The moment your baby girl is slipped into your arms a special kind of magic occurs. Suddenly you can see within that small bundle endless potential…and you know that this tiny soul you are blessed to raise will have the power to change the world.
It’s a feeling that that doesn’t diminish over the years.
We know. We both are raising girls.
Within them we see their strength, their light, and their goodness….to us, they sparkle. And in a world that seems to becoming increasingly dark we want to encourage them to continue to shine brightly not only for themselves, but to help others as well. And this idea was the inspiration behind our newest line of fabric “Shine Bright”.
“Shine Bright” includes a main print with reminders for our girls such as “never dull your sparkle”, “always leave behind a little glitter” and most importantly that they are “loved”.
It also includes 6 supporting prints:
* “Smarter Than You Think” a fun word search circle print
* “Made to Sparkle” a geometric diamond print
* “Brilliant” a non-directional light bulb print
* “Cross My Heart” a sweet lattice print
* “Glitter” a great blender print
*You Are” a wordsearch print that highlights the words “you are” in gold while more than 40 other words are hidden and waiting to be discovered…words that describe how we feel about our daughters…words like “outstanding”, “smart”, “talented”, etc.
All the prints were designed and named with our sweet girls in mind.
However, when the bolts of fabric arrived and we saw them in person we realized that this idea…and these prints…were about more than our feelings for our daughters (however powerful and real those feelings are).
These prints reflect how we feel about all the women who have freely shared their lights with us…so many strong, resilient, amazing women have helped light our paths. Their sparkle has helped guide the way. Their brilliance has made the world a better place for all of us…and we love them for it.
So while “Shine Bright” was designed with the hopes for our daughters in mind it is dedicated to all the women out there who act as beacons of light.
It is our hope that many projects will be made with this fabric by and given to women who shine (daughters and granddaughters, aunts and cousins, mothers and friends) in a spirit of love and gratitude for one another.
Here’s to strong women.
May we know them.
May we be them.
May we raise them.
