Favorite New-Love AND Favorite Artist {Contest Post 7 + 8}

Heeeeey everyone. 

Pretend like I didn't forget to blog yesterday.  Sweet. Thanks.

LET'S JUMP RIGHT IN!
TWO CONTEST POSTS IN ONE!
Woot :D

Leave two separate comments, though, for it to count!




Contest Number 7 has to do with Starbucks.
Why?
Because until this year, I did not like it.
I didn't get it.
Now, well, ha, I get it, folks, I get it.
Photobucket
{stolen from google images}I love Starbucks and didn't used to.

Tell me, what did you used to hate/dislike but now REALLY quite enjoy?
Hmmm?
Huh?
Spill the beans.
The coffee beans.
And if you win, a Starbucks gift-card will be part of your winnings.


Contest 8 iiiiiiis about art.
One of my favorite artists is Seth Remsnyder.
He made me these custom I'm Kristen plaids on canvas.
In my colors.
I'm Happy Kristen.
The gift basket now includes one of these! One of my custom paintings!
It's like eBay-ing a Princess Diana gown!  Aren't you honored?!
Haha just kidding.
Photobucket



But Seth really is wonderful and I love his work, and you really will win one of these paintings.
So let me know who YOUR favorite artist is.
A friend, an Etsy-aquaintance, Monet'... Let me know!

  4. I enjoy the paintings of the oh so famous Edgar Degas.

    ReplyDelete
  5. i didn't use to like peanut butter, especially peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. isn't that sad?! when forced, i would eat a piece of bread with peanut butter on it and then a SEPARATE piece of bread with jelly on it. i could choke that down. but together? nooooo way. now? i really love peanut butter, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter in reeses pieces, and peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. and i have no idea when or how it changed. it just did. ::shrug::

  6. And my favorite artist is probably my grandpa. He's a cartoonist but his regular art is incredible. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I just adore the paintings of Edgar Degas!

    ReplyDelete
  8. My favorite thing I used to hate is Asparagus. Loathed it up until last year. Now it's one of my favorite vegetables!

    ReplyDelete
  9. My favorite artist. Has to be my friend Julie. She's one of the most talented people ever and she has an etsy...so she's legit.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I used to hate the violin...but now I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I used to HATE sushi and be grossed out by it... but now (aka as of last weekend) I LOVE it! I can't wait to try all kinds of sushi. :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. I seriously used to hate coffee, but now I have no idea what I would do without it. This transformation just happened in the last year and a half...so...very...grateful!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love my best friend's artwork. Maybe its our history together as friends, or maybe its her unique perspective on art or on a scenery she's painting... but I think her work is breathtaking.

    ReplyDelete
  14. my favorite artist is my friend Luz. she is amazingly creative and i love just about anything she makes. :)

    ironic twist? we didn't used to like each other, and now we do! we had a rocky start to our friendship, but now she is a dear friend. :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. And my favorite artist is Liz Lemon Swindle

    ReplyDelete
  16. My favorite artist is Eric Carle (I'm not sure I spelled that correctly)...mainly because with 2 small children, my art intake has consisted of Brown Bear, Brown Bear and the Hungry Catepillar for pretty much the last 4 years!!:)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I used to hate, hate, HATE cilantro. I thought it tasted to sharp and dirty.. and now i can hardly make anything without it! Eggs, sandwiches, virtually ANY dinner... absolutely fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I used to hate the guitar because of the sound your fingers make when they slide down the strings. I still don't really like that part, but my love for the melodies that come out of the instrument far outweigh the screeching of the strings. (Does that count?) :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Favorite artist.. hmm... i'm assuming photographers don't count (*halo*). That would actually have to be my mom. She taught me how to see shapes within what i was looking at and be able to recreate it on a pad of paper. She's got a brilliant eye and can make things come to life. It's incredible!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm an art major, so I have a lot of favorite artists - but at least right now my MOST favorite is Chris Gilmour. He works with cardboard and makes life-size sculptures of cars, bikes, and even iconic statues. His work is the perfect balance of ambitious, original, and exquisite execution.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Favorite artist: Jasmine Star. I know... it's a photographer. But in my book photography is still WAY art!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Favorite new thing: BEING HOME!
    I never liked being home when I used to live at home. But now I'm at college and there is nowhere else that I'd rather be!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. (Ok, my used-to-hate-but-now-love entry isn't that original because I'm guessing all adults share my opinion on this, but I'm going for it :) ) I used to HATE to go to sleep at night! Dad and Mom would tuck me in bed, but after they left, I'd make my way back down stairs and hide under the piano until they saw me and let me spend a few more minutes with them before they sent me to bed again. Now I LOVE going to bed! I enjoy just thinking and thinking until I fall into a restful sleep :). Haha, sorry, that turned out to be longer than I thought it'd be :D.

    ReplyDelete
  24. A favorite artist of mine at the moment is Daniel Gerhartz. He is a MARVELOUS painter and a dream of mine would be for him to paint a portrait of me and my husband (if God blesses me with a Godly one someday :) ). You should SERIOUSLY go check out his work! It's so beautiful and enchanting. http://www.danielgerhartz.com/2/Artist.asp?ArtistID=32051&Akey=23SWCG6T

  25. well I used to hate boys and now I dont :). and I used to really really hate swimming and now I really love it. but I would have to say that it has to be chocolate. I really used to hate it when I was younger and well if you know me at all now you know that I love it

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hamburgers. I don't know why, but growing up I didn't like them. Then, one day while driving back to college from being home for a weekend, I stopped at an In-n-Out (yep, CA gal here) and now I like them. I don't crave them or anything, but I'll at least eat them now.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  100. I love so many favorite artists. But my very personal favorite is my very dear friend. She has recently started designing and making clutches/bags/purses: Natty {design&fashion}. Let me tell you, these are NOT your typical homemade bags. They are amazing and she has already sold a ton in the last couple months! Lucky me I got one of her first bags ever made for Christmas and it's amazing. I have no idea how she comes up with these amazing bags.
    Do check her stuff out on her facebook page!! I think you might love it :D

    ReplyDelete
  124. I used to hate any time that it was quiet or I was alone, and even though probably 8/10 times I'll still pick the crazy fun, people filled activity, I've come to really appreciate and enjoy times of quiet solitude. I really love going for long walks on a cool summer evening to just let my mind wander and clear my head! I also feel closer to God after I spend some time just listening when I go for those walks.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I used to hate coffee itself but over the last few years I've come around. I'm still not a fan of it black, but add a little cream and sugar and I'm there.

    ReplyDelete
  126. I've never really considered having a favorite artist. Hmmmm.....
    I suppose if I have to pick right now I would say Van Gogh.

    ReplyDelete
  127. As far as my favorite artist... I don't really have one because I don't spend a lot of time looking at it even though I really do enjoy it. I have to admit, ever since your post a while back highlighting Seth Remsnyder's work I've become a fan. I actually bookmarked his website and hope to save some money to purchase one someday! I love how they relatively simple (not too busy), yet amazingly beautiful!

  164. This is a great question. I have a like/dislike relationship with being proven wrong about something :)

    I would say that I used to cringe at the thought of being a leader of the Youth Group at my church. After MUCH prompting from Jesus, I am now a youth leader and absolutely LOVE those kids! Whodathunk?!
