This is such a fun post for me to write. It is all about Dori of Dreaming Bear Designs. She is a fun and colorful mom and wife, shop owner and artist. The following pictures that I stole from her blog just make me happy. And when you see how she is painting chalkboard paint onto her kitchen cabinets you will have the same thought that I did, "were Dori and Sara separated at birth?"
I even asked my husband if we could vacation in Iowa- we have 3 reasons; Dave's good buddy Allen and his family live there, Dori and her fabulous shop, and also the Things with Wings girls live in Iowa! Now that would be a fun and colorful trip!
Enjoy the happy photos and a following interview with Dori as she explains how she got into business. Check out her super-hero-artist outfit. I am going to steal those tights!!!!!!!! How fun.
She has parties at her shop/studio all the time...there was a mustache party and a Mad Hatter party that I read about on her blog. How fun...I am biding my time- I am getting so many ideas of things I want to do- have art parties and classes just like Dori- I just have to bide my time- I am finding out that homeschooling the kids is a full time job....but there will be time....someday!
See! Look at this kitchen! Happy!
Her art is so fun.
This chandelier! LOVE IT.
The rings! Adorable!

5. Where do you do your best work?
6. What inspires you?
I enjoy surrounding myself with positive, creative, like minded individuals. There are so many people doing so many cool things! It’s amazing!
My family and I have a quirky sense of humor…we love to laugh. So I get a lot of ideas from our crazy, everyday life.
7. What motivates you?
I feel very humbled and happy when someone chooses one of my creations to give as a gift, or to hang on their wall. That is a great feeling!
Thanks so much, Dori! You have brightened our day with your happy colors! (check out her etsy shop)
