The new Art Hive is fabulous! Every issue keeps getting better and better, thanks to my hard workin' boss ladies (and pals!) Jessie and Angela. They keep outdoing themselves!
Seriously...it's a good one. The cover is all shiny and fancy...the layouts are on point...and the COVER? Every time I look at it...makes me grin from ear to ear! I love it. Great ARTicles inside...including an interview by yours truly...
So who did I interview? Myself...well kinda. Myself in 50 years...if I am lucky to be so AMAZING. You know who it is- my idol, Iris Apfel! (shrieks...passes out for a second...husband gets the smelling salts...I come to...back to keyboard)
I have kind of been sitting on this one for a bit...didn't write too much about it, but back in the Spring I got a chance to interview Iris face to face when she was in town for the premier of her film, Iris, at the Miami International Film Festival. I even got to preview the film ahead of time...I think I watched it 2-3 times...literally crying at my computer...tears of joy...and tears because at the heart of the whole movie is a love story, the story of Iris and Carl...of real partnership...two cats on an adventure, traveling the world, cheering each other on...yeah, you gotta see the film!
My one regret is that I didn't get a chance to take a picture with Iris...they didn't want pics back in the greenroom...and the red carpet was too chaotic...BUT...she sat about 2-3 feet away from me and we talked accessories for about 10 minutes...at one point she actually leaned in and touched my necklace creation and complimented it (passes out again momentarily...sorry, ya'll) AND...I gave her a piece my my heART!
