Your choice of:
– Inward Journey – this pose is called the Eagle Pose. One of the chakras it helps open is the third eye chakra. The third eye chakra is associated with intuition, self awareness and selflessness. The coordinating color for the third eye chakra is Indigo (dark blue purple). You will find indigo colored accents within the border flowers of this artwork. A crystal helps highlight the 3rd eye area.

Great gift for those in your life that love not only yoga but all things natural, calming and centering.

– Speak Your Truth – A great reminder to listen to our inner knowing and speak up when we need to. This message is taken from the Plow Pose print. The plow pose helps activate the throat chakra and is associated with personal expression, creativity, addiction, criticism, faith, decision making choices and lack of speaking up. The coordinating color for the throat chakra is blue. You will find blue colored accents within the border flowers of this artwork

– Be Gentle – This artwork is great for those that are suffering from: stomach ulcers, intestinal tumors, diabetes, pancreatitis, indigestion, anorexia/bulimia, hepatitis, cirrhosis, arthritis or the emotions that go along with – low self esteem, fear of rejection, oversensitivity to criticism, self-image fears, fears of our secrets being found out, indecisiveness

The Solar Plexus Chakra: One feels then thinks the one must do. This chakra is all your energy, power and action. It is located below the breast bone behind the stomach.

My interpretation of this all is that when I feel that feeling in my gut telling me that something is or isn’t right that is my intuition. In order to maximize our intuition and connection to our senses we must make sure our Solar Plexus Chakra is clear and fully active. I’ve written a little about boundaries here (https://noellerollinsart.wordpress.com/2012/06/14/i-give-you-permission-to-say-no/ ) and I think this also comes from having increased self-esteem. When you feel good about yourself and your place in life you don’t worry quite as much about people pleasing. I feel as if I’ve made so many strides in this area yet it has me wondering since I had to have my gallbladder out last December if that is somehow tied into my having more work to do in this area.

– Dinner for Two – bold colors, the visual sounds of the violin, candles all wrapped up in a 5″ x 7″ frame. Great for a kitchen or dining room.

Thrifty Thursday – How to make big bucks at your next yard sale

RichandCreativeThrifty_Header copy

 

Garage sales and yard sales are in full swing this time of year.  

A few weeks ago we made over $1400 at our yard sale.  It was amazing!  Even better was that it was all donated towards my trip to Israel and Palestine in the fall.

 

Unfortunately just a week later I watched my neighbor attempt to do a garage sale.   I say attempt on purpose because they are losing out on hundreds of dollars in sales by missing out on some basic things.

I’ve watched them:

  • put in weeks worth of setup work
  • days of multiple people working their sale
  • not displaying things well
  • not advertising
  • poor signage
  • no prices on things
  • putting the wrong things in view
  • sleeping in and not starting until after 9am

They have had very little success.   How is it that there was less than 20 people that showed up to there sale just 1 week after over 200+ people showed up to mine right next door?

 

Are you like my neighbor?   Have you spent way too many hours on a garage sale only to make poor sales?  Are you needing to clear out some clutter to make room in your home for things that you really love?   I’ve been there.  I’ve had those sales where I’ve gone home with a hundred bucks and scratched my head wondering what I did wrong.

 

I can help.

Move Me Forward Sale

Move Me Forward Sale

Help me as I continue to refine my vision and journey for my business.  Sometimes we have to go through a journey only to come full circle and get back to what seems like the starting point again with a refined sense of self, knowledge, and confidence.  That’s how I think of my journey the past year.  I’ve been able to put into practice many ideas I’ve had in my mind for years and see what fits and what doesn’t resonate with me and my purpose.  As my online business, and other artwork opportunities continue to grow I’ve decided to give them my full attention. I’ve outgrown the need to have my studio so I will be having a huge sale to let go of the furniture and artwork pieces that do not align with where I’m headed.

How it works: I am selling my pallet table and shelves. Selling all remaining glassware & hammhers. I have a couple dozen artwork pcs that are not part of the series’ that I will be moving forward with; I will be offering a chance for you to make an offer on these pieces.

Check out my craiglist posting to see some of the furniture I have for sale: https://post.craigslist.org/manage/3886283471

I also have my awesome huge pallet table for sale.  This is for $350.  (This table will come apart into 2 halves for moving.) Listing here: http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ank/fuo/3884944772.html

Big online sale on Wed. July 10th!  You will be able to buy original paintings at a ridiculously amazing price on that day.  I will share more about this as the day grows closer.

I will be in my studio Friday June 28th and Monday July 1st from 10am-4pm  if you are in the local Minneapolis area and want to stop in and get first dibs on all the great sale items!  Seriously, you’re gonna wanna share the goodness and bring a friends with. Lots of great items for crazy prices.  I have 50-100 wine glasses/tea glasses and great candle holders. All hand painted and dishwasher safe. Some that no one has seen yet. I will be offering these for a great price. I’ll also be selling out the remaining hammhers for only $5 each. I have lots of hand painted wood signs these will be $5-10 each also. I have small mounted prints that will be $5 each also.  (Mpls and St. Paul skyline glasses will not be clearanced)

I want to be clear though, the Soulful Yoga series will remain at regular prices as will all matted prints and pallet prints. I will continue to sell these both online, for pickup and in stores and studios.

This is not any sort of going out of business sale, I am still planning on doing artwork. In fact I’ll be perfectly honest. I really try to live my life on purpose and very in tune with my intuition and step up when I feel called to do so. I’m feeling so many deep callings to do some big things with my artwork and with some online courses about going through times of change and coming out better then you were when you started. About living inspired and authentically. I want to focus fully on those areas, my Soulful Yoga artwork, my Music, Wine and Soul Artwork and wholesale lines.   The evening I had made the decision to embrace moving past the studio I prayed for a sign that I am heading in the right direction. The next morning I awoke to an email from a yoga studio out on the east coast wanting to order a wholesale package. They purchased a package that morning. That is a sign I will accept. Message Received.

If you are interested in anything you see on the craigslist ad act fast.  As I was typing up this page 3 shelves and 2 artwork pieces sold, I want to make sure those who want them get a chance.

So cheers to moving forward!  I thank you for all your support.  *Noelle

20 years and just getting started

Rewind 20 years ago, I was in 8th grade. My outfit of choice for school was plaid boxer shorts and a sweatshirt I bought myself. Braces, new contacts and bangs.  … good times.

That year also I was asked to do a logo for the new travelling volleyball league.  I got paid 50 bucks and I couldn’t have been happier.  I’ll never forget the experience of seeing kids in school wearing clothing with that logo on it. I had such a sense of pride.

More importantly though, it made it seem possible that I could turn my love of art into something that made money and could be a career.  Around that time I illustrated my first children’s book. It never got published (to my knowledge) but the experience was priceless.  I took every opportunity I could get to draw or paint.   Who knows which direction I would have gone without that experience.

To celebrate this big anniversary I’m having a HUGE print sale.  On both my Etsy sites:

Noelle Rollins Art on Etsy here or

Music wine and Soul art on Etsy here.

Purchase an 8″ x 10″ print (they are all matted into 11″ x 14″ mat) and get a matching print matted into a 5″x 7″ mat to give to a friend.  All on sale for $20!!!  (regular price for those together is $31) plus s&h.

SALE!!! Through Friday October 21st!
