today we are giving away 5 spots to our next online blogshop on june 7-8th. if you have already signed up or want to purchase a spot, you will be refunded if you win! i love looking at the student’s cute desk setups that they post on instagram (see here) while they are learning our photoshop material. and remember we are open to INTERNATIONAL and to ALL COMPUTERS now!


do you want to make your blog & online presence look awesome? over a two day period, you can watch us guide you through all the photoshop lessons we teach and you’ll have time to rewind and practice from your very own house. we started this because we weren’t able to travel to every city or country and also wanted to offer a less expensive option for people who couldn’t fly to blogshop in person. compare the classes below…



pups learning too…


a tip: if you are taking our online workshop, it’s easiest if you use a 2nd computer or tablet to watch us talk while you practice on your own posts & follow along.


and we always recommend a wacom tablet! (i use this one in my office, but this one is more affordable and works great for beginners!)


thanks for sharing your photos on instagram. i often repost them, so make sure to hashtag #blogshopathome if you wanna share your experience!

    Sina says:

    I am SOOOOOO excited for this opportunity! I need a definite refresher!!!

    I am co-author of a blog, and I think the (online) course would totally help me/us out and get me/us into the (blogging) swing of things! It would also help make our blog stand out from others out there!

    Thank you So much! xoxo

    Olivia Boyd says:

    I would LOVE to take a peak inside your brain and expand my photoshop knowledge. I have a cute little fashion blog that is in desperate need of revamp. It just is missing something! I know I’d be able to add that missing something after learning all you have to teach on photoshop.

    Rachel B says:

    I’m always looking for ways to improve my blog and taking a class on it has always been a goal of mine! Right now I’ve really been trying to design a cooler layout, but constantly am getting stuck, by taking this class this could hopefully help me to finish all the way!

    I have a small business and I would absolutely love an opportunity to learn from you ladies how to make gorgeous images to make the site look so much better! (Lord knows I need some help with my images…) I’ve been dying to attend one of your classes but at the moment every penny I have is being put into the business, so winning this would mean the absolute world to me. 🙂

    Beatriz says:

    Since I discovered DESIGN LOVE FEST, I started have interest in this blogs world!
    My friends and I want to create a blog but we don’t know a lot of photoshop, HTML, how to improve our blog, etc.
    We love photography, interior design, architecture, web design and we are studying product design at school.
    We want to have fun with the blog in our free time!
    Thank you for this opportunity! 😀

    Amanda says:

    Hi! I would LOVE to take your online class! I have my own food blog and it has been such an incredible outlet for me to express myself and share my fun family recipes with my friends. I’d love to be able to spruce up my photos and some of the details on my site!

    Sheena says:

    i started up my blog a few months ago but now i’m looking to improve it and not just be a blog people just flick through! i’ve always been in love with minimalism and it would be amazing to find my own blogging style with this class and define it with the skills and lessons i can learn from this experience! x

    Lauren says:

    OH! I’m a blogger and expat currently living in Germany and would therefore LOVE to take the Blogshop class online. I truly love all things design and have really tried to learn/teach myself as I go. It would be really neat to learn from experienced designers, especially in a realm that is so applicable for me.

    Hannah says:

    I was so excited when you first launched Blogshop online! I wasn’t sure I’d ever be able to attend an in-person class but the idea of taking the at-home version is right up my alley!
    I would definitely use my blogshop skills to add to my existing knowledge of photoshop with the future of my new custom print, hand-lettering and design shop. I am currently getting ready for an August 2014 launch and I would love to have some new tips & tricks under my belt! Thank you for sharing your talents and offering such a great opportunity 🙂


    lesley says:

    i have recently opened an etsy shop and thought i should do a blog to go along with it – but i am clueless on the process as well as the time management aspect to work a full time job, run a business AND blog (with a husband and two cats to care for and remember not to ignore). this would be perfect.

    vee says:

    I am a filmmaker and I would love to improve my Photoshop skills to make better visual presentations…It is a game-changer to be have these skills so I am holding thumbs!
    Thank you for creating such a great course! xxx

    Emily H says:

    I’m taking this year to expand my horizon and learn new skills while I look for ways to break away from my very academic, very science focused career. I would love to increase my photoshop knowledge and curate an online portfolio.

    Pepa Cobos says:

    Blogshop is just exactly what I need to make my blog scale to the next level. To the infinity and beyond!!!!

    Elizabeth says:

    The lessons would come in handy for making my new online shop look more professional.

    HB says:

    I haven’t taken the next step to even have an online presence as of yet… I would use this opportunity to expand my now very meager website and turn it into a partial portfolio and blog piece.

    Mallory says:

    Planning like mad for the launch of my blog, and soaking up all the skills I can in the midst of it. This class will help with the lot of photos of travels I have to spice up!

    Lindsay says:

    I would use it to grow in new ways, so I can market and share the manifesto of the mission trip camp I run better and better.

    Alecia says:

    I would use it to help kickstart my online business this year!

    Meghan says:

    Mar says:

    I would love to learn about layouts and tips to make my blog look more professional!

    Nicola Jones says:

    I have been putting off really concentrating on my blog for the last year due to lack of confidence. I just need a push to feel I could be brave enough. Hopefully Blogshop would help me!

    Maureen says:

    I am a blogger and DESPERATELY need to learn how to improve my pictures. I want to learn to make a series of pictures into a gif and how to crop them to the right size. I hope I win!!!!

    Because I never really learned photoshop in design school!

    karly marie says:

    Starting the transition from hand-lettering as a hobby to a side business, and would love to start on the right foot with the marketing. BlogShop would be perfect for that!

    9lasgow says:

    Always interesting to see how others approach PhotoShop. I have some decent skills already, just curious to know how a blogger such as yourself uses it. One can learn a lot just my observing and there’s always something new to learn. I’m especially curious about touching up photos!

    Katiana says:

    I want to start a blog as I start my post-grad life and a class like this would give me a confidence boost!

    Jessica says:

    I’ve just started working at an Amsterdam based start-up fashion brand that creates fairly made leather bags and accessories. As a product manager I keep in touch on a daily basis with our fair trade producers in India.

    We have chosen not to work with investors, as we have a vision to change the world one bag at a time and we want to stick to that. Regardless of the commercial vision of an investor. This also means that there is a limited budget and we can’t afford a graphic designer in our team (yet), nor a graphic design course.

    As I’m all over graphic design, am inspired on a daily basis by my Pinterest feed, am ambitious to learn more than Product Management and have tons of ideas which I can’t bring to the computer screen as I’m a total Photoshop illiterate, I would love it if I would get the opportunity to join a BLOGSHOP class.

    I already join a regular bootcamp and boxing bootcamp multiple times a week, so Photoshop bootcamp… Here I come!

    beth says:

    I’m in the middle of creating my very first blog! Only about 5 years after I said I was going to…. but better late than never, right?? Would love to take the blogshop course.

    Xandra ★ says:

    I am a blogger who recently invested in Photoshop, and I love toodling around with it. I haven’t found an easy way to learn, though, so for now it’s looking up YouTube videos every time I want to learn how to do something – not the most efficient or fabulous method!

    Michelle Tan says:

    I’m a lawyer and craft junkie and would like to up my Photoshop skill game to get my small business on the road!

    wow! id love to win this! i have a small business and a relatively new blog so it will be so useful and helpful to learn how to develop my photoshop skills and learn to be a better blogger & business woman! thanks for the opportunity!

    Amanda Blait says:

    What?!? I want to do this training so bad but haven’t been able to afford it. My friend and I are launching a new blog and this would be so, very helpful. #veryvery

    I would love to be chosen to take one of your blogshop classes because I just started blogging a couple of months ago and even though I am learning so much already, I would love to be able to make my page look more like me. I feel like this would be the perfect opportunity to learn more and make my blog look better!

    Wendy Norman says:

    I would use my new skills to help me build a site/blog for the relaunch of my photography business. 🙂

    I am a photoshop newb and would love to learn the basics ins and outs so that I could make my music blog that I write with my two besties, This Is Our Jam, that much more fun to look at and listen to.

    In particular, I’d love to spice up our graphics for our “If You Like” feature: http://www.thisisourjamdc.com/search/label/if%20you%20like

    Aley says:

    Oh my! I would love to win as the photoshop on my blog currently involves a lot of google and you tube tutorials!

    Emily says:

    I built my blog and website, and am always looking for ways to improve what is a very basic base. I have some photoshop skills, but really need to take things to the next level for my blog and my business. I’ve been desperately wanting to take blogshop ever since it started but haven’t been able to afford it yet!
    This would be so awesome!!
    Thanks 🙂

    Sam says:

    By day I’m a scientist, but by night I’m a textile/ lifestyle blogger! This would be a great opportunity to spend some time picking up Photoshop skills to further my hobby, hell it might even make my graphs prettier!

    What an amazing giveaway! I have been waiting for Blogshop to coming to Washington, DC so I can attend… But I would gladly take the course at home too. I am a Graphic Designer, and would love to have a better website to show off my work and my skills!

    Iztchel Iannantuono says:

    I am a small business owner and want to start a small online store and blog. This would be perfect to help me get my business to the next level!!!!

    I would love love love to win this prize! I have a degree in graphic design but the course was very print focused. I have a blog and am hoping to grow it further now that I’m finished college. Fingers crossed!

    Lucy says:

    I’m from the UK, and don’t get a chance to go to in-person courses based in the US, so I would love the opportunity to take an online class and really take my blog to the next level. Being taught by such talented individuals would be a dream come true and I’m always looking for opportunities to better my skills, so this would be invaluable. Thank you for this opportunity.

    Katrin Klink says:

    I’m a blogger from Germany and celebrating today my 1000st post! I have to admit that I’m pretty fit in photoshop, but what I’d LOVE to learn is about the fun part, the lightheartedness and personality you can feel everywhere at designlovefest. So I’d love to get all the inspiration from the online blogshop – that would be pury luxury and would definitely help me to get the next step in branding and promoting my blog!

    Sharon says:

    I would use my blogshop skills to improve my blog and produce better graphics for my maps!

    Brianna says:

    I am not a blogger but would be interested in trying it out. I’m looking to find a creative outlet. I am currently a teacher and would like to change careers. I think this would be a good way to build skills that will enable me to do that.

    Dale T says:

    I need to brush up on my photoshop and tablet skills so I can improve at work and make my blog stand out more!

    yehsong says:

    I would love to learn more about photoshop because I dabbled in it but would love to explore it further and get further into more artistic spaces as I’m exploring future careers!

    Rossana says:

    I’m a blogger who would LOVE to have cooler layered graphic/photos… and I would love to have more training doing it in Photoshop!

    Nhi says:

    I want to start a blog, but don’t know the first thing about graphics, images, how the layout should look!

    Natalie says:

    My birthday is June 9th, and blogshop would be the best gift ever! This year is going to be a year of change for me and what better way than investing in my business by taking blogshop!! I’m just starting out with my small business, and I know blopshop would be the hot ticket that i need to get things booming. I use photoshop regularly but i know I don’t know all of the tricks to it. And i know im not nearly using everything i could be in photoshop! Thanks!

    sofia says:

    Salutations! I am currently living in Chile and trying to learn photoshop and blogging skills so I can grow as a young artist and budding entrepreneur, but there aren’t any classes that showcase the inspiring and playful side of these skills. Blogshop would be the perfect way to learn!

    I would love to use the skills obtained at blogshop to create more engaging, eye-catching content and really create a community I am passionate about. I have the drive and the determination – just not the refined photoshopping skills! Blogshop would be a dream come true.

    Olivia M. says:

    I’ve learned a lot about Photoshop through trial and error, but I think there are things that I could be doing a lot quicker and would love to learn! In addition, I’m kind of learning about “branding myself” and I think this would really help. But I’m a poor grad student so winning this would be kind of perfect!

    Duyen says:

    I would use my new skills to help improve a blog I share with one of my friends from high school. We started it in college when we were in different states and have been keeping up with it even after we graduated!

    Cortney Pritchard says:

    I wear all kinds of hats at my job & would love to sharpen my photoshop skills to make my job easier & A LOT better looking!

    Liana says:

    This is an awesome giveaway!

    Before I had to relocate due to expat, my last job wanted to send me to an event if it was even in Atlanta (which is now! 🙁 unfortunately) they wanted to send me to focus on creating and managing the departments blog.

    Now that I am unemployed due to expat, I’d like to utilize it to flourish my new blog and start up my small business and share my paintings with the world!

    Liana, From No to Go Blog

    jmillewitz says:

    I’m a blogger who wants to improve my rudimentary Photoshop skills. I would love an opportunity to participate in Blogshop!

    I have been itching to take this course, but as a designer who works in Illustrator everyday (photoshop on occasion), it’s tough to justify the money for a blog that’s not turning any profits, but perhaps with some sharper photoshop skills I could. Thanks again for the great giveaway!


    codi b says:

    Would love to take this class again! I just graduated and run a small business and would LOVE to really develop our online presence! I loved the class the first time I took it and think the summer is THE perfect time to brush up!

    Stef says:

    I would like to win the online blogshop for my best friend Cri…we have a blog together and I would love her to become really skilled in photoshop, so she will able to translate in a picture all the beautiful things she has in mind 😉 this would be for sure the perfect gift and a wonderful opportunity to improve her skills for her work and for our little blog … Thanks!

    I am pretty good at Photoshop but could definitely use this course to brush up on some things and improve my skills. I recently started blogging and need to learn more about creating layouts and creating good photographs for online. Would love to take this course! 🙂

    Samantha says:

    I would love to take blogshop because I work in content marketing, and I think upping my photoshop skills through that particular lens would make me more marketable.

    Emily M says:

    I am the owner of a small online shop and would use my new skills to improve the pictures of my products!

    Lindsey says:

    I’m a Children’s Director at a nonprofit, and invest a lot of time into updating our web presence, social media, newsletters for parents, etc. I’m self-taught and would love to use Blogshop to become better and more efficient with photoshop so I can spend more time on the kids!

    Kirti says:

    As a medical student, I dream of getting a creative education! Photoshop is one of many steps towards a shiny new blog.

    Anayara says:

    I’m learning photography and in need of learning how to improve and showcase my photos in an portfolio. Love your style and your pictures, and would love to learn with you. I live in Spain, so I need it to be online.

I’d really like to begin the blog with a plan and confidence that I can create beautiful posts each time. I have been hoping to sign up each month but alas, I haven’t been able to afford it yet! Words couldn’t describe how grateful I would be for the opportunity to learn and grow from Blogshop. Thank you:)

    Leah says:

    ooo this is awesome! I’d have several reasons for taking blogshop online… I’d love to be more proficient with photoshop in general for my blog and the social media content I create for various bands and businesses.

    kristen t says:

    I would definitely use my new knowledge of photoshop to help me get ahead academically!! i’m looking into going into graphic design or something similar, and I feel like having this extra bit of knowledge could really beef up my portfolio

    Jessica says:

    A seat in blog shop would really give me the boost I need to start the blog that all of my friends have been requesting me to start! I was never quite happy with the way the blog I attempted in the past turned out, so I never wanted to put it out there. I think brushing up on my photoshop skills and learning new techniques would really help set things in motion.

    Jasmine says:

    I would love the opportunity to hone in on my Photoshop skills to create a brand identity for the blog I want to start. Pick me!!

    Julia B says:

    My dream is to one day have a design company of my own within an artist collective, with lots of collaborations, community workshops, and fun art shows. My background is in printmaking, and I will be starting graphic design classes soon, but I would love to begin my journey with tutorials from two inspiring go-getters, whose design aesthetic I love and admire!

    Chelsea says:

    Hi! I love that you offer this opportunity. I am launching my event design business June 1st. Whew! I am excited, nervous and scared all at once. I have no experience blogging but I want my blog to be an integral part of my business where people can not only view my work but get to know me and obviously I want it to be worth following! This would be a great opportunity for me as I can’t ever seem to make an in person class! Thanks! -Chelsea Ann

    China Mykal says:

    Eeesh! I would LOVE nothing more than to do the online course! I am in the creative industry, but the mystic tools of blogging have never been my forte. I’ve been super eager to get a blog of my own started (one that has been my brainchild for the past two years). I have so much content prepared, but I want to learn all of your fantastic tricks to launch a beautiful and easily navigable blog with unique character and full of unique pizazz! Help me learn the ways of the blogosphere and make my first post extra scrumptious? (it involves food! So it must be extra yummy, right?!) Filling the cracks of my creative knowledge with some extra-special-blog-glue would seriously make my whole year, maybe even decade…

    Erin says:

    I’m a sewing blogger who wants to kick her blog up to the next notch. I also just got a DSLR so I have even more motivation!

