  8. There was a time in my life when I sewed dolls and my kids were right there next to me playing the the thread (and sometimes sitting on the table) and whatever else they could get into as I worked. You adapt to continue what you love.

  12. Lovely. I look forward to your blog everyday! Can you tell us what size and what type of paper you are working with. I'm really wanting to do something BIG. Just too timid to try.

  17. And that's why I put gallon paint cans under the legs of my dining table (painting studio table)! Kept all my artwork out of sight from my curious daughter - out of sight, out of mind! Of course I couldn't work when she was around - 'cause then she'd be all over it, but when I could steal a moment, (nap time, evenings) I'd be painting! Great feather painting - & love the photo story!

    What I most like about your blog is that everyone can see that a simple life can be such a marvellous one. Everything about your life is pure love: your family, your art, the way you look at the world.
    Since I start visiting you, I started slowing down my frenetic life and paying atention to wht really matters. Thsnk you, Alisa. I hope someday I can give you back :)

  27. I just stumbled upon your blog, and I am shocked at how true this post rings in my life right now. I also have a baby girl (10 months), and I also come from a creative background. I left my career in design when I had my daughter, and feel like I have lost myself. Only currently have I re-ignited the creative flame burning in me. I am making steps to get back into the game, but determined to make it work from home. Balancing a baby and attempting a freelance career is no easy feat, but you just gave me an extra dose of inspiration! The little hands on the canvas look so familiar! :)

    Thank you!

  28. Wow, Alisa thank you for your encouraging words. I have been at this business for a long time. It gets so frustrating when there are people who seem to have instant success when I have been working at this for years. The income comes in spurts for me. After taking time to raise my three kids I am getting back into the field more now that my kids are older. It is so hard to juggle kid's activities with career.

  29. The photos of your little helper are darling!

  30. Alisa, You are such an inspiration that I attempted to draw a feather like yours...Mine was not as loose and free looking as yours. Your strokes are so fluent that it awes me! My feather was tight and dark! sigh! God bless your talent!
