    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win a space. Your artwork is simply AMAZING. Winning a space would mean the world to me as I have been unemployed for more than a year now. So finances are tight. Art is the only thing that keeps me going…. As well as my daughter 🙂 I’m holding thumbs for a space and thank you again for the wonderful opportunity. Much love from South Africa 🙂

    I just love your work, your universe and the colours you use! So I would love to win a place for Ever After 2019! I’ve already enrolled for a former Ever After course, and I just love it! I love Fairy tales and painting,so what not for me to love in Ever After? I love the tutorials but also that each artist tell us about their interpretation of the tale they’ve chosen. Also I’ve read in one of Tam’s post that this year is the last of Ever After, so I ‘d love to be part of it! xx

    Hi Maria! Thanks so much for the opportunity. I have been enjoying your art on Pinterest for years now and am thrilled to see you teaching this class. I’m sure your lesson will be amazing.

    Of course, a big reason I’d like to take the class is to learn your technique and that of the other teachers, but also I would love the chance to apply my own style to the lessons and see who falls out of the brush. I think it would be so much fun. Just the idea of it puts a big smile on my face. And thanks again for a chance

    Hi there, I’ve signed up to follow you on Facebook and will share your post on my page as well. I think it would be awesome to take the Ever After workshop with a group of like minded people while learning to find our own style. Funds are tight so I’m keeping my fingers crossed to win a spot. Thanks kindly for this opportunity.

    May 12, 2019 at 12:46 am

  34. Hi Maria- just found your page from following the blog hop. SO excited to hear your topic, Rose Red story is my fav one.. even though everyone forgets about her lol I hope I can still be considered for your spot, unfortunately I dont have a facebook acct so I usually miss out on things, but i am posting this comment and following on instagram/sharing. I would love to be considered because I have recently hit a major art block and can not afford these amazing classes due to health reasons. If not, thank you for the opportunity to try and win. I hope by following everyone, if I dont win anything, i will get some inspiration and maybe learn from sight on how to create and find my style. If i can work again one day, i hope to be able to take classes so one day I can make a living doing what I truley love… creating!! Thank you!

    I love fairy tales because of the strong connection with my inner child and this session is super special, because it’s the last one, exciting and sad at the same time..

    I’m so excited for this opportunity…what an amazing gift anyone can receive. To be taught by all these amazing artists..wow. I’m feeling very positive that whomever receives this spot will enjoy the classes tremendously. I know I would. As I have an 8 year old daughter, we would be able to use this as bonding time and learn about all the Fairy Tales she loves. Although our financial situation is a disaster at the moment, we would definitely make the best of this opportunity. Crossing fingers and toes. Sending much love from South Africa xxx

  52. Chantelle Venter

    Can’t wait for Ever After to start. Art is my lifesaver at the moment. Stress levels and finances are a disaster at the moment and when I do art I get to forget about life worries for a while. I’m also desperate to find my own style. I keep reverting back to other people’s styles in search of my own. This opportunity would mean the world to me and will not be neglected at all. I’m sending out positivity and love in the hope of being fortunate enough to win a spot. Crossing my fingers and toes. Much love from Cape Town, South Africa. xxx
