My 200th Post and Aisle to Aloha Studio Giveaway!

 Well folks, you are reading my 200th blog post since I started writing in March of 2009. I have so much fun writing this blog and can't explain how thankful I am for each one of you who reads and leaves comments every day. Some of you have been here since the beginning (hi Crystal!) and some are just hopping on the train (Chudney is my 111th follower-welcome!). So, to express my gratitude and say thank you to YOU, my awesome readers, I painted something especially for you.




Yup, it's a mini-wave. One of you will win this little guy and give him a home! It's a mini version of my giant wave painting that I originally created for our living room. The canvas is 9x12 with a 1 3/8" edge. I use acrylic paints and add a protective varnish so your painting is looking fab for a long time. It's painted on the sides so it's ready to hang (or prop on a shelf or dresser!) and is signed by me on the side. 

Ready to enter? I think you know the drill. 

1. To enter, you must be a follower of AisletoAloha using the Google Friend Connect feature (Click the "follow" button on the right side bar.) Leave a comment on this post telling me about your favorite piece of art in your home. Crayon drawing? Monet print? Grandmother's watercolor? 

**Additional entries**

2. If you blog about the giveaway with a link to Aisle to Aloha Studio Etsy shop, come back and leave a second comment/entry. 

3. If you tweet about the giveaway, leave a third comment/entry. 

4. If you become a fan of Aisle to Aloha Studio on Facebook, leave a fourth comment/entry. 

**Please make sure I have an email contact for you or your entry is invalid!**

So, you have the potential to enter four times. This giveaway is open to US readers only--so sorry, I love my international readers but just can't ship there quite yet!

The giveaway will be open for a week. It will close on Thursday, October 7th (wow, it's October already??), 10pm Hawaii time. I'll choose the winner using random.org and announce it on Friday, October 8th.

  9. Yay! Awesome give away! My favorite piece of art is our great uncle's 1960's Gordon & Smith longboard. It's in crazy good condition and is always a funny story of how we inherited it! Best part of all... it has turquoise on it! :)

  11. I'm a follower! After scoping out the new place, I know I want something for our office- I just don't know what! My favorite thing we have now is a two piece set. One is a banana palm and the other is a coconut palm tree, I want to say. We had them in our dining room back home, and they would look FABULOUS with the wall color of the living room where we're getting ready to move! It's the first artwork we bought as a couple- along with another print of a sailboat. It's hard because we don't have any of it with us... it's hard to envision and plan! Awesome giveaway though!

  20. My favorite pieces of art are not on the wall right now. Since my room got reorganized when the floors were redone none of my art is up. Those pieces of are are words of wisdom with the Bible Verse that is attached to that word. I can't wait until they get back on the wall.

    I really enjoy reading your blog Lindsay- thanks for all your thoughts and inspiration!

  21. and i follow you! my favorite piece of art in our home is from target (lame compared to your work) but it's called perfect day and it was a wedding gift. and our wedding was the perfect day. so it always reminds me of how perfect our wedding was without being an actual wedding photo.

  29. I have a few favorite pieces of artwork on my walls...thank you so much to my beautiful artist...yes, thats you Lindsay my dear!! I do however have one piece that my husband and I bought recently that reminds us both of our home state of MA and our dedication to our great country! It's a painting of two adirondac chairs with an American flag draped over one of the arms, facing the ocean, (which I can only imagine is a chilly 60 degrees). Every single time I look at that picture it takes me back to many vacations growing up with my parents and gives me a sense of home no matter where I am living!

  34. Aloha,
    First of all I LOVE your paintings!!!
    My favorite piece of artwork in my house is by Kaiulani ( My 7 year old daughter) It is a masterpiece she painted on a large canvas. It is a painting of a rainbow fighting the storm and protecting the island( that is what I have been told) It is very colorful and full of personality! I do have a another favorite...it is a beautiful painting of Guadalupe in lovely blue and beige colors. This painting was passed down from my mother and her mother...and so on. I love art and the feelings and memories that it add's to my life. Keep on the beautiful work. Aloha ~ Shabd ( Shabd K Maui)