    Cristina says:

    I would totally use this to learn some neat tips and tricks to really beef up the Field Notes section of my blog over at http://www.bloghomage.com! It’s been lacking some pizazz lately, so this would help me rejuvenate it to it’s fullest potential!

    valerie says:

    Hi! I would love to take that class since i live far away (in Argentina). I scrapbook and make cards, i’m looking forward to start my own blog, my skills are not that good, and i really want to make something apealing to the eye and attractive, and as creative as my scrapbook lay outs. Thanks for the chance!

    Carissa Ghaffari says:

    I’m a Junior Art Director at a marketing agency, and I’m looking to make myself an invaluable resource to my company by being able to maintain and punch up our presence in the blogosphere and social media (which is non-existent right now).

    Cass says:

    I am a magazine art director and I am looking to start my own business – so a beautiful blog would definitely help.

    Courtney says:

    I have a blog and an etsy shop and since I have been busy with my etsy shop, I feel like I have lost grips on my blog. I would LOVE to take blogshop online to get a better feel for how to design and hone my blogging look. I think it would be beneficial to take my blog a step further by keeping my blog beautiful and well designed.

    Briana says:

    I own a card and party shop, and I’d love to use some blogshop skills to snazzy up my website and social media presence!

    Dominique says:

    I am a teacher and am always looking for new ways to inspire my students. I want to improve my own skills so I can pass the knowledge on as blogging and creating a web presence is so important and relevant to the young people of today.

    Taylor says:

    So awesome! I’ve been wanting to take this online course! It looks incredible! I would love the chance to learn new skills to make my blog look even better and to help create a more consistent and beautiful look to my photos.Good luck to all!


    Janelle says:

    I would love the opportunity to take blogshop online! I have a (very, very sad and neglected) blog that I’d really like to amp up so I can use it as a tool to help grow my business, and I’m also hoping to do a re-brand of my business – and this would allow me to do it myself!

    Jenny Bailey says:

    I would love to learn a few more tricks to start creating really great, consistent, pinterest-ready original content for my blog!

    Rosemary says:

    My friend and I started a company, Where Roses Bloom, three years ago. We started as a vintage boutique on Etsy, but have grown into styling local events and photoshoots as well. If I were to say WE LOVE IT, that wouldnt be enough! 🙂 We have had an incredible time learning what it takes to make our dream thrive and grow. We are so excited to see where this dream takes us, but we also know that showing our best side is one quality that helps a company bloom. We want everyone to experience that when they work with Where Roses Bloom, and that means we need help learning the tips and tricks behind making our blog and our Etsy stand out from the rest!

    I would love to be able to win a spot in your class, it has been a dream, and I hope it will come true! It truly would help my business move toward something even more beautiful. 🙂


    Allywan says:

    I’d used blogshop to help fix up my own blog. As a design student I’m already familiar with photoshop, but would love to learn new tips and tricks!

    Sarah sky says:

    I would love to win your blog shop workshop because it looks amazing and I have been very inspired by your aesthetic. I have been an artisty entire life but I have never really been able to translate my aesthetic to the online world. I think your workshop would help me do just that. Thanks for the opportunity to win it because I couldn’t afford it right now.

    Eeek! I’ve been dying to take this class! I own a photography business but would love to take my skills up a notch beyond making photos look pretty. How to use photoshop for design, creating logos, making pretty things. And incorporating those skills altogether, for a designphotofest, if you will? 🙂 Please pick me!!

    Elizabeth L says:

    I intern for small businesses, running blogs and creating social media graphics for brand awareness. I would love to have a better grasp on photoshop! (:

    I’m Marchelle, a hair stylist and new salon owner in San Diego. I am passionate about sharing my vision for a sustainable future and low chemical hair color.
    This has become increasingly difficult to share my vision when my books are full and the demand for effective and beautifully designed social media is rapid not to leave out it takes TIME. Time is what I want more of, don’t have enough of and I can’t wait to have more effective skills in Photoshop and getting my Blog Rocking!
    I love Blogshop and have always wanted to attend and this could be the perfect opportunity for me to be able to make it happen. Oh, I would just be thrilled.

    Awesome, what a giveaway! Would be great to win this. Your style & taste inspires me! It would be lovely to attend blogshop workshop. I have a blog, but use it only for personal use like lifestyle pictures of my life as a homeschooling mom. Would be great to start another blog with awesome skills learned at blogshop, to share my lifestyle ideas with the world!

    Alivia says:

    I run a small online shop and would love to learn Photoshop skills to improve my photos and streamline the process for editing and posting photos. Thank you for the opportunity!

    Pam says:

    I’m in design school and one of my goals is to start my own blog! This would help me improve my current design abilities and motivate me to get that blog started!

    Kirstie says:

    What an exciting giveaway! I run a fairly successful Etsy shop, but I’d love to learn new skills to expand my market even more!

    Jeanette Rainer says:

    This will really help launch my quest to learn the adobe creative suite. Thanks for offering this ladies!!

    I would love to use Blogshop as a way to expand my creativity and design skills for my blog. I would really like to learn more about customizing my site and allowing my personal aesthetic to shine through digitally. I think this would help me immensely! Thanks for this giveaway! 🙂

    Oh goodness, a spot in the online Blogshop course would be a dream! I am an interior designer and blogger currently residing in Boston (relocated from San Diego). Since the move (6 months ago) I have transitioned to full-time designing for my fairly new design studio. Such an exciting, yet nerve-wracking time and I think now more than ever I need to better my Photoshop skills + become more efficient. And what better to gain that knowledge than from inspiring ladies like yourselves!

    Fingers and toes are crossed!

This blogshop will definitely give me the tools I need in order to grow.

I’ve been working as a freelance florist for a few years and want to turn my passion into a career and to do that I need to build an online presence. Photoshop and graphic design is a medium I am not so experienced with!

    I am currently rebranding my blog and could really use a great Photoshop refresher. I’ve always wanted to be a really dynamic blogger and a BLOGSHOP class would help me immensely. Thanks Bri!


    tiffany says:

    I definitely need to learn to use Photoshop! I started a blog a little while ago and love doing it but it really needs some more oomph! I need to be able to translate what I see in my head to the screen! I also have plans of starting a small online shop in addition to my blog so this would be doubly helpful!

    Sarah says:

    I’d love to participate in Blogshop to take my blog to the next level! I’ve been blogging for 4 years but know my images could use some work.

    April Vang says:

    Please please please pick me! I would use my new found awesome blogshop skills to make my blog more visually appealing and fun! My new skills would allow me to edit awesome photos, add gifs, and overall awesomeness! The opportunity to improve my Photoshop skills and blogging skills would probably unblock a lot of creativity I didn’t know I have because I feel so limited. This would be an amazing opportunity. Please pick me!!

    Hande says:

    I wouldn’t call myself a real blogger yet but i am trying to be one 🙂 i would use my new skills to create a more personal blog. Right now texts are weighing more in my blog and i would love to add some color to my texts with photos and visuals. Great giveaway! Have a nice day you guys!

    Linnae says:

    I’m starting to help people who want to write and speak get started. And a big part of that is helping them start a blog. I really need to be educated as much as possible on blogging PLUS I’ve just always wanted to do this with you guys, and since I live in Shreveport LA and newly married… this would be perfect to do it online.
    So anyway, it would be a boost for my little startup company that will help get people to their dreams!

    I just did my Master’s in Arts and Media Administration & am applying for a job in digital communication. I’d love to improve my Photoshop skills to sharpen my profile & believe that your Blogshop will definitely help me doing that. Also, I am a lover of design and your work – why not learning from the best? Best from Berlin!

    maggie says:

    Oh my gosh, yes please! I am working on a blog with my sister and while we have a decent following, I feel like a redesign and some new killer blogshop skills would really raise our ability to gain repeat readers. This is such an awesome giveaway, Bri! Fingers crossed!

    Hannah says:

    I have been wanting to take a blogshop course but its just too pricey for me. I’m a military wife wanting to expand my blogging skills so I can take my job with me where ever we move next. I would love to be more proficient in Photoshop and use them at my current job working at an architecture firm. Thanks so much for offering this opportunity!

    Meghan says:

    I want to make online and print promo materials that help me take my dance company to the next level, and can match the talent of the artists who are involved in the shows that we produce. There’s approximately no money in modern dance, so I’m very hopeful about this giveaway!

    Bernadette says:

    Hello! I am just getting my side project of wedding photography and invitation design for budget brides started. I would love to be able to beef up a blog or website and really get this project off the ground! There’s only a million small wedding photographers out there 😉 so I’d like to be able to define and refine my personal style through the skills taught in this course! Thank you 🙂

    Sarah says:

    Oh! I’ve been trying to be more consistent and creative with my own personal blog, so this would be awesome!

    Tara says:

    I would use the skills learned at Blogshop to enhance my freelance capabilities and to come up with more great content ideas for my blogs! I have seriously watched all of the Blogshop videos on Vimeo and showed them to my boss. It would be awesome if I could attend online!

    – Tara

    Chelsea jean says:

    I hardly blog anymore because it needs an overhaul so badly! I would use everything I learn from you guys to fix it up to the internet corner of my dreams, start posting and inspire as many people as I can! Thanks so much 🙂

    Grace H says:

    I work as a blog manager, and I think Blogshop would really bump up the creativity of our corporate blog!

    Gillian says:

    Hi Bri! I’ve been a reader for many years now, since your first logo banner 😉 I would love to have the chance to attend blogshop as I am in the midst of writing travel stories from my trip around europe and asia this past year. Blogshop would help me create layouts for the photos and a way to reach people all over the world 🙂

    Heather S says:

    I would use my new skills for both. Making more creative blog posts and also polish my small business skills! Thanks!

    sarylo says:

    I would use the blogshop giveaway to launch my blog! The blog is a country mouse/city mouse daily picture comparison of a girl from the mountains of Idaho to a city girl living in NYC….I’m the mountain girl and my best buddy Laurena is the city girl. I am brand new to photoshop but pick things up very quickly and would love to learn anything from you gals!!! xoox

    Amy says:

    I am currently a freelancing Development professional. I want to learn how to use photoshop so I better design collateral materials for the groups that I am working with. I can tell a great story with words but I want to be able to show a great story with beautiful pictures/design pieces.

    Grace says:

    I would use blogshop to improve my posts on my blog- they need a lot of technical help!

    Rebecca says:

    I have two small businesses. They are the way I make my living and I am a mom. I am ALWAYS looking for way to save time and this will be a big one for me. I spend tons of time running two blogs to support my two businesses. I have no employees right now and would love to learn some ways to tame my time working on my blogs to promote my businesses while still having them look rad. I also design everything for both of my retail based websites which I need quick, easy ways to make stuff look great while not robbing my time.

    Thank you so much for offering this very generous giveaway especially with so many spots being given away.

    Basak says:

    hey! i am starting a new online business with my mom – we will be offering hand-knitted accessories for kids and adults. I am a photoshop newbie and it would be amazing to participate in blogshop and learn skills to create pretty images for the website and establish an online presence. love from turkey x

    Katie says:

    Yes! I’d love to take a blogshop course, but financially things have been tight for me. I’d love to improve my photoshop skills and use them for my blog. I’d especially love to learn how to animate gifs and create better, more dynamic collages with texture and cool layouts. Fingers crossed!!

    rox says:

    I would absolutely LOVE to win this giveaway! I’m a blogger & artist who quitting her day job & heading back to school FULL TIME this fall to pursue my dream of becoming a high school art teacher. Gaining some sweet photoshop skills from BLOGSHOP would not only be great for my business & blog – but it could be something I could share & help w/ my future students!!! THANK-YOU for the chance!!

    Heather says:

    My fiance is working with his dad to produce and supply artisanal meats for local restaurants in the Midwest. We are trying to build our online presence and this would be a fantastic kick-start!

    Amanda says:

    I would love to utilize Blogshop for my new food blog!

    Tracey says:

    I have an etsy shop and blog, and I’d love to learn some skills to make them more attractive!

    caitlin dupuigrenet says:

    I just started managing my neighborhood farmers market here in Memphis, but it’s so hard to get people to come out and shop! I’ve noticed that the few instagram posts I’ve made have garnered more interest than anything else! I would like to start a blog to show people what the market is all about – fresh local food, a slower life style, cooking together, learning from each other, artisanal goods, community building etc… Blogshop would be incredibly helpful in making this happen!

    Maren says:

    I have a blog and would love to learn some basic graphic designs skills for that, but I also work in publishing and it would be so helpful to know more about Photoshop for my career!

    Mana says:

    I’d love to use my new Blogshop skills to better my blog. I love design and photography and this will be a great chance for me to know how to better use all my skills. I also want to start a personal business in India, and i am still finding my foot around here.

    Jenny says:

    Hi lovely ladies! I have been dreaming about attending Blogshop for two years now and just haven’t had the financial means to attend. BUT, I constantly use Designlovefest as a space for inspiration. I have a small online lifestyle/baking/yoga blog that I started about a year ago! I’ve always wanted to expand my blog to be more visually stunning and interesting for my creativity and for connecting to new readers! I think the tools in this class would transform my blog and create an outlet in my life that makes my soul sing! Xo! -Jenny

    Jessica C. says:

    I would love to win because I believe that I can learn great skills to do better on my little blog! I admire your work and I think that I would be learning from the best. I truly hope I can win this one! Best giveaway 🙂 Good luck to everyone.

    Kendall says:

    Two friends and I are in the initial stage (a stage that has continued for months) of starting a blog and could use some inspiration from this class on how to develop our test posts to be actual posts worth posting :).

    Althea M says:

    Owning my own fibre arts store means that my online presence is SO important! I already use designlovefest as a daily source of inspiration, so I would use blogshop at home to learn from the best and further my business!

    I would LOVE to win this! I own a event styling and floral design business and would love to utilize photoshop more on my site and blog! I think the class would help me set apart my online presence in a powerful way!

    Sagal says:

    I’m working on an online publication and resumé building project for young people who want to take over the world. We will be providing inspiration through content, and opportunities for personal/professional development. Naturally, we’ll need to add to our photoshop toolkit so we can create beautiful beautiful graphics, too!

    Megean says:

    I just went through a blog redesign and it became very apparent that the poor thing needs some seriously upgraded graphics and images. This course will point me in the right direction!

    Lindsay says:

    Bonjour! I’ve been waiting for blogshop to come back to Paris, so this seems like a great alternative! I’ve written my first children’s book and I’d beginning to dive into the publishing process. The blogshop skills could definitely help me from my resume and business card, to mood boards and fun business proposals to show the publishers. Great giveaway! *fingers crossed*

    Shelby M. says:

    I have my own blog that I’ve sadly been neglecting for months now. It’d be great to have some new skills to help me get back with it! I also recently applied for a position as a social media director for a small florist. What better way to gain followers than with pretty flower-filled blog posts and ig pics? (If things work out 😉

    kelly says:

    I would use it to gain a better understanding of photography for blogs and to help motivate me to relaunch my blog under an easier CRM than my old site which has been under construction since starting grad school.

    Natalie Hotaling says:

    I’d love to use my new skills to help refresh the look of social media where I work!

    Allison says:

    I am about to launch a new blog and I would LOVE to have some photoshop skills to boast of.

    Amanda says:

    Oooh yippie!!!! I always get taken up with all of your amazing photos and stories from Blogshop and I would love the opportunity to learn some new skills from home. I just opened my own company a couple of months ago (marketing and communication consulting for small businesses) and learning more about photoshop and blogging would be so helpful! I am self-taught and know I have a lot to learn in terms of blogging/photoshop. I would love to be able to help my customers and to also better present my business online. Thanks for all the work you do!

    Kelly says:

    Nice! I would use this for EVERYTHING. Real life work ( at an ad agency), to help start up my blog, AND hopefully one day fuel a business. Very cool, thanks!

    Kim Newton says:

    I just launched a new travel blog, but it’s seriously lacking in pizzaz! I think that a little photoshop knowledge would go a very long way…

    I need Blogshop! I am a calligrapher in Dallas, desperately needing to improve my blog. I missed the blogshop here in Dallas in 2012 and would love to catch up online!

    Kat says:

    This is the best gift one can receive, learning. I currently run a small blog and know photoshop but would like to perfect it and learn new methods. There is always room to learn and I think this is a perfect opportunity.


    Haaayyyy! What a great opportunity! I’d love to learn more efficient techniques and how to make gifs. Yes. I need more gifs in my life. xo anna

    Yoshiko says:

    I’ve wanted to start a blog for a long time, but I don’t have the technical expertise to pull off the blog that I’ve been designing in my head. Your wonderful class would make my dreams a reality!

    I would love to shoot for the stars with my blog and Etsy shop ♥

    Kendall says:

    This is such an awesome opportunity! I am the content creator for two store’s blogs within our company (Perspicasity and Pizitz Home & Cottage). I’ve always loved any outlet where I can be creative, but am struggling keeping content looking fresh & trendy without the know-how. (I am a Political Economics major, so my computer know-how is severely lacking!)

    I have some photoshop knowledge, but the opportunity to learn new tricks and techniques would be a God send!!!

