over this giveaway!! I’m fairly sure that I would pass out if I won this! I’ve been wanting to take Blogshop for as long as you’ve been offering them, Bri! I just haven’t been able to afford it, and hello, this giveaway would be the perfect fix! I just started my blog, haven’t even written a post yet. I have a little bit of OCD and want it to be perfect and Blogshop would make it fun and perfect and exciting! My fingers are crossed, and so are my toes!

  • 146. Andrea Cenon  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:48 am

    Hello!

    I want to attend Blogshop, because I want to gear myself with Photoshop skills, so I can conquer the land of graphic design and blogging. Blogshop will fill my hands with tips and tricks that will cultivate my design mind. Ultimately building my identity as a designer. In the environment Blogshop provides, I know that I can thrive in a different and fresher way than I would in a college classroom. Blogshop takes out the pressure of academic success and competition. With a new approach on learning, I know that I will come out with a sense of confidence in myself as a designer and blogger. Maybe even learn more about myself as a person… :)? I want to win this opportunity, because it’s TOO good to be true!

  • 147. Kelcey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:48 am

    Goodness gracious. A fellow Angeleno with so much good dirt to share?!? How can I not enter! I’m a recent-ish grad looking for a way to get the heck out of the crappy 9-5 I’ve landed, and blogshop seems like a great start! Also, HOLY SCHMOLEY those colors are fantastic.

  • 148. Katie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:48 am

    oh snap holy jesus mary and joseph! this giveaway is craaaazy. I’ve actually been setting money aside so i can’t get my booty in one of your future nyc classes!! I’ve had a blog for a few years and have been slowly teaching myself photoshop and photography to make it better and better. your blog has been an amazing source of happy and inspiration to me!! time to tweet tweet tweet about this!

  • 149. Jodi  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:48 am

    ummm, this might be the most amazing giveaway EVER.

    i would love to go to blogshop!! i’ve been daydreaming about re-vamping my blog for the past few days and feel a little stuck. i’m sure blogshop would be just the thing to get me going!

  • 150. Celeste  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:48 am

    I think I’m a pretty interesting person. I went to school for painting, I’ve traveled all over the globe and the answer to what I’m thinking at any given moment is “what am I going to be eating next?” I love art, I love culture, I love fashion, I looove food. I spend 85% of my time making excel spreadsheets about taxes and accounting. I need to take creative control of my life! I’ve tinkered a little on tumblr but nothing serious yet. I want to understand blogging better and have the photoshop and design skills to stay current in the artworld and our generation’s culture. (I’m turning 30, yikes! or yay?) I have heard only good things about blogshop and the community of people involved. I want to go to there.

  • 151. Jenny @ Hank + Hunt  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:48 am

    I would die to win this! I am ready to step up my blog game and this would be an incredible opportunity to learn from amazingness! Breakin’ into the big time takes skills and this is just what I need! I would double whammy it it with the video class in SF and totally rock it out. Oh the places I could go!
    Thanks for this incredible giveaway!

  • 152. Whitney  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:49 am

    This year I had plans for an awesome vacation and also knew that it was time to upgrade my camera. I upgraded to a canon 5d, and then on a whim decided to sign up for feet first. I left wanting to do the full blogshop, but a few weeks later my camera was stolen thus requiring a budget re-balance.

    My blog is currently lacking direction and I feel that blogshop could be the thing to get me out of that rut!

  • 153. jam  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:49 am

    I’m trying to redesign my old portfolio / blog site. It’s been a while since I even used Photoshop so I’m a little rusty. The pass to blogshop would be excellent, and the tablet and actual photoshop software would just be even better.

    *Crosses fingers*

  • 154. Amy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:49 am

    I am a student in a small town who just started my blog this summer with the goal of improving my photo and design skills. What a awesome giveaway!!! I have always dreamed of attending blogshop class! To learn from the best with other creatives sounds like a dream come true!

  • 155. Caitlin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:49 am

    I would love to learn from such a creative class! My blog needs some sprucing and revamping for sure and it’s finally starting to grow! I think the blog shop is just what it needs! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 156. Rhianna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:49 am

I would LOVE a chance to go to blogshop… not to mention be the proud owner of any of those other awesome products! I’m trying to find my “niche” in the blogging world and blog regularly with my new blog I started with my partner. Blogshop would definitely help me narrow my focus and teach me how to provide pretty & functional content. I can’t even believe this giveaway… are you sure you’re allowed to give away this. much. stuff.(!!!)

    PS – I tweeted about this too! (@ree_ann_uhh)

  • 157. Pankita Desai  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:49 am

    Bri,

    This giveaway is amazing! I want to come to blogshop because I want to find the inspiration needed to spruce up my blog. I always stray away from it and worry about my content so I would love to use blogshop as my source of inspiration. Plus having you as a teacher would be a super bonus!

    Thanks for this giveaway!

  • 158. Krystle Lohmann  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:49 am

  • 160. Marie B  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:49 am

    WOW! Best giveaway ever! I’ve been dreaming of attending and saving up for blogshop. After years of religiously reading blogs and wanting to start my own but feeling like I didn’t have the skills to make it look and function perfectly, I finally just dived in a month ago and let it be messy and simple. I’d love to attend blogshop and learn the skills and find inspiration to help design my blog to be what I know it can be. My goal is to leave my day job to pursue my photography full time, and I think blogshop and having my blog in a strong place could give me that confidence. I’d also love that advance copy of Blog, Inc! Thanks, Bri!

  • 161. Samantha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:49 am

  • 163. Amy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:50 am

    i have always had a keen interest on graphic design and makin’ magic on photoshop, but i’ve only been admiring from afar. for the longest time, i pursued a degree that i knew would make my family happy, even though it wasn’t really what I wanted to do with my life. i spent five years switching from one technical degree to another, trying to make them happy. now that i’m out of there, i want to be able to do something for myself: pursue my creative side–and that’s starting with graphic design. i want to start a blog to express this side of me that’s been tucked away for so long… and after seeing all the fun and the magic from iheartblogshop’s facebook and blog, i would love to be apart of it too. i am sure blogshop is everything i would hope for it to be–and more! i’m ready to change my life! also, because that scarf looks super rad!

  • 164. Ciara Bird  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:50 am

  • 165. April  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:50 am

    First of all, Blogshop was/is a brilliant idea and I need to be a part of it! Secondly, I just started blogging to escape my mundane office job and I really enjoy it! I want to take my blog to the next level and just learn as much as I can from the Blogshop pros! Pick me please!!!

  • 166. Brianna W  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:50 am

    This giveaway is amazing! I would love love love to attend Blogshop because I’ve recently gone freelance in photography, having wanting to for a while now. Blogshop would be a great way for me add more personality to my website and blogs.

    Thanks so much!

  • 167. Naomi  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:51 am

    I would love to attend blogshop because I’ve tried starting a blog a bunch of times with no success. I am hoping with an oppertunity to attend blogshop i can start a new blog, that is successful, thanks to the inspiration provided there! Thats about it!

  • 168. Ana  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:51 am

    I am a Creative Director, and last year I became extremely beaten down emotionally and artistically through a really terrible individual who is (thankfully) no longer with the company. One day I found your blog through Pinterest and it was like a breath of fresh passion. Your blog continually inspires me, and I have found my renewed passion for not only my job, but all things creative. Especially your posts about finding your style and the moment when things really start to click. I feel like I’m right on the cusp, and my design work is getting stronger buy the day (Some was even featured in a magazine recently!). Anyway, I would love to win this giveaway to have not only some amazing tools to continue pushing myself, but to soak up the inspiration in person and learn some of the little tips and tricks that make designlovefest so darn awesome. We’re about to launch our new website & blog, and I want to make it a work I am more than proud of!

  • 170. caroline  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:51 am

    oh man oh man oh man!!! i live in new york and have missed out on every last nyc blogshop due to a lack of lightening-speed clicking. i am trying to get my small biz up off the ground… i quickly hashed together a dire site solely on my knowledge of pages collage-making & screen-shoting… just because i had clients willing to pay and no content or website to send them! i feel as if blogshop is just what i need to take my efforts to the next level. new-york-city-living makes the give-away part extra perfect. ….all with a scarf thrown in! can’t beat that.

  • 171. Anwen Elizabeth  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:51 am

    I want to come to Blogshop because I have a blog that is in dire need of some serious sprucing up! I can’t even imagine the amazing difference Blogshop would make in my blog, and in my life! The rest of the items in the giveaway are to die for too…hope hope HOPE I win!!

    P.S. I tweeted the phrase too! @anwen_elizabeth

  • 173. Claudia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:52 am

    Holy giveaway, Batman! I’m a writer/reporter/food blogger by profession who is out of her element when it comes to creating striking visuals. I love good design, but I just don’t even know where to begin. Would love help sprucing up my portfolio site and turning it into a full-fledged blog to really show off my talents — and hopefully, that will lead to some new career opportunities.

  • 174. Beth  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:52 am

    This is the biggest giveaway I’ve ever seen on any blog! Incredible. I’ve been blogging for two years, but recently decided to open an etsy store, and travel/lifestyle site, with my boyfriend. So far I’ve learned to operate a DSLR some suitably, have watched a zillion Youtube movies on Photoshop techniques and have enrolled in several e-classes, so this class would be a dream. The Wacom tablet doesn’t look too shabby either. :)

  • 175. Dale  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:52 am

    This is the best giveaway! I’m getting into graphic design, and the wacom tablet and Blogshop ticket have been on my wishlist for a while. I’ve been wanting to start a blog, and just need that kick in the right direction!

  • 176. Meghan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:52 am

    I would love to win this giveaway because I am going to be majoring in graphic design at FSU and have just started a blog, design shine! I started design shine to build a network and to share design and things that inspire me. Attending a blogshop would be a wonderful experience because I love DESIGNLOVEFEST, her style is exactly what I hope to one day emulate. While the entire package is an amazing giveaway, my favorite item would be the Photoshop CS6! I have been wanting that program for a while and will eventually need it when I start at FSU soon. Blogshop would really help me get ahead in both the blogging & design world!

    Thank you for offering such an amazing opportunity,
    Meghan

    I have been DYING to go to Blogshop! Not to mention the other amazing parts of this giveaway.. thank you! I want to go to Blogshop because I am inspired daily by the 20+ blogs I read regularly and have wanted to start my blog for quite some time now. I need a push in the right direction design-wise. Blogshop would be amazing.

  • 181. Jenny  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:53 am

    I got so excited I forgot to say why–My blog needs some MAY-JAH love and it would be amazing to come learn from THE BEST!!

  • 182. Chloe  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:53 am

    I have been drooling over the blogshop website for MONTHS now–I think it would be the experience of a lifetime! I am 24 years old and after working behind a desk for nearly two years, I feel really ready to stick my neck out and risk it all to try and live the most fulfilling and interesting life that I can, but am at a bit of a loss with where to start. I love design, but don’t have any formal training and am not quite sure where to go from here. I am in the process of starting a blog because I think that I can learn a lot about myself by putting my thoughts down on “paper”, but (as most new bloggers seem to be) I have been paralyzed with a fear of putting myself out there. Designlovefest (and your story, Bri!) has been a huge source of inspiration and encouragement for me since I discovered it a few months ago. Getting to meet the team of crazy talented people behind blogshop and designlovefest and actually getting to participate in a blogshop would absolutely be a dream come true! Can’t think of a more wonderful way to launch into a new stage in my life!

  • 183. Ash  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:53 am

    Wow, this is so generous! I’ve been wanting to attend a blogshop, but unfortunately it’s not something in my budget. Even if the giveaway was only for that, it would be incredible, but to get the latest photoshop too!….thank you!!

  • 184. elissa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:53 am

    best giveaway ever? i think so! i would LOVE to come to blogshop because my blog is in a bit of a rut. it’s been a couple years now and i need a inspiration kick in the butt and some motivation for a re-design. i was hoping to catch you gals in chicago but my schedule was a little to hectic. maybe this time around? fingers crossed!!

  • 185. Maycie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:53 am

    I would absolutely love to win this package! I am currently starting a blog called The Modern Mademoiselle, a blog tailored for the modern ladylike, yet playfully fashionable college-age girl. I feel that there isn’t a large target for good taste at this age, and would love to have the best training in design from Blogshop! My blog just needs that creative DesignLoveFest edge before I can fully launch it!

  • 188. Bre Richison  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:53 am

    I have wanted to gain some of these essential blogging, publishing, and photo editing skills for years. I think that these skills could benefit me within my own personal blog (It’s still in planning mode) and in my professional life within education. This would be an amazing opportunity (and the prizes are not half-bad! :)

  • 195. Courtney Brown  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:54 am

    I am SO excited about this giveaway! I am a photographer and blogger, from the Houston area, but my husband is in the Army, so we are constantly traveling around! I have been dyingggg to attend one of your blogshop classes, but haven’t been able to attend because we are all over the place! I am always inspired by your work and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE an opportunity to win a spot for your blogshop class! I think it would really help improve the overall appearance of my blog and teach me some fundamental techniques that will take my blog/photography to the next level! I’ve got my fingers crossed! I want to WIN so badly! :) Hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks again for this wonderful giveaway!

  • 196. Loli  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:54 am

    My mind wants to explode in reaction to this post!! I have wanted to sign up for blogshop for aggggessss, even voted for you to come to my city -DC!- but I am a year out of college, still broke and just cannot afford it.
    I am also SUPER new to blogging and am nervous that I would be the Amateur of ALL amateurs in your class- but know deep down you’d welcome me with open arms and help me learn everything I need to know. This blog inspires me daily and it would be a highlight of my year to attend. I also love everything else on this post – especially the things I like to window shop but can never get – ADOBE CS6!! && last but not least, I love all of the sponsors, I follow most of them.

    This would be such an amazing gift. Hope I win!

  • 197. rachael adele  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:55 am

  • 198. Nicx  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:55 am

    Wow, what a fabulous giveaway. I’ve just started blogging seriously and would love to attend your course so as to know how to make my blog look better!

    The Wacom tablet would have to be the item I’d most love. So that I can finally throw out my ancient one! It’s been on my wish-list for about a year. Here’s hoping that if I don’t win your competition my husband gets me one for Christmas!

  • 199. bobbi  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:55 am

    I would love to attend blog shop! I feel as though my style evolves as I learn more and more, and I can’t wait to see what kind of creative path I’d find myself on given the opportunity to attend! I think that, in design and blogging, the second you stop learning and growing is the second you should stop. I’m not ready to stop yet! :D

  • 200. Ali (A Dash of Details)  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:55 am

    I have been dreaming of taking a Blogshop class for the last year to learn the tips and tricks of Photoshop! I taught myself how to use the program a few years ago when I started my blog but I would love learn from you! This is the most amazing giveaway and I would be honored to receive this if I would win! Not only are the items unbelievable (especially Oh Joy’s Blog Inc book) but the Blogshop class would be something to take my blog to the next level. Thanks so much!

  • 201. Rachelle {wiley valentine}  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:55 am

    OH MY goodness, best giveaway EVER! #1 would obvi be to attend your amazing blogshop. I have considered attending for some time now. I am always down for learning new tricks. I do 99% of my designing in Illustrator and would love to expand my photoshop knowledge. Plus, the list of goodies is INSANE! Pretty please pick me!

  • 202. Pilar Moreno  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:56 am

    This is amazing! I´m a designer and illustrator and everything is great:)
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 203. Molly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:56 am

    I would love the opportunity to go to blogshop! I’m a senior graphic design student with my own blog and I’m getting ready to enter the ‘real world’ soon. Your style is such an inspiration to me and it would be amazing to learn from you how to improve how I present myself to the world! Thank you for offering this opportunity, Bri, and good luck to everyone :)

  • 204. Tori  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:56 am

    Such a great giveaway! I want to win a ticket to Blogshop so that I can improve the blog I already have! I know how to use Illustrator, but am a bit scared of Photoshop. I’d love to learn how to take advantage of it to improve my blog!

  • 206. Carlie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:56 am

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this package. I would love to learn photoshop from the creative masters :) Plus my blog could you use the update! :) Thanks for the offer!!!

  • 207. sel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:57 am

    i would love love love to win a chance to attend blogshop – i cant think of a better way to meet people with similar interests, learn amazing stuff and get motivated/inspired to do what i love.

  • 208. Rebecca  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:57 am

    I have been dying to attend Blog shop especially now that I am moving to London and starting to re do my blog. I’m on a budget and winning this would be AMAZING! I could {fingers crossed} attend in DC when I am back in the states OR maybe Blogshop is coming back to Europe this Spring/Summer! I need some guidance in just what exactly to do with photoshop and some luck sprucing up my site!!!!

  • 209. Latrina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:57 am

    I’d love to attend a Blogshop to enhance my blogging & photoshop skills and learn a way to combine those two to make great & visually & mentally inspiring content. I live not too far from LA but my budget doesn’t allow me to snatch a spot in BS. I’d love to win this opportunity — plus and upgrade in PS would be nice!

  • 210. Lea  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:57 am

    More than anything, blogshop would be a wonderful opportunity to meet a ton of cool, awesome, independent people/bloggers!

  • 211. Jordan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:57 am

    best. giveaway. ever!! I have followed this blog and a number of others (thats an understatement) for years, always wanting to start my own as a creative outlet but not being confident enough to do so. I am a History teacher and while I love my day job, teaching high schoolers doesn’t necessarily give me the opportunity to express my more artistic side. I know that attending this blogshop would give me the confidence and tools I need to start my own blog. Thank you so much for giving all of your fans this opportunity!!

  • 212. Jessica Salinas  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:57 am

    I would love to come to a blogshop in NYC to meet like minded, cool, creative people. I miss being in a creative classroom setting, sharing ideas and stories that get everyones creatives juices flowing.

  • 213. Stacy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:58 am

    Fabulous giveaway! I’ve been wanting to attend blogshop since I first heard about it, and now that I’m finally starting to start my own blog, I think it would be just the tools and inspiration I need!

  • 214. Rebecca - A Daily Something  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:58 am

    Oh boy! This is the most colorful and generous giveaway – thanks a million to all the sponsors! Why I want to attend BLOGSHOP: I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years and my blog is in need of major changes/work! I like the design, but it’s too simple, and I am so limited when it comes to making significant changes. I would love to attend BLOGSHOP and learn everything you and Angela have to offer! I cannot even imagine what it’d feel like to win this giveaway – thank you thank you thank you for the opportunity!

  • 215. Eli  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:58 am

    What an awesome giveaway, after blogging for almost 6 years, I’d like to take on the blogging world with a new perspective. Blogshop could totally help with that.

  • 216. Brandy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:58 am

    I would love to start a blog. I’ve tried in the past, but I desperately need guidance.

  • 217. Tori  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:58 am

    I also tweeted about the giveaway using the phrase shown in the post!

  • 218. Erin Bassett  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:58 am

    I am inspired thousands of times every day by the amazing talent in the blogosphere. Currently I work on two blogs (Daily E and Color Me Styled) and I am totally self taught using free apps for editing. Both need a lot of enhancements. Attending a BlogShop would be a dream come true… not just for the skills but for the chance to meet other amazing bloggers! I love the camaraderie between us all and hope to share with and learn from everyone. We can get to the “I got a book deal” level together!

  • 219. Paige K.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:58 am

    This giveaway is fantastic! I’ve been wanting to attend a Blogshop for the longest time, but at 19 and with tons of creative energy I have no way to afford it! I’m still figuring out exactly where I want to take my creative career in the future, but I know that attending one of these classes would be extremely beneficial no matter where my career takes me. I’d be so grateful to get this chance :)

  • 220. Tiffany  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:58 am

    This is the most legit giveaway in the history of giveaways! Going to blogshop would rock my world. My blog/website is in need of a major makeover. Blogshop is exactly what I need to enpower myseelf with tools to make it happen. This would really be a dream come true! I mean really!

  • 221. elizabeth  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:58 am

    this would be such an amazing chance for growth! i could really use a chance to be inspired

  • 222. Wendy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:59 am

    I am starting a new blog and would love love love to win this! Would definitely give me some added (and needed)motivation!

  • 223. Libby  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:59 am

    I can’t even describe the thrill I got while reading this giveaway… unreal! My life recently has been undergoing a big shift from following the normal “track” to going out on a limb trying to submerge myself in all that is creative and inspiring, even if not always that secure or consistent. I couldn’t think of a more powerful (and AWESOME) push than Blogshop to get me moving on making my ideas a tangible product.

    Also, CS6?! Gold and leather cases?! Are you joking me?!

  • 224. Melody Rich  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:59 am

    THIS IS AMAZING! Thanks to your sponsors! I’d love to go to Blogshop to improve my blogging skills. I’ve been blogging on and off for over two years but I want to expand and improve! This would REALLY help!

  • 225. Lindsey Hansen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:00 am

    This is seriously the best giveaway I have ever seen! Love it all. I have been dying to learn how to customize my blog more and how to get myself out there. I am in the middle of starting up an etsy shop and having my blog being a part of it. Going to blogshop has always been a dream of mine.

  • 226. Andrea  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:00 am

    Oh man where do I begin to list the reason why I would love to come to blog shop. Mostly because I use ps every single day at my job but I would love to leave the way the pros use it to make their blogs look so great. I started my little blog back in December and experiencing Bri talking and teaching about blogging would be the ultimate inspirational and motivational experience that would help better me as an artist and (hopefully) eventually as a person with their very own freelance business.

  • 227. Kate  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:00 am

    This giveaway is ah-mazing! I’m a graphic designer so I don’t technically need the photoshop lessons, but I DO need to spend some time with other bloggers and designers. Plus, getting to learn from Bri would be like a dream come true!

  • 228. Leisha Ramirez  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:00 am

    I would die if I won the prize.

    I just finished receiving my A.S. degree in Graphic Design and will continue my education for my Bachelor’s in January of 2013 AND this prize would definitely help with my education and freelancing ventures.
    Blogshop would help me since I am more of an Illustrator gal. I am still working on loving it and I feel you could help me with that. Since I am more of an Illustrator gal, you could guess I want to make a blog/website on my illustration work and inspiration. With the things I would be learning from Blogshop, it would make my blog/website stand out from the other I come across.
    Plus…I’ve never really won anything before…

    -Leisha

  • 229. Jessica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:00 am

    Would love to win this! I’ve really wanted to attend a blogshop in the past, but unfortunately it’s just not in the budget. Looking to start my own blog, and this would be a great way to kick it off!

  • 230. Al  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:00 am

    I would love to take blogshop to plan out my new blog. I’m going back to school for design and want to share the journey online.

  • 231. Wendy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:01 am

    This is a complete shot in the dark but I would absolutely love to win this contest. I just started my own blog almost 2 months ago (delightfulcrab.com) and have managed to download Photoshop a few times (using free trials) and create a few videos. I have generated SOME interest and have marketed on more than a few sites but would LOVE to take a class. Needless to say, I would also love to have Photoshop as I know how to use it I just cannot afford it :) Your blog is an inspiration, as are many others, and I am working hard at creating a successful blog! Thanks for the consideration!

  • 232. Taylor  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:01 am

    There isn’t one thing in this giveaway that wouldn’t entice an obscene happy dance if it were gifted on it’s own (including the note cards- is that wrong?), but TOGETHER, this is the ultimate prize, and I don’t even know if I could handle it if I won! Photoshop has never been in my starting-my-own-photography-business-budget, and would revolutionize my life, without question. And Blogshop? Stop it. This is the toolkit for becoming unstoppable, and that, Ms. Emery, is a pretty amazing thing. Keeping my fingers crossed….!

  • 233. Claudia Bravo  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:01 am

    This would be such an amazing opportunity. Blogshop would be a great experience to learn how to better my own blog. Like you’ve shared so many times Bree, social media is so important. I admire how you keep this space true to you; thanks for being an inspiration. – Claudia Bravo

  • 234. Emily  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:01 am

    I may not be new to blogging but I still feel like I have so much to learn! I’ve definitely been self-taught all throughout blogging, with little ah-ha moments when I finally accomplish a project (that would probably take 5 minutes with the right training)! This giveaway is incredible!

  • 235. megan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:01 am

    WOW. what an awesome giveaway! i have a blog (less than a year old) that could definitely benefit from this awesome class (not to mention the other goodies). thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  • 236. Judy P  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:01 am

    This is an awesome give-away. I want each of those things!

  • 237. Jessie-Lee Nichols  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Wow, this is an amazing giveaway! And an incredible opportunity. I would LOVE to win a spot in Blogshop!!

    I have a blog, but since finally getting a design job a year ago, I have had little to no time to focus on blogging. I used to blog everyday while I was holding down a terrible job that wasn’t in my field. It got me through.

    I have tried again and again to get through a re-design and get back to it. I have failed epically. I want to get back to blogging SO bad.

    This would give me the push I need to get back to what got me started!! Fingers crossed!!

  • 238. Joy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:01 am

    My blog is sad. I would love to revive it. or start a new one. :)

  • 239. Megan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Holy amazing giveaway! You’ve really outdone yourself this time!

    I’ve followed DLF from the very beginning and cannot express enough how inspirational, motivational and educational it has been for me from the early posts to the evolution of blogshop. I’m trying my best now to take the scary freelance / start-something-on-my-own plunge and this is the perfect package to help me on my way. It simply is all the pieces I’m missing to make the puzzle complete — not just the incredible class, but the tablet and PS CS6! Are you kidding me?? I’m dying to test out the new PS CS6 video editing capabilities! And, more importantly, it’s possibly the perfect environment to gain the confidence to finally take said jump. I’m such a huge fan… this would be the experience of a lifetime for me… And if not, thanks for presenting this amazing giveaway and keep up the wonderful work!

  • 240. Melissa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:01 am

    Bri! Your design work and colourful life have been an inspiration for me since I stumbled across your blog over a year ago.

    “If you want something and don’t ask, it’s like sitting on a pig praying for a ham sandwich” ~ Sam Harrison.

    I would LOVE all these LOVELY pieces & attend Blogshop to help me express my most creative self and take my blog to the next level :) (http://sweet-escape-design.blogspot.ca/)

  • 241. Rocio  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:02 am

    I started a blog over a year ago and I am in need of the knowledge blogshop can give. I want my blog to be an extension of my self and my photography business but in all honesty not only do I need the knowledge, I need inspiration. I want more than anything to be surrounded by a group of eager learners and doers. Plus everything else would a kick ass 29th birthday gift! Either way thanks for the opportunity!

  • 242. Kinanti Sachri  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:02 am

    I would die to go to Blogshop because ever since I can remember I’ve had this deep passion for fashion (excuse the cliche). I really, really, REALLY want to start my own fashion blog that will help my own personal style grow and to also inspire others, but being a rookie to blogging I would love to attend Blogshop to help me out!

    Much Love!

  • 243. Andrea  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:02 am

    What a fabulous giveaway!
    I’d love to go to Blogshop because I have my own blog, and muddling through the design elements is incredibly difficult and time-consuming when you are the whole staff, and you have to work outside the blog to pay the bills. I have so many ideas for my blog that I don’t know how to translate. I <3 the Designlovefest look and layout and the previous blogshops look like such a blast!

  • 244. Brandy Schuman  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:02 am

    I have my personal blog (and etsy biz) and I’m also blogging for my day job! I’m a huge fan & always finding great tips on your site. I wa so excited to see Atlanta on the list for your upcoming blogshop! I want/need to spruce up two blogs! When I got the email this AM my first thought was ‘what would I wear to class…’ !

  • 245. Sankhalina Nath  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:02 am

    I am a graphic design student from Bangalore (India) currently working on my Graduation Project. Honestly, the goodies in the giveaway are too tempting for me to not comment on this post. I know Photoshop well but I have always admired what Bri has to say to bloggers and designers who are just starting out. This blog has been so inspirational for me and every time I see photographs of Blogshop classes I yearn to be there, learning, re-learning and exploring fun things about blogging and yes most importantly I want to learn how to use video as a medium.
    And yeah, did I say I love/need/want very single one of those goodies. And I love this blog.

    Love
    Sankhalina a.k.a Sim

  • 246. Katie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:02 am

    Winning this giveaway would be a huge blessing and open up the door to a whole new career for me. With these giveaway items I could take my blog to a whole new level, as well as start doing more graphic design, which is the field I am trying to break into. I have the skills to head in the right direction, I just can’t afford the tools. I would love to be able to create designs that inspire and make a difference, from branding for non-profit companies that are intent on helping those in need, to creating designs for companies and organizations that empower and inspire women.

    I have always wanted to go to Blogshop, but have not been able to afford it. I feel that I am standing on the edge of a creative career that would both be fulfilling and helpful to others, and winning this giveaway would give me the tools to dive headfirst into that career. Thanks for your consideration, and thanks for the daily inspiration!

    -Katie

  • 247. Mel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:03 am

    Wow! What an awesome giveaway! So glad its not only for US residents! I would love to travel, meet new friends and learn more skills for my blog! The trip of a lifetime!
    -Mel (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

  • 248. Sarah  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:03 am

    I have read your blog for a while, and I’ve always wanted to attend a BlogShop class (and not just for the amazing goodie bags you put together!) I started a tumblr account a few years ago and love putting up photos from my life and travels, but I want to be able to take it to the next level and make it look more professional, and also make it look more “me”. I work an office job, but feel like I have a creative side to me that I would love to add a real skill set to through BlogShop.

  • 249. Kari  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    I have been putting off starting a blog for a while now, but I just finished school and finally have the time. If I won this I would really have no excuse not to get creative and put myself out there! Oh, what I wouldn’t give to attend a Blogshop!
    e-mail: karischarf@gmail.com

  • 250. Kim  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    OMG please! I think what you ladies do is amazing and this giveaway is AMAZING! I am a freelance designer and my project for this upcoming week is to start a blog to go along with my website, I’m kind of introverted so it’s going to be great to push my boundaries a little, and maintain personal as well as professional deadlines. I always appreciate all of your design advice, and come back to reread them when I’m in a motivation/design slump.
    I would love to come to blogshop! and use that slick blingy new iphone case. holla!

  • 251. Kristin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    I would adore any of the items included in this amazing giveaway! Like so many others, I am a senior in college about to enter the real world. Developing fresh personal branding is a priority this last year of school. I know blogshop would help me do just that and I would be over the moon if I got the opportunity to participate! This giveaway is a rad opportunity for any student!

  • 252. The New Diplomats Wife  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    yay, definitely count me in for this one! Mostly I want to be able to have the skills to show online the ideas that I have in my head, that’s what i’m looking for most in blogshop!

  • 253. Yehsong  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    I don’t have a blog yet but was thinking about creating one. I’m in love with beautiful typography, images and copy but feel underprepared honestly, to do it all myself, so winning this giveaway would be so so amazing! Loveeee your blog!

  • 254. Joani  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    I’ve been saying “I’m going to start a blog…” for a while now. All of my friends are tired of asking me when. Instead now they all just tell me “you’re crazy for not going for it!” But the truth is, I’m not crazy. I’m just a little scared. I know I have the ideas, I’m just not sure I can put them together visually in way I’d be proud of. I don’t want to ugly up my future brand with bad Photoshop jobs, you know? Blogshop would be just the jump start I need! I know I’d learn more than enough to feel confident to get my blog up & running!

  • 255. Samantha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    This is such an awesome giveaway! I’m just re-joining the blogging world after many years, and so excited to jump into all the cool new things you can do. LOVE LOVE the opportunity to go to Blogshop, and desperate for the CS6 prize, FOR SURE.

  • 256. Emily Lynne @ The Best of this Life  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    Oh my goodness, Bri! This is the awesomest giveaway ever!! I know, awesomest isn’t a word, but I think it applies. I would love the chance to participate at blogshop and be a part of the magic that happens there. I am completely self-taught when it comes to the bits of blogging and image editing…which leaves lots of room for instruction! I’ve been blogging steady for a little over a year and would love to take my blog to the next level, in design and friendliness to users/readers. Thank you for this opportunity! xo

  • 257. Trisha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    What a crazy-amazing giveaway! I’d love to be able to attend blogshop because even though I feel confident when it comes to creative content, I need serious help with the technical aspect of conveying ideas onto the internet! Plus how super freaking awesome is that laptop case? LOVE.

  • 258. Mandy DeTurk  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:04 am

    I would love to win this contest. I have started a blog and would love to evolve it into a business. This is a major dream of mine and this would help me get a move on, on this dream.

  • 259. Dani  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:05 am

    What an amazing giveaway! I recently left my full-time job to pursue my passion (my blog, Positively Present) full time. It was a big leap of faith and, even though it’s been difficult financially, it’s been worth taking the chance to live my life doing what I really love. When I found my beloved dog, Bella, was sick with kidney disease, I fretted over the exorbitant vet bills and trying to make ends meet, but I’ve somehow made it work. Blogging is my passion and despite the hurdles I’ve encountered, I’m determined to use it as a tool for helping others. When I found out about Blogshop, I fell in love with the idea of attending. Of course, given my pup’s illness and those crazy vet bills, I knew I wouldn’t be able to afford it this year. To win a free pass would be an amazing dream come true. Thank for the opportunity to be entered for a chance to win!

  • 260. Trissta  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:05 am

    Ok. This is serious business. I’ve been dying to just get to blogshop! Forget all the other stuff, it would be beyond my dreams to get to learn from YOU! I’ve had a blog for over 2 years now, and I’m wanting to expand it. I’ve reached a limit of how far I can go on my own, that now, I’m ready for the big dogs! I’ve just started grad school, so I would never be able to afford blogshop on my own right now. I know that this class would help me with so much more than just my blog (my whole life is now revolved around photoshop) and would forever change the way I run my online life. Definitely want to win this one.

    Much Love,
    Trissta

  • 261. Arbine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:05 am

    I have been obsessed with wanting to attend blogshop for the past year. I have a blog that I would love to be able to prettify. Thanks so much for this doing this awesome giveaway!

  • 262. jamie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:06 am

    why wouldn’t i want to go to blogshop? it would be awesome to attend and learn amazing tricks and techniques and a great chance to build real life community with other bloggers!

  • 263. kirsten  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:06 am

    Oh how I dream of winning this! My blog could use some help and I would love these wonderful gifts as well!

  • 264. Ang  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:06 am

    I would love to attend Blogshop! I’m fairly new to blogging and basically need all the help I can get!

  • 265. laura parke  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:06 am

    this giveaway has made me giddy!! i have a DIY blog that i love, but i want to start doing more video tutorials, so i’d be so happy to attend a video blogshop. and what fun accessories and things i could bring. this giveaway is fantastic!

  • 266. Louise  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    I would LOVE to go to blogshop because I need to get away from my monotonous 9-to-5 and put my art degree to good use!

  • 267. Julie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    Attending blogshop has been a DREAM of mine for a while, but unfortunately not in my budget. This would be an AMAZING opportunity to hone my photoshop skills so I can truly express my design aesthetic and to improve my blog. Finally I have a business idea in the works that would tremendously benefit from the skills I would gain at class! I’d be sitting in the front row, wide eyed and bushy tailed at your October DC class!

  • 268. Susan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    Oh wow…what a generous giveaway! I would LOVE to win this to improve both of my blogs and grow my business. I have heard such amazing things about this workshop!!

    What an amazing giveaway, I have been fantasizing about BlogShop for such a long time! I am starting my own business website and blog as a speech therapist (and generally creative, festive person) and would love, love, love to learn the Photoshop and branding skills you use on designlovefest. Thanks so much for this posting <3

  • 270. Megan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    What an amazing giveaway! I’m a digital editor professionally and a blogger personally, and I would love to win this–BlogShop would totally benefit both of those things. Thanks for the opportunity, Bri!

