Very nice give away again! My favorite part of summer is going to the beach with my two girls (who are 3 and 5). We don't really live near the beach, so we don't go very often, but as I see the happiness on their faces whenever they see the sea, I wished I could go every day!

joojoo said...

my favorite part of summer is going out in the evenings and watch fireflies in the Lawn (at UVA) . . . and also going out for picnics :)

Emma said...

Everyone is outside working in their gardens or riding their bikes out into the countryside....of course taking their camera with them:),,,and right now it is realllllly hot here so everyone is HAPPY.

...the warmth of the sunshine..... A rare thing in NE England!

Summertime for me means time spent outdoors with DH and the kiddos-- baseball games, walking trails in our city together, and family vacations.

Stéphanie said...

Being able to walk barefoot in the grass! Oh how I love that!

labunka said...

Everything about summer is beauiful. But the best thing for me are cold mornings when you have to wrap yourself in a blanket while having breakfast outside but you know the day is going to be hot because the sun is beginning to shine and as it aproaches, you can put the blanket away and enjoy.

Dear Alisa,
Love your work and follow your blog for quite a while. I really appreciate the opportunity of a free participation to one of your classes. Coming back to summer – I love the vacation time because it allows me to spend more time with my daughter and with my passion for painting.
Wish you all the best and keep doing your lovely work!

Even though right now in Australia its winter! one of the things I love about summer, is the smell of wild jasmine that comes into flower, it is truly one of the best smells and it always puts a smile on my face. That and of course frozen yoghurt!

celine said...

I am from Malaysia (in Asia) so it is summer the whole year long for me. :) So best part of life (since it is summer the whole year long) for me is being a child of God.

Kate Stuckey said...

The best part about Summer is being able to go to your favourite park or and beach for a picnic. The sun, sand/grass, breeze, great food and great company = perfection!

The best part of summer are the evenings, when we sit on our little balcony (we live in the middle of Cologne) and the light slowly fades away into darkness. We have candles, beer, wine, fruits and ourselves.

My favorite thing about summer is being with the kids more and the long lazy no schedule days with them. They only have a few more left here at home so I want to savor it all. Being outside more is a very close second!!

Thanks again Alisa!!

Alisa, thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to participate in your class.
We are fortunate to be experiencing a long spell of lovely sunny weather here in the UK (the past few summers have been mainly dull and grey). My favourite part of summer, is sitting in the garden in the evening, listening to the chorus of the birds singing. Enjoying the the fragrance of the honeysuckle wafting on the soft breeze. A perfect time to get out the paints, and a glass of Pimms... :)

JO SOWERBY said...

I love the sun because it means I feel better, I have Bipolar and S.A.D. so I can stock up on my happy hormones for the winter. I also love reading outdoors, meeting friends, the flowers, smells of cut grass and going to the seaside,

Adriana Oliveira said...

Hi Alisa, thanks for this opportunity! My favorite part of Summer is afternoons ends spent at the beach, when the light is gold and the sun is warm, but not burning, and people start to go home. There's a kind of magic in those hours, and time seems to stop!

The Great British Summertime!! soggy festivals, rained out Wimbledon and eating fish and chips in a steamed up car on the sea front!!!

My favourit part of summer is that it is still light in the evening when I leave the office! It's as if I can finally LIVE life and not just work and sleep!

mergie said...

The best part is late at night when everyone is sleeping and I am drawing. I leave the back door open & can hear the frogs making all kinds of racket. And when the ice cream man comes of course. (he doesn't come at night).

Nadette said...

Thera said...

Wow! My summerdream! Let me first introduce myself a little... My name is Thera and I'm from The Netherlands. Since I became a mummy 2,5 yrs ago and pre-occupied with diapers, feeding, cleaning, working and 'happy-familying' I kinda got lost myself... A few weeks ago I had a tearfullmoment of enlightenment and felt HUNGRY for me-time and especially for creating again... My life used to be full of creativity but somehow I lost it. Searching on the internet gave me your blog which had me inspired. Now I have the materials lying on a tray on the table here, but the blank page scares me... I feel like I need just that little more encouragement to just go ahead and create again and now you are offering this great gift; This summer I am really hoping for colourfull drawings and a freed soul! Love from The Netherlands :)

Kate said...

It would have to be the smell of suntan lotion - my favourite in the world. Also, long, long days outside.
Although I've been living in Asia for the past year, so I haven't had a summer really, more like monsoon season :)

MadameRenard said...

Thank you for this giveaway!!! :)
My favourite part of summer? Uhm, probably the beginning and the end, when sun is not burning so hot (consider I live in Southern Italy) and fresh air comes to restore you :)
And, of course, beach time!!! :)

Papper said...

I love escaping to the country to enjoy long leisurely walks through fields and woods. To see the huge array of wild flowers, experience the delicious aromas and be part of the warm buzz of summer heat.

Jennifer said...

Iced coffee, summer dresses, and fresh fruit at the farmer's market!

marjolijn said...

A spot in your summerschool would be great. I love my own garden. Eating my own fruit and veggies. But going to the Provence in France and smelling the lavender is great as well. Just close your eyes and move your nose!

tracy files said...

Summer is the most magical fun time of the year! My most cherished activities of summer our taking my nieces out exploring. I don't have kids of my own but I am blessed my nieces live down the street. They LOVE art so our favorite past time is to take our watercolors to the beach and paint pictures of waves, beach balls, and beautiful rocks. We also love taking our paints to the community garden and painting birds and veggies that are growing!

Thank you for all your inspiration!

Thoughts on thrifty said...

I live in an area, referred to by many as "the cold frozen North". Actually, I live not far from Toronto, Canada. I am sitting on my patio, drinking my morning coffee and scoping what's new on my favorite blog (yours). The ability to sit outside and enjoy the cool morning air, while I watch my husband water our vegetable garden, full of hope and promising tomatoes, is definitely one of my favorite things.

Laurie said...

My favorite part of summer is the yummy fruits and vegetables that are in season! The colors, the taste...yum...

Christine Holmes said...

As it's winter here in Australia...raining, windy and cold...I long for summer sunshine and warmth...thanks for the chance to take your summer sketchbook class...it would add lots of fun to winter

Paige said...

We've just moved onto the water in the eastern shore of Virginia so my ideas of summer have changed in a good way! My favorite part of this summer so far, is rushing home in time to see the sun set. Because my house faces the bay, we see the sun set down on the water. I am LOVING it. Laying in the hammock and chatting with the boys, and if we stay out long enough, watch the night stars appear. In the morning we head out to check the tide and watch sailboats and fishing trawlers pass by. This is something we will NEVER forget, the years we lived here.

Stacey Vadaj said...

summer means hanging out in the pool with the kids, long walks with my hubby in the evenings and all the beautiful colors.

Cindy Tobey said...

Spending time at the Lake Michigan shoreline. Thanks for the chance to win.

Sandy said...

There are so many things I love about summers especially in the PNW but the thing I most covet about summer are the sheer length of our days, it's a constant reminder to go slow and savor every little thing. This helps me get through our long rainy winters.

My favorite part of summer is the memories. Growing up we spent the summers at a campground, running around like wild children, free as the wind.

We plan to start camping this year with our 7 year old daughter, and I really hope that she is able to experience some of the joys I got to as a kid.

Tapintoart said...

My favorite part of summer is the warmer weather and the sunshine! Being in Wisconsin, we don't get it for very long so I try and enjoy it while I can! Would love this class, thanks for the chance!

My favorite part of summer is the early morning light. I'm a morning person so I feel like I get a few more hours added to my day. Thanks for the chance to win one of your classes, Alisa!

My favorite part of summer is watching the evolution of my children's nature journals. Their drawings have grown to be so thoughtful and reflective.

Hi Alisa, I am a huge fan of your blog and your work, and I'd love to be part of this class. Since my 'day job' is teaching science in middle and high school, my favorite part of summer is extended unstructured time - the polar opposite of my work schedule. Thanks for your generosity all the time!!

Summer for me means change of rythm, some relaxation, charging up internal batteries, finding inspiration, opening my mind to new things, places and people (I luckily travel to unknown places in the world)... It broadens my mind, my views, my thoughts, my inspirations,my knowledge and it's always too short!!!!!!!

My favorite part of Summer is EVERYTHING! Even though I live in Houston and we have our famous heat humidity and mosquitos. To name a few: Iced Coffee, my annual tie dye party, early morning sunshine through sprinklers, hosting my daughter's writing group, smell of freshly cut grass, long long days that never end, fireworks, and the general feeling of freedom even though I still have to work.
Thanks for your blog - I have been a fan for a long time and made bunches of versions of the flip-flop tutorial.

My favorite part of summer is being able to take my dog somewhere in the country and watch him just RUN and RUN and RUN with wild abandon. Reminds me to always follow my bliss.

Karen said...

my favorite part of summer is feeling the breezy but warm evenings as I am taking a walk with my kids during these longer, sweeter days.

thank you so much for the opportunity, this looks like a wonderful class!

Hi Alisa,
My favorite part of summer is all the sunshine. The days are the longest during the summer in Michigan and I love the sunshine the most.

Summer for me means being free of timetables and schedules, being able to absorb the heat and the sun, being able to go places, to have time to smell the flowers!

I am looking forward to time with my 2 granddaughters. we love crafting, hiking, beach and camping. Hope to teach crochet this summer :)

My favorite time of summer is having my teenagers not in school so we can interact more. They are such cool kids and I learn from them.

My favorite part of summer is that my kids are home. I love having them here, even though sometimes they drive me crazy! I'm always sad when they start school again.