    Suzie says:


    I would love to win a spot for blogshop for a lot of reasons! I used to blog more regularly (inspired much by your blog) but have gotten away from it after a rough year-ish. I’m finally getting to place where I think I’m ready to get back into it. Also, I’m taking on new roles with my job which I think I could really go above and beyond with learning some new skills via blogshop!!

    Amanda Player says:

    I am a self-proclaimed blogger without a blog, this opportunity would give me the confidence boost I need to finally launch the blog of my dreams. Hoping to win!

    Robyn says:

    If my blog could look half as good as Design Love Fest does, I’d be a happy camper!! I’d love to participate in your upcoming BlogShop seminar to learn ways to make my blog really pop. To separate it from others who are maybe writing/sharing about similar topics. I just know that Blogshop can help me!

    When my husband and I moved from a very small town (think 800 people) in Vermont to the Upper West Side of Manhattan about two months ago, we started a blog and I am hooked! I love taking picture of our adventures in NYC and finding interesting and unexpected places to visit, and then, sharing it all on our blog. The little conversations sparked with friends and family are so fun, too! I have some Photoshop and Illustrator skills, but it would be an amazing opportunity to take this course and really learn how Photoshop can be applied to a blog. Thanks, Bri, for generously giving away spots in your class to those of us that may not otherwise be able to purchase a (virtual) seat! : ) xx


    kristin says:

    I want to make my travel photos look beautiful!

    this giveaway is so awesome! i’m a a blogger and artist, I was trained mostly in fine arts, photography/painting. I would love to learn these much sought after skills, I would love to learn techniques, gifs, and layered designs, that could help me give my blog some moxie,but mostly for education and a skill to use for the rest of my life.

    Lindsay Jean says:

    Hi! I’m a business owner (life coach + yoga teacher) *and* a blogger. I’d love to learn these skills to make my blog posts prettier and more engaging and for building my business. Thank you for the opportunity! XO

    Tiffany says:

    I would love to learn how to upgrade my graphic design skills firstly so that I could brand my blog better and also enrich my job.
    It is also a fact that I read the blogshop website and the experience looks a-mazing!

    Lisa says:

    I have a blog that is in need of some more visual pizazz! My Photoshop skills are limited, and I am sure that Blogshop would give me exactly the knowledge I need. And who wouldn’t want the option to learn in their pajamas?

    Katy says:

    I have been dying to take blog shop! I just want to know the tips and tricks to make my photoshop skills faster and also learn some cool tricks I don’t know.

    Marie says:

    I would love to win this for my fiancé who runs a small business called The Whaling Club here in Los Angeles. I’ve seen what have a good looking online presence can do!

    emilie says:

    i’ve been wanting to redesign my blog and develop a strong brand identity for my side business and haven’t quite made the steps to do so… I would love to learn from you ladies– you have such an amazing way with beautiful design 🙂

    Hello ladies! I am an event designer that recently re-located to Las Vegas from LA (seriously missing my little apartment on Curson) but now that I’m out here in the middle of nowhere, I am finally able to devote all of my time to my small business. I love small business education workshops and would seriously jump for joy and scream like a wild banshee if I won! I’ll send over the video too to prove it! Hah

    Mallory S. says:

    I’m both a blogger and work in branding/integrated marketing where remedying my lack of Photoshop knowledge could go a long way in my work (and towards a better paying gig!) I’d love the opportunity to upgrade the look of my blog too; it’s still hovering in builder-basic mode at the moment!

    Rika says:

    Apart from using it to better edit my photo’s, I’d like to design my own blog template. Also, I recently started making art again. So skills to digitally enhance scans of my artwork will come in very handy!

    heidi says:

    I would love to improve my blog!

    Sarah says:

    I’ve always admired your blog and would love to learn all of the little tips and tricks that make it look so amazing. I’m in the process of starting my own small business and could use some extra inspiration!

    Britney says:

    Im a blogger (been going for 3 years now) whose currently going through the rebranding process. and eventually I want to create a couple brands alongside the blog that will offer another revenue stream. I really need a point of difference and that way I can take my blog to the next level in this saturated environment the internet has now become!! Thats what I’d use it for. WOW. Long rambley comment 😛

    Jade says:

    I’m an illustrator and designer that can’t use my tools as much as I’d want to! I would love to be able to learn more from stylish, down to earth, teachers

    Emily says:

    I’d love to join Blogshop Online from Dublin! I’ve been dying to learn how to cut fonts out of patterns and photographs. And I think I’d love to learn how to do a few basic things properly – instead of the self-taught way that takes forever!

    Elle says:

    I need some of your magic!

    Kianny says:

    OMG! I am seriously speechless and super excited that you are running this contest! I have been dying to go to your workshops for months! I love graphic design and web design and regret the fact that I picked the wrong degree and career. I have taught myself everything I know about photoshop but I know that I can learn more effective ways to use the program successfully. I just started my blog and plan to start my own eCommerce site within the next two years. Taking this course will give me better knowledge of graphic design. I really hope I win this!!

    Katie says:

    I am a master of photoshop when designing interfaces but not so much with editing photos. I need some of your magic teaching skills in my life ASAP! I want to kickstart a blog and define my visual voice outside of the UX/UI that i work on. Please please please!

    Courtney says:

    i would love to win this. I always get so swoony when you post pics from your blogshops but just can’t afford to swing it! I’d use it to beef up my online presence for my small business! Here’s hoping!

    Jordan S. says:

    I made a blog a few months ago, but it is currently just sitting in limbo because I honestly don’t have the skills it takes to get started on it and make it pretty. I would love the opportunity to use blogshop to jump start my blog and create something I am excited to use on a daily basis for both personal and professional reasons. I am looking to forward my career in communications, specifically digital media, and having an attractive, successful blog is a great addition to my resume. This would be an amazing prize to win!

    i would use new skillz for growing my small freelancing business and my blog! i would love love to win!

    Kendra says:

    I would use my new blogshop skills to revamp my brand new blog/photography website. My dream is to build my brand and help out other businesses in my little community over here. I would LOVE to learn all the cute little things I see on your blog!!

    Marjorie says:

    Starting my own business in a few weeks and would love to acquire as much skills as possible so I can be as self-sufficient as I can be. Winning this would be so awesome and a great start!

    Anonymous says:

    I would love to learn the skills to expand my small photography business on my blog. Having recently moving to London after following DLF for years, I have been hoping and praying for you to come back here for a class! BUT now that you’ve launched the online version for blogshop, this is the best opportunity! I am so excited and REALLY hope I win! YAY!

    Cheryl Sorg says:

    One of these days, I really want to do blogshop in person – the inspiring environment, fabulous goodie bags and meeting cool classmates would be so fantastic! In the meantime, however….I need skills. I am an artist with a web site and etsy shop that could use a bit of help. I got my art school degree in photography, but it was fifteen years ago and I worked with a 4×5 view camera, darkroom, hand retouching of prints…..super analog and old-school. I learned nothing about digital and photoshop and the like and I would LOVE to.

    jess p says:

    I am going for a career change to be more creative and being able yo use photoshop is key. This course is on my list of things to do to achieve this change in my life. I’m a novice. Never even opened photoshop but know i could do it with some tuition!!

    Nicole Massey says:

    I would use the class for my blog and my business. I currently have the entire creative suite and I don’t know how to use it! I need help! HELP!!!!!!

    Lorraine says:

    I would use it for my blog!

    Stephanie says:

    Along with having my blog Confetti & Sprinkles, I also own a small baking company called Vanilla Lane. I really would love to learn how to use photoshop so I can make my photo’s look more professional and polished. I would love to learn new techniques so I can layer, add texture, and even create collages and moodboards without the assistance of templates from third party websites. Basically, I would love to kick things up a notch and make my blog and business more unique and eye catching!

    I have been dying to take it and would love to use blogshop to improve my blog and start a design business! I am an interior designer. Thank you!!

    Jamie says:

    I use Photoshop all the time for my job with a non-profit, but I’m all self taught so I’ve ALWAYS wondered if there’s something I’m missing! I would totally benefit from Blogshop to polish my eye and get closer to a product that I LOVE! I’ve also always wanted to start a blog, so maybe this would be the right kickstart…

    Hey Bri!

    I am a Graphic Design student in the UK and i have been trying to teach myself how to use Photoshop to better my skill set, to get the opportunity to learn with you, a blogger that I have admired for a very long time, would be the best thing ever.

    I have a blog but have lost my confidence in blogging as I felt my posts were very mix and match, perhaps it could give me that kick up the bum to get blogging again too.

    Plus, to be an intern for Blogshop when you come to London next would be a dream so I have to work on my Photoshop skills big time! 😉



    Rachael says:

    I work in Special Events and would love to learn photoshop to save time & money on graphic design work that we currently outsource. We recently hired an assistant who is well-versed in photoshop, and it has proved an invaluable skill to have in our industry!

    Emma Harris says:

    Hi there, I would love to use skills learnt on your blogshop course on my new blog, having spent quite a few hours trying to produce a teeny tiny photoshop collage, I have realised that it is a skill I could definitely do with 🙂

    Brooke Stuart says:

    My skills in Photshop have improved over the years, but for editing photos only. Currently i’m going to be managing my company’s blog and would love to be able to make it more colorful and pleasing to the eye. I also want to learn all of the shortcuts that I “magically” find whilst hitting the wrong keys!

    I would also use these skills to redesign my online portfolio for freelance work!

    K.W. says:

    I just started blogging and I have dreams of one day starting my own business with the blog as a beginning. This would definitely help me get fueled up for that venture!

    I am a blogger from wayyy back in the day who stopped blogging because it became a full time job, even though I loved it. Now I am back in it to win it. When I stopped blogging, after about 2 months, I realized that blogging was a perfect outlet for me and a perfect avenue for my clients. As an interior designer, I love having my blog but it needs more jazz! bang! wow! pop! And I know this class would help me get it. I have the champagne in the cooler ready to go. Choose me and I promise to love you forever…

    Hi bri! What a generous giveaway.. your skills and knowledge are so inspirational. We are all so lucky you have made classes for us to learn from your lovely self. I am a blogger and would love to improve in all ways I can. I am new to photoshop, but falling more and more in love daily. So I’d love to learn from you about it!

    If I am not one of the lucky winners, it’s definitely on my list for things to buy asap!

    Ivana says:

    I would like to make my dreams come true 🙂

    Flavia B. says:

    Hello! I’m an advertising student from Brazil (and trying to become a designer). Having a blog has been on my mind for a long time now, I know it’s an important platform to showcase my work and I hope it could open a lot of possibilities for me, as building a blog for brazilian startups. I am very interested in learning as much as I can from people like you, that I admire so much. I would love to win a spot in blogshop online and improve my skills for life! 🙂

    Kait says:

    I am swimming in the problem of a ton of fun data and not much to show for it. I’ve read my fair share of “blogger tips” and can’t seem to get into the groove alone. Blogshop would be the kick I need to get my ideas from my notebook and out into the interwebs in a way I’m proud of. And what is better than to learn from the best?! Such a cool offer you’ve got going. I’d love to get in and get real about my blog.

    Amber says:

    I would use the tools I learn in blogshop to refresh my new business website and create better images and content for my blog. I am a designer by trade but mainly print and pre-press with little photoshop and web experience. I am also in nutrition school besides my full time job so so taking this online will be best for my busy schedule!

    Katie A says:

    would love to jazz up my blog & try my hand at designing some pretty fun + fresh art for my naked walls!

    Kim says:

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I’ve been wanting to join blogshop for such a long time now, since I’d love to learn photoshop!

    I would really like to continue my learning of Photoshop – and take better notes the second time around. The first time I was a little deer in headlights, this time I would be READY!

    Claudia says:

    HOLA Bri! First I want to say I love your blog! I know this would be great for me because right now I’m in a transition were I’m looking for a job and right now I would have a lot of free time to improve my blog and improve my photoshop skills. I hope I get picked and can’t wait to share with you my improvements to my blog.

    It’s been my dream to take blogshop for awhile now, and it’d be amazing to win one of these spots! I started my blog Savor Good last fall. Blogshop is just what I need to create better looking blog posts and to experience a confidence and creativity boost. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    Pamela says:

    I’ve been wanting to start a blog for awhile, but don’t feel like I know everything I should in order to have the blog be successful. My husband also recently created a blog to promote his business, so I’d love to assist him with sprucing it up. I’ve also been wanting to learn photoshop for the longest time! This would be an amazing opportunity!!

    Brianna Wray says:

    Hi Bri! My name’s Bri, too. I’ve been a blogger for over 5 years now and recently switched to a new site with my own domain. I’d like to figure out where to grow and improve in an effort to monetize. Ooh I hope I win!

    Rachel K. Smith says:

    Struggling 20 something’er trying to freelance and get more exposure to land my dream job. This would just help me push along to reach my goals and fun!

    Brittany Horowitz says:

    Perhaps I would finally start that blog I have been contemplating for years… 🙂

    The class would give me confidence to finally dive in.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    Emily says:

    Ah! I would absolutely love to do this! I want to attend blogshop so I can add creative to my client deliverables without having to run to a designer!

    I’m a blogger and I could definitely use that extra help with photoshop! I would love to pretty up my collages, and one of these days, I am going to figure out how to crop out a background!

    Kell says:

    I’m doing the scariest and most exciting thing I’ve ever done – I’m leaving a full time stable corporate career and launching a photography business. Ahhhhh!!!! I would give my right arm to learn all the nuggets Bri and co share at Blogshop. I need y’all!

    Molly says:

    I desperately need photoshop tips to enhance my blogs aesthetic! Would love to learn from dlf

    Alexia Delgado says:

    This giveaway is great and I hope more than anything to win!
    I’ve been so desperately wanting to go to a blogshop in person but I cannot afford whatsoever! I’m currently going to school and working, while trying to start up my own business. I think I could do it, but I need more photoshop experience to make it more WOW. If I didn’t have to work to pay for school, I would definitely take your a blogshop course!
    Would LOVE to learn as much as I can from you guys!!

    Jess Zimlich says:

    I’m a lifestyle blogger at 26 and Not Counting. I would love to walk away from Blogshop with fresh ideas that no one else has come up with yet. Although Blogshop in person looks so much more fun, I would be smitten if I won the online version. I’ll just keep living vicariously through Instagram 😉

    Melissa Arnold says:

    I would love to learn Photoshop to build upon my own super brain power! Thanks for the chance to be turned on by knowledge!

    Style Tutor says:

    I would use the skills to improve the quality of the content I post to my personal blog as well as share new tricks w/ students in my Newspaper, Yearbook, and Design and Merchandising classes.

    Amber says:

    Attending blogshop has been on my list of things I would love to do for a very long time. Although the funds or having babies has not allowed me the chance to attend yet. Winning a spot for the online course would be amazing as I know how much I would learn that I could incorporate into my blog, a magazine I’m wanting to start with a friend and my husband and I’s new tea venture. It would take everything to the next level and allow me to keep moving forward, to keep learning and to keep growing. Which I believe are all essential for living a full and successful life!

    i am new blogger and have been wanting to take the full course of blogshop. i was apart of a 1-day bootcamp version with feet first back in april of 2012. i would love to learn more on how i can make my blog better and use those skills for my small photography business=)

    Micha says:

    I’m going to take over a small business very soon and will start to blog on new products, workshops and the like. It would be the PERFECT timing for learning helpful tricks and improving my photoshop skills – from absolutely adorable teachers!

    Emma Radke says:

    HI HI HI HI HI HI !!!

    I’m Emma, I’m a senior in college studying design arts & will be graduating in December. I also have an Etsy store, The Throwback Daze, where I sell large scale macrame furniture & decor.

    I have been thinking more and more that when I graduate, rather than getting a job at a design firm right away, I’d try to do more with macrame & fiber arts as a way to support myself with my own creativity. Learning the finer points of PS will REALLY help me out on this front. Obviously as a college student, I can’t really afford to buy a spot in either class on my own, so if you’re looking for a worthwhile candidate…

    PICK ME 😀

    Stefani Ferreira says:

    I would use my new blogshop skills for updating my Interior Design website and layout design. I would like to incorporate my newly established edesign packages on the web in a creative way-in doing this I am trying to showcase the design package and work on the presentation for the client by doing so in Photoshop and Illustrator!

    I have a blog that I want to make fit my brand a lot more. I have some photoshop skill, but very little and would love to learn from you ladies! also, I have a lot of products (e-books and courses) in the works and being able to create beautiful photos and videos in blogshop would be a HUGE help! Ahh I’m so excited about this giveaway! Couldn’t have come at a better time!

    I am a visual artist who has blogged forever, in a most un-visual manner. I would like my written world make a better mate to my painted world.

    I’m a blogger and small business owner (both an online shop and a brick and mortar retail space!) and would love to improve my photo skills!

    Helen says:

    would love to learn more about video!

