I know it has nothing to do with Bows, but...


I couldn't resist posting a link to this blog. One of the bow gals on a forum I frequent posted it and I instantly fell in love. What goes better with hair candy than mouth candy. Enjoy.

Any special requests?

Just want to let you know, all of you loyal fans out there...all 2 of you. LOL. I have had some requests for specific types of bows that I will be bringing to Montrose this weekend. If you have anything you would like to see - specific colors maybe - just leave me a comment. I have over 50 colors available. Except white. I am out of white!!! How do you run out of white. So I need to place another ribbon order. Sorry DH, the living room is about to get a little smaller.

I've Been Busy Lately...

You'd think, since I regularly have been staying up past midnight to get ready for my booth at SPUD Days in Montrose on the 23rd, that I would have found the time to update my blog. But, alas, it hasn't happened. So to make up for my silence, here's a slew of pictures to show you what I have been up to. These are just quick snapshots, so pardon the quality...

Pretty Pony Streamers - lots of colors and sizes. I will be making some in school colors too!!!
Polka Dot Bows - These can be done in all sizes. Not a fan of dots? I will be bringing stripes too.
Clippies and Tiny and Small Tuxedo Bows. Also the last of my ladybugs till next spring.
Fun Clippies - There will be lots more of these!!!
Princess Clips - Irresistible to little girls. There are some Princesses missing, watch for them soon.
This Bucket of Headbands kept me up till 4:30 in the morning. I hope they were worth it. If you are from Montrose or Leola, you may see some school colors in there. If you are not, and would like your school colors, I can do them.
Rainbow of Beanie Hats - Fall is coming, the perfect time for these lightweight hats. Pair them with a flower clip or big bow. You can mix and match for endless combinations.
Flower Clips - Big 6" peonies and roses to little 3" gerberas. Gorgeous!!!
Large Tuxedo Bows. These are a nice alternative to the "little girl bow" for older girls.
Medium Tuxedo Bows - The large ones are 5 inches long, and 1.5" wide, these are 4 inches long and 7/8" wide.

I have also been working on lots of Korker Bows. Some to match the woven headbands and some in school colors. I have korked over 70 yards of ribbon, should've taken a picture of that, and will do another 35 yards tonight. So there should be enough Korkers to go around. LOL

Just A Peek

These are some of the things I will be bringing to my upcoming bow parties in July. This is just a small selection of what I make. If you can dream it up, I can probably create it.

Ribbon Room

Okay, for all you fans of my new business. Here is an inside glimpse into why I need to make hair bows. Just so you know I have recently signed up for Ribbon Lovers Anonymous but it doesn't seem to have done any good yet.
Most people call this their Living Room, I have dubbed it my Ribbon Room.

My First Post

Okay, since my website seems to be taking ages to get up and running, I thought this might be a fun way to share some of my bows. Maybe it will make it easier on my wonderful sister who has been a huge help in promoting my new little business.