  • 271. Mallory  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    What a fantastic give away! I have a blog that could use some sprucing up! And all of that beautiful geekery…how can a girl resist?

  • 272. Annie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    I would LOVE love LOVE to come to blogshop! I am currently a graphic design student and anything and everything I can take in is a total dream for me! Ah I can’t even imagine if I did win! What a dream come true!

  • 273. Jen Brown  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    oh BLOGSHOP how do I love thee? you inspire and drive me to be the best blogger I can be. What has been missing you ask? only my attendance to a class!…I need some help getting all of these ideas I have of what I want my blog to look into ACTION. Also, I would rock that laptop case in and out of the office. Great giveaway!

  • 274. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:07 am

    I’m dreaming of coming to Blogshop because I really feel it will take my creativity to the next level. I would LOVE to attend the video-focused Blogshop, since video is what I’m most interested in adding to my blog, and I love Arian’s work! :)

    I’ve been dying to go to a blogshop! Mostly to meet a bunch of like minded folks and learn a few new tricks. I’m self taught and always looking for a more efficient workflow. This would be a dream come true!

  • 281. Amanda  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:09 am

    This is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I would die a happy death if I were able to attend Blogshop. I have been trying to start my photography business & blog for a few months now and would love this opportunity for inspiration and motivation on what I am most passionate about!

  • 282. Tracy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:09 am

    I would LOOOOVE to win the amazing giveaway because I just moved out of my mother’s house, just went back to school, &thankfully found myself a job. Thing is, I am working for a new office and a new part of my job is to advertise. If I win I will be able to do. Plus all the supplies are so adorable.

  • 284. Erin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:09 am

    AHH! – Now that I’ve got that out of my system. I would love to win! I currently manage a blog for my work (and have a personal one on the side). I don’t think that there is a limit to how much design skills development, collaboration among great minds, and learning can happen! Attending blogshop has been on my “save-fors” list for a long while now… and I live in LA, so no travel costs here!

  • 285. palma  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:09 am

    I have been wanting to attend a blogshop for a long time! Hopefully this will be my opportunity. I have a new business and lots of ideas that would benefit so much from this! <3

  • 286. Amulya  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:10 am

    Blogshop would be awesome in helping me finally start the blog I’ve been dreaming of!

  • 287. Kim  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:10 am

    As a graphic designer, I would love an oppotunity to attend Blogshop. I just recently started a blog and I also have a website with my design work as well. Although I’m not currently where I’d like to be in the design world, I believe that you need to always make time to do what makes you happy – even if it means making work for yourself on the side. Things don’t come to those who wait, they come to those who do! I’d love to learn from you and be a part of this amazing opportunity.

  • 288. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:10 am

    Wow. I saw the thumbnail of this contest on facebook and the wacom tablet and gold iphone case were enough to make me want to enter…but the chance to go to blogshop too?!

    I graduated from college two years ago with a degree in graphic design and have kind of ended up in the monotonous world of corporate-ish design and boring clients. I visit designlovefest every day for a dose of inspiration and am constantly reminded of what design should be. Since I’m not at the point in my career where I can responsibly leave my day job and go out on my own to find new and exciting clients, I have been considering the idea of starting a blog, but haven’t been able to really nail anything down. I think that if I was given the opportunity to learn from you and your fellow teachers, it would give me the first big push towards the kind of creative life I want to lead. Plus, I’m awesome and we would totally get along.

    Thanks for doing what you do!
    Lauren

  • 289. Hanna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:10 am

    This giveaway is a dream come true, the best one I have ever seen!

    I’ve started my blog about a year and a half ago, but I had some sort of dry-spell that only ended a few weeks ago. Now I’m getting inspired again, thinking of new columns for my blog and reconnecting with the community. It’s so much fun! I’m also trying this and that with Photoshop (Elements)but sometimes it’s a little frustrating learning everything on my own and not having it turn out as I want it to. Blogshop would be so much help. And with all those other fun items as well!

    This is the greatest thing!

  • 290. Kim O  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:11 am

    I love the idea of blogshop…photoshopping is always the thing that keeps me from regularly blogging since I really have no idea what I’m doing!

  • 291. Hannah  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:11 am

    Going to blogshop would be a dream come true. I do have a blog but it’s in desperate need of some help! I’m a recent college grad and a new mom and blogshop would set me in the right direction as for career and life in general. Please. Please. Please.

  • 292. Brandie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:11 am

    Yikes! This is major! I’d love to attend because I get the impression that you guys make learning this stuff really fun. In addition, after 4 years of working on my blog, I’ve definitely reached my capacity and need to gain so serious photoshop skills in order to not only take my blog to the next level but also my overall skill level. I have become obsessed with graphic design over the past few years and definitely need this. Given that blogshop wouldn’t be affordable to me otherwise, this is an amazing opportunity!

  • 293. Emma Gray  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:11 am

    I’ve had a blog for a while, but never really the time that I’ve wanted to put into it since I’m still in school. I LOVE design though and would love to come to blogshop not only to learn, but also to meet and connect with some super inspiring people!

    Plus all that other swag is amazing!

  • 294. Kayley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:11 am

    What a lovely giveaway! Attending blogshop would be amazing! I write for an Army blog (folks need to know what it’s like to be a lady soldier after all!) and know the knowledge and skills gained from blogshop could not only enhance the blog, but also my writing and the writing of my fellow soldiers. Plus, that iPhone case is killer.

  • 295. Priscilla  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:11 am

    Fabulous! Love your site so much I started following you on Pinterest. Completely new to blogging but have dreamed about starting one, someday. Would love to learn from the best…DLF!

    Luck to all. ; )

  • 296. Brianna MB  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:11 am

    I really want to come blogshop for two reasons. 1) as an artist I want to have the back knowledge to be able to control how my artwork is presented to the web, and not just use a template from some service to do so. Presentation matters down to the finest detail, and how you use that presentation can really make or break something. 2) Social media and blog presence for my job is mattering more and more, and I would like to take the same principles as I mentioned before and take them over to my work. I want everything that we do (or I do) to really represent who my organization is and who I am as an artist/individual. The more resources I have to do that the better. Since you’re blog is one that I regularly follow (and you’re aesthetic is AWESOMELY authentic), I was so stoked when you started blogshop. I’ve been watching for another Austin round. But I will gladly pounce on any opportunity since money is an issue. You always bring in so much to your blog (video, pictures, musings, life stuff). This really relates to what I do and what I’m passionate about. Basically, blogshop could be a game changer!

  • 297. Alison  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:11 am

    I would LOVE to win! I’ve wanted to attend Blogshop for some time now, but I just haven’t had a lot of extra money. I am self taught teenage fashion photographer, and I love sharing my work on my blog. Unfortunately, my blog isn’t very pretty right now, and I have a difficult time defining my brand and making it all cohesive. I’d really benefit from this class! Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  • 298. Hanna [excelsior lady]  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Oh holy moly I’d be crazy for not entering this. It would be a dream come true to go to blogshop – I’m a designer that is trying to escape the trap of a 9-5 job creating (of all things, ugh) PAYDAY SITES and freelancing for the projects I actually love on the side. I look at blogshop as the training I need to turn my blog into a badass brand and take off on my own. And PS – It’s certainly not the priciest thing on the list, but I think I’m most excited about the signed book!! I was gonna buy it anyway once it comes out :D

  • 299. tianna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Holy giveaway – I don’t usually enter these things, but this is too good to pass up! – I would love to attend blogshop to improve me new (3 week old) blog, which will hopefully give me lots of opportunity as it grows. And to meet some awesome, creative people.

    – tianna :)

    p.s. This is such a generous giveaway. Thanks for giving someone the opportunity to have something that may help build their careers … and some stuff that won’t but are fun and beautiful.

  • 300. ag.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Are you kidding? This giveaway doesn’t even seem possible…thank you all for your amazing generosity!
    I want to go to blogshop because I am at a point in my life/career where I need to make a move but I feel like I am lacking the skills to make this move on my own. I’ve taken a break from blogging because I needed to refresh and learn and make sure I am headed in the right direction. Blogshop would totally help push me in that direction! I’m hoping to start my own business in the next few months and having the skills taught in blogshop would definitely put the control for so many things back in my own hands!
    Thank you for the opportunity to win such an amazing giveaway!

  • 301. Natasha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:12 am

    What an incredible giveaway! I would LOVE to attend Blogshop. Love, love, LOVE to. I am a graphic designer but there’s still so much I have yet to learn about Photoshop. This would be an incredible opportunity, to say the least. Dream come true!

  • 302. Nancy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Woah! My blog could use a good spruce. You guys are amazing!!!

  • 303. Sam  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:12 am

    I want to come to blogshop for a funky fresh take on all things blog design! I’m a graphic design student and I check this blog everyday for inspiration. Bri, you are one of the cutest most inspiring e-mentors out there and meeting you would be a dream come true. Of course, meeting the other blogshop students would be amazing too! My blog could use some sprucing up, I am somewhat proficient with photoshop already but haven’t quite developed my own style within the program. I’d love meet more people with the similar interests and have fun with the most exciting subject out there. xo

  • 304. Bria  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:12 am

    This is the COOLEST giveaway… I’ve been absolutely dying to go to blogshop for ages!!! I definitely need help sprucing up my blog and I just LOVE the creativity and people that make up this workshop. I really need some creative sparks!!

  • 305. Erica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:13 am

    Wow! I just started my blog a few weeks ago upon my return from a year and a half volunteer experience in Brazil. I wrote a blog while there, but it was more just to share pictures. And on my weekend off (every three weeks) I sat on my computer and looked at all my favorite blogs.. for hours. It was the way I was able to connect with things going on back home. In two weeks, I will be moving to NYC and started this new blog to do as most… share my journey, inspiring things, adventures and endeavors. So, going to blogshop would be such a wonderful experience to learn how to do what all my faves are doing and how to make it my own. Thanks for the opportunity!!!!

  • 306. Jessica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:13 am

    I started seriously blogging just a few months ago and it has been such an amazing experience! I want to take my blog to the next level so winning this giveaway would be such an amazing opportunity to do so. I have been dreaming of going to Blogshop! I also tweeted the giveaway https://twitter.com/JessicaEraso/status/237975524050358272

  • 307. angie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:13 am

    Holy cow, What a generous giveaway! Blogshop would be the best way for me to get my new blog off on the right foot. I am an illustrator/calligrapher, so most of what I do is hand drawn. Having some computer based tools in my bag would be perfection.

  • 308. Samantha Howe  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:13 am

    What an amazing giveaway. I would LOVE to come to BlogShop because I’ve never had any formal Photoshop training which is LONNGGG overdue and my blog desperately needs some pretty-ing up!!! I’m most excited about the CS6 prize as I am still working on CS…the original version – yikes!!!

  • 309. Kelsey J  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:13 am

    FANSTATIC GIVEAWAY I love the young fresh approach Blogshop gives to those that have gone. I really would love to come to Blogshop to gain skills in making easy accessible training videos. I work as a volunteer doing Church Construction and my job is to create a basic video for all 35 trades and their overseers to teach a basic overview of their trade, to those that would like to help out on the projects (and who do not have a background in construction). I have been given this wonderful opportunity and my main trade is photography (which I use as well for Quality Control) but I started recording and I thought why not try this and see where it goes. I basically am heading my own crew on a construction site so to speak on my own and I am 22. That has been the main reason for why I have been wanting to come to Blogshop so I learn the skills, but since I only make enough living expenes wise so that I may spend the majority of my time helping out with these construction projects I have been unable to do so. It would be an incredible opportunity and a huge blessing if I was able to attend this workshop and take everything I could from it. Thank you so much for putting something like this together and I sincerely look forward to hearing from you!

  • 310. Leah  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:14 am

  • 312. Shannon  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:14 am

    Holy Moly. What an amazing giveaway! I’d love to take the Blogshop course to sharpen my blogging skills and streamline my blog’s content and posts. As a small business owner it can be hard to keep up with the blog and create interesting content. This would help me tremendously and would also be so much fun to boot! :)
    Thank you!

  • 313. Danielle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:14 am

    WOW, this is awesome! I have been to blogshop but if I won I would either gift it or see if I could apply it to the video class! I do website design and have been using my blogshop skills a ton! The laptop case has me all excited. Thanks and crossing fingers!

  • 314. Marissa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:15 am

    what an amazing giveaway. my friend and i always talk about how lucky we would be to attend a blogshop, but its either sold out or not in our city — so that is the one thing from the contest that i would absolutely adore. my blog needs some major sprucing — *and* i’ve followed designlovefest forever and i would love to meet you bri!

  • 315. Nicole LaViolette  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:15 am

    My passion is event styling and design and Blogshop has been on my radar for a while now (naturally) as I’ve been attempting to revamp my blog. Reading the feedback and watching the videos from past workshops has fueled the fire and has really instilled in me that I can do it. I’ve been teaching myself photoshop slowly but surely, and saved my pennies for Macbook in hopes of being able to come close to gaining some of the skills you display on your blog everyday. Being able to attend Blogshop would be a dream for me, I couldn’t imagine a more inspiring environment to learn and grow my blog and eventually my business. Thanks so much for the opportunity!!

  • 316. Jess  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:15 am

    I would LOVE to come to Blogshop since my blog is in DESPERATE need of a fix. I also need to be motivated to blog more and rebrand myself.

  • 317. Joanna Park  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:15 am

    I’ve been dying to attend a Blogshop class! My sister and I have a lifestyle blog and I want to keep up with it but the design and layout is not to our liking so we’re lacking some serious motivation. I have no doubt that attending a Blogshop class will get my creative juices flowing again!

    P.S. This is seriously am an amazing giveaway!

  • 318. L.C.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:15 am

    I hope I win so that I can take my blogging to the next level…and win all those goodies!

  • 319. Alice Gibbs  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:16 am

    Wow, this giveaway is just fantastic!
    Blogshop is a dream to me as a student who aspires to grow with graphic and blog design and become a fashion journalist someday. I can’t possibly dream to afford even one of these things and just having the opportunity for Blogshop would be fantastic but a tablet too?!
    I’ve had one blog for a while and am just expanding on a new blog based on graphics/HTML/design.
    Thank you for the amazing opportunity! Xox

  • 320. Jason  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:16 am

    I would LOVE to win everything here! Going to Blogshop would be amazing! I have so many ideas of things I want to do/ ways I want things to look but I don’t know how to do them. Thanks for this amazing giveaway!

  • 322. Rin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:16 am

    This is amazing. I’m trying to start a blog and would love to learn from one of the best! Meeting the blogger community in LA (and you of course!) would also be a really amazing perk. The blogshop for me would be like a 2-for-1 deal too; my boyfriend has a blog and sometimes asks me for design tips, so if I could attend blogshop I would be able to be more helpful to him with regards to design / vector graphics tips for his blog.

  • 323. Jessica Deacon  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:16 am

    My friend and I have been dreaming of starting out own blog for a LONG time and we decided now is the time and then saw this!!!!! It’s meant to be!!

  • 324. April  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:17 am

    Im seriously so stoked for this giveaway! I’ve been dreaming of going to one of these shops and I desperately need photoshop for my blog but I don’t have the money to invest in it right now. This is the perfect giveaway! & that leather case is perfect!

    I would LOVE to win, and to go to Blogshop! I can take pretty photos, but I don’t feel like I have the skills to fancy-up my blog in a way that really shows them off–and it would be so great to meet and learn from such creative people!

  • 326. Suzanna S  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:17 am

    Oh wow, this is the most exciting giveaway I’ve ever seen!! Most of my graphic skills have been self-taught, and I would love to get some of this wonderful instruction so that I can clean up my errors and learn some amazing new stuff. Puh-leaze pick me!!!

  • 327. Dara Denney  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:17 am

    I’ve been dying to go to blogshop since it’s inception! Being in TX (and short on cash) has kept me from doing it. I would love, love, LOVE to finally be able to take part! I am actually fluent in photoshop, but there are always tricks that other designers can teach… I’d love to meet Bri face to face and see what all she can show me. Plus, it just looks so FUN! Also, this bundle is to DIE for. Fingers crossed!

  • 328. Catherine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:17 am

    I’d love to attend blogshop to learn how to make my posts “pop” and create a cohesive voice for my blog. Great giveaway. Thanks for the free shot at blogshop!

  • 329. jen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:17 am

    this definately is THE BEST giveaway i’ve ever seen!!! I’m just starting my business and blog and would love to learn all about how to use photoshop and blog with the best of them!! This would be so amazing!!!

  • 330. Catharine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:17 am

    How fantastic!
    I personally would love to attend Blogshop to really get off the ground with a blog. I’ve had one in the past but it was never something I truly felt invested in. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about starting anew and Blogshop would be the perfect springboard! (especially if it came to Tennessee!)
    Good Luck everyone! And Thanks Design Love Fest!

  • 331. Mai  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:17 am

    so excited about this! i want to attend blogshop because i always feel inspired seeing your recaps and would love the opportunity to learn!

  • 332. Jen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:18 am

    I would love to come to blogshop because I recently started a blog for my pet photography business, Fetchlight. It’s focused on wall art/home decor so I devour issues of Rue and love your style. Though I just read the in-depth description of blogshop and think perhaps someone else would be more worthy than me, since I’ve been a graphic designer for the past 10 years and a photographer for the last few, I don’t really need basic photoshop instruction. But I do not have these lovely gadgets and versions and accessories, and if blogshop also has lessons on what kinds of photos attract the most views, build a brand better and get clients excited (besides photos from photo shoot sessions), that would be awesome to learn!

  • 333. Nicole Maria  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:18 am

    i would <3 to win this prize so I can attend the SF blogshop in November before we all head to the Alt Design Summit! I am getting ready to launch a blog and could use the help of the dazzling blogshop ladies! i am a photshop novice and hope to have stunning and FUN pictures of my creations just like designlovefest and oh joy! wish me LUCK!! xo

  • 334. tish tosh  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:18 am

    Do I have to have a mac to win/enter? Does an iPad count? I would LOVE to spruce up my blog. I’ve been writing since 2005. My baby needs a makeover!

  • 335. Merritt  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:18 am

    Holy smokes. Best giveaway ever.

    I am a 23 year old recent graduate working in a stale cubicle. Ultimately, I want to be a freelance event/wedding planner, so I am stashing my away my paychecks like you + Kate always advise in your advice column. I cannot currently afford Blogshop, but I am crossing my fingers (okay, & everything else) that I win this dreamy giveaway! Going to Blogshop would give me the opportunity to learn from other creatives and would teach me millions of things that would benefit my future event planning business. Please, oh, please – let me win!

    You’re the best, DesignLoveFest!

  • 336. katrina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:18 am

    Wow, this giveaway is incredible! I only started blogging 2 years ago as a means of a creative outlet. My day jobs have always left me feeling like I wasn’t fulfilled in my creative ways and when I saved up my pennies for a DSLR, I wanted a little place on the internet of my own to share my stories. My blog has allowed me to meet amazing people and connect with others out there who understand me in ways that people in my immediate environment don’t get. With the opportunity to attend blogshop, I would get to focus more on how to connect with this incredible blogging community and curate more of my creativity.

  • 337. Rachel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:19 am

    I’ve recently started a blog and would love the opportunity to learn more from individuals who have been successful in the field of blogging. Also I currently can’t afford Photoshop, but totally need it!

    This may be the best giveaway of all time … in my opinion, at least! I want to go to Blogshop so that I can continue to improve my blog. I need to upgrade to CS5, I need a tablet, and I was already planning on buying Blog, Inc.! Getting them as part of this giveaway, along with all the other goodies would just be gobs of icing on the cake!!!

  • 339. Siena Sausser  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:19 am

    Holy cow– this is one heck of a giveaway! Very generous and awesome indeed!! I’ve been dying to take a BLOGSHOP class for about a year now but I haven’t had the budget or time to do so. (mostly because majority of the classes have been sold out) BUT this opportunity is one I could not pass up to try! I have a few basic photoshop skills, but I could definitely use some expert advice on how to make a kick ass blog. I have one at the moment, but it can for sure use some killer TLC. With all these wonderful giveaways, I would feel like the queen of England if I were to win! BLOGSHOP is a genius + helpful outlet for many creative people out there and from what I hear and see, it is very beneficial, useful, + FUN! Hoping one day I will join the BLOGSHOP courses, even if I don’t win the big giveaway! This is a huge opportunity for many off us entering for the extreme goodies, THANK YOU THANK YOU for this once in a lifetime and generous opportunity :-)

    like whoa. drop dead giveaway.
    I want to do blogshop because it’s a great opportunity with an amazing teacher. I feel stuck working my day job out of college and would love to be inspired by creatives going through the same thing…wanting to grow…looking for the next thing. I would love to come back from blogshop with a post-it saying “quit my day job”. ha!

  • 341. Carolyn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:20 am

    I have been blogging for about a year and am always trying to learn more about blogging! Attending blogshop would really help me improve my blog! Great giveaway thank you!

  • 342. Steph  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:20 am

    Best giveaway ever! I would LOVE the opportunity to learn about stepping up my blog game. Making some life changes soon; I’d love my blog to match.

  • 343. erika  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:21 am

    im dying to go to blogshop because:

    1) one day of blogshop would teach me more than all of the graphic design classes i’ve taken have
    2) i want to develop my own design style further
    3) between working full time to pay for two schools, i don’t have the funds to pay for an amazing blogshop class
    4) plus, a wacom tablet and PS6 have been on my wishlist for quite some time and all the other goodies are adorable–i’m drooling just looking at them.

    design is more than a tutorial can teach. more than a lesson and steps can guide you through. design is a method of thinking, a thought process that requires creativity. blogshop thrives on the creative aspects of design while typical design classes (or at least the one’s i’ve taken) do not.

    the frustration of paying to go through design school and not being taught how to develop a look or even create professional design (but rather execute the motions of a software with no aesthetic direction) has driven me to a design rut. i’d like to take at least one class that inspires me rather than disappoints me and blogshop is the answer!

    winning a spot in blogshop would give me the motivation to revamp my old blog, skyrocket my designs at work, and give me eternal joy.

  • 344. Lyndie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:21 am

    I’m finishing my undergrad this semester and am getting on my feet as a designer and “all-around-have-lots-of-funnaire” I have lots of ideas and I think blogshop would help me organize them and bring them to fruition…woo!!! I have a blog but it could use a lot of sprucing.

    Love your stuff Bri, such an inspiration!

  • 345. Anna Newell Jones  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:21 am

    whoa. my virgo side is all, “yay! organization stuff!”. i love all of it; especially the pink/coral laptop case.

    getting a chance to attend blogshop would be, basically, the best thing ever.

    every single blogshop looks so fun and cute and to be able to learn new skills to take my blog to the next level would be something i’d would be extremely grateful for.

  • 346. Kelsey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:21 am

    I work at a commercial photo/video studio and I’d love to be able to contribute more to our blog. I already know how to take photos and use photoshop, but I’m lacking the skill to make eye-catching posts with these skills. However, if I won it is extremely likely that I’d gift my blogshop pass to my dear friend Erica. She just returned from a Catholic mission in Brazil and is starting her own style blog. She’s got a great eye for it and a great blogging voice. She’s moving to NYC and this would get her on her feet!

  • 347. carissa shapiro  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:21 am

    What an incredible giveaway!! I’d love to attend blogshop because I’d learn the resources needed to start my own blog which I’ve been dreaming about. I really hope I win!! I love those extra special goodies too!!

  • 348. Taja  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:22 am

    This is by far one of the most generous giveaways I have ever seen any blogger do. Its both educational and beneficial to any aspiring blogger or tech savvy individual! would love to attend a blogshop class in NYC so I can learn how to execute my ideas in a fresh and exciting way! learning from you ladies would be a dream come true and would really put me on a path closer to my dream of becoming an art director. with my final semester approaching this fall, it would be so great and beneficial to have the adobe suite and tablet for my advertising classes! it would help me produce a much better portfolio and prepare me for freelance jobs until I can establish my career in advertising! it would be such an honor to learn from you ladies and I really, really hope I can get a chance to at least attend a class with you!

  • 349. lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:22 am

    would love a little pick-me-up as i dive into a new format with more original content! loving all these goodies!!

  • 350. Rachèle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:23 am

    I just started a new blog and would LOVE the opportunity to learn new tricks from the best!

  • 351. harley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:23 am

    I have been wanting to attend a blogshop ever since they started! Learning the tools at this class would just be a dream come true. I have been wanting to make my blog more me but find myself unable to do so without all of the know how.

    I would love to win!

  • 352. Emily  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:23 am

    I started a blog a little while ago to share my artwork and illustration, and it definitely needs a facelift. I’ve been dying to take your class but can’t afford the price as much as I would love to spend the money on it. Photoshop has been on my wishlist for ages. I currently use a very old student version, so it would be put to good use and I would deeply appreciate the new features! Thanks for this offer Bri!

  • 353. Erin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:23 am

    I’d LOVE to attend blogshop, I am dying to learn more about how to bring more creativity to my blogging. What an amazing giveaway!

  • 354. holly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:23 am

    holy moly, i would LOVE to win!! i have a blog that needs sprucing in the worst way. this would be my dream!

  • 355. percentblog  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:24 am

    I would LOVE to win this just for the class (though there are so many lively extras!) I’ve been blogging for a few years for fun but am getting more and more serious and ready to make the leap to blogging and making jewelry full time! I just need your help!

  • 356. Kelly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:24 am

    I want to come to blogshop because it seem like the BEST environment to learn in. Being surrounded by fellow bloggers, beginning and advanced, would truly be inspiring. My blog is less than a year old, and I’m having so much fun with it. I’m not as experienced in photoshop as I would like to be, and blogshop would be the perfect opportunity to learn techniques to enhance the visual aspect of my blog. I would be absolutely thrilled and honored to attend!

  • 357. eli miranda  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:24 am

    this giveaway is so totally insane! in the greatest way possible!
    the reason i want to go to blogshop…well there are tons of reasons, but the biggest one is because up until i started reading designlovefest and friend blogs like ohjoy and emmadime, i didn’t have an outlet to express what i loved when it comes to music, art, food..etc. there was so much i loved and wanted to share, but i didn’t know how to, but once i started reading this blog everything changed for me. i had a whole new perspective on media outlets (more than i did before) and i felt inspired…daily. it felt good, so i slowly started writing and posting things on my very amateur blog and even though not many people were reading it at first i continued to write and post because it made me happy and i knew one day someone would appreciate what i was writing.

    i have heard so many stories about how people learned so much from blogshop and how much fun they had and i would love more anything to experience that! plus who wouldn’t wanna spend two days around you and angela! come on, major girl crushes!! ha ha! this giveaway is incredible and thank you for giving one lucky person the opportunity to win all of this and more (the memories they’ll forever cherish)!!

  • 358. katie hart  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:24 am

    THIS IS INCREDIBLE. since the day you announced the first Blogshop, I’ve been dying to go.. but haven’t had the $$. I’ve had my blog for about 2 years, but would love to make it way prettier with all that I could learn in Blogshop!! Learning from you & the other talented creatives in attendance would be such a fantastic opportunity.

    PICK ME! :)

  • 359. Rachel P :)  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:24 am

    This may be the best give away in blog history! Thank you so much for this opportunity! I would love to win because I have been wanting to start a blog for a while, but I really don’t have the computer skills to make it what I want it to be. Plus, I’m a newlywed and so can’t afford to attend blogshop or photoshop! But, I think I would be most excited to wins signed copy of Blog, Inc! I’m planning on buying it anyway, but I adore Joy and would be thrilled to have a signed copy!

  • 360. Krystle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:24 am

    I’m a big admirer of blogshop. I’d be so stoked to win this since I just spent a lot of my savings starting my own business.

  • 361. Christina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:24 am

    OMG this giveaway is AH-MAZING and I’m so excited about it!!! I’ve been wanting to go to one of the blogshop workshops for a while now but haven’t really been able to afford it, and the closest city has been 5 hours away. I love design and really want to learn as much as I can about Photoshop and blogging. I’d like to start a blog and this would be the perfect opportunity to do so! I really love everything that y’all do and it’s such an inspiration to me! Thanks for doing this awesome giveaway! :)

  • 362. Julia Clements  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:25 am

    I have been dying to go to blog shop for quite some time. I have tracked all the cities and I can never make it to any of them! I am a college student at the University of Cincinnati and I am always traveling for internships. I am going to be in San Francisco this fall!! Which will work perfect for the San Francisco blog shop! Unfortunately it is really expensive for this college girls budget! My friends and family know how long I have been wanting to do blogshop! I am a interior design student I am always on photoshop, illustrator etc. I have great skills but always want to improve them as well as link the gap between design and blogging! Bri’s blog, Designlovefest is my go to everyday! I am a big fan and would absolutely love to experience blog shop in San Fran this fall. <3 Julia Clements

  • 363. Kimberly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:25 am

    WOW WOW WOW! Fun giveaway! I’d love to absorb all your knowledge at Blogshop – my blog could definitely use a little boost and this would be JUST the thing to help!

  • 364. Desi  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:25 am

    Joy wasn’t kidding when she said this was a great give away. Amazing.

    I would love to come to Blogshop. I’ve been thinking of redesigning/refocusing my blog for awhile now. I know this inspiration would be the perfect catalyst.

  • 365. alyssa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:25 am

    I would love to turn my blog into something “real”. Right now it’s just somewhere I post things I’m doing for fun, but I would love to turn it into a place to share projects and recipes.

  • 366. Kirsten  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:25 am

    just getting ready to launch my website in conjunction with a blog and although I’ve got tons of ideas I need help to figure out how to best bring to fruition so that I am contributing valuable ideas and information to the blogosphere instead of more blah blah blah

  • 367. Nicole Dao  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:26 am

    Like many of the other folks here, I’d love to attend a blogshop event to spruce up my current blogs, but I’d like to also expand my knowledge of Photoshop and web editing. Plus, meeting you in person would be totez cool.

  • 368. katie hart  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:26 am

    also, just tweeted!! @adaywithkate

  • 369. Ashley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:27 am

    I currently am the designed for my company webpage/blog, and also want to start a personal blog. I KNOW blogshop will improve both drastically, not only the knowledge, but the inspiration from all the others around me.
    I know I will meet some great people.
    Sheesh, do I hope I will win! That yellow tote is gorgeous too!

  • 370. Jana Miller  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:27 am

    I would love to win-I love learning new things and my blogs can always use a spruce up!

  • 371. Whitney  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:27 am

    Wow! This is such an amazing giveaway that would give any new blogger a chance to break out. I am a semi-new blogger who is always looking to expand and become a better blogger. This is simply be such a helpful giveaway to win!

  • 372. Lizzie Miller  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:27 am

    I want to come to BlogShop not only for the amazing pointers on how to make my blog that much more effective, but because it will grow me as an individual. My blog differs from most because it is a “leadership” blog but being a graphic designer I am always looking to make it more appealing and outstanding. Communing with fellow bloggers is also a huge plus. Nothing like new friends and fresh perspective!

  • 373. yuri  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:27 am

    i want to go to blogshop so bad so i can be a better blogger.

    say that 3x fast!

  • 374. Meredith M  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:28 am

    I have so many great ideas for my next blog but I need the inspiration to get it going! Plus I admire all that you have done! I want to be a design extraordinaire just like you!

  • 375. Debt Free Teen | Chase  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:28 am

    I might have to give some of the prizes to one of my girl friends but it looks like it would be a fantastic class!

  • 376. allison  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:28 am

    i really wanted to attend the blogshop in dallas, but spots filled up so fast!! :( i’m interested in blogging full-time, and attending this class looks amazing!

    hope you ladies had fun in dallas and steered clear of all the skeeters!

  • 377. Katelyn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:29 am

    I would LOVE to win a chance to come to Blogshop and have these amazing giveaway products! Unfortunately I don’t know if Blogshop will be in an area close to me again as I’m located in Montreal, Canada! But if there’s a chance, I’ll take it! I am a freelance graphic designer and I need to update my website, possibly refreshing it by creating a blog type layout!

  • 378. Desiree  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:29 am

    attending blogshop would be an amazing experience! my blog needs an overhaul and i don’t even know where to begin! i know i’d be inspired at blogshop by the other attendees and of course by you, bri, and i know this would give me an idea of the direction i want to visually drive my blog. i also have no idea how to use photoshop and have wanted to learn for years. this is also a skill i’d love to have on my resume for other professional endeavors.

  • 379. Jenn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:30 am

    Looks like blogshop would be fantastic!

  • 380. Kerry  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:30 am

    I’m not sure what’s better- all that free swag or blogshop! Blog shop, duh!

  • 381. Kersey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:30 am

    Yowza! I need this so badly! I have had my blog for almost two years now and have yet to get photoshop and learn all of the amazing possibilities available. I’ve been using iPHOTO AND WORD for all my photos. Yikes! Blogshop would be a dream come true. Literally!

  • 382. Emily  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:30 am

    Oh my god! I would absolutely love to attend blogshop! I’m very interested in learning photoshop and intro graphic design. I’d like to start a blog, but don’t have those tools (currently my blogs are basic writing) This would be such an amazing experience!!!

  • 383. emily  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:30 am

    starting a new business and blog… blogshop would totally get me on the right track!!

  • 384. Clio  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:30 am

    WOAH! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win this giveaway because I am super impatient to make my blog (and future business/website/work) as amazing as I know it can be, I just need the skills.

    Also I totally agree with Molly, I want to see your hair in real life Bri! I rock a pretty mega mane myself and would love to compare ;)

    I tweeted too, @meldonc

  • 385. Vanessa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:30 am

    I would LOVE to attend blogshop for two very important reasons.
    1. Is so that I can express myself through words, in a way that is modern, fresh, and relateable. 2. To help my husband live his dream by sharing his artwork through a blog, that people enjoy to read everyday!
    Winning this contest will help both of our dreams come true and hopefully lead us to a more purpose filled life!

  • 386. lisa bradley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:30 am

    I would love the chance to attend blogshop because I am already a type and graphics lover, but my blog has never consistently been operating. I would love to learn Bri & Angela’s tricks of the trade!

  • 387. Laura  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:31 am

    Holy balls, this is an awesome giveaway. I’m just launching a blog in conjunction with my graphic design studio, and I would LOVE to learn from your class! And meet you. And wear something super bright to class. Thanks, Bri!

  • 388. Gigi Baith  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:31 am

    Omg! Winning this awesome package and attending Blogshop would be a dream come true. I have been following blogshop for a while now and I am always inspired by Bri. I have a blogsite that has been up for 4 years now and I would love to give it a lil punch.

    Best,

    MissGDFierce @ http://www.MissGDFierce.com

  • 389. Aubrey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:31 am

    This is amazing! I have wanted to attend Blogshop for a while but haven’t had the means to do so. I am just starting a blog and I also blog for the salon I work at. I use Photoshop a little at work but still have a TON to learn. I love your style and would love to learn from you! I just love everything in this giveaway – LOVE!

  • 390. MicheleB  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:31 am

    Squee! I need to attend a blogshop so bad!! I’ve been blogging for ages, but I stink at being interesting and consistent. Winning would be so radical since I’m putting myself thru a fancy art school and need the scholarship and other prize goodies ;)

  • 391. Jessica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:32 am

    I have been wanting to start a blog of my own, a place I can voice myself and share myself. I want an outlet for the creativity in me that is currently buried under being a new mom, the daily grind of work, and the rest of the things that prevent me from getting a great start. I think a blogshop (along with the Blog Inc book) would be the perfect start. Thank you!

