updates from the studio and a giveaway!

Its been a whirlwind of creative activity around here and I have got lots to share. I have so much going on that I am splitting my updates into two days! Today I've got some shop updates and tomorrow I am announcing my 2013 studio class/retreat schedule. And I've got some fun giveaways both days!



Remember my post on stone statement rings? Well, I received so many emails inquiring if I would be selling them that I added a handful of one of a kind stone statement rings to the shop. I've collected smooth, flat stones from my favorite Oregon beaches and embellished them with pretty little doodles and then transformed them into rings.

You can view them HERE


I've also got new matted art prints made from recent paintings. My favorite is the one above called titled Trade Winds.  

You can view all of them HERE



I have a very limited supply of sets of hand carved doodle stamps back in the shop.

You can view them HERE



I've got a fun, messy canvas printable download. 14 pages of messy backgrounds from my own paintings to use in your mixed media projects HERE







And last...I am giving away THREE $50 gift certificates for my shop!
To enter leave me a comment and let me know how you start your Monday!
Later in the week I will randomly select three winners

I start my Mondays by walking my puppy and then come home to work on old music pieces that aren't finished

Mia Moreing Russell said...

Starting this particular Monday being thank-full.
Preparing to paint an acrylic piece 30x40 for my daughter.
For the past 5 years, I've dealt with spine surgery and now approaching a redo. Last week had thyroid surgery and I am grateful to God for a benign biopsy. So, this particular Monday I am thank-full for the freedom to be creative, even if the pace has slowed a bit, but knowing it is a God given gift and privilege to paint. Yay!
Thank you for all if your beautiful work.

olive said...

I started today as I do everyday by feeding the "oh I am so hungry" cat. She has to come first! Then I check out the blogs and get ready for work. Thank you for the chance.

Terri said...

Monday - like any day - starts with breakfast and then the blogs... love the quilt and art blogs!
Hugs

Danielle Janecek said...

my Monday usually starts like all other days. 4:00 am my lab / alarm clocks plops down on top of me and gives me kisses. I then wake up with my 30 min morning yoga routine and off to my studio with a cup of coffee for a little creativity before I'm off to my full time job.

yælæd said...

Definitely have to start with a coffee and stretching. Then checking all my blog updates!

Unknown said...

My Monday started off with getting my kids off to school :) To see them get excited to take on the day and go off into the world is scary and exciting, but I am grateful to watch them fly!! Thanks for a chance to win...Happy Monday to you!

At the gym...ugggh! Thanks for your generous giveaway!

Geez, you've been a busy girl... Monday starts like every other weekday - making müsli for the kids and getting them off to school.

Mondays are my husbands only day off so we spend the whole day together with our 2 year old daughter:) I usually get house work done on Mondays too;)

Truthfully? I started my Monday the same way I start most days: my three-year-old woke me up at six to wipe her bottom...

Jo Murray said...

As with every day my computer is first stop...emails, then reading list (which is HUGE). all while having a cup of tea.

A gift certificate would be lovely. My Monday (and every morning) starts when my 3 year old boy crashes through my bedroom door with a box of lego to show me what he's created. Every day since we got him his first lot for Christmas. I can't get him to draw/paint very much but he sure can create some wacky stuff out of those bricks!

terryb said...

I start my Monday (and every other day) with a shower and a sit down on the sofa with my computer and cup of coffee. THEN I check out all the wonderful blogs I follow and with all honesty, your blog is at the top of the list. You inspire me in ways you could never know. Thank you for all that you do!

Amber said...

My Mondays start with sweet little boy voices calling to me from their bedroom: "Mama! Time to wake up???"

ne_samo said...

I don't like Mondays, but the week has to start somewhere. After sleeping in on weekends, it's my job to wake up the kids early in the morning and pretending not to be grumpy, so they don't get grumpy :) Then I take them to school and it's of to work for me, too.

TandiArt said...

switching off the alarm and....going back to sleep again:) and switching off the alarm and...big cup of coffee!!!

Debbie Chouinard said...

Just left a comment but forgot my name. Guess the coffee has worn off.

Carrie said...

Monday mornings are mine. After a hectic weekend with the kids and hubby, the quiet is so calming. I try to start off Mondays doing something inspirational like watching the birds at our feeders or taking photos of the flowers our spring like weather has brought.

Adrienne said...

Well, usually I start my monday morning by getting up to go to class! I like to get up, grab my clothes quietly so that my husband can keep sleeping and then I grab breakfast and head out the door! Today I had to trudge through knee high snow to get to school because we had a big snow storm yesterday :)

Sharon Stanley said...

Hi Alisa, I start my Monday with a dog walk here in the Cotswolds. The mornings are crisp and cold over here in Blighty, lovely to blow away the Cobwebs and start a new week. Wishing you a good week. Louise xx

I work in an HR office and my Mondays start by doing payroll. It's usually a mad rush to get everything done so it's not completely uneventful... just not very exciting.

Sarah Vine said...

I adore your work! So inspiring. I usually start the week by eating some leftovers for breakfast. Cold pizza is a favourite. Today it was carrot cake. Usually I am very healthy! Ha. =0)

Pat Gill said...

I woke up this Monday morning thinking it was still the weekend!! It took me a few minutes to realize I had to get up and get ready for work--but, it's all good--I managed to sqeeze in a little time for sorting vintage clothing before I headed out! Hope I win!

