haute holidays online class and a GIVEAWAY!!

hh2
With the holidays right around the corner I decided to "re-release" my Haute Holidays online class. I created this online class a couple of years ago and recently spent some time updating and adding some new projects and inspiration. It is a little different from my other online classes because it is all project based- lots and lots of projects to inspire!


IMG_2984
This class will motivate you to create your own stylish handmade holiday! You will learn simple and easy techniques, unique projects that incorporate paint, fabric, recycled materials, motivation to spend little or no money on decorations and gifts. A variety of videos, projects, photos and inspiration to start creating your own haute holiday!

Registration for Haute Holidays starts TODAY and the class goes live this Friday, November 18th

I am offering the class at a reduced price- $40.00 this holiday season.

For all the details and to register hop on over to my online shop


AND as a bonus I will be giving away 3 free spots in the class-

To enter leave me a comment
Tell me your favorite things to create for the holidays.
I will draw three winners and announce them later this this week.

I remember vividly laughing so much I cried when stuffing those fabric sausages when I was about 16... *LOL*

Hi Alisa,
I started creating large manila tags as little works of art. I place them under glass cloches as part of a holiday vignette. "Haute Holidays" is very intriguing. Thanks for sharing your creativity. I appreciate and admire your talent and hard work.

Last year, I spent the holiday season creating a scrapbook featuring photos from each Christmas of my childhood. It was wonderful to go through family photo albums, selecting pictures of me at different ages with my parents, grandparents, and aunts/uncle.

Christmas has always been my favorite holiday...but it's not quite the same now that all 4 of my grandparents have passed. This book allows me to keep these people and my memories close to my heart.

Have a great holiday with your little family.

Laure Janus ~ Little Joys Studio said...

My favorite thing to create is a feeling of safety and warmth in my home and my spirit. My art creations add to that feeling, of course, but it's really more of an attitude of acceptance and joy in the moment. There are too few places that offer that "hug" feeling, so I strive to create it year round. Thanks for offering the chance to take what looks like an amazing and inspiring class.

Melanie said...

I love making my December Daily journal ... and then filling it up day by day. Those are my favorite 'decorations'!

Moments with Me and Mine said...

I love cooking up a storm and we are doing our first ever Christmas breakfast at home this year as we have such a hot summer here in Australia we decided it was time for a change. I have already picked out some fantastic recipes I want to try and one that I am so excited about is a Christmas Neopolitan cake, yummo. Every year I make something for the house, haven't work out what for this year but because we are having a Christmas breakfast I am thinking paper lanterns around our patio and have started collecting coffee jars of which I will decorate with paper, twine and doilies and have little tea candles inside, just saying this out aloud is getting me excited, thanks for the giveaway, fingers and toes crossed.

As always, any of your pictured ornaments looks amazing for me so I'll be very happy to learn any of your projects.
Besides, I have two children (5 and 2 yrs old) that love to make craft with mum so if any of these projects are "child friendly" it would be the cherry on the top ;-D Thanks for the chance.

ModishAppeal said...

I usually make banana bread, but mostly I use my KIDS! Yes I take photos of them for the grandparents and put them into photo books or just blow up one of the great group shots I have of them. My kids and I love to make things for the family and they really appreciate it. IT lasts them even after the holidays are over! My grandmother said of her photo book one year,"I felt like I just had a visit from you all!" that was the greatest complement ever! thanks for this chance!!!

Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Amy said...

I make my niece a new sweater every year!

becky said...

I like to create some type of creative theme for wrapping all the gifts. This Christmas I'm using brown butcher paper from a huge roll I bought for $1...and then I'll be bright and varied on the ribbons and package decorations. I love beautiful gifts, but I hate to spend much money on the outside....rather spend it on the gift. So this is always kind of a personal challenge each year.

Thanks so much as I am inspired by your work daily. I would love to do this class.

JenniB said...

I'm a dutch woman and I love your art. This is the first christmas without my daughter Madelief, she died 8 februari 2011 because of a braintumor on the age of 11. I loved to create christmas ornaments with her and now I have to find a new way. This class would be inspirational!

Cathy said...

I have a party for friends, a sit down dinner & gift exchange and I love to come up with a creative theme and something differnt every year

moofy said...

I love to bake cookies, and quick breads. Since my daughter moved away (from Texas to Washington) I haven't really felt like doing much for the celebration of the holidays. Now that I have a new grandbaby,my heart has changed and this class would be the perfect start for creating that perfect holiday ornament or symbol.
thanks for the chance to win!

Amy said...

My mother always decorated to the hilt for every holiday, and it was mostly with handcrafted items or simple kit items since (I didn't know) we didn't have much money as I was growing up. She suddenly died at the young age of 64 from a rare autoimmune disorder on May 17th, and she was always so proud of my artistic creations. As she lost brain function in front of my eyes on Mother's Day morning, one of the last things she said to me was how much she loved the Mother's Day card from me that she'd just opened, and how creative it was with 2 flower centers that were actually a pair of handmade earrings and a 3rd flower that was a handmade but simple vintage-style brooch. She said she couldn't wait to wear them, but sadly she wore the brooch to her grave. Mom's favorite things to create at the holidays were always intricately beaded ornaments, which I will forever treasure. Personally, I love making handmade gifts of any kind... whatever fits the person. And I could certainly use some inspiration after losing Mom, my 14-yr-old cat, and one of my Dad's 3 sisters all within a 5-week time span this year plus my mother-in-law 10 months earlier. I love the holidays, but part of me is dreading them terribly this year. Crafting is my escape and my best therapy. --ASJ

In my family, Christmas holidays are a time to celebrate all the blessings of the past year. My favorite things to create are warm wishes and charitable giving to others in need. My Christmas cards are all handmade and include a staged family picture.

I so look forward to making homemade treats, especially when it involves getting messy in the kitchen with my mom! Of course adding my own touches to the wrappings is something I totally dig! Thanks for offering the class, Alisa. I'm totally stoked about it.

THis is our first Christmas in our first home, so I am thinking of all kinds of projects...wreaths, cookies, ornaments, tree skirts...looking forward to starting some new traditions, too :)

My family celebrates Dutch Christmas and part of our tradition is drawing names to pick a person to give a gift to. Then we buy the gift, create a poem hinting at what it might be, and create a "disguise." It can get simple or elaborate. One year my uncle gave another uncle an igloo cooler. He bunched up newspaperto make a dome around the cooler and glued tons and tons of cotton balls on to make...an igloo! It's a lot of fun and good for a lot of laughs!

oooo! look at al these comments! I would LOVE to win this class. I really love your style, Alisa. My favourite decoration to create is ornaments for sure- they are great to have a bunch on hand to hand out as hostess gifts.

Anything homemade comes straight from the heart. I always tell my daughters that a homemade card is WAY more awesome to receive! Thanks for the give-away opportunity!

I'm new to sewing/crafting so I don't have any favorite creations yet - unless you count dozens and dozens of rugelach! This year I've had it in my head to do a simple felt garland for the fireplace mantel that my 2-year-old and 4-year-old daughters can help me with. I plan to use variations on the tradition colors - maybe lime green and deep red and robin's egg blue.
