    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.

    tracy! says:

    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!

    Anonymous says:

    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 🙂

    annie says:

    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!

    anne says:

    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!

    aubry. says:

    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!

    Lucie says:

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

    Christina says:

    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!

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

    Holly says:

    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.

    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.

    Amy says:

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

    Chelsea says:

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

    Kristin says:

    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!

    Megan Reed says:

    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!

    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 🙂

    Meagen says:

    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 🙂

    Dot says:

    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!

    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!

    Alex says:

    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!

    Erin says:

    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!

    Erin says:

    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!

    Katie Day says:

    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*

    Tea says:

    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)

    Silky Hart says:

    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!!!

    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.

    Ali says:

    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

    Allison says:

    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.

    Tiff Reed says:

    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:)

    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!

    Cady says:

    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!!

    Que says:

    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**

    tricia says:

    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!

    Karen A. says:

    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!

    Regan says:

    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!

    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!!!

    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!

    Pinky says:

    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!!!

    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!

    Monica says:

    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.

    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!

    Sara C. says:

    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!

    Xixia says:

    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!

    I’m always looking for tips and tricks to improve my blog! The design, style and voice of your blog is great, and I strive to learn from the best 😉

    Kaitlyn says:

    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.

    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!!)

    Lizzy says:

    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)

    Stephanie T. says:

    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!

    Jo Meyers says:

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

    need to do blogshop
    sister’s site needs some fixin
    plus scarf is tres cute

    Christa says:

    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!

    Natasha says:

    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!

    Kikee says:

    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!

    juliet says:

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    erin s. says:

    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!

    Krista McPhee says:

    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!!

    Hannah B says:

    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.

    kat says:

    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!

    Stephanie says:

    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!

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

    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!

    Keely Reyes says:

    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!

    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 🙂

    Katya says:

    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.

    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

    Maren says:

    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!

    Kayleigh says:

    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.

    Annabel P. says:

    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!! 😀
    Thank you, you wonderful woman you! 🙂
    *praying to win*
    xoxo

    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!

    Julia says:

    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!

    Lauren G says:

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

    Erin M. says:

    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!

    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!)

    meeka says:

    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!

    Michelle says:

    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!

    madeleine says:

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

    Tanya says:

    Would love to hang out with the super cool blogshop gals – learning and being inspired!

    Andrea Howe says:

    This an amazingly generous giveaway! I want to win a ticket to Blogshop to help me take my photoshop design skills to the next level and so that I don’t have to ask my husband for PS help anymore!

    Elizabeth says:

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

    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. 🙂

    Ann says:

    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?

    Elizabeth V. says:

    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!

    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.

    Wren says:

    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;).

    Esther Hahn says:

    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!

    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 🙂

    Haley says:

    Woo doggie! I have been wanting to jump on the blog train (I love food, architecture, and everyday pretties) but have zero skills to get started. This would be incredible, to say the very least.

    justine says:

    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.

    Mallory says:

    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!

    Pam says:

    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!

    Migdalia says:

    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*

    Sophie says:

    Amazing giveaway, Bri.

    Been toying with some ideas for a blog for a while now, but want to do it properly: this would be a great way to get started!

    Natalie Wise says:

    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!

    Samantha says:

    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.

    lydia says:

    I would love, love, love with extra hearts around the edges to win this giveaway! I’ve been dying to go to a blogshop since the very beginning and with this giveaway I would be looking fabulous while I attended!

    Heather says:

    I would love to come to blogshop to learn some new techniques to make my blog great. I’ve had a blog for a while and would like to grow that site! xo

    Hannah b says:

    I would L-O-V-E to win this contest because I have been trying to find time to learn PhotoShop for FOREVER, dying to learn some awesome design techniques from some of the coolest gals around, and I have been wanting to start a blog for a long while now–the DC area needs as many quality blogs as they can get!  I’ve been daydreaming about going to BlogShop FOREVER!

    Katie P. says:

    Oh my oh my oh my! This is so awesome! I desperately need to help boost my oh-so-unsavvy Photoshop skills. Microsoft Paint just ain’t cutting it! I’ve been saving my pennies to attend Blogshop someday, so I would love to win! 🙂

    vania says:

    i’d love a chance to attend blogshop! i’ve been wanting to go since it began. i just started my first blog and have been designing freelance on the side throughout college. now i’m working full time but would love to turn my blog into my career 🙂

    Kendall says:

    I would LOVE the chance to attend BlogShop because I really believe in the unity of the classes and the level of education, no matter how girly it looks, I know the takeaway is so much greater.

    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!

    Andrea Howe says:

    I tweeted: “i want to win this @designlovefest giveaway! especially the copy of @photoshop CS6 http://bit.ly/RzJaGH

    Jenna says:

    I’d love to take the blogshop video class and snag that CS6! I know the basics but want to know how to make video!