  • 392. Brittany Dawson  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:32 am

    It’s bad when my Mom doesn’t even read my blog! I need some blogshop magic to liven it up!

  • 393. Megan Lipke Kenney  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:32 am

    Oh.my.goodness! I couldn’t imagine a more incredible give away!! I’ve been dying to attend a Blogshop to improve my skills (I freelance for Style Me Pretty and am always looking for new tricks for my posts!) and meet some incredible talents (ahem, BRI!) Also, the goodies are out of this WORLD! I’m absolutely loving the metallic laptop case! Winning this would be seriously the most AMAZING thing ever. EVER!

  • 394. Shaina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:33 am

    wow, I literally got butterfiles when I saw all the amazing things you’re giving away! I would be so grateful for a chance to go to Blogshop. I was getting my degree in Graphic Design while doing makeup at Sephora to pay for school, until one day a few months ago I realized just how much I love making people feel gorgeous and sharing all of my knowledge. I have since switched to a liberal arts degree and started my own freelance makeup artistry business! I’m planning on launching a blog in the next few months, I’ve been brainstorming for months, I really want it to be great.

    Even though I took design classes, the program wasn’t perfect and I honestly didn’t learn anything about Photoshop (it was more Illustrator and InDesign) and that’s very frustrating for me. I’ve got the skills and the eye to design something beautiful to share with the internet world but I lack the technical expertise & tools to execute it. I would love so much to learn how to make my vision happen at Blogshop. Thanks Bri, you & Joy are pretty much the best ladies on the internet :D

  • 395. Jasmina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:33 am

    I would love to attend blogshop, but I’m afraid I live too far away, but the other prizes seem awesome! I just started to make my own website/blog from scratch, so I’m still learning a lot of things and learning to use Photoshop would be exciting!

  • 396. Amy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:33 am

    What an amazing giveaway! I could really use some upgraded photoshop skills – everything I know is either gleaned from my brother or from youtube videos! Your blog & pinterest boards are such an inspiration! Thanks for the opportunity :)

  • 397. Lindsay  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:33 am

    Fantastic. I’d love to be entered! You can never stop learning when it comes to blogging.

  • 398. Heylee Heep  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:33 am

    Well- I really wanna really really wanna go to the blogshop. Truthfully,I love my photography blog right now and I’m excited to learn how to make it better! Always improving, right? I want to learn how to stand out and really give each visitor a unique experience.
    Besides, who wouldn’t want all those goodies? Again- DAYUM!!

    Thanks for this opportunity!

    OMG. Add me to the list of people who would die for this opportunity!

    I have a blog, but it feels very web 2.0 to me right now. It’s super crowded and I would love the opportunity to travel to Chicago (unless you’d consider having a class in Minneapolis!) to take the class and learn how to make it cleaner and chic-er!

    Plus… Blog, Inc. – can’t wait to read that, and I could really go on and on about the other prizes…

    Here’s hoping! xx

  • 401. Helena  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:34 am

    Wow, this is really an amazing giveaway!! How cool would it be to attend Blogshop in San Francisco? ;) I just started a blog (yay!) and Blogshop would really help me to be more creative with my life and work. Can’t wait for next Tuesday! Greetings from Portugal :)

  • 402. kara  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:34 am

    Ahhhh! Great giveaway! I have been out of school for 5 years and would LOVE to learn some new tips and tricks on photoshop! I really need to update a portfolio and website- this would be perfect! Wonderful opportunity for whoever wins this!
    :) Kara

  • 403. Diana Vel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:35 am

    I already have a blog, but I’d love to learn more tools to make it better. I’ve seen your Blogshop posts and i find them really great! This is the perfect chance to really be in one!! Plus any excuse would be awesome to visit my boyfriend who is currently living in LA.

  • 405. Briana Morrison  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:35 am

    I am starting a new photography business and though I already have a fun little blog, I’d love to go to BlogShop to learn how to separate myself from the pack. I have a passion for graphic design but still have a lot to learn. I really want to find a way to make my blog stand out to my readers and be so inviting they want to come back to it again and again. I feel like my blog is the foundation for my business and I would love to build a design that is beautiful and unique.

  • 406. Stephanie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:35 am

    I love your blog and Rue Magazine! I am always inspired by the fresh color schemes, use of shape and transparencies, and sharp typography! I am an aspiring Graphic Designer / Blogger myself! I hope for a chance to win this amazing prize!! :)

    I would LOVE to win this giveaway! I am the new downtown Los Angeles lunch lady (just opened a cafe with my boyfriend) so I need help building a website! The current one we have is a Tumblr default (gasp!) I would LOVE to have a blog to post our daily lunch special menu as well as photos. Pick me, pick me! :D

    What an amazing giveaway! Going to blogshop would be amazing… my blog is such a typical visual diary of anything traveling through my brain ….I would love for it to be more polished, and take the front seat on my priorities list!

  • 410. Ravyn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:36 am

    What an amazing giveaway!! Big high-fives!! I would love to attend Blogshop! :: I’ve been blogging for years, and I absolutely love it. While I have an understanding of my own blog, I think it would be amazing to gain some perspective overall!! It would be lovely to connect with other creatives, and if it would help my blog look/work better, what could be better?? So amazing!

  • 411. Alina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Whoop Whoop! I <3 blogshop and what it could bring to my budding new blog. Plus i'd love to meet/hang with all the other fellow blogger peeps. I can almost feel the inspiration just by thinking about being in that blogshop room…better than strawberry ice cream.

  • 412. Gudny  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:36 am

    What an amazing giveaway! I’m a photographer from Iceland but living in Sweden and I would love to improve my blog, I’m also very interested in the video editing with photoshop. I love your blog and all the things you are doing with blogshop. I will be staying in California for a little while in the spring and it would be a dream come true to be able to attend…crossing my fingers! :)

  • 413. Megan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Oh, this is an amazing giveaway! I would love to do a Blogshop, but since they haven’t been in my area, it’s been out of my budget. Winning this would allow me to travel to wherever the class is…hooray!

  • 414. Taylor Kampa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:36 am

    HOLY COW I’m shaking because this is the most INSANELY amazing giveaway ever. I have been reading and LOVING your blog everyday for the past year and a half. I also majored in Graphic Design and have been stuck in a design job (with CS4) that doesn’t have a lot of creative challenges or different ways for me to express myself in the ways I was trained. Your blog gave me back the spark I’ve been searching for. I re-designed my website and added a blog section–with yours in mind because it’s beautiful. I’ve never blogged before but had tons of ideas so it was the perfect thing to do. When I found out blogshop was coming to DC I fell out of my chair with excitement- not kidding you can ask my boyfriend. Having the opportunity to attend it, meeting you and learning new tricks to really boost my blog and design career (like going freelance and never having to work in a dull boring office again) would be life changing! You are a true design inspiration Bri, keep it up!

  • 415. Kate Smith  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:37 am

    Wow Bri, what an amazing giveaway!!!!! I have been working on designing blogs for the past year and would love to gain some knowledge from you awesome girls! Thank you!!

  • 416. Kelci  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:37 am

    WHOA WHOA WHOA. I can’t even believe this giveaway. I’m pretty sure this is record winning. I’ve been longing to attend a blogshop! I just started taking online classes studying graphic design and I also have a blog. I’ve learned a bit on Photoshop, but would love to learn some blog specific or gears tips and tools. OH MAN.

  • 417. Ashley Oster  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:37 am

    All of these prizes are to die for! I love your blog and am a graphic designer, just graduated from school in SoCal! I’ve been dying to attend a blogshop but haven’t had a chance to. I really want to explore blogging and really want to start my own. Your style is so inspiring and lovely, I would love love love to take this blogshop from you!

  • 418. lauren chorpening  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:37 am

    I love the creative spark that happens between people in workshop, especially one taught by inspiring people. I’ve loved the idea of blogshop since I heard about it. I am starting a blog with another designer soon. It would be a dream to have the opportunity to get to learn from you! all the books in the world don’t compare to a hands-on workshop.

  • 419. Brooke  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:38 am

    I want to go to Blogshop because I am really interested in expanding my travel blog and making it more graphically pleasing. I have been working on a new design, but struggling on the lack of equipment and my current knowledge.
    I just graduated college and found myself in a job wehre I am learning new programs daily, and would love to practice more on graphics along with tweaking my video skills.

  • 420. Joanna Melissa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:38 am

    Great giveaway! My husband and I just started a company and we need to build a blog, I would love to get some blogshop skills!!
    and that gold iphone case is pretty dreamy too…

  • 421. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:38 am

    All the prizes are awesome, but the blogshop spot is killer! I’ve had my blog for over 4 years now, and when it comes to my photos I still don’t have a defined “style”. I tend to go every which way when it comes to editing, so have some blog focused photoshop guidence would be amazing!

  • 422. liz  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:38 am

    Wow, this is one amazing giveaway. I would love to learn some amazing new things in Photoshop while gaining tips for blog design. A new tablet + Photoshop CS6, yes please!! Killer giveaway. Fingers crossed.

    Ohlala! This give away is magic! I would love to attend one of your classes! I live in Belgium so I could travel to Europe for this! Are you planning to come back to Europe any time soon?
    I have been blogging for many years, my blog is my creativity bubble where I can express my love for photography, crafts and vintage. I love your blog, how you play with colors, how you present things always with a little twist and your playful style. Would love to learn from you!

  • 424. Amy Wing  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:38 am

    I would be so excited to win this prize, you don’t even know! I’ve been dragging my feet on starting the blog I have been dreaming about because I want a better grasp on all of the Photoshop skills I have been working on!

  • 425. Becky!  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:39 am

    I want to win this so bad! I have been a regular blogger since the beginning of the year and I love it. I want to connect with other go-getters, designers and entrepreneurs. If I could only pick one thing on the list, it would definitely be Blogshop. You can’t get any better than face to face relationships.

    Whoever wins is going to be quite the lucky lady/fellow. Thanks, Bri.

  • 426. lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:39 am

    I’d love to attend Blogshop! I’m thinking about starting up a blog and this would be the perfect push!

    This is amazing! I have been doing research and reading up on blogging tips because I reallllly want to grow my blog, but I need help finding my mojo! And this is EXACTLY what I need!

  • 429. Cee  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:40 am

    I’ve been in such a creative rut lately; being around all sorts of creative and excited people would be the exact thing that I needed to kickstart my way into figuring out what I want to do with my life… or at least, maybe make me more excited about figuring out what I wanted to do with my life! Always loved reading blogs; never been particularly good at keeping one, though!

  • 430. Shawna Lauringson  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:40 am

    I would loooove to win this! What an amazing giveaway! I need these skills bad to enhance my company and make it all look awesome! Thanks for the opportunity to win this Bri and Angela!! Fingers crossed.

  • 431. Ansley Prior  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:42 am

    I would give absolutely ANYTHING to come to Blogshop! I am a design obsessed college student studying visual communication, journalism and advertising. I am hungry to learn anything and everything to improve my work and Blogshop is a once in a lifetime opportunity that would be a priceless experience in my life.

  • 432. Amanda  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:42 am

  • 433. Diana  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:42 am

    What an incredible giveaway! I work as an architect and regularly enter competitions, but I dont have an online presence yet. I would love to harness what graphic design experience I have and give myself and my business a boost! I am a regular DLF visitor and would love to go to the NYC Blogshop!

  • 434. Court  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:42 am

    Unbelievable giveaway! This would be so helpful to have my break into my dream career of graphic design by starting a blog with a portfolio. I’ve been wanting to go to the next SoCal blogshop, so this would be a great opportunity! Ah, fingers are crossed.

  • 435. Shannoncecelia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:43 am

    HOLY COW! (Actually said this out loud in a business meeting while reading this post!) Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to win such AMAZING things. Just by leaving a comment. This is such a wonderful opportunity for a person starting out on their own business venture and I know that blogshop/CS6/the tablet/and the adorable other items would really be helpful in making my dreams come true. Thank you Bri!

  • 436. Ashleigh @ Jolie Jouel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:43 am

    Oh wow, this is an amazing giveaway! Add me to the list. I want to go to blogshop to learn new photoshop techniques for my blog, Jolie Jouel. My blog is only about 8 months old but I love it and am putting in the time to make it as good as it can be. This opportunity would allow me make Jolie Jouel that much better. All of the other prizes I could really use too…such pretty pieces! Thanks :)

  • 437. Lindsay  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:43 am

    This giveaway is ridiculously inspiring! I would be THRILLED to join you at the next Blogshop for so many reasons, the biggest being the chance to share, learn, listen and create with other talents! Getting my blog started once and for all is also huge, and getting all the crazy ideas into one spot, but being inspired for a full weekend – WOW! The unique wink Blogshop offers would be an amazing thing to be immersed in and implement in my own forum. Fingers crossed for this fabulous, fabulous opportunity!

  • 438. Anna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:43 am

    I’m studying to become a graphic designer and would love the chance to to attend blogshop in order to learn more about blogging and maybe start one of my own!

  • 439. Jordi  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:43 am

    I think “Big Time Giveaway” is an understatement! This would be awesome. Some lucky person is going to have their day completely made by winning this! Such a great opportunity.

  • 440. Lindsey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:43 am

    Phenomenal giveaway! I’ve had my blog for 3 years and have spruced it up quite a bit…. with the help of other designers and professionals. I’d love to be able to easily and quickly gussy it up on a whim on my own! Plus, it would be great to meet you! :)

  • 441. Rhy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:44 am

    This is such a great idea! I’ve wanted to attend your blogshop for a while but somehow my savings always ended up elsewhere….this is a great opportunity! I did recently start a new blog! I think this would be great to master tips & tricks. Plus get fun accessories!!! (also tweeted as “@tsukarerudesu”

  • 442. Tori  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:45 am

    WOW. What a giveaway! I would love to attend Blogshop so I can launch my academic blog–in an aesthetically pleasing way. I have been lusting over Photoshop for years now and would lovelovelove to own it finally!

  • 443. josephine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:45 am

    I would love to go to Blogshop to get inspired and to learn some skills on how to spruce up my blog. I’m always really impressed by the enthusiasm, creativity, and positive attitude that surrounds these classes. I’d love to be a part of it.

  • 444. Morgan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:45 am

    Love this! I’m a novice blogger and am eager to learn more. Love your work!

  • 445. Anna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:45 am

    Whoooa! I would love to win. My little blog could always use a spruce.

  • 446. Laura  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:46 am

    Freshly squeezed from University life, I recently started working as an account coordinator and I’m learning the ropes about managing the social media and blogging side for all clients. I’d also love to spruce up my rather sad blog with some blogshop magic.
    Plus that yellow tote is absolutely wonderful. I’m thinking it would look even better on my arm to tote my laptop around.
    Fingers crossed you pick me!

  • 447. Genna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:46 am

    I would love to start a blog. I have admired blogs and the gals and guys who do them forever. I think I could have a smashing blog being a college student having a job and just a fun and crazy life over all. I need to win for school alone! That tablet would be stellar in class! I think my college needs a girl with a great blog to show them a new perspective. Thank you for offering this give away.

  • 448. Grace  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:46 am

    I am a recent studio art grad trying to create a career for myself. It seems the things I enjoy doing and hours I keep aren’t exactly conducive to the available jobs I’ve seen out there these days. I feel that this opportunity could help me to articulate why it is I love art and design and how I could uniquely translate what’s in my head to the vastness of the Internet and have people take notice.

  • 449. Kat Skull  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:47 am

    I’ve had my blog open for a little while and I have big ambitions and aspirations for it, but little training and know-how. This blogshop giveaway would give me such a boost in the right direction and keep me inspired for many posts to come!

  • 450. Kylie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:47 am

    I think I would re-gift the blogshop entrance because I’m in school and wouldn’t be able to attend, but everything else would be fantastic to help with my blog… I’ve been blogging for about 6 months.

  • 451. Fox Courage  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:47 am

    This is a dream contest! I have been wanting to attend a blogshop event from the very start but haven’t been able to convince myself that my as-yet-non-public blog is worth the cost. I know blogging is the next step for me–professionally and personally–but I need a push and some confidence and this kind of event/community would be just what I need to move forward. I have a blog (tiny, weird, unpublished) but I would LOVE to get it to the point where I could be proud to show it to anyone else!

    I have fingers and toes crossed! Good luck, everyone! <3

  • 452. Victoria@VictoryPaper  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:47 am

    holy moly what a giveaway! i’ve been blogging for a little over a year and i’m dying to attend blogshop in sf! i’m a graphic designer so the wacom tablet and PS would be an enormous tool for my business! thanks bri! xo

  • 453. Adrienne  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:48 am

    This is a wonderful thing for you to do! I’d love to attend Blogshop and experience it for myself, as I am looking to make some pretty big life changes. A new direction, following my passions, and finally having the nerve to step out and do it. I’d love to learn more about blogging and presenting myself to the world, and from all I have read on your blog, this would be the perfect place to start….

  • 454. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:48 am

    Hooray! This is such a wonderful giveaway. Whoever wins this bad boy will be a lucky one! I am a regular blogger, but have come & gone for a while now because I do not feel like the work is really my own. Having a creative mind & being crippled because of a lack of understand of the tools at hand can be a bit…well tough. Fingers, toes & pigtails crossed!

  • 455. Josie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:48 am

    Oh, well heavens. Obviously I need to win so you and I can hang out during your ATL blogshop. I mean, really. I’d even try to look artsy and cute for you. Or… just the same old me.

  • 456. Brittany - Life of a Bama Girl  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:48 am

    Oh boy! This is an amazing giveaway. I love playing around with Photoshop Elements and would really love to learn Photoshop. My blog needs a fresh new look but I want to do it myself so it is taking a little time to figure everything out. This class would be great to speed things up! I enjoy looking through the pictures from your classes they look like so much fine!

  • 457. Rosa @ FlutterFlutter  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:58 am

    I would LOVE to win!!!! I need tips! I OH SO BADLY miss working in a firm with other designers, and would love to come hang with one of your fab groups. And did I mention that I’m super fun?! ;) I’ve been wanting to refresh my blog in a major way… this would be such a great opportunity!

  • 458. Jessica @ Six Eighty Eight  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:59 am

    Wow – this would be everything! I’ve had a blog for a couple years now and am in desperate need of learning how to spruce things up with the end goal of getting more readers. I have a passion and a voice that I want to share. Being able to attend Blogshop (I believe) would definitely take my blog into a new direction. Wishin – hopin – and prayin you pick me!!!

  • 459. Missy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:59 am

    I want to win so that I can start a graphic design blog. What an amazing giveaway!

  • 460. Katie LC  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:59 am

    I’ve always wanted to attend blogshop! Great idea for a giveaway to help out some broke graduate students ;)

  • 461. Liz  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:00 pm

  • 462. Jenny  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    Oh wow! I’d love to attend Blogshop to get the chance to mingle with all the amazing people there!(Crosses everything on body in hope!)

  • 463. Patricia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    I would love to join the blogshop. I have a blog, but it’s no where close to where I want to be. I also want to launch a blog for work and would love all the tips I can get! Big fan. Thanks for setting up this amazing giveaway!

  • 464. Jamie Bartlett  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    Wow everything in this giveaway is awesome! I have a blog that I’ve been running with my husband for a little while now. It was growing but now it is kind of at a stand still. I need help to get over the hump and start growing again. Leaning new techniques at one of your classes I’m sure would do the trick. Also I wouldn’t mind carrying that yellow tote around either ;).

  • 465. Tiffany  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    WOOOWWWEEE this is an amazing giveaway! I would love to win especially since I have always wanted to take the blogshop class. Plus the newest Photoshop Elements is any budding photographer’s dream come true!!
    beijos,
    Tiffany

  • 466. Bernadette  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    I am beginning to work on my freelance photography career and I am so impressed by other photographer/bloggers’ lives as displayed on their blogs. I need to learn how to share my personal and business life! And I definitely need to improve my Photoshop skills! I would be honored to take part in Blogshop!

    SO EXCITED! Can’t wait for the results!!

  • 469. Jamy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    What a dream, Bri! I’ve been wanting to attend blogshop for the past two years as I’d love to learn how to add sweet, personal messages to Fourth Street. Even if I do not win, I am so enamored by this generous giveaway, I’ll be elated for the person that does win! So sweet of you. Xo.

  • 470. Aimee  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    Such a great giveaway! I would love to attend Blogshop to learn from experienced bloggers on how to start my food blog. It’s always better to learn from people who’ve done it before and know what works. And it would also be a great way to meet creative bloggers!

  • 471. Elyse  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    I would flip at the opportunity to attend blogshop. I’ve completed my graphic design degree, internships, and am looking to be a blogshop student success. My blog? It’s content and ideas exist in countless notebooks and files. I know blogshop would be the omph I need to hit publish!

  • 472. zoë  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    OH EM GEE! I want this REAL BAD. I’ve been starting and restarting my blog for the past couple years and I just haven’t had that little extra something that makes me feel like it is special enough. I miss school and learning, too! Going to blogshop would be just the little spark and kick in the pants that I NEEED. please please. There’s no way I could ever pay for it, either, that’s just the truth (waitresses don’t get quite that much)

  • 473. erin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    wait a gd minute. did you happen to see my tweet yesterday about winning the lottery in order to attend blogshop? i think this counts as winning the lotto. i want to go so badly to help get my biz as a interior designer kicked into high gear, but funds have been tight, (actually non-existant) and this would make it possible. ahhh!!! fingers and eyeballs crossed!!

  • 474. sarah  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    whoa, amazing giveaway! i would love to go to blogshop and fix up my rusty ol’ blog. i would ESPECIALLY love to check out the video blogshop, so i can start adding a wider variety of content to my blog. so much fun!

  • 475. ashley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    oh i would oh so LOVE to attend blogshop!
    i’ve started/restarted/deleted/restarted/banged my head against my desk/restarted my blog 15 million times- so i could definitely use some help getting something started.

    i’ve lost all motivation to soldier on- so this would totally help!

  • 476. Cassidy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    WOW! What a dream! I’ve got a 3-year old blog and a new business, both of which could use some design love / a kick in the photoshop pants! I’m always thinking of reimagining the ‘ol blog and would love to do so with some DLF skills in my back pocket!

  • 477. Crystal  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    There are so many reasons why I would love to attend Blogshop. The cool teachers. The awesome atmosphere. The ideas. But most of all I would like to attend to give my current blog a boost. I am pretty computer illiterate and I don’t have the budget to hire someone to do it for me or even attend Blogshop! So this would be a little bit of a dream come true for me. Good luck everyone!

  • 478. Jamie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    I’d LOVE the opportunity to be able to come to blogshop! As a photographer and a graphic designer, I want to gain the confidence to put what I know, what I love and what I’m inspired by on my blog. You are constantly moving, never do the same thing twice, and I would love to learn how you keep your momentum and your passion! I thrive off of being around creativity, and would relish in being able to be around a ton of wonderfully inspirational and creative people. Oh pick me pick me, I promise, I’ll be your very best student! (And bring lots of dahlias and baked goods from the farm I do some work for). <3!

  • 479. Sarah  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    I would LOVE to be a part of blogshop because the experience is one-of-a-kind.

    As a publicist, I would love to acquire these skills and introduce them in to my professional career. I also have dreams of starting a blog, but I am a perfectionist in all things and would want to be a total expert.

    Amazing giveaway!

    Thank you xx

  • 480. Elizabeth G.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    I attend an art school in Philadelphia where I have taken a class on web media, I’d really like to get more into the creation of a personal site. The BlogShop classes look insanely fun & something that would really interest me!

  • 481. Courtney  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    My husband is a photographer, and I am a graphic designer. I would love to be able to learn some quick and fancy ways to spruce up his photo blog while enhancing my design skills all the same. My own blog is also in the works, and the more I could learn the better. It would truly be a dream come true to get to go to blogshop! But the #1 reason to come to blogshop would be all the wonderful inspiration I know I would get with such a great group of people!

  • 482. Lindsay  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    I need to perfect my PS to take my blog to the next level!

  • 483. Sheena Louise Roetman  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    OMG! I would probably start crying if I won this! I’m in the process of launching my own nanny business and plan on heavily incorporating a blog and social media. I have a degree in journalism so I don’t need help with the writing, and my partner has a business degree so thats taken care of also. The only thing we’re lacking is a basic knowledge of graphic design & photography. I’ve been wanting to do Blogshop since the last time you came to Atlanta, but between time and money I haven’t been able to make it. Hopefully I’ll see you in November!!

  • 484. Shay Lianna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:05 pm

    OH my god, this is the most amazing giveaway I’ve ever seen!

    Reasons why I’d love to go to Blogshop: I actually really like design, but I have SO much trouble with Photoshop and the other Creative Suite products. But I really want to be able to work on the design of my blog myself. Knowing Photoshop backwards and forwards would also REALLY help me in work!

    And, you ladies seem awesome and Blogshop is something I’ve really wanted to do, but can’t afford!

    xo,

    This is amazing! Thank you so much for hosting this incredible giveaway!

    I’ve been dreaming of going to blogshop to further my graphic design business and blog. I’ve been blogging for two year and I’m a full time graphic designer based in Atlanta. My business is growing daily and I’m ready for some tools and tips for taking it to the next level! :D

    I suppose the main reason I’d really love to come to blogshop would be to be able to create a blog that would inspire people and simply put a smile on their face. I have an insane passion for photography and I really believe every great photographer needs a blog to allow people to have a second look. Besides wanting to gain the skills, it’s not everyday that you can pick what teacher you would want to teach a class; a class taught by someone who you already look up to is just too much to ask for! I would really love the chance to be there :).

  • 487. Gabriela  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    It’s been quite a while I’ve been working on my blog, some times I’m very exited, others I just let time pass by without posting. Lack of inspiration and time I think. Improving my photoshop skills will definitely help my blog and my motivation. Plus I’m starting a business in marketing and events, so this class will be nothing but helpful.

  • 488. Jackie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    BlogShop has been something I’ve wanted to attend since I first heard about it. I am a self-taught Photoshopper, so learning in the classes would solidify my current skills and help me develop new ones. I’m in the process of sprucing up my blog and getting back to regular content (after a 8 month break). Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • 489. sara  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    My jaw just dropped when I saw your HUGE giveaway. This is like Christmas. I would LOVE to win this giveaway for the chance to go to a blogshop class and for the Adobe suite! Both are such amazing tools to help any aspiring blogger/artist/graphic designer like myself. Thank you for hosting such a lovely gift giving! I will be truly happy for any lucky person to win this dreamboat, but I really would love to win :)

    I’m new to the blog thing. I’m not a writer. I’m not a designer. I don’t have a Canon EOS 5D Mark II 21.1MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera for fancy food porn (not that I’m not coveting it mind you, I totally am.) I have a vision in my head and need help with making it reality. That’s where blogshop comes in. Because I need you to take me from blog newbie to blog rockstar.

  • 492. Daria  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    Wow! I would like to win this and take part in blogshop because I am a lecturer myself and I’d like to learn some new teaching methods from you and add some fun to my classes and seminars (I teach a short-term course of interior design). What is more I want to take my interior design blog to a new level and I think this is an amazing opportunity. Hope so much to win this!

  • 493. Kara  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    I want to come to blogshop because I do a lot of blog/social media work for two of my jobs and I think there are some tips and tricks I could use up my sleeve.

    Plus the rest of that haul is slammin. ha ha

    :)

  • 494. Natalie Shapiro  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    Hi Bri! I am a senior & graphic design major at California State University San Marcos. After I graduate this December, I am starting my own freelance, design business and would gain so much wisdom from your Blogshop class. My grandest dream is for my drawings, paintings, designs and photography to bring home the bacon. I have a blog of some of my work, but it desperately needs help. The items in the Giveaway would be such a blessing, because I have had to rely on my university’s equipment. Please, help a sista out! haha :)

  • 495. Caroline  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    I would absolutely LOVE to attend one of the Blogshops! And the additional goodies – what a fabulous bonus!! For the past few months I have been planning out a blog and this course would definitely help to make it amazing! Fingers (and toes) crossed!!

  • 496. Rylie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    BEST. THING. EVER! I love everything on this list.
    I have a blog that would benefit greatly from this win. haha. :)

  • 497. Kimberly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    I want to come to Blogshop because I’m getting ready to launch a party and events website and need help making everything look as punchy as possible!

  • 498. NPW  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    I’d love to win so I can revamp my 6-year old blog and make it exciting and fresh! This giveaway sounds amazing. I wish everyone could win!

  • 499. kirsten  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:09 pm

  • 500. Jewel at Eat.Drink.Shop.Love  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    I am an Atlanta based blogger and my blog is in need of a little sprucing up. I can’t afford to pay for a blog shop class on my own so this opportunity would be a chance of a lifetime!

  • 501. jessica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    oh my! this is the best giveaway on the internet today! i want to go to blogshop to spruce up my current blog. i want to freshen up my skills. meet crazy creative people. and find inspiration. pick me!

  • 502. Kayla Hood  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    Hi Designlovefest! I’ve just been bitten by the blog bug and I think I could use some help and umph from blogshop to send me on my way! Thanks for the great giveaway

  • 503. Amy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    What a fabulous give away! It wld be such a joy to win. I have been dreaming of starting up a blog and etsy shop to peddle my crafty wares. This wld give me all of the tools to do it in style.

  • 504. Christen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    Hi! OMG this is insane! I love it!
    I would love love love to come to a blog shop, so that I can improve my blogging and learn tricks to make my blog as beautiful as yours is everyday! I look forward to your colourful posts and unique finds when I open up my reader every morning. Thanks for all of the great advice thus far :)

  • 505. Politimi Mackres  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    This is such an incredible gift, and I would be beyond thrilled/so lucky to be chosen. I’ve created a blog in hopes of sparking interest of potential employers and as you can see I am at a loss. I have no idea where to start. I know the direction and advice I would receive at your Blogshop would be worth so much more than all these gifts combined (although each would still be greatly appreciated :)). The advice you give on your blog has helped me tremendously, especially your resume post, and I can’t even image all the knowledge I will gain from meeting you both in person. Thank you for this opportunity and for your commitment to your blog and followers!

  • 506. la domestique  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    I desperately want to come to blogshop! I’ve got a blog and my husband is very involved helping me edit photos and layout posts, but i want to learn photoshop and be empowered to do these things myself. The blog and freelance work it gets me are what I do full time, and the blogshop experience would have a huge impact on my livelihood. If I could be more independent in editing photos/video and laying out posts, my programmer husband could spend his time helping me innovate in bigger ways- like developing mobile apps. Thank you for giving a spot to one of your readers!

  • 507. Kylie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    To spruce up my own blog! I’ve been dying to learn these skills!

  • 508. McKenna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    What a lovely assortment of goodies! I would love to attend Blogshop, absolutely. I am a student currently majoring in Design and while I feel strong in my studies, every little tidbit of help in the blogging world means bunches to me. I haven’t been able to afford my own copy of Photoshop, so having my own to use outside of our labs would be beyond wonderful! Thank you for this stellar giveaway! (I may have a smidge of drool on my desk at the moment.)

  • 509. Lori  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    Amazing giveaway – each item itself is fab!

  • 510. Sarah.A  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    I was just writing a list of updates I need to do for my blog/website as it’s way overdue. Blogshop would be the perfect way to learn some fun things in a super creative environment (which is necessary when working from home gets a bit boring) and get inspired to create some wonderful new design.

  • 511. Eunice  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    I’ve always had a blog, off and on, but I feel like I’ve never been inspired enough or felt like I had a blog that was good enough looking that even I would want to read it! I want to go to a blogshop to help me spruce it up so I can be proud to say that I made it myself!

  • 512. Jessica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:12 pm

    I read your blog every day at work and it helps inspire me to get through the day so I can do soemthing creative after work and bring some joy to my work week. I would love to start my own blog and I am trying to get into graphic design. Just got my mac book pro but now I need Photoshop! I’ve been dying to go to a blog shop. They all look amazing!

  • 513. Kate {domestikatedlife}  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    Awesome giveaway! I would love to win to improve my blog, I feel like not knowing photoshop has been exactly what’s holding me back from turning a good blog into a great blog. Plus I’d love to meet other like-minded bloggers who have a passion for improving their sites too!

  • 514. Keely  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    I would love to go to Blogshop because I am still trying to figure out this whole blogging business! It’s been so much fun so far, I would love to meet some awesome bloggers in person!

  • 515. Jenny B  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    I’m trying to spruce up the blog and open an online shop so I can work from home… love your style, design, everything! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • 516. Amy B  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    I would L-O-V-E to win this giveaway and get to go to Blogshop! I started a personal blog a while ago and enjoyed blogging, but I got frustrated dealing with it because I didn’t know what I was doing. I’ve been wanting to get some more skills and start it up again because I’ve been so inspired by what I see on designlovefest. This would be an absolutely incredible experience.

  • 517. Beckie@Cubicle57  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    I love watching the blogshop aesthetic take the internet by storm. Everytime you come to New York, I chicken out about $$ and then you sell out so quick. Would love to win a spot so I can stop faking it and start making it!

  • 518. Jillian  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    I have dreams of making the freelance jump some day and I know a blogshop would help the transition a ton!!!! <3

  • 519. Amber Lavoie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    This is so awesome! I’m working on adding more fun graphical elements to my personal blog and starting a blog for a new business! Blogshop would help me to streamline my workflow and add some unique elements! – Amber *fingers crossed*

  • 520. Courtney  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    This is such an amazing giveaway, thank you for being so generous! I saved up money to go to the LA blogshop but it sold out before I had the chance to buy a ticket, so maybe this would be a chance to get in one in LA?! Hey, can’t hurt a girl for trying! :-)

  • 521. Hannah K  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    I would absolutely love to attend Blogshop! I really want a beautifully crafted blog where I can showcase my skills and products (calligraphy/cards). I just don’t know how to create one! With this new blog, I can support my family and myself too.

  • 522. Lauren Ashley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Going to blogshop would be a dream come true for me! My blog (aka Tickle My Fancy)is my baby, only 9 months old, so I have a lot of nurturing, growing, and learning to do. I’m already so grateful to be a part of this amazing community, and I desperately want to expand and add more of my voice to the beautiful chorus of creativity out there. Look for my tweet (@L_Ashley) too! Thanks so much for this awesome chance! xo

  • 523. Caitlin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    designlovefest is the very reason I started my own blog…I can’t start my day without stopping here for inspiration first : ) I would LOVE the chance to attend blogshop to learn the tricks of the trade from the industries best!

  • 524. Jennifer Otto  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    I am really interested in starting my own blog but really haven’t known how to go about it (except the very basics). I think this site is going to help me be able to start one that will really shine brightly. Even if I don’t win, I’d like to say thanks for your site!

  • 525. Sarah Moore  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    I would be excited to win…well any of these amazing prizes really, so the fact they are all in one blows my mind. As a recent college grad, I am trying to get my portfolio and personality out there via blog/website and am in the process. To have the opportunity to attend blogshop and learn from someone who has done so well doing exactly this would be unreal. Cheers on the opportunity!

  • 526. Nace  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Awesome giveaway. I have blog and web site i use and make by with teaching myself tips and tricks to make my stud look semi professional. I want a professional look and would love to be a part of the incredible event. I hve came a long way with teaching myself photoshop and blogging but it’s time for me to take it to the next level. With your help I can achieve my goals of pursuing my dreams!!