    I’d love to work on my existing photoshop skills to make my blogposts and projects that I post about look a little more professional. I live in a city where blogshop workshops are regularly held however with a newborn baby and two other young children actually getting my arse out of the house and to a workshop isn’t the easiest!

    Laura says:

    I would LOVE to expand my photoshop skills! I do a lot of print design in indesign/illustrator, and my photoshop skills are seriously lacking, which shows in my blog. I’ve been dying to take this class forever, and would be just delighted to attend! Thanks, lady!

    Bri Towne says:

    Wow! I would use my skills to improve my blog photos and create better collages. I would also creat a new shop page!

    Julie says:

    I would use what I learn here as I get ready to launch my blog. I would love to take this in person but being in Toronto and on a budget makes that a difficult option.

    KC says:

    I’m a freelance designer that recently began working on a blog for a small furniture retail shop. I always feel like I’m doing things the long way on Photoshop and would love to learn more efficient ways to make things look beautiful.

    Margo says:

    Hi! I’d absolutely love to join in the blogshop workshop, it would be an ideal platform to launch my little piece of the blogsphere into something I’m really truly proud of. At this point, I enjoy tinkering around in Photoshop but in all fairness, I think I’m just making things more complicated for myself. 🙂

    Emily J says:

    Hi Bri! I am thrilled this opportunity to develop an online presence for my small leather brand. I would love to learn efficient ways to make everything glossy, inviting and impossible not to click on! Your teaching tools are digital dance parties.

    Check out a few snapshots of my process and inspiration here:

    celeste says:

    hello! i have a camera, a logo, a website, and a passion for photography…but no experience in photoshop! so i’d definitely benefit from blogshop and am super excited to learn how to retouch skin tones and color correct images. thanks for creating the at home class option!

    Whitney Vass says:

    Hello darlin!
    I have my own blog (whitspeaks.com) and graphic design business (heartandarrowdesign.com), and I would love to practice photoshop. I always use Illustrator for my graphics because it just seems to come easier, but it would be great to learn photoshop.

    Thanks for this giveaway, I really hope I win!


    Diana says:

    I am a new actress and working on the path towards a small business as well, so blogshop would be very beneficial towards creating a website for both! Thanks for the opportunity!

    Annis says:

    Hi! Oh this would be great to win! I would use it for my blog that i want to start about my family and for editing photos from my daughter who is 3 months old today 🙂 i could also really really use it for my job, the courses they offer are for people who dont even know what a computer is ; )
    Yay hope i win!!!!!

    Janine says:

    I so need this! I need it for my upcoming family blog and party business!

    kel cadet says:

    Last year I was “emancipated” from my job as a designer due to a corporate restructure. I used that as my “Go” flag to finally work on launching my accessories company full-time. Shortly after (like 2 weeks) I found out I was expecting. (insert total lose of gusto) With the wind in my sails, but also being knocked out of me, the launch moved at snails pace. A year (and a baby) later I am finally picking up steam and am finding the rhythm I always knew I had, but never had the time to use effectively. Not only do I need this course to help refine my skills, but I want to be taught by 2 young women that are masters and are passionate about their craft. Plus, it would be greatest f-u to my student loan payments that have kept me from treating myself to something spectacular. 🙂 Either way, thanks for offering the giveaway and helping to grow the creative community. Cheers to the beyond.

    Holly says:

    I would love to have a refresher course for both my small business I work for and my own blog!! It would be MOST helpful!!

    Mary Beth says:

    I’d be starting from scratch with photoshop. I’ve always wanted to learn. Hoping to get back into blogging ASAP and some new skills to refresh and improve would be amazing! My husband also has a new company that would love some new marketing material. My photos around the house wouldn’t mind some freshening up either!

    I’m in the process of starting a new business with my mom. It’s going to be a retail store with apparel, home decor, and accessories with everything having a new bohemian, southwest vibe. Visually interesting social media and blogs are very vital to our marketing strategy and I would love to expand my photoshop skills for our company. We plan to open in October so now is the perfect time to get started!

    C h r i s t i n a says:

    H e l l o A l l

    I am a high school art and photography teacher, I want to better my skills and pass on the knowledge to my amazing students!

    Blogshop has interested me for some time…and I am just really excited about it!

    jimena says:

    Hi Bri and Angela! I’m a graphic designer but I need inspiration and a big refresher because I’ve been doing other stuff since I graduated a few years ago (jewelry, mainly 🙂 ). I want to be able to refresh my brand constantly, update packaging, and redesign my blog (which looks very template-y at the moment!). Fingers crossed!

    Elizabeth says:

    I’d love to learn fun tips and tricks for my blog–I know some Photoshop but I’m guessing there are a ton of shortcuts that I could learn!

    I’d definitely use the tips for sprucing up the images for my blog posts, to learn some new tricks in photoshop and to get inspiration for my blog design!

    Rachel says:

    OMG! Everyone enter! I won lat time and it was the best class ever! Thanks Girls!

    Jillian says:

    I am starting a photography business and I would love to know how to design my own graphics!

    heather says:

    I write a lifestyle blog and am the assistant editor for a travel blog – both side jobs on top of working in corporate video. I’m proficient yet imperfect and a little uninspired in Photoshop, so I’d love to have my creative juices high-kicked into gear. Or should I say high-curled into gear? I don’t know … all my money is going to Bar Method right now so I’d love to win a spot 😉

    Zoya M says:

    Hi there! So I’ve tried to start blogs on several different occasions but I’ve never been able to get it quite right – because I lack the skills! This course would help me bring all the creations in my head to life. Good luck to all & Congratulations to the winners 😀

    Alli says:

    I think taking Blogshop would give me the confidence and kickstart I need to restart my blog. I stopped blogging about a year ago (life got in the way) and I would love to start it up again…but in a much more creative and visually appealing way. Blogshop is a fresh and inspiring way to get back into the blogging work 🙂

    Dakota says:

    I love my blog but I KNOW it could be improved with tips from you guys! I learned a few basic photoshop skills in school but I’d like to advance it and stop being so afraid of it hehe

    T. Shareen Dash says:

    Hi Bri and Angela! I am a museum educator with the Smithsonian, and I would love to take this online class for so many reason. For starters, you gals are amazing, and have so much knowledge to share. If I won I would use all of the super awesome information I learn to design online resources for educators.

    katie lee says:

    i would use blogshop for a digital portfolio of my architecture work!

    Amy says:

    Blogshop is on my list of things to do before the end of the year! I recently started my own food blog and use Photoshop here and there for editing photos but I’ve never taken a real course. I know there’s probably a million things I don’t know about how to use it. I want to learn as much as I can!

    AbbeyD says:

    For the last few years I’ve been volunteering w/ organizations that help bring more STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) education to young girls — but I when I teach these workshops, I do it with an emphasis on the artistic and creative ways to tap into those areas.

    After so much positive response from the girls, I’m finally going to start an organization that will be a hub for more inspiring tools and resources for girls looking to explore their creative outlet and build their own community. Whether it’s through design, coding, visual storytelling, product development, entrepreneurism, etc.. there’s a world of opportunity to create somewhere for girls to connect and inspire each other. I would love to build a website really bring that essence to life.

    Few sites like this a) talk to young women b) are remotely aesthetically appealing or c) are intuitively designed, so I’d love to set that bar. Taking this class will help me create a beautiful, smart and engaging site that will help connect more girls to the possibilities that await them and their beautiful brains.

    I was able to see you chat at a Creative Mornings session and know that this could be an EXCELLENT way to get me started and inspired. So thanks for your consideration and thanks for all of your inspiration.

    Alissa says:

    I do communications for a small nonprofit which means I wear a lot of hats so I would love to take blogshop to better our website and emails!

    Suzannah says:

    I want to be a better blogger so I can show people how charming my city (Greenville, SC) is!

    Ashley Johnson says:

    There are so many things I would use it for… Creating great product shots for the etsy store I’m working on opening, developing a website for another new business I’m starting (which will have a blog component to it). Creating beautiful visuals to use for greeting cards, stationary and customized e-cards to send to friends and family.

    Right now I am working on an artistic map of my city that will be used to make a postcard for the welcome package for my cousin’s wedding, I certainly could use the tips and tricks you teach for this project. Yay blogshop!

    Virginia says:

    Hi Bri and Angela! I am a graphic designer and I am hoping to branch out on my own as a freelance designer in the future and I think that starting my own blog would really help. However for the last job I had I was using indesign and I would like to gain confidence in photoshop as well as learn time saving techniques and get inspired with you of course!
    Thanks! Kisses from Madrid.

    Hey yo, what an amazing opportunity to be an attendee of this class! I’ve been dying to get into BLOGSHOP so this would be stinking amazing! I am a fine art wedding photographer based in the Midwest and an amateur watercolor artist with a little print shop! I am eager to learn how to dress up my own personal blog (which I write on daily) and find out how to make my posts look snazzy while also applying the material to my little watercolor prints, it would be the best and I would soak up every ounce of info and instagram the crap out it! I think y’all are remarkable, so anything would be AMAZING.

    PICK ME! PICK ME! PRETTY, pretty please! 🙂

    Jessica says:

    I would use my new blogshop skills to get inspired for my own blog! I’ve been blogging since the beginning of this year and I want to make it into something I can do full time. From diy, prints and selling crafts, I want to do it all!

    Dang, yo. What wouldn’t I use it for! With my new blogshop skills I’d be able to create kick ass invitations and party decor for my kid’s parties, put all the other room mom’s tired flyers to shame at school, teach my son how to use it since he’s 8 and already using Illustrator for homework and we really like A’s.

    In all seriousness, the Blogshop skill set would help me take my blog in the direction it has been needing to go for some time. I first learned how to use Illustrator when doing commercial real estate and really only know extreme basics. I know enough from that to be able to navigate around Photoshop but have never learned anything more than really elementary photo editing. I took your social media class recently which really helped me in terms of looking at my overall brand. The ability to create custom graphics, that suit my style, would really help me set myself apart from the crowded online space in a way that is true to me and what I’m all about.

    Teisha Sturman says:

    I work for Torchlight Jewelry and I would LOVE to attend the Blog Shop. We do all of our own line sheets, advertising and website design and the skills we would learn at Blog Shop would be invaluable.


    Virginia says:

    Hi Bri and Angela! I’d love to take blogshop because I am a graphic designer and I am hoping to branch out in the near future as a freelance designer, I think that having my own blog would be a great start. I have knowledge of photoshop, however in my job I am only using indesign and I feel rusty. I’d like to gain confidence in photoshop as well as learning time saving tricks and get inspired with you of course!
    Thanks a lot!! Kisses from Madrid!

    Juan says:

    I own a beautiful little restaurant in a lovely island and am truly focused on improving our marketing strategy through social media and our website makeover. I’m pretty sure that learning photoshop (the creative way, please) would help a lot in this process.

    Thanks for this opportunity. And good luck to all the participants here!

    Dani says:

    I would use my new Blogshop skills to develop and weave my blog brand with my styling services brand! I have been dying to take Blogshop ever since you first started, and I’d absolutely love the opportunity to participate! 🙂

    I’ve always loved to write so 8 months ago, I started a blog. Since then, I’ve realized that (like it or not) I live in a world where most people prefer to look at pretty pictures rather than actually read a post. So, I’ve tweaked my plan a tad:

    1. Win this giveaway.
    2. Take the class and improve my skills in this area.
    3. Post ridiculously gorgeous photos and gain followers.
    4. Make followers realize that my writing is badass, too.
    5. Become a wildly successful writer/blogger.
    6. Quit my miserable day job and write until my little fingers can’t type anymore.

    Sound good? Help a sista out!

    This class is essential to improving my blog in that area to drive more traffic to it so that I can eventually quit my miserable day job and write fulltime. Unrealistic? Maybe. But that’s never stopped me before 😉

    Franziska says:

    I’m a style blogger (how many of those comments do you get?!) and have been blogging for 2 years now. I’m also in medical school, so I don’t have a lot of time to travel to a blogshop (even though I would love to attend, as one of my close friends has interned for you and has nothing to rave reviews about the experience), so getting to do it “from afar” would be a great opportunity for me to learn the basics I need to take my blog to the next level – or to at least understand how to use the photoshop that has been on my computer for over a year!

    Rebecca says:

    I stopped blogging just over a year ago, but I am keen to get back and have a new URL ready and waiting…just need to brush up my skills again so this would be perfect!

    My husband and I work on our blog together and I would love to freshen things up!

    Margaret says:

    I’ve been having a really difficult time finding a job after graduating 2 years ago. I moved back home to Germany and have been trying to get freelance work anywhere I can. After reading your blog for many years and constantly saying to myself that one day I will start a blog, I have finally decided to crack on. Being a perfectionist, it takes me forever until I am finally happy with my work. With the help of blogshop I know that I will learn the skills I need to make my blog dreams come true. Thanks for being such an inspiration to all of us!

    Maggie says:

    I’m a new blogger and would absolutely jump at the chance to really expand on my minimal Photoshop skills and make my blog posts POP!

    Natalie says:

    Having just been laid off, I’d love to up skill and make myself more marketable. Also, there’s no denying I’m one of the thousands of girls who have always wanted to start their own blog! No time like the present…

    Molly // tLp says:

    My blog could definitely use some sprucing up! I’d also love to learn how to make my posts more visually appealing.

    Autumn Hachey says:

    HI BRI! *waves*.

    I would absolutely DIE to win a blogshop session with you! I’m working in social media, with veeery little photoshop knowledge.. okay next to none. I’m obsessed with your blog and your style and I want to soak up your knowledge girl! Make me a photoshop master! One of my good girlfriends just started a killer fitness blog and I’d love to get on her team and help her out! I’ve always wanted to learn photoshop but couldn’t afford all the schooling and what not. I think with your guidance I could be pretty okay at it!

    *Crumples up entry* (That helps to get chosen sometimes ;))

    Love Aut.

    Carmen says:

    I would love to take the online blogshop because I want to start my own blog and shop sometime soon. I also currently work for a small company that I would love to help grow by creating a better and more approachable blog!
    I love this blog!!

    This would be a great way to help my blog get off the grown and help me to expand my knowledge towards the blogging world.

    Jessica Tate says:

    Hello! I would love to improve my skills. Even though I’m quite experience, I find even the simplest hints & tricks can completely change my workflow. Never stop learning!

    monica says:

    I definitely want to improve my mood boards, I do web design and find that mood boards help me communicate the concept better. Also, I love layout design! Excited about the possibility of winning a spot!!!

    laurie says:

    I’m an old dog in need of learning new tricks! Trained as a graphic designer in the days of cut and paste and a photographer in the days of film. Okay, film is hip again but let’s hope we never return to the days of cut and paste! I really need this to re-tool to start over again in my career after raising my daughter. Everything changed while I was being a mom! Great job you guys!

    Meghan says:

    I’m a graphic designer so I would put my skills back into my work. Ideally the workshop will give me some much needed inspiration and I’ll start creating for fun again.

    Sarah says:

    I’m an editor and would love to use Blogshop skills to design my own logo and make my website look more artistic. Online Blogshop would be awesome!

    Michelle says:

    I’m a recent marketing grad and need to know Photoshop! My university didn’t require any design classes and every marketing position is asking for the bare minimum!

    Casey Glover says:

    Hello 🙂

    My name is Casey and I am a 24 year old creative from Australia. I am an aspiring artist/craftswoman and have been interested in producing a blog for quite sometime, however I have never been able to see the idea through due to my demanding full time job and my lack of rad blogging skills. I have recently purchased Photo Shop CS 6, however I have no idea what-so-ever on how to use it, this combined with the fact that I have recently left my beige, unfulfilling and demanding corporate job means that I know have the time, energy and drive to get back into the areas of life which I am passionate about. I enjoy arts/craft/DIY and would like to be able to display my projects, ideas and tutorials online. I am also in the middle of financing a DSLR camera for this reason along with my other passion, photography. I love your blog and I follow you on Instagram and FB, even if I am not selected- thank you for inspiring me every time I see one of your posts.


    Casey xx

    Cristina says:

    hello everyone!
    i’m a architecture student who would love to change her career path into graphic design and photography. having a blog for the last few years helped me a lot to understand what i really want to dedicate to the most, exercise a lot and share my works (and bri, you’ve been such an inspiration!) but of course there are always some new skills to improve and i can’t wait to do it! it’s time for blogshop to come to italy!
    love, c.

    Casey Glover says:

    Ooops! I forgot to leave my tumblr handle, http://www.aliceglover.tumblr.com/ it’s not very good- as you can see I totally need this course hehe xx

    sheena says:

    Had a blog once upon a time that has been long since abandoned (becoming a new mommy can do that…). Been wanting to make a comeback and this workshop is the perfect thing to get me (re)started! 🙂

    Christine L says:

    I’ve been blogging for several months and have been reluctant to make the blog public because I’m lacking a lot of organization and design. I’m not a fan of any of the standard templates that are free/available to use and really want to give this blog a more personal touch. I’m pretty certain the blogshop will really enlighten me in getting out something catchy that compliments my content.

