Inspirational People

Isn't this lovely?  Judy Ginns makes these wonderful creations, and she used my fabric for the beautiful designs on this post.  Squeal!!!!!  Judy lives in Queensland and sells her designs at a beautiful little shop:

Footprints on the Beach, in Mooloolaba, Queensland.

I love the names in Australia, especially Queensland.  They are so charming.  Judy's creations don't often make it to the web site, because they are sold right away.  I am not surprised.

I met Judy when she first purchased some of my fabric.

Then, she was so kind to send me photographs of her creations.  You might remember the post I wrote a while back, called Little Girl Inspiration.

Now she has sent me these photographs, and I am thrilled at what she creates using my fabric.

sigh.  this one and the Little Ballerina were printed in Cotton Voile.

Just look what she did with my Alice in Wonderland fabric.

Judy inspires me.  I printed these photographs out and put them on my inspiration board.

I just sent Judy another parcel of fabric, and I can't wait to see what she creates with these.  Now I am so inspired that I am on a whirlwind creative spree.  I am working on some new little girl designs because of her inspiration.

Another inspirational person is Anita from Castles, Crowns and Cottages.  She creates these lovely heart sticks and sells them on her etsy shop.  Well, Anita's package arrived dressed in pretty tissue paper and with some lovely tags.  I was inspired to create a Valentine's arrangement with her embellished heart stick, and I put it next to her Valentine.

Last year Anita sent me the little Valentine with the girl holding a heart stick, which I fell madly in love with.  I thought she should really have an etsy shop.  And now she does, it's called Castles, Crowns and Cottages.  Anita inspired my fabric which I call Anita's Harp inspiration.

So stop by and see her lovely creations.  Just like Judy, she barely puts her creations up for sale when they are immediately sold.

Today is Pink Saturday, and Bev, from How Sweet The Sound is hosting another Pink filled weekend.  The song for this post is Thank Heaven for Little Girls.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Oh how sweet to see your work being used in such lovely, creative ways. The way that the little ballerina dances right around that outfit is inspired. It wouldn't work any other way...a true melding of clothing design to the fabric design. I hope to get back to follow your links later today!