    Brandy says:

    Wow what a great prize pack, I have been eagerly awaiting to see if Vancouver, Canada is one of your Blogstops. It looks like such a fun class and I would love to meet other bloggers in my area. My blog is my after work creative outlet and I wish I had more time to dedicate to it and grow it. Taking courses keeps me inspired and connected to the blogging world. Thanks Bri for giving me daily inspiration and hopefully I can take your course someday soon.

    Anna @ IHOD says:

    Well this is quite possibly the most exciting giveaway I have ever entered!
    Why I want to win?

    Julie says:

    I would love to see what your blogshop is all about and could definitely use help with some sprucing up on my own blog (www.julieedwardsdesigns.com). And, of course the other offerings aren’t too shabby either!

    Cynthia says:

    It would be a dream come true to be able to attend Blogshop. I’m currently in the job search process, and while I have loads of marketing and digital publishing (blog publishing) experience, I don’t know how to really use photoshop and I’m finding myself unable to apply for a ton of things that I should be able to. 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!!!!!!!!

    Lindsay H says:

    Awesome giveaway! I started a local finds blog that is lacking in the design dept! I would love to learn all your tips & tricks for making blogs look amazing!

    Michelle says:

    Holy moly, this is rad. I would love to come to blogshop to learn tips and tricks of photoshop to be able to get my blog posts out faster.

    Monica N says:

    Holy cow what an amazing giveaway! I would love love love to get my hands on photoshop, been wanting it for years but never had the funds. And a trip to blogshop, it doesn’t get any sweeter! 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.

    Mailinh says:

    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!!! 🙂

    melissa says:

    i would love, love, love to win because i’ve wanted to begin a blog of my own but don’t know where to start. i’ve been an avid blog follower for years, AND am a designer in my day job but have no clue about writing. i’d love to make it happen!

    Omigosh – I can’t even put into words how much or why I want to attend Blogshop. 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.

    Molly Alone says:

    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!

    xx Molly

    Natalie Wise says:

    Tweeted! Thanks! @fashionatalie

    Trinh M. says:

    I’ve wanted to go to Blogshop since I first found out about it, but never saw one for Minneapolis. I would love to go to Blogshop so I can grow as a designer and blogger!

    cianne says:

    Bri! this is the best giveaway EVER! I would love love looooove to win this because I have been wanting to start a blog for YEARS and I know that this workshop would inspire me to finally just do it! Reading designlovefest is my daily happy time and learning your tricks of the trade would totally rock my socks!

    crossing my fingers!!!! xo

    Bri, SERIOUSLY?! My heart is literally beating faster at the thought of winning this!

    I’ve wanted to come to Blogshop for a while, but it’s out of my budget at the moment. (I actually applied to be an intern for the upcoming LA one just to be part of it!) I’m self-taught in Photoshop and would love a little more direction and some of those “secrets” that will take my blog to the next level. Thanks for generously hosting this giveaway! xo

    joyce says:

    Bucketlist:
    -dive the great barier reef
    -fly and jump from plane above Kruger Park South Afrika
    -cook and eat all Julia Childs recepies
    -meet and learn from the blogshop-babes
    -sail from Amsterdam to Cannes with my love
    -have a full moon party anywhere
    -make a differance in this world
    -make new list after checked all

    Amanda says:

    I have been eyeing blogshops for over a year now. Waiting for one to come to me (in Denver) and also searching plane tickets to go to one. I am an online marketer/blogger who would love the opportunity to not only work on what I do, but also to meet other talented bloggers and connect. I freelance on the side of my career and am always looking to improve.

    Margaret says:

    I’m actually starting a new business and would love to learn the ins and outs of Photoshop (did you know you’re killing us with this CS6 prize?!). This would be an absolute dream to win, especially a chance at attending blogshop *squeal*. HUGE thanks for this generous giveaway.

    Irene says:

    What a wonderful giveaway! I would love love LOVE to win a spot on blogshop! I have been oogling at posts about the blogshop experience and have been dying to go. I want to start a lifestyle blog, but I want to get the mood and the branding right! Fingers crossed!

    Kivi says:

    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!

    Carrie says:

    Amazing giveaway. I have a (rather unkempt) blog that would greatly benefit from all of the above!

    Cecilia says:

    I would love, LOVE to go to the BlogShop in SF. I’ve been doing photography for years now as my personal hobby and would really love to start a lovely little blog and turn my passion into something I can really use. Since I got a lil bun in the oven, it’s a bit hard to fit it into the budget.
    Thank you and good luck to all!

    Neha says:

    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 ♥

    Elle says:

    I am just starting my first blog! I don’t know all the little details (or even the grande ones, which seemingly everyone else does) of what makes a good and beautiful website. This would be incredible for getting the creative and curious juices flowing! Thank you for the chance!

    Geneviève says:

    Wow! Best giveaway ever!
    I would love to attend Blogshop to: 1. meet new people 2. enhance my blog and would give me the little kick I need to write more 3. explore new ways to be creative.
    Fingers crossed!

    Naomi A says:

    I just started my blog this summer and I have a ton to learn! I’d die and go to heaven if I won!

