Artful Blogging Magazine $100 Giveaway – Yes, I’m Featured in the Summer Edition!

It’s been quite a while since I last wrote on my blog, and I missed it a lot! My schedule was so busy lately, photographing for my clients and shooting for a new book, that I didn’t realize that summer is already here. I love writing and capturing the images of my day to day life, with all the small and lovely details – fresh ingredients from the farmers’ market, a quick summer rain, our cozy dinner in two, a healthy dessert or fresh flowers – and I don’t like to stay away from the blog for so long.

When I found the last issue of Artful Blogging magazine in my mailbox it was like a wake up call. A reminder of the things I really love.

Seeing my work in print, next to the wonderful photographs of some of my favorite bloggers, was inspiring and made me feel proud and honored.

The team from Artful Blogging made such a lovely work with their Summer edition, which you can order online here with a 50% discount if you use the coupon code PUBL0517 during checkout. Hurry up, the coupon code is limited to the first 4 orders!
I also invite you to enter the giveaway at the end of this post for a chance to win a a copy of the Summer Issue, plus a $100 Gift certificate which can be applied to any of the products from The Shoppe at Sommerset
ALSO YUMMY:  The Simplest 1-Day Detox

Along with some of my favorite recipes and photographs from the blog, you can read my point of view about the photography and the food blogging adapted to the social media requests. The fact that I started photographing food when the styling and mood were in focus left its mark on my photography. The art of my images doesn’t stay in evoking a certain memory or mood, but more in starting a story, one that each of my viewers will fill in with its own life experience.

    This give away is a wonderful idea. I just looked at the Shoppe website and there are really clever things there. I think I would like to buy the Wire Forms. I would put my collection of traditional Korean clothing on them and display them in my house. I would enjoy that so much, it would bring a bit of Korea to me every day. I have subscribed to your website for several years and I am always excited to see an email from you with new stories and especially your creative recipes. Good luck on your endeavors.

    Congrats, Ana!!

    There’s no question that you deserve the honor. “Artful Blogging” is the definition of
    what you do! Just beautiful….

    I’m likely to use the gift certificate to set off on a buying spree! Art tools, craft tools, paints, inks, pencils, gelatos, markers, and books to inspire… What fun!

    Again, congrats, Ana.

    I would get a coloring kit for my teen daughter. She recently entered 2 art competitions and won both. It was her first 2 drawings, so it would be nice to get her some supply.

    Congratulations on the feature! That is so amazing!

    I would be excited to win, because they have so many beautiful inks and paints. I have really been trying my hand at calligraphy and always love layer some watercolors underneath. Summer is such a great time to explore new art forms and the $100 would be such a treat for me & my daughter. We love to sit out on a sunny porch and craft:)

    My first instinct if I won was that it would just be so nice to have something beautiful for myself. I’m a single mom with two awesome kiddos, and most of my time, and money, goes to them. I also work full time and a student. In all honesty, I’m not sure what I liked the most, but would love the opportunity to explore.

    Thank you for the lovely blog and even more amazing recipes! I’ve never made something that didn’t turn out delicious!!!
