A short note and an even shorter little lady

To let you know I am (finally) working on a batch of new Flutterbutts that will be listed on my shop in near future. One might say, it's about time too!

In the meanwhile, meet little Tamar - a very special custom ordered Flutterbutt I recently finished.

Isn't she cute, with her little shoes?

Almost forgot - Also in a couple of weeks, I will be holding an international giveaway on my fashion blog. I will keep you guys updated here as well, so you can register if you want to win a nice prize.

It Gets Better

I have a confession: I am straight. Utterly and completely straight.

And yet, when I came about the It Gets Better project, I teared up while watching some of the wonderful videos on their website. 

The goal of this project is to show gay, lesbian and transgendered youth, especially suicidal ones, that a good future does wait for them - one filled with love, success, friends, fun, joy and all other things grown ups know there is to life, which is sometimes invisible to young people.

But I also relate to the message - I was bullied for many years as a child. I was too different, too sensitive, too desperate for love, too loud, too silly, too smart and on top of all - too fat. One of the great wonders of my life (to me) is how I managed to grow up to be a loving compassionate woman and not a bitter, spiteful, miserable person. Somehow, I always find the power to continue - despite adversities and no matter how lonely I feel.

So I relate to the wonderful message of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and would like to add to it - No matter how "strange" you are, persevere, educate yourself about being fabulous and reach out to people you can relate to and don't lose hope, because no matter what injures your soul - It does get better.

My birthday party

Last night I held my Birthday party, which was tons of fun!

There were far too many people to seat..

Everybody brought yummy foods and assorted beverages. My favorite were the vodka jello shots, I was finally able to enjoy, not having to drive home after the party.

My friend Tamar even made a cake featuring my new tattoo!

I also received many wonderful gifts - books, and jewelry, and accessories and a spa visit!

Finally, my friends took this very short film as a contribution to Zia Kitaro's exciting new project Bits of My Life in Israel. The idea behind this project is to share moments of life in Israel, unedited but refined to 30-90 second films that will show the world who lives here and illustrate that there is more to Israel than politics and conflicts. Though what you see in this specific film is a conflict between myself and a snail who lives on my roof garden.

I plan to film several bits of my life during the next weeks, and will be sharing them with you here.

So that was my birthday party. I am blessed to have so many wonderful friends I love to have come celebrate with me. This is one year celebrating was mandatory!