    Kat says:

    i love love LOVE blogshop! i think it’s such a great class and a great idea! i would love to win this giveaway because although i’ve been dying to attend a blogshop, i 1.) can’t really afford it (i’m not an amazing saver like you!), and 2.) i don’t even OWN photoshop which is EXTREMELY embarrassing for me, especially since i’m a photo fanatic and dream of opening up my own photography business one day. taking this class (preferably the one in DC where I live!) would be an absolute dream, and would help me not only revamp my blog (and give me the desire to blog again, been feeling kind of uninspired lately), but it would also get me motivated to “quit my day job” and pursue my dream of being a photographer one day. or at least making the jump to full-time freelance:)

    Katy says:

    This is such a great giveaway!! I would LOVE to come to a Blogshop. I am just barely getting started and I could use all the help I can get! My background and career is in fashion design and I often find it difficult to translate my creativity and aesthetic electronically, plus I need a jolt of inspiration and self-belief to really dive in to what I really want to do!

    Kim Boswell says:

    This give away is BEYOND INCREDIBLE! If I were to win it would literally be LIFE CHANGING! I would have the best tools (those give away items are amazing) and gain so much knowledge and experience if I were able to attend BlogShop! Life changing. All I can say is that – I HOPE I WIN!!!

    Ana says:

    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!

    Andrea Nap says:

    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!

    miss kelly says:

    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!

    Jenny says:

    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.

    Mullica says:

    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!

    Beth Caster says:

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

    Jess says:

    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!

    Jillian says:

    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!

    Alyssa says:

    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!

    Andrea Cenon says:

    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!

    Kelcey says:

    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.

    Katie says:

    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!

    Jodi says:

    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!

    Celeste says:

    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.

    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!

    Whitney says:

    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!

    jam says:

    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*

    Amy says:

    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!

    Caitlin says:

    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!

    Rhianna says:

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)

    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!
    Pankita

    Desperately want to spice up my blog a bit.It also would help significantly for my day job! I always have the time, just not the money! (story of my life) I want to learn from the best of the best. Thanks for even offering this. Someone is going to be a very lucky guy or gal!

    Jenny says:

    HOLY. COW. WOW. WHOA. SERIOUSLY? I CAN’T GET OVER IT. What a giveaway!!!!! All my limbs are crossed that I win.

    Marie B says:

    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!

    Samantha says:

    I would LOVE to win!I have been getting ideas for the past year and hope to start my blog back up and refreshed soon.

    Lilli says:

    OMG this is the mother of all giveaways! I would love to learn more tricks of the trade and I’ve been wanting to attend blogshop but i’m waiting for one to come my way. *Keeping my fingers crossed* Totally tweeting about this right now!

    Amy says:

    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!

    Ciara Bird says:

    This giveaway is a dream! I’m a young designer that’s about to take the leap into full-time freelance and a chance to go to blogshop + all the amazing extras would be DIVINE! I would love to learn all I can from other creatives, best of luck to everyone entering!! I’m crossing my fingers!

    April says:

    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!!!

    Brianna W says:

    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!

    Naomi says:

    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!

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!

    I would love to go to blogshop and take my website to the next level! I want to win this so bad I even tweeted about it (and I never do that)

    caroline says:

    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.

    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

    I’m a recent grad getting ready to move into the world of freelance design & hoping that a new blog will help build my brand! Thank you such a wonderful opportunity :]

    Claudia says:

    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.

    Beth says:

    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. 🙂

    Dale says:

    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!

    Meghan says:

    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

    Christine F says:

    Trying to spruce up my baby blog! So inspired by all of your work and can’t imagine a better way to improve my own work than to attend Blogshop!

    shannon says:

    OH ME OH MY! Ive been dreaming of BLOGSHOP for over a year. Im a graphic designer and blog writer for The Bloom Forum and would love take my writing and design skills to the next level to expand our exposure. Wishing on a star…

    Monica says:

    I would love to win a chance to go to blogshop because who wouldn’t want to learn and and exciting ways to update their blog. I’m sure I would be able to use these skills in other places besides my blog!

    Molly says:

    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.

    Jenny says:

    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!!

    Chloe says:

    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!

    Ash says:

    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!!

    elissa says:

    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!!

    Maycie says:

    I have been dreaming of coming to a Blogshop class. I’d love to learn ways to make my blog a prettier and happier place for people.

    Pauline says:

    Hi, I’m gonna started my blog in october and I REALLY need some help from you guys!!! So much to learn. I’m french and I live in Montréal and it will be really nice to win and come to see you ! Merci beaucoup ! Bonne journée.

    Liz Riden says:

    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!

    Bre Richison says:

    Yay for best giveaway ever! I would love to win to help me really pump up my blog and also build a portfolio. My dream is to work with a great design, fashion, or lifestyle magazine and all these would help greatly! I’ve also always wanted to go to a blogshop class and get to learn firsthand from my favorite blogger 🙂 thank you thank you!

    Ahh so exciting! I started a blog a few months ago and loving it, but would love to expand and learn from the pro (that’s you!). Thanks for all the inspiration Bri!

