Congatulations, Tula, you can now say that you have, indeed, won a contest. You proved to me what a little independent lady you really are. I don't think when I was eight years old I would have had the guts to leave a bold statement on a blog for all the world to read. I shortened the necklace for you because, contrary to your assumption, it was not made for a little girl, it was made for a woman. But you showed me the little woman in you and I would be a heel-of-a-mom not to pick you as the winner. Yes, you sure are my best little ballerina and YES, you ARE a funny little girl. You're the BEST and I love you more than words can say!
