Or have you seen her work? I mean, technically we haven't met, in person anyway, but I have seen her work and LOVE it. And we text and email so I know we'd hit it off in real life. Ha.
I have been a fan of Lori's work since the first time I saw it and if you recall, she also sponsored our Be Crafty OK event last month. Her "choose joy" print is one of my faves and I'm quite certain I'll end up getting the flapjacks print once we move to our dream home, which is taking a ridiculously long time to happen than I ever imagined. That's a whole post on it's own - one I believe I keep promising to write but not today :)
Anyway, back to Lori. She is not only an amazingly talented designer but she takes it to a whole new level with paper cutting. I don't know how she has the patience to do what she does but I'm so glad she does because her work is so beautiful.
Take a look.
That is the canvas Lori gifted me for my birthday. It's her most recent paper cut design that she also turned into a print. The picture does not do it justice. At all.
Not only do I love the design of it, but the quote is so awesome. You can read how the whole design came to be in her blog post here. It's really neat to see other designer's processes so go ahead. I'll wait.
So neat huh. Yay for Lisa Leonard and her beautiful words and Lori for her beautiful design! Did you watch the time lapse video of her cutting that print out? If not, I stole it and embedded it here for you to watch.

Crazy amazing, right?!
I feel so blessed to have one of her canvases up in my home but even more so to call her a friend. Thank you so much, Lori for the beautiful present. I love it.
