very cool idea, Lovey!

finally saw your studio in Studios! I wasn't surprised to see how much beautiful stuff you have to create art with! Very creative space - and I feel as if I know you more than before!

T's Daily Treasures said...

Hi Lovey, thanks for coming over to my side of the world. I wanted to head your way to see what you are up to and I am quite impressed by all of your artwork. Just beautiful! Congrats on being published in Studios -- I love that magazine, but don't always get it here in Kuwait. When I do see it, I scoop it up. Of course, if it just came out May 18th, won't find it around here until sometime in June, if at all. But I will definitely be on the lookout for it. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Best wishes, Tammy

Lovey said...

Hey Tristan!! I'm so glad you were able to get a hold of it!! Yeah...and I always feel the same about you my friend! Like our paths have crossed before! My one and only Tristan!

Lovey said...

Hi Tammy...so glad you could make it over to my side of the world too! Thank you for your kind words of encouragement! I hope STUDIOS will make it to your neck of the woods as well...it really did come out quite nicely! You have a great weekend too!!

Lee @ The Way I See It said...

Hi Lovey- I am so THRILLED that you came to see my little blog. I saw you over at Crescendoh and think your work is fab!! Your images of African-American women are beautiful, and so hard to find. I linked up, and am posting about it soon. I love this idea. Blog hopping is SO darned addictive.

PS- My house is about 30 minutes north of Portland, ME. I can either come get you, or I have to look into limo services. I am told it's a nice little airport to fly into. I am sure there are car rental places there too- if you ant to hook up with someone and split the cost. The drive itself is about 3 turns off I95. I hope you're coming!

Lovey said...

Hi Lee, I'm glad I found you too! You're right...blog hopping is truly the best thing going! I love it! I'm so thrilled you're linked up and I can't wait to revisit your blog! Thanks for the mention at Crescendoh...I was so excited to share my story there...and my work.
I'm looking into the trip, trying to work it in. Don't know if it will work out though...my two little ones may not let me go...heehee...smiles and welcome aboard!
Many hugs,
Lovey
