Mingle Magazine is a beautiful publication by Stampington & Company and today I have the utmost pleasure in being able to offer you, my readers a chance to win a copy!
Brighten your day with the visual feast of imaginative gatherings that unfold from the pages of Mingle, along with the uplifting stories behind uniquely creative get-togethers — from small and intimate “girls’ nights in” to larger scale art retreats.
So what does Mingle have to do with me … well I’m so excited to tell you!
Last September I attended “Finding Stillness|2015” with Kim Klassen and 9 other photographers in her brand new space in Rivers, Manitoba, Canada.
“The Studio” is a light-filled photographer’s dream, full of lovingly gathered teacups, books, pillows, throws, baskets, tables, chairs, and other vintage items too numerous to mention. It’s completely magical.
The retreat focused on styling, shooting, and editing still lifes. But there was so much more to it. Meeting people who “get” you, who understand why you would stand on a step-ladder, teetering over a collection of various objects, taking dozens of photos, and discussing shutter speed, ISO, focal points, etc. is not something many of us experience on a day-to-day basis. It was amazing.
And then, two of the participants, Gigi Thibodeau of The Magpie’s Fancy and Diana Foster of the Studio 56 decided to put together a submission to Mingle Magazine about the retreat, and drumroll please … it was accepted!
So, if you’d like to win a copy of this beautiful publication and read about our retreat, just leave a comment … that’s it, that’s all!
A winner will be chosen on May 8th (Mother’s Day.)
Contest open world-wide!
Many thanks to Stampington & Company for providing me with this copy of Mingle!