    Bree McCool says:

    Oh dear! I would love to win this amazing prize package! I do have a website that needs some sprucing that only Blogshop can provide 🙂 I love, love, love meshing music, photography, film and blogs and I want to take the collaboration to the next level. 🙂 And all the tips/tricks I’ll learn will be be so fun to teach my fellow team mates in this design world!

    Riann says:

    Perfection! I’m just starting my blog. I need all the help I can scrape off the bottom of anyone who’s willing to help me shoe….or served up on a pristine platter like this. My passion for visual communication fills my mind with endless ideas. This is just what I need to fulfill the dream in my heart. I would love this huge opportunity.

    Jes says:

    I’ve been blogging for a while, but I would love to learn to give my content that extra umph. I also hope to up my readership and connect with other bloggers… but isn’t that what we all want? 🙂

    Kat Torres says:

    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! 🙂

    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!

    Loli says:

    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!

    my heart literally stopped when i saw this giveaway. i’m a designer + a fairly new blogger and still feel like i have a whole lot to learn. blogshop seems to be where it’s at as far as invaluable knowledge and fun goes. i’m going to be holding my breath all the way to tuesday for this one!

    Nicx says:

    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!

    bobbi says:

    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! 😀

    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!

    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!

    Pilar Moreno says:

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

    Molly says:

    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 🙂

    Tori says:

    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!

    Pauline says:

    Carlie says:

    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!!!

    sel says:

    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.

    Rebecca says:

    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!!!!

    Latrina says:

    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!

    Lea says:

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

    Jordan says:

    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!!

    Jessica Salinas says:

    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.

    Stacy says:

    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!

    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!

    Eli says:

    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.

    Brandy says:

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

    Tori says:

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

    Erin Bassett says:

    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!

    Paige K. says:

    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 🙂

    Tiffany says:

    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!

    elizabeth says:

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

    Wendy says:

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

    Libby says:

    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?!

    Melody Rich says:

    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!

    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.

    Andrea says:

    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.

    Kate says:

    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!

    Leisha Ramirez says:

    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

    Jessica says:

    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!

    Al says:

    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.

    Wendy says:

    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!

    Taylor says:

    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….!

    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

    Emily says:

    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!

    megan says:

    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!

    Judy P says:

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

    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!!

    Joy says:

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

    Megan says:

    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!

    Melissa says:

    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/)

    Rocio says:

    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!

    Kinanti Sachri says:

    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!

    Andrea says:

    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!

    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…’ !

    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

    Katie says:

    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

    Mel says:

    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!

    Sarah says:

    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.

    Kari says:

    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!

    Kim says:

    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!

    Kristin says:

    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!

    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!

    Yehsong says:

    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!

    Joani says:

    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!

    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.

    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

    Trisha says:

    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.

    Mandy DeTurk says:

    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.

    Dani says:

    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!

    Trissta says:

    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

    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!

    Julie says:

    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!

    Susan says:

    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

    Megan says:

    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!

    Mallory says:

    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?

    Annie says:

    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!

    Jen Brown says:

    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!

    Lauren says:

    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! 🙂

    Julie says:

    Also tweeted @JulipMade !

    Alison says:

    I recently started my fashion and lifestyle blog as a creative outlet and form of personal expression. I have wanted to attend blogshop for a long time, but I’ve never been able to afford it. I hope I can win this wonderful opportunity to really develop my blog into something wonderful! (tweeted: https://twitter.com/alilwatts) – Alison { aliology.com }

    ArianeK says:

    omigosh so many entries!!! i would love to come to blogshop because i *just* ie. this morning relaunched my personal blog upgrade and it needs some sprucing up! also will be starting my own crafty biz this fall and can use all the skillz and help i can get!

    Lauren says:

    I tweeted too. I am on Twitter as @sankhalina

    Ry Pepper says:

    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!

    Amanda says:

    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!

    Tracy says:

    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.

    Dani says:

    Just tweeted about the giveaway @positivepresent AND I’m going to mention it in “Links I Love” on Friday on http://www.PositivelyPresent.com. Thanks again for the chance to win!

    Erin says:

    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!

    palma says:

    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

    Amulya says:

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

    Kim says:

    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.

    Lauren says:

    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

    Hanna says:

    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!

    Kim O says:

    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!

    Hannah says:

    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.

    Brandie says:

    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!

    Emma Gray says:

    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!

    Kayley says:

    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.

    Priscilla says:

    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. ; )

    Brianna MB says:

    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!

    Alison says:

    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!

    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 😀

    tianna says:

    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.

    ag. says:

    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!

    Natasha says:

    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!

    Nancy says:

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

    Sam says:

    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

    Bria says:

    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!!

    Erica says:

    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!!!!

    Jessica says:

    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

    angie says:

    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.

    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!!!

    Kelsey J says:

    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!

    Leah says:

    Wow! I would love to win this and attend Blogshop to sharpen my photoshop skills! Fingers crossed.

    Piia says:

    Amazing opportunity and gifts,I’d love to win,because one can always learn something new and useful!

