A Give Away to say Thanks!


I've been blogging for just over a year, and it boggles my mind that I seem to have just over 400 lovely followers. Without getting too mushy, I can't believe how supportive all of you are. I really do love reading all of your comments, and emails that you send. Perks my day right up. It's been great reading all of your blogs - I feel like I really know you!

I'm just about to add some calendars to my etsy shop, so I'd love to give one away, along with a small print of your choice from my shop. To enter check out my shop and let me know which print you like best. I'll make the draw November 22nd. That's it! Pretty simple. I'll send out the calendar and print soon after that.


One last note. A Dr., with a very modern and pretty office, ordered three large blossom prints from me.  I wish my Dr. had a happy office like this one. I have to get a shot of it for you. I've never seen the "fleeting" series in large format before.....I think I prefer them this size.


Good luck! I'll be back on Friday.
Janis

Definitely Totem Pole #3. I want to say thanks to you for having such an amazing blog with a wonderful BC vibe. I just moved to Vancouver and I am having so much fun exploring the city and I love seeing it and the surrounding areas through your eyes.

Pinecone Camp said...

Thanks Rachel! Welcome to Vancouver!

Dawn said...

Oh fun!
I am heading there right now:)
Tis the season, my cousin from Our Little Love Nest is doing the calendar thing too:)
What fun everyone is today:)))))

sarah, flourish design + style said...

Oh, please pick me, please pick me, please pick me :) That calender is amazing Janis..so is every print on your site! xoxo

Dawn said...

A Bunch of Pretty3 is my favorite...although I like the other Bunch of Pretty2...and pretty much all the other flowers you have captured:)))

Great shop...those 3 above prints are now on my Christmas list.....

briannelee said...

So fun! My favorite is "bunch of pretty 1"

Natasha said...

Congratulations on such a wonderful blog. It is always a joy to visit you. I would love to enter your giveaway if I can? I love the beautiful image called "pink" of the rose in the teacup. It is exquisite!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Kylie C said...

What a lovely giveaway!

I cna't decide between 'Walk' and 'Shanghai alley' - if I win, I'll make a choice! :)

cathy said...

First of all, I love your blog! It is really fun to visit!

I am in love with many of your images, however 'bunch of pretty 1' speaks to me. Gorgeous!! The calendar is going to be beautiful!!

Best,

Cathy

m.e (Cathie) said...

it's so great to have discovered you Janis & your wonderful world here.
I love flowers & teacups and your images are just sooo dreamy.

how wonderful that you are coming to Melbourne!
If you are free at all, let me know, would love to sip some tea with you

Pooch Purple Reign said...

YAY, i like pink, bunch of pretty 1 and tea time... thank you for the chance!

mise said...

Still "empty but happy", and I love your clean and colourful calendar with its sparse Swedish-look chic.

monkeemoomoo said...

Is it possible to pick just one favourite?

'Bunch of pretty 2' Because you never can have too many bunches of pretty:)

Love the look of that calendar

Marisa Midori said...

That calendar looks gorgeous! I really am a huge fan of your beautiful photography. As for favourite print, it is a toss up between "rusted and hot" and "walk". But I think I'm going to pick "walk" because it reminds me of home.

heavenwildfleur said...

i'm definitely a 'bunch of pretty' girl :) Favourite probably bunch of pretty 3 though I'd prob like all 4! Like the fleeting series, think all 4 wld make a great collage on the wall!

arteriole said...

Oh Oh - the dreamy feel in all your prints is lovely, but Poppies 1 caught my eye (and my heart!)

craftchick said...

Congratulations on passing the one year mark with your blog. I love your print "Pink" the best - thank you for the giveaway - I'm sure everyone has their fingers crossed that they'll be the winner.

our urban farmhouse ♥ said...

Your "Peddle" print is absolutely inspiring. It reminds me of nostalgia-filled summer days, staying with my grandparents, and peddling out to the lake.

Your work is beautiful!

Razmataz said...

Bunch of Pretty 1 is my absolute favourite. Thankyou for the opportunity to enter your contest.

Hanna said...

I like poppies 3! pretty.

la boom! said...

Congrats about your blog!
It is more than inspiring :)
The calendar is awesome too!!!
As for the print, I am definitely into "Close-Up"

All the best
Tatiana

Sarah said...

They are all beautiful. I have admired the poppy series for some time. Tonight, however, my favourite is 'peddle'. It's lovely.
Thank you!

Portia said...

Your photo's are so light and dreamy. I love them dearly. Poppies 2

Bridget said...

I love Peter's Ford! Thanks!

Jas. said...

stunning photography - love poppies 1, closely followed by peddle!

me said...

How do I choose just one picture that I like? I think Close Up is really fun and i can picture just where I would put it in my house. And your calendar...I have my moms name for Christmas, she wants a calendar and what a perfect one it would be to give her. You do great work, keep it up!

jenna said...

Poppies 3- and I'm very intrigued by your calendar

Sarah Wilson said...

So hard to choose...I think peddle

Athena said...

Beautiful giveaway! Wow. I love Bunch of Pretty 4-so lovely.

Hello, I'm Emily Clare. said...

LOVE the 'Stare' print! It would be a great gift for my brother. He loves cows. :-)

Naomi said...

Hard time deciding, but I think Peddle, Poppies 3 was a very very close second though :)

mdcowley said...

Congrats! I love "waiting". I feel like mailbox is always waiting for something wonderful! Love snail mail. :) Great blog.

Nicole said...

The Poppies 1 print is my favorite. I like them all though. Congratulations on one year.

mydesignchic said...

They are all so pretty,but I'm going to have to go with the poppy - just love it!!

hayden said...

I like the dreamy summer feel of 'hazy' - it's getting to be winter in the prairies, and goodness, a reminder of the sun would be appreciated. :)

Lela Mae said...

I think that I'm in love with 'Close Up'. Gorgeous print! You are a very talented photographer.
*runs away to buy some prints*

I love CLOSE UP, but I love your calendar even more! It's a great way to enjoy ALL your prints
year-round!

heart-on said...

I am really tempted to heart all the ones from Vancouver as I am from there and am sadly not there anymore and they give me the warm and tinglies of home but let's be honest Close-up is fan-freaking-tastic!!!!

Leone at lionsrrroar@gmail.com said...

Wow, lovely calendar! I really like the print "1909" though it was hard to choose just one.

caroline said...

hopeful has to be my favorite!

Se said...

Weaving my hand... ME ME ME!

I love your print and choosing it was really difficult.

Peddle, at the end, won.

Headed over to your store and checked out your prints. Yikes, you are mean making us pick a number one fave; they are all so lovely!

I've gone for the hazy and hot print, though, as I like the soft focus on it.

Here's to another fabulous year of blogging!

I love "waiting".

amanda {the habit of being} said...

I love all the florals but my favorite is bunch of pretty 1. That would look beautiful in my daughter's bedroom :)

alissa said...

'Bunch of Pretty 1' is probably my favourite (yay for soft tones!), but I also *love* all your shots of BC, my home province. I've got a soft spot for those totems! (And I might add, that pink Tswassen tag you've tucked into your first pic today is magic!).

Amanda said...

tough choice, but i think i'll have to go with this one:

Poorvi said...

Wow! Love what your calendar looks like. I tried to pick one picture but just could't, So here's a long list of favorites:
Bunch of pretty2 (beautiful colors), Tea Time (I love how the cup in the center has tea..neat detail), Poppies 3 (love the angle and detail caught. I can almost feel it!), Stare, Waiting/Patience.
