i haven’t done one of these in a while, so i thought i would share the biggest artist crushes i have had in a while. in fact, i don’t think i have connected with any other artist as much i have with this amazing artist. when i grow up, i want to be just like her. creativity just oozes out of her. and i think we are very similar in our interests. we love fashion, home decor and cooking. whenever i am looking for some inspiration, i head on over to her blog. who am i talking about? alisa burke.
alisa is always sharing tutorials on how to alter clothes, like here, and here, and my favorite one here. she is always making a mess. she paints and stitches on fabric like here, and here, and here. and she makes yummy food like this, and this, and i am so making this. and she makes the coolest handbags ever! ok, ok… can you tell i have read her blog from start to finish a few times? i know i am just a little bit obsessed. like i said, when i grow up i want to be just like her, only me of course. she was the inspiration for this handbag that i made.
i just found out that alisa burke is coming to my backyard to teach a workshop this october and i seriously want to go. she is going to be teaching at art camp for women. it seems nearly impossible that i would be able to go, but i am not ruling it out just yet. it is a whole week long. i am not sure how my family would do without me for a whole week. i have never done anything for myself like this. but can you imagine? a whole week for just me being able to paint and play. wouldn’t it be awesome? i can dream. and i am going to start buttering up my husband now. we’ll see. who knows what can happen?