    Linda Sung says:

    I’m not a blogger and don’t know if I ever will be, but I’m a HUGE blog follower and am always inspired by the design aspect of the ones I follow (obviously this one included!). I think it plays into my passion for wedding/event design, so this class could really help me out in future business ventures. I’d love the chance to learn from the best!

    Brontë says:

    I have a fledgling art blog where I chronicle my life as a curator’s assistant and art history student. I would love to learn how to create beautiful images to compliment the lovely art I am rambling on about!

    Kadi says:

    As a budding entrepreneur, one of my biggest fears is opening a blank slate in Photoshop. How do I create materials that properly convey my personal philosophies and the services I’m offering? How do I ensure what I’m creating doesn’t look like a 3 year old got a hold of the mouse? If I’m completely honest with myself, it’s the biggest obstacle standing in my way to getting my business up and running… from website design to using Photoshop for the actual final product I want to offer… I’m terrified of that blank white screen. I need a boost! Confidence to put my fears behind me and get this thing started!

    Kathy says:

    I am a teacher at an elementary school and I am trying to find a way to reach my students in a way that takes their learning into the ‘real world.’ I think taking their learning online and creating a space for their work and learning to be on display is the best way to make that transition. I know taking blogshop would give me the skills and push I need to revolutionize our classroom! I hope I win so that all the kiddos can win! 🙂

    Kinjal says:

    I’m a student who’s absolutely in love with the blogging world. I’m really interested in sharpening my online skills and I’ve heard so many wonderful things about Blogshop. If I win I’ll use Blogshop to enhance my online portfolio, work on my personal blog, and make sure the pass the class along within my community! Thanks for such a great opportunity!

    Laurie says:

    I am just breaking into the wedding world and would love the opportunity to learn Photoshop. I currently have zero experience, so a crash course is much needed!!

    This is beyond amazing! First of all thank you for offering this chance!

    My name is Elle and I am a stressed out Singapore-based engineer who works up to twelve hours a day designing how to roll out fibreoptic cables so people can have a faster internet connection …and yes the job doesn’t demand much creativity. Every day was a flurry of routine and I found myself lacking not only a social life but a way for creative expression.I felt like I was drying up on the inside.

    So I started to blog this year because I need a creative outlet. My main creative outlets turned out to be Photography and Lettering.I know the value of having good photos on one’s blog but my Photoshop skills are basically non-existent. I would love to create moodboards and refine my calligraphy pieces. By winning a spot in the Blogshop class I believe it will help me tremendously to present my creative style in a better way.

    I have always been inspired by Bri and Angela’s creativity and passion and hope some of it will rub off on me through the Blogshop class!


    I would use this course to enhance my blogs photos and learn how to create professional looking collages. Thank you for the chance to win a spot in the course. I would be so excited to win!

    Elisha says:

    I’d love to use blog shop skills to update the website for the nonprofit I work for!

    Flannery says:

    I wanna get the photoshop skills to pay the bills!!!

    Brianna S. says:

    I’ve dabbled in blogging for a while now, but haven’t really gotten going because I feel so under-qualified. I would love to win and learn some skills!

    Molly says:

    I want the process of my blog to be second to my content. I hope taking this course can enable me to blog more often with ease and up the look of my overall brand.

    jamie says:

    I’ve wanted to start a blog for a while but I’m a perfectionist and need it to be super well done.

    Ruth says:

    I would use blogshop to make my wedding website a not corny/useful and fun experience for my guests 🙂

    Emi says:

    Where to start?…. Let me see, Internet was present in the most important moments of my life: I’m Argentinian, when I was 15 I fell in love with an Egyptian boy I knew through ICQ (coo, coo, remember?). After twelve years of being just online friends (yes, 12!) we met in person and confirmed we were soul mates. Of course it was not any easier. After crossing the world at least ten times, we decided to move together to a neutral country: Canada. Few months after landing in the freezing Toronto, my exotic love proposed to me, and we got married, with our families sharing the event in Skype. And here in Canada, I realized my dream and started my own small business of premium pet and pet-lover humans accessories with Etsy (I love animals, and part of my job is to organize fundraising events for animals shelters). Now is the moment to take my business one (big) step ahead and launch and great, GREAT blog…and of course, your online Blogshop class, specially the Photoshop skills, is all what I need. Will DLF and Internet be part of this new chapter of my life?? I wish so!!

    Cleshawn says:

    OMG! This is the only giveaway that I could ever hope to win. I mean I want it bad!! I would totally use my new Blogshop skills on my lifestyle blog http://www.hometohem.com ! I’ve been wanting to attend, especially since I’m so close in L.A. but it’s just something I couldn’t swing. Ugh! I need and reeeeeally want this! 🙂 !!

    xx/ http://www.hometohem.com

    Christina says:

    I’m a HUGE DLF fan. This blog has inspired me to learn how to make layouts that I started doing for free with GIMP. Now I have Photoshop and instead of mimicking what I love about other sites, I want tools to help me create my own style. Thank you for continuing to inspire me to be better. The workshops you offer are so professional and I’d love to be a part of one. Thank you!

    Oh, I would love to win! I printed out your “Bring it to your boss” PDF (and brought it to my boss), but we’re too tight on budget even for the online Blogshop! I’ve been running my blog for over 5 years, but I’m really looking to amp up my design skills. <3

    Jen Craft says:

    I would love to take blogshop at home so I can learn how to use my new macbook air and photoshop to create a gorgeous blog.

    julie says:

    I just started a personal finance blog and need some new skilz! I was just on your website to think about signing up…fingers crossed!

    Joannie says:

    Stop the 9 to 5 office routine and get skills to finally launch my little project of mine I’ve been working on for a while now. 🙂

    KSlots says:

    I would love to use some newly-honed skills on a brand new blog! And I could also use them day-to-day at work. Double win :)!

    Molly Q says:

    Thank you for putting on such a fun contest. I would use the lessons to enhance my photography and my blog. I am always trying to find ways to grow and this would be an opportunity to do that. Blogging has always been a struggle and knowing can always help. I am always approached to help people with their blogs and photos, it would be nice to be able to share some additional tips with them too!

    Joyce says:

    I have rudimentary photoshop skills but I really want to improve them! For both personal projects like holiday cards and for a little passion project thats in the works with my best friend!

    Christina says:

    I have been dreaming for a while now about attending Blogshop! i am a high school English teacher, and I have a vision of creating a teacher blog with interesting and innovative ways to make learning FUN! I see a major need in the education field for teachers to create sleeker classroom designs that are modern and aesthetically pleasing, and a need for teachers to have a creative space for collaboration and invention. I sincerely love working with students everyday to further their reading, analytical, and synthesizing abilities, and I plan on simply opening up a space of possibility for a cohort of teachers to join together to do the same.

    Lizzie says:

    I would like to improve my photoshop skills so that I can work more efficiently. I think blogshop would be a great intro to graphic design.

    First off all I wanna say that I just love the blog and all the tips that you guys give. I’m a brazilian girl from Rio de Janeiro and I live here. I work with photoshop every single day even when I am in my free time just for fun. I learned how to use it alone and never tooked any classes. I like to say that he is almost like my boyfriend and we have ours up’s and down’s. 🙂
    I work for a fashion website here as a designer and writer and I am starting my own company of fashion digital consult. This opportunity would help me grow my skills and do a wonderful job to my clients and myself.

    My company facebook: http://www.facebook.com/itclosetgroup
    Tumblr with collages: http://www.itclosetgroup.tumblr.com

    Thanks! 🙂

    Tiffany says:

    I would love to attend Blogshop and learn Photoshop! It’s so inspiring to come to this blog and see what is possible and what I can do if only I buckle down and learn the software. I’m a complete newbie at Photoshop and Illustrator and would love to enhance my skill set.

    I’m a communicator by trade, mostly falling into gigs with grassroots nonprofits. (The heart wants what it wants – and it wants to save the world!)

    With most of the organizations I’ve worked/volunteered with, the passion for the cause is there but the budget to create something really amazing isn’t. I’d love to be able to use the software I do have to create something amazing for some of the causes that I hold near and dear.

    Sonya says:

    If I was fortuitous enough to win the class I would use my new skills to revamp my site and put my developer skills to use 🙂

    Thank you!

    Leanne says:

    I’m a recently graduated graphic designer & am looking at ways to improve my skills in all platforms. I used to blog a lot but have lost the enthusiasm and I know this blog shop will spark inspiration again!

    Thank-you for the opportunity! Xx


    I would use photoshop to create homepage images for my website and create collages and enhance photos for my blog. Winning this would help me save money by creating homepage images myself.

    Rebecca says:

    I dream of attending Blogshop but live in NZ so the online course would be the perfect opportunity for me to upskill and finally start a blog of my own. I always talk about it but just need the push to do it. Also it would help me in my current role as well to take on more design based jobs.

    Jacqueline says:

    I’m a blogger and I would love to learn Photoshop so I could do some new layouts for posts, and maybe even try out new headers and sidebar buttons. I’ve recently become very interested in photography (ever since getting my first DSLR), and I’d love to learn more about editing to really take my pictures to a more professional looking level. Blogshop seems amazing and I’d love to try it out. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Justine says:

    My husband and I have been business planning all night, would love to use Blogshop skills to give a swift kick in the butt to move forward!

    erin says:

    As a current blogger who’s looking to take her blog to the next level, I’d love to attend Blogshop to punch up my pictures! I know the basics of PS Elements, but would love to learn the ins and outs + tips and tricks of Photoshop!

    Kerry says:

    I have my own small business and am just starting to doodle designs to expand into a store – this would be amazing to get to do at this time! I also run social media as another side job and my bosses would probably be super excited if I could do photoshop work. Fingers crossed!! xoxo

    Nadine says:

    I would love to learn more photoshop and tablet skills so I can have the confidence to start my blog!

    amy says:

    I’ve got some photoshop skills already, and I took a ton of classes on web design in college (I’ve done all the work on my own blog, and on my boyfriend’s website), but if I won the blogshop at home class, I’d really be able to improve my little baby blog, make my boyfriend’s website even better, and help my father-in-law develop his business’ web presence. I know what I want my blog to look like…but I just don’t have enough skill to really accomplish what I want to. I’ve been dreaming of taking blogshop since I first heard of it on pinterest like two years ago and the chance to win would really help a girl out 😉

    Manda says:

    I’ve wanted to start a blog for awhile now, so I think that this class would give me that creative boost to finally take the plunge and feel confident that I can make my blog look amazing!

    Kayleigh says:

    As a fashion and retail studies major, all photoshop classes and advice help with not only ideas to be more creative but to also enhance career skills! I would be such a wonderful treat to win this giveaway and be inspired by your blogshop!

    Gabriela says:

    I want to start my own business but I need the skills to make my vision into reality.

    Katie says:

    I am a new photographer set to launch my business in the fall. I have been second shooting at a handful of weddings, styled shoots, and photographing friend’s families in exchange to use the images in my portfolio. I want to learn photoshop to create beautiful layouts on the “journal” section of my site after I shoot a wedding, styled shoot, family portrait session, etc. and launch my site/portfolio with the cleanest branding/posts possible. I have so much to learn!

    Maggie says:

    As a graphic design major and fashion lover, I think it would be extremely helpful to start my own blog. I have always wanted to attend a blogshop, but I haven’t had the time or money as a student. It would also be a big help to see the business side of graphic design in play. It would be a huge help and lovely experience!

    Cassie says:

    I’ve heard lovely things about Blogshop! I would love to have the opportunity to check it out for myself. I have a quirky little blog and would love to learn new techniques to continue to improve my site. xo

    Stacey says:

    I have always wanted to attend blogshop. I live in Melourne, Australia and have been following Design Love Fest for over 3 years now. I always wish I lived in the US so I could take part. Doing it online would be amazing!! I have a blog, but always looking for ways to make it more beautiful.

    Morgan says:

    This is a totally dream offer! My husband and I have a family business, Rugged and Fancy. It’s a lifestyle initiative. We are launching an online store alongside an existing blog to share great things in the world. Blogshop would finalllllllly help me gain a certain set of skills that we just missed out on in our education. I want to improve our layouts and content presentation. I have a mature vision of what I want Rugged and Fancy to look like, I just need to know how to use the tools! Isn’t that such a modern dilemma? Or was it the modern dilemma five years ago?
    Morgan Johnston, Rugged and Fancy

    Kerry says:

    I’m not a big blogger, but I would love to apply some blogshop skills to my non-profit job. we are a bit stodgy and old-fashioned, both IRL and in our online presence, and could use a big shot of creativity!

    dominique says:

    my husband and i have a blog that we do together. it’s so much fun to have a project that we share but i’d love to be able to do some of the design work too! our blog is about thoughtful living and we focus on fairly traded, ethically sourced and life impacting brands. this fall is our 2 year blog birthday and my goal is to be able to post three times a week. understanding photoshop and being able to do some of the design work would make that more of a possibility. thanks so much for this opportunity.

    Chelsea says:

    I’m currently on my third try starting a blog and more often than not I stop posting because I can’t figure out an easily updatable template that looks and does exactly what I would like it to. I have a unique voice and interesting ideas I’d love to get out there. I truly believe an amazing website design is the key and utilizing Blogshop at home will really allow me to create exactly what I’ve always wanted in a site. I’m a whiz at Illustrator from my job as a fashion designer, I’m surprisingly proficient at Dreamweaver and I love all social media platforms (@chelseapvrcella). I feel like Photoshop is my final frontier! Please make my design dreams come true- I’d love to be a Blogshop success story!

    Brianne Sheppard says:

    What I wouldn’t give for his! I am just starting out my photography business up here in canada, and am taking the time to get all of my ducks ie. branding, editorial content and sample shootins all lined up before launching and this would be the icing on a delicious cske

    Cara says:

    Not only would I like to further support my own personal blogging habit (where I’m sharing my sewing skills with the world) but I want to help two friends of my with their new business. Over ten years ago I was very proficient with coding and editing, but I’m afraid high school beat it out of me (it wasn’t cool!!) and I really want to reinvest in something I had a passion for but was too afraid to persue!

    Deanna says:

    So many entries! What I feel sets mine apart would be that I have not only the passion to blog but the drive. I am always trying to find ways to learn and improve all skill sets that will help out my blog. I strive for quality content and I feel blogshop would offer the opportunity at just that. I adore designlovefest and all that it offers and represents! Please pick me!


    LaurenPenn says:

    I would love to finally begin blogging. I have wanted to since I started college, but couldn’t find time to schedule it in, and make it look exactly the way I wanted it too. Well now I have officially graduated as of three weeks ago, I have 5 months off before I begin portfolio school, and it’s the perfect time for me to begin my blog journey!

    cielo says:

    oh, I would ADORE getting picked for this… I’m a new mom, recent graduate, and really want to refresh my Etsy shop (linked in my name!) and make things look the way I idealize them in my head (bright, fun, colorful) versus what I’m actually able to produce (dark, moody, out of focus). I’m such an admirer of both of your work and would love to be a part of this but definitely need the guidance to make it all happen. As a new mom, being able to access this course online, over the weekend, while the baby is napping would be so, so ideal. I hope you’ll consider me for one of the spots!

    emmie says:

    Such a thoughtful giveaway! I write a weekly shopping guide for a local online magazine and blog & would love to offer more inspirational original content. It would be great to bring some blogshop smarts to the rest of the staff.
    thanks! xx

    I would love to learn more about Ps through a bloggers perspective and with the incredible style and insight of the DLF team.

    Annette says:

    What a treat this is! As far as my current Photoshop skills are concerned, I’m a proud graduate of Google University. Although I’ve managed to pick up quite a bit on my own, I’m probably not using it as effectively as I could be. Learning from you lovely ladies would help take my jewelry business and blog to the next level! Thank you!

    Anna says:

    I would love to learn more about Photoshop to improve the overall look of my photography and blogposts. Thank you!

    vivian says:

    i would love to take the online class to improve my photoshop skills as well as become more efficient in my workflow for my blog. i’m a stay at home mom, so it’s hard for me to justify spending the money on the course, but i’ve been wanting to take it for so long!

    Charmaine says:

    I would love to learn how to use photoshop! I’ve been following blogs I’ve admired for years. Blogshop online would be a way for me to finally start a blog of my own!

    I’m a newbie to blogging and have been using pic monkey and polyvore but I think it’s time to upgrade and learn some new tricks. To get an opportunity to do Blogshop online will help me take my blog to a whole new level! Thanks.

    Tess says:

    Reason’s why I’d love to attend Blogshop online: 1) I quit my job in Marketing and am starting my own business as a stylist and personal organizer and need to know how to make my photos Grade A quality. 2) I have a crush on Bri (I’m a woman happily married to a man, but you know, I can still have a crush.) Both reasons are equally important to me. 😉 Thanks!

