Having a Daughter Has Changed Me

Being a mommy to a little girl has certainly changed me. I was never a girly girl. I grew up with an older brother on a street full of boys. Even when I started branching out and making my own friends I was still a rough and tumble, sports playing, stuffed-animals-over-dolls kind of girl.

Now that I have a daughter (who has the most fantastically fun hair to play with!) I find myself with a life sized doll to dress up. And while she is pretty tough - at 20 months she's the size of an average 3 year old, and has 2 older brothers to wrestle with - she's also very girly. Every bag is a purse, every doll is carried around in a stroller or wrapped in a blanket, and every day I'm playing right along! What's happened to me!? What other changes do little girls bring to their mommies, I wonder.

I've also been branching out into some more girly items for my shop, which I hope to show here on the blog soon. First up is the super-cute, no fuss small messenger bag I mentioned in the last post.

It's really just big enough (8x10) to carry your essentials, and features a magnetic snap to close the main compartment, and a zippered pocket on the front. That should help keep a little separation of items for better organization. I love the strap too! Very easy. It's long enough to wear across the body, or because it's skinny, you can tie it up to different lengths to wear at your shoulder or around your waist. I love mine and use it everyday on jaunts out with the kids!

More detailed photos of this new style can be seen in the SewArtsy shop or in my newest Facebook photo album.

Hope your summertime is full of sunshine and happiness! Happy Wednesday!

I was always girly, but my daughter has pushed me over the top-it's so fun, isn't it? Love your new girly-girl offerings!
