inspiration monday


i have decided to add a weekly feature to my blog called "inspiration monday".  each monday i will showcase artwork of an artist whose work inspires me for one reason or another.  when i first came up with this idea, my mind immediately went to jenn of noodle and lou studio.  her artwork is fresh, fun, colorful, vibrant, simple, and has a sense of sweetness to it that i just love.  i would love to be a little mouse in her studio...how fun it would be to watch her creative process of layering papers and paint!  and, if you read my blog post of a few days ago, then you know how much i love this particular subject matter...houses!  i could be happy living in any of these, but i must admit that i'm partial to the "laugh" house...that green and red distressed door is fabulous!  jenn also creates wonderful little polymer clay houses called "lulettes" that are absolutely adorable. (click here to see the one she made for martha).  i'd also like to say that i'm especially inspired by jenn herself.  i've had the pleasure of corresponding with her, and she has a very sweet spirit that naturally comes out in her artwork.  you can see more of her work at her etsy shop by clicking here.  and her blog is a lot of fun, too!  thanks, jenn, for allowing me to showcase your artwork...you truly inspire me!

Hi Lori! Jenn is an inspiration to me too! I'm a proud owner of a lulette and hope to have more of her art in my home someday.
Great choice for your first feature. :)

Hello there. I just hopped over from the Noodle and Lou blog. It's nice to meet you.
I agree, Jenn's work is WONDERFUL...so playful and lighthearted. And yes, she is a super sweet gal with a great outlook. I'm inspired every time I visit her blog.