    Kristin V says:

    I would use my Blogshop skills to take my new photography business further! I would also like to add appeal to my corresponding blog. 🙂

    Ingrid says:

    I am in the process of creating my own website and I am in need of some photoshop skills. I want things to look nice!

    Alice says:

    I know a little Photoshop but would love to learn more, since I’m starting a website soon!

    roxana says:

    I’m going to launch my bag collection soon and it would be nice to have the skills to create beautiful images to promote them, too. I took a Photoshop class in the past, but Blogshop looks more fun and creative and I’d love to take part in it.

    bet says:

    I’m architect and I love your blog. I’m inspired by you so much. I discovered your blog 3 years ago, just when I was preparing my final project. Since then I visit your blog every day, I like the nice, fresh and happy way you express.

    I think I already learn from you. Your course will help to improve my architectural presentations and my portfolio.

    Thank you,


    Hi I’m Allison from England, doing this course would be life changing!
    I have been trying to get my head around Photoshop for years!
    I’ve tried evening classes/books/YouTube all with brain scrambling failure,
    Ian trying to promote my online presence for my start up business:
    http://www.facebook.com/Allisonmakesstuff, I graduated in fashion design
    Back in 2003 when Photoshop wasn’t taught as it should have been, I would
    Cherish this chance to learn and grow,
    yours hopefully

And, if yo ever take your show on the road here to Cape Town, I promise I’ll attend in-person, too 😉

    I’m a graphic designer from South Africa & I have no local mentors. I follow you religiously & have improved my social media skills by your example. I would <3 to learn more (I'm so hungry for more info) so I can impliment it on my website (currently being redesigned) & my social platforms as I own my own studio 'INKgesteld'. I love what I do & I would like to share it with the world! Thanks for the opportunity, Chantelle ~ INKgesteld

    HelenS says:

    I am an artist, a teacher,and a jewelry designer and need help making my blog look professional. I have a tablet and photoshop and while I know basic usage, I would love to know your tips and tricks.

    Stevie-Ella says:

    I have a blog and I’d love to make the posts look as polished as they are in my head! Plus, I’m working on getting a new site set up with a friend and it would be great if we could get it off to a flying start with blogshop’s help!

    Stephanie says:

    I would love to use my blogshop skills to bring some extra piazza to my blog and help with my new business website!

    Alice says:

    Hello there! My sister Doris and I run a little Greeting Card company called Ilootpaperie <3 on the side. I've long had a crush on your – well everything! I think images and text totally should make out – most of my doodles are accompanied by a hand scrawled caption – or sometimes an excuse ~_~ or explanation of sorts. Which makes I guess greeting cards a bit of the perfect outlet for my sister and I's shared creativity! We're little and chuggin' along but feel perhaps with the right push in content and know how – with a bit of the Blogshop magic dashed in – we could take a branding to the next level and figure out how to create an escape from our day jobs (or the need for one – as I am currently unemployed). Thanks for reading (brevity isn't my strong suit) and thank you for the opportunity. xo Ilootpaperie Paperbandits, Alice & Doris

    Laura says:

    Hi! I would love to win the Blogshop to study at home as I would love to revamp my blog! I’d like to get the balance of blogging about my business and my life style right as I’ve just had a baby so juggling everything can be hard! I just adore Design Love Fest and I can’t think of a better place to learn how to improve my blog 🙂 xxx

    Jodie says:

    I would use my Blogshop skills to create more with my own photos, to follow through on my vision.

    Megan says:

    I would love to win one of those open spots! I have a small photography business and really need a helping hand when it comes to getting comfortable with blogging about it. I have a website – just not much knowledge on how to make it look great!

    Tasha Miller says:

    Yay! Your best giveaway yet!

    I would love to take blogshop to develop a skill set to help bring what is inside me to the outside world via my blog! I’m just quit my nine year career as a flight attendant to move to Tokyo – and I’d like to find a beautiful way to connect with friends at home and new friends here and abroad through blogging. I think blogs are the perfect touchstone to help us stay connected, get inspired, and push ourselves creatively 🙂

    Marina says:

    Hey! I would really love to win a blogshop spot so I could learn the skills I’m missing to make my blog look lovely and not be embarassed of it. the last 2 years I have a hidden kinda blog with a friend of mine but we don’t have the courage to spread the word for it because we are not very confident about it! I’m sure blogshop will help us a lot!!

    Una says:


    I am a student/ avid (albeit amateur) photographer currently in talks for starting my own postcard company. Would love the chance to attend your blogshop for some tips!

    Hello!!! Oh, thank you for this awesome gift! I wish I could win the at home one as I live in Europe as a SAHM now. I need to learn more about photoshop as I need to enhance some garments and accessories I want to sell. I surely know that if my pictures were better, my blog and my shop would be more succesful.
    Than you so much from Paris, the city of light and city of love – as they said ^_^

    Thank you for sharing your talents and offering such a great opportunity ! I’m always looking for opportunities to better my skills, so this would be invaluable. In addition to my blog, I just opened a small e-shop for paper lovers and I want to create a dedicated page for my new business, a kind of mini site to better present my world; a business card online somehow. A fresh look like yours would be for me a great inspiration to move faster in the creation of my new site !

    Elisa says:

    I run my family’s small business. We sell jewelry and accessories…and I know that with improved photoshop skills I can take my business to the next level! Thank you for the opportunity!

    laura says:

    I would love to win and improve my blog. I moved to Germany and am currently working on making my blog bilingual. I also finally go a new camera so this would be the perfect opportunity to learn. Keeping my fingers crossed 😉

    Sarolta says:

    I’ve already signed up for the upcoming Blogshop at home – but boy, would I celebrate if I got refunded. I am a designer and blogger but I could use some tricks to catch up some speed. And that is exactly what Blogshop seems to provide to designers. Shortcuts and good ideas how to make things look good easily. I’m so excited!

    i am a small business owner that needs to get back into my blog! i have totally neglected it. i think taking this class would be the perfect way to boost my skills and bring my blog back out into the world – looking better than ever!

    it’s important for me to put my best foot forward, and blogshop would be the best way to get started doing that!

    Stella says:

    My two friends and I are starting a blog together. This would be a great experience to learn how to make dynamic images!

    Carmen says:

    I want to do what makes me happy, and that is to be a full-time photographer. This blogshop would help me on how to present my work to the world. 🙂

    Amanda says:

    Woohoo! What an awesome opportunity! This would be great, especially since I live in Beijing! I’d use my new skills to spruce up my blog!

    Courtney Kokus says:

    I’m a small business owner as well as a writer/blogger. My husband also owns a bike shop which I help manage. I use Photoshop almost everyday and I’m dying to take your course so I can save time and enjoy my kiddos more!

    Stephanie C says:

    I would love to take blogshop as a refresher. I took the online course once and LOVED it, but to go through it one more time would really solidify my skills! I want to be able to use blogshop skills to build a business. I want to link women with their dream careers, whether those careers are in leadership or startups. I need to be able to visually draw people in and create materials to put people on a path to success!

    Laura says:

    I’m trying to start a new business and I know a blog would help. I’d love to learn any tips and tricks you have to make that blog successful!

    Paula says:

    Hey! I would REALLY love to take this course, as Phothoshop has always been so difficult for me. Besides, I am planningu the launch of my blog and I would love to learn this skills to make good looking blog posts? Thank you for this!

    Tess says:

    I’m a mamma/interior designer trying to launch my own company & blog. Attempting to be creative and professional with limited Photoshop skills is frustrating!! And of course with ‘totally awesome’ as my branding parameters… I am in need of some help! Gah!

    EM. Halliburton says:

    I’ve been wanting to go to Blogshop since the very beginnin! This would be such a treat, second only to going in person. I’m trying now to pull together resources to start a small press, and making my (cobbled-together, google-sourced) Photoshop skills more efficient would help me so much with achieving the identity I have in mind.

    I would love, love, love to attend Blogshop if you were to ever to do it in Nashville again. I’d really love the at home version as well for going at my own pace though. I would use my Blogshop skills to amp up my blog, which is kind of… meh, right now. I’d love to just know these skills for future endeavors, such as websites for film, photography, and even a small business I dream of one day owning. I’d just love to soak that knowledge in. 🙂

    Jasna says:

    I would love to win this as I need it to perfect my skills. I am from Serbia and I have started my blog in January, being one of a very few “mommy” bloggers in the country. I have a clear vision of what I want my blog to become but I do need a bit of help :-). “It takes a village to raise a child” – well, it also take a village of experienced bloggers to raise a new one, I would say 🙂


    Sarah says:

    I made the mistake of not following my heart at school and went for the “practical” degree. Now, a “professional” with a 9 – 5, I am realizing the cost of being creatively unfulfilled…but it is never too late! I am beginning to develop new outlets for my free time and learning Photoshop is on the top of my list!! Thanks so much for this opportunity 🙂 There is no time like the present!

    Fiona says:

    I’m a freelancer and would love to use the skills to build up my web presence. 🙂

    Tiffany C. says:

    What an awesome opportunity! I produce a blog, webseries and other content for savvy parents with cool kids. My twin sons are the face of the brand and host all videos and are featured in all of the content! I’d use the skills from this class to spice up web content for the website and my third party clients (family magazines, blogs + kids clothing brands). PICK ME!

    Magdalena says:

    I run a small vintage shop on Etsy, but would love to be able to have my own website. This would a an incredible opportunity…I wish I could go to one of your workshop, but currently I am not able to afford it 🙁 Keeping my fingers crossed!!!

    Love what you do!

    Joanna Buczkowska says:

    I want to refresh my photoshop skills to build a new personal blog about social entrepreneurship!!!

    I’d love to use Blogshop to create beautiful posts for my blog. I’m going on an 11 month mission trip to 11 countries and I’d love to give posts about them the beauty they deserve.

    Sofia says:

    I’m a recent grad and I have this dream of starting my own small business. Because I’m just starting out I know I’ll be doing a lot of the work myself and uping my Photoshop and design skills can make all the difference in helping me put my best food forward.

    Parker says:

    I would love to start my own online business and this could give me the start to make that happen!

    Michaela Klein says:

    What a great giveaway! I’ve been meaning to revamp my blog to stay more motivated creatively as well as showcase some of my personal and freelance work. I also think it would be a great way to share my interests with others and start a dialogue with like minded people and hopefully learn more about what other creatives are up to.

    Sarah Huby says:

    I’d love to win a spot – I’d like to restart my sadly neglected blog with a new look. I’m also a creative artworker so additional photoshop skills would be really beneficial!xx

    Kristen Carr says:

    I would love to win a spot!! I just barely bought Photoshop and I am looking to learn more about how to use it to my best ability in order to make my blog as pretty as yours one day. I would like to think that I try to stay well rounded. I study electrical engineering by day and blog and play with Photoshop by night so this would be perfect to explore more of my creative side!

    Kat Freedman says:

    Hi there! I would love to pump up my blog to make it awesome like yours!

    Summer says:

    I would use blogshop to refresh my photoshop skills. I’ve been in theories of starting a blog but I am learning I need help transforming my vision onto my blog. The years of not designing anything have made me a little rusty but I have always loved blogshop!!

    Daphne says:

    Call it creepy, but I love watching type and images make out! I’m a novice illustrator and would love some help translating my paper doodles to the blog world.

    I would use Blogshop to add to my growing list of Photoshop skills and make my blog about more than just my photography business!

    Flo says:

    I’m a marketing professional who wants to start a blog in my personal world. I need the skills to make my blog professionally fun to impress colleagues from my day job while allowing me to explore my passions! <3

    Palma says:

    I am starting my business and want to learn as much as I can! I am in the Dominican Republic so attending the classes proves difficult for me. Online blogshop sound great!

    Reema says:

    i’m a photographer and a super visual person who just really needs to revamp my blog and site! i would use blogspot to help refresh my blog so that it reflects my photos and my work better. right now it’s a pretty sad space.

    Emma Kate says:

    There are just no words but this: Blogshop is calling my heart. I live and breathe design, but doing Blogshop would be such a kickstarter for manifesting + chasing down my big dream: launching the prettiest stationery brand you could imagine. Merci + fingers crossed. Emma Kate x

    Emily says:

    I would love to take your online BlogShop, as I am trying to open my own online store, and help my brother as he works towards opening his brewing company, and BlogShop would be in great in teaching me ways to effectively market online!! Thanks so much!

    Lucie says:

    I’m a freelance web developer that is fascinated by design but cannot use photoshop or illustrator for the life of me. I want to learn so bad!! To win this class would be so great 🙂

    Taylor says:

    Um I would LOVE to take this class! I’m a just poor student with big dreams, a blog, and a life to share. And you’re kind of my design muse. I would love to learn from you (even if it is online)! xx

    Julia says:

    I would love using my new blogshop skills to make my own personal blog look more beautiful and creative, and also to improve my freelance design and web development portfolio.

    Emily says:

    I would love to learn & know more about how to make my photos look professorial and creative. Blogshop seems like a wonderful experience whether it’s online or at home!

    I’ve been a follower of this blog for a long time now and I’ve always thought Blogshop looks the most enjoyable workshop ever. As I’m from Spain and flying to one of these amazing courses of yours is out of the table (for now :P) I’ve been considered joining the online version since you released it, so this is the perfect occasion! I’d love to learn from you, as you seem really nice and focused tutors. I love your style and what you do, and I would love to learn from you so I could use my new skills to create my personal image and brand online with your knowledge and my personal taste, as I’m starting a photography blog and want to start freelancing for small projects.

    tiffany says:

    I would love to have the opportunity to take this class! I am currently a student so money is understandably tight but am actually in the midst of starting a blog AND a small business (health consultant)…needless to say I am in a little over my head right now! Learning photoshop would be invaluable to my business development while decreasing my overhead expenses and would be a wonderful, transferable skill to benefit my blog!. Thanks so much!

    Chelsea says:

    We are a boutique stationery company — keen to learn new skills that will help make our little passion project bloom into bigger, beautiful things!! We love your wok and have been followers/admires for a long time! Thank you for the opportunity!

    Tosha says:

    I am a photographer and LOVE pretty things….so I’d love to learn to make my website and blog pretty! Thank you for the opportunity! xx

    Hana says:

    How nice! I really enjoy every post of yours, especially because most of the things you post about are a little bit out of my comfort zone and when I read them I always feel the drive to do things differently from what I am used to. Blogshop will be the best thing that happened to my blog since it’s beginning and my photos will be incredibly happy that I finally manage to make from them what they deserve. Anyway it shall be, I thank you for the very creative space that you have here on your blog.

    nora says:

    I’m a photographer/online person on my own, and professionally am a digital media communications person, so anything to sharpen my skills is always helpful! I work at small nonprofit, so it’s not always within budget to be able to sign up for courses. I’d love to be able to take part!

    cait says:

    I’d LOVE to win Blogshop! Sharpening my design skills would boost my blog to another level and help my post designs tremendously.

    Giulia says:

    I’m a French fashion grad living in Los Angeles. First of all, I love your aesthetic and your work. Congrats on everything you’re doing. I would love to take this class because as you well know in creative industries like fashion, image is very important and Photoshop is becoming a true necessity for my work these days. I’m planning to go back to Paris and launch a collaborative blog with a group of friends, and this course could be the kick-starter to creating amazing visual content!
    Thanks for the opportunity and I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

    Charley says:

    I would live to take my photoshop skills to the next level with blog shop online. I live on an island so the online course would be a great fit!

    I would LOVE to kick up my graphic design to the next level, and I feel like my limited knowledge of photoshop is holding me back, I woul LOVE LOVE LOVE to take the online course 🙂 Images are so critical for bloggers in communicating messages. They drive traffic, provide inspiration, and can connect people with similar aesthetics. It’s be BOMB to get to take the course 🙂

    Nana says:

    I own a small business and want to start a blog so learning the skills would be such a big help. I am from Argentina so this online course is perfect. Thank you so much for the chance. Fingers crossed!!!

    Meg says:

    I’m a freelance social media marketer – and run a blog of my own on the side. I’d love to use blogshop to freshen up not only myspace, but my clients’ too! xx

    carina says:

    hi bre and angela, this is a great opportunity because my friends and I want to create a blog but we don’t know a lot of photoshop, HTML, how to improve our blog, etc.
    so tank´s for this amazing giveaway tat i want to win so much 😀

    Amy says:

    Create a MEDIA KIT for my travel blog! Just returned from my first press trip so I need to get all my business in order!

    Kate Simmons says:

    I’ve been a dedicated blogger for nearly 4 years, and it’s time to take things up a notch! I’m also a collage artist who would love to use Photoshop techniques to bring a new dimension to my work. It’s time to buckle down and learn Photoshop, and I would be so grateful for the opportunity!

    Adri says:

    I have been wanting to take your class! Since I do have a blog, it would be nice to learn some new tricks and tips. But I want to use it for some branding purposes too!
    xo Adri

    Kate says:

    I would be so so grateful to be chosen as a winner for the at home Blogshop! I’m a recent (and broke!) architecture grad who knows the basics of Photoshop, but I want to go into graphic design and styling, and I’d feel more confident to do so with a “formal” class under my belt. I’ve been wanting to start a blog for a long time.. but there’s a fear there. Blogshop would help me face those fears and as you say on the site, jump right into it!

