{shop} {blog} {twitter}

Lori is an online friend that I’ve gotten to know dearly over emails, tweets, and blogging.  She is so super endearing, caring, and supportive and I’m so grateful for that!  And she has a lovely blog that is full of shop updates, Miscellany Mondays, house designs, and fashion (yes, she is a cutie patootie)!  Lori’s shop features prints of photographs she has taken during travels, cards, coasters and journals!  She was so kind to send me these two cards which are high quality, a great size and beautiful!  Don’t they just make you smile and think of Spring?

 

 

{MEET LORI}

 

1) What is your favorite thing about blogging?
My favorite thing about blogging is getting to meet new people. When I started a year and half ago, I never would have guessed I’d meet so many awesome people through blogging and twitter! I’ve gotten to meet some people in real life which has made life even better and I hope to meet even more at Creative Estates in April!

2) What camera equipment do you use to take the photos for your shop?
I have a Nikon D40 camera and use a 35mm lens. Love it!

3) Are you living out your dream job right now?  If not, what is your dream job?
No I’m not living out my dream job. I’d love to travel and photograph around the world, and then sell the prints. there are so many places I would love to go. That would be my dream job.

4) What’s your favorite cupcake flavor?
I LOVE cupcakes! Hehe. My favorite flavor is chocolate peanut butter! So good! :-)

    So many things from which to choose! Tonight, my favorite is the print of yellow taxis in NYC…tomorrow it may be something different but equally charming. Thanks for the giveaway.
