Creative Artist Spotlight “Laura Marie”

Today I am debuting my new feature "Creative Artist Spotlight".  

When, I put out a call for artists on my facebook back in the fall, I had no idea I would get such a response. My list for this year is amazing.
I will be featuring local and national artists such as photographers, musicians, crafters and writers.
I am inspired daily by those I see around me or online, I thought it best to share what I see.

My first artist is Laura Marie.

I love Lu-Lu

Currently I am lying in bed, Missy Higgins in my headphones and random blogging from my typepad app on my iPhone (it lets me upload photos and everything:) I love technology, my new polka-dotted ruffle skirt and my little mini me.

 Tonight Jade fell asleep early so lulu and I ate Milano cookies and thought of things to photograph with my phone. Then we sat on the balcony wrapped in a blanket until we both fell asleep. Before she dozed off she said "i cant wait to think of new things to take pictures of." sigh warms my heart. I love these random nights:)
The photos below are from my hipstamatic app for my phone.
Happy Friday friends<3

If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it. The more things you do, the more you can do. Lucille Ball

things.never.slow.down.but.i.like.it.shhhh.don't.tell.anyone.

It seems like we are always up to something…always looking for things to keep our attention. 

These days, I am so busy but it's a good busy. As I continue to do the things I love, more doors are opening, more things are getting "done" for once.

It's spring break for Jade and Lulu. It has been such a hectic few days, but I think it's who we are. Being able to see more of them has been such a joy to me. We've had a ton of fun so far. Having said that, I am definitely glad to see bedtime come though each night:)

We will be doing videos each week… sort of "What we say" type things. This week is just some random banter…what we also do well:) They are definitely my children… my scattered, weird, funny children.

For your viewing pleasure:

These are the photos that inspired the video:)

Speaking of scattered… I am always trying to find new ways to keep my creativity going. Ways to challenge my thinking if you will. I am so busy most days with real life that I sometimes don't get to "be" creative. However…. last week I found this Hiptamatic App for my iPhone and it's changed my world. I adore it. It takes photos from your phone and turns them into vintage loveliness. I have literally used this app daily. I am able to catch those special moments… plus, it gives me another reason to do self portraits (not like I need one:).

These are a few of my favorites from this last week:

Lastly, I finalllllly saw Alice in Wonderland. I did a shoot inspired by the movie (I know its been done… and Tim Burton haters… leave now:)

I will give my opinion on the movie plus sharing photos by the end of the week. For now, here is a sneak peak of what I did…

That's my Lulu: my very own little Red Queen.

I hope you all are having the best week so far, I plan on being around here a lot more from now on:)

Til then, Loves.
