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.
Here is my newest pallet art designs. These are so versatile, I hope you’ll love them: (you can click the image to see them on Etsy)
Sports Art Special:
There are a few more days left to get in on the action and order an original Volleyball or Football painting! These are great and people have loved that you can add a name or # if you choose also. Only $47 for an 8″x10″. Great for a middle school or high school athlete. I’ve also had some that have been adding to their collection each quarter that I offer a new sport and are building a sports themed family room. Love that. In November I’ll be offering a basketball and hockey special!

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
