Since then Bella has participated in many therapies and we've been waiting and waiting and waiting ... Like many of you know the lists are long. Her favorite is Hippothearpy! Riding a horse is something she looks forward to every week and she absolutely loves being on a horse. Its is probably her favorite activity. Bella loves to explore on a nature walk, be with her family, jump on or off a trampoline! Bella is a very energetic girl who loves giggling and playing. Some of Bella's favorite things are bubbles, balloons, color changing sequins and tickles! She loves being outside or on the road in the car, wherever she is she is always watching everything. She loves to change her clothes and putting together her outfits in her own way. Bella is definitely a little "princess"!
Meet Lilly who's now 7 years old! Lilly is the best little sister. These two play all day long and are understanding when the other needs special care. Lilly is not on the spectrum but she is our brave little trooper. Lilly has Alport Syndrome, a form Kidney Disease.

In the start of our venture into BellasCreativeWear we wanted to make sure we began with a good base. Shirts that were comfortable and soft were of extreme importance. Bella being on the spectrum I know how shirts that are rough, prints that can be felt, tags that are irritating, or stitching that irritates can ruin a day and makes some clothing not an option.
All of our items are printed on 100% Ring Spun Cotton so they will be the softest shirt in your wardrobe. The printing process is DTG (Direct-To-Garment Process) this provides a product that is lightweight and cannot be felt by the wearer. The prints and designs will be long lasting beyond 40+ washes before the shirt or the print even begin to fade. The tags are rip away so there won't be an issue and the stitches are side-seemed into the shirt so they won't lift and rub causing irritation.
