inspiration monday


i have long believed that the best way to find inspiration is to spend some time with other artists....and this past saturday i had the honor of sharing some creative cursive with 13 extremely talented, sweet little birds in manhattan, new york!






we talked about our abc's......





and practiced, practiced, practiced.





 then we got out our favorite supplies and added our own personal touch......





and we even gathered lots of ideas and created some dreamy artwork!






but most of all, we spent the day as only artists can do.....by sharing some laughter, lots of encouragement, and a little bit of chocolate with each other.
thank you, precious little art birdies, for a fabulous day!
i loved meeting each one of you.....you truly rock the casbah,
and i wish i could tell you how much you taught me!




and to my beautiful kindred art buddy michele, who puts her loving heart and soul into providing inspiration for others through her little bird studio.....well, as the saying goes, you better put on your sunglasses 'cause your future is looking mighty bright, girlie!  you are so very appreciated, and i thank you SO much for inviting me to your fabulous studio!  xox

Beautiful post, Lori! It was such a treat to have you here - for me and for all of us little birds. You are a true delight and I look forward to seeing you back in the Big Apple in 2014. Congratulations on your article in Somerset Studio and i'm looking forward to giving your tutorial a try. xoxo to you, your adorable Dutch sweetie and your family.

This little birdie is so happy she had a chance to play with lettering. I loved all the tips, techniques, and especially witnessing Lori's creative process. I've been a lettering fool since the class. My shopping list for the supermarket never looked so lively!
