"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.”

I'm back at last with some Christmas craftiness!

Well it has been soooo long since my last blog and sooo much has happened since then. We have sold our house and have begun the search for a new one in a more convenient location. Needless to say, the sewing machine and fabric have been packed away and very little time has been spent creating!

I was desperate to make a Christmas outfit for Gabby so I whipped this one up a few weeks ago.

The fabric is from Spotlight and I think it's good for both Christmas and anytime. The pattern is by Whimsy Couture and can be found here. I love the idea of a romper- still pretty but also practical for an active little girl. This was the first time I had done ruching (sewing with elastic thread) and I am thrilled with the result. Looking forward to showing you a photo of my little girl wearing this one- it's too cold and rainy out today.

Christmas time is my favourite time of the year. I love decorating the house and taking Christmas photos of my kids. This year, I covered some wooden letters with red polkadot fabric and took some snaps in front of the Christmas tree. I got lots of good ones, but here is one of the winners.

And they look good as a decoration too:

I hope you all enjoy the season as we celebrate the JOY of Jesus' birth!