  • 527. Jessica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    I’m making the jump to full time freelance design and think that I need to get serious about blogging as a way to stay inspired and drum up some fabulous new clients.

  • 528. Shelby Rosson  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    Quite Frankly….My friend and I need a new job. We have been pondering the thought of a blog and using our craftiness to support ourselves. This would push us over the edge and allow us to get started. xoxo

  • 529. Lulu  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    Oh my poor blog. It was abandoned after my twin girls were born. Two year ago… It’s time to start again to regain a bit of sanity and maybe a part of myself.

  • 530. Rachel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    Any of these prizes would be AMAZING, but all of them together? Holy smokes! I would love to come to blogshop to spruce up my existing blog. It really needs a makeover :/

  • 531. Nora Griffin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    I have been fortunate to have my little blog for over seven years and always love learning new ways to improve it. This is one of the best giveaways I have ever seen….thanks so much for the chance!

  • 532. Kristen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:18 pm

    I live across the country from my best friend Cassidy (http://cassidyrussell.com/home.html), and we have dreams of starting a blog version of our childhood notebook we used to mail back and forth. We’re both artists, and really need a creative outlet and a way to connect! I (and she) would be over the moon if I could come to the SF blogshop.

  • 533. Julie Fletcher  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    i started my blog last summer about my travels across america for Phi Mu fraternity as a chapter consultant…now entering graduate school I am continuing and definitely need to up my blogging skills.

    I’d love the note cards and desk accessories. you cannot beat a hand written note!

    I also tweeted…@bunkiemonkie

  • 534. Andrea  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    I am looking for the inspiration and the push I need to follow my dreams! I am very eager to learn and build upon the working knowledge I already have to take my skills to new heights! xoxo

  • 535. Rachel B  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    What an amazing giveaway! I feel like my personal blog is kinda in rut. I’m confident that attending blogshop who help get me out of my blog funk, improve my (super limited) Photoshop skills and introduce me to creative bloggers and crafters!

  • 536. Hannah  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    My sister and I started our blog over a year ago and would love to take it to the next level. Blogshop would be an amazing way to soak up a ton of knowledge quickly. Plus, being able to get photoshop would truly be a valuable asset. xoxo, thank you for offering such amazing giveaways!

  • 537. Laura Scullin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    I actually have an entire essay I wrote to my interactive advertising company about why I want to go to BlogShop. I’m a writer who loves to design. And while I don’t want to design for a living, everything you teach in BlogShop is what makes me feel like me.

    They liked the class, the everygirl article on the founders and my essay so much they gave me a $1,072 education assistance grant for hotel + tickets!!! When my car broke down that day, it ended up costing $1055. I spent the extra $17 on wine. (Well $15 on wine, $2 on chocolate)

    And now, the day after you post a San Francisco class in November that depressed me all over again about my stolen grant money — ANOTHER CHANCE!!

    I’ll budget out for cs6, and i’d desperately love a wacom tablet — but nowhere near as much as the experience.

    Please oh please. This is my lottery.

  • 538. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    This is amazing! I would love to attend blogshop to brush up my Photoshop skills! The goodies are beautiful!

  • 539. nicole b.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    If I win, I would send my husband ~ that is, if you allow boys. ;) He is a freelance photographer and would benefit from this creative and educational experience. I am his biggest cheerleader, and I believe he can do BIG things! Thanks for the chance to win. xo.

  • 540. Karissa Ferguson  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    I would love to attend blogshop! I am really interested in opening a little children’s shop and would want an incredible blog to go along with it. I love looking at your posts from blogshop and I’ve never dreamed I would be able to go, but maybe this could be my chance :) I would especially love to learn more about taking top notch photos and finding my own voice in my shop and in blogland. Plus, my husband is an incredible photographer, we can’t really fit it in our budget to purchase photoshop but I would be absolutely thrilled to surprise him with it. That thought makes me happier than any of the prizes :)

  • 541. Crystal  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    I would absolutely love to attend Blogshop! I am a graphic designer who was introduced into the social media marketing world and would love to expand my creativity in my writing on our blog. I am new at blogging, and would love to learn from the best of the best in hopes to enhanced and expand my knowledge. Thank you!

  • 542. Anna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    What an awesome give away! I seriously freaked out a little bit after reading this post. I would love to go to blogshop because I am a part-time freelance graphic designer who would LOVE to start a blog. The only thing is if I start a blog… I want to do it right. Blogshop would be a great stepping stone, full of knowledge and inspiration. It would also be an awesome networking tool to meet other aspiring creatives!

  • 543. Chelsea  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    Woohoo!

    I want to spruce of the one I have AND start a totally different one. A girl can’t just have one. I spend so much time helping other grow their brands that I’d love the chance to focus on my own, even if it’s just for a weekend! Plus, that orange leather laptop case needs to be in my possession!

  • 544. Kailani Andrade  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    I seriously have been dying to go to blogshop since last July. I met Bri at LUCKYFABB and told her one day I would attend but being a college student it isn’t in my budget. I would love to attend to learn how to make my blog stick out just like designlovefest. I would die if I received the amazing wacom tablet !!!

  • 545. Amy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    I have a blog but it looks tired and I have been trying to convince my husband that this class is a: more awesome then taking get to know photoshop from a university b: cheaper and c: I would leave happier! My blog needs a little love I am sure I can only learn here!
    Thanks for awesome inspiration!
    Amy

  • 546. Marie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    If I had all of these goodies I would start a blog. :)

  • 547. MB  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    I would love to attend Blogshop! It would help my blog and store to sky rocket! How you use and manipulate your photos and images is the key to success nowadays. Thus, the ability to perfect those skills is priceless!

  • 548. Sara  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    Ohh it would be amazing to give my blog a makeover and learn new things about blogging, and try to reach out to more than just my friends and family with my blog.
    (and the cs6 and that great yellow tote – wauaw :))

  • 549. ari  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    HELP!!! I love your fun, bright and witty blog. I would love the same for my salon blog. I’m in the Temescal District in Oakland and it’s where all the “cool kids” hang out and I’m not feeling that my blog reflects the “coolness” of the shop ;-)

  • 550. Paola  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    I rarely enter giveaways but this is amazing! I would love to take blogshop so I can learn how to improve my little blog and to get to know other bloggers.

  • 551. Em the Gem  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    I want to win this giveaway like whoa. Not only have I been dying to go to Blogshop but that Tablet! Must have!

  • 552. Sara B  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Love this giveaway! Wanting to start a blog but feeling utterly lost. Blogshop and Photoshop are musts but the price point is prohibitive. Winning this would be life changing :) thanks for the opportunity to dream a little!

  • 553. Allie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    This wins the contest for best giveaway ever!

    I want to go to blogshop because I want to grow my little blog into something that I’m proud of and I don’t feel ashamed in sending clients to.

    The wacom tablet and that gorgeous yellow bag would just sweeten the deal ;)

  • 554. Kelsey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    OH MY WORD! This giveaway is absolutely blowing my mind! So many AMAZING THINGS!!! I’ve wanted to attend blogshop from the first moment I discovered your blog…it’s sounds like the most incredible experience :D

  • 555. Maryam  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    Why? Because I’m just starting a personal lifestyle blog and could use the help!

  • 556. Shannon  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:28 pm

    What an incredible giveaway! I have a blog that I don’t update much anymore, but have ideas for a new blog stirring around in my head. I’d love to win this giveaway to learn more about using photoshop and apply those skills to create a better blog. Going to blogshop would be an amazing learning experience and an awesome way to meet eager bloggers and creative people!

  • 557. Ashleigh  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    Eeek! I would LOVE the opportunity to come to blogshop! I am a grad student just breaking into consulting and this would be an incredibly helpful learning experience. I desperately need blogging advice! I’m hoping eventually to begin my own company for branding but currently only handling blogs & social media for clients. Oh, and I’m swooning over all of the adorable giveaway items.

  • 558. Sarah White  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    Possibly the best roundup for a giveaway EVER ladies! Fingers crossed I’m the lucky winner!!!! This would definitely set me up for heading back to grad school! I’d love to attend a blogshop to brush up on all the wonderful skills for my thesis blog!

  • 559. Tori Baldridge  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    LOVE everything about this giveway! I need all the help I can get when it comes to blogging ;)

  • 560. Bri  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    This giveaway is A.MAZ.ING! I have started a blog, but I need some serious help getting the visual piece figured out. I have so many ideas, I just need the knowledge to turn these ideas into a reality. This would get me moving in the right direction!

  • 561. Jennifer A  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:30 pm

    Because 2 post, no categories, untagged photos and drab type does not a blog make. Scoping some tips from the pioneers at the Nov. SF Blogshop would be a dream.

    I want to spruce up my blog – I want to learn more about blogging and getting it out there. I think this package would help me beyond belief!

  • 563. Heather  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    What a sweet giveaway!
    I’d love to come to blogshop and learn some new tips and tricks for my web design business ;)

  • 564. erika @ rouge&whimsy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    i would love love love to attend blogshop. i’m slowly growing my blog but i need some major design skills and a little biz boost to really get it going!!

  • 565. Emily Hart  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    I’m all sorts of amazed about this giveaway! And, yes, I’d love to win. I’ve found a home in all things photography and graphic design related since starting my blog over a year ago. It’s my happy place, and a chance to attend Blogshop would be the hap-hap-happiest part of it! :)

  • 566. Meg Sonnenberg  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    Whoa baby! I would die and go to blogger heaven if I won this giveaway! As I work for myself and curate/blog each and everyday.. the ticket and all these essentials would go so far for me. Thanks for hosting such a lovely giveaway! (fingers crossed)

  • 567. kimberly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    Whoa. I almost fell off my ball. Yes, I sit on a ball at work and deal with countless hello-HR-I-may-or-may-not-be-consistently-‘harassed’-if-I-didn’t-have-a-sense-of-humor-on-ball-jokes. Oh, how we pass the hours… Anyway, I was sitting on my ball, going about my business, making my first visit to DesignLoveFest of the day (I think I hit your site at least 50 times per 24 hour intervals) and saw this giveaway before my very eyes! Before I made my comedic feat off my awesome ‘modern derriere contraption’, I decided to compose myself and pull it together. Embarrassment can wait – I must enter! So here I am, explaining my reason for entering your fantabulous contest and hoping I stand out among the lovely ladies (and gentlest of men). Here’s the deal: I am among your breed as a full time multitasker. Not only do I have a full time technology laden video job at a highly esteemed company, I also balance my time between multiple creative freelance jobs – photography, web design, graphic design, video specialist services, blog design, filmmaking, and being a twin sister (yep!) – in addition to my several writing and art projects. Whew! If anyone could empathize, it would be the lovely ladies of DesignLoveFest. A blog I truly enjoy. So my reason is simple, I would beyond cherish the BlogShop course. It would influence and streamline my work so I could better create a product for my clients and myself. And gollywollygeewhiz did your sponsors provide some crazay cool stuff! Thanks for this opportunity!

  • 568. Lucía  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    I’d love to have a place on your BLOGSHOP!!! I´ve been following your blog for more time than I can remember, and as a designer student, it would be thrilling to start a blog like yours, but I´m missing that final push to help me get this party started! Also, this is the first giveaway in which I can participate, as I live in Argentina, and I’m already excited just for being able to participate! So a big thank you! just for that, and for inspiring me to search every day for more and more inspiring objects in the web and outside at the world! xx Lucía

  • 569. Sabrina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    I would love to win this giveaway so my husband and I could go to Blog Shop together!! This would be such a great learning experience for the both of us to share and the extra goodies such as Oh Joy!’s new book would be the extra cherry on top!

  • 570. Carmel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    This is such a fantastic giveaway! I would really love to catapult my fledgling blog with the amazing things I’d learn from blogshop. I’ve got so many ideas in my head, but extracting them and putting them into blog form can get tricky. Would love inspiration from successful bloggers and peers.

  • 571. Jamie Crouthamel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:34 pm

    I would love, love, LOVE a spot for Blogshop to help me bring my humble little blog up to some seriously sleek design levels!

  • 573. Amanda  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    Wow! What an amazing giveaway. I need some serious help on how to get my blog started! I run a small letterpress business on the side but I’d love for it to grow into a full time business. I know I need to online presence for this to happen, but I find myself just as shy on the internet as I am in person. Fingers crossed! Blogshop sounds like a dream come true.

  • 574. Rebecca in NC  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:36 pm

  • 575. kelsie rae  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    I feel like I’m at this awkward stage with my blog content and design where I just don’t know where it’s going. I need help! Me winning this would be like a 8 year old winning a trip to meet Mickey at Disney World, a literal dream come true!

  • 576. Michaela Rae  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    Wow! What a giveaway! I’m excited about every single thing included – especially Blogshop. I hope to open my own store someday and I know the online side of it will play a huge role – I could learn so many helpful tips. Plus, I have a personal blog that could benefit as well. :-) michaela.jaros(at)yahoo(dot)com.

  • 577. Jessie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:36 pm

    Would love to attend blogshop. Can never learn enough about any of the Adobe products!

  • 578. Emily  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    I would LOVE to come to Blogshop! I am a photographer who happens to blog, and while I’m familiar with all the great tools that Photoshop has to offer, it would be awesome to continue my learning with a second (and third, and fourth, etc!) set of eyes! It would be so awesome!

  • 579. robin pulsifer  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    hi and this give~away is beyond amazing. i took a photoshop course through a community college years ago. the guy teaching it was the artist for our local newspaper. it was good but i felt like it was geared too broadly and not toward the style/type/effect i was looking for. so of course by now, the “how to” part of photoshop has escaped me. i do have a blog and would LOVE to be able to transform it, and up to a fresh new level. my fingers and toes are crossed!

  • 580. Nicole  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    Have been dreaming about going to blogshop ever since stumbling upon designlovefest.

  • 581. Katalina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    I would love love love love to participate in blogshop. I am taking a creative vacay from my block to step back and reflect on where i want it to go and how i can integrate it more into my new consulting business in international development (very different from a lifestyle blog). I think this would be a perfect part of that journey.

    Katalina

  • 582. Anne  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    I would love to go to a blogshop!! one, b/c you get to meet a ton of other creative minds. which is always very encouraging and inspiring. two, i would love to gain more photoshop skills. i am a texas wedding photographer but i also like to be in control of designing my own brand. so i have a blog but am ready to spruce it up!! i love to learn and want to become more excellent at what i do for my clients!

  • 583. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    I would love to attend blogshop!! I am starting a new business and it would be so helpful. And I wouldn’t mind having any of the other awesome items in this giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win.

  • 584. Jamie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    holy cow! how exciting! i would super love to attend a blogshop to learn graphic design tips. everything i’ve learned is trial & error. i’m sure there are so many shortcuts that would be so helpful! plus you blogshop ladies have amazing style, i’m sure i’d learn what i want to learn instead of say a night course.
    exciting! thanks so much darlings!!

  • 585. Kyle Patrick  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    I volunteer with a lot of non-profits that don’t have money for designers of any kind. When they can’t afford to hire someone, they are always left with a product well below today’s standards. I’d love to be able to up my blogging/design game to carry over into my professional career and use it as a tool to help out organizations without the funds or ability to do so on their own.

  • 586. Julia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    gosh that’s a pretty unique goodiebag! :D i would love to visit blogshop as i just recently started blogging and would love to learn everything!

  • 587. Taylor Rae  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    OMG this giveaway is INSANE!!! Bri you are the best.

    I would love to go to Blogshop in order to spruce up my own blog. As much as I enjoy posting and sharing personal photos I’ve been feeling a bit down about my blog lately. I wan’t it to be so much more than what it is already. I have this vision for my blog that I know Blogshop would help me achieve. Not to mention that Wacome Tablet (*freaking out*). You can contact me via twitter @doseoftay

    Crossing my fingers!

  • 588. jessica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    What an awesome giveaway! I would love to attend blogshop – the photos for both my business and my blog would greatly benefit from it. Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  • 589. Emma  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    This is AMAZING!! I love everything, especially photoshop!! Mine is so outdated from when I was last in school :)

  • 590. leah m  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    blogshop! and all this sweet stuff?! would love a chance to attend blogshop in style to learn more about photo/video editing and use those skills to support non profits who need some help telling their stories. xx

  • 591. Maria Anne  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    YES!
    I’ve wanted so bad to attend ever since blogshop was born! Unfortunately, I never lived in a city where there was one available until I relocated to Chicago, which means now would be the perfect time!
    I’ve had a blog for years but I rarely update it because I can’t make it look like “me.” Blogshop would be a lifesaver, and would make me excited to have a blog again.
    This is an awesome giveaway! Thanks for this!

  • 592. gabrielle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    I would love to win this amazing giveaway! you are an incredible designer and a great inspiration to other designers out there!

  • 593. Nicte Trujillo  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    Holy cow! This is so cool!
    I would love to attend your blogshop because it might just be the spark I need to work better at my blog. I think that sometimes its very hard for me to put a post up because Im not sure its good enough and this blogshopt would be the awesomest way to work through that!!
    I hope I win!!

  • 594. Karina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:41 pm

    I’m a graphic designer and I don’t have a blog yet, but I plan on starting one someday. This giveaway is amazing, most of all because it’s not limited to the US! I’m from South America and I would LOVE to win!

  • 595. Amy Powell  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:41 pm

    holy moly what a great giveaway! I’d love to go to Blog Shop to meet new friends, learn how to be a better blogger, and to take a step outside of the everyday to get inspiration for more great ideas!

    thanks for the giveaway!

  • 596. whitney  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:41 pm

(and getting one of your famous goodie bags!) xxo -Whitney

  • 597. Brianna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:42 pm

    Um, are you sure we win all of this!? That’s crazy wonderful. I’d love to win so I could learn all about creative blogging from the best in the biz. I love exploring new cultures and inspiring everyone else to take a trip or find adventure in their own backyard – and that’s what my blog is all about. It’d be such a great opportunity to take it to the next level with some of your own knowledge :)

  • 598. Dara  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:43 pm

    I would love love love to win this amazing giveaway! I am a graphic designer with a very small blog used for my freelance. Id love to one day take my freelance design work to the next level and hope that an opportunity like this could help me achieve that goal.

  • 599. Shauna Luedtke  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:43 pm

    I would love love love to win this. I go to your blog every single day for inspiration, and would love to start a blog on my custom shoe site, but don’t know where to begin.

    Would be a very inspiring trip and I would be so grateful as I never get to buy myself anything fancy or go on any trips.

    Thanks!

  • 600. Halle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:43 pm

    oh my goodness. i would LOVE to attend blogshop – i’ve had a blog for about a year, and it desperately needs an upgrade. also, it’s my dream to transition into the field of design, and this would be SUCH a great jumping off point (aka i’m clueless about photoshop!) such an amazing giveaway – whoever wins is one lucky person! thanks bri!

  • 601. Amy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    After a few months of some pretty intense personal challenges, winning this package would be awesome. Thanks for the opportunity!

    What an amazing giveaway! I’m just getting into blogging – trying to find my voice, my niche, etc – and would love to learn from some of the best. And the tools to go with the class? This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

  • 604. Jillian  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:45 pm

    What an amazing giveaway!! I’m a graphic designer, currently launching my website, paper goods line, and blog, and this would be an incredible help! I want the blog to serve as design inspiration, a behind-the-scenes look at the company, as well as a modern-day paper etiquette guide. Blogshop (and those fantastic goodies) would really help me launch with confidence and a million new ideas!

  • 605. Lea Frazier  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:45 pm

    My blog and low end design skills could definitely use some added spark. This is such a great giveaway! Fingers crossed.

  • 606. Lindsay Stephany  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    I began a blog last year with great intentions and got totally bogged down with maintaining it along with a new photography website. Reading blogs like Oh Joy! each day is simultaneously inspirational and terrifying. I’d love, love, love to win this giveaway, for the terrific goodies and especially for a spot at Blogshop! Crossing my fingers over here!

  • 607. Amanda  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    Are you kidding? Who wouldn’t want to win these goodies slash attend one of y’alls weekends o’ fun for the sale price of FREE!? Honestly, I’m new to the blog world but I’ve been slowly trying to help friends spice up their legit blogs {unlike mine}. Most folks don’t realize that it’s not just the content, but its the impact of a visually compelling blog that really will increase readability– And I LOVE that you guys have figured out a way to spread that love all around. I’d totally soak in ANY tips/tricks/tools/resources/awesomeness from BLOGSHOP and try to help spread that same love {obviously giving you guys props all around}– Thanks for doing what you do! I wish everyone everywhere could BLOGSHOP. The blog world would be a more beautiful place!

  • 608. Chelsea Tubbs  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    Wow! What an amazing giveaway. I’d love te opportunity to attend blogshop! As a new(ish) blogger with tons of ideas and a lack of funds for photoshop (I’ve been using a combination of power point and screenshots to produce fashion posts eek!) it would be great to win. Blogshop would definitely teach me the skills I need to do something that I actually love as a career!

  • 609. Megan S.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    I would love to win this! I had a blog back in 2003-2004, but I stopped updating after I got married. I’ve been thinking about getting back into it for years and this may be just what I need to get started!

  • 610. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    I would love to go to Blogshop to improve my blog, and I have been itching to learn to use a tablet, so I’d just love that Wacom! Thanks so much! :)

  • 611. Stephanie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:47 pm

    Wow. Could reeeally use some photoshop skills! I’ve been thinking about blogging as a hobby for a while; it seems like it would be a great combination of things I love, but am a bit daunted by the first step forward. I know the experience would be aMAZing!

  • 612. brynn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:48 pm

    Oh my gosh, this is amazing. My blog could definitely do with some sprucing up and even though I have been slowly improving my Photoshop skills, I have lots more to learn! Incredible opportunity!

  • 613. Jen Lake  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:48 pm

    What an amazing giveaway! As if a spot to Blogshop isn’t enough! Over two years of having a blog and working for a commercial photographer, I’ve learned a little about design and photoshop but have never really pushed myself and I think this would be the perfect opportunity!

  • 614. Melanie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:48 pm

    Wow this is truly amazing! I have been excited to attend blogshop ever since the very first class. This will be a great opportunity for me to finally start the blog I’ve been dreaming about. Thank you so much!

  • 615. Christina G. Smith (@Rvaya)  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:48 pm

    To get a chance at winning all these prizes it quite amazing! I would love to go to a blogshop to get to meet a lot of new people that have similar interests. My blog isn’t new but it really could use some help.

    Here is my Twitter tweet as well: https://twitter.com/Rvaya/status/237999503507075072

    Thanks for a chance at this!

  • 616. Sarah  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    Winning this prize would be such an amazing gift for me! I just started my own blog last week, and blogshop would be just the thing to start me off right! Not to mention all the other amazeballs stylish prizes!! Pick mee!

  • 617. Laina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    My blog launched in July and I need some insight on how to make it stand out from the rest. As a graphic designer, I feel that I’m on the cusp of making a big splash with my blog… but am lacking in a few key areas. From content insight to photography and lighting, this little lady is in need of some pointers from the experts! SO excited about this giveaway! Winning would send me over the moon!!

  • 618. kelsey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    whoa. this is so amazing. thanks for hosting! i’m constantly improving my skills, so i’d love to win and come to blogshop! (and hopefully you come to a midwest city soon!)

  • 619. Jennifer  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    Oh my goodness! Winning this giveaway would be a dream. I’m continually trying to improve my blog and move toward my dream job :) I would love to come to blogshop!

  • 620. Erin D.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    This is so fabulous! Thank you for providing someone with all these great resources (and pretty things). I’d love to come to blogshop because though I’m a very avid (read: compulsive) blog reader, I started my own a few months and have SO much to learn! I’m a really diy type of person: I love to teach myself new skills and constantly improve upon what I know…this would be such a great way to do that. Hope to hear from you soon!!

  • 621. Trish Kehaulani  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:50 pm

    My blog and meager Photoshop skills are in some serious need of a BlogShop kick in the b*tt! AND it would be pretty awesome to meet Bri & Angela in-person! All the other stuff in the giveaway is just fluff… totally rad, would-make-everyone-else-mad-jealous, amazing fluff!

  • 622. kelly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    holy mother load. all of this is fantastic but what i really want is the opportunity to come to blogshop and be a part of something inspiring! i see it as a movement in creative exploration and i want to immerse myself in it! i have a blog and i have a lot to learn. this would be the ultimate prize for me! xoxo

  • 623. Courtnee  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    Holy crap what an awesome contest! I would love to attend blogshop! I have a small blog and just started my own business. Everything you guys teach would be a tremendous asset for my business. Plus the giveaway is two days before my birthday! Best birthday gift ever!

  • 624. Jessica Zigenis  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    Wowzers! What a treasure. I want to attend blogshop because I recently decided to step out of my comfort zone and start my own event business (a big thanks to you for being part of my inspiration to take the plunge!), and I want to learn how to master photoshop so I can give my business a killer website and media kit. xoxo

  • 625. Heather JL  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    My best friends and I are just starting up a blog and we’d love to do it right. Joy’s book is a must, with or without the Giveaway, but I’d be thrilled to get to be apart of Blogshop and get the tools to share with my team. I could never afford something like this, so thanks for the amazing opportunity!

  • 626. Jinnie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    This is amazing! :) I’d love to go to blogshop to learn photoshop – I do my ‘art’ on Paint/Word using screenshots. It’ll do much more in my career as I’m trying to explore graphic/web design. Winning the pkg would be so great with blogshop and Adobe CS!

  • 627. Kayla Campbell  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    The opportunity to spend time with other creative people is the most inspiring and motivating thing! It would be amazing to learn from the people I admire and get organized when it comes to growing my blog.

  • 628. Angela  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:51 pm

    I’ve been wanting to take the SF Blogshop class for SO long but it’s always sold out before I get a chance to enroll (for good reason)! I would love to improve my novice Photoshop skills so I can be more independent at work and play on the social web.

  • 629. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    I tweeted as well (@awildtonic)! :)

  • 630. Louise  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    My husband and I just started the process to adopt a little one from the Democratic Republic of Congo. We want to start a blog to keep our family and friends updated and also to bring to light the horrible situation for women and children in the DRC. Also being around all of the creative people at blogshop would be incredible!

  • 631. amy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    Wowzers! What a great giveaway! I’m building my freelance business and would love some new goodies to help me out!

  • 632. Miss Foodie Fash  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    I need to attend Blogshop because my blog is absolutely dreadful. I have great content but I need to learn how to spruce up my page in order to make it look more professional & inviting.

  • 633. Meredith  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    I would absolutely love to win a spot to blogshop. I live in London but was unable to attend the class when you came to London because I was doing my master’s degree at the time and didn’t have a penny to my name outside of my fees! Now that I’m about to submit my thesis, I’m thinking about the next step – including starting a blog with my two best friends in London (www.tricolo.co.uk, coming soon!) and potentially our own start-up in due time… blogshop would be the perfect launchpad!

  • 634. Hannahbelle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    Oh, this would be such a dream package for me. After several years of writing my blog, I just feel like every post is lackluster, the layout doesn’t have cohesiveness, and with the direction of my life changing at every turn, I can’t figure out how to keep up the feeling of the blog with what I want it to reflect! I am definitely crossing my fingers to win this unbelievable prize!

  • 635. Kory Woodard  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    This is the craziest giveaway ever! I would love to win this giveaway because I’ve always dreamed of having my own blog and being a freelance designer. I finally had the guts to start one earlier this year, but I don’t know much about making my blog look its absolute best. I think winning and attending blogshop would help me immensely, and Joy Cho’s Blog Inc will help give me advice with other aspects of blogging. These combined with the Photoshop would help me take a huge step forward my dream job! Those other items would be amazing too! I hope to hear from you soon! :)

    I want to come to blogshop because I am starting a blog soon. I also want to go because I really want to see you. You’ve been such an inspiration to a lot of us and it would be a real honour :)

  • 637. abby  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    i am caught in a cavernous blog styling RUT! i want to know how create an experience that is bouncy, lively, fresh and oh-so-girly pretty. and, maybe this doesn’t count, but every time i see a blogshop video, i think “rad information + color explosion + blog nerds = my (almost) new best friends!” am i the only one who thinks that? please tell me i’m not alone ;)

  • 638. Tiffany Munnerlyn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    Wow, this is an awesome giveaway. I’d love to win. I have been blogging for about 2 years and I would love the opportunity to explore more about it and reach another level. Photoshop would make my day.

    Peace, Love and Chocolate,
    Tiffany

  • 639. Paige  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    I am just getting off the ground with my blog and would love to take the class to spruce up my skills and meet and connect with other bloggers! Fantastic giveaway!

  • 640. Frances  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    I still need tons of help with my blog! I’m sure that the class would help with inspiration.

  • 641. kate  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    I’m currently in the process of sprucing up my blog (birdisadinosaur.typepad.com) and a blog shop class along with all this amazing gear would be a dream come true–! hoping to make blogging and graphic design my full time career someday!

  • 642. Martha C.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    I’m a graphic designer–a pretty new one–and coming to blog shop would be really helpful for me not only for my OWN blog, but would also help me learn some best practices to pass on to future clients! The gear would be invaluable to me… since I’m just starting out, I don’t have much extra cash for things like a Wacom! Not to mention I have kind of a design crush on Bri Emery *insert bashful emoticon here*

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 643. holly foxen wells  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    OMG! This is the best giveaway… possible EVER in the history of giveaways! I just went through several of the Blogshop city tour stop videos yesterday and was wishing and a-hoping that sometime soon there would be one in San Diego. I would love to travel to one but the price of the class + travel just wasn’t working out with my bank account (my bank account is prefers cheap dates). But if the class was covered, I would SO be in!!!! I have limited photoshop skills and a blog that I really want to take far! I am in lurve with this blog and all that is featured in it and would love how to translate your skills and expertise into my own bloggie, glamourmash.com. I would be beyond thrilled to win and all the other goodies… Woof! What a pile of awesomeness! Lots of love from sunny San Diego! Tweeting now too for extra love and entry.

  • 644. Tiffany Munnerlyn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:56 pm

    Oh yeah I tweeted @redbonegirl97.

  • 645. sara kristen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    wow, Bri, this is truly an amazing giveaway!! I am a relatively new blogger and entirely self taught, with so many on-going projects and loves all at once, and never enough time to focus on any one of them. but as an art historian, maker, and collector, almost everything I do in both my personal and professional lives involves visual material in some way. I would absolutely love to attend a blogshop not only to learn contemporary visual design skills in a supportive environment to help spruce up my blog and independent business, but to immerse myself in a wonderfully creative and inspiring community.

    and all those extra goods included in the giveaway? oh my, such a lovely collection…

    thank you so much of doing what you do!

    xo

  • 646. Jasmine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    Oh wow! This is incredible!! I would love to come to blogshop for two reasons. First of all, I always love learning new things. I’d be a professional student if I could. And secondly, I’m going through some major life changes (having a baby this fall!) and want to do an overhaul on my blog to have kind of a fresh start. I figure I might as well throw in some more newness with all the other newness coming my way right now! My email address is jasmine.lael @ gmail

  • 647. Carolyn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    holy giveaway, batman! i would LOVE to attend blogshop so that i can hone my skills and get the kick-in-the-pants-motivation needed to bust out of corporate america and become my own boss. just thinking about the possibility of getting to learn from bri and angela makes me giddy! i’m most inspired to enter the contest by the prospect of spending an entire weekend with like-minded people! in other news, the rest of the giveaway is mind-blowing and i wouldn’t mind acquiring some of that swag too.

  • 648. Patricia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    This give away is amazing, thank you for giving us a chance to win all this stuff. I want to go to blogshop to help me grow as a blogger and find my place in the blogging world. With so many blogs already in existence, it is easy to get lost. Winning a chance to attend blogshop would be a dream come true! Not only would it help find my way/voice/style, it would definitely help me spruce up my little space on the internet. xoxo Patricia

  • 649. Amber B  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    this has to be the best giveaway EVER! Blogshop has been on my list of things to do for over a year now but I’ve not been able to afford it yet. Why do I want to go to Blogshop? Because it’s the best place to learn everything about sprucing up my blog whilst working with and learning from the two most talented people out there! To win would be awesome. A chance to finally meet the face behind one of my favorite blogs!! WAHOO!!

  • 650. Megan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    I am so depressed knowing my chances of winning this unbelievable giveaway are slim to none! Here’s to hoping though! My blog is less than a year old, and it needs a lot of refining. Blog shop would be the best giveaway win of all time!

  • 651. Katy Mashburn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    I have toyed with the idea of starting a blog and would love the chance to learn what I can. Awesome giveaway!

  • 652. kaitlyn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    Wow, this giveaway is perfect!! I don’t have a blog yet but i’m thinking that Blogshop would teach me the skills that I need to do something great!

  • 653. Monique  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    WOW, what an awesome giveaway! I would LOVE to attend Blogshop because my site is in serious need of a revamp! I’ve dabbled with Photoshop and online tutorials, but feel a class like this would take my skills to the next level. I’m also planning to invest a lot more time and effort into my personal blog in the near future, and I need to get better with creative layouts and font choices. Plus, everything you design is like, the prettiest stuff ever!

  • 654. Kristen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    OMG!! What I would give to win this giveaway! The ticket to Blogshop alone is such an amazing opportunity- being able to meet all of the great attendees and presenters coupled with the fantastic content! But then, adding in all of the “little” goodies as well- Photoshop?!? Blog Inc.!?? A Wacom Tablet?!? Eeep!!
    While I’ve been blogging for a few years now, it wasn’t until recently that I completely understood what blogging can be and where I want to go with it. I would beyond relish this opportunity!! Thank you, Bri! You NEVER disappoint!!

  • 655. Eveline  |  August 21st, 2012 at 12:59 pm

    I am thinking about starting a blog but i am always hesitating and putting it off. Blogshop would give me the extra push i need to start an amazing blog and share all my creative ideas with the worldwibe web!
    PS: what a give-away! amazing!

  • 656. Drew  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    I’m launching my blog in a few days & need all the help I can get! I constantly check Blogshop for their city openings and they are always sold out :( Would absolutely love this opportunity (plus the free goodies)! Email: catfish.caviar@gmail.com

  • 657. Haley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    I would love to come to blogshop! I am a young graphic designer who is starting a design and general life prettiness blog with two former coworkers (who are also designers). We are in the process of conceptualizing and designing so we really have lots to learn. We are all new to blogging but super excited to get the ball rolling and achieve world domination!

  • 658. Allise  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    Love this giveaway so much! I would love to attend. As a new stay at home mama, I miss being able to take time to be creative. This mama just needs some time to be creative and inspired by other creative people!

  • 659. Heather  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    I want to start a blog about my newfound love of camping, and this would be the perfect thing to get me started!

  • 660. Ellie Augustin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    This giveaway would beyond amazing and wonderful I am finally jumping and going after my dream as creating my blog in a source of what I have been learning in pertaining to photography and editing. This would be the ultimate experience and huge helping growing step.

  • 661. Sara  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    I want to go to blogshop because I’ll finally be in a city it’s being hosted in (L.A.!!! from Halifax, Nova Scotia… big change!) studying Graphic Design at FIDM, and I would really, really like to meet Bri, since I kinda talked about how she’s the reason I applied to FIDM in the first place in my admissions essay, and also to learn from her, because I really love her design style and really don’t know my own yet. I just want to learn everything I can in the one year I get a chance to, and going to blogshop would just add even more to the (hopefully) amazing experience I’m about to set out on!

  • 662. Erika  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:01 pm

    seriously?! this is such a fantastic giveaway! i’d attend blogshop video to help add a little more pizzazz to my blog… it would definitely bring it the next level! woot!

