Ode To Alice!

My Glitterfest theme seems to be taking on a bit of an Alice in Wonderland theme...
No surprise really.

This is my new business card...


The little girl is me.

About 10 years ago I had a little store called Daydreams.
This was my logo then too.
Being the perpetual Dreamer, many hours as a child were spent
lying on my back with my Grandmothers dog, Sammy in the grass,
staring at the sky, imagining there were animal shapes in the clouds,
blowing bubbles, making wishes with dandelions,
talking to the flowers, creating mud pie masterpieces decorated with flowers
and creating quite the make believe world.
Everything was ALIVE to me as a child.
The garbage disposal had to be "fed" or it would die.

As I pondered my new business and art direction, it was clear that I return to my roots...
the essence of who I am, not just as an artist, but as a person too.

I truly believe within every thing living or not, there lies potential.
Trash to treasure, bad to good....despair to hope.

Call me Pollyanna, Alice, Mary Poppins or whoever.

Life is truly about what you make it to be and how
you respond to the negative that life throws at you.

As I tell my kids,
"Life is full or curve balls, you better be able catch it and hurl it back, or duck and let just let it pass."

Back to the studio.
See you all at Glitterfest or in Virtual Internet-land!

XO,
Lisa
