Made weak by time and fate,
but strong in will;
To seek, to strive, to find, and not to yield.

Side Note:
The fork. or Also known as "A Dingle-hopper" Reminds me of one who not only had amazing hair (that I would pretend I had as I swam in our pool as a young girl) but also for me represents a young woman who loved learning about everything and anything. Who pushed past barriers and boundaries to find her place in this world. In this industry education is key and you are always always learning. Everyday! And with that requires perseverance to reach goals. The industry of beauty is all about testing, pushing and surpassing barriers and boundaries. This industry is truly SWEET!!!!

Girlie Fun

Ok girls. I am so excited that I now can fully enjoy LITTLE GIRL STUFF! Here is my latest creation inspired by my friend Wendy Lee who had some at her fun boutique she had at her house. The pink one is size 0-6 month and the purple around 1-2yrs, depending on the child of course. Brock fits into the purple one nicely ;P He'll be 2 in Oct.
I'm thinking of doing custom orders. For example - The price for these would be $20 not including shipping.
These prices would be for sizes 0-2 yrs at "ballet" length. For larger sizes and an option for longer length, the price would increase. I'm unsure how much because I haven't made a larger one yet but I'm thinking around $35. Also, swavarski crystals could be added (think sprinkles of sparkle) for an extra $10.
When I get my bracelet thing going (hopefully sooner than later) I would love to do a set with a matching bracelet. HOW CUTE WOULD THAT BE!?!?!
I think I might be making myself one for Halloween. Options: Cute Witch, fairy, angel, princess. I'm leaning towards witch. Black leggings, black sparkly toile skirt maybe with either orange or purple toile and ribbon sprayed down with the fun fabric glitter, black shirt and a fun withes hat! So simple and so fun. Although, It would be fun to do a princess themed one to go with my tiara. ( I keep one on my jewelry armoire to remind me that I am of royal birth, a daughter of a King as Jenny Philips would say)
NOTHING CAN TURN AROUND A CRAPPY DAY LIKE PUTTING ON YOUR PRINCESS BALLET SKIRT AND A TIARA. ALL PROBLEMS NO LONGER MATTER. WHY??? CAUSE YOUR A PRINCESS!!!!! Bran has come home to me wearing my tiara before. "Bad day?" he asked. "Not anymore" I said.
I totally hate trick or treating but I love dressing up with the boys.
