Inspiration thursday (with Margot from Icedgrandesoylatte)

This Thursday my inspiration interview is with the lovely Margot. :)

I found her blog and flickr around the time I began my blogging adventure and she has been an inspiration to me since then. Her artwork is lovely and constantly eye candy on those days of much needed creative inspiration. I love her photos and blog and once you check hers out (if you haven't already "favorited" or started "following" you soon will too!

So without further adieu......

Your name:
Margot Miller

Where can we find you? and and flickr

Tell us a little bit about you!
I'm a native new yorker with a passion for fashion, art, and coffee! I aspire to be a children's book illustrator and to walk flawlessly in heels.

Favorite craft or hobby?
Definitely photography! I can't leave my apartment without my camera. Like, ever.

What's next for you?
I am currently working on a collage commission and was also commissioned to do some invitations for a 50th birthday. I'm very grateful to have a full time job, as it let's me pick and choose my freelance jobs!

5 things that make you happy!
In no particular order...
The glee soundtrack
Pumernickle Pretzels from trader joes (might wanna check the spelling)
Sparkly jewelry
Reading recipes (not necessarily cooking them lol)
Converse sneakers

Where do you find inspiration?
My name is margot and I'm a blog/flickr-aholic. I also am inspired by childrens books.

How do you get and stay motivated??
I've always been very driven. I think a lot of artists are. In fact, I think true artists are people with this innate sense of passion. It stems from there!

Where is one place you would LOVE to travel to if you could?
I am dying to go to Greece. Dyyyyiiiiinnnnggg. And I would be lying if I didn't mention that seeing sisterhood of the traveling pants didn't make it my #1 dream travel destination!

Lastly,-Give us 1 random or funny or interesting fact/tidbit about you!!
I prefer my socks to be mismatched :-)

Thank you Margot for allowing me to interview and feature you!!! You have been such a true inspiration for me and I love seeing all that you create!!!!
