This book is beautifully brief yet packed with sensible advice on how to do this art/mother/life thing! Like wise words from an older arty sister. I will be referring back to it like a “how to” manual for years to come. Thanks for sharing what you have learned thus far Jasmine. I am inspired.

I loved reading Jasmines book. I agreed with all of the suggestions to balance studio practice and parenting. Its a real juggle and great to read how another artist does it. The quotes in the book was inspiring and so is the author. I left a spare copy in the workshop of the Daylesford Ceramic coperative – Clayspace to inspire other mothers.
Thank you Desiree for taking the time to share your thoughts on the book and for sharing the book itself… I must come and visit Daylesford some time … Jasmine X
Thoroughly enjoyable to read and easy to put down & pick up again in those 5 min juggling sessions that Mums get. The pearls of wisdom were beautifully put in a thought provoking yet encouraging way to remind us all of little tricks to make life easier. I still have her words “do your housework with gusto” when I eventually do what I hate doing. A lovely and worthwhile read for busy & working parents anywhere.
Hi Jenny, Thank you so much for your positive review and yes the doing housework “with gusto” thing is a constant challenge, I heard this quote a while ago now and it has stuck with me, it goes something like this; “Chop firewood, bake bread, seek enlightenment, chop wood, bake bread, seek enlightenment”. As far as I see it the mundane domestic tasks and having balance in the home, are as important as achievements on a higher level!!! You cannot work until you have eaten etc….Have a wonderful day..

A lovely book and a pleasure to read. I found it so inspiring to get out there and start creating. I highly recommend it!
Thank you so much Ana for your review! I am happy to hear that you have been inspired.. Jasmine X
So genuine and thoughtful, I loved reading Jasmine’s book and appreciate the intention and commitment taken to produce it. Honest insights that feel like helpful hints from a friend. A great gift for anyone looking for some real life creative juice.
Hey Ingrid, Thank you for taking the time to recommend my book, I am happy to hear that you have enjoyed it… Cheers Jasmine X
This is a great little book, easy and quick to read and full of ideas about how to find time to focus on your practice regardless of other commitments!
This is my ‘Little Book of Calm’! Every chapter felt like a breath of fresh air. As I worked through it, the possibility of leading a successful life as an artist with kids underfoot felt so much more achievable. I know I will pick up this book time and time again whenever I’m in need of some words of wisdom and encouragement.
