Super Cute ArtFire Collection!

"Girly Girl," an ArtFire Collection curated by TheMushroomsDoor, is super cute and has me even more ready for spring!  Please check it out and rate it 5 stars if you get a chance.  You can find it here.
My Spring Tutu in Purple, Pink and Blue was featured in this collection, amongst many other cute items catering to the likes of little girls everywhere.
This is one of my favorite tutus ever!  

ArtFire Collections can be curated by anyone with an ArtFire account.  You simple search for items that you like, add them to your collection, and then publish it.  It can be set to automatically email the artist who created the item so that they can share your collection with others.  It's a great way to shop by theme or see like items and it's a fun way to show others what you like, sort or like Pinterest.
You can see one of my curated collections in the banner to the right on my blog.  I have created three ArtFire Collections. Please feel free to  visit and  rate them 5 stars as well!  You can find them on the links below.

I'm Making My Boss a Tutu!

Yesterday afternoon a colleague came into my office and asked if I could help her out on a project she is working on.  (I'm a Reading Specialist at an elementary school when I'm not making tutus and other girly things.) I said, "Sure! What do you need?"  She explained that she is working on a project and she needs me to make a tutu. I don't want to give away any surprised to others in our school district who may be reading this but I was super excited to make the tutu you see below!

I have to admit, this is probably the strangest tutu request I've had yet, though I have had some unusual ones.  Who would you like to see in a tutu?

Shimmery New Pixie Tutu!

I've been thinking about this tutu for weeks but this was my first chance to make it!  I got red and black shimmer tulle in December and thought it would look really cool together.  Red and black are also my high school's colors (Go Tigers!) and the colors of a lot of sports teams so this would be great for a little cheerleader.
New pixie tutu with shimmer tulle!

I doubled-up a red piece and a black piece when I tied the tulle on so that it is super full and cute.  It doesn't look lie a layer of red/a layer of black because it isn't.

A red satin bow finishes the look
The shimmer tulle just adds another dimension of elegance. I love working with it!

At $12, this is an extremely affordable way to dress-up your little lady for the next big event.  I can make it in any color combination. Just message me for details!  I also offer the pixie tutu in non-shimmer tulle (regular tulle!) for $8 or glitter tulle for $12.
