Did you miss me?! I was away in the beautiful Caribbean for a much needed vacation. Our first vacation since this little gal joined our life. It’s been FAR too long.
I did break out our matching dresses as promised for the cruise one night. We even matched with white shoes. Oh she was extra thrilled about that. lol She was pleased as punch to show it to Mickey!
Some sweet Daddy love…
And then of course, a conversation with Cinderella. You can’t have a good night with out a conversation with a princess! I love her expression here!
I was also finally able to use my bag made by my good friend Tracey! I wore it all over the ship and carried my camera and all other things. It went to every island with me and always looked great. Traveling handmade!! Echino fabric love. And it is doing double duty here holding a precious magic wand. 😉
And I haven’t shown you too much of this dress yet…it’s next up in the princess sew along series. She was the most precious Minnie Mouse around. So cute in fact that the hotel gave her a Minnie Mouse doll that she has carried with her EVERYWHERE since. They just couldn’t get over how cute she was. (mom pats herself on the back. I made that girl and that dress! lol)
Mickey was of course very excited to see a little Minnie before we boarded the ship.
And we were all thankful when she finally fell asleep that day for a nap. 😉 Love these moments.
And while I made neither the dress nor the beautiful mosaic, I just had to share one last photo (I have oh so many!). Cinderella is a favorite in this house and Bippity Boppity Boo as we call her. So this photo is just so dear to me. It captures so much of our week.
Sewing will begin again soon. But for now, I’m basking in a slow return to reality. See ya’ll real soon! (said in my best Mickey voice)