  • 663. Mandy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:01 pm

    I’m almost in tears over how amazing this would be to win! I’ve been yearning to go to blogshop ever since its conception and have been saving to get PS so I could sign up for it (in another state, no AZ love yet ;)! My husband and I are in the process of starting up a photo booth company right now and though I LOVE blogging, and have my own, personal blog, I really want to create something special and professional for the business and don’t quite have the skills for that yet. Thank you for this beautiful opportunity!

  • 664. Lucy Remitz  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:01 pm

    My sister and I have been writing a blog for over a year now.. I would love to have the opportunity to go to BlogShop! We absolutely love your blog, photography and writing, and I would be thrilled to learn.

    Plus, how fantastic would it be to have a signed copy of Joy’s book?

  • 665. Miss Foodie Fash  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    I would love to attend because I need all the additional info, knowledge, etc. I can regarding blog design. I have great content but my blog design is terrible.

  • 666. kelly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    would be in heaven if i won this! i’m in the final stages of design school and am looking to start a blog but just need that extra kick. love your blog lady!

  • 667. lindsay  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    Trying to learn Photoshop CS6 on my own to pump up my journalism resume and bedazzle my blogs is just not working out as well as I was hoping for. A chance at winning this contest would open doors, windows, gates–basically anything with hinges on it! It’s time to make that final push into blog-awesomness, but with tight purse strings and big school debt looming over my head these items are just not financially attainable at the moment. Help me prance around the city with kick-butt style and gain a little more knowledge into the graphic design world to wow any head-hunter.

  • 668. Sam  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    oo la la! attend a blogshop?! Yes please! This would so take my blog to the next level! eee! I hope I win!

  • 669. Kendra Purnell  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:03 pm

    Blogshop would give me the inspiration and know-how to help make my blog awesome. I can wrap my head around print design, but I am digitally deprived. My blog reflects that.

    I must be both creative and brave.

  • 670. Seren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    This IS the mama of all giveaways! I’m friends with a group of incredibly talented ladies, and we always talk about how we need to start a blog to capture the amazingness… Sooo this would be an awesome kick start!

  • 671. Anna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:04 pm

    What an amazing giveaway!! I honestly can’t believe all of these goodies are included AND a free blogshop spot. So much fun! I’d love to learn the ins and outs of photoshop to improve my blog and just my pictures in general. What better way to learn than from Bri Emery? Hope I can be the lucky winner!

  • 672. claudia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    Even though I am signed up for the Video Blogshop class in NYC, I think it would be inspirational to attend the regular Blogshop class. My blog started as a place for accountability as I worked toward my goal of exhibiting at NSS. But since then it has been in some serious need of inspiration and sprucing up. Plus, let’s be honest, this giveaway is supa!

  • 673. Kat Williams  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    Hi Bri! Wow this is amazing! I would oove he opportunity to attend Blogshop! Design Lovefest and your columns with Katie on being successful as creative, freelance professionals have been sources of inspiration for me. I run 3 blogs: one related to my photography business and a set of sister blogs that mirror my interests in sustainable fashion and vegan home cooked food. Staying current and consistent are the things I worry most about as a blogger and creative professional; to be able to discuss these things and connect with other bloggers in a par none learning environment would rock my socks! :)
    Tweet is attached to my perennialcloset handle :)

  • 674. christina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    oh my goodness! I was so sad when I missed out the last time blogshop was in Atlanta. I have been trying to get a blog started for the last 3 years. I think my inexperience using photoshop (all self taught) really slows me down. I also think it can help with my business website design as well. Plus a signed copy of Joy’s new book! Yippee!!!

  • 675. Kerry Grolle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    This is amazing. Just had to pick my jaw up off the floor. I’d love to win the chance to go to BlogShop alone, but with all these goodies this is amazingly generous and irresistible. I’m hoping to spice up my blog life enough to add character to my small business, and go full-time freelance. It’s the dream of my husband and I that I be able to work from home.

  • 676. Lillian Alves  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    This is an amazing giveaway!

    I’m currently taking some Graphic Design courses and plan on starting my own blog soon. I would love to win the opportunity to attend Blogshop. I was hoping to attend NYC in September but didn’t have the funds. Between Blogshop, Blog Inc, and Photoshop I will have a great foundation to start my blog.

    I have Joy’s Creative Inc book and love it! I can’t wait for Blog Inc to come out.

    Whoever wins this fabulous giveaway will be very lucky!

  • 677. mckenna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    Such a great giveaway! I’ve been an avid blog follower for years, but haven’t started my own due to insecurity and lack of knowledge. Blogshop would be fantastic to go to! Excited for this giveaway. :D
    Tweeted as well.
    Meow!

  • 678. megan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    Pardon my French, but this is INCROYABLE, bri. I have a personal inspiration blog that I started a little over a year ago and would love to learn all the fancy tricks to Photoshop (seeing has how I’ve failed to learn Illustrator on my own). Blogshop is pure dream for me and I’d love to go to the Video class later, too! I’m pretty outdated with CS3, and am sure CS6 has so many new, fun tricks! Thanks for sharing your life with us through all your inspired posts.

  • 679. Lisa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    I dream of blogshop! I have a blog about art, photography, and design that is just too plain-jane right now…embarrassing. I would love to gain some more Photoshop skills at blogshop to spruce up the blog and bring it to its full potential. What an amazing giveaway!

  • 680. anne howard murphy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:07 pm

    ummm, this is incredible! the motherload of awesome (and color coordinated) prizes! i would love to start blogging again…it’s taken a major backseat to an intense job and i feel like i need a photoshop refresh/revamp before i jump back in! blogshop would be the perfect and most magical way to hit the ground running!

  • 681. Kat  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:08 pm

    I would really love to learn how to make my blog better. I regularly follow designlovefest, and I feel like the inspiration and training I would receive at blogshop would take my work to the next level :)

  • 684. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    This is such an amazing giveaway. I’ve really been hoping that you would do a blogshop in my area and was really excited when you announced Atlanta. But unfortunately, I don’t have the funds right now to go. I started my blog about six months ago and I really want to work to make it something special. Fingers crossed!!!!!

  • 685. Helen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    It would be like winning the lottery to have any of these things. I would love to come to a Blogshop — any chance to better my skills and get a little insight on my blog is welcome. The only thing holding me back is the price tag, actually! Same thing with PS. I use it at work, so I would love to retire my PSE at home.

    I am on a quest to start this blog. I call my favorites my “yum yums”. designlovefest is one of my favorite blogs to read, and I would love the opportunity to learn from the best! Pass on your yum yums to me, so I can show off my yum yums to the world!!!

    I mean, we can’t disappoint my people :)

  • 710. Tasha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:14 pm

  • 714. Rachel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    I would LOVE to come to blogshop to learn the ways of photoshop. I recently took a job doing nothing creative and it is killing me! I really want to learn photoshop so I can learn to create in a new way and see how it can change my career path. It will save me from going into the deep dark non-creative hole! I need a big kick of inspiration and knowledge aka. Blogshop to start something fresh and new!

  • 715. Kristie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    I have just starting a personal blog, and am ready to get my professional design blog going and would LOVE the opportunity to attend Blogshop and really be able to dig full speed into my new venture! Plus the goodies would be the icing on top! :)

  • 716. Dani Eggman  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    I have a little family blog for me to remember all the things my kids say and do as they are growing up. It would be really great to actually know what I’m doing! I’m kind of just winging it at the moment :). My family is my life, my heart and my passion and I would love to know how to make my blog reflect that! Plus, everything you do is pretty fab so let’s be friends! :)

  • 717. carine u  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    Hi Bri! I would love to win this giveaway because I am currently on the job hunt and I think these would be awesome skills to gain for any future job especially in media (which is my industry of choice) ! I am a lover of all things creative and have never been able to afford this type of class! :)

  • 718. menucha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:17 pm

    I would love to come. my blog was a big fail and i was wondering how to actually use it to increase income…

  • 719. Brittany LeSueur  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:17 pm

    I would love to win this giveaway!! This year I tarted to get serious about blogging, and i have fallen in love with it!! It started out as a way for me to express my style and document my family adventures, but I quickly started to develop a love for the design aspect. I purchased photoshop elements and have been trying to learn as much as I can not only for the aesthetic of my blog, but also for my up and coming photography business. I have so much to learn!!! i would love to go to design fest to become a better blogger, and increase my knowledge of design! Heck, I must have re-designed my blog at least 8 time this year because I haven’t quite gotten satisfied. On top of that I would love to meet and learn from some of my favorite bloggers!!

  • 720. julia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:17 pm

  • 722. Robyn Wooderson  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    I want to go to Blogshop because the workshop offers hope. Hope that bloggers all around will be able to put together their unique ideas and creative efforts in a seamless design with less frustration and discontent that we could not produce the result we wanted in our mind simply because we need more practice with the software or ways to do things. I want to go to Blogshop because I admire the work that Bri Emery and Angela Kohler produce on a daily basis. Their dedication to their work is such a aspiration for me. I want to produce notable content everyday. I want to reach thousands of readers. I want the opportunity. Thank you for the opportunity with this giveaway, it is such a generous and honorable thought of hope! Thank you for all you do for us aspiring creatives.

  • 723. Gaby  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:19 pm

    I had the pleasure of interning in NYC last March and loved the experience. I would take the goodies and send my BFF who just moved to Atlanta and wants to start a blog. She is lonely and I know this would make her year!

    xxoo

  • 724. lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    shoot a monkey – that’s what my grandmother in law says to keep herself from cursing. this is amazing. i want to go to blogshop because i want to be a better designer, serve my clients better, serve my community better ( i work for a non-profit) and just all around meet some awesome people. thanks for putting this together!

  • 725. meghan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    I would love to spruce up my personal blog, but my work is also shifting sharply towards web based media and this would give me a great edge. Best of luck to everyone!

  • 726. Stephanie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    Oh, Bri.. you’re killing me!! This is the giveaway of a lifetime! I’d love to go to blogshop to learn some real life skills (I’m sure you’ll teach us so much more about life and how to live successfully/colourfully!) and to give some pizazz to my blog!

  • 727. Aleta  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Are you kidding me?! Why DON’T I want to come to blogshop?! The reasons I’m daydreaming about blogshop are endless, but I’ll summarize by saying that I could really use the inspiration from all you amazing artists for my personal blog as well as for my creative life in general! I’m a graphic artist and sometimes I get stuck in a rut… I know blogshop would get me moving again! :o))

  • 728. Maria  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    Wow! Attending a Blogshop would be an amazing opportunity for me as a graphic designer and style blogger to expand my knowledge and get inspired. I want to give my blog a makeover and also cross-brand it with my portfolio page. Blogshop will definitely help me on my quest for success!
    Thank you Design Love Fest for this amazing giveaway!

  • 729. loren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:21 pm

    I don’t have a blog but am considering starting one. Going to the workshop (and having all those wonderful goodies) would certainly help me with some inspiration!

  • 730. Sharon Tan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    I would love to come to blogshop! A friend and I started a lifestyle collaboration blog and we’d love to take it to the next level. Attending would be a blast!

  • 731. Kerri  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    I have been looking to start a blog for close to 5 years, but can’t seem to find a good route to choose. I am so interested in so many things, and I have so many stylistic directions I want to go in. I would love the opportunity to narrow them down under your guidance, and gain some assurance and confidence to start my blog with a bang. I would so love to meet you two and take your class!

  • 732. Andrea  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    Wow! What a prize package! Beautiful materials.

  • 733. Elizabeth  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:22 pm

    STOKED!!! I would LOVE to win this contest. I have been blogging about my life, our 2 year awesome daughter and our house for 4 years now and I am so ready to kick my blog up a notch. I have been using Adobe Photoshop Elements for 2 years but I really want to learn more about Photoshop and how to make my pictures more rad! Plus the Blogshop goodies are gnarly!! :)

  • 735. Jessica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    goodness, this is an absurdly good giveaway!!
    i’m still in the preparation phase of starting my blog, i just don’t want to launch it until i’m really satisfied with the design and going to BlogShop would be such a help and a dream come true! Thanks for the great giveaway and for all the amazing content you post!!

  • 736. Morgan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    The suspense of your biggest giveaway yet is finally revealed and it is more than I ever imagined! So much rad stuff here, I’m practically drooling. I’ve been toying with the idea of starting a blog, but I’m just not sure where to start, and I’m they kind of gal who wants to do it big, but I’m just not quite ready yet, but I do have Blog, Inc. pre-ordered! (Hoping it will give me the kick in the pants I need!), but I have a feeling Blogshop would do the same thing!

    Thanks for a great blog Bri, so much inspiration everyday, my fav posts are the Make It & Advice. Keep it up!

  • 737. Annie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    I’m an academic who is passionate about digital scholarship! I would love to win this giveaway so that I could learn how to make better use of Photoshop on my own blog and in digital projects more generally.

  • 738. Emily Reinhardt  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    i have followed your progress with blogshop since day ONE! I am dying to take this class. As a ceramic artist and a blogger its really hard to dedicate the time to teaching myself all about photoshop and blogging. I could really use some help from Bri and Angela on photos and layouts for the blog. I am so excited about this opportunity, and I can’t thank you enough!

  • 739. Erin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    I have been waiting for a Blogshop to come close enough to attend. And D.C. in October sounds perfect! I recently launched a new business and could use a bit more help with my photoshop skills before I really get into the blog side of things.

  • 740. Sophie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    WowZA!! This is so cool. I was pinching pennies to come to Blogshop when you all came to Boston, and it just wasn’t in my budget at the time. I would LOVE to attend to really take my blog to the next level and to have the opportunity to meet with so many other creatives out there.

  • 741. Amanda Handleson  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    I am currently working in a job that is quite uninspiring, so I have been chipping away at a beginning a career change (read: I just have to stick it out a bit longer). Learning photoshop is going to be essential! I have started my blog but I really want to learn the skills to personalize it and make it stand out! Ill be going to school next semester so the timing is so perfect. Winning this contest would be more than AMAZING! :) Good luck everyone!

  • 742. Tracy Osborn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    734 comments already. OH EGADS.

    I want to go because I blog from the seat of my pants, trying out anything that sticks… and I’d LOVE to get some guidance to get me and my blog on a good path!

  • 743. Brit  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    I would absolutely love the chance to attend Blogshop! Both you and Angela are very inspiring ladies and it would be awesome to spend a couple days learning from the two of you. Not to mention all the talented people I would be attending Blogshop with. It would be such a nice experience to meet with other bloggers and be in a creative and inspiring environment with them. My friends and I are starting a blog and I could really benefit from some professional insight and some new tricks!

    Can’t wait to hear the outcome of this. It will definitely be one very lucky winner!

  • 744. Aileen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    Oh wow, I would LOVE to win this! I’ve been running a wedding blog for 2 years but have been working on an interiors/lifestyle blog that I want to launch soon. Blogshop would be SOO timely and helpful. And OMG the extra goodies would be amazing. Especially the wacom tablet. I have been wanting one of those for years!!

  • 745. Iris Vank  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:25 pm

    I thought I shouldn’t enter because I live overseas and such a journey would be crazy. But hey, why not? Crazy can be so much fun!!

    I would love to attend blogshop, because I love blogging and love to develop myself. A combination of the two at the inspirational blogshop, might be life-changing for me.

    (What an amazing and super generous give-away, so great that you made it possible Bri!!)

  • 746. Sue  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    What a divine giveaway! I just went on my own (!) and my blog could certainly use some lovin’.

  • 749. Taylor  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    I feel like saying “same as above!” in response to all of these comments. An amazing giveaway, amazing class and your blog is spectacular. My blog has been around for years, initially on blogger but recently upgraded to coordinate with my design portfolio. I’m finally ready to start actively assigning a calendar of content to each week vs posting willy-nilly when time permits. But that’s the challenge – finding the time! Making time for my blog when it’s summer in Vermont isn’t happening… looking forward (not really) to winter b/c it will help me FOCUS :) Thanks for being awesome!

  • 750. Trena  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    I would love to get help for my little craft blog! Plus, any tips I learn would definitely benefit my online portfolio! (I’m a budding interior designer).

  • 751. Megan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:30 pm

  • 752. Kristin B  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    Holy guacamole! This is like Christmas and birthdays and trips to Disneyland all mixed together. I bow down to you, Santa Bri! :D
    I would lovelovelove to attend Blogshop to give my somewhat newly created blog the extra TLC it deserves, and get a little direction that I’m just not quite sure how to give it yet. :)

  • 753. Lara  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    I’m in the process of starting a new blog, i am 18 years old and i will study fashion design. Since i knew about blogshop I fell in love with the idea of going to one, so I can meet creative people and learn some of your tricks! I have all the ideas in my head but sometimes I don’t know how to make it look ”professional” I think that blogshop is wonderful, it would open doors for me in the world of blogging and design! Thank you for this opportunity, you rock!

  • 754. sohail justin akhavein  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    so, here’s the deal: my boyfriend and i are moving in together and i want to start a blog along the lines of “our gay house.” you see, i can feel it being spectacular, not to mention, one of a kind. what i need help with is the start — the push from your shop. from tutorials to diys, inspiration to what’s happening in our daily life, “our gay house” would be a place that not only glbt people could come to find lifestyle inspirations, but also open the realm of lifestyle blogs to the public. it would be a charm. i would be forever grateful. best, and thank you from the future gay house.

  • 755. Anni  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    I’ve had a blog for a year now, but I need help giving it that “oomph” factor. I think the best gift would be just to be able to go to Blogshop but CS6…get outta here! That would be awesome.

  • 758. Katie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    i have a photography business, but my blog needs more love. i have lots of ideas, but i’m having a hard time bringing them to fruition! please help!

    I HEART BLOGSHOP! I am in the process of starting two blogs. (ambitious, I know!) They are weeks away from launching thanks to an amazing designer here in CHARLESTON, SC. But I need to learn how to keep it up to par with the fabulous design. I need some BLOGSHOP lessons & inspiration. Thanks for the chance! xo

  • 760. Christina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    Well, I would like to attend Blogshop because I am a high school art/photography teacher and I believe that I could take the skills and ideas that I learn at blogshop and let it trickle down to my students. I would love to be able to share new techniques and creativity with them as well as my overall experience. I believe it is important that they see that I am still excited about learning too!

  • 761. Christine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    I’ve been wanting to join Blogshop for a while! I’d love to learn not only from Bri & Angela, but from awesome classmates who love the same things I do—writing, design and pretty blogs! <3

  • 762. Anja  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:38 pm

    WOW I would love to go to blogshop. I am seriously lacking photoshop skills, but have so many things I can think of doing on it if I only knew how!! For now, all the ideas are just bouncing around my head, or on paper, or waiting sadly on my camera…

  • 763. Lindsay-Jean  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:38 pm

  • 766. Diana  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:39 pm

  • 773. Lindsay Ware  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    I want to go to blogshop because my blog is my happy place. I am a graphic designer and I working in branding at a big company, so all of the visions I have in my head cannot always get out through my day job. Starting a blog has finally given me an outlet to try layouts and play with colors that would never fly at work. It makes me feel like I can breathe again. I want to go to blogshop to learn more about web based design and I want Bri Emery to be my teacher. She is my graphic design hero!

  • 774. Paula  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    Seriously, best giveaway ever. I’m a senior in college and have been seriously thinking about starting a blog to help get my creative juices flowing and become part of the super cool online creative community. I’m also on the job hunt now and Blogshop would be awesome for learning new skills that might help me land my dream job!

  • 775. Keri  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    So awesome. I have always wanted to attend Blogshop as my blog is essentially non existent at the moment. Plus, I get the opportunity to learn from the best!!

  • 776. Erin May  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    I would LOVE to win this giveaway, as a long-time blogger who is just starting to get serious, in many ways thanks to inspiring blogs such as DesignLoveFest. I’m ready to take this to the next level, and I know Blogshop would be such a huge boost!

  • 777. Ashley Pitman  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    Hey Bri,

    Ashley Pitman here. I have a website where I aim to color people with vibrant health and well-being using raw foods, natural healing, ayurveda, cleansing, life-enhancing relationships, yoga, meditation & community. I do this by offering tons of valuable free content on my website, http://www.vixi.com.

    But, here’s the thing…

    I’ve hit a design wall, Bri. I’m a one-woman show – doing all the writing, food photography, branding, marketing, etc on my own. While this is totally fun and fulfilling I’m seeking to up my game for the sake of the people reading my blog and wanting to take their health to the next level. Pictures and good images make everything more fun! I’ve started putting the pieces together with Photoshop (CS3), but can’t seem to get my head wrapped around anything beyond cropping, resizing and using the curve tool, whatever that does. As you can see there are some tools missing in my toolbox. I would LOVE to attend Blogshop and get more support in raising my game NOW.

    I’m ready for impactful design strategies. I’m ready for the latest version of Photoshop. I’m ready to make the changes necessary to my skill-set to get this puppy put together more beautifully.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity. Because of your site, your magic & your shine so many women are sharing their gifts and talents in a way that looks gorgeous!

    Please select me for this big time giveaway. Every ounce of your energy and time will be put to good use.

    But WAIT there’s more…

    BONUS #1: If I win I’d like to pay the generosity forward and extend something I’m good at (health coaching) for free to two people via my website. So, your giveaway would be touching 3 people instead of just one.

    BONUS #2: I’ll bring a great pair of shoes to Blogshop.

    You can reach me at ashleylpitman@gmail.com or @ashleylpitman on Twitter if I’m chosen to win.

  • 778. Michelle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    wow!

    My name’s Michelle and my blog, Recording Happiness, will be up and running very soon! I’m a graphic designer who recently moved to New York to have a whack at that age old dream of “making it”. Never been much of an ‘adventurist’ but being in a new city, makes me want to do every bit of exploring I can! My blog will reflect mostly design oriented ideas, my crazy obsession with typography, personal projects and other cool things here and there (including my 25 things to do at 25 list ;) ) I think blogshop will light that little fire that will inspire me to explore and share through a blog and meet some fabulous fellow bloggers who do the same!

    Love you design love fest!

    I’ve been trying to decide what direction to take a blog since I read so many already. This would be an amazing opportunity to finally stop saying tomorrow and actually learn what I need to and then go ahead with my vision. This is awesome!!!!

  • 786. Samantha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    Definitely the best giveaway I’ve EVER seen. I want to win because I am constantly oodling over everything you (Bri) post (especially everything about the blogshops) and would LOVE to actually be apart of it! I have had a blog for awhile now but am thinking about breaking off into the world of freelance and would love some extra tips and tricks to give me that edge that Bri has that I need to succeed as a creative.

    THANKS FOR THE CHANCE AND INSPIRATION! ✌ ✌

  • 787. Morgan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    Oh my, I would LOVE to win! I have been blogging for several years, but would love to learn how to make my blog prettier. Thank you for this fabulous giveaway!

  • 788. thu-SB  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    I’m a Yoga Instructor and LOVE the idea of creating a yoga/art/graphic design/style/life blog! I NEVER thought i would be into this new medium of blogs but I have been inspired by Bri and others to incorporate my health/science filled life with some creativity!….Blogshop would be the perfect swan dive headfirst with a cherry on top learning experience!

  • 789. Christine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    This is AMAZING! I’ve toyed with the idea of attending blogshop for a while but financially I just can’t swing it right now. I’m a self-taughter Photoshopper and would love to turn my roundabout ways into some actual skills!

  • 790. Stephanie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:52 pm

    Holy wow this is amazing! I want to spruce up my blog, which I’ve had for over 5 years now, so blogshop would be a dream come true. Thank you! (And keeping my fingers crossed…)

  • 791. Meg  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    This is the kind of GIVEAWAY that really knocks my socks off! It’s a huge motivator to polish up the blog I’ve dissed, and really be the wind beneath Trophy Brigade’s (art blog) wings!!! Blogs are places of expression and focus and sharing! Thanks for the opportunity to be a part of Blogshop and win some super cool tools to SPRUCE IT UP AND MAKE IT PRETTY! xo

  • 792. Morgan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    I tweeted the giveaway (I’m @mamalovespapa)!

  • 793. Rachelle Lynch  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    I recently put my career on pause to figure out what I really want to do with my life. I’ve spent the summer traveling around with my husband & kids in our Airstream travel trailer – I started a blog to get my creative juices flowing and share the stuff we see/find during our travels. (whileweroam.com)
    The skills I’d acquire at blogshop would allow me to design the version of my blog that I see in my head but can’t seem to get on the screen.

    P.S. This giveaway is rad.

  • 794. Laura Bear  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Wow. What a giveaway. I would love to come to blogshop to spruce things up, get inspired and really learn video in CS6!!!

    Plus, to be in a room full of other ladies and gents who are into learning.. well that sounds like the best win evah.

  • 795. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    I just love your blog and this giveaway is amazing. I happen to have a crazy tote fetish, so I must win. ;)
    But, actually I am a graphic design student. But, my love of art and technology goes beyond that. I want to start a blog… but have been beating around the bush lately… just trying to figure out what I want to do with it. The blogshop would be the most amazing opportunity. Plus, the iPhone case, the laptop bag, the scarf… Drool. Drool. Drool.

  • 796. Rachel  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Shut the front door – this is the most amazing giveaway ever! I’m crossing my fingers – I seriously need that Photoshop as mine needs to be upgraded!

  • 797. melissa lynn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:55 pm

  • 799. Stacy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! This giveaway is absolutely incredible. Let me gather my thoughts (I’m stunned)…
    I have been fortunate enough to attend a Blogshop class in the past (SF 2011), when I was just starting my blog. The skills I learned were absolutely essential, but I’m ready to take it to the next level. I understand the basics, but grasping the real neat tricks is what is going to set my blog apart. I am going to DIE waiting the next week.

  • 800. Denise Lopez  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    I would love to win this giveaway because it would immensely help me start my career! As a current graphic design & photography student it is hard to afford a Blogshop class that I have been dying to take in order to build an impressive blog to show my photography and creativity. It would also be greatly beneficial to win CS6 another amazing tool that is difficult to afford as working art student. My brother graduated from FIDM in the summer and has always encouraged me to pursuit my creative endeavors, I only hope to continue that by winning this amazing giveaway.

  • 801. Stacy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Whoa! Talk about an Ah-may-ZING giveaway! I have been blogging for a few years and just launched a business http://www.hellocupcakepr.com I would love this opportunity to improve my skills and get some rad gear. My favorite item is the Blog Inc. book. Having red Creative Inc. and Craft Inc. I just can’t wait to get my hands on that book!

  • 802. Kate  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Oh my goodness, I want to be that lucky human! I started my blog as a journal and it’s become a real love of mine 18 months on. I’ve just graduated from a very intense year at Parsons and would love to take it to the next level…being a poor student without a job is tough, making it a success story to share would be amazing!

  • 803. Elizabeth  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    What a wonderful opportunity! You guys are awesome. I would love to go to Blogshop and am so excited to see that Atlanta is an option, but definitely cannot afford it right now as a college student. I’ve recently really started to get my blog off the ground over these past few months because I feel it is important for me to have a little spot to practice for my hopeful future in media (studying journalism + art history), so this would be such a great thing for me! I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

  • 804. Selena Wong  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    I work as a freelance illustrator and fine artist. Since I mainly work traditionally with gouache on paper, I get especially overwhelmed every time I need to create a new post on my blog. Something about the digital media just intimidates me. I even work with the simplest template on blogspot, and I actually feel proud if I manage to make a new post each month. But I don’t want to settle for such little updates! Bri, you are so inspirational and you must have so positively driven many people all across the world to create well-designed and beautiful wbsites. It would be a dream to meet you ladies, attend blogshop, and absorb all that I can from you and Angela. Perhaps then all my fears would diminish! Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!

  • 805. Olivia  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    I’m looking for the spark that will help me kick start my creativity. I keep a Tumblr, but want something that’s wholly my own. A Blogshop class is just what I need!

  • 806. jennifer  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    I just want to see all your yellow accessories. ;)))
    PLUS I’m a big fan and would love to make my Butter blog even fresher!

  • 807. Jamie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    wow! what a giveaway – i’ve been longing to go to blogshop! i’ve blogged in the past, but without your incredible design and photoshop skills. i miss that outlet and after a lot of brainstorming, have come up with a blog concept that i really want to develop. i’ve been working on it, but would really like to nail the visual elements.

  • 808. Shirley J  |  August 21st, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    I would love to win and be apart of blogshop because we can NEVER learn too much!!! Im a graphic designer and I share a blog with my best friends and I love it! ( http://tresladies85.blogspot.com/ ) . But recently I’ve been thinking about going freelance full time in the near future and creating my own blogI I feel like this class will boost my creative knowledge to the next level and give me that added motivation I need!! whoop whoop!! Also I absolutely love everything you guys have done with BLOGSHOP and its been great seeing it grow!!
    This would be a fantastic experience ;)

    AWESOME GIVEAWAY!!!

    Wow. What a generous giveaway! The chance to attend a blogshop class alone is fabulous, but then throw all these other amazing items in the pot and I would be one happy girl! I have had my blog for about six years now and would really love to see it grow at this point. I would love to learn some of the latest techniques in the game and make my blog shine!

    ~Syd

  • 810. Theresa Delano  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    Blogshop Video Chicago was outstanding and I need more training!! The class was so informative and now I really need to tackle the basics of blog layout. Unfortunately the blogshop class in Chicago was sold out already when I signed up for Blogshop Video Chicago.
    I have CS6 but am hoping to hire someone for my team. That will be my gift to them, and you helping someone kick off their business on the right foot! I am in the process of growing into a bigger marketing team that will be able to help many more people obtain online presence. I am obsessed with my Wacom tablet, but again, this will help tremendously when hiring my mini-me!
    As always, it is essential to be adding pops of color in everything I do. I am a momma. I need your help to keep me up to date in the Fashion world. As you said in your post the other day, staples are essential in a wardrobe. These are just the items I need. :)
    Did I mention staying up to date? I finally just got an iPhone and have been shooting tons and tons with the tips Angela gave us. That handy dandy white board works amazing.

  • 811. Abbie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    My heart just skipped a beat! What a funnnn giveaway. I have had a blog for a few years, and always get dicouraged because I don’t quite have the computer skills/software. I would LOOOOVE to attend Blogshop so I can continue to give my blog the attenetion, and maybe be able to stay home with my daughter and work from home.

  • 812. Sara  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    What an awesome giveaway! I’ve been to Blogshop & I’d love to send one of my lady friends!

  • 813. vanessa hernandez  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    this is PHENOMENAL! i was just talking to a few colleagues about how i need to take my business to the next level with a blog – this is such a sign that it can totally happen. i loved reading about your archived posts about the transition into freelance and since i’m boarding the same boat, this would just be a dream.

  • 814. Bekah  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:03 pm

    I’ve been lusting after a spot at Blogshop for months so I couldn’t be more excited about this giveaway! I’m in the early stages of starting a new blog with an awesome team and the Blogshop experience would be a fantastic way to wrap up all that preparation. More than anything, I’d love the opportunity to spend the day with like-minded folks, digging in and making things happen.

  • 815. Vanessa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:03 pm

    Wow- someone is going to be very lucky to win this giveaway! What an opportunity. I’ve been needing some creative instruction on blogging….something physical to actually get me working and started. This would be such a fantastic way to move forward! Crossing my fingers! A recent transplant to LA, Bri, I’ve loved your local posts. Your style and design colors are so inspirational!

  • 816. Carolina Calzacorta  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:04 pm

    This is extremely exciting! I have been wanting to attend Blogshop for ages! I´m from Venezuela, now living in Mexico, and I just need an excuse to jump on a plain to one of your incredible locations and attend the class, and this would be the PERFECT excuse. I just want to live the experience, get some new skills from it and give my blog some LOVE.

  • 817. Jenny  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    I am interested in connecting interesting people through interesting events around LA. We have a list serve that has brought over 30 people together for bring your own marker paint by number event and a cardboard box party for building and pretending at a theater Downtown. I’d love to create a jazzy blog to get more people involved. This sounds like quite the bundle and would kill to take this class. Thanks for your daily doses of inspiration!

  • 818. Melissa C  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:06 pm

  • 820. Cathie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:08 pm

    “If I can, anyone can” is still ringing in my ears from one of the Gold Medalists from London 2012. I have been procrastinating on the idea for a while of taking the plunge into the blog and freelance world and this was the final kick I needed, the wheels are in motion! BLOGSHOP is a truly fantastic opportunity which inspires and forges the way forward for bloggers. I am a graphic designer and you may think I wouldnt need to go, but that doesn’t mean I dont want to go! The inspiration is contagious even just looking at the photos. Thank you.x

  • 821. Christine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    What a fabulous giveaway! Blogshop just seems like such an incredible time to get together with other bloggers and learn! I recently launched my business, and would love to learn how to better integrate blogging with my design background. And there is just something about being in community with other creatives/bloggers that boosts the Blogshop experience!

  • 822. Laura  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:09 pm

    This is AMAZING. Let’s see. I want to be the luckiest person ever for all the reasons… I want to learn new techniques! Become a better designer! Have more exposure to learn how to do what you and Angela do! Immerse myself in blogging, so I can really start one and stick to it! Improve, learn, improve, and get a job!

    Also- I’m so ridiculous, I want the iphone case the most.

  • 823. Caroline  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    You ROCK! You are such a PLUS in this world! I can’t thank you more for all the inspiration and aspiration you are bringing into my life as I am just discovering a new life full of creativity! After 8 years in advertising, I just started my own little jewellery brand on etsy, a FB page, twitter account and revamped my blog about life, brand, etc… Attending your blogshop has been one of the top hits on my vision board! Nothing better to help me jump start this new life. And thanks for the generosity of all the other prizes. AMAZING.

  • 824. Sara Nicole  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:10 pm

    I am a recent art grad and have wanted to attend Blogshop ever since it began but couldn’t afford it. I am also in the process of starting my own business and have a blog that needs some definite sprucing up and this opportunity would definitely help. Also: those other goodies are awesome!

  • 825. Megan Gibson  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    Oh wow, this is so amazing. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to win this. I would want to win because I could really use the new skills to make my blog something that people actually look forward to seeing everyday. I started a blog about a year ago but I never could make it what I wanted it to be. I would love, LOVE to use photoshop. And, lucky for me, Atlanta was added to the list of upcoming cities! Thanks for giving someone out there the chance to win this.

  • 828. EM. Halliburton  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    Wonderful idea. I’ve been teaching myself Photoshop/Illustrator skills for the last couple of years and feel pretty in the minority of people in Memphis interested in the blog community that I want to be a part of…

    Blogshop is such an inspiration and connecting with other similar-minded people while learning some real design tips would be a dream come true!

    Way to reach out to those who can’t put together the cash for Blogshop right now. You guys are doing a great job – keep it up!

I feel like this is the stepping stone I need to get it done and not to mention a very, very amazing opportunity. If I have to travel, I’m there. If I have to sit in front of my computer for hours trying to figure out the tablet, then so be it. I’m ready! :)

  • 830. Ashley Nathalie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    I would LOOOVE to attend Blogshop because, as a recent college grad I have absolutely no idea what I want to be when I grow up and a blog seems to be one of the best ways to help me channel my ideas, energy and inspirations. However, I don’t really know much about blogging and my photoshop knowledge is quite minimal : ( Blogshop would help me gain the skills to find myself outside of school and a 9-5!

  • 831. Kristie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    What an amazing giveaway! I’d love to go to blogshop to revitalize my blog to be able to expand more and brand myself!