    Bitty says:

    I’m a blogger and content creator for a small designer resale boutique. I would absolutely love to learn tips and tricks from you guys on Photoshop and blogging in general. You are like blog gurus and I am young grasshopper. Everything you touch turns to pure gold, and I love gold.

    Thanks for the opportunity. Your giveaways are always the very best.

    Sydney says:

    I just applied for a position as a Social Media Coordinator and would love to learn more tricks of the trade–plus, it just looks like so much fun!

    Jenn J. says:

    I have my own small biz and would love to get educated on tips to creating beautiful pieces. It sure doesn’t hurt that I’m a big fan of what you do!

    Becca says:

    I would love to use the class for my baking blog! I purchased photoshop several months ago and KNOW I am not taking full advantage of it. As my styling skills get better, I want my editing skills to follow the same upward curve – would love to learn!

    Kayla says:

    I’d love the opportunity to take a blogshop course for career purposes and branding. Also – Im challenging myself to learn 5 new skills this summer and Photoshop is on my list! Fingers crossed! xo, K.

    Jess Boland says:

    Help! My blog is about a year old and I’m gaining skills like crazy and my courage is high. However, Photoshop intimidates the heck out of me so I always opt to edit my photos in the iphoto program that came with my mac. I could do better, I will do better so I need to sit down and listen to fellow creative people that can explain photoshop in a way I understand. I’ve really loved your adventures and growth as a company and brand over the last few years i’ve been reading. Especially with the honesty of being nervous when first offering the blogshop classes. Way to go!

    Jillian says:

    I am a fashion student and intern that has not quite found her niche in the industry. I have been painting and drawing and taking classes since I was little and I know in my heart that I need to find a career that combines my love for creativity and art as well as fashion. I have visions that I am not able to use interning in a fashion closet of a magazine. So I need to start now, I need to create a blog/portfolio of my art and my photos and they also have to have a punch. I believe that by taking the blogshop class, my blog and my photos would have something that other students applying for internships would not. The next internship that I apply for, I’d like it to be more in the direction of a fashion photo internship and my dream is to intern for Free People next summer. The application is due by January and to apply for the photo internship I would also submit my blog link/portfolio. I think this class could help me tremendously in figuring out what I want to do with my career, building a portfolio to get there and standing out in this ever so competitive industry that I am entering in. I would be so lucky to get this opportunity and I would take full advantage of it.

    Vina says:

    I would love to take the Blogshop course but it’s always been financially impossible, so this contest is really exciting! I’m in charge of designing the publicity materials for my non profit’s global initiative. Learning these important Photoshop skills would be such an asset for the project and would inspire new creative designs and visions to bring the project and it’s social media/branding to life.

    Logan says:

    I’ve been playing around with the idea of starting a blog for awhile now. Social media has always been a huge part of my life and I even intern for a few companies in that department. I find myself wanting to join in on multiple blog courses and finally get the gears rolling, but financially I’m not able to support it. This would be a great opportunity for me to finally get the blog show on the road and start creating my own successes!

    Hi DLF! I’m a resident right here in LA (Venice, to be specific). I’m in the process of transitioning from being a full-time prop stylist at a very corporate company (ICK!) to a work-for-myself “prop stylist/interior designer/furniture refurbisher/BLOGGER” (that’s a mouthful!) The name of my brand is Frances Loom, and while I know the basics of Photoshop, I’m looking for more help in design direction in getting all of this launched. I would just be all sorts of sparkly if I could win an entry into this. CHEERS & GIRL POWER!

    Tiffany B. says:

    Hi Bri! I would love to take the at home class (I have a pc)! I am a small business owner and I want to improve Photoshop skills. I would love to learn more from you & your best tips & tricks (which I know you have). Thanks for the giveaway!

    Frenchy says:

    I love photoshop, I want to get serious about blogging and take my blog to the next level, also I would use it to help kickstart my online business this year.

    Amy V says:

    I would la la love to win this! I have solid basic photoshop knowledge but would like to build on that with layers and graphics, as well as hone in on what my aesthetic is so that I can create a strong portfolio and blog 🙂 Great giveaway!

    I am HUGE fan of Blogshop! You do such a great job of inspiring us creatively via social media and your website, I can’t imagine all benefits one can reap from your online class. It would be such a great way to spice up my newly launched website and make it really speak to my audience. I know the basics of Photoshop, but have always wanted to discover more! I really hope I can use this opportunity as a positive stepping stone for my site. Thank you for this opportunity!

    Mellary says:

    I love to see others tips and tricks in photoshop! Especially with editing photos etc. 🙂

    I am desperately trying to start up an online women’s magazine called To & Fro Magazine. I have gotten a lot of amazing input, but I don’t feel that I have the skills required to produce high quality content. I know that for this site to work I need my images to look clean and fresh, I just need the Photoshop skills to do it! Attending Blogshop has always been my dream, but I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to finance it. Help me learn and grow! x

    Being able to have the opportunity to be in a blogshop class would be absolutely amazing! I am an art student and am interested in becoming a designer, while also incorporating journalism in my work. I would love to create my own content, like logos and personalized stationary, while also learning how to properly edit and arrange photos. I also run a blog, and I think establishing my own content would be a great way to share my personal style with the world! Thanks so much for this amazing opportunity! 🙂

    I’ve been dying to come to Blogshop forever, and now that there’s an online option I’m dying even more! I’d love to improve my Photoshop skills to up my game on my blog — they’re so in need of it!

    Sandi says:

    I’m so inspired by the BlogShop team and would love an opportunity to refresh my skills as well as get new perspectives and ideas on blogging. My family owns a business, which I have recently returned to working in full time, and I would love an opportunity to get fresh, engaging ideas to bring to our blog. I’m really focusing in on finding new ways to packaging our content since tires and automotive isn’t always the most exciting to read about and I think I could take away some great ideas from a seminar like Blogshop! Thank you for hosting a generous contest!

    Jessika says:

    With blogshop I would love to sharpen my current photoshop skills to create better looking graphics for my blog and blog posts. I could also use it for my job where I sometimes need to create and update flyers in photoshop! I’m looking forward to seeing who the winners are! Thank you for the prizes DLF & Blogshop 🙂 xo – Jessika

    Jordan says:

    I’d love to get back into blogging and this would be just the push I need. Would love a crash course for inspiration and motivation.

    Laura says:

    Oh wow! I would use my new skills for my blog! I’ve been blogging for almost 2 years, and using photoshop pretty much the whole time, but I’ve never taken a class or had any formal training on it. I just bought and jumped right into to using it and tried to teach myself as I went. I do all my own omages, logo, design, (everything!)for my blog, and I know I could do prettier, better work if I just understood Photoshop and could learn from a pro! I have been dying to attend Blogshop ever since I found out about it, and even more so lately because I’m trying to grow and monetize my blog – we’re about to go through some career/income changes that would make any extra little bit of money so helpful. I would be crazed with excitement and happiness if I could attend Blogshop, and even post a video of myself happy dancing!

    I am wanting to start a new blog and I would love to learn more about photoshop and how to make my blog stand out!

    Kait says:

    I’ve always wanted to take your BlogShop class! I would love to brush up on my Photoshop skills – I haven’t taken a class since I graduated from art school in 2009 and have been winging it with the updates ever since!

    Aida says:

    I want to be a blogger and I want to do it right. I’d love to learn from your experience and put it all in my new blog when it starts existing out of my head 🙂

    Mallory says:

    I have been dying to take a blogshop class for over a year now! I am an etsy shop owner, and am hoping to launch a website and blog to go along with it (and eventually replace it). Blogshop is exactly what I need to get my butt in gear!

    Ariel says:

    I have a new blog that I’d love to brush up some skills for! Blogshop would totally motivate me to fix up my website and create great stuff for it!

    I am a relatively new fashion blogger and I’m always a tiny bit disappointed with what I’m able to create for my site. I would LOVE to improve my Photoshop skills so that I can have a better shot at making the beautiful things that are in my head come across just as beautiful in real life!

    Meghan says:

    Boosting my blogging skills for sure. Looking to start a new blog that is educationally based, but that carries a light, well designed, creative feel that pulls off the exact opposite of outdated. Blogshop would also give me the perfect reason to get it going now! No more procrastination. xxx

    Sofia says:

    I work with entrepreneurs of all ages. They all have great products and services but unfortunately as their pictures don’t come out in a professional way they have a hard time selling them online or working in a strategy that involves the social networks. Improving my Photoshop skills will definitely help me to help them and me of course :)) Thanks for this amaaaaaazing opportunity!

    mina palk says:

    Since I’m from Greece it’s difficult for me to attend a blogshop class (although I’d really love to!)Online blogshop would be perfect to improve my photoshop skills so i could finally join the blogging community with my own architectural, interior design blog!

    Cristina Burdo says:

    I’m from Italy and I’m planning to start my own business so I’m sure that your Blogshop can help me to know better how to use Photoshop and how to build a good blog. Grazie mille! 🙂

    Alexandria says:

    My best friend and I are in the middle of starting up our first blog. We would learn so much from Blogshop @ home!

    Anna says:

    I would love to win a place so I can make my blog so much nicer. I’ve actually shut it down at the moment to work on a redesign and take some time to be more inspired, as a busy mum I don’t always get the time and money to do the extra things that I’d like to and have not been able to afford your course when it’s headed to London! I would absolutely love this opportunity! Anna x

    Alison says:

    Not only am I a co-blogger with a blogshop alumna but I am also a small business owner. There is always room to learn more and freshen up the look of our blog not to mention I am trying to get my small business off the ground while working a day job to pay the bills for my husband and I as he finishes grad school. I would so love to be able to attend but we haven’t found the money tree just yet. 🙂 Thanks for teaching and sharing!

    Kimberly says:

    I started a business with my partner last summer selling vintage and handmade home goods. We started with an Etsy shop and recently began sharing shop space with a couple other businesses here in New Orleans too. Blogshop would be a huge benefit to me as I continue to expand our Etsy shop, update our website, work on our marketing materials and start on our blog (which is in its infancy). I’d love to have the skills to make those areas shine for us.

    Jen says:

    I would use Blogshop to make my website more professional, learn how to edit my product images, and create high-quality blog posts! I have learned everything on my own by googling (not always accurate) and I’d love to learn how to do things properly from the pros. Thanks!

    I love love the designlovefest aesthetics and content! I love design, flowers and my business is taking the first steps and it’s always nice to learn even more photoshop skills and from you would be so awesome!:)

    Jocelyn says:

    I would love to improve my photoshop skills to rebrand and restart my blog that I had about a year ago.

    I would use these skills to improve my work as a graphic design student!

    I’m a blogger and have committed to creating more visually appealing posts, and have wanted to take Blogshop for a while! Would love to win!

    Amaris says:

    I’m a blogger and I would love to hone my skills in Photoshop. I use it a ton for making simple graphics, but I have only learned by playing around and could definitely use help in developing my knowledge.

    Louise says:

    Would love to take this class to better my blog!

    Catherine says:

    Hey there! I am an Interior Design student and blogging novice. Up to this point I’ve only used my Photoshop skills in interior renderings but would love to learn how to make more visually appealing images and posts as well as rebrand my blog and portfolio to really reflect my bright and cute personality! I would be so excited to win!

    jackie says:

    I currently have a blog, but haven’t touched it in months! I really want to get inspired again and post more! I also would like to learn more photoshop for work! It would help get some stuff done much faster here 🙂

    eeek!! i’d love to take this class and rebrand my blog and learn some useful photoshop stuff!

    Nicola says:

    As an eternal learner I feel there is always room for improvement and would love to learn more ways of making my blog better.

    Mel says:

    Hey! I’m currently working on building my own little business, and doing it all by myself: business plan, html, logo… Not getting how Photoshop works is a pain in the a**, I swear. With it, I would design a spanking website. I’d love to learn in my pyjamas from my apartment (in Paris, France! How’s that for international? 🙂 )

    Kristy says:

    I wanted to start a blog on my culinary adventures and put it together with an etsy shop for custom kitchen wares (think burnt designs in spoons & cutting boards, glitter vinyl pantry containers, etc.), but my photos seemed so “blah” that I got discouraged and stopped all together. I recently was given my mom’s old Nikon, so now that I have the camera I would love to learn the computer skills and give it another try.

    Lindsey says:

    Oh my, I would love to win this! I would use the skills from this class for for work and my blog.

    Desiree says:

    I would love to improve my photoshop skills and be excited about blogging again. I don’t update my photo blog as frequently as I should and I know taking blogshop will get me motivated!

    Rebecca says:

    I’m a freelancer and I’d love to add some new skills to my repertoire 🙂

    Theresa says:

    This is coming at the perfect time in my business if I win. I have a photoshoot on monday and I TOTALLY need to re-do my Website 🙂 Thanks Bri!

    Kate T says:

    I graduated with a degree in Fine Art, but now everything is digital and I really need to boost my illustration skills and learn Photoshop! Every time I try to teach myself Photoshop, I end up in tears and banging my head against a wall, so it would be amazing to have an expert show me what to do as I start to brand my new blog! 🙂

    Michelle says:

    I have always dreamed of starting a travel blog. Now I am in the midst of a major life change and this could really give me the push I need to pursue that dream. *fingers crossed*

    I’m a blogger who has no PS skills and have been dreaming of attending a blogshop sometime!

    Katie says:

    I would love to improve my photoshop skills to be help me finally launch my own blog!
    The at home course would be perfect for me.

    Molly Rapozo says:

    I just start a food blog with a DSLR camera. I don’t know anything about photoshop and would love a tutorial!


    I would love to be able to take the BlogShop course online. I have been working on my new blog/store.. but I really need direction on continuity and PS skills. Here’s to hoping!!

    Holly B says:

    I’m a blogger, and while I’ve improved quite a bit in editing my photos (and found it easier to teach myself some of those skills), I’d love to work on more graphic design related skills for mood boards, blog design, etc.

    So excited that you’ve opened it up to all computers, I just upgraded to the newest version of PS so I’m ready to go!

    Kristi says:

    Watched your lovely video and got so excited! I’m a self taught fashion designer bootstrapping an innovative, eco fashion line that is ethically made in Canada. Having better photoshops skills will empower me to turn content around faster, and create more engaging and interesting imagery. Fingers crossed!

    Nina says:

    I work as a designer in-house at a small company, and I’d love to take blogshop online! It’s been a few years since I graduated, and I’ve been needing a push for more inspiration & ideas. It would be fun to be able to present to my company ways to improve our online presence!

    Kristine M. says:

    I would love to have the opportunity to win a spot in the online blogshop because I love learning about design and I’m also rebranding my blog. This workshop would be really beneficial for me plus it would inspire me to post more and attract a bigger audience. I also just finished a graphics class this semester so I would love to take what I’ve learned there and what I’ll learn here and produce some great things!

    Michelle says:

    What a great giveaway! I do currently use Photoshop, but don’t know enough about it to get the full benefits. I’d love to make my blog and my photos look amazing, but everything always ends up so-so. I am definitely keen to delve more into this world and make my site engaging and beautiful.

    Mami says:

    I’m from Tokyo, Japan. I’m starting a new civictech project and I’d like to share it all over the world. It will be awesome if I could learn how to run a blog and improve my photoshop skills!

    I’m a stay at home mom with a personal blog and I think it’s time for me to do something for myself. I would love to learn some Photoshop skills to improve my blog and make it into something I can be proud of.

    Oh taking this class would be life-giving! I live in central China and am exploring how to use social media to help disadvantaged women + spark creativity in a society that does not value creativity. The time would surely be inspirational 🙂

    Vera says:

    Would love to start blogging again and would love to be able to make it look great. I’m a newbie when it comes to photoshop and need all the help I can get! x

    Rita says:

    I was the kind of girl who grew up with her head inside books or playing outside until the sun goes down. I first had internet conection at home by the age of 26 :)(I’m 30) , and looking back is like I was filling my experience baggage so I could one day create my own content. I do wish to create a beautiful blog, I wish it will beautiful, clean and my message and stories about Nature, life and travels will be clear. I need all the help from you guys to make it beautiful and clear, because I know you are the best at that!

    'Becca'lise says:

    My husband and I write a film blog, and I would love to use my new skills for that!

    April says:

    I’d like to take my travel/expat lifestyle blog to the next level to set it apart from the other common travel blogs out there. I love high design, something that’s fun, layered, more graphic-y, and give some of the photos more life and oomph to better communicate with my community.

