Let's hear some more about CraftGirlAlli:

1. First things first, tell us a little more about yourself ...

I'm Allison! I have an amazing little boy named Colby who is almost 14months old. I'm not "technically" married but we might as well be! Derrek is my other half! We've been together for over 2 years now. Currently we live in Indiana, but we are hoping to end up in Florida sometime in the next 6 months.

2. What is your regular job?

Well, I just graduated from our local community college with a degree in Web Management (same thing as web design). I currently work at a factory in the office as an administrative assistant. I love my job and the people I work with. I've been here for 2 years and I'm really going to hate to leave! I work 40 hours a week, plus being a mom and doing my crafts.

3. When you became a mom, what is the most important thing you had to learn?

Wow, I learned quite a bit! I was already a pretty patient person (my mom runs a home daycare, so I've been around kids my whole life!). But I think the most important thing I learned...was that life wasn't about "ME" anymore. It's about "family". And in the end, family is what matters the most. They are there no matter what is happening in your life and they will ALWAYS be there. So cherish that! I also realized what "love at first site" felt like the moment my son was born! I'd heard many moms describe it...but there aren't enough words to describe that moment when you first meet your child.

4. Do you Haiku?

Airplanes on the wall

Flying through the big blue sky

Watch them fly away

Airplane Wall Pegs

5. What is it about painting that you love so much?

I find it very relaxing. Then I like feeling accomplished after I get it all done. I like being able to show people and tell them..."I made this myself!"

6. Picture of your workspace...

Don't mind the Halloween table cloth LOL. Its the only "used" one I had that didn't matter if I got paint on it!


7. What inspires you?

Pretty much anything. I like looking through kids magazines or craft magazines. I try and make my things to match bedroom themes or just things kids like in general. I usually buy the little accessories for the frames first...and then think of an idea after that.

8. If you were asked to donate one of your pieces to a family from Hurricane Katrina that was in need of decorations for their new home, what would you give them and why?

I think I would donate my "Love is all we need" picture frame. After everything those people have been through, its the love and the help from others that has gotten them through their hard times.


Love Is All We Need Picture Frame
