A Holly Jolly Mood

I have shared with you all so many thoughts about my fashion
I think it's not only because it's an expression of who I am
and how I want the world to view me
but because it's so amazingly therapeutic (if that's the right word?)
to dress in a way that makes you happy.
Not bound by any one else's ideas of what is in and what is not
but by what makes your heart stop a beat.

About a month ago I stumbled upon etsy shop nancysneedles
full of sweet little, handmade sweaters
and something inside of me was smitten.
So being the silly girl that I am
I contacted the shop owner and asked if she might be able to make
a toddler sized sweater into big girls
I am sure Nancy found my request very odd but she agreed to try.

I almost cried when I opened the package
I could not have prepared myself for the amount of love and time
put into something so special and unique
made just for me

I know I can't ever truly imagine
the amount of work that goes into creating something so sweet
but I hope Nancy will agree to make me two more sweaters
I can just imagine the ducky sweater in black with white
and sweet pastels for the elephants

Thank you SO much Nancy!
You made this "big" girl very very happy!

I would also like to share a few sneak peaks of my new kitschy christmas kit

This kit has 10 vintage inspired ornament stickers
I just can't wait to share this 35 piece kit with you
I've learned so much since I introduced my first kit
and so this new kit will have a Print Friendly File
for my not so computer savvy friends
but I'll share more about that Friday
as well as a whole heap of fun goodie to get you in the holiday spirit

Happy Jolly week everyone!

I love your cardigan, its the cutest ive seen! I often see childrens things and think - if only they had it in my size. And its that much more special because its hand made.
And your skirt is just gorgeous! I wish I had one like that :)
Your christmas designs are very cute!

Awe Chelsea. You're just the cutest thing and your precious outfit could not look any cutier (or that cute) on anyone else. Nancy did a wonderful job. I just love the colors.
Have a nice day, Tracy :)
