Helping the Bride: Guest Post with Atlantic Atlantis

Good morning everyone! I have another guest post for you today. I'm still working on relaxing and organizing after the big day. This one comes from a friend from Newfoundland, who I met months ago through my blog. Very exciting! Thanks so much Sarah we all need a little artistic inspiration in our lives :)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi everyone! My name is Sarah and I am visiting from Atlantic Atlantis. Sweet Margot became a blog friend of mine sometime ago, and I am happy to be guest posting for her once again!
One of the biggest sources of inspiration for me is other people's art. I love to see what comes out of person's mind and hands. It's amazing the creations that can spring from paper or fabric or clay. And nothing trumps seeing it in person! I love to visit the local galleries in my city and see the beauty that has been made all around me.
Earlier this week I headed to a gallery to view a collection done by a local artist, Rachel Ryan, entitled "Waking Dreams". I thought it would be fitting to share a couple of the photos I took on Margot's blog, as she too is so crafty with the sewing machine! Have a peek...

Magical, no? Tiny scraps of fabric and thin thread woven together to create beautiful art. Each piece told a story and I immediately went home and dug out my own sewing machine!
So when you feel like you are stuck artistically, it takes nothing more than a walk through a museum, gallery, - or even the internet! - to get those creative juices flowing again. And who knows, maybe someday someone will see your art as inspiration too. ♥
