Dare to...

be different!

Dare to hope...
even if all hope seems lost.

Dare to dream...
even if the dream seems impossible.

Dare to love...
even the unlovable.

Dare to forgive...
even when it's hard.

Dare to encourage...
even the incorrigible.

Dare to tie a great big shabby bow...

and surprise Princess #1 with something created just for her...
with lots of love from her mommy!

Have a happy day!
Many Blessings!


  1. Loooooovvvvvvvveeeee this! Gorgeous, Jill! Did you use a Cricut?? Lori

  2. Beautiful!!!
    I looooooooove it!
    She will love it too! What a special gift.

  3. The horses were created with a template I created from one of my drawings and then hand cut from different fabrics...would have been a lot faster with a Cricut! :)

  4. Oh that is precious! My little one is such a horse lover too... I wonder if you could do that with paper cutouts? Hmm... I need to think on that.


  5. I love this post on so many levels...the painting is adorable! And to encourage your child to be different--to love the unlovable- and to forgive when it's hard- I needed those words today!

    The bow is great - I need to try that!
