Katie Evans GIVE-AWAY time!!!!



Hi sweet friends.  Sorry I've been a little absent lately.  I have so many plates a spinnin' right now.  Stuff that I'm not at liberty to talk about yet.  It's killing me, really it is.  I'm an open door, you all know that, so to keep my thoughts all bundled up inside is just not a healthy thing for me:)  I have about a dozen blog posts written up in my mind, but they'll just have to wait for another day.


So in the meanwhile let's do a give-away!!!  I was lucky enough to stumble across a blog recently that showcases beautiful photography.  You know I was all over that.  I love looking at pictures and this gal wrote an ebook on how to take them.  SCORE!







As I was looking through her beautiful book it struck me that I could have just bought this book instead of signing up for my $240 class last winter.  It had everything that I learned in a very simple straight forward, easy to understand manner.  It's perfect for someone who just splurged on that fancy camera and doesn't have a clue what to do with it;) 






Isn't her work gorgeous??





Miss Katie Evans has kindly offered to give-away two of her ebooks to my readers!!!!  To enter just leave me a comment telling me your favorite photography blog to read.  If you don't have one just leave me a regular ole' comment I won't be picky:)  So share away!  I'll announce the winner on Sunday.






Oh and if you can't wait until Sunday go here and snatch up your very own copy now!  It's electronic so you'll get immediate satisfaction.  LOVE THAT!   Make sure to type in FARMGIRL for the code and you will receive $2.00 off your order. 










Have a blessed day.

  11. Mine! My 15 year old daughter is a budding photographer! She takes the pics and I blog them. We've had to take some medical hiatuses (is that a word?) while her sister was sick, but it was our way of keeping in touch when we were away in the hospital! I would love to get the ebook for her. She's hoping to get into the photography class at her high school, but it's super competitive, maybe we'll have to forego them for college classes. Can't wait to hear your big news!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh how fun!! Well, I know she isn't primarily a photography blog, but I would say Kelle Hampton- that chick has skill!! I just love her :)

  22. Hi Becky,
    I love reading your blog and seeing all the pictures you take. They are beautiful!! I am always trying to take better pictures and figuring out my camera has been a project of it's own. I am still learning. I aspire to take beautiful pictures like you. Thanks for sharing your life with me.
    Love and hugs my Brave friend.

  59. Okay...3 times and I'll be out. :( I've posted 3 x's today and something has happened to it, so one last try.
    Becky, I love hearing about you, your life and seeing your photos online. You have truly improved your skills and that is obvious with your postings. Well done...
    What an exciting opportunity for your readership to have this chance of a giveaway.
    I love Kim Klassen Cafe, as her photography is gorgeous, but her generosity and teaching capabilities have me so into her blog. She is truly one generous soul as she gives away weekly one of her textures she creates to enhance our photography. Love this about her. Do check her out if you haven't done so yet.
    Gretchen~
