And the winner is….

The winner of the first-ever Studio Mothers giveaway is Robin Norgren! Our highly unscientific drawing went like this: I walked into the family room and told my husband to pick a number from 1 to 14. He thought for a moment, stated a number, then stopped and revised his choice to number 8. (I was kind of surprised that he went along with my command without first asking me WHY I wanted him to select a number, but anyway.) Congratulations, Robin! I’ll pass along the relevant info for your free registration. Class begins in two weeks!

Thanks to everyone who entered. If anyone (aside from myself) is going to register the old-fashioned way, please post a comment here to let us know 🙂

The First-Ever Studio Mothers Giveaway!

And now for something completely different. The very first Studio Mothers giveaway!

Studio Mothers is — and will remain — an ad-free blog. But when Mindy at WishStudio (a beautiful resource mentioned at Studio Mothers in these posts) sent me an e-mail about a new online course she was offering, I started doing cartwheels. I signed up for the class immediately, and am thrilled to offer a free giveaway slot to the Studio Mothers community.

As creative mothers, we benefit from blending the lines between creativity and motherhood. Especially when our children are young and finding time for solo creativity is a scientifically proven impossibility often a challenge, keeping the creative flames alive by being creative with our children is often a surprisingly satisfying interim strategy. Even for me — a writer — I find that making something artful with my children keeps me from feeling like I’ve abandoned my creative self, even if I haven’t actually written anything for weeks or months.

Enter Wish Play Create, a 5-week online art playgroup with fabulous guest teachers: Tracey Clark, Stephanie Lee, Pixie Campbell, Mindy Tsonas, and Shona Cole (who’s book The Artistic Mother will be quite familiar to regular visitors of the Studio Mothers Facebook page). The course begins on August 30, and I’ll be blogging about the process at Studio Mothers. It would be great fun to have friends from the Studio Mothers community join me! The course description:
