Celebrate Spring Giveaway//Win a camera bag or free class!

This winter and spring has been incredible! I swear we’ve only had to shovel the snow off our driveway once. And I think Collin just wanted to use his shiny new snow shovel. But I am not complaining. No way. I wish every winter was this mild. I can’t remember the last time we were at the park in shorts in February & March. A few days ago we  taught the girls how to play Red Rover… “red rover red rover send Quincey right over!” I was pretty excited since I dominated that game in 3rd grade. And it was good to know that I still got it. ; )Yesterday I picked up these pretty stems pictured above for a project I am working on. It was the perfect way to celebrate the first day of spring!

Let’s continue the celebration of spring with a couple GIVEAWAYS ! Here’s a chance to win a Jo Tote–I love mine and use it everyday. AND win a free spot to Kelly’s SC sketchbook class!

Jo Totes provide ladylike bags for women to safely carry their cameras and a lens or two on a daily basis, at photo shoots, and while traveling.
The padded interior can be custom fitted not only to protect a camera and lenses, but also to accommodate and organize items like a wallet, music, phone, keys, cosmetics and more. Padding is sewn directly into the interior lining on all four sides and the bottom of the bags. Inside of each Jo Tote are removable pads which are completely customizable—you can use as many or as few pads as you wish, arranged in the way that best suits your camera, lenses, and other items.

There are the two new bag styles Gracie & Georgia. One is a bucket style and the other satchel. I am loving the magenta! Each bag also includes pockets, strong and comfortable shoulder straps, a top-zippered closure, and a removable cross-body strap. Leave a comment to win your favorite camera bag!

 

 

Join Kelly Purkey in another installment of her popular Sketchbook class! Sketchbook 4 is a four week class filled with fresh sketches, easy instructions, beautiful examples, and lots of fun. This class is designed to be used at any time and over + over again when you need inspiration. Sketchbook is different from any other sketch class out there because Kelly and the contributors offer design tips and detailed explanation of what makes a page work. It’s more than sketches – they’ll deliver valuable pointers for creating great layouts.

By the end of the class, you’ll have a complete sketchbook of 12 original sketches, 38 layouts, and an ADDITIONAL 38 sketches based on those creative pages. All the examples are brand new layouts, exclusive to this class… you won’t see them anywhere else! You will be receiving an example layout from Kelly for each of the sketches, along with two example layouts from a Studio Calico Design Team member and some of your favorite SC Guest Designers.

    My family and I are celebrating Spring by planting some fresh yummies: we did cilantro, basil, tomatoes, jalipenos, and of course strawberries. We’re also celebrating by taking a family vacay to Northern Utah, and I hope the weather will be as nice as you described while we’re there….although my kids will be pretty disappointed if we don’t have at least one day of snow. 🙂

    I could use one of those camera bags. I have been known to wrap my SLR camera in a hand towel then stuff it into my purse. I am celebrating spring by going on a Kayak adventure. I promise I won’t bring my camera wrapped in a towel along for the trip maybe in a dry sack instead.

    We have green grass and tulips, in March. Unheard of here in Ohio…I’m loving this spring already. So far, I’ve been gardening and taking pictures of the blooms and taking walks with my husband and kiddos…that’s how we are celebrating spring!

    oooh, I’ve wanted one of those bags forever! Loving the Millie Teal, but I think they’re all fantastic. I wouldn’t sneeze at the class either…Kelly Purkey is so inspiring! I love her classic style.

    I was just at the airport and I saw a girl with the mustard colored JoTote, it was all I could do to not snatch it right off of her shoulder. My problem is that I get on their website and I can’t decide which one I want, perhaps winning one would help narrow it down!

    I’ve been marveling at the lovely weather we’ve had here in my corner of Canada as well…unseasonably warm! I should probably be concerned about whether this is the impact of global warming but instead I’ve been basking in the sun!

    Also: I’ve been coveting one of Jo’s Totes!

    I LOVE (!!!) the Jo totes! What a great idea. I have a “thing” for purses/totes/bags you name it, but this is the best solution to tote your DSLR around and a lense and still look cute! Can you feel my excitement, ha!?!

    The class sounds amazing, too. I’m always on the lookout for new sketches but would love to actuallt end up with a finished book 😉

    Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win! Keeping my fingers crossed on this one.

    Oh, and I’m celebrating spring this year by letting my kids pick dandelions wherever we go and then putting them in little vases all over the house. They don’t last very long and I’m sure my husband won’t appreciate us bringing home more and more of them to spread throughout our grass, but we sure are enjoying picking them! 🙂