    I am DYING to get into a blogshop class and would love to actually win one! I have a blog with my dear friend Rebecca and I would love to learn how to make it better. Being an avid designlovefest reader, i know bri knows the right stuff to teach! One time at Joy’s Kate Spade event, I was too embarrassed to go up to Bri and tell her how obsessed I was with her work. If I won this contest, I would definitely confess my love for everything DESIGNLOVEFEST!

  • 833. Christina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    Bri! You are the cutest! This giveaway looks positively dreamy! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the opportunity to grow my photoshop skills! I’m a graphic artist by profession, but because I use Illustrator daily, my photoshop skills are seriously LACKING. I want to start a website/blog of my own! ;) Thanks for the daily inspiration!

  • 835. Jessica Wray  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    First off can I just say THIS GIVEAWAY IS AMAZINGLY OUT OF THIS WORRRRLLLLLLLDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!! Alright, so, My friend and I started a blog our freshmen year of college. It was a fun project we could both work on together while we were apart in different states. As the years went by, school started consuming more and more of our lives. She was studying Architecture and I was in Chemical Engineering. Both of these majors did not allow us to have any free time. We slowly drifted apart from the blog and now it’s just frozen in time, waiting for us to one day pick it back up :( . Now that I am almost done with school, I would love the opportunity to attend Blogshop to learn all of the super skills yal have to offer us so that I can revive our long lost blog.

  • 838. Krishann  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    I was elated when I had the opportunity to take blogshop.  One of the keys to retaining everything learned was practice practice practice.  I started practicing and using the skills I learned in class and was excited as my head was swimming with ideas and I was beginning to do things I dreamt of doing.   Then a few weeks later I found out I was pregnant and experienced severe morning sickness causing the blog and my practicing to be put on hold.  Sadly I could definitely use a refresher but there’s no way we could afford for me to take that class again.  

    p.s. I tweeted :) thanks for offering such an amazing giveaway!

  • 839. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    I am currently working a dead-end job (sad, but true) and am about to make my break into the freelance blogging world after years of spending late nights working side blog jobs (kinda sounds like odd jobs, doesn’t it?). I could really use the professional boost that this class would offer my site so attending Blogshop would be an fantastic opportunity for me!

    Throw me a horseshoe, would ya? :)

  • 840. Angie T.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Everything I know about photo editing, creating projects, etc., I have taught myself. I know there is a vast amount of knowledge out there I could use to perfect the basic skills I already know. I love the idea of learning the shortcuts! I would LOVE to get my little hands on the tutorial blogshop book!

  • 843. Allie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    My blog needs help- like a little creativity CPR…and I can’t think of a better way to learn than at blogshop especially from Bri! You guys constantly give me swoonworthy posts and I just can’t get enough.

  • 847. Madeline  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    SERENDIPITY! Just earlier today I decided to start blogging some new artwork…blogshop would turbo-charge this project. I’ve never done anything like this- gotta translate delicate, layered collage work to something on a screen. Hopefully developing a brand identity along the way :)

    My stuff’s not getting seen and I want to learn new ways to engage with people!

    Fingers crossed…

  • 848. Nicola  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:24 pm

    Hello, thanks for holding such a lovely and generous giveaway. Also, just wanted to compliment you on your blog – it’s fantastic – well done you on getting to where you are. I have a website and my own small business which could both benefit undisputedly from these prizes – the blogshop would be a crazy awesome excuse to fly out to the US and mingle with some likeminded creative people! I would be over the moon if I won. Thanks anyways for your time, carry on doing what you do! Best wishes. Nicola xox

  • 850. Sarah K.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    I would love to win this! I especially would love the day pass to blogshop because as a freelance writer, there is no way that I could afford it :( Having Photoshop would also be a tremendous help to grow my blog! Currently I edit all of my photos with Microsoft Paint! *keeping my fingers crossed!*

    Wow! what an AMAZING giveaway! I have been dying to go to blogshop for multiple reasons.

You two are such an inspiration and I could use your help in perking up my little corner of the web!
    Amazing, amazing, amazing

I LOVE DESIGN, and I really really wanted to attend the work shop bug couldn’t because all the spots were already taken. You are SOOOO inspiring, and I would love to do the same to other! BTW all the other prizes are radical!!!!!! xoxo

  • 855. Tamara  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    Oooh! I’ve always dreamed about starting my own blog and there’s no better place to start than a blogshop class. This is seriously the best giveaway ever – better than Christmas!

  • 856. hillary  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:26 pm

    I am just relaunching my blog an would love the extra tips and tools!! what an amazing giveaway!

  • 857. Ali T  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    WOW! I would love to win a spot! I’ve been dying to go to blogshop — I love doing creative things and this class is right up my alley.

  • 858. Emily  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    WOW! This is stupendously generous, Bri! I have been drooling at the idea of attending Blogshop since you launched, but need to save up some money to be able to attend — of course it would be hard-earned money SO well spent! I am currently working on breaking into the design field and looking to launch my own blog anew after a couple of false starts over the last few years. The timing/mission was never quite right/crystallized, but I really truly feel that I am almost there, that the ideas are bubbling up and about ready to burst out onto the scene. I need HELP, the “tools” and know-how to bring this thing to LIFE. I would no doubt benefit tremendously from the experience of attending Blogshop — ah! to be the recipient of so much knowledge! It would no doubt be a real life changer for me and the start of something amazing! AND it just so happens ALL of these accessories are just my style :-) CHEERIO ~Emily

  • 859. Jennifer  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    Great Giveaway! Blogshop sounds amazing. I’ve always wanted to learn more about Photoshop.

  • 860. katie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    I would LOVE to attend blogshop because though I have a creative 9-5 job, I have been itching to start a blog that represents “me” fully. And I could DEFINITELY use a little help with how to make a blog look cool! I hope to find a way to organize all my creative thoughts in one space and a blog would be the perfect outlet!

  • 861. Stephanie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    If any of these items were being given away just by themselves I’d jump at the chance to win them. But the chance to win ALL of these goodies at once?! That’s mind boggling! I am a big fan of designlovefest and Blogshop. I follow Bri on Instagram and find myself constantly being inspired by her snaps of bold patterns and breakfast snacks. I graduated from a graphic design program last year, and jumped straight into a job that I feel like has swallowed all of my creativity. I find myself looking to blogs, instagram, etc., to feel inspired, but it also scares me that I feel like my work is moving me further and further away from the design that I love. That’s why I signed up for Blogshop in SF in November. I think being a part of the class and brushing up on my Photoshop skills will boost my confidence and help me remember why I actually love design. I know that I’m not the only recent grad feeling the way I do, which is why I’d love to bring my best friend to Blogshop too. We are both figuring out where we belong in the design world. The opportunity to share that experience with her would be great. (And to get to the class with an awesome yellow tote and a shiny Wacom tablet would be even sweeter!) Thanks for the chance to win!

  • 862. Joanne  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:31 pm

    WOW! This is an amazing giveaway and hopefully an answer to my prayers!! I heard about blogshop months ago and I’ve always wanted to attend but due to financial reasons I was unable to. I do have my own photography blog, but my Photoshop skills are pretty limited, so this would be a such a GREAT OPPORTUNITY to give some loving to my blog and photos!! Crossing my fingers and toes :)

  • 863. Danielle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    are – you – kidding?! ok, this is incredible.. even if i’m not the lucky son of a gun, it’s incredible that you’re doing this! i have been developing my blog for a while, changed names and restarted a ton.. i finally committed to one name and a general area of focus which i’m honing.. i love graphic design, typography.. and my taste is pretty similar to blogshop’s but that’s where it begins and ends. i would love to be able to take everything to the next level and your work has really inspired me to go for it. thank you for your inspiring work, blog and career guidance.. and good luck reading all of these hopeful comments!

  • 865. Jennifer  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    i would love to spruce my blog up! and i’ve always wanted to learn how to us photoshop. thanks for the chance to win this crazy amazing giveaway!

  • 866. Danielle E  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    This is so fantastic- way to put some great opportunities together for the blogging community. Very enriching, DLF!

    I’ve recently transitioned to a contractor’s position (ie. working from home) and would love to revamp my long-dead blog. While I’ve always enjoyed writing and doing various forms of art, I’ve never found a way to cohesively place the pieces.

    I think proper initial guidance is a huge step for of blog enthusiasts transitioning to bloggers. Sometimes a little push is all someone needs to find their way! Blogshop could be it for some lucky lad/lass!
    Thanks again,
    Danielle

  • 867. anto  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    It would be absolutely fantastic if I won This Blogshop giveaway because I recently started my illustration blog and I would love to spruce up my corner on the internet. Moreover, it’s a great way to meet like-minded people who also enjoy the creative aspects of life. Creative people inspire me and my art.

  • 868. Claire  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    It would be really great to attend the Blogshop in DC. I work with a bunch of creative people but do not have nearly the talent they all have. It would be really wonderful to establish my taste of creativity and I think a blog would be the perfect place to start! Cheers to the account people in a creative world!

  • 869. Michelle P  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    i’m a graphic designer and always looking to improve my skill base. i love your blog and follow it regularly. the attention to detail you put into your site and your blogshops is truly inspiring. thank you for this awesome give away!

  • 871. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    This is INSANE! What an awesome giveaway. If I won, I’d use this as an opportunity to refresh my creativity and brush up on my Photoshop skills… looking mighty fine while doing so with that beautiful scarf and tote! Fingers are officially crossed!

  • 872. Robin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    Sorry if this is largely incoherent, this post has completely overwhelmed me! Your Blogshop entries always strike exactly the right note of inspiration, I’d love the opportunity to attend one in person. I’m on a student’s budget though, and so am mostly resigned to staring wistfully at the class dates and times. I’ve always dabbled in blogging (Tumblr, livejournal, and the like), having taught myself Photoshop from the age of, oh gosh, 12 and I don’t think I’ve ever really stopped learning. I don’t see how it’s possible to (for reference, I’m the type of person that likes to dig through old graphics on my external hard-drive and laugh at the abundance of high saturation and lighten layers). It’s hard for me to keep focus though. Most of the time I think it’s because I don’t know where to start. Just learning how to better organize and then implement my ideas would mean the world to me. Articles on the internet (specifically your advice posts, for example) about blogging and branding in particular have got the cogs in my head whirring, I honestly just think I need that extra push. Something to plant me where I need to be, and push me in the right direction :) Regardless of whether or not I’m chosen, this is a wonderful opportunity and I hope the recipient takes away something special from it!

  • 873. Lorrie Mizell  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    What a fabulous opportunity. This would be the perfect package and education to put what it’s in y mind, into play. Thanks to all involved for a chance to win!

  • 874. Madison R.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    DLF is one of the few blogs that I check everyday and I would LOVE to be able to learn from someone whose blog I admire so much! I recently started my own blog and am always interested in learning more about how to make great posts! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway!

  • 875. ashley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    This is such an awesome giveaway! I have a blog right now and am really trying to get more involved in taking pictures and creating unique eye catching layouts for it. Would LOVE to win this & get inspired by what you have to share!

  • 876. Michaela  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:38 pm

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to win a trip to blogshop. I have been trying to figure out how I can cut back and save my pennies to come to one if one comes close to me. I have a relatively new blog and am fashioning my online business but I know it could use some extra love and attention that blogshop would give me!

  • 877. communikate  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:38 pm

  • 880. Joy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    Blogshop is one of those things I would absolutely invest in, if only I had the money to do it! I’ve been searching for the “right job” for years, and I’ve finally accepted that, for me, that’s what I’ve been doing all along: freelancing. Now that I’m getting serious about my blog, I would love to have all the tools and know-how to make it gorgeous. I’ll keep my fingers and toes crossed until August 28!

  • 881. Madeline  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    GAHHHLEEE! I’m a journalism/Ad/Pr major and would love to get a blog up and rolling! Have been saving blog post ideas for over a year! Just waiting for the perfect time! I want to be an editor/publisher some day and what better way than by publishing myself!

    P.S. Was so sad hearing about the blogshop in Dallas last weekend and knowing I was just down the road from some cool stuff happenin!

  • 882. Gaby  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    Wow, what an amazing giveaway, this is insanely good! I’d love to go to Blogshop, I think you guys have found the perfect balance between an incredibly valuable lesson and a fun and unforgivable experience, brilliant!

  • 883. libby  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    my mom & i bought a business last year and we are in the process of taking it online…let the huge learning curve begin. despite two young kidlets at home, i WILL make it to blogshop one day! of course, a free registration plus all the killer goodies would make it that much more sweet. thanks for the fantastic give-a-way! :)

  • 885. Krysta  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    Holy Mostacholli! Is this a giveaway or what?! I would absolutely love, love, love to attend a Blogshop (I have been wanting to attend ever since you debuted these classes)! I have a little ol’ blog that I use as an outlet for my creativity (my day job, which I love, is more left-brain than right). I have been trying to create more original and personal content- taking more of my own photos, documenting my life- but would absolutely LOVE to elevate it to the next level with design elements in photoshop. I find you ladies to be so, so inspiring and want to learn from you! Here’s to hoping I’m your lucky big winner!

  • 886. jackie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    I would love love LOVE to win this because there hasn’t been a Blogshop in my city, or near me! (Columbus, OH) And my little blog definitely needs some work :) I would be over joyed to win this contest and learn some more about tips, tricks, and the likes of having your own blog! Esp. how to create my own niche and my own voice! I’m also on a budget and haven’t had the money to travel to attend a blog shop, let alone pay for the class {sad face}… eeek!!! Thanks for this opportunity Bri :)

  • 887. Lindsay  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    What the what? Killer giveaway.

    I graduated from college a year ago and still haven’t found a way to break into the design field. I’ve been thinking about blogshop for a while now, and just know that it’ll give me the boost I need.

  • 888. christine  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    would love to come to blogshop on the west coast (i’m in SF) or in NYC. it would be amazing to get some tips and tricks from B & the team! it would be SO helpful, SO fun, and SO worth it! though adobe cs6 couldn’t hurt either ;)

  • 889. becka robinson  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    I would LOVE to come to one of the upcoming blogshops Atlanta maybe? I’ve been blogging for a long time and I know a bit about PS and layouts but I feel stuck, like I can’t get any better on my own. I’d love to learn more and take my design up a notch. :) Thanks!!!

  • 890. Emily  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    OMG. I’ve been dreaming of taking a blogshop class but as a newbie, my funds are low! I am a new blogger/designer/artist/general adventurer just getting out there into the cyber world… and very technology-challenged! This is just what I need!

    My little life would be so blessed to win this so I can share my ideas and creations with the blogosphere… oh to dream!

  • 891. Allison  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    I’d love to create a space that truly expresses me and my freelance business. I’ve had a blog for a few years now but never really felt engaged, consistent or that it really did represent me. When I heard you were heading to AUSTRALIA(!) I immediately did my little happy dance. Cause you do all those things so well with Designlovefest and I’d really love to hang out with you and all the Sydney blogshop peeps so a little of that inspiration and creativity and energy might rub off on me! :) Such a HUGE giveaway – thank you Bri!

  • 892. Margaret  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Holy smokes! This is awesome! I would so love to win, I’ve been blogging for about a year now but there is still so much more I want to learn. Would love to learn from you talented ladies! Also, I tweeted about it! :)

  • 893. American Debt Project  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Yes! I really want to win and come to blogshop…I follow this blog faithfully and want to infuse the same sense of style and fun design into a topic that is considered way too boring (finance) when it really can be fascinating! I also want to up my photography skills and use my own photos for my blog. Most of all, I want to appreciate the pretty and fun and girly because 99% of the time I have to be serious and not-girly because I blog about finance and work in construction!!

  • 894. Kelli  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    I would LOVE to go to Blogshop to expand my knowledge and make my blog look amazing. I started a new blog last December and feel overwhelmed when it comes to layout, collages, etc… PLUS I’ve just moved to San Francisco so the chance to meet and network with other bloggers would be absolutely wonderful!!

  • 895. hannah  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    Would absolutely LOVE to win this, going away travelling soon and would love to keep a blog while I’m away, but one that I’m proud of, BlogShop would certainly help me achieve that!!

  • 898. Tess  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:46 pm

    Bri! You are such an inspiration, and as a young woman who is aspiring to open up her own boutique (after constant encouragement from the friends and beau), I’m finally committed to building my new future. I love beautiful and vibrant things, and want to purvey vintage clothing & flea market finds for those who don’t have the patience or eye of spotting a diamond in the rough. Your blogshop would surround me with other fabulous, motivated designers and provide such a springboard into Tess version 2.0.

    PS- Coral and yellow are my two favorite colors, so before I even saw “giveaway” I thought to myself “Welp. I need that. and that. Yup- that too.”

  • 899. Ashley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 2:46 pm

And plus you guys are coming to my city, Atlanta, in my birthday month, so it is like meant to be!
    Thanks

    I have been obsessed with blogshop ever since it started. I really want to go, but it has never been in Denver and I can’t afford to go to another city. I would love to win a ticket to blogshop and having Photoshop would be a real treat. I want to have my own blog, but am overwhelmed with where to start and I just know blogshop would help me. I also die for Bri’s style and it would be a dream come true to meet her.

    I have been daydreaming about taking my life on the internet (social media) and the masters degree that I am pursuing in New Media Studies to the next level.

    Holy Moly!!!! Bri, I can’t even begin to explain how amazing this giveaway is — you are truly a sparkling generous spirit that not only inspires others, but is helping making dreams come true!! Two months ago I traded in my Flavor Chemistry career to follow my dreams of creating my own handmade clothing line using hand-painted silks, MEG + MILO. I have been truly blessed with the overwhelming support and interest in my wares — you can check them out at http://www.megandmilo.com :) Starting my own business was one thing, but you will probably chuckle when I tell you that I use Powerpoint for all of my graphic needs (coming from a science background, Powerpoint is what I knew in and out). So you can imagine how much BlogShop would hugely benefit my future vision for MEG + MILO. I would love to learn all your tricks and insider know-how to help bring a professional appearance to my brand graphics. My blog http://www.Textile-Love.com is a behind the scenes look at how I dye the silk and sew the garments for my line, and also a peak into my personal sewing and crafting adventures. Textile Love could also use a big graphic update to bring it up to the status of showcasing my love of sewing and textiles. I was so incredibly stoked when you announced the new BlogShop date for Atlanta, so my fingers will be crossed that I will get to attend!!! I have long since been a huge fan of yours, and completely include you in my daily conversations as though we are friends. Thank you for sharing your unique style and vision with the design world!!! :: hoping and praying in Hot-lanta:: megan@megandmilo.com

    You’re awesome. I’m awesome. If I go to blogshop, I believe, NO, I KNOW we will create the ultimate awesomeness and all of the design gods will weep with happy tears knowing that so much design love is going on in one room.

  • 930. stephanie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    I would LOVE to be a part of blogshop because I am ready to step out of the safe zone and take some chances! I am a seasoned graphic designer and a novice blogger and I am ready more than ever to take my business to the next level. I admire designlovefest for both it’s creativity and honesty and would be extremely blessed for an opportunity to be around open-minded, goal-oriented people!! Winning an experience like this would be unreal! Thanks for offering the chance!
    All smiles,
    Jenny

  • 933. chrisi  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    omgomg.omgomgomg!!! What an amazing opportunity it’d be to attend blogshop because 1. I love the idea of creating an online presence that reflects your personality. 2. I don’t know the first thing about photo shop and I really want to learn how to add text to photos. 3. actually, I would really enjoy learning anything that had to do with photoshop and blogging in general (as I’m fairly new at blogging). 4. hanging out with amazing & inspirational people? yes please :]
    even if I don’t win I think it’s an amazing opportunity that you’re offering and I know that it could be completely life changing! good luck everyone :]]]]

  • 934. Mindy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    Holy smokes, this is greatest giveaway of all time! I would love to win because I have been blogging for a while but I’m rubbish with photoshop. I just got a Macbook so now I really have to learn. And I’m a wedding blogger and I need to step up my inspiration boards!! Thank you!

  • 935. Dana G.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    This is a crazy and amazing giveaway. Although my blog has been neglected of late and could probably use some sprucing, I can’t lie that the most exciting part of this giveaway to me is Photoshop and the Wacom tablet. I have been wanting Photoshop as a tool to expand my creative ventures for so long. It would be an awesome blessing to win. And I don’t think it would be difficult to find someone to gift the Blogshop spot to. :)

  • 936. lenay  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:04 pm

    You weren’t lying when you said HUGE giveaway coming up!! I would probably pee my pants if I got to go to a Blogshop AND get CS6. I launched my blog this year and I really want to figure out a consistent voice throughout all my images and design…especially since I’m opening my Etsy shop this Fall! This would be an INCREDIBLE, INVALUABLE launch for success! Yippee!

    Not only do I want to go to Blogshop to spice up my own blog, I want to go to be around the people of Blogshop and also Design love fest. I feel that the energy would be bursting with creativity, inspiration, and just positive energy. I can see myself getting really inspired and learning a lot from everyone there!

  • 940. Kelly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    GAH! This is such an amazing giveaway! Outside of lurrrrving every single item in the roundup, I think blogshop would be such an amazing opportunity for a wannabe serious blogger like myself! I’ve been blogging personally for years, but would love to learn the next steps to move forward with gaining readership and potentially sponsorships on my blog! Thanks for the chance!

    Blogshop is worth attending because it’s an opportunity for me to further my knowledge, and will push my comfort level with new challenges! I want to learn more, absorb more, and create more on my blog and impact others with my kowledge, and I think bloshop will be the best way to accomplish these, and more.

  • 949. lindsey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:15 pm

    Hi! I just moved to Costa Rica for my husbands job and started a blog to document our journey. I definitely have a lot to learn about blogging and would love to win this experience. thank you!

  • 950. Amanda K.  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    Wow how is a winner going to even be picked? Clearly this is an amazing giveaway as judging by the overwhelming response.

    I’ve had a music blog now for a little over two years. I am on a constant quest to improve it, while still working a demanding day job (also in music). I’m currently on a brief hiatus to give myself time to write new posts and re-evaluate what I want the blog to be. Due to inspiration from fashion, craft, design and lifestyle blogs such as this one – I’m taking it in a much more personal direction, while still keeping rooted in music.

    I have always felt – even more so now – that my personal limitations in terms of web design, photography, photoshop and graphic design have really held me back and have never had the budget or time to learn the skills. An intensive weekend workshop with a focus on the creative blogger is exactly what I need to take the steps forward in my blog and my career – and the mountain of other amazing goodies doesn’t hurt either :)

    Thanks so much for an amazing opportunity!

  • 951. Sue  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:17 pm

    i’m a recent graduate trying to expand my skillset and entering into the world of freelance design. i never win these “sweepstake” type of things so it would be pretty darn awesome if i won. *if i win, i’d bring with me freshly baked cookies and drip coffe from hand ground maui grown beans! :)

  • 954. Jackie h  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:18 pm

    This is an awesome giveaway! Ive been following the development and success of blogs hop since the first one and have always wanted to take it–even signed up as a volunteer intern. I’d definitely use the skills in refining my current blog or towards a more focused one in the works. As a new grad student this would be an amazing opportunity! :D

  • 960. megan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:21 pm

    I’ve followed your blog religiously for quite some time, and have always dreamed of getting the opportunity to meet other students and learn in your blogshop class. I think it would be just the right motivation to get me back on my feet and get me moving in the right direction. I think experiencing this blogshop would be incredible and life changing. I’m ready to learn and be inspired!!! :)

  • 961. Kristine Aletha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:21 pm

    I just started learning Photoshop, Illustrator, and web design this year, and writing my own blog, and I know I have so much more to learn. Blogshop would help me in so many ways–expand my basic blogging and design skills, improve my creativity, and inspire me to continue to post unique, original content on my blog(s). At some point I WILL attend a Blogshop. My fingers are crossed it’s now, when I win this contest! :)

  • 962. Maggie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:22 pm

    You guys never fail to impress! I am currently a design student and have recently started a blog. Which, as many people know, is a confusing and exciting experience. I really think that these tools would help me, not only in the blogging area, but also in my studies. They would help me learn more and give me a great future.

  • 963. Jess  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:23 pm

    I have been wanting to create a blog for a while but have been intimidated by my lacking digital design skills! A blogshop class would be the most inspiring and helpful thing I could think of, to push me into blogging bliss! Regardless, keep doing what you guys do, its amazing!

    I am crushing hard on this giveaway! Can a person crush on a giveaway? I dream of going to blogshop because my photoshop skills are lame and mostly made up and I am hopelessly poor (in the fabulous-I-find-fun-deals-at-thrift-shops-and-loehmanns way) and my husband is a student and I have student loans out the wazoo and and and … #fingerscrossed

  • 966. Laura  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    WHOA. This is amazing. I attended a blogshop last year in SF/Berkeley. I very very literally couldn’t afford it at the time, but I just knew deep down in my bones that I had to find a way to make it work. I had an underground food business that I’d been pouring all my life/energy/money into the for previous two years, and knew I had to put more focus on learning design if I wanted to continue with it. I was honestly a life-changing weekend – not only because of what I learned, but because I was finally around other creative people who were HUSTLERS like me. After the workshop I was able to start doing some design for other food businesses to help support myself. I’m still poor, still hustling (my blog/website actually got hacked so I’m needing to do a complete redo!) and still trying to make it happen, and ALL I want to do is get in that video blogshop class to soak up more knowledge from you two ladies! Thanks for making it happen (for someone at least!)

I’m a work-from-home graphic designer mom and currently don’t have a blog but have thought about it…this would be a great start! Plus, wow, all the other prizes are just the cherry on top…the yellow tote is my favorite! Thank you for the opportunity Bri! :)

    As a girl with a Journalism background, I missed out a lot on the graphic design aspect of the blogging world. I would love to attend a blogshop class to hone these skills and become a better blogger all around.

    Your advice on branding, blogging and everything in between have helped me to shape the direction of my blog, but I still feel that I have a long way to go and a lot more to learn.

    Every time I pull up your page I am inspired by your business advice, a quirky photo or an awesomely styled outfit–every one of your posts really–and I think it would be an incredible experience to be surrounded by creative, hard-working people who really know how to take blogging to the next level.

    Thank you for the opportunity! Hope to hear from you :)

  • 978. Rebecca  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    Oh my goodness. I could not imagine a more generous giveaway. You and your sponsors are amazing! I would be so thankful and delighted to win!!! I am a design and photography student, just took the plunge this summer after switching gears a bit (just graduated from college with a BA in French). I am so excited to finally be pursuing my passion. I’ve been keeping an eye on your blogshop travels/journey and I am amazed and how what started out to be one class grew into an amazing course dedicated to fellow creatives who need fresh perspective and great techniques. To have the opportunity to be in one of these classes and learn from artists I admire, would be incredible, to say the least :) Anyway, just the other day I was thinking of investing in a Wacom tablet…so that might be the first thing to catch my eye, but let’s be real: all of this is just too good.

  • 979. Chad  |  August 21st, 2012 at 3:32 pm

I’m great at event design but need help getting things to look as lovely online. Blogshop would be invaluable to me for not only the photoshop education but also to learn more about branding(you know you’re a genius when it comes to that!).

    hi! i want to win the giveaway because i have long wanted to start a blog and finally did a couple of months ago. i’ve blogged in the past (like, 10 years ago, or whenever wordpress first came out) but i think i have a lot of catching up to do, and this giveaway would help so much!

  • 1010. Melissa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    And I just tweeted about the contest. Fingers and toes crossed!

  • 1015. Faith  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    I know my chances of winning this are small, but why not, right? :) I LOVE design, but I’ve been too scared to jump into the blogging world without knowledge. Also, as a student, I don’t have enough money to purchase Photoshop, let alone a Blogshop course, even though I would LOVE to attend!

    Love your blog!
    Faith

  • 1016. Luisa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    I want to come to blogshop to learn and expand my skills, meet all you amazing peeps, and get super inspired by all of you!

  • 1017. AGK  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    i’m planning to start up a personal blog again (on my bday sept 4 in fact!) and blogshop would be the most amazing way to kick start it all! <3

  • 1018. Katey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:18 pm

    I have been wanting to give my blog a facelift and learn more about how to engage my readers, while keeping the ideals of my blog. This would be amazing to win, especially CS6!

  • 1019. Tracey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:19 pm

    I am just starting my blog!! This would be just the kick I I need to get up and running awesomely!! : )

  • 1020. Jed  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    This is an absolutely amazing giveaway. I’m student teaching at the moment and creating a blog for my future classrooms is something that I would love to learn. I also do art so this could help me start up a artist blog as well

  • 1021. Jamie Santos  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    this is the first time i’ve ever heard about ‘blogshop’ and i’m truly amazed! i never knew this existed, and i’m definitely bound to share with friends and family.

    i’m a learner and i think this will help me expand beyond the templated blog themes i’m familiar with. this sounds like a really fantastic opportunity to break out of the norm to gain more “fashionable” knowledge in the blogging world, and i’d love to be part of it! please pick me :)

  • 1022. kina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:20 pm

    This giveaway is above and beyond! I want to start a blog and update my online presence for freelance graphic design so bad, but I am too busy with everyone else’s projects!

  • 1023. Michael Grolle  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    My wife (Kerry) has been talking to me about blogshop for years now, and i cannot think of anything that would make her more happy for our 1st anniversary than to send her to this amazing event. She is a graphic designer and adores all paper products, so the first anniversary (being the paper anniversary) is crucial.

  • 1024. Amy Knowlton  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    Bri, I have recently been contemplating the idea of setting up my own business, and the idea of creating a blog as well has just been too daunting. I have been longingly reading my favourite blogs trying to get tips and pointers on how to be successful! I think attending one of your much sought after blogshops would give me the motivation and skills to actually do it!
    I am only young and have aspirations to study graphic design at university but for now this sounds perfect! Thanks so much for giving everyone the chance to win such fantastic prizes. x ps. The VERY exciting news that your coming to Australia just seems like fate!!!

  • 1025. Kate  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    Best giveaway EVER! I don’t have a blog, (I’ve often dreamed of starting one but haven’t yet) but I do design as part of my job and I think blog design principles can be carried over to other aspects of page layout – and I’d LOVE to learn and get inspired from you! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 1026. elissa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    i would be thrilled to win this giveaway! i want to go to blogshop because i’ve always wanted to start my own blog. no better way to get fired up and make it happen, right?

  • 1027. bestofbklyn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    Hi! I’d love to go to blogshop to learn how to use PS better- so far I’m just self taught, and I know there is so much more I could learn! I followed DLF and BS on Facebook, and tweeted about the giveaway, too (my twitter handle is @bestofbklyn).

  • 1028. Tracey  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:24 pm

  • 1031. Meg  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    As a writer, I feel I have a lot to say and share on my blog. I just need some clean design to get those words jumping off the page…
    Big thanks for the opportunity Bri, exciting times!

  • 1032. Erika  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:28 pm

    I want to win this awesome giveaway because I’m a local designer in Charlottesville, VA looking to expand my freelance design market and really create a brand for myself. I love creating and am inspired daily by not only the people around me, but people such as yourself, who are driven and have a passion for helping other creative minds grow. The tools in this giveaway are just another way of continuing my growth in the field.

    I’ve promoted this via Facebook and Twitter, and I believe everyone should enter this. To whoever wins, I’m sure this will be a much appreciated gift! :)

    My blog focuses on urban agriculture and ethical eating!

    What my blog needs: more original, creative content.

    The solution? … blogshop!

    I’ve tweeted and followed BS on FB (I obvs already followed Bri!). Twitter handle is @shaunanep. Thanks!

  • 1035. Marie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    My oh my could I use this! I’ve been working on my blog for about 3 years now…but have yet to actually publish it because I just dont feel it’s at it’s best. [Enter Blogshop] I’m a working mom who started out with a dream of going law school and now I feel like I cant get out of my 9-5 job; nor do I have the extra cash flow to afford Blogshop…or any of the useful tools to make my blog a reality! [Enter this "big time" giveway] With it, I can hopefully make a blog into a career and who would I have to thank? [Enter Bri].

  • 1036. Vina  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    OMG! This is a dream come true giveaway!! I’ve been trying to start my own blog for the past year but I feel like I don’t know everything or as much as I need to know! Winning this will help me to gain the knowledge, motivation, and inspiration I need!

    Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

  • 1040. Ashley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Every dollar Ive been saving has been to go towards classes in photoshop/illustrator so I can get my blog/website going for my business! The class alone would be enormously helpful but the program would just be the cherry on top! Thank you for offering such an amazing prize!

  • 1047. DJ  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    I haven’t been updated in Photoshop in at least 6 or 7 years. I’m taking a big change in life and moving towards my dreams. Although my background is in film and photography, I haven’t used these skillsets but I am intent to rekindle them again. I would especially love to make gifs and use video in CS6. I want to use these skills to better promote my the photography non-profit I started with a friend a year ago. My gratitude to you and your team! Be well!

  • 1048. Marilou  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:40 pm

    *fingers crossed*

  • 1055. Kait  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    I want to come to blogshop because I’m about to graduate college and start my own freelance business in photography but I’m completely unprepared in the realm of graphic design and how to create a compelling blog! I’ve spent so much money on college and equipment that I really can’t afford to go to Blogshop if not for this giveaway! (Just when you guys are finally coming to Atlanta!)

  • 1056. Kellye  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    This is AWESOME! I would love to attend Blogshop but I’m a student on a budget and just can’t splurge on it! I have a blog which I have all but given up on and I know this would give me the boost I need to kick it into gear!

  • 1057. Hilary  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    I can’t remember the last time I was this excited about a giveaway! You’ve put together something really incredible here, Bri!! I know this would be an amazing opportunity for so many different people… but I’m crossing my fingers that it’s me!!

    For the past two and a half years, I’ve been quietly working away at my blog without the slightest intentions of making it more than a hobby. But, now I’m ready to take things to the next level and some day build my blog into an online destination for inspiration much like you’ve done here on designlovefest. It feels like such a silly dream sometimes, especially when the tools to achieve my goal seem so far out of reach. Attending Blogshop and bringing this incredible package of tools & goodies home would be a tremendous help in setting me in the right direction!

    Here’s hoping!!!

  • 1058. Courtney K  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    Such a great giveaway. I’d love to come just to refresh myself on photoshop and the new things it can do. Although I studied graphic design for my major in college and still use photoshop daily, it’s always nice to learn new tricks!

  • 1059. Hilary  |  August 21st, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    I have entered the world of blogging & love it! Everything I have done so far seems like a miracle.
    The truth is I need a serious lesson in just how it ALL works I have the vision, now I just need the expertise to make it happen properly. I am utterly inspired and ready to roll. My beautiful friend @ Wiley Valentine says I NEED YOU ! I think she’s right…
    You have been liked & tweeted…Fingers crossed.

    i would LOVE to win the chance to participate in blogshop because it was created by people who have the lived experience of being a successful blogger. Bri, you really know your stuff & it’s great that you’re willing to share :) It’s funny to me that a career as a “blogger” didn’t even exist a couple years ago and now look where we are!

    I have a blog but got overwhelmed with all the other much cooler blogs so I stopped posting a year ago. I want to start again but this time the right way.
    I also just really want to meet you guys! Today is my bday and this would be the best gift ever! Thanks for offering this opportunity. I will head on over to Facebook.