    Shannon says:

    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!

    Danielle says:

    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!

    Marissa says:

    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!

    Nicole LaViolette says:

    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!!

    Jess says:

    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.

    Joanna Park says:

    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!

    L.C. says:

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

    Alice Gibbs says:

    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

    Jason says:

    I want to win this for my wife so I can send her to Blogshop.

    Carissa says:

    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!

    Rin says:

    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.

    Jessica Deacon says:

    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!!

    April says:

    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!

    Briana says:

    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!

    Suzanna S says:

    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!!!

    Dara Denney says:

    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!

    Catherine says:

    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!

    jen says:

    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!!!

    Catharine says:

    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!

    Mai says:

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

    Jen says:

    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!

    Nicole Maria says:

    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

    tish tosh says:

    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!

    Merritt says:

    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!

    katrina says:

    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.

    Rachel says:

    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!

    chloe says:

    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!!!

    Siena Sausser says:

    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!

    Carolyn says:

    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!

    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.

    Lyndie says:

    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!

    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.

    Kelsey says:

    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!

    carissa shapiro says:

    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!!

    Taja says:

    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!

    lauren says:

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

    Rachèle says:

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

    harley says:

    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!

    Emily says:

    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!

    Erin says:

    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!

    holly says:

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

    percentblog says:

    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!

    Kelly says:

    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!

    eli miranda says:

    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)!!

    katie hart says:

    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! 🙂

    Rachel P :) says:

    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!

    Krystle says:

    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.

    Christina says:

    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! 🙂

    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

    Kimberly says:

    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!

    Desi says:

    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.

    alyssa says:

    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.

    Kirsten says:

    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

    Nicole Dao says:

    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.

    katie hart says:

    also, just tweeted!! @adaywithkate

    Ashley says:

    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!

    Jana Miller says:

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

    Whitney says:

    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!

    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!

    yuri says:

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

    say that 3x fast!

    Meredith M says:

    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!

    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!
    Chase

    allison says:

    the mother of all giveaways!

    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!

    Katelyn says:

    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!

    Desiree says:

    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.

    Jenn says:

    Looks like blogshop would be fantastic!

    Kerry says:

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

    Kersey says:

    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!

    Emily says:

    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!!!

    emily says:

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

    Clio says:

    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

    Vanessa says:

    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!

    lisa bradley says:

    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!

    Laura says:

    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!

    Gigi Baith says:

    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

    Aubrey says:

    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!

    MicheleB says:

    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 😉

    Jessica says:

    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!

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

    Megan Lipke Kenney says:

    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!

    Shaina says:

    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 😀

    Jasmina says:

    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!

    Amy says:

    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 🙂

    Lindsay says:

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

    Heylee Heep says:

    wow, what a giveaway! i am in the process of starting my own business, so all of these things would be so beneficial – especially blogshop!
    xo,
    heylee

    Sara Lucero says:

    My GOODNESS there are a lot of entries!!! DAYUM 🙂
    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!
    xo
    Sara Lucero (that rhymes, pretty cool, no?)

    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

    Helena says:

    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 🙂

    kara says:

    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

    Diana Vel says:

    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.

    Tweeted as well! (via @halfasleepshop)

    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.

    Stephanie says:

    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!! 🙂

    Juhee says:

    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! 😀

    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!

    XO,
    Amy

    lucy says:

    the ideas and creativity and dreams are there–i am ready for the tools to put them into to action. new to blogging — ready to be inspired!

    Ravyn says:

    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!

    Alina says:

    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.

    Gudny says:

    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! 🙂

    Megan says:

    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!

    Taylor Kampa says:

    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!

    Kate Smith says:

    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!!

    Kelci says:

    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.

    Ashley Oster says:

    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!

    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.

    Brooke says:

    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.

    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…

    Lauren says:

    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!

    liz says:

    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.

    em says:

    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!

    Amy Wing says:

    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!

    Becky! says:

    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.

    lauren says:

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

    Cee says:

    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!

    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.

    Ansley Prior says:

    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.

    Amanda says:

    what an amazing giveaway! I’d love to be able to attend and learn how to better my blog, I feel like there is a style I’m trying to achieve but I just can’t get there on my own. Thank you for this opportunity!!

    Diana says:

    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!

    Court says:

    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.

    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!

    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 🙂

    Lindsay says:

    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!

    Anna says:

    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!

    Jordi says:

    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.

    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! 🙂

    Rhy says:

    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”

    Tori says:

    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!

    josephine says:

    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.

    Morgan says:

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

    Anna says:

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

    Laura says:

    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!

    Genna says:

    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.

    Grace says:

    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.

    Kat Skull says:

    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!

    Kylie says:

    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.

    Fox Courage says:

    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

    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

    Adrienne says:

    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….

    Lauren says:

    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!

    Josie says:

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!!!

    Missy says:

    I want to win so that I can start a graphic design blog. What an amazing giveaway!

