My summer plan is to clean up my studio and rearrange my supplies. Not quite fun, but I have to do it!

I have a very ill husband, so I will be taking care of him. It is such a joy to see your out and about posts. The places you guys go are amazing. We built our own house, so your posts about all your DIYs are interesting to us too. Of course there is also your beautiful, clever art work....don't get me started! :D

This summer we are traveling the US and Canada in our camper! We've already seen some beautiful places, including the Oregon coast! I'd love to add some online art classes to our road schooling adventure. :)

maeve said...

Going to try this again - my comment keeps disappearing on me! I plan on playing with my watercolors this summer while enjoying some of your classes (I've already signed up for some previous classes). I am keeping a sketchbook and paints on the kitchen counter so I can stop and play a few times during the day. Your blog is always inspirational for me! And Lucy is just adorable!!! Thanks for the giveaway.

Two selfish fun plans this summer are 1) taking a printed textiles summer school and 2) finally being able to set up my own art space - I can't wait! Thanks for the giveaway!

Mary Sane said...

Would love to win this! My plan for the summer is to paint outdoors, which I've never done before but always wanted to do. I've borrowed an outdoor easel and now I'm trying to gather courage to start painting.

I'm going to retire and spend time with the grandkids swimming, picnicking, hiking, sun bathing, whatever I want. Thanks for the chance to win a spot in your classes.

Virginia said...

Morning - ooh a bundle of fun classes - plans for the summer - trying not to work too much so I can spend time with said 14 year old would be a start. We've been given a long list of things he is going to have to know and understand for his English exams so hoping to create some artwork with him linked with that, these classes would be a fabulous addition to that as I'm trying to ensure it's not a summer full of Xbox! Can't wait to see what you and your family get up to!

Jane said...

Oh wow these look fabulous classes. I have just finished my silver smithing class for summer and Tuesdays are my only free non "paid" work day so I am looking forward to spending some of my Tuesdays exploring new ideas in my studio.I have recently started an art journal and I hope to fill lots and lots of pages. Thanks for offering such an amazing giveaway x

MadameRenard said...

Hi! Thank you for this amazing giveaway!!!
I wrote a summer list in my Moleskine, making a list of things I want to do and make. Probably the most funny thing is painting and stampin on fabric, but trips to the beach are good the same :)

Saskia said...

Wow, wow!!! All those summer-classes are looking like FUN! I'm sure I'll have time enough for creativity between travelling to Austria (I love mountains) and the Belgian Coast (I love sea)! :) But I'm also happy when I'm at home during holidays, time for family, time for reading, time for watching the birds at our garden! So fingers crossed for a FUN summer! Smiles from Belgium, Saskia :)

SisterCraft (Наталия Балабанчук) said...

Thank you for your art, your blog and your giveaway! We have a lot gardening work to do this summer - my 4yrs old princess adores raspberries, so we definetely need to have it much more than we have it now in the garden. And the youngest princess turns one year this July, so I plan to throw a small mint party to celebrate her birthday)))

Our plan now is to help her get better so she can attend college in August. Love your classes and your new coloring pages! Thanks for all you do!

Thanks Alisa!

~Kristen~ said...

I didn't see my comment the first time I tried to post so if this is duplicated I apologize. We are spending our summer like every other summer (and fall and winter and spring!): spending as much time as possible in the White Mts in NH. It is our "happy place" and get up there as often as we can. Luckily it is just about a two hour drive from our home. We are also working on a home renovation so I am shopping for that! Fun! And getting in as much creative time as possible, per usual! :)

Jenn said...

Well something fun would definitely be taking your classes! I'd so love to! But we are heading out on a family vacation up north to the lake. Lots of fishing, eating, reading and relaxing with my family!

Thank you for the opportunity of this giveaway! Something fun.... hmmmm.... I plan on doing new stepping stones for a little trailer we just purchased down by the Jersey shore - When we made them for our house (years ago) I mixed our own cement and used the bottom part of a plant pot which was the perfect size ... we used magnet letters to spell out our name and added odds and ends that were an important part of us!!!! I think we need to do this again!!!! It was so fun and I think you even blogged about it once when you made them with your own daughter!!!!! That will be one of our "special family art days".

This summer I'll be experimenting mix-media. I made my own journal and I'm excited to start painting and get messy. ;)

I'm moving this summer. That's fun right? Actually we're hoping to turn it into an extended trip up the coast from Santa Monica to Seattle, complete with sketchpad and watercolors. We'll definitely be spending some time with friends on the Oregon Coast.

I have only one vacation planned. I'm taking one of my daughters and her two boys to visit my parents near Yosemite National Park. There will be four generations together. We will play in the creek, go to the Loggers Jamboree, swim at the lake and have the best chocolate malts at a little shop that's only open in the summer.

Natalia said...

Here in Argentina it´s winter, but I would love to win this :)

Penny said...

We don't have a lot of money for elaborate summer plans but our favorite things to do are simple and usually happen in our backyard: grilling and eating on the patio every night, gardening, playing baseball or soccer with the kids, making s'mores, and my favorite - fixing up a cute little play corner for the kids with painted rocks, stepping stones and re-painting a hand-me-down wood playset we just received.

Özge Başağaç said...

This summer i will be visiting all the lighthouses in the Turkish Aegean Coast. It is part of my studies for my PhD. But it involves a lot of fun, mainly because of the locations of the lighthouses. Some are on islands, some are on moles, some on high lands and some are right in the sea. So we ride a car, sometimes we climb the mountains and sometimes sail a boat to reach the lighthouses. I meet lovely lighthouse keepers and other people, taste local food and swim in between. I am also hoping to document my travels in my art journal. Maybe on other mediums, too. So happy creating :)

Véro said...

We are planning to have a bike trip on the French coast and as usual do lots of drawing and painting, knitting, cooking, walking. Thanks for this very nice opportunity

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas said...

I'm having a memory moment...summer holidays spent colouring under our huge weeping willow tree. Playing with these courses would bring a lot of that glorious feeling back! Vancouver is awesome in the summer, and I plan on spending a lot of time at farmer's markets, and summer festivals!
