inspired monday

Hello and a very happy Monday to you all. I am thinking this morning about the people who, for various reasons, inspire me. I hope you will visit these lovely folks and spread a little inspirational love.

First, I bring you Jennifer Juniper from Hope Studios. Jennifer is both a wonderful calligraphy artist AND the author of a colorful, lively blog which features, among other things, Tutorial Tuesday, the Sunday Funny, and Feedback Friday. I try to participate in the tutorial link up each week and her Sunday Funny never fails to put a smile on my face. Oh, if I only lived right next to Jennifer - the tales we would live to tell! Do hop over and give this fabulous girl a shout.

Have you ever visited Danielle from Her Painted Word? One look cries color, cheer, and inspiration. Danielle is an artist who paints whimsical works of art. Her words are so much better than mine. So without further ado, I give you Danielle:

Tucked away in Northern Canada, lives a woman who dreams of wearing a chartreuse cape with red polka dots where she spends many days and nights creating inside her petit Studio. With six months of snow covering the ground, she spends many days as a recluse allowing her imagination to run wild. When Spring finally arrives, she flies around in her cape, enjoying the deep greens and blue hues that cover the nearby forests and abundance of lakes. Welcome to her world. Get a cup of coffee and stay a while...xo

Now, if you are looking for a true laugh visit Estorbo at The Libe ob Don Estorbo de la Bodega Dominicana. I have, at times, been brought to tears over the life and times of this cat. In his own words, I bring you Estorbo:

Abou' Me:

I yam a beeg, blag, Dominican cad. I was born een a bodega arn the Lower Eas' Side ob Manhattan. The libe ob a cad. Dayeen, dayoud.

Intrigued? Take the time to visit. You cannot read this blog without saying the words outloud. I challenge you. Visit Estorbo. Really.


I hope that you've been sufficiently inspired to laugh and move into the upcoming week.
Enjoy these links, have a great day, and I'll see you tomorrow.


  1. You always inspire me, Miss Lori. I am delighted to check out these other artists! And a cad who blogs? That is brilliant!
    Enjoy the day!

  2. Truly wonderful art! Just what the doctor ordered when we haven't had sun in over a week - brilliant color.

  3. Thanks for sharing! I had to go and visit each of the blogs and they were all great! Have a great week!

  4. Lori, I've visited Danielle quite frequently in the past, but recently she dropped off of my blog-sightline for some reason! Thanks for bringing her back into my sight again! I love her blog so much!

    Oh, and I'm hyperventilating over that cad....he's too much! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. How did I miss this??? I was just on here raving about your chili and I was just below there...who knew?

    Thanks, and right back atcha!


I love reading each one of your comments. Thanks for your visit and have a wonderful day.
