I have been tweaking this blog for a couple of weeks,
and I must say I am having a blast!
For the first time in 6 years, I ventured into
Hello Lovely’s dusty archives only to discover some
of the most immature posts in designblogdom, proving:
A. Hormones once held me hostage, and this blog
reflected and perhaps even celebrated the resultant
B. My health–physically, emotionally, spiritually–
improved significantly in recent years…oh. my. lord.
What am I raving about?
holy cramp…my ‘snapping photos upside down phase” of 2011
For a couple of years, under the influence of
an extreme peri-menopause and a
cuckoo-for-cocoapuffs juvenile phase,
you may recall I frequently attached a disclaimer:
Fluctuating hormones may or may not
affecting the author in odd ways.
Please follow this blog responsibly…
with deep tenderness,
a modicum of caution,
and a voluminous glass of red.
in 2011, things were scattered in the membranes & the basement.
Still following after all these years?
I salute you and apologize if you were terrified.
For example, when…
I styled Amy Grant with vintage jewelry
for her holiday concert yet showed up dressed
like fa-reak high on estrogen and ready for a circus.
I was often in pain, lived with teenagers (need I say more?)
cloistered myself at home playing the piano,
attempted to meditate rather than medicate,
and clung to rosaries and my Bella Luna.
to my credit i managed to snap some decent shots
To lightheartedly return to that combustive chapter when
my body’s chemistry was indeed a Hormonal Chernobyl,
YES, indeed in the same post I blog about Katy Perry’s album cover, I manage to offer the brilliant Kara Mann
complimentary interior design advice (oy, oy, oy.)!!!
I know you recognize Katy,
but do you know the
talented artist behind this image?
W I L L C O T T O N
created the art for Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream cd.
Am I the only one compelled
to create candy tiaras???? omg.
Is this already the NEXT BIG BLOG THING
and I’m just unaware?????
On with the mini art show…
my own fruit rollup strapless is similar…but c’mon…tailoring! TAILORING, people!
These sweeeeeeet surrealist paintings
by Will Cotton are feminine chic and light as air.
so lifelike…do you love the irony of the artist’s name and frequent subject matter?
just where does one display a Will Cotton? wouldn’t it wake up a minimalist already brilliant space by Kara Mann?
yo bloggers: let’s add DIY cupcake liner bustiers to the tutorial list.
If you are an artist stumbling upon this post
and your specialty is surrealist oils on canvas of bloggers
in cupcake tiaras/fruit leather, today is your lucky day!
This blogger is available…
no, I’m not.
See more Will Cotton here.
Let’s have fun today and laugh at
how far we have all come, yes?
p.s. if you enjoyed this peek at madness,
I bet I can be swayed to unearth
more crazytown should you be persuasive

Peace to you right where you are.
