I love little girls dresses. I love them smocked and embroidered, embellished and hand sewn with love. I have seven daughters and one of the best parts about that is the fun I had making beautiful clothing for them.
When I saw this stamp on a card by Stacy (JBGreendawn) I was so tempted to go buy it, but you know, you just never know if you’ll really use something like this. Today when I was looking through images friends have sent me to try, I found this! I’d totally forgotten that another friend, Janice, sent me these! This is a perfect example of why I love image sharing. I’m on my way to buy this stamp when I’m done posting this. I LOVED coloring it and have a dozen ideas for how I want to use it. I had talked myself out of the idea just seeing it used. Using it sold it for me.
I called it jejunity because it is the essence of these dresses–childhood and innocence. And because it starts with a j and sounds better than juvenile.
