A few years ago, I received a Facetime from one of the smiliest little girls I'd ever seen. I knew the second I met her, I knew we'd have a special relationship and that even though I have a few years on her, she would be a major source of inspiration for me. Her name is Isabella, and like me, she has type 1 diabetes. Isabella is a triplet, and with the love and support of her amazing siblings (Mia & Max), and INCREDIBLE parents Kristina and Greg, she is growing up to be a fearless lil' goddess who tackles her diabetes with guts and grace. This design is a nod to a shirt her parents hand-made her on her first diaversary. This week marks her 5th year of living with type 1. Learn more about her story here: http://inspiredbyisabella.com/ A portion of the proceeds from this shirt will be donated to Beyond Type 1. Learn more about BT1 here: http://beyondtype1.org/

For fans of this group of well-known women designers. If you recall, the Sugarbakers of Atlanta opened their own interior design company. The four women - Julia Sugarbaker, Suzanne Sugarbaker, Charlene Frasier Stillfield and Mary Jo Shively - took on any job they could find, always completing the task with class and wit.
