alijart No matter how many business plans and life plans you make - if you have kids you will realise quickly nothing ever goes to plan. Currently in hospital with my youngest who fell off a lounge at daycare yesterday and broke her arm. Testing moments but I have proved to myself that I am a brilliant mother. P.S. hospital food sucks. I get one meal complimentary (as i have to stay with her) and then have to organise my own meals. Need to stay with her, but can't take her out of the ward to go to the cafe and all my family and friends are at work/school until tonight. Hunger does not help me cope well when exhausted. No lunch, no dinner (as in surgery), cereal for breakfast. Looks like no lunch. Upgrading health insurance tomorrow so in future we get those simple things we all take for granted. #hospital #brokenarm #kids #frustration #hungry 7d
  •   loreleijayne When my youngest was in for a few days for surgery the nurses would come in and sit with him while i went and grabbed food or a drink! 7d
  •   loreleijayne Or can someone bring u something? I would but i'm car less 7d
  •   dropstitch Can I bring you something? Call or text me 0401800829 7d
  •   dropstitch Im about to grab myself some lunch at a cafe with a friend and can swing past PMH with something for you afterwards if you like? x 7d
  •   alijart All covered @dropstitch we are at Joondalup and the nurses let me take her down with me to the cafe. Made it fun and bought her a cuddly owl 7d

alijart My kids have the creative bug. This week I pulled out the play dough and let them run wild. They could make whatever they wanted and play with it for as long as they were inspired. My eldest daughter decided to create a family of creatures, people and aliens. A couple more years and I hope to introduce her to working with clay. #kids #children #playdough #kidsentertainment #playing #inspired 3w
  •   sewanista When my kids get out the play dough its to do stop motion animations. So cute! 3w
  •   alijart That sounds fun @sewanista . My hubby used to do animations, maybe we will finally get some new computers and he can start some projects with the kids! 3w
  •   flashmylashes Very cool! 2w

alijart Find a spare 15 minutes and watch this beautiful video on Vimeo about @karilise . I love how it touches on the reality of being an artist and the journey this path takes us on. Very inspiring (and her works are stunning). #karilise #artist #vimeo #inspired #inspiration #workinprogress #oilpaint #painting #artistjourney 4w
  •   karilise Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed the film! 4w

alijart Sneak peek at another work I finished a few months ago. Created for a client and was supposed to be part of a series but sadly the project is no longer going ahead. Without going into detail - illustrators like me work very hard and don't work for free!! Just keeping positive and remembering that when one door closes another opens. #fashionillustration #fashion #print #pattern #repeat #fern #fuschia #illustration #art #perthart #perthartist #flower #illustratedflower #inspired #inspiration #portrait #illustratedportrait 4w

alijart Mmm.... Kids and mulberries. This picture proves why kids and food means you never have a tidy house (or clean kids!!). #mulberries #daughters #children #fun 4w

alijart I have been feeling a bit stressed this week (first week my daughter in full time school) and itching to work but couldn't quite start. So glued myself to my desk and just experimented. I wanted to do a vibrant high fashion style illustration. Trying to do a series with interlinking ideas. Final work is nothing like I imagined but I am pleased. #fashionillustration #illustration #purple #leaves #fabercastell #ink #acrylic #digital #digitalillustration #perthillustrator #perthartist #boldcolours #boldpattern #mirrorimage #highfashion #couture #coutureillustration 4w

alijart Very little sleeping in this house tonight. Non stop thunder and lightning. Remember when you were a kid and taught to count the seconds in between to see how close the lightning was? Well.... Couldn't count a second. #lightning #perth #perthstorm #summerstorm #perthlightning 4w
  •   alijart And this photo was taken at roughly 9.30pm at night. Night kept turning into day 4w
  •   sewanista Gosh, that would have been scary/exciting! Storms tend to go around our house, we seem to be in a hollow or something. 4w

alijart One of my images has been picked to be on the front page of "The Creative Finder". I started my account there in 2009 but forgot to finish the process. So as part of making my year fresh and new I updated the portfolio today. So proud! #thecreativefinder @thecreativefinder #frontpage #feature #portfolio #illustration #creativecollaborations 4w

alijart My eldest daughter started full time school this morning. Preprimary. She wanted a photo for her first day. The most important photo... The first one.... She insisted on having it of her Frozen backpack. LOL. I don't mind the craze for the movie, it inspires her and makes her happy. No years from me today but I am feeling a bit sensitive so I will go and spend the day painting. I am going to try to do something bright today full of joy. :) #firstdayofschool #frozen #frozenobsessed #children #notears 4w
  •   jusstories Hey :-) 4w
  •   sewanista Bittersweet, isn't it? My youngest started high school at a new school today. I didn't cry, except from pain as I tried to haul her schoolbag to the assembly. 4w
  •   alijart They have so much school stuff @sewanista . I cheated, I took the bike trailer and filled it with all her stuff. I would have had no hope carrying it all on our 1km walk! I hope she has a lovely day today, I loved high school 4w
  •   sewanista She has a friend from her acting class already there, so she's been introduced on FaceTime to another girl, whose mum happened to be the first person I spoke to at the parents morning tea! Funny coincidence, and we're already talking play dates :-). I'm so relieved. 4w

alijart The joy of fish and chips. So easy to make my kids happy! We went away for the weekend camping in Dwellingup. Remind me next time that glamping is more my thing. We had exploding nappies in the car, night kid vomiting, kids not wanting to sleep at all, mattresses deflating, non stop mud and dust, tent poles snapping, sunburn, didn't take matches to light the camp kitchen..... List goes on and on. But the great thing about the holiday is we all got to bond as a family, we all laughed and smiled and have many memories for the future. #camping #shouldhavebeenglamping #campinghell #dwellingup #pemberton #fishandchips #lanepoolereserve 1mon

alijart My personal project. Playing around with creating pattern designs in various colours, primarily nature based. I have become a whiz making patterns in photoshop of all types. Having so much fun! Just ordered some sample fabric from Spoonflower and can't wait to see the prints in person. #spoonflower #fabric #patterndesign #nature #floral #bright #colour #print #pattern #repeat #mirror #flower 1mon
