A New Doll for Baby Shower

"The decision to have a to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body." -Elizabeth Stone 

I love making this doll---and made it for a friend of mine using a pattern shared by Emily Winfield Martin, from The Black Apple

I learned how to make a flower from yarn using a kit my daughter bought at a thrift shop.  She came out lovely.  I love this pattern because you can use any fabric for her dress---and find the perfect color that matches the baby's room.


How to Catch Your Dreams

I have been in this body for a while but still feel like a kid at heart and that is why I love this quote.  I have had many dreams that I did not pursue (too scared) and I still have many dreams.  This time, I am catching some dreams---and how do you catch your dreams?  Two words---take action.  Yes, it is sometimes scary.  Yes, you may feel uncomfortable and feel foolish---but that is what life if for---to live your dreams.

Take baby steps or a big leap---it does not matter because you will learn along the way.  Don't wait for perfection, do it now and refine it along the way---that way you have no excuses but are living your dream.

Love your life by living your dream.
