Double Cheer Bow

Here's a fun new Cheer Bow style:
I'm calling this one simply "Double Cheer Bow". Can be done without the korkers, too.

Ribbon Flower

Here's another new style - and part of the developing "Ribbon Flower" collection:
They look so delicate and feminine, don't they? I don't have a picture on a model yet, but I can tell you they look very darling! I can picture them on pretty much any age.
Here's one made with two flowers stacked on top of each other:

Wedding order

About a month ago (see how far behind I am), I had an order for 8 of the Sheer Princess Bows with spikes for a wedding. I was pleased with how cute they turned out. Wish I could see all those pretty little girls with their bows!

New Style - Spikey Bow

Here's a new addition to the catalog:
This is called the "Spikey Bow". It's a fun, playful look. Perfect for summer! Can be made on a ponytail holder or alligator clip. This one has korkers added to it, which I think is a really cute look! Just imagine the possibilities - different ribbons, ric rac, korkers, tulle - I think I'm going to have a lot of fun with this bow!

I'm back!

I survived and I'm alive! The week before last was a crazy one, filled with emotional ups and downs. The week started out busy planning for the festival, cramming way too many plans into too short of a time. Then things took a different turn when my dear grandmother's health declined. When she passed away early Wednesday morning, I held my breath waiting to hear plans. The funeral was scheduled for Saturday - of course. I hardly knew which emotion to go with - grief from the loss of a much-loved grandma, frustration and despair at losing a great business opportunity, or exhaustion from trying to deal with it all.

Thankfully a couple friends volunteered out of the blue to work my booth for me Saturday. So, I was able to go to the funeral and spend time with my family. It was a special, blessed time. And thanks to a couple dear, sweet, wonderful friends, I was able to do it without frustration and disapointment lurking in the background.

The festival went great, especially for my first year there. I have several home party prospects, and an additional order already. That was one of my main purposes, so that made it seem to worth it.

So this week, I've basically crashed. I'm trying to make it up to my family for neglecting them for so long. We had some fun dinners, went to the library and park... Maybe next week I'll manage to make it up to my house!

What's up?

It's been a while since I've posted, I know. Mostly because I've been so busy making bows, that I don't have time to talk about them! The Maple Syrup Festival is two weeks from this weekend, and I've been working my fingers off trying to get ready. Getting there - I'll have to post a picture of the boxes of bows I have ready now!

I did manage to get a couple new things created:
This is called a "tails-down" bow. I'm not very good at naming things, so it'll probably have to keep that boring name. Unless someone wants to be my un-official, unpaid "namer"! =) Available in two sizes.

The other new thing I've been up to is adding a touch of "personalization" to bows! Check back soon for more info!
