It really makes me feel good that we are all able to do this for you guys. I know it is a small thing in the scheme of everything but I know it will bring smiles to both you and Isabelle! So thank you!!!!

Isabelle is going to be receiving some of the cutest Disney customs ever...you guys are gonna freak with excitement. You know how excited I am...I can barely keep a secret like this. I so want you to see the outfits but I want you to be surprised to when they arrive too!! Hahahaha...so yeah...no stalking the DisBoutique thread for awile....hahahaha!!!

I am so glad we are friends, and I hope we can meet in real life sometime soon. You know I am always here for you, anytime, just a phone call away. It has been so wonderful to talk to you on the phone and to talk to Isabelle too. She is an absolute sweatheart!! You guys are always in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks again for all the thoughtful words. You are an AMAZING woman, you truly are!!!!!

Hugs to you, my friend!
Beth
You know I love you, Girly!!!

I wanted to share a few of the customs I Hand- Sewed last year. Some of them are extra cute pictures anyway!



This had pink around the hem of the pants when I finished.





Levi had a Woody set to match!

I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your son. I cannot even begin to imagine what you and your family have gone through. I am sure that it will be hard to go back to WDW without Levi but I hope it brings back many great memories.

It looks like you had a great time at the St Louis Zoo. My family loves to go there on occasion. I is one of the best zoos we have ever been to.

Your daughter is beautiful and I love the custom outfits you made, I wish I had that kind of talent. I guess it is a good thing I have boys.

From your itinerary it looks like you will have a great trip. I can't wait to read more!!


Melissa

I remember you so clearly from when the disboutique thread first got started because I was blown away by the outfits you created--and all by hand! When you posted the pics on the thread, I knew some serious love and dedication had to go into each and every stitch of those outfits for you to so patiently do all that work by hand. I was, and still am, amazed. I remember thinking, hey, if she can do this by hand, maybe I can give sewing a shot too. You inspired me to make some very special clothes for my own children.

I heard about your tragedy soon after it happened and I cried my heart out. I barely knew you at all, but you and your little ones touched my life, and I couldn't begin to imagine your pain. I've held my boys, and my baby girl a little closer ever since. God bless you and your family. May you all find the strength and courage to move forward and once again know joy. May your little angel find peace and happiness as he smiles down on you and your family until you meet again.


ETA: I had a sneek peek at some of the big give outfits. You and your daughter are in for a real treat! I can't wait to hear all about your reactions.

Thank you. I'm glad I could encourage you to sew again, I've heard that a couple of times now! Protect them the best you can, that is what I did. Unfortunately things aren't foreseen. We can't protect them from everything, although we feel like we can (or should, for that matter), then if something, anything unexpected, should ever happen you feel like a failure as a mom.

You should not feel like a failure as a mom. You did all you could do.

I am one of the ones making an outfit and a couple of other things for the BIG GIVE. I can't wait to see Isabelle in the outfit I'm making for her. I'm glad I came over here, because I now have faces to put with names.
