Today I started my day waking up on a couch with a dog named Einstein looking at me mournfully, waiting to go for a walk. I'm dog-sitting for friends while they're in Costa Rica. Thankfully, Einstein was patient while I made my tea!

audrey said...

Alisa...
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.
Have a great day, Alisa!
♥ audrey

Hi Alisa, Wow you've been busy since I last checked in with you - babies, grand openings, lovely flower art. . . congrats on all!

I love the new header, and I love your art work. But I won one of the last giveaways and never received anything. :(

Aidel Knaidel said...

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.

Michelle Cummings said...

Wonderful shop! So happy for you!
I would love to win! :)
I started the morning with thoughts of creating, lots of sewing and things to make.

Jan said...

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!

Melissa M (Lagaz) said...

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 ;)

qwiksave said...

Awww! SO disappointed you aren't offering international postage yet. I started my morning crafting as I craft very late at night & into the next morning. Great shop, good luck with it all.

I'm afraid my morning started out poorly - I awoke from having the craziest dreams ever, and then while I was getting ready for work my dog peed everywhere and I was late to work because I was cleaning it up! Grr!

Sonya Luna said...

With a warm bowl of tortilla soup!

felicia said...

Love the new shop!

I always start my morning with 2 eager little faces asking for their breakfast. And then mama gets her coffee!

Amy said...

Congratulations on the store. It looks amazing. :)

I woke up freezing (my husband is very hot natured, so our bedroom stays freezing, even in the dead of summer). So, I started my morning with a nice, long, relaxing HOT shower.

dawn said...

Congratulations on your new shop! :)

I began the day struggling to open my eyes, then I had a cup of tea and a cereal bar, then painted a couple of doors :)

This morning started with coffee, peanut butter toast, and a sliced up peach. Then I walked 15 minutes in the blazing heat & humidity to deliver a package, and by the time i got home i was as dripping wet as when i got out of the shower 2 hours earlier. Yuck!

Adriana Oliveira said...

Hi Alisa, your shop is beautiful (I love the banner!), congratulations! I know exactly what I would pick from there :)

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 ;).

Ruby said...

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!

First, congratulations on opening your shop! The shop looks great! This morning I came to work as an Executive Assistant. Last night I worked hard to get a quilt finished for my mom's birthday. Monday through Friday, my nights are more creative than my days.

congratulations on your shop -- I've been following your blog for a while now and you are very talented and inspiring.

Lovely stuff in the shop! And, when I get my house organized after the whirlwind of painting going on, I'm going to need some stuff to decorate the rooms. I've already got my eye on something in your shop!

Excited for your shop! I spent my morning sleeping in- something I won't get to do very often in a few days when our son makes his grand entrance into this world!

SaraswatiChB said...

I always start the mornings with the same ritual (I've developed a fondness for good rituals after years of chaos). I drink half a litre of water while writing down a list of five things I'm grateful for. Plus I read something inspirational. It's a great way to start a day.

Mandee said...

Congratulations on your lovely shop! I started my morning by reading some inspirational quotes and sipping on some tea, before heading to work :-)

Julie K. said...

This an amazing accomplishment. You are where I'd love to be in 10 years ... book writing ... full time art ... a shop ... my work in galleries - you are an artist success story! I was up at 5:30 am (two weeks now!) for a power walk with my neighbor to come home to my coffee and quiet meditation and prayer before my family of 5 is off and running! Would love to take another of your classes with that generous givaway!

Krys72599 said...

I started the morning checking to see if your store was up and running yet!

Patrice said...

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..... ;)

Previously Pants said...

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.

Courtney said...

Congratulations! Absolutely beautiful. I started my day with a large cup of coffee, checked email and enjoyed the quiet before the family got up and moving.

Kathy said...

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 :)

Samantha Kira said...

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.

Helen said...

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!

Teleri said...

Congratulations :) May the customers be with you.
I started this morning waking up at the house of my someday-parents-in-law in the room my boyfriend used to live as a child. Sadly he was not there since he's in Norway at the moment.

Congratulations! I can't wait to take a look at the new store. This morning I woke up to my husband working out on the Wii. I on the other hand poured myself a tall mocha/coffee drink to get me going!

Unknown said...

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.

Congratulations on the new shop, Alisa ! It looks so awesome !

my morning started with a wish that I could go back into the dream I was having - I was kind of crushing on a new boyfriend (don't tell my hubby-love of my real life, okay ?!)

Hope you and all your sweet projects are growing well !
