{stop the press}

There's so much news to share and I want to fill you in on everything that's been happening with me over the last few weeks.  BUT I've got the most sensational giveaway to share first.


You all know I'm a huge fan of Vivienne McMaster.  She's completely inspiring and I absolutely love her work.

Vivienne has generously offered up a giveaway for her upcoming Light Hunters e-course and I'm delighted to offer someone the chance to join one of her amazing courses.

About Light Hunters {from Vivienne's website}
The Light Hunting classes invite you to ignite your relationship with light. Photography is visual poetry based on the language of light. These courses invite you not only to seek out the light on the bright beautiful days but as well to seek it out in places where others may not notice it. At the core of these courses is the idea that there is always light and you are invited to look at the world around you in a different light.

Through visual inspiration and thoughtful posts, you are will find yourself falling in love with light and see an improvement in your photography!

Light Hunters, the original course, is a 30 day class. Each day you are invited to look at a new aspect of light as these daily posts arrive in your inbox!

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment.  But be quick.  I'll be drawing the winner on Wednesday.  Class starts this week. {make sure you include an email contact for this one}


Here's a quick summary of other news:
  • I have two new jobs starting this week.  Excellent part-time jobs that will energise and inspire me, pay the bills and leave plenty of room for my own creative work.
  • Hello Soul Hello Business is continuing to blow me away and change everything about the way I see myself in business.
  • Your Awesome Year was absolutely incredible.  It was amazing for the participants and for me it was like coming home after years of denying my true calling.
  • I'm working on my own vision board for 2012.
  • I've got my first solo gallery exhibition opening at Red Brick on Friday 17th Feb at 6pm and I'd love you to join me.
  • Things feel like they are lining up for me at the moment in the most incredible way.
  • 2012 is going to be an absolutely awesome year.

  1. Wow, I'd never really stooped to consider the role that light plays in my life... but it makes a lot of sense!
    Fantastic that everything is starting to fall into place for you, Cathy, after all your hard work.
    You did indeed look like you had "come home" on Saturday. And the awesomeness was testimony to your talents.

  2. What a timely post and giveaway, I was just talking to hubby about light and the play of log in our home during the day and how it makes us feel. I'd love to do this course.