  • 1065. Leslie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:00 pm

  • 1066. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:00 pm

  • 1067. Samantha Penner  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    I think I would literally DIE if I won this giveaway. I have been wanting to attend Blogshop since I first heard about it. I think it would help me develop my 1 year old blog in to a more true expression of me. Plus, I would love to meet you, Bri! :)

  • 1068. Minna So  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:01 pm

(; i think it’s always good to have a mentor, or someone that inspires you, and to me i think you are it! haha i have been blogging for a few years now, and i hope to learn more about growing it into something more, and of course making it more appealing to the eye! also, those goodies are just amazing! thanks for the chance to win! – minna

    !!! Oh my goodness, Bri. Ok so I am about to put myself through graphic design school. I’m a VERY recent college grad and finally realized, post graduation (dang it) that design is what i love and where i NEED to be. That blogshop class would jumpstart my confidence SO much and I’ve just been dying to go. Also I’m obsessed with the iphone case and cord and could really use that CS6, girl. :) Great giveaway!

  • 1074. Jaimie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    This trumps all other giveaways. But seriously… I have always wanted to curate my own blog of pretty little things. The only problem is, I lack the skills to create a graphically appealing site. I know that through Blogshop I would be able to create something ah-mazing! This would also help me out professionally being that I work in the world of home and garden magazines. Unfortunately, Blogshop doesn’t fit into the post-grad budget (woof). I have been a devoted reader to your blog. Please pick me!

    I would LOVE to be able to come to Blogshop! If I could afford it, I already would have signed up, but as a recent grad/ intern there’s no way I have the means. This opportunity would help me learn how to overhaul my blog, and since my goal is open my own event coordination and design business, I’ll need my blog to market myself. This would be such a rad opportunity! :)

  • 1080. Marilynn Ly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    I would love to win this! As an avid food blogger I have always wanted to make my photos better but I admit I’m lazy to self-teach myself. I love your blog and respect and admire you, therefore I’d actually listen to and follow-through with what I would learn at your blogshop! Thank you for the opportunity :)

  • 1083. Melanie b  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    Oh heck yes what a great opportunity! I have a tumblr, which I’ve listed and I love it but I have hundreds of followers but no chance to communicate with them because of the site format. I’d like to start a new blog that’s more personal. I am pretty tech saavy but I don’t know a ton about photoshop and I’d love to edit photos like bri does! I always lust after blogshop but the price stops me. This is free and has swag?! Fingers crossed from a beloved fellow blogger and reader

  • 1084. Dani  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    I have been dreaming of the day when I could finally attend one of your workshops – what a brilliant opportunity!

    My blog has been plodding along for nearly 2 years now and I’m finally starting to find my voice, my content is getting better, but I need that little bit of guidance to turn my posts from ‘Good’ to ‘AMAZING’! From the reviews and photos I’ve seen, Blogshop would be able to give me the confidence and knowledge I need to take my blog from a hobby to a serious endeavour. I would also love the opportunity to meet and mingle with other bloggers and share what I have learnt in my experiences with them (and vice versa!) Thanks for such a generous giveaway!

  • 1085. Tutti  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    What an amazing opportunity! I always need new Photoshop skills, but I want to come mostly because your sessions look like the most amazing fun learning sessions I’ve ever seen, and sometimes there’s glitter involved!

  • 1086. Jenna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    Although I have not started my own blog yet, I read Designlovefest, as well as many others, religiously. I keep reading that when starting a blog, or taking a similar creative leap, one never feels ready, but I still haven’t made the plunge quite yet.

    However, I will be starting my undergraduate thesis this fall and have chosen to write about blogging! I will be looking at the entrepreneurial aspects of blogging, as well as the branding, content creation and niche blogs involving design, fashion and lifestyle topics. I would love the opportunity to attend Blogshop to speak with Bri, as well as many other talented bloggers and give myself the extra push to start my own blog, which will hopefully be a part of my thesis. I am able to get some money from my university, however it appears as though Blogshop is out of my budget. I have been looking for ways to obtain more money or save my own to attend, but am not nearly close enough.

    Designlovefest is one of my favorite blogs, for the beautiful images, advice about design careers, and always exciting content, and would be the perfect place to start gathering information for my thesis. Thanks so much for hosting such a fabulous giveaway and your consideration! Have a good day!

    Haha well entering this giveaway as comment # 1077 seems futile, and I don’t normally enter these things because I really do have the worst luck, it seems too good not to. I started a blog with my sister a year ago because my day job as an environmental engineer, while challenging, sometimes leaves me sad in my heart. I have been desperate to attend BlogShop since I’ve heard about it, but have been lacking in funds. I have been playing around with Photoshop Elements since I purchased it earlier this year, often trying to emulate some of your collages, and learning from you (Bri) would be amazing. I would also love to win Photoshop because I can never see myself being able to spend that much on a program that is not day-job related.

  • 1089. Jamie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    Loveee this giveaway! I don’t blog…yet…but I have built my career around social media and I am looking for that next thing to take it even further. These tools could help me do just that.

    I am a TV Reporter in Canada and also help to coordinate social media for large events. I wanted so badly to come to the last blogshop in TDot, but couldn’t afford to get out of the prairies. I just bought my first mac and would love to PIMP IT OUT with the updated version on PhotoShop. And though that is a super wicked awesome giveaway it’s really the wacom that I am dying for ever since I read your blog entry about these. I love when you create your own font…the design in designlovefest gets me every time! :)

  • 1090. Scout  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:19 pm

    Holy crap! How awesome! Obviously, I’d love to win :) I want to go to blogshop because I really love blogging and want to do a better job, plus I’d like to be a photographer, and I think learning more about blogging would be helpful.
    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    I want to go to blogshop because I really feel that being around so many amazing people, who just happen to be bloggers will give me more confidence in my own work! I have already booked a place in the Sydney blogshop (just the day before I found out you are running one in Melbourne, where I live!HA!)… but I think it’s super amazing that you are bring blogshop to Australia, since I’ve fancied it from afar for far too long now. Much love! x

  • 1092. vanchocstraw  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    I took blogshop in Austin in January, and have some good friends who would be blown away if I could gift them the whole shebang!

  • 1093. Soyoung  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:20 pm

    Holy wow this is an amazing giveaway. I’ve been a long time reader of many different blogs, but only very recently started my own. My day job is not at all design or art related, and while I love it, I always felt like the creative side of my personality kept getting lost in the daily shuffle. I started my personal blog as an outlet for my artistic interests, and have been really enjoying the blogging process. I would LOVE to win a spot in blogshop to learn so many new skills and really grow as a creative person. You’re picking the winner on my wedding anniversary, so I’m hoping that brings me some extra luck. :) I’ve liked DesignLoveFest on Facebook, and am about to go give this some twitter love (handle @dogearpress) as well. Thanks to you and all of the amazing sponsors for this incredible giveaway!

    I would love to win a spot at Blogshop so I could use the skills to push my travel blog to a new place- one where so few travel blogs go. Just because the destinations are awesome, why not add more flair and make the blog just as beautiful to look at! The other goodies would just be using on the cake!

  • 1095. Kae  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:22 pm

    Wowza!! Now this is a giveaway! So many wonderful things, but the best is blogshop. I’ve had my own blog for almost two years and really want to step it up a notch. It’s a hobby for my creative juices since my job has ZERO creativity to it. Learning all there is to learn about photoshop from someone I’ve admired for some time would be the BEST. I already like designlovefest on facebook and follow you on twitter… I’ll be tweeting away for more chances! Thanks for such a wonderful opportunity.

A tall order in a world with so many amazing bloggers. I respect the work of designlovefest and their desire to spread their knowledge to others. Blogshop would be a perfect kickstart to get my humble blog moving in the right direction!

  • 1112. Annie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    I would love to win because I’m still a fairly new blogger– my baby blog is only about six months old. I feel confident in my writing abilities, but graphic designs, layouts, presenting things in a visually appealing way.. that’s never something I’ve known how to do. It would be wonderful to buff up those skills!

    I’ve been drooling over the work I’ve seen coming out of Blogshop for a while now, and I’d love a chance to go. Right now I only have a Pinterest presence (almost 5k followers, though!) and I want to expand that into a real blog. I think the fun I’d have mastering the photoshop and design skills I’d need to create layouts and images would inspire me (and, more importantly, give me the confidence) to really go for it. Plus, I can’t even imagine how many cool people I’d meet in the workshop.

  • 1120. Katie Shill  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    I want to win this giveaway because I’ve just started a blog (after many, many tries), and I’d love to be able to use it as an escape from my daily life & my day job. I have the DESIRE to start a blog and keep it up, I’m just not sure how to go about making it my own, and I think blogshop would inspire me to do just that. It would be such a wonderful experience to learn from you and your team, but also surround myself with other people who are looking to expand their skills in the blogosphere! Thank you so much for doing this giveaway. You truly are an inspiration. Xx

I want to use my photos in new and creative ways on my website. And I want to get energized and inspired by Bri and all the fab people that attend blogshop. Living in the midwest, when you’re not from here, adds to the need for an injection of creative goodness!

    “Big Time Giveaway??” YES PLEASE! After starting to blog this past January, frankly, we need some major re-vamping. And, obviously, blogshop is the best and only place to do that! I think the biggest place we need improvement is our branding/individual style. We love people like Bri from Designlovefest and Joy from Oh Joy! But, how do we express our own unique style (especially as Americans living in China)? This question has been nagging at me and I really want to be able to explore that more fully; the ability to create graphics/images/photographs that say, “This is Connecting Four” (with out actually saying it). And the giveaway is pretty much incredible. The laptop case is super cute, and the tablet/photoshop copies are to DIE FOR.
    Excited? Yes. Ready to change the way I blog? Yes.

    Ever get the feeling you aren’t doing what you’e supposed to? Creatively…professionally…personally? For me, that thing was a creating a blog. That one special outlet to let my brain run wild and free! A purpose for that creative fuel, that inner voice…and maybe even that journalism degree. What I’m missing is a few special things in my toolbox- the knowledge to take something cool and turn it into something badass. The right building blocks to create a great foundation for my blog. The confidence that blogshop gives it’s students. And let’s be real…new friends to get CS6 geeky with! This is more than a giveaway…this is an investment in someone’s future. My glittery fingers are crossed!

  • 1140. Lillian-Marie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    Attending blogshop would be amazing! I’m headed back to school after a few years away to finish up my graphic design degree and this would definitely help start me off on the right foot. I’ve had my eye on attending for awhile but sadly it’s been out of my budget. Also, I’m still using CS3 and could reeeaaallly use a photoshop update!

I am a budding fashion designer and am starting my own blog and online store, I have begun to learn some things and am sonoroud that I taught myself a bit of HTML (it’s tough stuff!) but there is so much more to creating these little works of art and I want to learn it!!!!!! SOOOO BADLY!!! P.s. I’ve been asking for a Wacom for my birthday, but my parents are not the most tech savvy folks! Crossing my fingers and my toes down here in Texas ;)

I have just started a blog. :) Actually, though, I would LOVE to give this to a blogging friend of mine (also a poor student) who is super creative and extremely talented (in addition to being consistent with her blogging, in contrast to me).

    Hi-what a fabulous and amazing giveaway! I started my blog a little over a year ago (love it, great way to express my passion) and just recently got it designed by the amazing Eva Black. I want to be able to post blogs that do justice to my beautiful blog design. Photoshop is a constant mystery to me and I’d really like to change that. I have been wanting to come to blogshop for as long as I’ve known about it but just don’t have the funds. I would love the opportunity to learn more and create pretty things, like you do.

I’m an elementary school teacher and he’s a designer so our worlds (unfortunately) don’t often collide. We want to have a place for us to come together, learn from each other, and collaborate on something uniquely us! I would also really love to be able to integrate some of this knowledge into my classroom and get my kiddos into good design young. Honestly, my husband and I look at your blogshop classes daily. I would maybe even gift it to him and have him come back and teach me. So many ideas! Thanks for putting this on!

    My siblings and I have just began a joint blog which is a way for us to stay connected as we move in different directions (college and beyond). We made a goal to try this whole blogging/socialmedia/photography/brainstorming process out for 365 days. We wanted to allow enough time to get organized and get into the groove of things before deciding if its something that we want to continue full force. I just graduated last year and have decided to take one year off to explore different options for college and future careers. One of my goals this year is to work full time on the blog yet there are tools i need to do this. I am working on photoshop CS3 and honestly I would LOVE to try out their newer versions. Blogshop has been on my radar for a while now and I almost attended the one this month in Dallas but wasn’t able to :( I would LOVE to win this giveaway in order to really take advantage of the time i have this semester and blog blog blog!

  • 1152. Michael (Connecting4)  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:04 pm

    Bringing back memories from a year ago: I cannot help thinking this is something like college applications to your dream schools… everyone wants it, everyone has so much talent and everyone deserves it-but only one can actually get it.

    It was really cool to be able to scroll through some of the comments/entries and ear a bit about people’s stories, and also see their blogs-where they are and where they are going.

    Good luck to all in your blogging endeavours!

  • 1165. Brianne McNeeley  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    Hi, you are awesome :) Here is a list of reasons why I am dying to win:
    1. I freaking love your blog. I want to learn from the best.
    2. I am a college student 30 credit hours away from graduating with a BA in computer graphic design.
    3. I am poor. (I can’t afford the class, I’d be there if I could!)
    4. I want to improve my sad, cookie-cutter blog. It’s a style blog: something I NEVER thought I would do but due to being an alien in the college world of sweats and work-out clothes, I needed an outlet to make myself feel better about not fitting in and wearing clothes instead of spandex.
    5. I will soon be in the working world and I know that this class would give me skills that the professors didn’t show me that would help me to stand out in the professional world.

    Thank you so much for all of the inspiration and advice you give to me and others out there!

    I have been playing with the idea of having a blog for the past several years. Sure, I’ve had a typical teenage whiney blog back in high school, but I began to realize that there are a lot of things, from interior design to fashion to food, with some traveling sprinkled in, that I would really like to share with the world. A natural writer and designer, blogging suits me. However, I find myself wondering where to start and wondering what direction I really want to take my blog in. I feel that attending a blogshop would immensely help in the development of my blog, as well as really get me motivated to completely go for it! Also, HOW FUN DO THESE LOOK?! So much fun, that’s how much fun.

  • 1172. erica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    This would be amazing to win! I’ve been blogging for awhile but I’m ready to take it to the next level and learn how to make my blog what I really want it to be.

    Oh man, where to begin. I’ve been dreaming of going to blogshop since you first began this class. As a design student at the time, nothing sounded more fun, and as I began my career in design, and my own blog as a side project, I wanted to go even more. Photoshop is a tool that I unfortunately don’t use at work everyday, I’m in the environmental design business, so my skills have begun to dwindle. Having a refresher would be the greatest, and getting to meet amazing people even better! Winning this contest would mean the world to me. Cross my fingers! I also tweeted, and liked and commented for blogshop and designlovefest on facebook!

  • 1174. Theresa  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    What an amazing opportunity! I think I have officially entered every Blogshop giveaway to date in hopes of winning a coveted spot in this amazing course. I would love to win this giveaway so I can finally leave Pages behind, take my blog to the next level, and properly learn mad Photoshop skills, and I can’t think of better people to learn from then Bri and Angela as it applies to blogging. Plus, to be a part of Blogshop’s inspiring learning environment would be an invaluable experience. As I write this comment, I currently have a 1 and 1,167 chance of winning. (fingers x) Good luck everyone!

  • 1182. Taryn  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    As a design student, I’d love to learn about Photoshop and blogging in a way other than what my professors teach! Learning from the Blogshop gals would be a dream come true to help me learn from amazing designers I’m constantly inspired by.

  • 1183. Dani  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:34 pm

Blogging has been a real savior for me during medical school as a creative outlet, but I don’t know the first thing about photoshop or html and would really love to be able to take the next step with your brilliant class!

  • 1188. Sarah  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    I would absolutely love to win this giveaway.

I could really use a dose of inspiration for starting my own blog!

  • 1189. Robin  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    My husband, Jeff, is the hardest working man I know. He is an antique dealer specializing in pinballs, jukeboxes, advertising and coin-operated pieces. His business is growing with technology and if I could set up a blog where he could showcase his “picks” for sale, not only would it help his business but it could also afford me the opportunity to directly support his efforts when he is on the road. This amazing giveaway is a chance to branch out our family’s business and unify our efforts. Thank you for your consideration!!

  • 1190. Elizabeth  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:37 pm

  • 1197. Jessica  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Hey Bri, I’ll keep this short and sweet! I have been an avid reader of your blog for over a year now and it’s been so much fun to watch it grow and change. I really liked your post about coming into your own and figuring out your design style, which is why I am writing this comment. I would love to attend your blogshop to get inspired, spruce up my blog and of course have fun while I’m at it!

  • 1198. Taylor A. Gass  |  August 21st, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    Hi Bri!!
    I really really REALLY want to win this contest and I am truly crossing my fingers and toes for luck! I wish to attend blogshop because of a few reasons. The first being that I literally am OBSESSED with your blog and all the content you put out and want to meet you ever so badly. I also want to go because although I am a web and graphic design major at my college, we don’t get to do any great things like “How to Make Your Blog Pretty 101″, which is what I want to do; make my blog pretty. I have been a hopeful blogger for years and have finally started one up and have high hopes for it! Taking this class and winning all these goodies would just make it even better!!
    Also, I tweeted about your contest and have “liked” you on facebook for quite sometime.

    I would love to go to Blogshop because I am an inspired and eager student who would love to have a solid introduction to the tools and knowledge that are used to create Design Love Fest and my blog could definitely use a facelift (or a clean slate). Also I get excited and instantly inspired looking at Bri’s pinterest and Design Love Fest. I check them religiously and it is probably unhealthy!

    Bri,
    This is the coolest giveaway ever!!! I have been following Blogshop quietly for a while and I love that you give chances for people to attend that may not otherwise be able to + all the extra stuff. I sent out an email announcing a blog written by moi when I got laid off 4 years ago. Since that time I have started my own business but the blog has been much slower going. I would love to attend Blogshop to really get my blog off the ground. Right now she is contained neatly in a journal and she wants to burst free onto the virtual pages. Thanks again.

    I’m a bit of a dreamer – major ideas, sourced from major inspirations, with major ambitions. I’ve often told myself there’s no place for realistic or practical in my dreams. Did Diana Vreeland trouble herself with technical skills? Does Cyndi Lauper worry about dotting her I’s and crossing her T’s? Pish posh.

    But then I went on a job interview, and presented my best face. My best dreams, my best aspirations. I was on fire! I was solid! I went above and beyond in a second trial interview, where I worked and was ten steps ahead of where I needed to be. I was told I was fantastic, I was superb – things felt good.

    Ultimately, it came down to the other candidate just having more familiarity with programs then I did. Plain and simple.

    It was an invaluable experience, in the end – not a minute of time wasted, and I wasn’t disappointed. Instead, I’ve been on fire, researching classes and programs and opportunities to improve the skillset I’m currently lacking, and feeling motivated to start incorporating a bit more of my right brain into my left brain way of thinking.

    Blogshop would be fantastic, and I’d relish the chance.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Hi Bri and team! This giveaway is really too good to be true, it’s like I’m dreaming!
    I’d love to go for blogshop to hone my skills in photoshop and make my blog more appealing to readers. I’ve been blogging for about 3 years, but I find that I don’t have anything interesting to share and there’s nothing much that catches the eye. I believe blogshop can help me think more creatively and create pretty images while helping me develop my blog more effectively. I have this dream of doing handmade goodies and selling them online too. Photoshop skills would help a whole lot :) Plus, it’s my lifelong dream to travel to America, especially New York and San Francisco. All the crazy amazing freebies don’t hurt either!

    Much love from Malaysia!

    I’ve been following Design Love Fest since the Design Sponge feature and have never missed a post since. It’s nspirational work that I have applied to study Graphic Design at University in the new year and would love the head start with some funky skills from the Sydney class :)

  • 1253. Whitney  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    I have had my eye on blogshop for a LONG time but am newly married and simply don’t have the budget for it! I have just been getting into ‘creative’ blogging if you will and would love all the advice, guidance and inspiration that blogshop has to offer.

  • 1254. Ashley Monaghan  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    I would absolutely kill for this opportunity. Not only is the giveaway fantastic, but I’ve always wanted to be able to go to blogshop! I’m only 17, and have kept a personal blog, but I want to start a fashion/design/culture blog and possibly a business once I get to college. I have even discussed starting a magazine with some of my older friends this year (using issu.com). These tips and tools would be perfect to learn so I can get my foot in the door. Y’all haven’t come to New Orleans yet, but I’m waiting for the day. Big dreams.

  • 1255. Milette  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    I opened my WordPress blog last year, I just started posting onto it last month (after staring at the WordPress dashboard for a year). I sometimes feel so lost in the blogosphere and could really use going to blogshop!

  • 1256. Laura Royal  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    I’ve been wanting to go for years so this would be wonderful to win!

  • 1257. Joleen Chrisman  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    This is the best giveaway! I have a blog, which I rarely update :( BUT I am plotting some BIG plans in the near future! I think the photo part of Blogshop would be really beneficial! Fingers crossed :)

  • 1258. Samantha  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    What a great give away! I haven’t had the opportunity to go to blogshop. I currently have a blog but I’m looking to start a new one with the kids I work with in an effort to teach them web and graphic design. Winning would be awesome!

  • 1259. Jamie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    I have become completely obsessed with blogging, and any new information I can get to tweek and make my blog more spectacular is always a good thing. This is an absolutely amazing giveaway, and would be honored if I won. Keep rocking it ladies!

  • 1260. Hannah Akers  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:42 pm

    Obviously I would DIE to win this giveaway. I don’t even know where to start. Maybe I would go crazy if I got to meet Bri and Angela! Also, My blog is kind of lagging compared to whats going on out there in the blogsphere, and I would LOVE to learn all the tricks of the trade. PLUS! Freaking photoshop! I spend hours a day on my version, and I have messed around on the CS6 trial, and who WOULDNT want that. And the accessories, come on. You guys just want us to be super jealous of whoever wins this thing! PICK ME! x

  • 1261. Stephanie @ henry happened  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:43 pm

  • 1268. Joy  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    I am so thrilled to see this opportunity for a free blogshop class! Although I haven’t had the push to go out on my own and start my lifestyle blog, I would hope this class would give me the confidence. To be in a room of like minded people all forging their own path in this virtual world, the brainstorming and creativity alone would be insurmountable. Although I am just one of thousands of entries, I hope that I could bring my gusto of storytelling to life with a bit of help from your class. If all else, please consider a class in Tampa!

  • 1269. Milan Cook  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    Hi! Oh my gosh. If I won this thing I might just die. Just die. I am 15, and aspiring to hopefully go into the photography/advertising business! I adore the style and image that your blog has! I would love to learn about how to design and a little help with editing in photoshop wouldn’t hurt ;)I have pretty much begged my parents to let me join! But its a little to expensive! Also my blog is lacking, to say the least! I really love the blog! :) And what an amazing opportunity!

  • 1270. Anna  |  August 21st, 2012 at 7:47 pm

    AH! I would love to win this giveaway mostly for the chance to come to Blogshop! It looks amazing but is unfortunately not in the budget! As a student blogging with her best friend, it would be so crazy awesome to learn some photoshop skills. This is the best giveaway I have ever seen! Thank you!

    I’m an aspiring wedding planner who started a blog not too long ago, and I have always wanted to attend a blogshop class to spruce up my posts on my blog! I’ve been waiting patiently for a D.C blogshop class and just this week, I found out that you guys are coming here!!! The problem is, I’m broke and I can’t afford to take the class right now. This would be an awesome way to not miss the class!

I want more than anything to be a writer, and I love all things media. I’m a recent college grad with a new blog I just started 20SomethingDiaries and an older tumblr I’ve had forever ( stormieleoni.tumblr.com) .
    I so desperately want to take my graphics to the next level!!!!
    this would be such an amazing gift, and your advice and guidance would ROCK my world, and I’m sure help me in so so so many ways!

    Hi, Bri! I read your blog daily and just got so excited when I saw this giveaway! I have been wanting to go to school for graphic design for a couple of years and I finally started two weeks ago. I’m thirty-two and so very happy that I went back to school! My husband starts school next week and my daughter just started 1st grade… it’s a very exciting time for us! I would love to attend blogshop and learn from you and Angela. I think that it will help me with school and learn how to spruce up my blog and photos.

    Thanks for having this awesome giveaway!!! I already like designlovefest and blogshop on facebook, so I’ll be tweeting about this!

I really really would love to win this giveaway! I am also pretty excited that the Bamboo Wacom tablet is included. I’ve been wanting one for awhile. I still have Photoshop CS3 so an upgrade is def needed. This would be a huge blessing if I win! Thanks Bri for this amazing giveaway and opportunity.

I wanted more than anything to go to your London one, but work wise I couldn’t get there. No matter how much I begged my boss for the time off. So having the change to go to another one would be amazing…I am prepared to fly to you! I need to make this blog thing happening! And I would like me one of the tablets too!

I would consider this opportunity an investment in my future career endeavors. Thank you for the opportunity.

  • 1346. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    I would LOVE to attend Blogshop! As a recent college grad, I don’t have the resources to get there on my own. I have been trying to learn photoshop on my own, but I need help!!! Also, my sister and I work on our blog together, which keeps us connected while we live far away from each other. Blogshop would improve our blogging experience immensely! Fingers crossed :)

  • 1347. Carolyn Allen  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:04 pm

    What an incredible giveaway! I would love to attend Blogshop because I am a young, aspiring photographer who needs some help (from the experts!) mastering photoshop.

  • 1348. Jahana  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    What a wonderful giveaway and opportunity! I would love to attend the blogshop. I attended a wonderful school for design, but realized it somewhat drained the fun out of what I do. Whenever I visit this blog or look at the pictures posted from the past blogshops – it makes me excited about design again! I’m building a letterpress business now (focused on weddings) and I’m trying to develop a blog, but need guidance. Since I’m building a new business – my funds don’t allow me to attend a blogshop at this time, so this giveaway comes at the perfect time and I would love to be there!

  • 1366. Liza  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Oh my gosh, this giveaway is insane. All of these prizes are crazy exciting! I want to come to Blogshop for many reasons, but here is a handful to get you started: one, to clean, shine, and basically pretty up my blog. Two, to advance my pen-and-paper skills to the digital realm. Three, my boyfriend and I are starting up a store to sell art and handmade goods, and I would love to have some help and inspiration for branding and honing our online presence.

    Thanks for doing this, Bri! :)

  • 1367. Kelly  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    I would die to have to chance to go to blogshop!! I’ve been teaching myself photoshop so I guess I know the basic basics but I want to learn more. I’ve been practicing on my work Facebook but I want to take it to the next level. I want to start my own blog, but being the perfectionist I am I have been holding off because I want it to look nothing but awesome! I hope that I’m able to have this amazing opportunity to learn from the blog masters

    Here’s a girl equipped only with irrational optimism and a domain so new it only has a name. There’s so much excitement in that name it sets her on fire with inspiration. And in her mind she imagines a delicious combination of images and writing and just the right amount of locally grown food for thought. She knows all the ripest minds to pick and she believes in cultivating creativity. She dreams of travelling the world to see how it’s done. Finally, tired of fruitless dreaming, she enters a contest with the odds set impossibly against her. But having seen magic in deserts she knows, every now and again the impossible happens. Even to her.

  • 1370. Erica Louie  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    Hi Bri!! THANK you SO much for having this wonderful giveaway. I would love to win because I am such a huge fan of your work, and I know Blogshop would elevate my Blog & YouTube channel to its full potential. It’s just me and my boyfriend who write/shoot/edit/produce all of my content on top of our full time jobs, but we are so passionate about blogging that we look forward to it when we come home at the end of everyday. I started my blog/YouTube as just a hobby, and now I realize that it is what I want to do with my life. I really feel that attending Blogshop will help me get closer to that dream. Each one of your posts is such an incredible inspiration to me. I follow designlovefest religiously, and it would be such an honor to attend one of your Blogshops. Thank you for this opportunity!! XOXO MISS LOUIE

  • 1372. Melinda  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    I would love to attend blogshop because it looks like a really fun way to learn what I need to use photoshop to smarten up my blog. At the moment, I only have photoshop elements because it was affordable and I have taught myself a few tricks, but I would love the real thing and to learn some real skills.

  • 1373. Cheyenne  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:39 pm

    This is unreal!! I am a photographer & (failing) lifestyle blogger. I now live in rural Indiana and have no innovative and current young artists to talk to in person or learn from. I need to connect with people I admire and learn how to have my blogs look rad, current, modern, glamourous, and GD professional!

  • 1374. Elena Hartwig  |  August 21st, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    I’d love to win this giveaway as I’m just about to finish my last year of high school and am wanting to start a fashion, photography and design blog with my best friend and possibly future business partner.

    This is a super amazing giveaway! I just recently started my blog and am very curious about what your class has to offer.

  • 1403. Libby  |  August 21st, 2012 at 10:59 pm

    I would love to come along to blogshop as I’m just at the beginnings of starting a new blog about the ethical fashion market. I’m so passionate about fashion, but want to empower people with the knowledge of how we can make choices in what we wear that have a positive impact in the world. Who wouldn’t love to find out how easy it can be to choose some fair trade jeans or a great pair of sustainable heels? I want to be empowered with the tools and skills I need at blogshop to be able to promote this side of fashion to the best of my ability.

  • 1404. Sarolta  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    I am a design student who still has to work with Photoshop Elements. And I hope so much to get to Blogshop. I think that’s it for me. This giveaway is unbelievable and it also includes Blog Inc. which is on my wishlist since I first heard about the book. And of course I liked designlovefest and blogshop on Facebook.

  • 1405. anne  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    blogshop has, and still is, every blogger’s dream…heck, even if a person doesn’t blog, they still want to come. it’s more than just figuring out how to make a blog stand out–it’s about meeting people, making connections, and bringing out the best in people. for someone like me, i’ve always wanted to make the jump from casual blogger/tumblr re-blogger to actual author. blogshop gives everyone the confidence and the assurance to become the vision we only dream about. also: it just looks like so much fun. it’s a living delight!

  • 1406. Kim  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    I’m not your typical ‘creative person’. I was always more of a nerd. Finished med school and everything i do now feels so serious. On the other hand, colours make me FEEL happy, i love fresh flowers and enjoy finding the little beauties in life more than anything. Your blog is such a display of happy and joy. Blogshop would be an incredible way to let my secret creative side grow a little. And perhaps the push i need to finally start a little blog of my own. A scary dream i’ve had for a while now. Thank you for the inspiration Bri!

  • 1410. katinaki  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:39 pm

  • 1411. Lauren  |  August 21st, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Why I want to come to blogshop?!
    I just recently Graduated and moved back home to the San Francisco Bay Area. I have an extreme passion for following blogs and believe that in my industry (Fashion Marketing) it is KEY to know how to produce your own blog/social media accounts. I am driven and have since my hard work pay off. I would love to attend your SF Blogshop but I unfortunately do don’t have a big girl job yet to support an expense like that, nor do I have the latest CS6. I have a newer blog that I started back in March and take pride in the branding work that I have done throughout it, but I am learner and I am always interested in new ideas and outsider’s perspectives. I would love to be given this amazing opportunity and to be able to make new friends.

    Sincerely,
    Lauren Merrill

    Plus, let’s be honest….how fun does Blogshop look? Learning, goodie bags and good eats- GIMMIE!

  • 1417. Kelsey Ann  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 12:10 am

    Always wanted to start a blog, but I am too much of a perfectionist that if it doesn’t look the way I want it to, I won’t publish. Problem is I don’t even have the skills to begin to make posts look the way I want, so learning from the best at Blogshop would be ideal!

  • 1418. Renee  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 12:12 am

    I’m a long-time blogger, with a writing background. I also freelance, creating websites and marketing tools for local non-profits. Right now, I make do with Picasa & basic photo-editing skills, but know I could do SO much more (for myself, friends, and clients) if I had the proper equipment and skills. I’ve long admired Blogshop, but can’t afford it on my current budget. Thank you for offering such a generous giveaway!

  • 1419. Danya (Dan Mae)  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 12:15 am

    HAI

    First, um, this is like the best giveaway ever.

    Second, I live in South Africa and to be honest, I may just have an aneurism and die if it were ever to be announced that Blogshop was coming to, say, Cape Town (you should think about it, Bri, for Cape Town is totally pretty in the summer, in the summer). However, I plan to be in the States soon and I will beg, borrow or steal to find myself a spot in one of your fabulous classes.

    I’ve been blogging for almost ten years now and it has always been something that I thoroughly enjoy immensely, simply because it has been a way to write what I want when I’m busy writing what I’m told.

    I’d LOVE to go to Blogshop and hone, hone, hone the skills i already have. PLUS, learn new ones. And then, I’ll have a blog as slick and as smooth as the one you call your own. Learning is the easiest way to make yourself a better person and this is the best way to learn!

    I really really want to be a part of blogshop! Your posts have made me crave that experience for a while :) I’ve had a blog with my best friend for a little over a year now and while it’s still fun I’m getting a bit annyoed by the ‘design’ and really really want something new and fresh. Unfortunately my photoshop skills are pretty limited and I would really cherish some help!

  • 1434. Minty  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 1:16 am

    WHAT A BEAUTY! This may be the most glorious and generous prize I’ve ever gazed my design-admiring eyeballs upon. I would love to come to blogshop! I’m constantly in awes by other people’s inspiration/imagination/station blogs, I’ve never done the blog thing and would love to learn the mystery behind the magic. Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity designlovefest! You bring’ng ALL the love.

I found your blog through Sarah Yates Photography´s blog, I love your style and I´ve been following you for a while, you works inspires in so many levels and would be flattered to meet you! Wish you all the great success.

    Your blog has really been an inspiration for me for the past year. I love to read your advice, and check out all the pretty things you talk about. I wish I could take part in a BlogShop, but It would probably won’t happen soon because I live in Tel Aviv and you don’t seem to get here (although they are totally gonna love you here :)
    In the meanwhile I like gazing at the photos, thinking that maybe sometime I get to take part of something like this, to give me a push with my blog and website.
    Have a great day Ya’ll. <3

    I started my blog on a ship and since then it has become the best way ever for my friends and family to keep up with me at sea. Unfortunately I don’t have mad blogging skills…and I could really use some!

  • 1467. Molly Jean  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 4:11 am

    I would love to attend blogshop because I would love to learn photoshop – I have a great Apple at home and software but because I work all the time, I have no time to learn how to use photoshop, etc. It really is sad because I have all the tools, but not the knowledge. I work at a paperie in North Carolina, where I design and sell stationery and wedding invitations, but have big dreams of starting my OWN stationery line/blog. I have a tumblr now but would like to have a better blog and know how to post images that I don’t put together in Publisher (eek, I know) on my work computer!

    Anyway, I let me take this opportunity to tell you how much I love your blog and how it has inspired me in so many ways in the last couple of years! You and Joy’s Creative, Inc. have made a real difference in the trajectory of my life in the last couple of years. Thanks, Bri, all the best!

I’ll be going from a small time administrative assistant at a bank’s HQ to an executive assistant to the owner of a an up and coming recording company worth hundreds of millions of dollars. I’d love to take people on the journey with me as a writer, a mom, a wife, and a blogger. That’s what I’m hoping to do with my next blog – and the opportunity to attend a blogshop would A) blow my friggin mind – I’ve been dying to go for over a year! and B) would truly give me the leg up I need to get my voice out there and heard.

