I am simply overwhelmed by all of your sweet comments and support. I have to be transparent and admit that pregnancy is not easy for me. Emotionally or physically. I know most of you haven't heard my story, or even where the name of this blog or my Etsy shop came from. God has placed it on my heart to share the journey we have taken the past 7 years, but it is difficult for me to imagine even articulating it. Little by little over the next few weeks I will share where I have been and how far the Lord has brought me in faith and trust as I embark on what is my sixth pregnancy. I have faced stillbirth, miscarriages and infertility, yet am laying this baby at the feet of Jesus and fully expecting Him to carry me through the next 25 weeks. Without Him I am unable to even parent my girls, much less stay sane enough to survive growing this new little one. I humbly ask for your prayer that God gives me the words to say and the strength to share....Hard to transition from that, but Halley's Little Mermaid phase has been trumped by Snow White. She has had a crazy growth spurt recently and seemingly overnight outgrew all of her favorite princess shoes that her sweet aunt gave her. I simply can't throw down for a whole new set and she was batting her eyes and giving me lots of "pretty pleases" for some new Snow White shoes. During her nap I got out her red flip flops, dug through my ribbon and fabric stash and within 30 minutes for zero dollars I came up with these:
The bottlecaps are from Wal-mart. I wasn't sure if she would wear them, if the ribbons would bug her, but she hasn't taken them off since. I think these would make a fabulous birthday gift or even party favor. Flip flops are super cheap and who doesn't have ribbon laying around needing a use. I found directions at Polka Dot Birthday on how to make them. Happy flip flopping!
