Pretty Princess Attire

So now that Jack Frost has made his annual return, it is dress-up season for those of us that have aspiring princesses. We love to spend time trying on different dresses and shoes and jewelry and tiaras. Since the princesses are outnumbered in this house we like to surround ourselves with girly fun!

My daughter has been looking forward to her girl outing with Grama. They are going to Disney on Ice Princess Classics. I created a special outfit just for the occassion. A tutu and corset top with bow inspired by Cinderella. The corset top is made of light blue and white satin and has silver picot ribbon laced up the front and tied in a bow. The straps are sewn in halter style and tie in a bow behind the neck. The back of the top is corset style closure with satin ribbon laced through ribbon loops in the back and tied in a bow. The skirt is full length tutu with an added light blue satin bustle and finished in the front with a white rose. The set is complete with a huge silver, white, and blue satin bow on a blue satin headband.

I will be adding more styles of this set. I am currently working on a Snow White inspired set.

Holiday 2009 Charity Benefit Tutu Set Giveaway

This is a year that many would soon love to forget. Even those who are normally able to give freely and cheerfully may find it more difficult this holiday season. That is why I hope to bring some extra holiday joy two a couple of little girls this Christmas.

I have been asked to be a part of a Holiday Craft Show, "A Few of My Favorite Things", in Ankeny, Iowa. Here's a link to the Facebook page for more info,

There will be handmade items from local crafters and artisans featured at the show to benefit a local ministry, Ruth Harbor. I am very thankful that I have the opportunity to be a part of this event, and I hope that if you are in the area you may be able to stop out and shop a little. If you stop by my booth I will have a box for an entry to win a free tutu set.
On a personal note, I have a friend who faced an unplanned pregnancy during high school. Her parents chose tough love for her because she chose life for her child. My friend finished school, worked, and had several weeks of bedrest before giving birth to a healthy little girl and giving her daughter to her adoptive parents. What an amazing testimony of love! Thoe many years ago this ministry did not exist. What a blessing it is that Ruth Harbor is there for women who choose life for their children. Help is there during her pregnancy whether the woman chooses adoption or to keep her child.

The winner will receive a tutu and a bloomin flower headband or beanie, and the winner will also be able to choose to have a tutu and bloomin flower beanie set donated to Ruth Harbor or Blank Children's Hospital in their name.

Any orders placed in November will also be entered to win. Tutus and blooming flower headbands and beanies are perfect gifts for baby showers, birthdays, holidays, special occassion photos, and more.