  • 1513. Joanna L  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 6:19 am

    I would absolutely LOVE to come to blogshop! I am a graphic designer by trade and always have wanted to start a blog but didn’t know where to start! My dream job is being a stay at home Mom and continuing my passion for design by designing freelance. Getting a blog started now would definitely help get my feet on the ground and start to build my business so I can eventually “quit my day job” like you talked about a few posts ago! Oh and also, I am running Photoshop CS3 on my home computer, which is pretty much torture.

    Thank you so much for this giveaway! What an opportunity!

  • 1514. Meghan  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 6:20 am

    Whoa! I don’t even know where to begin. This blog is one of the few that I check every day – so wonderful! I have been DYING to attend Blogshop for the longest time, and when I saw you guys were coming to Atlanta in November, I FLIPPED! I’m a fine artist with a not-so-secret love for graphic design. A friend from college and I plan to open an art store in the next couple of years and I want to create a blog to help promote ourselves. Websites intimidate me big time!

    Keeping my fingers crossed!

  • 1515. Jessica DK  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 6:21 am

    Is it my lucky day or what?! All my fav blogs are doing amazing giveaways! I’d love to attend blogshop because I’m trying to start my own blog and the inspiration and design and everything that makes a blog great is just not happening for me! I use to admire and look up to celebrities but bloggers have become my admiration!

    I do have a blog: http://www.letyourstylespeak.com & have been recognized by local DC magazines in the past. So people recognize my talent, but I’d love to learn how to take my blog to the next level & really show people what I’m made of. I just don’t have the right tools, & being on a tight budget isn’t helping!

    Thanks for putting this giveaway together.

    I am a 5′ 0″ tall twenty-something who is passionate about fashion but disgruntled about the limited number of options that are available for us fashion-forward petite women! The goal of my blog (which will be launching in mid-October) is to create a valuable resource for women who share my frustrations and a community around the cause to help me approach designers about making petite versions of their lines! Cake is one of the best and most delicious things I can think of, and I think petite women should be able to wear the proverbial cake of the fashion world, too! Designlovefest was the first blog I started reading every single day, and Bri’s design aesthetic inspired me to start a beautiful blog of my own. I’ve spent my cash reserve for the project on branding and site design, but I’ve always wanted to attend Blogshop, and it would be a dream-come-true for me to learn some skills to make my blog a special, beautiful and inspiring place for petite women everywhere to call their own! Help petite women everywhere, and pick me! :) :) xoxo

  • 1531. Heather  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 6:45 am

    Such a great giveaway! I work in PR but I really want to start a freelance business, and building/ branding every aspect of it on my own is important to me. I have been waiting for your class to come back to my city, but for this deal I would gladly fly out for it!

  • 1532. Svetlana  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 6:47 am

    What a great opportunity! I am just a beginner in blogging but do realise how important it is and how helpful it can be for my new business. Would be so happy to get new knowledge and get inspired from you Bri and Angela and other students. Keeping all fingers I have crossed to win!

  • 1533. Samantha  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 6:48 am

    My goodness!! I would have been thrilled with just a blogshop giveaway; this is so intense but I love it! I am a college student that has been diligently awaiting a day that I can afford blogshop. I started my own design blog recently and have since learned a lot but have so much more to learn as well! Such a treasure! -Samantha

  • 1535. Brooke  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 6:54 am

    Bri, you rock! Way to have a killer giveaway. :)

    I’ve been blogging for years (justmarriedblog.wordpress.com), but I recently took a hiatus and am ready to get back into it. The only problem is I’m not sure how to focus my content or figure out my style now. I’d love a chance to work with you and the Blogshop team to work that out.

    Cheers!

  • 1536. anna  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 6:55 am

    Holy wow, that’s a lot of comments but it can’t hurt to enter right? This giveaway is amazing! Bre, your blog is my go to place for inspiration and I can’t imagine the amount of creativity and sunshine at blogshop! I want to give my blog a face lift because I am hopefully going to be going into my photography/event design full time soon. Blogshop sounds like a fantastic starting point to get my butt into gear. Plus my phone would look really cute in that gold case.

  • 1537. Marisa  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 6:56 am

    This giveaway is bonkers! I’d love to attend blogshop to take my skills to the next level. I have basic photoshop skills but feel blogshop would really help elevate these and help me hone my branding. Also, hanging out with fun blogging ladies!

  • 1538. JesiG  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 6:57 am

    Bri,
    I started reading your blog over a year ago when you were first starting the blog shops, I’ve seen your blog and your brand grow, which has been so inspiring. My husband and I own a portrait photography business in Alabama and reading your blog every morning is the way I start my day and get inspired! I have often dreamed of going to the blog shop classes but just couldn’t swing it (even when you came to Atlanta, GA which is only an hour and a half away)! My photography is very niche oriented because my specialty is that I do hair, makeup, and wardrobe styling at every session, and I would love to have a blog that shows current and future clients my sense of style, what inspires me and of course recent works. So for these reasons and more it would be AMAZING to win!!!!!!!

    Oh boy this would be amazing for me! I am an artist/textile designer slowly developing my blog and brand….like at turtle speed. I really struggle with what to do next with my blog and get lost in all the trends that I see out there. I really need something that will help me express what I want to put out in the world. I don’t have a hard time creating my artwork and designs because that is more of a natural creativity, but blogging and developing my brand is really an art in itself and I could really use the advice and techniques from blogshop. All the accessories are fantastic but I would give them all up just to attend Blogshop! Thanks for the opportunity!

I am a block printer and avid snail mailer (I run a postcard blog, 28cents.tumblr.com, that showcases my collection, in addition to a personal blog about block printing and writing). I would love to best show the world the amazingness of these simple ways of communication, in a snazzy modern styling. I have been dying to learn more than just cropping on Photoshop and to own a copy of my own. The other goodies would be serious icing on an already delicious cake!! Thanks for the opportunity.

I follow your blog to get inspiration + ideas, but would really like to go to a BLOGSHOP class to learn a little bit more one on one. {sort of, lol} I know you recently came to Dallas, and I wasnt able to go to this one, sooo hopefully for the next time ill be able to go.

  • 1574. Alice Ashe  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 7:36 am

    I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to attend Blogshop. I am a designer in Washington, DC and started a blog a few years ago to help me with some self promotion and because I was in desperate need of a creative outlet. But the blog (aliceashedesign.blogspot.com) needs some serious work. Blogshop would be an amazing learning experience and would give me a little push towards taking the plunge to freelance… my eventual goal! Plus, I’m really looking forward to delving into “Blog, Inc.!”

I love your use of videos in your blog so i would like to learn how i can incorporate them into mine, as well as to learn all the neat photoshop tricks. I know the BlogShop would be an awesome place for me to learn how to have as much fun as you do at work!

Why I want to win this giveaway? just to be able to attend one of your blogshop, and learn a lot from you on how to create, develop and market our own blog, in order to spread our ideas, creativity, messages, passions to people.
    Thanks again and keep going with your blog and projects ! xxx from France.

  • 1588. Kate  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 7:48 am

    First, I’m about to move to France for 10 months. I’m nuts about typography, and beautiful pictures, and I truly believe that what I need is to start an amazing blog that explores the do’s and dont’s of travel/fashion/and being “à l’étrangère” in general! Mishaps and happy accidents alike, my true desire has always been find a way to get people interested in what I have to share. I think creating a dialogue about international experiences can open peoples minds and inspire not only exploration but viewing our own environment with a different perspective. I love that your Blog experiments with viewing the ordinary in extraordinary ways and I want to create a similar atmosphere! I just know that Blogshop and this slew of goodies will be the greatest jumping off point I could possibly hope for!
    I liked on Facebook and Tweeted as well!!
    Thanks Bri!

Fingers crossed for that lovely box of goodies! Xoxo

    I am just begining blogging and I know mine looks so sad and boring. I would love the chance to really work on making it more eye catching :)

  • 1593. Cristina Marie  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 7:52 am

    Bri! I have been a fan of designlovefest since the moment I discovered it — it brings joy and a daily dose of inspiration to my mornings! You’ve inspired me to someday create my own blog to bring that happiness and inspiration to others.
    I’m currently an advertising and fashion marketing and management student at SCAD (loving every second of it), and only hours away from Atlanta. When I found out blogshop would be coming, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Thank you for it! :)

    I would love to go to Blogshop to learn a thing or two about Photoshop! It would help me with my job and I have always wanted to start blogging.

  • 1595. Abigail Bobo  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:02 am

    I’m a senior year photography student. I like to know the ins and outs of something before I get started, which is why I have postponed starting an art blog. I’m bad, I know…
    As a broke college student, all things in the giveaway would be an excellent boon to me as I begin launching my career this year as a photographer. I’d love to learn a great blog workflow from my favorite design blogger!
    Hugs!

  • 1596. Sophie  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:04 am

    I want to win this giveaway because I want the tools to take my blog to the next level. I want some blogging confidence! I need Photoshop and Blogshop badly!
    Fingers crossed!!

    {awesome giveaway dreams}
    Last night I had the most amazing dream – I was picked as the winner of this incredible giveaway. In my dream I had the opportunity to work with Bri + Angela at Blogshop where I learned how to strengthen my photoshop skills to better enhance all of my graphic work – especially my blog (in re-development), the blogs I manage, and then some . . .

    This is a Blog writers SOS, seriously! My husband Paul and I moved from a sleepy town in England 2 Yrs ago chasing the American dream.Unfortunately the dream wasn’t quite as I thought it would be! Corporate America was draining the life out of me. With long hours and numerous plane rides (I am terrified of flying- eek)life was all work and no play.
    Paul became seriously ill and ended up in Intensive Care,left unable to walk.Something had to change life was to short.
    Paul made a great recovery and learnt to walk again, and with every step he took we became closer to making a conscious decision to reevaluate life and gain the dream that we had left so many friends and families behind to realize. Our creative soles were being suffocated by life passing us by.
    This was the birth of Hestia & Bear.
    Hestia and Bear encompasses our passion for European style home ware. Our site will be both retail and blog centric. We have sought artists from all over the world to showcase their Luxury items. Some body once said to me “You cannot change the world but you change a few peoples world”.
    We are currently working with 5 interns to create a website and daily blog. The problem is technology has kind of left me behind! I love to write but my ability to showcase my ideas is limited. They all laugh at me!! I am a quick learner and have improved massively through this process.
    I want to be able to speak to them about the designs that they have created and be able to have creative control of the site,and make my own suggestions. Money is tight as we are self funded so all my money goes on packaging and supplies rather than self improvement.
    We love your site and would be so grateful for the opportunity to learn from you. Kindest Regards, Lizzie

  • 1604. Sarah  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:13 am

    designlovefest is one of my top favorite blogs that I go to every morning when I get into work! I think the work done here is amazing and awe inspiring. It would be an absolute and utter dream come true to win this contest as I have taken the plunge and am starting my own online dress boutique (socialdressshop.com) this fall. I have taught myself some coding and html and a little photoshop (from the free trials), but the blogshop workshop could be incredible! I will also have a personal blog attached to my shop and hope to implement more creativity and personality within that as well! I decided to finally open my own online boutique, as it has been my dream for as long as I can remember. I realized that if I do not stand up and create my own destiny, then I might live in complacency forever. Here is to hoping that all dreams can come true!

    Aspiring Artist and art, music and fashion aficionado looking to hone Photoshop skills — particularly for a new blog (in the works) that will feature contemporary Art/Artists, Art-inspired Fashion and “people I want to be.” I want my work to reflect my own personal aesthetic and creativity, and I think Blogshop gives students the ability to do that. Annnnd…I’ve been lusting over that Wacom tablet for way too long.

    Also, I’m your rS AC… Not Angela’s, though… Just Bri’s ;)

  • 1614. Diana V  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:31 am

    I would really love to win this package – I have a blog for my photography business but it’s kind of lackluster and I could really use some assistance in spicing it up. And good lord do I need that latest version of photoshop!! I’ve been using CS2 forever, embarrassingly enough…

  • 1615. Ali  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:31 am

    Ahh! This is so amazing! I’d love to go to blog shop as I’ve just started a blog with my boyfriend to promote our illustration business and this would really help us to make it more professional and sparkly. Fingers crossed hard on this one!!

  • 1617. Taylor M.  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:33 am

    What a dream this would be! I’ve finally hunkered down and started working diligently on my blog, but I’m still trying to figure out what I want it to be. The possibilities are endless (food, life, design, a bit of it all??). Blogshop would help point me in the right direction.

    Every time a new Blogshop location gets announced, I visit the site, review my finances, and then have to say to myself, “Next time.” I’m putting aside funds to try to go sometime next year, but to be able to go soon (this year!)… I’d be beside myself. Blogshop seems like it would be the perfect electric shock to my blog and my creativity. It creates a community that extends beyond the class and sends you away with inspiration and the means to keep you going while spreading the love you received in the class.

    Bri, you are so generous to share all the knowledge and experience that you have, and this giveaway is the icing on the cake. May whoever you pick being endlessly inspired and jumping-up-and-down happy. (I hope it might be me!)

  • 1624. Jess  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:43 am

    I started a blog in March, and I’m constantly trying to do little things to fancy it up a bit. Lately I’ve been feeling stuck with some of the bigger design stuff and really could use some inspiration and guidance. My readership is really picking up, and I feel that blogging has become a way of life for me instead of just a hobby. I would LOVE to attend blogshop and walk away with a headful of ideas.

    Thanks for this amazing giveaway; it’s practically the lottery and/or the best Christmas ever. xxx, j

    I have honestly been wanting to go to Blogshop ever since you have began this great skillshare workshop, especially when you brought the workshop to the midwest! I am right now a college student majoring in fashion merchandising and, unfortunately the program doesn’t offer any help to us with understanding media technology (which is now a huge aspect of the fashion world as you yourself have even shown). I have for the past few years tried my hand at the blogging world but the one thing that has been holding me back is not having the confidence to actually launch my blog. I feel if I go to Blogshop not only will I learn basic techniques, as well as, new ones but I will feel confident to launch my blog which has been a dream of mine for years!

  • 1633. kaela  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:55 am

    i’d loooovvvee to win! i want to pursue a career in design so this would be the perfect place to start!

  • 1634. Joanna Lynn  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:55 am

    I can no longer afford to go to art school, am in tons of debt because of it, and looking to start a business to get back on track. These products and the class would really help because I can’t afford Photoshop or a tablet right now and I think those are really essential for professional looking web design. I need to spruce up my blog presence, help! Amazing giveaway by the way, thanks for giving us all a chance to win so much sweet stuff!

  • 1635. Rita Garcia  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:56 am

    Where do I start?! I have been an uber fan of DesignLoveFest blog and have ALWAYS wanted to attend Blogshop. I’ve actually suggested Monterey, but SF will suffice!

    The reason I can’t attend is plain and simple, I can’t afford it! You can ask anyone around me (especially my boyfriend) and they will all agree that I give too much to others. I know this sounds self-praising, but in reality, I LOVE TO GIVE! I spent an entire year planning and designing my entire high school reunion! I even won “Most Philanthropic” during our survey! My boyfriend even said if I were to win money, I would end up spending it on family and friends! (But I guess he doesn’t mind too much because he gets a lot of that overage of my giving). Just to give you a little insight on the amount I have dedicated to others this year, here’s a little list: designed and planned my high school reunion; designed, planned, hosted my sister’s bridal shower; designed, planned, hosted my sister’s bachelorette; designed, planned my sister’s wedding; flew out to Hawaii to attend a friend’s wedding (of which I wasn’t going to even take a vacation!); helped design and paint posters for my friend’s 3 day Indian wedding; designed, printed and made my friend’s wedding invitations; host and plan all family parties; flew out to 4 bachelorettes/3 bridal showers for my dear friends; and most importantly, dedicated any/all time and efforts (and my heart) to my former and late boyfriend’s (of 6 years) family (of whom passed away last May, and really took a hold on me). You could even say, I finally developed my inspiration and happiness back after a year of being blue, amongst a whole lot of other knowledge and insight I gained through the entire process.

    On the end of design, I’m completely infatuated with it. On days I become frustrated, I look at beautiful art/design and it soothes me (or I eat a cookie!), but usually design really soothes and excites me. If I had the opportunity to start my own blog with the necessary tools, I know I could just do so well. Given that I make some time for myself and not for others!

    I guess that’s my case! I would be completely and ever-so grateful!

  • 1636. Tatjana  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 8:59 am

    I took the feet first+blogshop class back in April so im a major fan and I can’t tell you or anyone else how much it helped me. I went from being a girl who dreamt about doing the things I wanted but not knowing exactly how to take action to being a girl who has taken a lot of her visions and photographed them. It’s been an amazing 4 months. Now, I have this knowledge and skills and I have accomplished quite a bit but find myself still saying, “if I knew how to do this I could (fill in the blank).” I got a great refresher course that In just the one day of blogshop, however there is tons of content and ideas literally sitting on my hard drive just waiting to be used in a blog I’ve dreamt up. Blogshop, to me means being able to realize all my dreams of being able to put my visions out there to share and no longer having to say, “if only I knew how to do that…” I will say that feetfirst+blogshop was the best investment I ever made. It was an investment into my dreams and future and I would love the opportunity to take the rest of my visions and move forward. It would be such a special opportunity and if I had it in my budget, I would have already taken the full blogshop class- because I know what an awesome learning and inspirational experience it will be.

    Hi! I’ve been perusing your blog ever since I laid eyes on it. It’s part of my top 3 morning resources, the other two being Huffington Post and The Colbert Report. I would say it’s a well-rounded group, but I love your blog the most! Hands down. I saw your Blogshop sessions way back and was trying to rack my brain about how I could somehow manage room in my college budget to go to one of these. I’ve been blogging for a couple years now but I’m just stuck on how to make my blog stand out to the Seattle area, and I think a better knowledge of Photoshop and what it can bring to one’s blog will really help point me in the right direction. Merci beaucoup for this giveaway! Hope to see you in Seattle!

    I’ve been dying to purchase a tablet to add all the cute touches that I often find on blogs like yours!! I’ve had my blog for a little less than a year and I’m finding myself at a stand still. I am not sure out to change the lay out or content to really vamp it up, and get people excited about what I’m posting. I think that being able to attend a blogshop would really help me get inspired to try new things!

  • 1670. Sara  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 9:35 am

    I’d love to learn to hone my blog skills. I’ve kept a blog on and off for years now but it’s never stuck and I really think this would help my photography/design skills and make my blog better. Also I love your sense of design!

  • 1671. Michelle-Mee  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 9:36 am

    I have always wanted to go to Blogshop, but never had the funds. I’m a broke college student trying to scrape as many freelance jobs as I can to make some moolah while I am a full time student. Learning is something I can’t get enough of and to win this would be a dream come true, literally. This is such an insanely awesome giveaway, thanks for the opportunity.

  • 1672. katie  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 9:39 am

    oh my my my… I am not just saying this but I was literally just thinking how amazing it would be to have a chance to come to a BlogShop. I’m just in the process of launching a new photo business idea and blog is a pivotal part of the biz. I’m a work from home mom who would love some interaction with other creatives.

    Thank you for offering this massive giveaway, so amazing.

  • 1673. Anna  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 9:39 am

  • 1688. Jenny Rae  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:03 am

    I have been thinking about starting a lifestyle/DIY blog for a long time, but have always come up with reasons why it isn’t the right time. Winning this giveaway would give me the motivation I need to get over my fears and just get started.

  • 1689. Drea  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:06 am

    This is an absolutely amazing, generous giveaway! I’d love to attend a Blogshop one day. I love my blog and would like to devote more of my energy to making it a truer reflection of me. Thanks for sponsoring this and being such a lovely resource.

  • 1690. Lisa  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:08 am

    This is by far the most amazing giveaway ever!! I would love to get my hands on the full version of photoshop and learn how to use it to its full potential at blogshop! It would be a dream to make my wedding style blog everything I want it to be with the skills I would learn :) Thanks for the amazing giveaway, Bri!

  • 1691. Sarah  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:10 am

    This is the most wonderful giveaway!! I have been running all of the social media outlets for student life at my university, including working as executive design editor for our student magazine, and while I’ve had success with Twitter, Facebook, etc. I haven’t been able to start a proper blog. I have some photoshop/indesign abilities, but I know how much it would mean to all the students at my university if I could maintain a really great blog to showcase and remember the best years of their lives!! I was crushed when I couldn’t attend the recent blogshop in Toronto and I would love to get another chance!!

    PS. your blog is beautiful, i read it every day for inspiration! So thank you!

  • 1692. Britt  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:11 am

    Wow! What a response to this giveaway! I just want to learn learn learn. I’ve fiddled with photoshop for a while but I need some guidance. It would be amazing to figure out how to translate what’s in my head onto paper!

  • 1693. Alexa  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:12 am

    This is SO cool of you! I would love this giveaway because I am a fairly new graphic designer to the industry. I work part time and do freelance part time. I would LOVE to become full time freelance. I am starting to dive into the social media world and am very inspired by your style, blog and the way you handle business. I would love to continue to learn more by taking Blogshop. Thanks SO Much!

  • 1694. Krizianid Vazquez Velazquez  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:13 am

    I’m from the beautiful and tropical island of Puerto Rico, here the blogging movement is rising but the society isn’t educated to see blogging as a full-time job. I have a little blog, where i show photos of my trips with my hubby, and DIY’s projects. But I would really want to give it a new twist and a prettier look. I don’t have any of these gadgets, it’s like Christmas in August! Learning how to use photoshop at it’s fullest, and having all the other things in my hands would be super awesome!!!

    I’ve already liked and commented on designlovefest and blogshop page in fb & following both in twitter.

    PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE CHOOSE ME!!!! hahaha

  • 1695. Emily Q  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:14 am

  • 1696. Kristin A.  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:14 am

    I would love to come to blogshop to refine my design skills. I can write with the best of them, but creating a beautiful site is a skill I’d like to master. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • 1697. Cate  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:15 am

    I could write forever about why I want to go to blogshop, but mainly, I just know it would allow me to express my creativity and transform my blog in ways I would never be able to on my own. I love my blog now, but feel like it needs that extra kick in the pants. Attending blogshop would help make my blog what I know it can be!

  • 1698. Dalyn  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:15 am

    I could really use the inspiration to get my blog going again–especially since I really need the creative outlet as I start teaching again!

  • 1699. christine  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:17 am

    So exciting! My blog is currently more of a personal blog, but I love the way it has grown over the years & I would love to see it develop even more with the help of Blogshop & all of these other fun gifts.

  • 1700. Jenna  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:17 am

    I would LOVE to attend blogshop for many reasons. One of which would be to help develop the blog that I write for Raspberry Kids and gain more confidence in it. As well as develop my overall eye and design skills. I have a friend who attended and I still never get tired of hearing how incredible it was.

  • 1701. Alyssa  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:18 am

    I am a journalism student graduating this spring and I have a love for design. I would love to enhance my skills at blogshop!! This is the best giveaway ever!

    What an amazing giveaway – thank you! I’m a strategist who just moved to NYC from LA (one more item off the bucket list!) and my personal website / portfolio is currently in the design phase. I hope that it will give me a greater voice in the design community and help me land my dream job in NYC. All these amazing prizes would help :)

  • 1707. Lizzie D  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:27 am

    This is incredible! Love this blog so much! I am a freelance graphic designer who is going to business school in the fall. I have a passion for design and seeing blogs such as this and oh joy and design sponge has inspired me to pursue this dream of mine. Going to blogshop would truly be the opportunity of a lifetime. So excited to see this prize go to a winner!!! Maybe…just maybe it could be me!!!

    After taking the leap to cut back my salon schedule to part time and start following my creative dreams of blogging about what I love and writing haircutting education I have fallen into a place of endless to do lists and lack of knowledge in the technology field. My thirst for sharing my inspiration keeps growing yet im drowning in trying to kickstart different avenues of sharing. Since finding out about blogshop I have followed carefully and started saving so one day I could attend. Either way I am truly inspired by your work and thankful that such a great opportunity exists!
    Warmest Regards,

  • 1711. Morgan  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:35 am

    this giveaway is INSANE! I’d love to be considered for Blogshop because I’ve wanted to create a professional-looking personal blog for such a long time! I’m a natural journalist, so the words come easily, but layouts and photography baffles me to no end. I wish I could attend the Melbourne session, but I’m crossing my fingers that you’ll come to the Pacific Northwest sometime soon!

  • 1712. Anonymous  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:36 am

    …because other than being able to write some-what decently, I have no blog/design experience and this giveaway would give me just the jump start I need…AND my horroscope said this would be a good day! so bring it, universe!

  • 1713. Carsi  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:37 am

  • 1714. Andrea  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:38 am

    I would die for the chance to win and attend a blog shop class. I have been a devoted fan for almost a year now to designlovefest, have fallen in love with Bri, and the whole lot has given me the inspiration to finally begin my own blog and venture into beginning my freelance design career. I really think a blog shop class would be a huge creative booster, not to mention a fabulous networking chance!!

  • 1715. Lemon Drop Love  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:38 am

    Wow this would be a dream boat win for me!!! I am new at blogging and I love design, so having the tools and know-how would be amazing and so exciting for me. I am always trying to get into one of the blogshops and they are inevitably sold out. Thank you for this giveaway. And over half of the goodies are on my wish list. AAAHHH! I hope I win :) My fingers and toes are crossed!

    My husband is a Jazz music major who loves to teach people his passion. Everyday I get to see him leave to work with a smile on his face, whistling a sweet tune…that guy is my inspiration. Attending a BlogShop will give me the confidence to tell the world all the tips & tricks I’ve learned these past 10yrs as a make up artist…like using clear brow wax as a lipstick primer…good stuff huh?! My sad little blog needs some BlogShop lovin. I want to be the ‘one’ lucky human and win this giveaway so I can whistle sweet tunes while sharing my passion!

    I feed on beauty, observation and the magic of collaboration. Currently I am on a mindful journey to reach my highest self and share my adventure and findings along the way! Introducing “Work” a journal(blog) about the practice of the creative process and the power of observation. Each day I find magic in the things that life provides. My motto is to live freely and, well I would love to have BlogShop be a highlight on my journey.

    I have been trying to go to blogshop for a couple of years now. I am a student and am broke (naturally). I even tried to intern at blogshop just to have a way in to learn. I would be thrilled to learn from you girls. I started a blog during my travels abroad and am trying to transition it into something more and need help and the skill sets to do so. Thank you!

  • 1723. kristen  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:54 am

    I attended Blogshop L.A. recently and it gave me the skills I (desperately) needed to make my blog look better and especially my photography. I’ve been telling everyone I know to save their money and go, it’s really worth it!

    If I were to win, I’d gift the prize to my friend Jodi McKee, who is an amazing photographer and new mama. For her to have the opportunity to go and learn photoshop with you ladies is something she’s wanted for a long time and it would thrill me to be able to give this to her.

  • 1724. Elizabeth  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:54 am

    I am dying over this giveaway–amazing! I know photoshop basics but would love to learn all the tips and tricks necessary to take my layouts to the next level. Winning this would be awesome!

  • 1725. Nataliya  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 10:57 am

    moments before reading this post I was in tears on the phone with my husband. Sobbing for the 100th time, all about how I can’t go to my full-time office job anymore, how I don’t have time to work on my tiny blog, how I NEED change or I will go crazy. This morning I spent hours researching courses at the local college. So, yes, I would LOVE to come to blogshop and learn and get inspired and change my life for the better. The other prizes would just be the cherry on top.

    And if I win this it will be my sign.

    Thanks for the vent.

    AGH! This is such a crazy-awesome giveaway! I learned the basics of Photoshop through friends in school, but a lot of the things I’ve learned were self-taught. I KNOW I could benefit from Blogshop–I’m sure there are much quicker ways to edit and create graphics. I’m in love with every single item included in the giveaway!!

    I just blogged about this giveaway: http://hellopasadya.blogspot.com/2012/08/design-love-fest-giveaway.html

    Oh wow how awesome would it be to win?

    I have a blog… have had one for a few years… but have never been able to narrow down a direction or focus. That has always been one of my problems! I also don’t know as much as I’d like to about design and websites but MAN would I love to learn.

    I’m going through a REALLY hard transition in my life that I never thought I would have to face… and I feel like my life as I know it is basically ending. The opportunity to challenge myself with something new and exciting and to have a new love to focus on would be amazing :)

    I’ll tweet about it! Twitter: petiteastre

    Thank you <3

Your blog truly inspires me. My sister, Steph & I currently have a blog that I started 2 months ago so it is fairly new, but needs some work. THANKS for this totally awesome mind-blowing giveaway! :) xx Chris

  • 1738. Michelle  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 11:22 am

    I would like to come to Blogshop to learn some new skills so I can help others spice up their blogs as well! I just redesigned my own blog, but there is always something new to learn. Like my home, my blog design is never finished!

  • 1739. Tracy  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 11:23 am

    This is the best giveaway ever. I would love to spruce up my blog, I have lots of ideas, but not necessarily the knowledge to bring them to fruition. Blogshop would be so much fun! It’s hard to choose which items of this giveaway I would appreciate most. Fingers crossed, as this would be the greatest birthday present! I want to sit in a room with a bunch of creatives and be inspired. I am a stay at home mom and would love to reward myself with some me time.

    What an incredible giveaway! I have a degree in journalism but never paid much attention to design in school. I started a blog a while back, and I’m currently working on building my freelance writing and editing business. Winning this would give me the tools I desperately need to get my business off the ground and add some sparkle to my blog.

    Lovely giveaway! Fantastic gifts. I started a lifestyle blog recently, and I could def use some advices + help w Photoshop! Fun fun fun!

    I would love to go to blogshop. I wanted to attend the Dallas one you just had but it filled up before I could try and get into it. I would be so thankful to win this. I have been wanting to start my blog for the last year or so. I haven’t been able to step out and make the jump because to me it is about the quality of pictures and posts/content. I don’t know photoshop that well and have CS3. So I would love to have CS6 plus learn how to use it and make my photos look great at blogshop. The blogINC. would also be a great book to have. My cousin and I are starting a blog together and try to learn photoshop and photo styling together. We would be blown away if we won this giveaway. I love your work and all you do. Your uniqueness and boldness to step out and do what you love. I really would love to have every item in the giveaway and just win. Who wouldn’t? I know I’m just another person that commented in the large amount of people but I could be picked out of a large total. Who knows… Anything can happen.

    Thank you so much for even making a giveaway and taking them time to create a great class and blog even when you have a busy schedule. Thanks for making it a place where people can come learn, believe, get courage, confidence and hope.

    This has to be one of the best competitions I have seen! I would love the chance to attend blogshop! I have a blog already but would love to learn ways to make it more personable to my readers and to incorporate different ideas to make the content relevant to a wider range of people. I would love the chance to meet the creative genius behind blogshop and designlovefest, and to start to learn how you have created such an incredible business. My fingers are crossed!

    I’m entering (and would love to win) because I’ve just recently decided to help spruce up the design/branding of the Rape Crisis Center where I am a volunteer Medical Advocate. I’m hoping that will help me get comfortable enough with the whole online presence aspect to finally create my own blog along the way.

    And I already liked both DLF & Blogshop on facebook. :)

    I would love to go to Blogshop to learn how to spruce up my blog and how to use the Wacom Tablet!

  • 1751. Sara  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 11:43 am

    This is an amazing giveaway, and who wouldn’t want help with their blog?! I always long to get my comment count up, and this would be an amazing step in that direction.

    This is the most bomb diggity giveaway EVER! I’d love to attend blogfest so that I can jazz up my current blog – there’s only so much a gal can learn on her own through youTube, pinterest, internet etc… Plus it would be amazeballs to put all those tools to good use and then share my knowledge that I learn to help other bloggers our there!! Thanks again!! – Nikki at Bedazzles After Dark

    I also “like” Blogshop and Designlovefest on Facebook! <3

  • 1754. Al Kennedy  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 11:52 am

    This giveaway is so wonderful! I am a junior in college, studying visual communications & aspiring to be a graphic designer/blogger (I attribute much of my choice in career path to you, Bri. I’ve been a long time reader & you dazzled me from the start!) I’ve wanted to attend blogshop for quite some time, but just can’t seem to pinch my pennies to that extent. As the real world continues to creep up with a frightening speed, I would LOVE this opportunity to really learn how to take the many ideas in my mind for my (rather sad) blog & develop them to their full potential!

  • 1755. Ana Paula B  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 11:53 am

    The best Giveaway I’ve ever seen!!! I want to create a blog.. I only have a tumblr and I love to share the things I like and what i love to do… THANKS!

    I “like” Blogshop on facebook!

    Also I “like” Designlovefest on facebook!

  • 1758. Ana Paula B  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 11:54 am

    And yes… I tweet about it!

  • 1759. Molly  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    I’m too proud to beg. Except when there’s a leather pencil case up for grabs. In which case, I absolutely LOSE MY MIND.

    PLEASE GOD LET ME WIN THE LEATHER PENCIL CASE.

    I’d be the proudest, smuggest person at Blogshop — just sashaying in with my LEATHER PENCIL CASE, acting like it ain’t no thing, but really inside bursting with pride. The kind of pride that only comes with possession of a LEATHER PENCIL CASE.

    DAMN RIGHT THIS IS MY LEATHER PENCIL CASE. Y’all want to borrow a pencil? Let me see what I have here in MY LEATHER PENCIL CASE.

    I would LOVE to win this contest! I’ve been dreaming of going to blogshop since last year, but I’m a college student so I really can’t afford a spot in the class (or the Adobe Suite).

    I’ve had my blog for three years now, but I really want to start adding more original content and I think your class will give me a lot of pointers on how to use graphics, etc. to stand out in such a competitive market.

    I also love all of the other gifts that are included in the giveaway, including the tablet, laptop and phone cases, and Blog Inc. book. I bookmarked Joy’s book when you instagramed it a few days ago and can’t wait to read it!!!

    I used to be a rabid Live Journal user, I would write every day. Long posts and small posts, sometimes deep and sometimes funny. I don’t know what happened, but I just stopped. I miss blogging, I know that it would be for my professional artistic career, but I just don’t know how to make it work again. This event would help me jump-start that part of my life again. It would help get my art, photography, and letterpress out into the world.

  • 1762. Taylor Willis  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 12:13 pm

    Oh my goodness, isn’t this a marvy giveaway!!! I’d cherish it all! A designers dream really. Yes, this would certainly help me spruce up my blog and rock this potential designer’s world! Love!

  • 1763. bernay  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    such an amazing giveaway! I’ve been trying to improve my blog for ages, but I’m at such a loss to do so. Attending blogshop would be a huge step in the right direction.

  • 1764. Shannon  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 12:16 pm

    Wow this is such an amazing giveaway and one that I desperately need to win. I have a blog that’s in need of some love and as well as I am trying to start a business that I will need a blog/website for. So excited for a chance even if its one out of thousands to win everything I would need to help me with beginning my business. I tweeted, liked on facebook and am entering here. Totally going to be thinking very positive thoughts till next Tuesday! Thanks for the having this contest. Totally Rad and exciting!!

  • 1765. Kathy K.  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    I’ve been wanting to start a design/inspiration blog for the longest time!! Blogshop would be the perfect ‘push’ to get me going in this overwhelming world of blogging. And to be thought by one of the coolest designer chicas and get some pretty things in addition… SCORE! pick meeee!!

  • 1766. Elisa  |  August 22nd, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    I want to come because I want to acquire some of the awesome skills and knowledge you guys have to impart! It looks fantastic, unmissable and totally amazing – who wouldn’t want to go? Any blog could use some of that :-)
