Love Vera Bradley?

I do! I'm pretty sure I'm getting a Vera Bradley Daisy Daisy Hipster bag for my least I've dropped enough hints to think my husband and kids will get it right. Okay, I've gone so far as to buy the bag I want and tuck it into my husband's closet. How's that for dropping a hint?

So I'll need to trade in my Java Blue wristlet for a new Daisy Daisy one. I made them over the weekend, and I love how they came out.

You can find them in my Etsy store. I have lots of current fabrics, including Hope Garden, Cupcakes Green and Purple Punch, finally!

This sweet little girl Evie modeled some new, simple toggle headbands for me. She did a beautiful job, as usual! I'll be adding these solid color headbands this week to my website for a great price, so check back if you like how they look! They're great for any age and can be adjusted to fit anyone.

Thanks, Evie!

Smurfs Up!

Remember these little blue guys? If you were young in the 1980's, you'll remember the Smurfs! This week I was a guest with Blossom Leigh Boutique for their Retro Toy launch. How fun to bring back the Smurfs with such style!

Ready to Ship Deal!

Grab these if you love them, because they won't last long. A set of citrusy bows inspired by Moda's Fresh Squeezed line of fabrics. Just $8.99 for the set of bows (other accessories are not included.)
In the Ready to Ship section, while they last!

Baskets are Blooming...

It might not feel like Spring just yet here in New England, but it sure does look like Spring in my dining room! I've enjoyed looking at these, but soon they will be carefully packed and shipped off to a customer in Turkey. They have a long journey ahead of them!

The first is a 24-piece Deluxe Bow Bouquet.

And this is a 12-piece Medium Bow Bouquet

These are available on my website and can be customized to fit a theme for a baby shower or a birthday party. There are additional photos on my website if you'd like to see!

Raggedy Ann & Andy

I had the pleasure of working with Carrie of PunkyFaeDesigns on this set of Raggedy Ann and Andy bows to match two Raggedy sets that she made. She surprised me with these beautiful pictures, taken by Lynne of Magical Moments Photography.

The bows
are offered this week on eBay. Thanks Lynne and Carrie!

Where have I been?

I'm sorry I left this blog rather unattended lately! But I'm back, with lots of exciting things going on.

First I want to share this bow bouquet that I made for a customer who wanted pink, brown and ivory shades. When it was finished, it was my favorite one ever. Of course, that changes every time I make a new one!

I made three more baskets this morning and I'll share pictures next time.

So really, what's been going on? The website continues to be very busy. I'm currently working on orders that were received three weeks ago. Many of you have noticed that I haven't kept up with the recent Gymboree lines, and that's a result of the website being so busy. But if you want a bow for a new line, don't be afraid to ask me. Sometimes the only way I can get to a new line is if someone lights a fire under me to do it! Once I'm back at a reasonable shipping time (one to two weeks) I'll catch up with the lines I've missed.

My design group (BijouCo on eBay and Etsy) has been busy with Spring launches. We just finished our "Mary Mary, Quite Contrary" launch, and next week (March 17) we'll launch's a fun one, with a great giveaway! I'm not sure I can leak the details on the giveaway yet, but I'll post as soon as I can tell you!

But for now, here's a little taste of what the theme might be...

Isn't Piper cute? She was drawn by BijouCo designer Danielle, of 2the9s*boutique. Come back to visit my blog later this week, and I'll have more information on the giveaway!
