Most of you know Tira as just one of the naughties, my little niece that I love with all my heart, that has worn her snow white dress since I finished it on Halloween. But as far as Rae Gun goes, she really was the start of it all together. I found out my sister was pregnant with a little girl, I started making clothes for this new baby, people started complimenting me on them, so I decided to give Etsy a shot. And here we are on her 3rd birthday and Rae Gun is a real business and more. Little Tira gave me back my love for creating, sewing, and celebrating family (others and my own) that hadn’t even realized I missed.

Happy 3rd Birthday sweet Tiraya. She’s in Thailand with my parents visiting relative for a couple weeks but here are some of my favorite shots of her birthday party that we had last week.
Some Highlights: My mom made the cutest Dora and Star Mountain cake. All morning Tira was talking about her “beautiful cake”. We had the playroom set up with balloons and music and disco lights. Of course we had a variety fantastic food and wonderful company. The girls all found the dress up tub and were wearing tutus and petticoats of various types (it was cuteness overload). And Tira received a number of princess dolls which Lanna immediately snuck away with, they were a big hit.