    Katie LC says:

    I’ve always wanted to attend blogshop! Great idea for a giveaway to help out some broke graduate students 😉

    Liz says:

    This is AMAZING, Thank you Bri! I would love to attend Blogshop to learn how to incorporate more personal blogging techniques into the branding and creative direction behind my company’s blog. Especially Photoshop tips and tricks, like how to use it as video editing software!

    Jenny says:

    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!)

    Patricia says:

    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!

    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 ;).

    Tiffany says:

    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

    Bernadette says:

    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!

    whoorl says:

    I want to attend Blogshop because it’s the awesome-est of awesome. (This is the greatest giveaway in the history of giveaways. HOLY MOLY.)

    and I tweeted 🙂 https://twitter.com/c_leighbrown

    SO EXCITED! Can’t wait for the results!!

    Jamy says:

    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.

    Aimee says:

    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!

    Elyse says:

    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!

    zoë says:

    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)

    erin says:

    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!!

    sarah says:

    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!

    ashley says:

    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!

    Cassidy says:

    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!

    Crystal says:

    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!

    Jamie says:

    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!

    Sarah says:

    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

    Elizabeth G. says:

    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!

    Courtney says:

    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!

    Lindsay says:

    I need to perfect my PS to take my blog to the next level!

    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!!

    Shay Lianna says:

    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,

    Savannah says:

    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! 😀

    Stacy says:

    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 :).

    Gabriela says:

    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.

    Jackie says:

    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!

    sara says:

    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 🙂

    flobee says:

    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.

    Daria says:

    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!

    Kara says:

    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

    🙂

    Natalie Shapiro says:

    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 🙂

    Caroline says:

    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!!

    Rylie says:

    BEST. THING. EVER! I love everything on this list.
    I have a blog that would benefit greatly from this win. haha. 🙂

    Kimberly says:

    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!

    NPW says:

    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!

    kirsten says:

    trying to start a blog, this is awesome!

    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!

    jessica says:

    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!

    Kayla Hood says:

    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

    Amy says:

    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.

    Christen says:

    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 🙂

    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!

    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!

    Kylie says:

    To spruce up my own blog! I’ve been dying to learn these skills!

    McKenna says:

    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.)

    Lori says:

    Amazing giveaway – each item itself is fab!

    Sarah.A says:

    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.

    Eunice says:

    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!

    Jessica says:

    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!

    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!

    Keely says:

    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!

    Jenny B says:

    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!

    Amy B says:

    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.

    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!

    Jillian says:

    I have dreams of making the freelance jump some day and I know a blogshop would help the transition a ton!!!! <3

    Amber Lavoie says:

    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*

    Courtney says:

    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! 🙂

    Hannah K says:

    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.

    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

    Caitlin says:

    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!

    Jennifer Otto says:

    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!

    Sarah Moore says:

    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!

    Nace says:

    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!!

    Jessica says:

    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.

    Shelby Rosson says:

    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

    Lulu says:

    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.

    Rachel says:

    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 :/

    Nora Griffin says:

    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!

    Kristen says:

    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.

    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

    Andrea says:

    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

    Rachel B says:

    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!

    Hannah says:

    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!

    Laura Scullin says:

    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.

    Lauren says:

    This is amazing! I would love to attend blogshop to brush up my Photoshop skills! The goodies are beautiful!

    nicole b. says:

    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.

    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 🙂

    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!

    Anna says:

    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!

    Chelsea says:

    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!

    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 !!!

    Amy says:

    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

    Marie says:

    If I had all of these goodies I would start a blog. 🙂

    MB says:

    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!

    Sara says:

    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 :))

    ari says:

    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 😉

    Paola says:

    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.

    Em the Gem says:

    I want to win this giveaway like whoa. Not only have I been dying to go to Blogshop but that Tablet! Must have!

    Sara B says:

    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!

    Allie says:

    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 😉

    Kelsey says:

    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 😀

    Maryam says:

    Why? Because I’m just starting a personal lifestyle blog and could use the help!

    Shannon says:

    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!

    Ashleigh says:

    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.

    Sarah White says:

    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!

    LOVE everything about this giveway! I need all the help I can get when it comes to blogging 😉

    Bri says:

    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!

    Jennifer A says:

    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.

    Jacqueline says:

    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!

    Heather says:

    What a sweet giveaway!

    Emily Hart says:

    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! 🙂

    Meg Sonnenberg says:

    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)

    kimberly says:

    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!

    Lucía says:

    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

    Sabrina says:

    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!

    Carmel says:

    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.

    I would love, love, LOVE a spot for Blogshop to help me bring my humble little blog up to some seriously sleek design levels! I’d love to learn all the tips and tricks you guys share and to spend some time in community with other super lovely creative people! I can always be reached at my email above!

    Amanda says:

    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.

    kelsie rae says:

    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!

    Michaela Rae says:

    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.

    Jessie says:

    Would love to attend blogshop. Can never learn enough about any of the Adobe products!

    Emily says:

    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!

    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!

    Nicole says:

    Have been dreaming about going to blogshop ever since stumbling upon designlovefest.

