"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.”

Buttercup bag for Libby

Today marked the 21st birthday of my youngest cousin, Libby. She is so lovely and I love that we still like to hang out despite the fact that we are at such different stages of life. Libby was the flower girl at our wedding when she was 10 years old. How special!

This is a cute little bag that I made for Libby's Birthday. It is called a 'Buttercup bag" and the free pattern and tutorial can be found HERE. How great is it that people share their ideas and patterns on the internet? I love it. This one is really easy, fully lined and closes with a magnetic clasp. It also has a little pocket inside for your mobile. There are countless possibilities for embellishing this pattern. I have so many ideas and can't wait to make another one.


Happy Birthday Lovely Libby!
