Fall updates and new announcements!

It’s been a year full of all sorts of changes so I wanted to take a few minutes and share a few new stores I’m in, where you can find my work and what new work I’m offering.  Plus I have a SUPER big announcement that I haven’t told anyone about yet. You’ll find that all the way at the bottom.  yep, I’m (not so subtly) sneaky like that.

At the end of July I ended my year at the studio, it was a really great time. I made a tough decision to listen to the inner voice telling me that even though it was great and parts I loved, it wasn’t a perfect fit.  I found myself producing and selling a lot of work, racing between home and the studio and yet somehow not any further ahead. I am learning to really appreciate that as much as I fight it, it’s when I quiet down and make myself sit in that silence for a bit that my best and deepest (most daring) ideas come to me.  2 days after moving out of the studio my family went on a 2 week road trip through Utah and out to Oregon and up to Washington and back through Montana. We did about 1/2 camping and 1/2 hotels. It was really great. Not only is the nature and site seeing incredible I am always amazed at how much it feeds my soul to take time away and be an observer. I let myself relax more, reserve judgement and just take it all in. I don’t think I’ve been on a vacation yet that didn’t change me and help me know myself better. Now with both the kids at school and preschool each day and after the changes I feel like I’m finding my groove again and hitting my stride.

NEW artwork, stores and more:

My music artwork is hanging on display until the end of the month at the Egg & I East restaurant in St. Paul (off Univ. and 280).

In a few weeks you’ll be able to start finding my Soulful Yoga artwork at the Living Waters Cafe. 12201 Minnetonka Blvd, Minnetonka, MN 55305

 

I have a few studios out east now carrying my Soulful Yoga series, you can also now find my prints, cards and some pallet artwork in Anoka, MN at the New Moon Metaphysical Store. They are great, and offer classes and more.

I have been expanding my small print selection.  These are small prints mounted into a 5″x7″ mat. They are ready to fit into a standard size frame that can be found at any store. People have been loving them to give as gifts and they are perfect to hang up around the office or a cubicle.  I have a few new selections on my Etsy page.

Harmony Project:

Lastly, I am excited to announce that I’ve hit the $2500 mark on my fundraising for my Israel trip!!  I thank each of you who have so generously donated and purchased bracelets from me the last 8 months.    I’m both trying to celebrate the moment and feel the gratitude and also know that I still have $7000 still to raise.  I have to admit that it is not in my comfort zone to feel so publicly vulnerable and at such risk to not reach my goal all while everyone is watching.  I am trusting that things will continue to come together and I know that I am meant to be over in Jerusalem next May.  I see such a need for what we’ll be doing over there. In fact I love it that I’m beginning to be abt le to use some of these same skills and perspective I’m learning for over there and apply them right here in my own town and in fact even my own family.  This entire journey is so beautifully teaching me and making me a better person.  I would love to ask you to take a look at all the bracelets I have on my website. I have gotten another 80+ in since I’ve shared before.  The earth tone brown seems to be the most popular this fall, there are just a few of those left.  You can view them by either color or style on the website. I will also have bracelets with me at each of the shows listed above.  You can see them here.

I also have an online fundraising drive going for the next 27 days. I am at $33 raised out of a goal of $500 on here.  If you can even donate $11 I’d be SO grateful.  There are some new incentives and gifts for donations this time also.  Please check it out. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/noelle-rollins-harmony-israel-palestinian-trip-round-2

VolleyBall and Football original Artwork September special

 

VballFootball_NoelleRollinsArt_SeptSpecial copy

Hello Volleyball and Football fans!  Do you have a child or grandchild who plays either of these sports? Great gift or use to decorate an office or family room.

Here are the details:

Sale is for 3 weeks. Due to the success of this years earlier art sales I’ve limited this art sale to only 20 of each sport. The special starts today Sept 13th and will end at 11:59pm on Sunday, Sept 29 or when the 20 originals are sold.  I am able to offer these super low prices because I will wait until the end of the 2 weeks and I will complete all paintings at the same time. This saves me tons of time on setup, cleanup, etc and I’m able to pass along those time savings to you in dollar savings.  All paintings will ship by October 8th.   All paintings are done on wrapped canvas (this means that you don’t see any staples on the sids of the canvas), the sides are painted black so the artwork is ready to hang up or you can frame if you’d like.  All paintings come with hanging hardware attached.  All artwork is signed by me, the artist.

SportsArt_ShopButton

If you choose to add a name or # it will be done in the following style (unless requested otherwise):

For Volleyball artwork the name or number will be in the bottom left corner and be in this style:

VolleyBall_Number_Example

 

Football will have # in bottom Right Corner in this style font:

Football_Font

 

Pass along to those you know that love these sports.  These also make a great and affordable coaches gift. Order now and have the team all pitch in, then have it ready to give at the end of the season.

lets get this pARTy stARTed

Hello! (tip: make sure you have images set to display on my emails)

I don’t know about you but as I’m wrapping up this year I can’t help but reflect on what 2012 has been for me. I think it’s important to go through and at a minimum take a mental inventory on the year. Take a few minutes to think about the lessons learned, pat yourself on your back for some accomplishments, note some “never gonna do that agains”, and be grateful for the blessings. Then we look to 2013. I love goal setting, dreaming about what ifs, putting intentions out there to the universe. One thing I am working on right now is a list of 100 things I want to do in 2013. These are all things that are not part of my daily routine. Some are simple, some are daring. Some are sacred and many involve family adventures. 100 doesn’t seem like a lot but try it.. it’s not easy. I’ve only got about 40 or so listed so far.