    Katalina says:

    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

    Anne says:

    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!

    Lauren says:

    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.

    Jamie says:

    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!!

    Kyle Patrick says:

    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.

    Julia says:

    gosh that’s a pretty unique goodiebag! 😀 i would love to visit blogshop as i just recently started blogging and would love to learn everything!

    Taylor Rae says:

    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!

    jessica says:

    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!

    Emma says:

    This is AMAZING!! I love everything, especially photoshop!! Mine is so outdated from when I was last in school 🙂

    leah m says:

    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

    Maria Anne says:

    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!

    gabrielle says:

    I would love to win this amazing giveaway! you are an incredible designer and a great inspiration to other designers out there!

    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!!

    Karina says:

    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!

    Amy Powell says:

    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!

    whitney says:

    Whaaa! This is the craziest giveaway I’ve ever seen! I would LOVE to win a golden ticket to Blogshop because I have a baby-blog that I’m always working hard on 🙂 I dream about hanging out with you gals and learning your tips and tricks. (and getting one of your famous goodie bags!) xxo -Whitney

    Brianna says:

    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 🙂

    Dara says:

    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.

    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!
    Shauna

    Halle says:

    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!

    Amy says:

    After a few months of some pretty intense personal challenges, winning this package would be awesome. Thanks for the opportunity!

    Nellie says:

    I would love to attend, this is simply amazing.

    Alison says:

    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.

    Jillian says:

    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!

    Lea Frazier says:

    My blog and low end design skills could definitely use some added spark. This is such a great giveaway! Fingers crossed.

    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!

    Amanda says:

    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!

    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!

    Megan S. says:

    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!

    Lauren says:

    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! 🙂

    Stephanie says:

    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!

    brynn says:

    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!

    Jen Lake says:

    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!

    Melanie says:

    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!

    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!

    Sarah says:

    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!

    Laina says:

    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!!

    kelsey says:

    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!)

    Jennifer says:

    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!

    Erin D. says:

    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!!

    Trish Kehaulani says:

    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!

    kelly says:

    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

    Courtnee says:

    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!

    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

    Heather JL says:

    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!

    Jinnie says:

    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!

    Kayla Campbell says:

    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.

    Angela says:

    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.

    Lauren says:

    I tweeted as well (@awildtonic)! 🙂

    Louise says:

    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!

    amy says:

    Wowzers! What a great giveaway! I’m building my freelance business and would love some new goodies to help me out!

    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.

    Meredith says:

    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!

    Hannahbelle says:

    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!

    Kory Woodard says:

    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! 🙂

    Isra says:

    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 🙂

    abby says:

    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 😉

    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

    Paige says:

    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!

    Frances says:

    I still need tons of help with my blog! I’m sure that the class would help with inspiration.

    kate says:

    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!

    Martha C. says:

    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!

    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.

    Oh yeah I tweeted @redbonegirl97.

    sara kristen says:

    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

    Jasmine says:

    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

    Carolyn says:

    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.

    Patricia says:

    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

    Amber B says:

    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!!

    Megan says:

    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!

    Katy Mashburn says:

    I have toyed with the idea of starting a blog and would love the chance to learn what I can. Awesome giveaway!

    kaitlyn says:

    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!

    Monique says:

    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!

    Kristen says:

    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!!

    Eveline says:

    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!

    Drew says:

    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: [email protected]

    Haley says:

    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!

    Allise says:

    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!

    Heather says:

    I want to start a blog about my newfound love of camping, and this would be the perfect thing to get me started!

    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.

    Sara says:

    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!

    Erika says:

    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!

    Mandy says:

    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!

    Lucy Remitz says:

    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?

    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.

    kelly says:

    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!

    lindsay says:

    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.

    Sam says:

    oo la la! attend a blogshop?! Yes please! This would so take my blog to the next level! eee! I hope I win!

    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.

    Seren says:

    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!

    Anna says:

    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!

    claudia says:

    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!

    Kat Williams says:

    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 🙂

    christina says:

    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!!!

    Kerry Grolle says:

    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.

    Lillian Alves says:

    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!

    mckenna says:

    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. 😀
    Tweeted as well.
    Meow!

    megan says:

    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.

    Lisa says:

    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!

    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!

    Kat says:

    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 🙂

    Plus It is just an amazing giveaway!!! CS6 *squeeee*

    Reilly says:

    wow! i would love to attend blogshop to spruce up my personal and professional design work & blogs! it would be amazing to meet & learn with a group of creative bloggers. photoshop cs6 + the rest of the treats are just icing on the cake- what an amazing giveaway! thanks blogshop sponsors!

    Fava says:

    Awesome giveaway. I’m drooling, but not too much cause that’s gross. I’m just starting out with a photography/blog website and would love a leg up!

    Lauren says:

    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!!!!!

    Helen says:

    Would love to attend blogshop to help with my endeavors to start a creative blog with my twin sister 🙂 Thanks!

