Happy One Year, Aisle to Aloha Studio!


Today marks one year since I opened my Etsy shop, Aisle to Aloha Studio! It has been an amazing year and I am so thankful for how I've grown, what I've learned, the people I've met and now cherish as dear friends. There have been plenty of frustrations and struggles, but every day, I continue to be in awe that God has given me the opportunity to do what I love and to spread my love for color to the world! :)


I am so thankful for Chris' support throughout this year. I am such a lucky girl that I get this amazing man to be my husband and best friend. From his artistic advice, business brainstorming sessions, constant encouragement and hugs through the hard stuff, this is certainly not a one woman operation.

I'm also thankful for YOU. Each of you who read my blog, spread the word about Aisle to Aloha Studio, leave me kind comments, encouraging tweets and sweet emails, purchase my paintings, commission custom pieces, and keep me inspired! Mahalo nui loa, dear friends! Thank you so much for your support and love! 

And to say thank you--I though we'd do a little celebrating! For the next 24 hours...

 All 6x6 Cutie paintings are $5 off! No need for a coupon code-- they are already marked down! 

Also, for every thing else in the store, take 20% off with the code ONEYEAR20 at checkout! (Coupon code does not apply to 6x6 paintings.)

ALSO, since we're celebrating today, I thought it would be fun to give away one of my 6x12 Hooray paintings! 



To enter, simply leave me a comment below. Easy as that! I'll pick a winner and announce on Thursday!

*giveaway closed!* 

Thanks to all who entered-- you certainly made me feel loved! If you are Rhiannon from From the Heart, congratulations! Email me, girl!
