I've been so excited for your store to open! I love everything inside.

This was a good morning. My husband got up with the baby like he always does and I got to sleep in a bit, then we beat the heat with a nice stroll in the morning light. A good start to a hot day!

Gill said...

Congratulations!
How exciting!!
I started my morning by feeding my chickens and hanging the washing on the line!

Congrats on the store! I started my morning eating cereal and watching tv with my daughter :)

Stephanie said...

Congrats and best wishes on your new shop! I started the morning with a hug from my husband.

Nora said...

Congratulations Alisa!

My morning started chaotic. I have two children 20 months apart and the baby usually wakes up at least twice a night to eat however, this morning I received a rude awakening when my 2 year old tapped me on my head and said, " ma ma, I poo peed mama, I poo peed". Who wants to clean up at 4 am?? Oh lord, I don't! After the clean up I went back to bed and we all over slept until noon! LOL! I brewed some African beans from Starbucks, and I think everything is going to be OK! Just another day in motherhood!

Unknown said...

Shop is wonderful! I started by day at 5:20 hiking my favorite trail in Phoenix before the big heat rolls in. No better way to start the day! Twyla Marti

Just on a side note, I was confused by the home page on your store, I thought at first those images were all you had for sale, didn't see the nav buttons at the top at first.

Today is another day that I am privileged to spend with the two lights of my life, my sweet little granddaughters, the Special K's (2 nd 4), as I call them. We have a standing date for Wednesdays to go to the library and then to lunch, so I began this day bouncing out of bed thinking of them and another week of watching them love books. You must check into a lovely little book called Hurry, Hurry, perfect for your little one. It is by Eve Bunting, and one of our favorite summer discoveries.

Mrs. Skvortsov said...

I started my morning at 3 am because I had a long day at work. An energy drink and determination got me through.

Kathy said...

The shop looks great. How did I start the morning? At 5am, communing with the snooze alarm. Broke up an argument between two cats (no contact - just verbal exchange!). Then a 2 hour drive to take elderly father to dr appt., 2 hours in waiting room, cheap lunch, 2 hours back with a stop at closing Borders (a few tears shed - I'm a former employee), where your book was not in stock. Home now and it's close to 100 degrees in Michigan. Above cat wants to go out. Not happening. Looking forward to shopping in your new digs. congratulations on a great start!

Amanda St.Clair said...

I would like to say I started my day feeling refreshed and renewed...but the truth is I started my day hitting the alarm a couple times and then forcing myself out of bed. At least I woke up to one of my pups licking my face. :-)

Erinne said...

I was awoken this morning by cold feet. My husband got the HVAC guy to come and finally fix our A/C unit. I quickly found my blankie, crawled underneath, pulled in my coldy toes and went back to sleep. Nothing like summer mornings with nothing to do and no expectations.

I started my day with a nice long walk with my pups and a good long watering of my garden.

I started my day with a little sunshine and a hot coffee, then a beautiful (and painfully slow) hobble to the metro for a day at the office.

How wonderful! After all your hard work, I'm sure this is a dream come true. I started my morning s-l-o-w-l-y, with blueberry muffins.

Congratulations on your new shop. It is so exciting. I will be shopping often.
I started my day by letting my chickens out of their cute little house into the garden. It is fun to see these girls so excited to look for bugs in the grass. "Up with the chickens!" as they say.

First, let me say that I love your blog and your tutorials. I made a pair of the embellished flip flops - so cute!
I started my morning out packing up our van and driving home with my family from Ohio back to Illinois. Hot, hot, hot!!

Congratulations! I started my day with a couple cups of coffee, got myself ready and accompanied my hubby to his doctor's appointment.

Here's hoping I win!

Hi, Alisa! Congratulations on you new shop. After coffee, etc. I stared my day painting fabric in an Art Quilt class at Idyllwild Arts. Your class at CREATE started me on this amazing path so thank you for the great start to my new passion and my day!

Diane said...

Congratulations on your shop - it is full of beautiful things.
I started my very wet day trying to work out which mechanic is telling the truth and which mechanic is not. :( I'm sure there are better ways to start the day.

I started my morning the way I often do in the summer: when get up I laze around in bed--because I'm on vacation, and I routinely stay up until 3 or 4 in the morning! So I'm up the same amount of time as most people; it's just during radically different hours!

Nicely done. So clean and crisp and inviting.

You have a typo, though... you meant "your" expectations, right?

I started my morning to the phone ringing and then hearing my son's voice on the other end......can you help me Mom? He had forgotten his list of classes to register for the fall semester at College!!
Thanks for the chance to win one of the gift certificates.

I started my day slowly and quietly. Hubbby was sleeping since he'd just gotten home from working all night, so I got on my laptop in another room and checked out my favorite art and letter writting blogs, while listening to HGTV in the background. Guess, who's blog I've been to twice today. ;)

Love the shop. It is just beautiful. I've got my fingers crossed that I win, but if I don't, I know I'll be buying some of your stationery soon. Good luck!

Oh How I would love to win. I started my morning with a bike ride, then a cuppa coffee, then a shower, then a bit of art journaling.

I am so glad you (and mom) opened up your shop. Everything looks beeeee-yoooo-tiful!!! Okay...I started off my morning in the best way...a huge hug and smile from my toddler (she is usually a little grouchy first thing...so it was a treat today!!). and...of course...a coffee!!-Soraya

I started with a morning walk up the hills in North Tustin. Early enough (7am) before the heat sets in.

New website looks great! and I like the great variety of your work.

I started my morning by getting the coffee brewing. I quickly put on more clothes in order to be decent enough to go outside on the off chance that someone would see me. I visited my two steel tubs full of my pumpkin babies!!!! They are thriving and I'm so excited to ultimately say that the first attempt at pumpkin growing was a success.

Congratulations on these new exciting developments!

My days always start with a cup of coffee while browsing my google reader!

Congratulations on your new shop!

I started my morning with a snuggly cat, a bowl of cereal and banana, email/Facebook, and then water aerobics. Not a bad way to start the day :)

Teeny said...

congratulations on the new shop, looks good. I started my morning with berries and yoghurt... and a very large stretch because my arms are killing me from the gym last night
