"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Every little girl needs a tutu!

Another girly thing I made yesterday is this cute tutu. It was so so easy and Gabby loves it. When I showed it to her for the first time she said, "Awesome!" I have never heard her say that before! She calls it her 'dancing skirt' and boy does she dance!  I love turning up the music and dancing with my kids. So much fun! My nearly 5 year old son, Luke, loves to dance and decided he wanted a tutu as well! In the end, he settled for a little tutu for his soft toy lamb. Luke helped me make the tutu for his lamb. He is my alternative, creative, 'outside the square', funny boy. He keeps the family entertained with his little quirks and witty comments.

To make the tutu, cut a piece of elastic to fit waist. Sew ends together. Tie strips of tulle onto elastic until it is all filled up. Easy!

  1. Hi There Sweetheart!!! How wonderful it is to see your blog! I'm thrilled that I will be able to actually see what you love to do each day and to see pics of the children and daddy....maybe Grandma, Poppy and Ma as well. Have a chat to everyone else in the family and "get them blogging" p-l-e-a-se...lol.
