“Off all the gifts that life has to offer, a loving mother is the greatest of them all.”
Over the last year, I have developed a true passion for sewing. I decided to take this new hobby to help heal the pain and hurt from the troubles of life. I didn’t have a clue where this journey would go but I knew I didn’t want to stop. My very first completed skirt was for my beautiful daughter Arielle. I started with the intent to sew for me after being inspired by Mimi G and Beaute’ J’adore. My close friend and I decided to take sewing lessons with an instructor for 2 sessions. To our dismay, the skirt was incomplete after the second session and I was truly disappointed and frustrated. That same night, I decided to make an elastic skirt using a video tutorial for Arielle. Even though it wasn’t perfect, my daughter loved it and modeled the skirt so well that I was even more inspired.
Everywhere she goes with a skirt I make, I receive compliments. My daughter is so confident in the skin she is in and over the last year, we both have gravitated to wearing skirt. I have been asked many times if I would sew but I am truly inspired to do a limited edition skirts for special occasions when time permits JUST FOR LITTLE GIRLS!!! Starting this FALL, Arielle and I will be working on a few DIY Projects in addition to working on an awesome sewing Studio. We will be working with a designer from South America in our sewing club at school and plan to learn as much as we can as part of our Mommy and Me “projects”.
I am not sure where this journey may go but I am in for an awesome ride. Hope you enjoyed a few of the AWESOME photos taken at a Morikami Japanese Garden and Museum showcasing her Holiday African print skirt. Enjoy and thanks for stopping BY!!!!
Remember…. “Life is so much brighter when we focus on what truly matters.”
