What I love about inspiration, is that it isn't a replica of where the original inspiration came from, but rather a creative twist on what originally sparked the desire to create. As an artist, I hope that people who look at my work are inspired to get creative and design something that they find beautiful and makes them happy. Inspiration comes in many forms. It can be in an amazing sunset. The most intense pink of a rose bush. Or even the wafting aroma of a crockpot recipe. Today it was from a fellow friend, and blogger. She's amazing at creating fun clothes for her girls on a whim and they turn out great. She also gives her creations snazzy names, and I followed suit. So, I pulled out some bandanas, dish towels, and ribbon and set to work! Here's what I came up with!

I call this one the "dazzle me" dress.

This one is the "giddy up" dress. I plan to make 2 more like this one in red, white & blue for the fourth of July this weekend! Another trip to Hobby Lobby!

This is probably my favorite. I made it out of 2 clearance dish towels that I fell in love with. I purchased them over a year ago because I loved the prints, but didn't know what I would do with them. Well, ta-da! The "garden" dress is born.

And my Vanessa models it perfectly!

If you've been inspired by what I created today, comment about it. Tell me what inspired you and what you created as a result. Happy designing!