One other vision I have is to connect with 200 new souls through my art classes this year. Who do I hope walks through the doors of my studio for a creative experience? Women in their 50’s and 60’s. These women have raised their kids, taken care of everyone around them for decades. They finally have a minute to take a deep breath and do something for themselves but sometimes don’t even know where to start. I hope to see women my age, so busy with their family, being a sports and activity taxi, organizing life around them. Yet they know if they don’t somehow find time to keep their own candle lit, they’ll burn out and not be as effective in helping others. I also can’t wait to see the teens and preteens. There is a such a light in these creative young beings. They have so much energy and ideas and just need creative, healthy outlets for it. And everyone in between. I often here, “But I can’t even draw a stick figure” or “but I’m left brained, I could never do an art class”. Au contraire lovely, yes you can. I have created each of these creative experiences to be a wonderful time for people with tons of creative talent and those that have never taken the time to see if they have any creativity in them. So don’t stress, you’ll have a great time. Plus I promise I will never let you leave with crap. Seriously, I will sit there all night if thats what it takes to make sure you leave with something you are proud of. Every person who has left my classes has left with a piece they are proud of. Plus, a little secret, you’ll feel flippin amazing. You’ll leave feeling like a rockstar. And everytime you look at it (even years from now) you’ll have a wave of that same proud feeling wash over you.

Take a look at the class list here. There are wine or coffee art classes, glasses, 3D floral meditative artwork and if you’r eyes glazed over when I was talking about the goals above then it’d probably really blow your mind to attend the vision board party this Saturday. Trust me it’s gonna be amazing. I know some of the people attending and they are the most fabulous people. The party is only $10 and seriously, I would pay it just to hang with a couple of the people that are gonna be there. Also one other fabulous detail, My special offer for 2013 is: For each person you refer that takes a class with you. You will recieve a $5 credit to use towards something in the studio when you take your class! Cards, Prints, Glasses, etc.

Lastly, you are not gonna want to miss the big reveal tomorrow. I have been working on my She painting for a couple months now and I can’t wait to share it. Picture this; I am sitting in the audience in Los Angeles a couple months back, we are chatting amongst ourselves as a woman takes the stage, she adjusts her instrument, mics, etc. I make a mental note that she looks great in red. Then she opens her mouth and sings, “let there be peace on Earth” acapella. With tears streaming down my face I had a vision of the painting I need to do to capture this unforgettable moment. You can see another clip of her singing this song here on you tube. She’s all class and a true example of a woman who is positively owning her power and going for it.

I wish you each a safe New Years eve and until tomorrow, **Noelle

What are people saying who have taken classes with us before?

I  loved your classes, both were such fun experiences.  It was such a fun activity to do for our MOMS night out too, everyone was able to put their own inspiration into their work and spend time in the company of great women!  I love your focus and themes that you have brought to your studio and your classes.  All ages and walks of life can find comfort and easy as they step into your studio and create.  You also have a way of making the not so creative souls find their own creativity too!!!  Thanks so much for the wonderful experiences, I know I will be back or more!      Darcy
Noelle’s new studio is fabulous and fun!  I went to a class last week and went home with my own painting – and I can’t paint!  But, indeed, Noelle had a special way of teaching through meditation, reflection, and new insights that she shared.  As a result, my messy start to art with dark, disjointed, and wildly placed paints turned into a beautiful fall day with brightly colored flowers and trees with leaves falling all around the bench I envisioned as Noelle talked us through the painting process.   I’ll be back for more classes soon!        Charity
I had such a great time taking your class a few weeks ago!  I haven’t painted in over ten years, so was pretty sure my painting would look like my 5 year old’s work.  But it turned out beautiful, and I was so inspired by the night!  The fun, the laughs, just letting my creativity take over… it was wonderful!  You were a fantastic teacher and it was so much fun to spend the evening in your studio.  Thank you!!        Bonnie
I attended two of Noelle’s painting classes and thoroughly enjoyed the experience!   Her spiritual take on life is a breath of fresh air.  She was positive and encouraging.   I’ve recommended her Soulful Discoveries class to friends. -Kathleen
Noelle’s “Crossroads” painting class was amazing!! I have never thought of myself as an artist but this class changed the way I look at myself!! This class provided 2+ hours of fun and friendship and opened up a whole new world of creativity for me!  – Brenda

First Week of Art Classes!!!

So I’ve completed my first group of art classes this past weekend. I finished that 3rd class and afterwards as I was cleaning up I was overtaken with appreciation and gratitude.  I feel so incredibly blessed that my hard work all these years and putting myself out there and trusting my intuition that kept shouting at me to offer classes, open a studio, etc.. was right.  I felt 1000% sure that I am doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing in my life right now.

During these classes I got to share a few hours with amazingly beautiful women. Got to hear about their lives, their humor and share some deep life conversations. All while doing art.  Life is good.

Here are some pics:

Have a great weekend!!  **N

lovely little touches

Whether it’s a wedding or a class or a dinner at your home; I think it’s the little touches that show your guests the love.  I’ve been busy in my studio setting up all the big things and now I’m working on all the little ways I can show love to anyone who enters the classroom.  I want people to come and feel the love, comfort and inspiration.  To connect with themselves and each other and feel my gratitude for them being there.  My latest little project was painting messages on each of the classroom aprons:

uplifting aprons

 

 

And here are the fabulous gift bags that arrived the other day I can’t wait to wrap the art and gifts people purchase in these beauties:

 

Happy Monday to you!   *N