    McCall says:

    I want to come to blogshop to learn as much as possible to get the blog off the ground for my non-profit Fresh Chefs Society, we are working in Austin Texas to empower youth transitioning out of foster care with the skills necessary to take charge of their eating lifestyle and knowledge of the culinary arts through meaningful educational experiences with community chefs and restaurants. We have a good website – http://www.freshchefssociety.org but need to engage our community with a blog!

    Jess says:

    What a giveaway, Bri!
    I would love to join a blog shop class because as a fine artist, my design skills are lacking could alway use a little help. The class is brilliant and it would be quite a joy to win all of the goodies.

    Thanks for the chance!

    Jess

    Wow. I have to enter this contest even though I know my luck is running thin!
    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.

    Ana says:

    Would love love love all these amaze tools! xoxo love designlove fest!

    This giveaway is seriously too good to be true!

    I would love to go to Blogshop because I have learned almost everything I can by myself and Blogshop would be an amazing opportunity to learn from experts and take Little Luck Tree to the next level.

    Plus, then I could blog about it. They look like SO much fun!

    xo, Shannon

    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 🙂

    Emily O says:

    This is crazy awesome!! I’m just so overwhelmed with everything that I want to accomplish and do with my blog, my photography, my style… that most of the time I don’t even know where to start, so I just… don’t. This would be such an inspiring chance to stop making excuses and get to work!

    Tasha says:

    Sooo Dope… I am currently working a 8-5 interior design job and am starting to freelance on the side… working on my website as we speak. This would be a big push in the right direction.

    Thanks for the opp! 🙂

    Lorin says:

    HOLY WOW! What an awesome giveaway! I have been wanting to attend a Blogshop class for quite a while but I haven’t been able to afford it.

    Rachel says:

    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!

    Kristie says:

    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! 🙂

    Dani Eggman says:

    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! 🙂

    carine u says:

    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! 🙂

    menucha says:

    I would love to come. my blog was a big fail and i was wondering how to actually use it to increase income…

    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!!

    julia says:

    I would LOVE to spruce up the ‘ol blog and not only would blogshop be a blast, it would be great to update my photoshop skill set… oh, and the goodies are pretty rad too!

    I have been dreaming of attending Blogshop for ever!
    It would be great for my blog to learn all of the amazing tips and tricks that make your blog so gorgeous!! Cont me in!!! Can you see me jumping with excitement?! 🙂

    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.

    Gaby says:

    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

    lauren says:

    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!

    meghan says:

    Stephanie says:

    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!

    Aleta says:

    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))

    Maria says:

    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!

    loren says:

    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!

    Sharon Tan says:

    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!

    Kerri says:

    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!

    Andrea says:

    Wow! What a prize package! Beautiful materials.

    Elizabeth says:

    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!! 🙂

    Thea says:

    Like WHOA! THIS is EXCITING!!! I’ve been looking for an opportunity to give my poor lifeless blog the creative kick-start it desperately needs — in enters BLOGSHOP! To have the chance to meet & learn from the best of the BEST would be a dream come true. *hugs*

    Jessica says:

    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!!

    Morgan says:

    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!

    Annie says:

    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.

    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!

    Erin says:

    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.

    Sophie says:

    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.

    Amanda Handleson says:

    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!

    Tracy Osborn says:

    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!

    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!

    Aileen says:

    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!!

    Iris Vank says:

    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!!)

    Sue says:

    I would completely love to win this giveway because I have a blog and it would be awesome to learn from blogshop to make it more personal and nice-looking !

    JenLynn says:

    I am currently trying to change my career path and move more towards graphic design. I’m enrolled in classes now but Blogshop would help me learn so much more.

    nichole says:

    What a divine giveaway! I just went on my own (!) and my blog could certainly use some lovin’.

    Taylor says:

    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!

    Trena says:

    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).

    PS I also tweeted this giveaway! https://twitter.com/Trena_Lynn/status/238009124389023744

    I would love to go to Blogshop because I really want to improve my photo shop skills for my baby blog & soon to be etsy shop! This helps, but I’ll still be pinching pennies for a session in case I don’t win 🙂

    Kristin B says:

    Holy guacamole! This is like Christmas and birthdays and trips to Disneyland all mixed together. I bow down to you, Santa Bri! 😀
    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. 🙂

    Lara says:

    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!

    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.

    Anni says:

    I have been dreaming of coming to blogshop since they started! I have my own blog but would love to just learn more about the creative world from such stylish individuals 🙂 Such an awesome giveaway! (Crossing my fingers!!)

    Lynette Rivest says:

    Looking to start a blog and found some inspiration here!

    Meridith says:

    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.

    Katie says:

    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!

    EQmakeup says:

    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

    Christina says:

    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!

    Christine says:

    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

    Anja says:

    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…

    Lindsay-Jean says:

    Wow! I would like to come to blogshop to spruce up my neglected blog!

    Michelle says:

    I want to win this @designlovefest giveaway! Especially the colorful tabs. Ok… so maybe I actually really want to win the Adobe CS6 and the blogshop. Just stumbled across this page a few days ago and been coming back everyday (love the simplicity of it).
