Weekend Artist…Alisa Jane Designs

October 17, 2008

I feel like I met Alisa ages ago! When I first started up the Cottage Style Street Team on Etsy, Alisa was one of the best supporters. She would always show up and help promote Cottage Style shops with me in the forums.
Alisa is one of those true, consistent friends…
…and she’s an ultra-talented artist!!

Since childhood, creating has been a love of mine. When I started my first year of college I thought my career would follow the Fine Arts path, but then I discovered a passion for children. So I veered off and became an Early Childhood Educator. After almost 14 years of traveling that kid friendly path, I veered again. This time I found a familiar road… art. However, instead of drawing and painting like I used to do, I began scrapbooking and card making.

From there I developed a love affair with paper. Pretty patterned scrapbook paper, beautiful hand painted vintage wallpaper, perfectly aged ledger… it doesn’t really matter, as long as it’s paper.

A year ago, I decided to take my paper love one step further and I started Alisa Jane Designs. It began with the designing of a few simple note cards and composition journals and now with the anxiously awaited opening of LolliShops, has evolved into a stationery shop. I really enjoy creating functional items that bring beauty to life’s everyday tasks. My personal mantra is “life is a beautiful place to be” and I find that my work is inspired by this beauty, whether it is a blooming rose in my garden or the innocent giggle of a child.

I am so excited about the opening of LolliShops. I really feel like it will be the perfect venue for businesses that provide not only aesthetically pleasing products, but also products of the highest quality and customer service where both personal touch and satisfaction is most important.