    Sara Barge says:

    Hi Designlovefest! I am a new co-author of a blog that has recently been re-launched. We have a vision of creating an awesome lifestyle blog covering interior design, fashion, DIY projects, cocktails – basically anything inspirational and fun. However, what we are lacking is beautiful, original photos. I have a great DSLR camera and have recently completed a photography course. However, where I lack is in knowing how to edit these photos to make them extra special. I would love to conquer editing photos with Photoshop – a tool that has intimidated me in the past. I think this jump-right-in Photoshop bootcamp would be the perfect experience to get me inspired and give me the confidence I need to create layout and unique images for our new blog. Thanks in advance for your consideration!

    Julie says:

    I really want to start a blog, but one of my biggest concerns is the quality of my photography, and my photo editing skills. If I were lucky enough to win I’m sure I would feel much more confident about my skills after the class!

    Jess says:

    As a photographer, I’m a bit of a purist. I have been looking to rebrand and start a blog to go along with that brand. Your style is classic and pure with a bit of a twist. I have been very interested in attending one of your classes for a while now but do not have the funds. My fingers are crossed I get this opportunity to learn from the best!

    Evan Carlson says:

    I have recently started managing social media and writing a blog for a startup home and garden boutique in Seattle. I’m loving the process, and flourishing creatively but the learning curve is enormous. I want to create as professional and creative a product as I can, and I would so love to learn from women I admire so, both creatively and as incredible entrepreneurs! I also want to apply these skills to my personal goals — to open a shop and offer curated design services, and also run a personal blog. Would be so incredibly excited to have this opportunity, as I currently couldn’t afford it otherwise. Thanks!

    kerry says:

    i need a refresher for my new blog!

    Laura Morris says:

    This would help me with my blog and the new social media overhaul we are doing at my job! I have a wacom tablet and a DSLR so I know I could benefit from a lot of what you teach.

    Erica says:

    I’m a blogger and would love to use my new photoshop skills to enhance my blog. I really want to be able to take it up a notch and this class would be perfect. Also I have a little dream of starting up a small business…crossing my fingers to win.

    Carrie says:

    Hi! I’m a blogger and I’d love to amp up my blog a bit. It’d be great to have a chance to step it up! My husband and I live in Yokosuka, Japan (he is in the US Navy and we are currently stationed here), so an online option would be perfect! xo

    Amy says:

    The photoshop skills will help me to prototype a food customization app and also build a website for it.

    This is awesome! I would love to attend BlogShop to be inspired on new ways to improve my posts graphics, and become better acquainted with photoshop! I know that having more photoshop skills would also be a great addition to my resume.

    Phuong says:

    I would love to use my new Photoshop skills to chronicle and further my card making/mothering/blogging endeavors! I held out for the Melbourne, Australia blogshop and it sold out lightening fast so I missed out! I’d love to do the online course. Thank you for having this learning avenue in the first place!

    Always wanting to try different layouts for my blog and be able to do very lovely looking graphics for all sorts of business related things! This course if perfect! Love you guys. Leanne x

    Hello sweeties!
    Thanks so much for giving us this opportunite!!
    I would love to win this gift because I have a blog and although i’m always trying to learn things by myself it is difficult to find anything that compares to what you will teach us with this lovely gift.
    I live in Portugal and my huge huge dream is to be albe to design a blog that will help me pursuit my dream of becoming a makeup artist. The Photoshop skills will help me to built this blog that i’ve been wanting for so long.
    Seeing you girls is such an inspiration!
    Once more, thank you so much for making us believe that nothing is impossível and that we should always but really always follow our dreams!

    Vita says:

    As a blogger I terribly need PS skills but at the moment I mostly use it for resizing my pictures. So the at home workshop would be a dream!

    Pearl says:

    I have a very basic knowledge of Photoshop & I’d love to learn new tricks that I could use to improve my blog interface. I’m so elated that you’re giving away free classes!

    Diana Guerguieva says:

    Hi, I have wanted to start a blog for a while now and would love to improve my photoshop skills and learn how to create a beautiful blog. I would take the class from home in Toronto.

    Amanda U. says:

    I’m hoping to start a blog so these skills would be great to learn!

    Lauren Clay says:

    I would love to do Blogshop at Home to make my blog look a whole lot better. I know how to do the basics but would love to learn everything Photoshop can do for my blog!

    I would absolutely LOVE to take your blogshop course and have been reading your blog for years now. I write a blog about local + organic food and only in the past few months have started to learn more about design. I just got photoshop, and your course would be the perfect way to jump right into it! Thanks for everything you do and making the internet a brighter and more beautiful place 🙂

    Allison R says:

    I’ve been wanting to start a blog for sometime now, but I’m somewhat of a perfectionist and want to start it “right” …aka I don’t want to have that beginner/rookie look 🙂

    stephania says:

    I really wanted to come to a blogshop “class” but it is too expensive for me (i live in athens, Greece) so this is the second best idea. I want to start a blog but most of all i like the feeling go your events.

    May says:

    I’m living temporarily in New Zealand which means while most of my friends are gearing up for summer in California, I’m gearing up for winter here in the Southern Hemisphere! There won’t be fresh strawberries from the farmers markets, or long beach days, or bouquets of wildflowers this June. My love for the summer warmth and the inspiration from the freedom the sunshine, waves, and long days will eventually be the focus of my blog/print shop (still a big work in progress!). The rainy/cold/cozy inside winter weather here in New Zealand means it will be the perfect time to learn new photoshop skills and to make a big push forward on my blog. It’s the perfect time here to make a cup of tea, slip into some wool socks, and spend the weekend learning new skills!

    Allison Schaffer says:

    This course has always been of interest to me but I could never justify the cost to travel! This online option is amazing – I’m currently renavigating my career and opportunities to hone my Adobe/design skills are something I can’t miss!

    Teryn says:

    I feel like I’m in a transition period right now where my blog has the opportunity to grow if I really put my whole self into it and just make things happen. Whether that be better looking blog posts, updating my sidebar, adding more features, taking better photos, it can all improve my brand. I would be so excited to win this!!

    Aubrey says:

    hello bri! my relationship to blogging has largely been one of fits and starts. multiple wordpress accounts with a post or two, and a decade old blogger that reads more like my high school diary than i’d like it to (damn internet). i love the medium but have had little confidence in my ability to translate the inspiration and images in my head into a blog that really feels like and represents “me”. i’ve multiple times considered putting blogshop on credit or finagling it into my financial aid, but when immediate practicality had to prevail i’ve sadly put it aside. if i were to win i’d use to course to gain the skills to finally make a presence i’m proud of; i’d use it to document the unique transitions my life is in having recently moved, graduated from college and taken more than a couple terrifying leaps of faith. a blog of the flowers that make me go weak in the knees, the plants and the garden that fills me with awe in it’s ever changing glory, or the meals created to nourish my tiny family. i want to document this wonderful little life i’m scared and fortune to live. and i truly think blogshop could give me the skills to do so beautifully. i’d be lying (by omission) if i didn’t also think that the skills i would gain from blogshop wouldn’t be terrific assets in the marketable skills department for this recent grad either 😉 – and i’d also utilize it to create goodies and an online presence for my loved one’s self-run business. i think you’ve developed an incredible course and i would be oh so pleased to be apart of the blogshop alum!

    Rebecca says:

    This would be an amazing opportunity – entering now!

    Rebecca says:

    I got so excited I forgot to explain what I would use it for – duh! I would use the experience gained through the Blog Shop At Home Course to expand my knowledge in photoshop. With my new found skills I would then transform my blog into a beautifully presented corner of the world with eye candy everywhere. I feel so much excitement towards the growth of my blog and would love to harness that energy and do something truely beautiful!

    Hello from Paris, France!! I am currently on vacation with my family, showing our daughter how incredible Europe is. I have already taken close to seven hundred photos during the London portion of our trip but I wish I knew how to edit my photos, create better blog layouts and make animated gifs. I love blogging and I am in my fifth year of my blog but I feel I’ve reached a plateau in my knowledge of how to code, edit photos and further my readership. I have so much blog content bursting out of me (Here is a post about our first day in London http://sunkissis.blogspot.fr/2014/05/photo-shoot-with-lee-robbins.html) but no strong foundation of how to make my blog thrive and flourish. Being a Mom to an almost four year old, makes it hard for me to attend an in-person Blogshop class so the online version seems like a dream come true. I get butterflies thinking about the potential my blog has and what a perfect fit Blogshop at Home would be for unlocking my blog’s je ne sais quoi! Merci

    Kristin says:

    I’ve got some graphic skills, but I’d love to dig deeper and learn from some of the best. Couldn’t be more thrilled for this giveaway!

    Emma-Jane says:

    I’d honestly just love to hang out with you guys 😉

    I studied design but would love a photo shop refresher. I feel like I’ve lost my skills and feeling a bit uninspired.

    Kirby Louise says:

    All the way from Australia — I came across DesignLoveFest on a lazy day of web surfing & instantly feel in love with the brand and the design! Being a Graphic Designer I’ve always wanted to start a blog/expression of creativity, but always doubted myself & lack of skill on Design Software (despite studying design at University). I’d love the opportunity to join you from across the other side of the world & participate in Blogshop – to hopefully (finally) convince myself i’m capable of creating/blogging with the best. #pickme

    Hi Bri,

    I first stumbled upon Blogshop about 3 years ago and since then I have always wanted to attend a workshop. You guys are the pioneers of this workshop stuff! Since that time many things have hindered me from being able to attend a in person workshop (mostly funds) but my love for your blog, and brand has always been there!

    As for why I want to attend, it’s mainly for two reasons. 1. In today’s world of blogs visuals are everything! Our world is highly overly stimulated amazing visuals always at there fingertips. From instagram feeds to blogs presentation is everything and I want to be able to put my best foot forward! I would love to gain more useful skills to improve my blog. I currently have a few self taught basics but I know there are more skills in photography, lighting and photoshop that I just haven’t figured out yet!
    Secondly because I have a new position that requires me to have these skills! I am a social media intern for an up and coming wedding company and I would love to have more skill to revamp the blog and social media icons! I have the writing skills but I need to upgrade my presentation skills! I would love the opportunity to be one of the five! I will be praying to hear from you all soon!!!

    Indigo says:

    I would love to enhance my Photoshop skills for my blog + to learn new skills that I can use for some digital products I’m working on.

    Brittany says:

    I would love to learn some new skills for my blog! There’s so much to learn, this would be an invaluable resource!

    Annie says:

    I would lovee to win! Desperately need to bump up my skills for my company’s website.

    Celestine says:

    i would like to use blogshop for my portfolio website and blog. i have a basic portfolio but it needs sprucing up! i know the basics of AI and PS but don’t really know how to apply it in building an online presence.

    Jinan Munro says:

    I’m a rookie blogger and an L.A. transplant who recently started a blog as a way to document my life right now. I would love to know more of the basics of blogging and learn how to focus my thoughts and grow my blog organically.

    Phoebe Chin says:

    I would love to use blog shop skills to start the website for DAMchic, a student run fashion magazine at OSU. We can’t wait to release content more than 3 times a year in our issues!

    Rebekah Clark Moody says:

    I have ventured multiple times into the blogging world, but constantly feel insecure with my lack of photoshop skills. I would love to gain the skills necessary to bring beauty to the digital world.

    Joana says:

    Since I discovered DESIGN LOVE FEST, I started have interest in this blogs world!
    My friends and I want to create a blog but we don’t know a lot of photoshop, HTML, how to improve our blog, etc.
    We love photography, interior design, architecture, web design and we are studying product design at school.
    We want to have fun with the blog in our free time!
    Thank you for this opportunity! 😀

    Amy says:

    I am a graphic designer and would love to use my skills to transition to work from home… I would love to attend one of the blogshops to get a jump start on how to connect my skill-set to an online business. Plus the past ‘shops just look super fun and it would be great to chat with like-minded folks!

    Lily says:

    I’m a blogger and jewelry designer and I’d love to brush up and refine my photosohp skills!

    Jessica R says:

    I’ve tried blogging before and would end up frustrated at how things were coming out and eventually the entire thing would fizzle out. As a stationary designer, my head just isn’t in the web game, so any tips and tutorials would really help get my blog off the ground (for good this time)! I love your style and think that a seat in blogshop online is just what I need. Thank you so much for offering this to your blog followers!!!

    carina says:

    i would like to win this giveaway because is a great opportunity to my friends and i started with our blog. We didn´t have a great knowledge of graphic design and the blogshop can change this, so thank´s for this opurtubity.

    lisa says:

    Oh my goodness gracious (typed while silently squealing and crossing all my fingers)!!!! This is my favorite giveaway – that’s ever been offered – anywhere. The timing seems serendipitous as I am actually in the process of exiting my freelance work in order to carve out the space to create (there are some online and paper ideas rolling around in my head that I can’t wait to give attention to), and really need / want / am ready for these skills. I would be the happiest camper to be able to experience YOUR workshop, and I’m picturing it being the boost I need to go and make and put myself out there! 🙂

    erin m. says:

    I’d love to learn photoshop to have more freedom in my blogging – in both blog design + posts/photos!

    I’d love to learn photoshop to make my blog and photos look even better!

    I want to learn more tricks and tips for how to use photoshop in the most effective way for my blog, as well as how to increase my readership overall!

    Elizabeth says:

    I am a wanna be blogger who hasn’t kick started her blog yet. I am keen to get started I just want to know how to make it happen and post quality content using the tips from the blogshop!

    Suzanna says:

    I really want to expand my skills to improve my personal blog and to launch a cooking blog. This giveaway would be perfect!!

    Lacey Owczarzak says:

    i think this workshop would give me the confidence and skills i need to start that blog i have been talking about…

    Kelsey Elam says:

    I’d love to use the knowledge from blogshop to improve my beginner level website and I could definitely use some photoshop help as I would love to incorporate a blog for DIY projects!

    I’m an actor, and manage my own website. While I’m very artistically inclined, I don’t know the first thing about Photoshop, and need to up my game to take my online presence and printed materials to the next level. I think Blogshop is just the ticket! 🙂

    Amanda says:

    As a young designer I would use this class to enhance my skills and become better versed in digital media. Ultimately, it would be a huge help for potential job opportunities.

    Victoria says:

    For a while now I´ve been hoping I´d be somewhere at the right time to join one of your classes… vainly… but this would come at the right moment to put an end to it 🙂
    A friend and I are building up a T-Shirt line designed by
    juvenile delinquent from Berlin and would need the extra push to get the idea of it out there. Fingers crossed…

    Hi (: My name is Giovanna, I´m almost 20 (my birthay is the 9th of june!!) and I´m from Brazil! I have a blog called Avec Gigi. It is a small blog, but I have the intention of make my blog more than a hobby!
    I woulf use my new blog shop skills to make my blog more beautiful and better to my readers and for me. I really want to learn a lot about blogging and the blogshop is the perfect oportunity!I hope that I win that giveaway, because I’m eager to improve my skills. (And it would be a amazing birthday gift)
    Thanks (:

    Kelsey says:

    i would LOVE to take one of the online workshops and learn how to take my blog posts to the next level!

    i want to grow my blog and business <3

    Tilly says:

    I would lurrrrrve to win a place on Blogshop! I would use my skills both on my blog and small business to make my web presence and branding look super duper awesome. Thank you for the opportunity to take part!

    I’m an Australian designer living in Mexico City. Being immersed in such an amazing culture, there is always so much going on in my head. I need help kick-starting my blog, getting my ideas, photos and designs out of my head, and onto the web!

    Amanda says:

    I would like to take BLOGSHOP online class because I feel the material learned throughout the class is exactly what I need in the search for finding my passion. I recently graduated college with a degree I do not find useful and am now trying to find my way. I have always loved photography and have taken a few classes that have allowed me to be a pretty decent photographer. I think learning the skills of photoshop along with the tricks of adding your own creativity is something that will really help me find what it is I can do with my talent. I feel inadequate to others when blogging because I do not know certain skills of photoshop but I do believe my raw talent should not be left to waste. I want to find a way to intrigue others to inspire as this site does to me.

    Madelyn says:

    I would be THRILLED to win a spot for the online class. I am working on getting a home business started and this would be a great class to get me started with planning my online presence!

    carly tati says:

    Hi Bri I would love to be a part of your online blogshop and participate from France where I am based at the moment:)

    I’d like to be a part of Blogshop for a few reasons:
    1) your concept is so innovative and advanced. being a part of this is being a part of the future by sharing ideas, learning and digital content online.

    2) I’m a photographer, but was really resistant to digital. I just switched from film a year ago, so I know there must be a ton for me to learn in photoshop.

    3) I took photoshop in school for fashion design but it’s totally different, was more for sketching. Picking up some skill to add a light element of graphic design to the photos I put up would just make it more visually appealing.

    4) It’s a great group that you attract, so it would be fun to be a part of sharing in that creativity.

    I love all the beautiful visual imagery you create on your blog! Cheers~

    Tamara says:

    Your online course would be perfect for me! I’m planning to launch my small business and blog next month and I could really bone up on some new Photoshop skills.

    Eeep- So eager to see who won!

    Ju says:
