a free little class for you!

It's only two days into December and I am TOTALLY burned out on shopping, sales, coupons, marketing, promotion and CONSUMERISM (and I am saying this as a small business owner who depends on consumerism). Over the weekend I had a lot of time to reflect on how I could break from the tradition of buying and selling and instead, give back to all of you! What I came up with is a free little online class called Holiday Play that I put together to get you inspired this holiday season.



 With a collection of over 25 online classes, I have a library full of lessons, videos, photos, inspiration, techniques and ideas that I have used to create Holiday Play. This class is a mash up of all my favorite lessons pulled from a variety of my online classes over the years (Watercolor Bliss, SnapShot Delight, Creative Cuisine, Create Daily and more). The class includes 20 posts and the concept is that you have 1 post a day (an idea, a project, a technique) to work through or get inspired by for twenty days or as long as you want to come and go. My hope is to provide a little added inspiration and creativity to your holidays!

You can visit the class at

Alisa, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love this idea, how fun to just play for 20 days instead of stressing or shopping. I can't wait to dive in and be inspired by your beautiful art.
THANK YOU AGAIN FOR BEING SO GENEROUS!! Take some time and slow down too, enjoy that sweet baby girl and hubby.

Thank you! What a generous gift! I have book marked it and will spend some time with it over the next few days. I've been simplifying my own holidays for a while for the same reasons you talked about. My children will all be home this year for the first time in 4 years. I'm trying to keep it personal and about our time spent together.

maeve said...

Thank you Alisa . . . a gift of yourself and your many talents to all of us is such a beautiful thing. I too am trying to slow down and enjoy this wonderful season of joy and blessings. This year my family is joining me in doing a "handmade Christmas". I am not missing the craziness of holiday shopping one bit. I go into my studio/sewing room and play instead. I so appreciate your inspiration and look forward to viewing it frequently. Thank you so very much for this wonderful gift and surprise!!!! You are amazing!

Miss Alisa, you are something else!! You are such a giving soul. You just keep surprising us. May your beautiful family have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful Happy New Year. It was nice seeing the picture of you when you were pregnant. So beautiful! You are talented beyond words. Sending you a big bear hug! Thank you so much ;D)

Kolein said...

Social media has prematurely gotten me in the holiday spirit. As I was perusing the aisles of a shop searching for Advent gifts for my children I stopped. Stop. Stop this crazy thing. So instead, we are having a gift-less, happier creative ADVENTure!

Thank you for offering this special treat! I'm so looking forward to PLAYing!! And will be using it as ART class for our boys in our home school!

Happiest of holidays to you and your sweet family!

How wonderful! I look forward to enjoying a little arty treat each day. I stumbled across your blog 3 years ago and had no intentions of being creative... fast forward 3 years and I now have my own 'studio' of sorts and LOVE every second of the opportunities I get to be creative- 100% thanks to you. This free class is another gift from you that I am so grateful for.
