20 Mar Welcoming Spring with a Giveaway
Happy Spring everyone! It seems like everyone has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Spring; with her gentle way of waking up the earth and promise of new beginnings. I have been more excited than ever with the coming of my e-class Picture Spring at Big Picture Scrapbooking which begins on April 1st.
What is Picture Spring? It’s 30 days of soulful, seasonal celebration. It’s an email from me in your inbox each morning for the whole month of April encouraging you to look at the world around you a little differently. It’s about using your camera as a creative tool to help you translate the magic of your life into images. It’s about chaging your perspective and seeing (and capturing) the beauty that can often be overlooked everyday for 30 days. It will be a perfect way to start a photography practice of both mindful and celebratory creativity! I do hope you decided to join in the fun.
Today to celebrate the first day of Spring and all her splendor, I will be giving away 3 complimentary registrations to Picture Spring. Everyone is eligible to win (and if you win and you’re already enrolled in the class, you can always offer the free registration to a friend, your sister or even your mom).
Leave a comment here to be included in the random drawing for one of the 3 prizes. And if you are enrolled in the class already, or plan to enroll be sure to let me know in your comment…I’m excited to hear from you.
And if you happened to be as excited as I am about Picture Spring (is that even possible?), you can grab a button for your blog and share your enthusiasm with the masses! Just right click on the image to the left and link it back to the Picture Spring class page at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Let everyone know what you’re up to this season!
Please leave your comment by Tuesday (3/ 23) at midnight to be entered in the drawing. Winners will be announced on Thursday (3/25).

the class sounds so inspiring. i saw daffadils in my yard today and after arranging them in a vase, I took a picture of them on my back deck. Flowers blooming always reminds me that spring is not far away after a long winter.

JolandaPosted at 22:23h, 21 March
Today was the first day this year I had the door to my garden open for the whole day. Walking through the garden I noticed small plants already starting green leaves. The birds were making a lot of noise and were very busy. I enjoy all seasons, but spring is my best time of year.
suskilmerPosted at 22:47h, 21 March
I love taking pics…I love BPS classes…if I don’t win this, I definitely want to take the class!
Cheryl MattisPosted at 23:23h, 21 March
I would love to take your ecourse. I have been wanting to explore photography for a long time. My father died almost three years ago and now I have his digital SLR. I have been too intimidated to learn how to use it, it seems so complicated. I have finally decided to just pick it up and start taking pictures. I love spring and this course seems like just the perfect combination of inspiration and motivation to get me started!
SaraPPosted at 00:17h, 22 March
Spring has been a long cold winter coming. I’m ready to celebrate spring in all its glory.

I would love to win–it’s my first time doing something like this.
AmandaPosted at 01:19h, 22 March
I think I’ve had the Picture Spring page open in a separate browser since I first read about it. Always waiting and wondering if I should do it. I suppose this might be just the nudge I need to take the challenge!
Megan BenedictPosted at 02:47h, 22 March
I just got back home from my first trip to Napa, CA. It was beautiful, and spring was in full bloom there. The hillsides were green from rain, the flowers were popping up, and the sky was the brightest, clearest blue you could wish for. Then I came home to CO to be welcomed by a snowstorm. Unbelievable, I thought.
I love spring, and I think you’re class sounds great. What a way to look around during April to catch the first glimpses of springtime in CO (which often can have lots of snow.) Enjoy spring, wherever you are.
lauren sPosted at 03:14h, 22 March
hopefully spring will bring us all out the winter funk and into our spring sweet spots… thanks for the giveaway!
kimbrygcPosted at 04:38h, 22 March
It’s been a long, cold winter, which was fine, but I’m now ready for spring and love the idea of looking at it’s arrival more purposely! That thought just makes me happy.
