What Would Celina Do?

When Laura of Craftstorming asked me if I would like to participate in a series called “What Would Celina Do?” I, of course, said YES!  I have been a big fan of Celina of Petit a Petit and Family for quite some time.  She is the mastermind along with Jess from Me Sew Crazy behind the online magazine STYLO and was on the Sewing Rabbit team last year contributing amazing tutorials.  If you haven’t visited her blog you need to check it out ASAP.  She is so inspiring and I just love everything she creates.  If you don’t follow her on Pinterest you need to stop reading this post and go follow her NOW.  And then come back to finish reading this post of course!   She has over THREE MILLION followers on Pinterest!  THREE MILLION!!  It’s truly incredible.  Her boards are amazing and you can spend hours and hours looking through them getting so much inspiration and that is exactly what I did for this post.

It was so hard to choose just two pins out of her thousands and thousands but I finally narrowed down my inspiration pins to this:

and this:

and came up with this:


Not only is Celina an amazing clothing designer (she had her own children’s clothing line called laila b) she is a genius when it comes to PhotoShop and Illustrator.  She made an awesome animated video clip of an outfit she created using a dress form to model it.  I remember being truly amazed how quickly she was able to just come up with something like that so I decided I would try to be as cool as her and create a stop-motion video clip of my girls modeling the outfits I made.

When I think of Celina I think true artist.  She is just awesome at everything she does.  Truly truly inspiring!  After having the privilege of contributing to her latest project STYLO Magazine I have been inspired to try to make every blog post of mine look like it came right out of the magazine.  She definitely sets the bar high.

Thank you, Celina, for being so kind and inspiring to me and all your fellow blogger friends and readers!
