How to make Tinkerbell Curtains

I found this fabric at WallMart it’s a soft purple with Tinkerbell on it. In case you were wondering yes my 7 year old loves Tinkerbell. See these curtain were not store bought I made them with my hands and a lot of patience. I hate sewing but love to do creative things like this. I bought a yard of fabric which was on sale and I got it super cheap for around 4 dollars I cut the fabric in half and sewed the sides with a back stitch as showed in the first photo so you can’t see the thread on the outside. I also found a curtain rod for about 5 dollars went to the dollar store and picked up some shower curtain hooks I like the clipped on hooks and the look of gold so that’s what … content continues here →

My thoughts on blogging and sharing my thoughts online.

My thoughts on blogging and sharing my thoughts online. I think the fear of putting myself out there isn’t there becasue I never cared about or began to wonder if others laughed at me. I simply have a I don’t care what others have to say that would be addressed towards me in a negative way that is one of the boundaries I learned to put in place a long time ago. People question and thought I was wasting my time because I choose not to blog for money but selflessly blog to show others how to have compassion. For the people who are living with rare genetic disorders in general often feel forgotten or ignored in support groups because how can they even fathom what life is like for a parent. How can they know as much as a … content continues here →

Genetic Test came back positive for 22q11.2 deletion now what’s next ?

I remember over 10 years ago when I got first diagnosed and couldn’t find one adult or doctor who knew what to do with adults. Sadly to this day I still have the issue of so many doctors who are specialist in this disorder who don’t know what to do with adults because they have only delt with children. If you are waiting on a genetic test result please remember no matter the result it does not change who you are as a person or who your children are. It is not your fault. You did nothing wrong.  There is nothing you could have done to prevent this. Some may argue but you knew you had this disorder and you still had a child. Yes that is my own case and people ignore me because of my pro life views … content continues here →
