I'm starting my week by developing a plan for better project and time management. I'm working on fine art, embroidery, illustrations, (etc) and I start a new job Thursday. I also hope to start graduate school in January--so I figure there's no better time than the present to 'get my life together.' I've plopped tasks into my iCal and I plan to stick to the deadlines i've created for myself. Already i've added some clarity into my creative life.

I was stamping long before i got dressed this morning.

Loves seeing the pic of you and your little one on twitter yesterday. So precious!

Alisa, thanks!
I started my week staying in university until six o'clock in the afternoon, but when I got home I discovered that it was the book of Biology that I had expected it so much!

I am starting the week with sewing a new bag for all my 'stuff' made from an old corduroy pleated skirt. I need some more creativity in my life. I tend to get cranky when I am not creating enough. . .

lil Me said...

Exciting giveaway!
I am starting my week by trying to catch up. I have been so behind on school, work, cleaning my house, dinner date rain checks that I am feeling a little not "me"

Linda Strowbridge said...

It's so nice that you're doing this giveaway Alisa. And I'm amazed that you can muster time for work with a newborn in the house. I started my week by getting up earlier than normal and claiming an hour in daylight to decide on a color palette for my next quilt and pull a selection fabrics before I had to settle into my day job. It was definitely a nice start to the week.

Jinglbells said...

Thanks for the great opportunity to change our creative lives with your books and class! I am starting my week cleaning up from the weekend so I can start off fresh with no excuses to create!

" me " said...

oh waw !
imagine that I would win that one!


I start my week always to early in the morning...
Actually, that's not true because i have to wake up at 9 and for some people that's already late.
But i am a night owl and than is 9 o' clock to early :-)

But then I put on some soft cherry music and i make myself a nice cup of tea and then I'm ready for the new week !

Karin said...

Sadly I am starting my week with a sick day. Have had a bad cold and now have lost my voice! I am spending the day under a quilt reading and knitting and drinking tea.

Briana said...

I am starting my week traveling home from California after vacation. would love to win this one!

Emma said...

I started my week with a mug of fresh coffee while enjoying my sacred 15 minutes of peace and relaxation before the day begins. Instead of my usual blog and pinterest fix I picked up my sketchbook and carried on with adding colour to some leaf sketches. I'm taking your sketchbook delight class and trying to find my muse.... not there yet, but I'm sure I'll find something that clicks!! I'm loving your course and will definitely be signing up for the next one.

May I be so bold as to ask ... Is there a particular order to the classes (I don't want tours anything out) and are there any printables for reference when sketching away from the computer?

Thank you for this opportunity!

aldiel@comcast.net said...

I am starting my week by being grateful for a wonderful husband, family, friends...as well as good coffee, a good book and an abundance of creative ideas. No better way for me to start the week!

Jennifer said...

Hello, Alisa. I want to tell you how wonderfully inspiring your blog is, how beautiful your journalling is, and what a lovely person you are. It is one of the highlights of my day to open my email and see updates to your site. My week has started off by designing games for our annual Halloween party this weekend. Hope you have a great week...and a restful one.

Jennifer said...

I would like to tell you how wonderful your blog is: so very inspiring, beautiful, creative and colorful. Seeing what new, wonderful designs, photos and journal entries you have posted to your site is one the things I look forward to most when I open my email account. Gives me a great start to my day. Thank you!

This week is starting off with me designing a few games and decorations for our annual family/friends halloween party and bonfire. Very fun. I wanted to paint one of my pumpkins with leaves, and punch pinholes around the shapes for the light to shine through. Thanks for the awesome idea! Hope you have a great (and restful) week :)
