Let it Snow!

There's still time to get your special Christmas bow for that special dress! I have a bunch of bows in stock, ready to ship within 24 hours. I can also ship most special-orders within 48 hours. That dress just won't be the same without a hair pretty, so send me a line soon! E-mail me at: deannms3 (at) gmail (dot) com.

Here's a flurry of my favorites for this Christmas:
Diana modeling the Olivia in velvet with satin - a perfect style for holiday dresses! Lovin' the sparkle the rhinestone adds!
Here's the Olivia in velvet and sheer:
The "My Little Darling" in black and red - perfect for little heads!
The "Ashlyn" bow with sparkle center:
Oooh, a new one! Made with a large sheer bow, on top of some really fluffy marabou! This one would look so great with a sheer skirt or a tutu!! Hence the name - Ballerina Bow!

Deck the Halls

My favorite bow for this Christmas is the "Olivia" bow in velvet, with either satin or sheer on top. Here's a sampling of what's available:

Velvet with Satins

Velvet bases with sheer on top:

Don't you just love the little rhinestone "bling"? I love how it adds just a touch of sparkle!

Oooh, another exciting anouncement! I now have a "rewards" program!! Don't you love getting rewards for buying stuff you were going to buy anyway??? =)

Now, if you make 5 purchases, your 6th one is 25% off! I have new business cards, with little "stamps" on the back, that I fill in. When it's full, turn it in for 25% off your sixth purchase! No expiration date; this is for e-mail, phone and direct orders only. Online has a different incentive.

Look Mom, No Slipping!

I now offer "Gripzies" Non-Slip Stickies for Hair Clippies! These are very popular, because they can keep a bow in even the finest of hair! Also great for the very active "princess"! Bows stay in great, because the foam conforms to the clip, filling in the gaps caused by the angle of the prongs, or the ribbon used to make the bow. Because there's no longer the "pulling" on the few strands of hair that manage to grip with a plain clip, and no slipping around, you may find more tolerance for wearing bows!! Now that's a good thing!! =)

These are fabulous and super easy to apply! They come as small strips of foam, with an adhesive side.

Simply peel off a strip, place it sticky side up inside the expsed metal prong (not ribbon-covered) of the alligator clip -

Then, simpy close the clip. This makes sure the Gripzie stays right in the center of the prong where it belongs.

Voila! A 10 second fix! And cheap too! I sell these in small packages of 13, and they are so cheap it's silly! But, I think once you try them - you'll love them! And your little one will too! So, then you'll buy more bows, right??? (Suddenly I'm thinking of the "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" book!) =) Oh, and they're latex-free.

What was I thinking?!?

Whew! Three craft fairs in a row! Thankfuly they get a little easier each time. Good thing - since I signed up to do another one this weekend! Make that four weekends in a row! =O Yes, I must be insane!
I kept hearing how good this one is, and then the lady who runs it stopped by my booth and invited me to come. That's really an honor, because that means she liked what she saw. She's being selective about who she allows to come, which is another good thing. And all the vendors who I've talked to about it just go "Oohh, yeah! It's a good one!" So, how could I resist?

This should be an interesting experience, mostly because I'm taking Kenneth along with me. I think we're going to have a lot of fun together!

So, come on out to Osolo Elementary School in Elkhart this Saturday (November 21) from 8-2! As always, there will be a give-away and craft fair specials!

I was so tickled that this came out so well that even Hubby recognized it! Gasp! Amazing, I know! =)

My Little Darling

I wish you all could see these little cuties in person! I've been re-making the left-over bows from last Christmas. They were just plain little things; no wonder they didn't sell! Well, I don't expect to have a hard time moving these little ones!

All I did was add a layer of satin on top, and *poof* so much cuteness!
I named these "My Little Darling" or "Darlings" for short. They're very petite - just over 2 1/2 inches, so perfect for newborns on up!

Come See Me!

Put it on your calender! I'm going to be at the following craft fairs/bazaars:

November 7 at the Feast Banquet Facility in Lakeville (corner of US 31 and Pierce - the Potato Creek State Park road), from 9-3.

November 14 at Jimtown High School in Elkhart, from 9-2.

I love when I get to greet my previous customers and make new ones! There's always craft fair specials and a drawing too!

Want a freebie??

Want a free bow? Here's how: if you have a blog, make a post about my products, include a link to my website and blog, and let me know. Feel free to borrow some pics from my website, or I can send you some. I'll send you a bow of my choice (you can make suggestions, if you'd like)! That's it! How hard is that! I'd be happy to spread some "love" for you as well!
p.s. I don't have plans to have this expire, so feel free to do it anytime. One per person, though. =)

Come See Me!

So as not to leave such a depressing post at the top, I'm adding another one! =)

I will also be doing a craft fair/bazaar (is there a difference in those two terms?) at the Jimtown High School. It's November 14. Should be a lot of fun, so all you Elkhart people come on out and say "Hi!"

On Another Note

Please pray that I get to feeling better soon! (Like, yesterday!) I've been battling the H1N1 for over 2 weeks, and now probably have some sort of bacterial thing going on. Fever, cough, congestion... At least I can swallow again! My family needs their mommy back - and I have too many things coming up now!! =(

Raising the Bar

Now even better - the Bar Bow:

 The larger three sizes are now made on french clips. This way, they lay flatter. I think it's a great improvement. Of course, they call always be put on an alligator clip if you'd prefer.

Also updated - the regular, little mini bar bows that are sold as a set. These are now made with just one looper, so they lay better too. What do you think?

Whoo Hoo Marabou

Finally updated my marabou picture:

Wow! Count 'em - 30 colors! Actually, this picture is already outdated, as I have a soft gray marabou on it's way. Oh well, maybe next year...
