    How very exciting! Congratulations on your new shop and I wish you the very best. Your shop is beautiful ~ you will certainly do well.
    I started my day by filling my three birdbaths with fresh cool water for the birds. It is already in the 90s with higher temps expected. I then tended to the needs of my sweet 94 year old mother who lives with us.

  50. The shop is so nice! I'd love to win a little shopping spree there. I spent my morning recovering (and I'm sorry to say, whining a little bit) about the big migraine I had yesterday. The "fuzz" from it is starting to go away now thankfully.

    ReplyDelete
  52. It was 90+ degrees, humid and sunny when I got up but I walked to my early morning yoga class and enjoyed a good hour of stretching. When I got home I was happy to enter the air conditioning, made a cup of coffee and peeked into my teenage son's room. We sat on his bed and talked. I love this kind of summer morning. I'm warm on the inside and out! I can't wait to check out the shop... CONGRATS!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I started off my morning very early. Like 3am early. I woke up for some reason and couldn't get back to sleep, my brain was whirling around with different thoughts - some were even art related. Lol! Then I got up @ 7am, to get ready for a Dr.'s appt @ 9am. And I just got back. Whew! :) Now I am going to browse your shop and drool ;)

    ReplyDelete

    My morning started with my cat playing around with some toys (and making a lot of noise eheh), he's always the first to wake up! Then, after taking a nice shower and breakfast, I spent some time working on my handmade bags (with "Nebraska" by Bruce Springsteen as soundtrack) - my favorite job - before leaving for work (the other job ;).

    ReplyDelete
  97. Hi Alisa!! What a beautiful site...love it! Looking forward to all the new contents you will add (I know you will...lol) I started my day with starting the coffee...must have or I'm not fit to be around. Then washed my face, prepared a cuppa, and took my two fur babies outside for their morning romp! Picked a couple of fresh tomatoes. Then had to give both the fur babies a vinegar bath since they decided to attack a skunk as a tag team....UGH! Still smell it...oh well!

  144. hi Alisa,

    I've been following your blog for quit some time now (i'm sorry, i'm not really the reaction-type of person,haha)But I really love your work! And I think you're shop turned out wonderfull! I live in the Netherlands, so sadly enough i can't order in you shop (yet!) but I will keep following your proces. I'm about to open up my own webshop, and I would love to sell your work there some day....so maybe, one day..... ;)

  145. Congrats on and good luck with the new shop.
    Nothing gets done around here before at least half a pot of tea and some chocolate are consumed as a sort of pre-breakfast (the hobbit in me calls this first breakfast) while I sit, staring into space, with my two cats on my lap. On a good day I might actually pet the cats during this wake-up ritual.

  147. Congratulations! What a great shop! I started my morning with coffee. Then, I made my three girls breakfast, got the oldest off to her summer job and brought the younger two to do some volunteer hours at at Wellness House; a wonderful place that helps families that are surviving cancer. I have great kids :)

  148. The shop looks amazing, doll! Congrats!

    My morning? How about less sad than I was when I went to bed? I'm up and moving around and ready to dance and finally get back to work after almost 3 extremely-stressful weeks.

  153. Such wonderful news - I hope the shop is a roaring success as you deserve it so much.

    I started my morning giggling with my fiance before boarding a train to work whereby I thought I text my fiance to tell him I loved him, but instead text my friend. So ended up giggling on the train!

  158. I started my morning sluggishly with a summer cold (what a drag). However, I cleared my work table so that I can play with glue/paint/paper, etc...! I also did a goofy (low on technique, high on fun) sketch in my "SketchBook Delight" book!
    You're shop looks great - wishing all the success to you and your Mom.
