I AM Princess Tiana!!!

I watched Princess and the Frog for the first time last night! I had to dry away the tears throughout most of the movie, felt like I was watching a movie about myself. I was going to retire my Princess Tiana themed set at the end of this month. After watching the movie, I feel so blessed to have made so many sets for so many little girls (kinda like the momma at the beginning of the movie)... I'm also that girl (Tiana) who's always working, never having time to have fun.. so focused on a dream.. Like the song she sang in the movie, "I'm almost there"...

Yesterday was one of those days, that I wondered if Posh is what I'm supposed to be doing with my life. I work so hard, I often wonder if what I do makes a difference at all..I was taken aback by the irony of the similiarity of Tiana's story to how I grew up, I now see that it is no mistake that The Princess Tiana themed set is my best seller. God definelty has a way of smiling on us. I'm so thankful to God for using me through Posh.. Even if its in just a small way. I'm just gonna keep dreaming..the same as I did when I was a little girl. Anything is possible if you believe and trust in God.

For those of you who may not know, I grew up in the lower ninth ward of New Orleans, LA, moving to the Florida projects at the age of 10. I dreamed of owning a NOLA mansion as a little girl. St. Charles Ave, in New Orleans boast the most magnificent homes I'd ever seen. To-date, I still dream of living like a Princess in one of those old-world NOLA mansions! A girl can dream rt :)

I've come a long way since those days I looked out of the window of our second floor apartment in the projects, dreaming past the clouds of what I would one day become. I'm still a work in progress, but by God's grace I AM that Princess that I always dreamed of being!

Through your wonderful designs you give our little girls the chance to be princesses! Kyndal wants to dance around in her tutu! She says "Mommy can I wear my "burfday" dress"! I had to hide it!