Samantha said...

I start Monday by rubbing my 4 year old's back and telling him that I know he's tired but we still have to get up. Then I have to console him when he bursts into tears trying to explain something but can't get the right words out. Kisses and hugs and tears wiped away.

Michelle Joy Wecksler said...

This Monday I started the day with a cat jumping onto me to wake me up! :) We recently adopted a young cat and he is a handful! :) He loves playing with some of my art supplies - yarn, string, ribbon, fabric...He must have a creative spirit :) Thanks for all of your wonderful inspiration!!!!

Unknown said...

Hitting the snooze button, drink some tea, update the to-do list, walk the dog...off to work. Love your blog and thank you for a chance to win. Happy Monday everyone.

I need a good cappuccino to start my Mondays!

Eveline said...

I started my Monday by my work out routine that I started in January. I'm feeling so much better since I started that. And then I had the balcony door open for quite some time as it is starting to feel spring-like. It's been a lovely day.

Holly S said...

debbie h. said...

A hot shower, coffee with my hubby and an hour of so of sitting together watching the news and me doodling in my sketchbook or art journal. Then off to work to play with 15 two year olds:) Not to bad of a start to a day, right?

Amanda S. said...

Generally, I workout. Today, I walked to the train (I guess that's a workout too) so I could go to jury selection. Luckily I wasn't picked so tomorrow back to the usual workout.

Anonymous said...

Well, I have just started this Monday knowing that a week ago I became a grandmother for the first time. Sweet Charlie arrived two months early but is doing fine, progress is made in small steps. I just met him at the weekend but wasn't allowed to touch him as he's still in an incubator.
I love him so much!!
I'm looking forward to fun times like you have, Alisa, with your daughter.

I live and volunteer in a reforestation project in south India, so my Monday's start by waking up in a bamboo hut just before sunrise. It's a perfect way to start every day.

Turning off the alarm and thinking ... do I really have to get up right now!! Then slowly heading towards the kitchen to fix my cereal with honey (gotta have honey and lots of it). Then chow down on my cereal, drink whatever juice is in the fridge all while looking at my art books for motivation still trying to wake up!! I'm not a morning person. Definitely a night owl.
Keeping fingers crossed.

Anonymous said...

With gratitude. I practice gratitude every day, but on Mondays I offer it up on Facebook to let everyone post what they are grateful for. It is a positive way to start the week.

Madeline Rains said...

Oooo, I love that painting.
I start Mon. with coffee and three artist blogs, yours included. : ) Then I take my homeschooled son to his violin class in Atlanta, an hour away, and listen to the "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" podcast that we record for this trip every week.

Cindy Tobey said...

With a cup of organic green tea and my Bible. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

Stacy Kristine said...

It's especially difficult to get going on Mondays, since I am part of a house band for a speakeasy, and we play until 2am every weekend. So, I am typically not quite fully recovered by Monday morning. Caffeine, in either french press coffee or loose leaf tea, is a phenomenal way to kickstart my Monday. That, and a 10-minute morning yoga routine to stretch & get my blood flowing.

Lisa said...

Lots of coffee! Then the dentist...not so much fun. :)

ashleymoranyoga said...

I start my Monday with the hardest things on my weekly to-do list. Makes everything else in the week feel easy. Thank you for the giveaway :)

I started my Monday with the gym - after a 2 wk absense from beiing sick! UGH! then it was errands, cleaning & i managed to carve out a little time for some art just before I picked up my daughter from school!

jruminski said...

I like to daydream in the shower. Then it's off to get the boys up and ready for school. Then work out time followed by work! I have an art get together with my friends on Wed! Wish it were Mon and Wed!!!

Linda said...

Monday is my day off so I start with a mug of coffee and a quiet time in my favorite chair by the window.

Tina said...

As a stay-home-mom and a relaxed homeschooler, our Monday's don't always look all that different from any other day of the week. We get out of bed a bit after Dad, some days we eat breakfast before getting creative, but other days the creativity is a driving force and so we must make something before anything else. Those are my favorite days :0)

Kim said...

This week we are making maple sirup in Québec!;) Isn't a great way to start a week! Miam!

I start my Monday like every other day of the week (most of the time)... coffee and computer time. I love checking out the websites and blogs on my favorites list.... of course, Alisa's being one of them.

Caatje said...

I usually start my Monday complaining that it's Monday and my wonderful weekend is over. I'm so not a morning person, so the alarm going off at 6:30 makes me grumpy.

Unknown said...

I start my Mondays by hitting the snooze button at least twice before turning on dance music! :)

Jeannie said...

I started my Monday by packing the car, dropping Mom off at the nursing home to visit Dad, giving Dad a big hug goodbye, and hopping back in the car for the 5 hour journey home. This has been my every couple of weeks routine since December. I have watched the season change over Snoqualmie pass from mild to moderate winter, to crocus popping up and green showing through the snow. Soon wildflowers will be blooming and hopefully, so will Dad.

Hello!

I absolutely love your paintings and I was mesmerized by that first picture. How did you find or create your little work space? I was just asking because I am hoping to create one for myself soon and I'm not quite sure where to start. Any suggestions for me?

I start my Monday's very sluggishly! I think the song lyrics, "I don't like Mondays" were written for me!

Shine on!
