Treasures from my Closet: Outfit of the Day

Today I decided to wear one of my new outfits! I have on a sparkly striped sweater from The Gap, Levi skinny jeans, and some styling matching boots. It snowed last night so this is my snow princess flow LOL!

And here is a picture of my American Girl doll Cicely. She's wear a casual outfit with some custom bows I made for her. Isn't she fly?!

I'll be back soon with a new accessory - GLASSES! I'm actually pretty excited. I selected some cute pink & black frames with rhinestones and another frame in purple and red. I'll be a nerd but hey, smart girls are cool anyway!

What are some of your favorite outfits, old or new? Do you wear glasses?

Treasures from my Hands - My artwork :)

Hi everybody!

I absolutely LOVE to draw! Check out one of my latest projects. I made this for my daddy for his birthday. Of course he loved it! AND as you can see he had to wear his cake :) Told you everyone in my family has to do that on their birthday. My big brother always runs but we get him anyway! My daddy calls me T.T., Princess, and his little butterfly. I have to admit, I'm a daddy's girl!

I love making cards and different art projects for everyone in my family! Do you like to draw and make things too? Later I'll show you some of the designs I made in my doodle book. One day the fashions I design will be in stores!

I'm Back! Happy New Year!!

Hey everybody!

I'm back! Happy New Year! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday season.

My holidays were fantastic! I went to see a dolphin show at the Shedd Aquarium. Those animals are so cool, smart, and talented! Just like me!

I had to visit with Santa again to make sure he had my list correct. I told him I'd leave a treat to give him energy to get through the night!

 I say he got the message loud and clear! For Christmas I got a lot of stuff! I got a dresser and bed for my American Girl doll Cicely, lots of clothes for both of us, a beanbag, new bedding set (Hello Kitty and very cute), and more!

I also made sure I spent time with my family. That's very important! We had a great time at my auntie's house hanging out. (Ignore my crazy uncle in the back!)

In my family we believe Jesus is the reason for the season. So I also spent time in church. I said a speech, sung songs with the other kids, and even did a praise dance! Check me out :) Aren't I cute? I made all the tutus for the girls in the dance.

I have still been really busy but I promise to make more time to spend with you! I already have a few things I'd like to share: some very cute outfits (mine and Cicely's too), an update on my business, some cute artwork I made, and just more of me!

How were your holidays? Did you get or do anything special?

My Birthday!

Hi everyone!

In my last post I told you all how busy I had been - that has NOT stopped! I also told you my birthday was coming up! Well it has come and gone and I have to say IT WAS THE BEST DAY EVER!! Actually I got to celebrate over TWO days - I'm so special!

The first day my mom and I went to American Girl Place Chicago. I finally got me an American Girl doll! My doll has brown skin, brown curly hair, and brown eyes just like me! I named her Cicely and she is now one of my favorite dolls! I spent a few hours there looking around, shopping, taking pictures, and having dinner at the diner. They even brought me out a birthday cake and everyone in the restaurant sung to me! Here are some pictures.

 I made myself a red and white tutu with matching hair bows. Pretty cute huh?!

The next day I had a birthday party at the bowling alley. The party had a Mardi Gras theme. Me and all my guests had feather masks, bead necklaces, and light up bracelets. We bowled, ate pizza, took pictures, and had more cake! I got lots of great gifts. I made a tutu to match my party theme in green, yellow, and my favorite color purple! Here's some pictures from the party.

I really enjoyed my birthday! Since the celebrations I have been back to business making tutus and bows for lots of people for Christmas. I did manage to sneak in some fun at the Winter Wonderfest, Build-A-Bear, American Girl Place (again), and the Lego store though! Oh, and a visit with Santa & Mrs. Claus! Remember I did say work hard PLAY HARD!!!!

See you again soon friends!

My First Date!

Hi everybody!

Last Saturday I had my first date. Don't panic, it was with my daddy! We went to my school's Father-Daughter Dance. Me and my dad put on our dressy clothes and shoes. Check us out!

 We headed out for the the dance. The theme was a masquerade ball so we had to wear masks. My dad wore a black mask. I did too but I added a sassy feather to mine :)

At the ball we danced together and did the Soul train line. My Dad did the moonwalk! He is great! I loved the father daughter dance!

Have you ever been to a father daughter dance? How did you like it?

Halloween & My Business!!!

Hello everyone! Sorry I have taken so long to make another post. Forgive me? :) I think you will when I tell you want I've been up to.

For Halloween a couple weeks ago I dressed as Trinity-Belle, my own version of Tinkerbell. Check out my reversible green and yellow tutu, black leotard & leggings, & wings! I topped it off with a yellow butterfly clip. To make everything even more special I dressed my doll Tiana up as a rainbow fairy. She is wearing a tutu dress that I made personally for her plus a hot pink & purple bow my mom made!

I did not go trick or treating because it was too cold. I did go to a Hallelujah  celebration at my church though. We also had a party at school where everyone dressed like their favorite book character and shared their stories with us. It was fun seeing my teachers dressed up. I wish I had a camera to show you all pictures.

How was your Halloween? What were you dressed as?

Since I've been missing in action I'll add a bonus to this post! Other than schoolwork and dance the other reason I have been busy is I have my own business!! I am so excited! I make tutus and hair bows. Last Saturday I had my very first craft show so I had to make a lot of stuff to sell. My mom works for me and she helped since I can't handle the glue gun yet :) Here are a few pictures.

The show went great and I had a good time. My nana, cousins, aunt, godmom, and godsisters all came to support me! There were lots of people selling lots of stuff. It was fun getting their business cards and giving them mine. I can't wait until I have another show!

I have to go now - I have 7 tutu orders to fill! I still can't believe I have a business. I want to be a fashion designer and my mom says this is a good way to start building my dream. What do you want to do or be when you grow up?!
